Rubbing it Dry with a Towel
While there's nothing inherently wrong with drying your hair, the team at Salon Invi says that vigorously rubbing at your strands with a towel is one of the worst things you can do. Your hair is brittle and easily damaged when it's wet, so don't take the chance. Instead, you can buy a towel specifically designed for drying your wet hair, or you can save your money and wrap it up in a soft, worn-out t-shirt, instead. The latter is a great way to absorb extra moisture without causing damage to the cuticle of your hair.
Using Heat Tools Every Single Day
Heat and your hair? They're enemies according to Essence, and the Salon Invi experts agree. Though there's nothing quite as satisfying as a sleek straight 'do (that you have to achieve with a flat iron, of course), it's important that you don't go for this same style every single day. Why? Heat damages hair, and the products out there that claim to "protect" it can only do so much. Air dry your hair whenever possible and use that curling or straightening iron sparingly. Your split ends (or lack thereof) will thank you.
Washing it Too Much
We live in a society that basically forces us to scrub ourselves with different cleansing products every single day. If we don't, we feel dirty, and our self-esteem takes a hit. According to Salon Invi's stylists, daily shampooing is not only not necessary, but it's actually bad for your hair. Shampoos strip the natural oils from your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless, and many of today's products leave residues behind that defeat the purpose of "clean" in the first place. Wash your hair three times a week (or every other day at most) and invest in a good dry shampoo if your hair gets oily between shampoos.
