Women want their hair to be perfect. They’ll do anything and everything they can to make their hair look and feel great. But some things you do to enhance the beauty of your hair are actually very harmful.
Here are some things that are horrible for your hair:
1. Not eating breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day for a reason. It supplies your body with all the vitamins and minerals it needs to do well throughout the day. Skipping breakfast can be bad for your hair because it causes shedding and slows hair growth. They say you should eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper – make that your motto. Have a good, healthy breakfast and try and include foods like almonds, strawberries, eggs and cinnamon because they are the boost of energy your hair needs.

2. Sleeping with wet hair
As you know, your hair is weak when it is wet, sleeping on wet hair can pull and strain hair causing breakages and frizz. Wait for your hair to dry before getting to bed or shower an adequate time before sleeping. This way you can go to bed clean and still have healthy hair when you wake up!
Though hot showers always feel great, they actually damage your hair and scalp quite a bit. The hot water washes away your hairs natural oils which can cause dandruff and cause your scalp to become dry and itchy. You should instead take normal temperature showers.

4. Tying your hair extremely tight
Wearing your hair tight all day can put an unnecessary strain on your roots. This can cause your hair to break and damage it. If you’re tired of having your hair in your face and want to still tie it you can wear a hair band instead. It’ll serve the same purpose and won’t damage your hair as much as tying it tightly will.
5. Lack of sleep
Sleep is not only essential for your body but also for your hair too. Not enough sleep and your body won’t be able to use the nutrients and minerals to keep your hair healthy and strong. An average person needs to sleep six to eight hours every night to recharge their body. Your hair also needs the same amount of time to recharge. Be sure to get enough sleep to keep your hair beautiful.
This may surprise you but smoking is not only bad for you health but it’s also bad for your hair. Smoking is a major cause of dull and brittle hair. It also speeds up the process of greying hair. You can either stop smoking or use coconut oil on your hair as it helps stimulate the scalp increasing the blood flows to it, encouraging hair growth
7. Brushing wet hair
Hair is more likely to get damaged when wet, so brushing your hair when it’s wet will cause it to break more easily. So either wait for your hair to dry up before brushing it or if you can’t wait and want to make your hair immediately use a thick comb when your hair is wet as it prevents breakages.

Straighteners can damage your hair differently than blow dryers. Straightening your hair causes cracking along the edges of the cuticles, this can lead to chipping.

To prevent this use your straightener at a lower setting, or massage your hair with olive oil as it’ll protect your hair from the damage done by straighteners
9. Not getting your hair trimmed often enough

If you’re growing it out then eight to twelve weeks is ideal.
