Are you committing major Hair errors?
Here are the top hair sins women make according to celebrity hairstylist Vasken Demirjian, whose salon has been named as one of the country's top three by Salon Today Magazine.
Waiting too long in between haircuts is one beauty sin women habitually commit.
"Get a haircut every six to eight weeks.
Combing Hair While Wet
Did you know that when your hair is wet, it's more susceptible to damage? Turns out, combing your hair while it's wet and tangled can result in hair breakage. Pro stylist say - Always use a detangling spray or softening agent before combing wet hair,
Putting Ponytail in Same Spot
Your hair is susceptible to breaking when you place your ponytail in the same spot every day, explains Demirjian.
"A tight pony tail will have residual damage on the hairline, from the pull and tightness, as well as on the area where the ponytail is held by the band," he explains. "Depending on the type of bands you use, you can even have loss of elasticity."
Rubbing Hair in Towel
It's OK to wrap your hair in a towel post shower, but rubbing your hair in your towel is a beauty mistake that'll leave your hair frizzy, and less healthy. The best post-shower protocol is to wring out excess water from hair with your hands and then to wrap it in a towel for 5 to 10 minutes.. Never, under any circumstances, rub. (Unless you want to sport a frizzy mane for the rest of the day.)
