I'm a hairdresser – these are the five things I would never do to my hair, and you probably do them all | The Sun

WE all want healthier, longer hair, but with so many conflicting opinions online, it’s hard to know what to follow. 

Luckily one group of hairdressers is attempting to set the record straight. 

Emmie Hair Salon in Perth, Scotland, known online as @emmiehair, often shares hair hacks with its 4,500 followers. 

In one of their latest videos, one of the hairstylists can be seen sharing her key five top tips – including avoiding supermarket shampoo.

“Five tips from a hairdresser. 

“Do not use supermarket shampoos. Use professional products instead. 

“Only brush wet hair with a Tangle Teezer. 

“Always shampoo twice. 

“Heat protector is a must. 

“Use silk scrunchies, they are more gentle on the hair.”

Next, the stylist is seen holding a Tangle Teezer wet brush – supposedly meant to be gentler than a standard hairbrush. 

These are available from most retailers, including Amazon, and prices start at £10.49. 

The other products recommended throughout the video are silk scrunchies and heat protectors, also available at a range of stores. 

Fans loved the video, gaining more than 20,000 likes in its first month. 

In the comments, one follower suggested her own hack, which included visiting TK Maxx for discounts on professional hair care. She said: “For people who can’t afford [it], TK Maxx is great! I got a 2L Wella shampoo in there for €20.”
