Does every hair commercial full of models flaunting beautiful tresses have you staring in the mirror at your lifeless locks wondering what you’re doing wrong? While you might think those people with great hair are lucky, you’d be surprised to find that they use tips that you can use, too. Use the following tips, to learn how others have gotten such beautiful hair in their lives.
Do not style your hair with heated appliances every day. Overusing your curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer, curler or other products can cause fried, frizzy hair. Allow your hair to air-dry as often as possible, and give your hair a break from heated styling tools. If you must use these tools, apply a heat-protective spray or balm to your hair prior to use.
When you are using a hair dryer to dry your hair you should not keep it in one place on your hair for any amount of time. The focused heat on that part of the hair can cause damage and dry your hair out unnecessarily. Keep it moving!
If you are finding yourself dealing with frizz and uncontrollable curly hair, consider trying the no-poo or lo-poo method. This hair care method involves using only conditioner to wash your hair on a regular basis. Curly hair needs oils to maintain its shape and style, so shampoos which strip the oil away can cause every day to be a bad hair day. Switch to using conditioner on a regular basis and shampooing only once a week.
Those with curly hair should avoid styling with heat regularly. Irons that reach over four hundred degrees can actually permanently alter the helices of your curls. This creates curls that are not uniform, and continues a dependence on the hair iron or blow dryer. Learn to love your curls and they will reward you with confidence!
There are now products available that will give your hair the effect of just having bathed in the salty ocean. Choose styling products that contain phrases like “salt spray” or “ocean water”. Try putting together a teaspoon of salt and one cup of water for your own mixture. Then, add a few drops of oil of lavender to complete your mixture.
Living a healthy lifestyle has everything to do with the healthiness of your hair. Eat a balanced diet, and make sure you get plenty of exercise. Excessive smoking, not getting enough sleep, and other unhealthy habits are detrimental to the health of your hair. Take good care of yourself, and your hair will follow suit.
Use a soft brush made out of animal hairs instead of plastic. Do not brush your hair when it is wet and always be gentle. You should start at the end of your hair and work your way up as you gently untangle all the knots. Make sure you take your time!
Anyone can have a head of beautiful and attractive hair. Once you have the grasp the basics of styling your hair, you can have awesome looking locks too! Take advantage of what you’ve learned, and work to achieve the hair of your dreams. Before you know it, people will want to know all of your hair secrets.
