The 5 Biggest Hair Mistakes You’re Making

You probably want to know exactly how to keep your hair looking and feeling healthy. And don’t we all? Besides taking RioBabe Beauty Vitamins, there are a few habits you should include in your daily self-care routine in order to achieve your hair goals.

From straight to curly, every person’s hair is different and beautiful in its own way. You only need to know which hair type you have, so you can take proper care of it. The bad news is: You're probably making tons of mistakes with your locks without even realizing it. But worry not. We’re here to help you!

Here are the top 5 mistakes you're likely making with your hair:


  1. Washing too much or not enough

How often should you wash your hair? Well, the answer is different for everyone. If you have a greasy scalp, you probably need to wash your hair more often than those who have dry hair. However, it’s important to highlight this: excess cleaning usually removes the oily layer that protects and maintains our scalp’s health.



  1. Sleeping with wet hair 

Hair is at its weakest when wet, so it's not surprising to hear that you'll be increasing the amount of breakage by leaving your hair wet during your sleep. Besides, it won’t look good when you wake up and you’ll probably have to wash it again. So why take the chance? Tip: Wake up earlier and wash it if you need.



  1. Skipping heat or sun protection

Just like your skin, your hair is vulnerable to UV rays. If you’re spending long hours outside in the sun, your hair will “beg” for products with UV protection built-in. Tip: If you can, try to invest in a hair sunscreen.



  1. Wearing ponytails regularly 

If your hair usually flies high in a tight ponytail, be aware that your locks are in danger – and in some extreme cases, facing even permanent hair loss. High ponytails are the most common cause for hair breakage, especially if they’re pulled too tightly. Try to switch between ponytails and loose styles. Tip: Never tie your hair up when it’s wet!


  1. Smoking and/or drinking too much 

Nicotine, one of the toxins present in cigarettes, causes a reduction of blood flow. As a result, oxygen consumption is no longer adequate and nutrients are unable to arrive at the hair follicles. The absence of nutrients causes hair dehydration and opacity. The same situation happens when drinking too many alcoholic drinks. Tip: Moderation is the key to success!



Your hair needs a little bit of extra loving if you hope to keep it beautiful forever!
