Mariela Taratuta, professional stylist and founder of Look Hair & Spa leaves us some advice for hair health care. “We all like to have healthy, strong and shiny hair, but sometimes without knowing it, we make mistakes in the daily care of our hair that can damage it. Below, she explains the most common mistakes that you should avoid to maintain healthy and beautiful hair.
Excessive washing: Washing the hair too frequently can strip the natural and essential oils that the hair needs to stay healthy. It is important to wash your hair with the appropriate frequency depending on your hair type and physical activity.
Using very hot water: although hot water is relaxing, it can be damaging to your hair. Hot water can damage the hair structure and make it more prone to breakage and dryness.
Not protecting hair from the sun: Excessive exposure to the sun can damage hair, especially colored hair. It is important to protect hair from the sun by wearing hats or using SPF hair products.
Brushing hair too hard: Wet hair is more vulnerable to breakage and damage. It is important to gently comb and brush damp hair to prevent breakage and knotting.
Using heat tools without protection: Frequent use of heat tools such as irons and blow dryers can damage hair. It is important to use a heat protectant to prevent heat damage and, if it is possible, not to use the thermal tools daily.
Not moisturizing hair: Hair needs hydration to stay healthy. It is important to use conditioners and hair treatments such as hair detox and hair botox to keep hair hydrated and strong.
Using poor quality products: Using poor quality products can damage your hair and make it look dull and lifeless. It is important to use quality hair care products and avoid using products with harsh chemicals. Per example, use sulfate-free, paraben- free and organic products instead.
