We use our hands a lot when it comes to our hair, for applying products, washing, finger detangling, parting and styling. But the condition of our hands can have an impact on your hairs condition. You wouldn't recommend using a damaged broken comb to do your hair because it can rip out your hair, but if you look down at your hands, they could be doing the same thing. Biting your nails and wearing rings can be so damaging to your hair. Doing your hair with chipped or jagged nails can cause breakage and snag your hair even wearing jewellery can catch on to your hair and cause it to snap or pull out. If your goal is to grow your hair and maximise length retention, it might be time to pull out the nail clippers. Ensure that your fingernails are well kept and you remove jewellery such as rings and bracelets when touching your hair. This is definitely a hair habit to stop.
