1. You sleep in the same position.
When you are used to sleeping on one side, especially when you're using a cotton pillowcase, your hair is susceptible to friction—on one side always! To avoid this snoozing mistake, train your body to sleep on the other side every other night. Investing in a friction-free satin pillowcase helps a lot, too!
2. You like wearing tight ponytails.
Sure, Ariana Grande's high ponytail looks amazing, but tying your tresses in a tight ponytail can cause it to stretch and get permanent hair bends. While soft, ribbon elastics will lessen the stress on your locks, it's best to let your hair loose every now and then.
3. You wear your purse straps.
Sounds uncanny, but it does affect your hair. You may not notice it, but your bag straps snag your hair and break them! Be careful when you move your straps—lift your hair away from the straps to prevent damage and breakage.
4. You like putting on exposed zipped-back tops and dresses.
Yes, they look edgy and cool, but the zipper's teeth catch strands of your hair and break them. When you find yourself wearing an exposed zip top, make sure your hair is in an updo to avoid any contact with the zipper.
5. You prefer using headphones.
While your headphones grant your ears amazing sound quality, the friction it causes can sometimes tear your follicles.
