If you have not bought the April issue of CLEO (Singapore), I suggest you go grab a copy now. It is definitely worth more than S$4.40. This issue is jam packed with cool beauty tips! Otherwise, stay tune to my blog, I will push out the great beauty tips over the next days.
For today, I am going to talk about breaking bad habits that you are doing to your tresses. I received death penalty for all cases – red alert mode for me again.
Bad habit #1: Pulling all your hair back from the front to tie a tight ponytail.
I can attest that a tight ponytail gives us a really nice and neat look – the stark look that I like very much. However, it causes our hairline to recede, making our forehead look a lot higher.
Break habit #1: Tie your hair loosely to the side (CLEO says it is more chic than a ponytail!)
Bad habit #2: Constantly tying up your hair at one place.
Well, I can be quite boring, so I would stick to the style that works best. However, constantly tying hair at one place would stress the protective layer of our hair, causing hair strands to be more brittle and snap at mid-length.
Break habit #2: Alternate between high and low ponytail (a loose one!)
Bad habit #3: Wearing sunglasses on the top of your head
I love doing that – I think I look quite cool with that huge shades on my head. However, strands tend to tangle on the hinges or nosepiece and causing the hair to be more liable to breakage. With this said, I recall that I have bad experiences trying to remove my tangled hair from the hinges. So, coolness or painless?
Break habit #3: Keep your shades under the shade – your bag.
Bad habit #4: Twirling hair with your fingers
Constantly twirling hair in the smae place leaves semi-permanent kinks, especially if you do it to wet hair. I always do this! Oh no.
Break habit #4: Keep your fingers busy with other things (CLEO: try doodling)
Habits are hard to break. A definite tough job for me as I have four habits to work on.
