Too much hair loss or hair loss can be a sign of a health condition or can be caused due to many factors, including Vitamin D deficiency.

Many Vitamin D rich foods and nutrients can have an impact on the health of your hair. If you experience hair loss, you should take a healthy diet, reduce stress and even supplements, if required.
However, sometimes, one might be making mistakes in handling their hair. You need to manage your hair with care from washing to detangling, in order to prevent hair loss.
Keep reading to know about the common mistakes that lead to hair loss and what is the best trick to detangle your hair.
1. Detangling hair after shampooing or washing
You hair is at its weakest stage when wet, which can also make it easier to tangle. Combing and too much pulling of tangled and wet hair can increase the risk of hair breakage and major hair loss. To avoid this mistake, you can try combing your hair before wetting them in the shower.  And, you can also try combing your hair while taking the shower. Apply the conditioner first and then detangle the hair strands with only your fingers, and then you can use a wide-toothed comb right before washing.
2. Back combing your hair regularly
You must know that back combing your hair regularly can also detangle your hair pretty badly and eventual hair loss. Some people back-comb their hair from the roots working towards the ends. This hairstyling technique adds volume and texture to your hair, but can lead to immense damage. Its regular use can affect your hair cuticles, which hence, can also disturb your hair’s quality, resulting in frizzy hair and more breakage and hair loss. To get more volume without the damage, you can apply light chemical hair sprays, which help you in getting a similar hairstyle.
3. Combing hair from the roots down
If you comb your hair, you should always start from the middle and then glide downwards. Move the comb upwards or near the roots only when they are completely untangled in the bottom half. If you start combing your hair from the roots, there can be too much tangles on the route to the bottom. This can cause strain on your scalp, and result in hair breakage. This makes your hair and roots weak, and leads to excessive hair fall.
4. Combing after applying hair product
Combing after applying any hair product is a common mistake that people make. One should never comb just after applying a hair paste serum or cream for treatment or hairstyling. You should only use your fingers to comb through your hair once you apply any hair product. If you use a comb after the application of a hairstyling product, it not only loses its effectiveness, but can also damage  your hair and its texture. Eventually, it will lead to more breakage and hair loss with time.
