You love your hair and there's no doubt about it. Hair not only enhances your overall personality but also plays a significant role in making you look presentable, in general. So, ultimately, it's your duty to take care of your hair. But, sometimes, you end up facing various unwanted issues like hair fall, among many others despite being so protective. Well, apart from the regular shampoo, serum, or other hair products, there may be some other mistakes that you might be making in regards to treating your hair. Dermatologist Dr. Jaishree Sharad shares some dos and don'ts for wet hair. In a detailed caption, she lists all the dos and don'ts that you need to follow and avoid respectively right after washing your hair.
Dr Jaishree Sharad shares different dos and don'ts for wet hair:
1. Don't wrap the towel too tight
Usually, you tend to wrap a towel tightly over your hair after washing it. However, that may damage your hair. Instead, wrap the towel loose and be a little gentle with your mane.
2. Avoid vigorous towel
Dr. Jaishree suggests avoiding vigorous towel drying. She reveals that traction can further cause friction and hair loss ultimately. So, it's always better to just pat your hair dry.
3. Use wide tooth hair detanglers
Don't use the regular comb or fine bristled comb to brush wet hair. Just after you wash your tresses, go for something like wide tooth detanglers to refrain from hair breakage.
4. Never tie wet hair
Do you tie your hair immediately after washing it? If you do, then, think about it. The doctor states that wet hair, when tied, is a harbour for fungi, bacteria, yeasts, and even lice. Hence, never tie your hair if they are damp.
5. Use hair serum
It's good if you use hair serum to protect your hair especially if you have to use a hair dryer to dry your hair. Try using warm or cold air from a distance instead of using hot air with temp above 150 degrees, Dr. Jaishree mentions.
6 Use an air dryer
Using an air dryer will keep your hair healthy.
