The use of aggressive products
Dyes, hairspray, dry shampoo or shampoos containing silicone are one of the main causes of weakening and therefore loss of your hair. Opt for vegetable colorings and gentle products with a neutral PH.
Tobacco has a detrimental effect on hair growth and promotes hair loss by damaging the hair genome. For these reasons and thousands of others, the ideal is to stop.
The hair dryer, straighteners and any other heating device weaken the hair, making it brittle and therefore it falls out more easily. The ideal is natural drying and styling, if you persist in using electrical appliances, prefer steam appliances which are less harmful to the hair.
