Did You Know? These 6 Habits Are Actually Making Your Hair Thinner

Wondering what’s actually making those hair strands fall in number every day? Your daily habits might be ruining your scalp and hair health, causing excessive hair fall. This also leads to a loss of volume or hair thinning that makes your tresses lackluster and changes its texture.

What Causes Hair Thinning?

While fine hair can be a genetic predisposition, it is more often than not a result of poor hair health. If you find yourself often scratching your scalp or running your fingers through the strands, you might be doing something wrong in your hair care routine.

Godrej Professional experts reveal 6 daily habits that can be plausible reasons for thinning hair and how you can prevent them.

Washing Hair with Hot Water

Don’t you love showering in lukewarm water when the weather is pleasant? While lukewarm or hot water might be relaxing, it can very well damage your hair by dehydrating the strands. This means your hair will be left without any moisture leading to a dry scalp and open pores. 

This is one of the most prominent hair thinning causes that should be avoided. You should always wash your hair with cold water for best results.

Not Washing Hair Frequently

Don’t delay washing your hair beyond 3 days as it can cause dirt and oil buildup on your scalp. Use the Godrej Professional Keracare Repair Combo consisting of the Keracare Repair Shampoo and the Keracare Repair Mask, for best results.

Usage Recommendation:

  • Wet hair thoroughly and pump out the Keracare Repair Shampoo onto your palms.
  • Apply it evenly on your scalp working the lather from the roots to the lengths of hair.
  • Rinse well with cold water.
  • Take a generous amount of the Keracare Repair Mask and distribute it evenly on the hair.
  • Massage gently with your fingertips and leave it on for at least 5 minutes before rinsing it off.

This duo is enriched with grapeseed oil that contains Vitamin E to gently cleanse and nourish hair. It helps to improve the overall health of hair. It also consists of wheat protein that repairs hair damage, and naturally controls frizz. 

P.S.: This is a great combination for chemically treated hair and can be used every 2-3 days for best results.

Tying Hair Regularly

Tying your hair up in a ponytail or bun is an easy way to maintain your locks. However, doing so for prolonged periods of time can make the hair strands lose elasticity. Hairline receding can be caused by constantly tying your hair as it pulls towards your strands, making them thinner.

Brushing or Combing Wet Locks

Never brush or comb hair unless it's dry. When your hair is wet after a good shampoo and conditioner wash, it is at its weakest state and is prone to breakage. By brushing wet hair, you can be tugging at it which can lead to hair thinning.

Sun Exposure

The cuticles, or the outside cover of your hair, can be exposed to the sun when you’re stepping out. This means that UVA and UVB rays can damage the strands if hair is overexposed to the sun. They can make hair dry, frizzy and brittle.

Excessive falling of hair due to sun exposure should be prevented at all costs. You can use the Godrej Professional De Frizz Smooth Leave-In Cream to protect your hair.

Usage Recommendation:

  • Take a small quantity of the serum into your palms.
  • Apply evenly over the hair, focusing on the mid-lengths and ends.
  • Do not apply on the scalp.

This leave-in cream is enriched with UV-protect ingredients to safeguard the hair strands from external pollution. Additionally, it also tames frizzy hair by detangling it and making it shiny. You can also keep your hair bundled underneath a hat or a scarf for maximum protection. 

Change your habits today to transform your hair game. It won’t be long before you start noticing the difference in your hair texture once your scalp and hair receive the correct form of hair care.
