First of all, wet hair can be combed – but only the right method and tools will help reduce brittleness. There are hydrogen bonds in the hair structure that break temporarily when the hair is wet, making the hair more brittle and susceptible to damage when wet. Activities such as harsh combing or towel-drying your hair can cause serious stress on your hair. Wet hair should be combed very carefully with a wide-toothed comb or paddle brush after applying a leave-in spray or finishing oil.

Avoid tying wet hair into a ponytail or bun

Sometimes after shampooing or swimming, it can be tempting to just put your hair in a ponytail, but that’s a big mistake. When you tie your hair back, it stretches up to a third of its length, causing it to break. So make sure your hair is completely dry before you pin it up.

Never go to bed with wet hair

As mentioned above, stretching wet hair isn’t good for it, and lying on wet hair can cause this.
