Hair can be damaged by chemical exposure, prolonged or repeated heat exposure (as through the use of heat styling tools), and by perming and straightening. Oil is harmful for rough hair and for dry scalp as it decreases nourishment for hair leading to split and hair fall. When hair behaves in an unusual way, or a scalp skin disorder arises, it is often necessary to visit not only a qualified physician, but sometimes adermatologist, or a trichologist. Conditions that require this type of professional help include, but are not limited to, forms of alopecia, hair pulling/picking, hair that sticks straight out, black dots on the hair, and rashes or burns resulting from chemical processes. Gel provides a shiny look but dries the hair and makes it rough. ~Wiki
Are you a hair dye junkie or someone who consistently flat irons? You could be damaging your hair with these hair care practices. Both excessive use of hair treatments (i.e. bleaching, perms, relaxers) and products (i.e. blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons) can make hair brittle. Luckily, these types of hair damage are not permanent — change the bad-for-your-hair habit and your hair should restore itself! ~HuffPost

I’m proud to say I’m not wearing any hair extensions or hairpieces but have had my share in the Bad Hair Life days.
Growing up in the 1980’s Farrah Fawcett hair was on many girl’s wish list.
And in order for my straight baby hair to have that Charlie’s Angel look, I was told to get a perm. Well, not only did it frizz up my baby fine hair, but it caused numerous split ends which I couldn’t keep my hands from! I thought to remove my split ends, I would have to peel them off. I was wrong!
Eventually, as I got older, my hair got thicker and then the Jennifer Aniston look became popular and everyone with curly hair wanted straight hair—and I was lucky to be born with it. Society plays so much on how we want our hair to be, doesn’t it?
But, now poor Jennifer Aniston, according to this article from Harper’s Bazaar, “attributed her chin-length cut to damage incurred by a Brazilian (aka keratin) straightening treatment“.
