How Over-styling Your Hair can cause Hair Loss?

8 August, 2019 | Hair Loss | Author : Shveta Virmani
Styling of hair can do wonders for your self-esteem and produce a positive effect on your confidence. However, over-styling your hair can land you in an unfortunate situation of hair loss.

Though hair loss is largely caused by genetics and hormonal imbalance, it is important to remember that excessive use of styling tools such as hair dyes, hair tongs, blow dryers, straighteners, heated curlers, hair extensions, etc. can also damage your hair follicles, resulting in dry, frizzy, lifeless, and weakened hair that will eventually fall out. 

Once your hair is damaged, it cannot heal itself and requires external assistance. Fortunately, below are some hair tips from the top hair transplant surgeons that can help you to prevent the damage caused by over-styling of hair:

1. Choose the Right Hairstyle

Hairstyles such as tight ponytails, cornrows, or top-knots can cause breakage by putting tension on your hair shafts, resulting in traction alopecia. Therefore, it is advised by experts to choose the right hairstyle that best suits your hair. Try to avoid hair extensions or get it done only at specialized saloons. Moreover, skip hair styling products such as hair sprays or gels which provide long-lasting hold. These products often contain alcohol that can damage your hair.

2. Follow the Right Hair Drying Method

Air drying your hair is the best method to dry your hair. You can also wrap your hair in a towel after shampooing. According to experts, you should minimize the usage of hair dryers and other heating devices as these tools can rob the moisture of your hair, making it dull and weak. Always use blow dryers or curling iron at low or medium setting. Besides, avoid styling your wet hair as it is more prone to breakage.

3. Gently Wash and Brush your Hair

Over washing or brushing your hair aggressively can strip off the cuticle i.e. the tough outer layer of your hair, resulting in breakage. Therefore, brush your hair minimally as too much of it can cause split ends or broken hair shafts. In order to detangle or style your hair, use a wide-tooth comb or bristle brush. Moreover, use hair products that contain vitamin E. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that allows proper circulation of oxygen to the hair follicles, thereby improving the growth of the hair. 

According to the best hair transplant surgeons in India, eating the right diet along with effective preventive measures is all you need to strengthen your hair. Moreover, you can always approach the best hair transplant clinic to get rid of all your hair loss worries.
