The Worst Hairstyles that are Damaging your Hair

Many hairstyles can be damaging to your hair. For example, certain styles such as tight ponytails and high buns leave a lot of tension on the strands, while some short haircuts like pixies have very little protection from heat. Even if you aren’t sporting one of these styles, it is vital to maintain healthy habits to avoid damage and breakage.

Tips for least damaging hairstyle

Your hair is one of the most essential parts of your appearance, and it would be a shame to damage it. Not only are you damaging your hair, but you are also causing yourself more work in the long run. With all that being said, this blog post will discuss some of the worst hairstyles for hair.

  • Curling Iron: Curling irons can cause breakage from pulling at strands too tightly or burning them with heat.
  • Brush Blowout: Brushing out wet hair without using conditioner can lead to frizziness and tangles, which are challenging to manage when dry.
  • Crimping iron: Crimping irons create a tight curl that damages the cuticle layer on your strands.
  • Some tips include avoiding over-styling by not brushing or combing wet hair more than three times a day, avoiding product overload by only using products once a week (or twice for oilier types), and using protective styling when needed.
  • For those with especially dry or damaged locks, try applying oil before shampooing or conditioning.

What hairstyles should you avoid?

A woman’s hairstyle is often a reflection of her personality and style, so it’s essential to find the right one. But with so many different looks and styles to choose from, how do you know which ones are best for you? Knowing what not to wear can also be helpful, as some styles may not flatter your face shape or hair texture. With this in mind, here are hairstyles that women should avoid:


  • The pixie haircut if you have curly hair because it will make them look even curlier than they already are
  • Braids if you have fine hair because these tend to break easily and don’t hold up well over time
  • Bangs if you’re balding or thinning on top.
  • Lace front wigs and any other style that requires glue, pins, braids, or extensions. This can cause breakage in natural hair and lead to tangles.
  • Buns and ponytails are great if they’re loose enough not to pull on your scalp too much and don’t need bobby pins or ties. If you have long hair, it may be best to get an elastic band instead of a tie because it is less likely to cause breakage in natural hair.

It’s fun to experiment with your hair, but you should know that some hairstyles are hurting your locks. You’ll also find tips on how to avoid these damaging styles.
