When it comes to the best hair care techniques, it is important to remember that there are some mistakes that many people may be using without knowing it. With all the different styles and products you use on your hair on a daily basis, you can imagine just how much damage your hair experiences. By learning what easy natural hair care tips to follow, you can be sure to have strong and healthy hair, no matter what you do to it!

Check out these top 10 hair care mistakes to avoid:

  • For those of you who are planning on growing out your short hairstyle, it is important not to avoid the hairdressers for months at a time. It can be easy to not get your hair trimmed because you are trying to grow it out, but this can lead to split ends and frizzy hair over time.

  • Not conditioning regularly is a very common mistake. It can seem like too much of a hassle at 8am, but conditioning is something that should be done daily. This can make your hair shinier, smoother and less frizzy if you continue conditioning daily for more than a month at a time.

  • Preparing your hair for heat activated treatment appliances is something everyone should get into the habit of doing. You would be amazed just how much your curling iron or flatiron can damage your hair and by using a heat defense spray, you can help minimize the damage.

  • Choosing the wrong hairstyle for your face is a common mistake and this can easily be prevented. By researching the most flattering hairstyle for your face shape you are creating a younger and chicer look for yourself.

  • Avoid trying to make your hair into something that it isn't. There are always new trends and styles in your face, but this does not mean you have to try and recreate them all on yourself. Not everything fits everyone's facial shape and when you try to make your hair into something it isn't, it never works out.

  • Choosing the right products can be a harder thing than you may think. Avoiding using the wrong products can only be accomplished by trial and error.

  • Dark roots are one of the biggest mistakes to avoid! No one likes to see dark roots when their hair color of the day is blonde, take the time to touch up your roots at home or with your hairstylist to avoid this common mistake.

  • If you like to pull you hair back in braids or ponytails, be careful how tight you pull them as the band is literally ripping at your hair the tighter you try and pull it.

  • Avoid over brushing and use a detangle product if you have a lot of knots after your shower. This can not only rip your hair right out but it really damages your hair's cuticles.

  • Do what you can to avoid the cheap coloring systems you can use from home, they have the power to not only greatly damage your hair but you are taking a great risk that the color may or may not turn out!

It is important to take the time to make sure how you are treating your hair is correct because you can only continue damaging your hair for so long before the time comes to do something about it. Take the precautions to treat and care for your hair the way it deserves to be cared for.
