10. Brushing Your Hair Wrong
You know that hundred strokes that your grandmother swore by? It’s a sure-fire means of promoting hair breakage and split ends. That much brushing is too harsh for all but the very oiliest hair. If your hair is oily, it needs a shampoo rather than brushing. Brushing your hair from roots to tips pulls it out by the follicles, promoting more hair loss than is necessary. Instead, brush your hair in small sections from the bottom up to remove tangles and give your hair an overall polished look.
