Too frequent shampooing is also not good for the health of the hair because it can lower the production of natural oils in the hair. Eventually the hair will become dry and fall out more easily. Therefore, simply wash 1 time a day only, no need to wash every bathroom you.
2. Comb from top to bottom
These habits may be the thing that you do most often. It may seem trivial, but comb the hair from top to bottom will thus increasingly aggravating you natural hair loss and damage, especially when the hair is matted.
We recommend combing the lower hair first so it doesn’t tangle again, and then comb it from above. Also, avoid combing your hair when your hair is still wet. Dry it first by aerating it.
3. Often use hair styling tools
If you often use a hair dryer, curling and curling hair, it’s only natural that your hair always falls out. This is because the heat produced by the hairdressing tools can damage the protein in the hair so that the hair cuticle becomes unprotected. This cuticle damage will ultimately reduce moisture on the scalp and hair, which then makes hair more prone to loss.
We recommend that you reduce the use of hair styling tools that generate heat. Just use 2 or 3 times a week, and try with the lowest temperature. Don’t forget to always apply the hair vitamins to protect the hair from dryness due to hot temperatures.
4. Wrong hair drying time
While in a State of wet, hair cuticles will enlarge so more enlarge the possibility of broken hair and loss. Therefore, be careful when drying and combing of the hair. We recommend that you avoid drying your hair with the way rubbed too toned using towels.
Doing so will cause friction on your hair and towel that could damage the cuticle of the hair. Quite dry hair with patting hair gently, and then wrap it up using a towel.
5. Bind the hair too tight
Ponytail tightly will exert excessive pressure on the hair follicles, which is certainly not good for the health of hair follicles. Even excessive pressure on the follicle can cause injuries that can cause permanent damage and make the hair not grow again.
Therefore, we recommend that you avoid tying the hair too often and toned, especially while sleeping. Tie the hair when the hair is still wet in a State is also not recommended, as it will trigger the growth of a fungus that can cause infection of the scalp.
6. Scratching head
The itching that appear on the scalp sometimes make our hands can’t wait to scratch it. But that is precisely the habits could be the cause of hair loss. Scratching head will cause damage to the cuticle which ultimately will also trigger the onset of hair loss and damage.
If the scalp feels itchy, it’s better to look for the cause of the itching so you can handle it in the right way. If the itching is caused by dandruff, shampoo with shampoo, zinc, selenium, tea tree oil and other ingredients that can eliminate the fungus that causes dandruff.
7. Bathroom with hot water

Destruction of the roots of the hair will make your hair becomes dry and brittle, so that hair so more easily broken and loss.
Therefore, try not to bathe too often and shampoo by using hot water. If you have to take a shower with hot water, just pour hot water on the body, while for the head, use plain water.
8. The wrong Diet
The wrong diet patterns will make the body of essential nutrients-nutritional deficiencies, including protein. Due to the lack of the protein, the body will take a protein found in the hair, which ultimately will make the hair becomes thin increasingly and loss.
Although currently in a diet program, we recommend that you keep counting and meets nutritional intake you need every day. Foods rich in protein such as fish and nuts, will keep the hair you still thick and inevitable loss of the problem.
In addition to interfere with the health of the body such as the heart and lungs, smoking habit can also lead to hair loss and damage. This is because smoking will cause circulation in the blood vessels become not smoothly so that the production of blood to the hair follicle becomes obstructed.
Mental health also affects the health of the hair. Usually the hair will start falling out and thinning as you experience the pressure and stress. This situation occurs even more severe in men.
When men experience stress, the production of hormones will increase especially the hormone testosterone and dehydrotestosterone. Both of these hormones will seep into the hair shaft and cause thinning. In the end the hair becomes damaged and falls out, it can even cause permanent baldness.
