1) Do not use a tight head band – Elastic bands that are used either for tying a pony tail or for pulling up the hair should fit comfortably. It should not be too tight else it will pull your hair off the scalp, tight elastic bands are known to cause scarring alopecia. The constant pulling and tying action leads to hair fall, so use a band that is firm and of good quality but not very tight. You should not sense the tightness of your band, it should be comfortable.
2) Do not comb or brush frequently – Excessive brushing and combing can damage the cuticles and make your hair rough. Frequent brushing is even worse for it creates tension in the hair due to multiple bristles.
3) Oil your hair – It is important to oil your hair at least once in a week, coconut oil is the best. It has emollient properties and nourishes the shaft during the nippy months. But do not oil your hair for the whole week, some people oil their hair once in a week and leave it on for the entire week. This is a very bad practice since oil attracts grime and dust which stick to the scalp. Whenever you oil your hair, wash it the next day.
