Are you damaging your hair without knowing it!?!

Here's a list of the most common hair mistakes that are majorly messing with your manes!

Pony Tails

Are you constantly wearing your hair in the same pony tail position everyday?  Wearing super tight pony tails for any given length of time!?!  Well friends all that tension of an elastic creates tiny fractures weakening hair until it eventually breaks :(  So sad I know...but hey we all do it!  and depending on your hair type or quality of hair some are going to see major breakage!  Ever wonder why you have a ton of short breakage around your face?  Or is one side of your hair considerably longer than the other?  Does your hair feel like all its fullness is in the middle and you have no hair on your ends!! Well you can start thanking/ or cursing your pony tailing wearing days for that!!

Try switching up the position of your pony tails.  STOP wearing them so tight that you have a mini face lift.  and the biggest one yet is the TYPE of hair tie you are using!  This is HUGE people!!!!!  Your go to the gym pony tail, the throw my hair up when I get home pony tail...the pony tail you most frequently wear should be used with only a certain kind of hair tie.....No clear elastics! no metal clamp on the elastic holding it together!...it should be covered in fabric so its soft against your hair!!

Try these ones:

Over time swimming in a pool can wreck havoc on your hair...doesn't matter salt water or chlorine..both do damage to our tresses!  I am not saying don't swim or get your head wet...because that's just unacceptable especially with this wonderful 110 degree weather!  2 words ...Prevention and Maintenance should be your new hair swimming habit.

Wet your hair before jumping in the pool...I'm sure you have a hose in your back yard pretty darn close to that pool of yours!!  USE IT!  Hair that is already wet wont absorb as much of your pools water than dry hair...better yet spray in a leave in conditioner as well before jumping in!  Never let pool water sit in your hair for too long, take a shower after swimming!  Use a clarifying shampoo once a week to ensure all that yuck-i-ness is out of your hair from swimming.  Also invest in a good deep conditioner  any thing with coconut oil or argon oil is great for putting moisture back into your locks!

Long term consequences for not using thermal protection before blow drying, curling, flat iron...(any kind of heating tool) will cause breakage, loss of lustre, dryness, limp, "fried" looking hair.  Using heat on your hair with out protection will open up the hair shaft making it more susceptible to damage.


Heat protectants coat the follicle keeping your strands sealed and shield from your thermal styling.  They provide topical thermal protection while maintaining necessary moisture in the shaft, promoting healthy texture, softness, elasticity and shine.  Heat protectants can also enhance the effectiveness of the heating tool.

Try some of these:

Kenra Platinum Silkening Gloss

Kenra Hot Spray

satinwear 02 ultimate blow-dry lotion
Redkens Satinwear

hot sets 22 thermal setting mist
Redkens Hot Sets Spray


You get what you pay for.  Let me explain....  If you are using a cheap flat iron or curling iorn or blow dryer everyday....chances are over time your hair is going to be the result of that.  Dry brittle hay like hair....(sad face)


Invest in some good quality equipment.  This is your hair we are talking about people...it wont lie to you, the truth will be in the quality of your hair. Read on and get informed my friends......Ceramic is a hard, brittle substance made by baking earthenware or clay. When hair styling tools are made with ceramic, they usually consist of ceramic plating over metal. A few high-end tools are pure ceramic, but these are very fragile and very expensive. The more layers of ceramic coating used, the higher the tool's price.  
Ceramic tools create negative ions which counteract the positive ions found in frizzy hair. They heat more evenly and allow hair to pull smoothly through the tool to prevent snags.
Tourmaline is a semi-precious gemstone. A hair styling tool made with tourmaline is actually a ceramic tool with bits of finely-ground tourmaline infused into the ceramic. Tourmaline boosts the number of negative ions produced, which leads to healthier, shinier hair.  Since tourmaline is added to ceramic, a tourmaline product usually has the same benefits as ceramic, only more so. Ceramic products create negative ions, which protect hair from damage during use. Tourmaline products create more negative ions, leaving your hair shinier and healthier. Hair dryers with ceramic coils dry hair faster than plain metal coils. If tourmaline is added, the drying time is even shorter. Ceramic products distribute heat more evenly and regain heat loss faster. Tourmaline does this even better.
