Many people do things to their hair to achieve the style they want. Unfortunately, the practices they often use are not good for the overall health of their hair. Anyone can have the hairstyle they desire, while still maintaining proper hair care, as you will see in the following article.
To maintain healthy and damage free hair, try not to brush when it’s still wet. Compared with dry hair, fully saturated hair is more delicate and prone to splitting and breakage. Always brush your hair when it is dry, in order to avoid damaging your hair.
Distribute your hair’s natural oils throughout all of your hair. To do this, begin by bending over and brushing your hair. Start at the scalp and brush down towards the end of your hair. Once your hair is brushed all the way through, massage your scalp with your fingers.
Avoid products that are not formulated for your specific hair type. Various hair care products exist on the market, and within those are variations for each type of hair, whether oily, dry, sun-damaged or even, colored. Making the wrong decision in products can have negative effects on your hair and make your existing issues worse.
Nevermind the old wives’ tale about more frequent trims causing your hair to grow faster. The hair on a human head tends to grow about a half an inch every month, no matter how frequently it gets cut. It is possible that you will notice more rapid growth during the summer months, or if you regularly take biotin, but faster growth is attributable to hormonal changes, not haircuts. Frequent trims, however, can be advisable if you have a problem with split ends.
If you enjoy the look of your hair after a day in the ocean, you can buy products that can give your hair the same effect. To locate them, look for phrases like “salt spray” on product labels. To make a similar version at home, simply dissolve one teaspoonful of table salt in one cupful of water. If desired, you can also add lavender oil (ten drops) for a pleasant scent and moisturizing effect.
Keep your terrycloth towels far away from your curly hair. Curls should only be dried with cotton or microfiber towels. Using a terrycloth towel to dry will cause frizz and will pull your curls out of shape. Consider using a old cotton t-shirt or even a paper towel. Be sure as well to blot your hair dry to keep your curls looking spectacular.
Alcohol damages hair, and can cause it to be dull, dry and lifeless. Dry hair breaks easier, making you more prone to hair loss so be aware of the product you are using. Read labels of all the products you use in your hair.
So there you have it, no one has to sacrifice the health of their hair for the hairstyle they want. Any practices do currently do that may be harming your hair can be cast aside if you adopt the hair care techniques from this article. You’ll notice that your hair looks better in no time.
