Having healthy and attractive hair need not be a mystery. There are many easy steps that you can take to make sure your hair is always pleasant in appearance and in style. Here are some tips to help you create a lush and stylish head of hair that you can be proud of at all times.
When you are using products for your hair make sure that you apply them directly to the hair and not on the scalp. This is important because adding hair products to your scalp can clog the pores of your head, which could lead to hair damage and/or loss of hair.
Do you suffer from dandruff? Seek out a shampoo and conditioner with an ingredient called tea tree oil! Tea tree oil is all-natural, and will work to soothe a dry scalp. This helps to prevent dandruff from being formed, and will leave your hair looking, feeling and even, smelling great.
While you should wash your hair often, don’t overdo it. Washing your hair too often, strips it of its natural oils, which gives it shine and volume. For most people, washing their hair a few times a week is enough, unless their hair is especially oily. Washing too often will turn hair dry and brittle.
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!
Use a blow dryer as sparingly as possible. Styling your hair with heat can damage your hair. Instead, wrap your wet hair in a towel for as long as possible. This allows hair to dry without damage, and reduces frizz.
Reduce the amount of heat you use on your hair. Hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons can all do significant damage to your hair. Your hair and your skin aren’t that different, and a product that would damage your skin will probably also damage your hair. Use these products less often or on a lower setting when possible.
Ignore the notion that you’ll see faster hair growth after frequent trims. Whether you trim or not, hair grows around a half inch per month. Although, during the summer hair does tent to grow a bit faster, or if you are taking biotin supplements, but mostly it’s hormones which control growth, not how often you cut it. However, having your hair trimmed keeps split ends at bay, which does improve the hair’s appearance.
After shampooing your hair you should always rinse it out the best you can. Even if you think all of the shampoo is out of your hair you should rinse it out again. Shampoo residue can cause build up and dry out your hair and scalp that can cause dandruff.
So, now you can see that beautiful hair can be yours with just a little work and attention to detail. A good cut, routine care and simple grooming are the keys to success. It’s time to stop wishing for healthy, supple hair and take the advice you have been given. Make it happen!
