Many people are not sure how to take care for their hair. Ultimately, hair care is your own responsibility. If you are unsure of how to set up a daily plan for keeping your hair looking good, follow the good advice below.
If you’re fond of wearing your hair back in a ponytail, be sure not to tie your hair back in the same place on your head each time. Most hair accessories will cause damage to your hair where they rest on your hair. If you have to keep your hair back during work hours, be sure to give it a rest, and wear it down when you’re off the clock.
If you have fine or thin hair, avoid the use of heavy conditioners. These weight down hair and make it seem finer and thinner. The best conditioners that avoid this problem are mouse-like conditioners and sprayed leave-in conditioners.
Try to cut out using a blow dryer to take your hair back to its original condition and also to make it stronger. Blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons all do damage to your hair. Now and then, let your hair rest by avoiding heated tools.
Forget the myth that frequent trims make your hair grow faster. Healthy hair grows roughly the same amount each month, approximately half an inch. Hair growth has nothing to do with stylist’s trims. Trims can help with appearance, as they remove split ends.
Keep the sun from damaging your hair by keeping an eye out for a sunscreen containing product. The sun’s harmful rays can damage your hair and render pointless all of the time you’ve spent caring for it. Using protection for your hair will keep it looking healthier, with richer color, longer.
You can damage your hair by blowdrying it. The best way to do it is to use the cold air setting and keep the blow dryer moving, so it does not stay on one spot for more than a few seconds. Untangle knots with your fingers while drying your hair to avoid damaging your hair when you brush it afterward.
It’s crucial that you find ways for your hair to hold onto moisture. Otherwise, it’ll become overly brittle and dry, and will be more prone to breakage. One way to help your hair retain moisture is the temperature you keep the water at when rinsing out your hair. When conditioning your hair, always use cool water to rinse it out. This helps your hair shafts because it seals in the moisture.
To give your hair that look that says you just came out of the ocean, look for products that can mimic this look. Keep an eye out for bottles called “salt spray”, or something like that. If you would rather make your own, create a solution of 1 cup water to 1 teaspoon salt. You should then put in around 10 drops of essential lavendar oil, there it is, the ocean!
