Are you fed up with split ends? Would you like to combat the frizz problem? You can find answers here. In the article that follows you will see a few tips you can use to care for your hair and so that you can avoid the common pitfalls in hair care.
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.
If you are trying to restore and strengthen your hair, avoid using heated styling appliances. Over time, curling irons, flatirons and blow dryers can cause damage that leads to frizz and breakage. Every now and then, try to get your hair out of the heat!
Look at your diet if your hair is not looking that great. Your hair needs iron, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids, and other important vitamins and nutrients in order to keep it as healthy as possible. Make sure you take multivitamins if you can’t get enough nutrients.
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.
If you have oily hair, do not wash it everyday. Washing your hair two or three times a week is fine if it tends to get oily. Make sure you wash your hair thoroughly and rinse all the shampoo or conditioner out of your hair. If your hair stays oily, try different products.
If you happen to suffer from a flaky scalp, try using this treatment bi-weekly: Start sectioning your hair and do a gentle rubbing on your scalp using a rubbing alcohol-saturated cotton pad. Once the alcohol dries, start brushing your hair. Finish with a thorough rinse using warm water, and be sure not to shampoo.
Be careful with the use of hair extensions. While hair extensions are a quick way to get longer hair, they can also cause serious damage to your natural hair and scalp. The heavy weight of the extensions can pull out natural hair, and the bonding solution can dry it out.
Avoid blow-drying your hair after your shampoo. Extreme heat can damage your hair shaft and cause your hair to dry out. Brittle hair will break easily. Instead, after you shampoo, dry your hair gently with a soft towel, and allow your hair to air dry naturally. This will help your hair to retain its natural oils.
There is always a solution to every hair issue! The more you know about addressing common hair care concerns, the more likely you will be to overcome these difficulties. Apply what you’ve just learned. You may be surprised at how much better your hair feels and looks.
