    Most women take their haircare very seriously. When you spend as much as women do at salons to get the perfect cut and color, why would you mistreat it? Unfortunately, women do plenty of damaging things to their locks every day without even realizing it.
    Stop being so reckless with your mane and tame these bad hair habits...

    Not using a heat protectant: Whenever you blow dry, flat iron or curl your hair you should be using a heat protecting product to prevent burning and breakage

    Over coloring: Don't want to look like a scarecrow? Then give your hair a break. Over-processing your hair will dry it out and make it look like straw.

    Washing your hair every day: If you have greasy hair, wash away – but if you have normal or dry hair, a daily wash is stripping away the oils that keep your mane healthy and shiny. If you can wait a day or two do it! It will save your hair a day of heat styling too.

    Using rubber bands as hair ties: Never, ever do this! Trying to get a rubber band out of your hair is so painful and you break so many hairs in the process. If you are going to sleep with your hair up, stick with a scrunchy rather than an elastic to prevent tearing and breaking your hair
