Applying conditioner to the scalp will make your roots ever more oily. It’s your hair and the ends that need the most hydration. Putting conditioner on or near your scalp can clog your hair follicles, slowing hair growth and increasing oil production.

8. You’re brushing your hair when it’s wet.

There’s no damage-free way to brush wet hair because when hair is wet, it’s at its weakest state. Rubbing your hair dry with a towel can also damage your strands. The best way to safely dry your hair is to gently pat it and allow it to dry naturally.
