Taylor Rose, from Michigan, USA, (pictured) is a Board Certified Trichologist, someone who studies and treats hair and scalp, and she shared the five things she would never do to her own hair. From styling a ‘model bun’ no more than once a week to never swimming in a pool with dry hair, her expert advice is considered ‘life-changing’ for some.

1. No ‘model buns’

First off, Taylor said she would never wear her hair in a trendy ‘model bun’ more than once a week.

Although she loves the style and likes to push her hair out of her face, Taylor claims that this slicked-back style can “cause traction alopecia and receding hairline.”

“Not worth exaggerating,” he wrote.

2. Don’t wear elastics often

Tying your hair into a ponytail is fine for working out, but Taylor doesn’t recommend using elastic hair ties.

“Occasionally painless, but repeated pressure from tight elastics can cause traction/receding hairline alopecia AND can break hair shafts right down the middle,” she wrote.

Instead of an elastic band, she recommends opting for a silk or satin scrunchie to minimize any damage.

Surprisingly, Taylor Claims That Jumping Into A Pool With Dry Hair Can Do Significant Damage To Strands.

She Claims That The Hair Is

Surprisingly, Taylor claims that jumping into a pool with dry hair can do significant damage to strands. She claims that hair is “like a sponge” that will soak up “all the nasty chlorine water” and chemicals.

3. Never swim in a pool with dry hair.

Surprisingly, Taylor claims that jumping into a pool with dry hair can do significant damage to strands.

She claims that hair is “like a sponge” that will soak up “all the nasty chlorine water” and chemicals.

Instead, he strongly recommends saturating hair with clean water before swimming.

This will ensure that most of the ‘gross pool water’ stays out of your hair.

Another Thing She Never Does Is Sleep With Her Hair Wet, Despite How Tempting That Might Be. 'This Is My Biggest No No. I Noticed A Huge Difference In The Health Of My Hair When I Stopped Doing This,

Another thing she never does is sleep with her hair wet, despite how tempting that might be. ‘This is my biggest no no. I noticed a HUGE difference in the health of my hair when I stopped doing this,” Taylor said, adding that hair is weaker when wet (file image)

4. Never sleep with wet hair

Another thing she never does is sleep with her hair wet, despite how tempting that might be.

‘This is my biggest no no. I noticed a HUGE difference in the health of my hair when I stopped doing this,” Taylor said, adding that hair is weaker when wet.

“Sleeping with wet hair can literally do a lot of damage to your locks.”

Hair is made up of 33 percent hydrogen bonds and ionic bonds, both of which “break in water and reform when dry,” meaning hair is vulnerable to damage when wet.

5. Do not dry your hair immediately after a shower

Similar to points three and four, blow-drying your hair immediately after showering is a big no-no.

‘This goes back to bonds again. When the hair is weak, we must avoid any damaging activities (heat is one of the most damaging!)’, she said.

Instead, let your hair dry to 85 percent before blow-drying it with heat.

Since then, the revealing video shared on Instagram has been viewed more than half a million times and received thousands of comments.
