It will begin to look damaged if it’s exposed to too much sun or pollution. You can trust your hair. It will indicate if something is off.

Fact 5: Your hair is most vulnerable when it is wet.

If you wrap a towel around your hair or rub it vigorously after washing, you may be damaging it. Brushing it too harshly while it is still wet can also cause breakage and damage. Instead of rubbing your hair with a towel, use the towel to gently squeeze the excess water out. Blot your hair with the towel, but don’t rub.
