Taking good care of hair is important, in order to keep it healthy and looking good. This means, it is important to use the right hair products too. In this arena, I have chosen many good products but have made bad choices too. Using bad hair products simply means having bad hair days more often than not. Making the choice of a good product is quite simple and based mainly on common sense. But sometimes, we all end up making the wrong decision. Hence, I have enumerated here some of the hair products which one should avoid as much as possible, in order to maintain the good hair growth and health.
Shampoos of cheap brands
When it comes to choosing products for the hair, it is always better to go for proper brands. This is especially true for shampoos. It may seem that the work of a shampoo is to clean the scalp, but the shampoo with the wrong ingredients can potentially harm the hair enough for you to need hair loss treatment after that. It can not only strip your hair of its natural colors, but also make it extremely breakage prone. This is why I have always invested in very good quality, moisture rich shampoos of good brands. This has helped me keep my hair health good.
Products having too much fragrance
Everyone likes to have hair products that smell very good. But, the fragrance should not be the primary ingredient in the product. The use to too much fragrance could be a devise of disguising the lack of proper ingredients in the product itself. Also, too much fragrance tends to affect the nerves too and make one feel too irritable or jittery. Hence, when choosing products, it is important to stay away from strongly fragrant products. A good product will put more attention on the other ingredients included than the fragrance. Here too, opting for a good brand helps as they have mild fragrances and good list of ingredients.
Rough hair brushes
You may be wondering why hair brushes should come under this category, but they form an important part of the hair care routine. Using a harsh hairbrush had made me lose a lot of hair due to breakage. Rough bristled or fine hair brushes tend to be harsh on the hair as they make the hair tangle more or even affect the scalp. Hence, never opt for buying cheap and hard hair brushes. It is always better to go for the better quality ones, even though they might be comparatively more expensive. Brushes with rounded bristles tend to massage the scalp and rejuvenate the blood circulation, which helps in hair growth.
Alcohol based styling gel
Using too much styling gel had made my hair rough and led to my booking for expensive hair loss treatment. The mistake was mainly choosing an alcohol based styling gel. The alcohol tends to dry up moisture a lot, thereby making the hair rough, dull and often brittle. So, it is advisable to stay up from such hair products.
