Your bathroom shelf might be loaded with all kinds of high-end products. But are you using them a little too often? Read on to find out...

There are a lot of us who rush to the store the moment a hair care product has been launched and given the stamp of approval by a trusted friend. So now you have got an envious collection of products but your shopping indulgences are in vain if your hair does not benefit by them in any way whatsoever. Ok so they might be the best products that are there in the market but work wonders on everyone except you? Time for some introspection.

Shampooing

So your guy loves the way your hair smells after you have shampooed them, but that's a lousy excuse to shampoo them everyday. This is the reason for your dry, limp, thinning hair. Another common mistake is if you do not use a clarifying shampoo at least once a week. If you use styling products every other day, the chances of the residue build-up on your scalp are very high. You need to use a clarifying shampoo to get rid of all this product build-up and pollutants from your scalp.

Conditioning

It is not surprising if you still have dull, lifeless hair despite using rich conditioners, hair masques, etc. Go a little too liberal with the conditioner and you will only end up weighing down your hair. Ideally, you must not use more than two teaspoons of conditioner for your hair unless you have really long tresses. Apart from applying too much you might also not be distributing the conditioner evenly. Applying conditioner from root to tip is wrong. You will clog the roots of your hair and your scalp might break out in itchy, oily bumps.

Hair spray

Hair spray contains alcohol and polymers. While certain types of alcohol in hair products can be beneficial for the hair, avoid hair sprays that have ethanol as it can be very damaging. Excessive use of hair sprays can rob the shine off your hair. Besides, using it more than once or twice a week can lead to clogging of the roots and build-up on the scalp. You might also have dandruff-like particles flaking off from hair. Be careful not to spray hair sprays near an open flame and hold the bottle 10 inches away from hair while spraying.

Hair gel:

Hair that has been gelled too much or too often lacks lustre and looks fragile. Hair gel works only on the surface and stays away from the follicles which holds the hair in place, so you don't run the risk of balding. But excessive usage of hair gels can make your hair look dull and matted.
