Many modern hair care products have made it easy to take care of our hair. Especially for women with busy work schedules, certain products like dry shampoo have become necessary. Daily styling can be made more efficient and convenient using hair sprays and many other similar products. But most hair care professionals advise against the prolonged usage of these products and tools, as it may leave your hair looking dull and dry. Here are a few products that shouldn’t be used regularly to avoid various common hair issues.

1. Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo has come across as a miraculous invention for women who don’t like to shampoo their hair daily. It can soak up the excess oil from the root of the hair and help it stay free of grease. However, it should only be used in moderation because of certain side effects. The debris and build-up of dry shampoo can irritate your scalp and induce itching. With regular usage, you may experience hair fall as well. Dry shampoo can also be difficult to wash off hair extensions and damage their shine.

2. Protective Heat Sprays

Most women apply a layer of protective serums and sprays to their hair before using heating tools. Although these products are designed to protect your hair from damage, they may become the reason for various hair problems themselves. If you apply a heat-protective product on your hair and use a heating tool when it’s still wet, it may fry and kill your hair follicles. Make a habit of brushing and drying your hair and hair extensions after applying such products to reduce any such damage.

3. Hair Ties

Hair elastics and ties pull on your hair’s roots and can cause hair fall after daily usage. Do your hair a favor and replace these with a soft scrunchie that is easy to manage with every type of hair.

4. Hairspray

Hairsprays can damage your hair in two different ways. Firstly, by hardening your hair and drying it up. Secondly, by depositing flakes and debris onto your scalp that may not get washed away with regular shampoos.
