Common Hair Care Mistakes You’re Making!

To achieve your desired hair goals, it's crucial to grasp and steer clear of common hair care blunders. Many unknowingly fall victim to these mistakes by trying unsuitable hair products promoted on social media or experimenting with multiple techniques simultaneously. As a result, they find themselves perplexed by the lack of desired results.

From using harsh chemical-laden products to neglecting proper scalp care, these missteps can hinder your hair's potential. Our objective is to enlighten and empower you with knowledge about these mistakes, offering natural, vegan solutions that nurture your hair from root to tip. It's time we understand what these misconceptions are and embrace a healthier hair care routine with Shedavi. Let us guide you on your journey to full, healthy hair!


Mistake #1... Using the Wrong Products for Your Hair Type

Hair types can generally be categorized into four main types. Essentially, type 1 hair is is straight, type 2 hair is wavy, type 3 hair is curly, and type 4 hair is curly coily. If you aren't sure of your hair type, don’t worry. We’ve gathered all the necessary info to help you determine your hair type, porosity, and how to effectively maintain it. 

We understand that every individual has unique texture and curl patterns. Using the correct products for you hair type is essential to unlocking it's natural beauty. Using the wrong products can weigh down your hair if you have fine hair or a looser texture, and on the other hand you may find that products don't have enough curl enhancing or hold if you have a tighter texture. Whether your hair is coily, curly, or straight, our carefully formulated products provide the nourishment and support your crown crave.

Mistake #2... Over-washing or Under-washing Your Hair

Finding the delicate balance between over-washing and under-washing hair can be tough. It's crucial to understand the impact of these extremes on your hair quality and overall health.

Over-washing, especially with sulfate-laden shampoos, can strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness, frizz, and breakage. On the other hand, under-washing can result in product buildup, clogged follicles, and an unhealthy scalp environment.

Try our Moisturizing Shampoo and Moisturizing Conditioner. Formulated without sulfates, these products gently cleanse and nourish your hair, infusing it with vital moisture and promoting a healthy scalp. To further enhance your wash day routine, we recommend incorporating our Protein Masque. This deep-conditioning treatment restores strength, repairs damage, and provides a much-needed boost of hydration.


Mistake #3... Using Harmful Chemicals

In a world filled with chemicals and harmful additives, it's time to give your hair the love it deserves by going natural. Choosing natural ingredients for your hair care routine brings a host of benefits. First and foremost, you eliminate exposure to harsh chemicals that can strip away moisture, disrupt your scalp's natural balance, and lead to long-term damage and hair breakage. Instead, opt-into vegan and sulfate-free products that harness the power of botanical extracts, plant-based oils, and other nature-derived ingredients, providing a gentle and effective solution for your hair's needs.

Mistake #4... Using Heat Styling Tools & Harmful Products Excessively

It's easy to fall into the trap of excessive heat styling and using harmful products when there’s always a new style to try. Excessive use of heat styling tools like flat irons and curling wands can lead to weakened strands, breakage, and loss of natural moisture.

Mistake #5... Not Trimming Hair Regularly

Regularly trimming your hair may seem contradictory to achieving long, luscious locks, but it is an essential step in preserving the health of your hair. Trimming removes split ends, preventing them from traveling up the hair shaft and causing further damage. It promotes healthier hair growth by creating a strong foundation.

Mistake #7... Other Little Details

Little strides in your daily life can have a huge impact on your hair health. Be sure to protect your hair at night with a satin scarf or bonnet to prevent tangles and frizz. Drink plenty of water daily and reap the benefits of beautiful, healthy hair! Also remember, a good diet results in healthier hair and a healthier you. 


Ultimately, the most effective approach to promote growth, enhance shine, achieve fullness, and maintain optimal hair and scalp health is to implement practices that specifically cater to your hair type and porosity. Ensure that you establish a solid hair care routine that avoids common mistakes that can hinder your progress on your hair journey. If you need help for building your routine & staying motivated with "results you can see", our Grow & Track Bundle is perfect for you!
