The 4 Everyday (Unexpected) Essentials That Are Damaging Your Hair

The 4 Everyday (Unexpected) Essentials That Are Damaging Your Hair|

Everyone is so quick to cut back on their heat styling or to skip their color appointments in hopes of saving their hair from breaking…

however, most of the damage on our tresses happens throughout the day without us even thinking twice about it! These 4 occurrences may seem small, but they pack a big, damaging punch over time.




If you aren’t using a silk or satin pillowcase yet, what are you even doing?! This is the quickest way to see improvements on your hair (and even your skin). You can toss and turn all you want with these babies, and you’ll wake up frizz and split-end free!

Purses and Backpacks


Ahhh, this will hit home for the medium-to-long haired babes! Is your hair shorter/ more broken on the side that you wear your purse? That’s because when you sling it over your shoulder and pull your hair through the strap, you are breaking it bit by bit. Think about how many times a day you must do this! (it’s probably a lot). Now that you are aware you will be more mindful and gentler when pulling your hair out from under your strap, I guarantee it!


Hair ties


I get it… there is nothing that is going to stop me from wearing my hair in my beloved messy bun. I don’t care how much damage it causes, I WON’T give up wearing my hair tied back. The good news is you don’t have to- but please ditch the old elastics because they are killing your hair. Instead, opt for a scrunchie or a wide elastic like the ones pictured below- all 3 are great options and will save you from breaking your hair mid-strand!

Babe, the bottom layer of your hair is BEGGING you for a break from the necklaces. The metal is slowly slicing away at those fragile pieces around your neck with every passing day. You don’t have to give up necklaces forever. Taking them off while you sleep and while you exercise will REALLY help cut back on the breakage of your bottom layer, and you’ll see those baby hairs grow back long in no time!
