A HAIRDRESSER has revealed the list of things she would never do to her locks – and tying your hair up while it’s dripping wet is bad news.
With so much information on the internet, it can often seem impossible to figure out what’s good for your hair and what tricks to avoid.
Luckily, Rachel Valentine uploaded a video to TikTok and offered a helping hand, where she shares a list of the best things not to do with your locks.
“First of all, I would never use supermarket shampoos,” the barber said.
When it comes to buying the right products for your hair, she also recommended it’s best to skip the 2-in-1 shampoos.
“Anything but professional.”
Sharing the list of no-nos, Rachel also said she would never attempt to brush or detangle her long locks with different types of brushes and combs.
The reason combs aren’t good, Rachel claims, is because their teeth are usually stiff — which can lead to breakage when pulled.
Instead, she recommended opting for specialty detangling teasers, which come in a variety of designs for different hair types.
“Number three, I would never tie my hair back wet,” she added.
“In fact, when our hair is wet it acts like an elastic band, stretching and returning.
”But sometimes […] it breaks,” the expert demonstrates in another video.

“So you’re more likely to break if you tie your hair back wet.
“I would never use a heat protectant.”
Last but not least, on the short list of things you would never catch her doing is shampooing her hair only once.
“I always shampoo it twice,” she explained.
“It’s important that you shampoo twice to ensure your scalp is completely clean.”
For those worried this might mean using more product, Rachel explained, “If you think about it long-term, if you cleanse your scalp completely, you should technically be able to stay longer between washes. ”
