Damaging hairdos aren't always easy to spot, tight ponytails to twisted french braid and many other hairstyles could affect your hair's overall health. Even giving more than necessary heat to your hair for styling can weaken your locks.
Down here we have ten hairstyles that are responsible for that hair damage.
You might think that a ponytail is an easy solution to a bad hair day, but you're absolutely wrong. You are just making it worse by calling it. Continuous use of tight elastic hair ties can damage your hair's root and leads to hair breaks. If you're the one who can't live without this hairstyle, then don't worry you can simply switch to fabric hair ties.

There is no doubt this hairstyle suits on any hair, but you are actually stretching your hair with this hairstyle. Overusing of this hairdo, it wrenches the roots which can thin your hair and can lead to follicle damage, split- ends.
Whenever we're getting late for the office or college, we quickly make a bun or ponytail in wet hair without letting them dry. Agree? But you don't know how much you're damaging your hair at that time. When you wet the hair, they become fragile, by making a ponytail or a bun make them more weak and break your hair.

Braids near the hair line look incredibly cute and sexy, but they too are harmful to your strands. As a result, they can cause hair breakage and can lead to thinning your hair.
Hairspray is definitely best for hairstyling; it take less time to complete any hairstyle and keep the hairdos stay for long. But do know, your hairspray contains a lot of harmful chemicals in it; which are not so hair friendly. They do damage your hair in huge quantity.
