We’ve all suffered from a ‘bad hair’ day, but for some it’s never ending. It’s so frustrating to put so much time and effort into your hair, only to have it looking constantly flat, and dull. Fortunately, your ‘bad hair’ days can be a thing of the past – just read the excellent information that is in this article!
Go ahead and forget the old adage about brushing your hair 100 strokes a day. Over brushing can actually lead to hair loss, breakage of strands and increased oil production. Normal brushing of your hair once or twice daily is sufficient to keep it healthy and free of tangles and build-up.
A great hair care tip is to try out different dandruff shampoos, if you do, indeed, have dandruff. A lot of the time people with dandruff will say they aren’t noticing results with their dandruff shampoo. This is because different dandruff shampoos all have different ingredients in them, so using a variety will cover all the bases.
When you are in the shower and washing your hair, make sure you turn your hot water down, whenever you are doing your washing and conditioning. Hot water can dry out and irritate your scalp and this can cause flaking and dandruff that is unattractive and also, hard to get rid of.
Avoid overuse of your blow dryer. The heat from a blow-dryer is often damaging to hair, so make sure to dry it naturally. When you simply must use your blow dryer, try to use the coolest setting possible, and move the dryer around the head constantly. In order to dry hair faster, use a towel to dry it before you use a blow dryer.
Try using a cheap and simple deep-conditioning treatment for dry hair. Dampen your hair with a spray bottle and massage in a generous portion of your everyday conditioner. Then, you need to get your hair wrapped up in a towel that is warm and damp. Plastic wrap can be used too, and this is to trap heat. After 30 minutes, shampoo hair and rinse well.
Make sure you only apply conditioner to your hair and not to your scalp. It is the hair shaft that needs to be conditioned and have the oils and moisture replaced. Applying conditioner to your scalp will only make it more oily and weigh your hair down. Start putting the conditioner on your hair from about midway down all the way to the tips.
During the summer months, it’s crucial that you put extra effort into caring for your hair. Always take the time to wash your hair after swimming or spending time in the sun. It’s also a good idea to keep your hair covered with a bandanna or a loose cap, if you plan on being out all day.
