If there is deficit in nutrition, hair and skin will be the first to get affected causing hair loss.  However, there are actions that also contribute to hair loss, if you can get rid of such actions, you will have healthy hair. The following are actions to avoid in order to promote healthy hair.

Avoid smoking

Nicotine present in the smoke causes vasoconstriction. This means that less blood supply reaches the skin and the hair. Smoking regularly can cause premature smoking and hair loss.

Avoid friction

Use silk pillow cases to avoid friction between hair while sleeping. Keep your hair covered in a scarf if it’s windy. Friction can aggravate hair loss by tangling your hair. This will lead to higher combing force causing hair loss.

Avoid heat styling tools

Even a temperature of more than 45 degree Celsius is harmful for hair. Be it hair styling tools like hair straightness, curlers, blow dryers or chemical treatment can weaken the hair causing hair loss.

Avoid hard water on the scalp

Hard water does not lather. Hard water contains salts of sodium and potassium that can damage hair. If you live in a geographic location with a hard water supply, install a water softener or use drinking water for your scalp.

Avoid tight ponytails

Many ladies have the habit of creating tight buns or tight ponytails. This is done regularly and can cause a condition known as traction alopecia. Traction alopecia is seen as recession of hairline with sparse hair and is often an irreversible condition.
