5 Habits That Are Making You Lose Your Hair

5 Habits That Are Making You Lose Your Hair
Posted April 1st, 2014 @ 5:00am



There's nothing worse than combing your hair in the shower and discovering massive clumps of hair falling out. That's what I've been going through since having the baby five months ago. I knew it was going to happen. It happens to all women after giving birth. However, I didn't realize I may be doing things to make it WORSE.

According to the Huffington Post, 5 HABITS THAT ARE MAKING YOU LOSE YOUR HAIR:


Habit #1: You're stressed out: If you experienced a traumatic event, like a divorce, your stress could be causing your hair loss.

Habit #2: Your ponytail is too tight: Over time, pulling your hair back can damage the hair follicles, a condition known as traction alopecia.

Habit #3: Too much blowdrying: Very high heat from blow dryers and the like can lead to breakage, making the hair more prone to falling out.
