1. Too Much Contact
I am very guilty of doing this. When I style my hair, I excessively scrunch my hair to compensate for my lack of texture. As I sit in front of the computer, deep in thought, I subconsciously play with hair. I twirl it and run my fingers through it, and I don’t realize the harm I'm doing.
Over scrunching your hair and touching your hair too much actually causes frizz and breakage. When your fingers touch your hair too much, they can actually steal away essential oils, leading to dry and easily broken hair strands.Solution: don’t scrunch too much — once you apply product to your hair, scrunch it in 1-3 times to enhance your hair texture and prevent frizz. When you are at home and tempted to play with your curls, put them up in a loose bun or cover them up with a satin scarf or cap. MORE: Hand in Hair Syndrome Doesn’t Just Cause Frizz
