Every woman dreams to have long, thick and beautiful hair, but to attain it in real is not an easy task. This is because, most of the ladies have damaged hair which makes it thin and weak, and the dream of acquiring long, shiny hair goes in vain. However, you can still achieve this by avoiding several habits that lead to thinning of hair.
So, here is a list of some common habits that you should avoid to make your hair thick and healthy:
1. Too Much Oiling

Hot oil massage is a great option to avoid pores over the scalp, but keeping your hair oiled 24×7 is not a great idea as our body produces sufficient amount of natural oils for hair. So, always keep in mind that you need oiling just for your hair tips and not the scalp. Even if you are going for a hair massage then rinse it off within an hour.
2. Bleaching and Colouring
Getting hair coloured is not bad, but bleaching them is never a good option. Make sure that you always get your hair coloured by an expert. Moreover, avoid undergoing hair treatments multiple times, as these may make your hair dull and dry. And you can even opt for heena as it is the best option for naturally colouring your hair.
3. Combing Wet Hair

Most people comb their hair when they are wet, because they think that it will make their hair straight. Although this fact is true to some extent, there is one major disadvantage of combing wet hair. When you come out of shower your hair is very tender at that time and when you comb your wet hair, there are chances that you might lose a large bunch of hair. Thus, it is better that you comb your hair once it is dries off.
4. Unhealthy Eating

The diet intake has a direct effect on your hair. For example, if you drink too much of alcohol or products with high levels of caffeine, the ill effects of the same gradually start to reflect through your hair. On the other hand, if you take a healthy diet, then your body will get sufficient amount of protein and minerals needed to maintain the good health of your hair.
5. Brushing too Hard
Your hair is very gentle, so don’t be too harsh on it and stop brushing it vigorously as this produces static electricity, which makes your hair weak. So, always be gentle while brushing your hair.
6. Leaving Hair Dirty

Women usually follow the thrice-in-a-week routine to wash their hair. However, this is not the right practice. You should wash your hair as soon as you feel the oil in your scalp, because clean scalp boosts hair growth. So, you can opt for a hair wash anytime using a mild shampoo.
7. Tying Hair Too Much

If you keep your hair tied most of the times, then it can affect your hair follicles. Hair roots also need to breathe! So, keeping your hair loose for some time is a good thing.
8. Blow Dry
Drying hair with a hairdryer in an emergency or in the hour of need is fine, but should not be a regular practice as it may damage your hair and can make your hair dry naturally.
