In this episode, our Senior Barber @barber.mo talks about some of the most common bad habits that people do that are damaging their hair.


1. Using Commercial Shampoo over Chemical-free Shampoo

You should always avoid using a shampoo that has both Sulfates and Parabens because they strip your hair of its natural oils, making it dry and brittle. Instead, use natural shampoos that are made with natural plant oils and herb extracts, most commonly that has coconut oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, and Also don’t forget to use Conditioner because the shampoo alone is not enough.

2. Doing your Blowdrying near to the scalp

Holding the dryer too close for too long can literally fry the hair and burn the scalp, potentially causing permanent damage to the hair follicles resulting in hair loss and bald patches.

Blowdrying your hair too close and Brushing your hair too tight.

Never blowdry too near your scalp and brush your hair too rough with the brush.

3. Sleeping with Hair Product on your Hair

Products can leave a thick residue on your scalp if it’s not properly washed off, this can clog the pores of your scalp and cause hair follicle reduction. That it means your hair start to grow thinner, weaker, more brittle hairs – which can give an appearance of hair loss.

4. Drying your hair forcefully with the towel

Using a towel is not generally bad but just rubbing your wet hair forcefully with a towel can lead to excessive hair breakage and hair fall. Its thick absorbent fibers when rubbed with the hair actually do more harm than good.

The hair can also become extremely frizzy as the towel ruffles up the cuticles of the hair. Moreover, the weight of the towel itself pulls down the hair, causing vulnerable strands to break.

5. Neglecting to moisturize your hair after swimming in the pool or beach.

Both the chlorine and saltwater dry out the hair and strip away its natural oil, making the hair drier and thin. That’s why it is very important to rinse your hair after your swim to wash out all the chlorine and bacteria that was soaked up by your strands to avoid further damage.
