Hair is something almost everyone has, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to deal with. For some people, great-looking hair comes naturally, but for many others, it requires a lot of work. Whether your hair is thin or thick, flat or poofy, the advice in this article will help you.
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.
For minimizing breakage, be sure that your hair is completely wet prior to applying shampoo. Don’t use any more than about a quarter-size dollop. Then proceed to rub the shampoo in between your palms to start with. Be sure to lather up for no more than 30 seconds or so.
Trimming your hair does not affect how fast your hair grows. Human hair grows approximately half an inch a month, no matter how much you cut it. You may see more growth in the summer or if you are taking biotin. That’s because of hormones though, not scissors. Trims can help with appearance, as they remove split ends.
If you have curly hair, put down the brush and comb! Curly hair should only be brushed or combed while it is soaking wet. For the best results, apply conditioner to your wet hair before you comb through it. Be sure to only use a wide toothed comb so as to not cause any damage. This will keep your curls looking their best.
Use a hair serum to turn frizzy hair into hair that shines. There are many serums that have been specifically designed for whatever type of hair you may have. These serums can give your hair the sleekness and body that you are looking for. Check out your local drugstore or salong to see what they have in stock.
If you have problems with dull hair, try using a clarifying shampoo. Typically, dull hair is caused by hair products building up over a period of time. To prevent this, try using a clarifying shampoo one or two times a week, in order to strip any dirt or hair care product residue that has accumulated.
Try not to stay outside, in the frigid temperatures, for long periods of time during the brisk months of fall and winter. Cold weather may dry up your hair and lower the amount of healthy oils and nutrients on your scalp. Make sure you protect your hair if you need to be outdoors for a long time.
It’d be great if the only effort hair required was washing! Unfortunately, for many of us, it takes a lot more work. Now that you’ve read the suggestions in this article, you know what you need to do to get your hair looking beautiful. All you have to do is put in the effort.
