Here are a number of surprising habits that cause hair loss.

Hot tools

Using a blow dryer, flat iron, curling iron or other hot tools creates air bubbles within the hair shaft which lead to breakage and hair thinning.

Tight Hair Styles

Tight hairstyles like ponytails, buns, braids or any other style can lead to hair loss. According to Dermatologist Dr. William Kwan: "Wearing braids or extensions that are too tight for a long period of time can lead to permanent hair loss, This is called traction alopecia." To avoid hair loss keep braid or ponytails loose.
