Don't tug at your hair - Women's Health & Fitness 

Tip 5: Don’t tug at your hair

Brushing your hair when it’s wet stretches the strands, making them highly susceptible to breakage. Also, ditch your plastic brush, which can be harsh on your sensitive scalp, and opt for a brush with 100 per cent natural boar bristles instead. We recommend Brushworx Natural Woodgrain Boar Bristle Cushion Brush, $19.95, The softer bristles won’t create split ends. Also, look for snag-free hair elastics such as Gliders Snag Free Hair Elastics, $4.45, to ensure your hair doesn’t get tugged at and stays crease-free. Avoid using too many bobby pins and clips, which also cause hair breakage, and never sleep with your hair tied into a ponytail or braid.
