I'm a professional hairdresser… here are five things I would never do to my locks including tying it up when wet | The Sun

A HAIRDRESSER has revealed the list of things she would never do to her locks – and it's bad news if you tie your hair whilst it's dripping wet.

With so many information on the internet, it can oftentimes feel impossible to figure out what's good for your hair and which hacks to steer clear of.


Luckily, offering helping hand, one whizz, Rachel Valentine, uploaded a video on TikTok sharing a list of the things to best not do to your locks.

''Number one is I would never use any supermarket shampoos,'' the hairdresser said.

''Number three, I would never tie my hair up wet,'' she went on to add.
