Hair crime #1
Tying up wet hair
Hands up, who’s pulled their hair into a quick ponytail after they’ve showered at
the gym? That’s probably all of us – no one likes wrestling with the hair dryer
after they’ve gone five rounds with the cross trainer. But wet hair is super fragile,
and tying it up can cause root damage, hair breakage and even hair loss,
especially around your hair line. No, thank you.
Hair crime #2
Using the wrong elastics
The thinner your hairband, the more stress it puts on your strands, which can
lead to breakage. Replace those harsh hair ties with an innovative Bandzee. Made
from supersoft elastic trim (similar to the kind found on a pair of knickers), it
won’t damage your locks or leave an annoying kink when you take it down.
Hair crime #3
Cutting your own fringe
Hairdressers name this as one of their biggest bugbears. And it isn’t just a style
risk – it can actually damage your hair. The standard scissors you’d use at home
have very dull blades, which if used on your locks, can create split ends. Trust us,
leave the cutting, trimming and shaping to the professionals.
Hair crime #4
Using the wrong hair brush
One size doesn’t fit all. To detangle freshly washed hair, a wide-tooth comb is
your best friend. When it comes to blow drying, a big, round brush will give you
volume and curl, while a paddle brush will give you a smooth, sleek look.
Hair crime #5
Washing your hair
There’s a reason your hair feels so much healthier after you’ve been to the
salon… Stylists know the key to a swishy ‘do is shampooing only the roots and
conditioning just the ends. Your ends need more moisture to help prevent splits,
while your roots need less of it to maintain volume.
Hair crime #6
Not having regular trims
“But I’m trying to grow it out!” we hear you cry. In fact, having your hair cut
every 10-12 weeks (depending on the health of your locks) will encourage hair
growth by keeping split ends at bay.
