Damp hair surely affects the strength and health of the hair and scalp. We usually dry our hair using a towel after taking a shower. However, the ways in which we dry our hair may severely affect the healthy growth of the hair.
Drying it pretty roughly would actually do more harm than good. It also increases the chance of hair breakage and hair fall as well. Drying the head and hair using a towel made with soft fabric is the most appropriate way to do it.
Many think that massaging the head would stimulate the blood flow and result in hair growth. People with healthy hair may feel relaxed if their heads are massaged lightly. However, doing head massages if you are already suffering from hair loss may further worsen it.
Weak strands of hair may easily break if hands are run through it frequently. Even those who think that they take good care of their hair may fail to choose the right kind of combs which suit the texture of their hair.
Low quality and cheap hair brushes with sharp edges may cause irritations on the scalp and increase hair fall. Hair brushes with soft and wide tooth should always be chosen as they cause less breakage and is easy on the scalp.
