Daily Habits that Could Be Harming Your Hair (and How to Avoid Them)

We all know that our hair can say a lot about us – how we care for ourselves, our style, and even our mood. You've got your trusty hair care goodies lined up, but guess what? There are sneaky habits in our daily routine that might be putting a dent in those fabulous locks. We're diving into a bunch of those everyday habits that could be giving your hair a hard time. And of course, we'll dish out some pro tips on how to steer clear of the hair-harming zone. Plus, keep an eye out for a couple of awesome products that could give your hair the love it deserves!

1. Overwashing Your Hair:

While cleanliness is important, overwashing your hair can strip it of natural oils, leading to dryness and damage. Instead, aim to wash your hair every 2-3 days or as needed. L'ANZA's Healing ColorCare Shampoo, enriched with powerful antioxidants, preserves color and restores moisture without over-cleansing your hair.

2. Using Hot Water for Washing:

Hot water can weaken your hair's shaft and strip away essential oils. Opt for lukewarm water when washing your hair to prevent unnecessary damage. Pair this with L'ANZA Keratin Healing Oil Lustrous Conditioner, which adds strength and shine while maintaining the hair's natural moisture balance.

3. Aggressive Towel Drying:

Rubbing your hair vigorously with a towel can lead to frizz and breakage. Instead, gently pat your hair dry to minimize damage. Afterward, apply a small amount of Healing Style Dry Texture Spray for a touch of texture and hold without compromising hair health.

4. Tight Hairstyles:

Constantly wearing tight ponytails, braids, or buns can cause stress on your hair follicles and lead to breakage. Give your hair a breather by opting for looser hairstyles or using the Healing Volume Thickening Treatment Spray to add volume and body without compromising your hair's well-being.

5. Ignoring Heat Protectants:

Frequent use of heated styling tools can cause significant damage over time. Always use a heat protectant before styling, such as L'ANZA's Healing Style Thermal Defense Spray, which shields your hair from heat while also adding a touch of hold for your desired style.

6. Neglecting Regular Trims:

Avoiding regular haircuts can lead to split ends and an overall unkempt appearance. Schedule regular trims to keep your hair looking healthy and vibrant. Complement this with L'ANZA's Healing Strength Neem Plant Silk Serum to fortify and mend split ends between trims.
