While a pony tail is an easy way to style your hair when you don’t have a lot of time, it’s best not to style your hair this way, too often. Keeping your hair pulled back with a hair tie can lead to hair loss and damage. Be sure to change up the way you style your hair.
If you like your hair to look the way it looks after a swim in the ocean, you can get products that replicate salty ocean effects. Look for the words “salt spray” on sprays. Mix up eight ounces of water with a teaspoon of salt to make up your own mixture. If desired, you can also add lavender oil (ten drops) for a pleasant scent and moisturizing effect.
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.
Make sure you are getting proper nutrition and rest. Stress, on its own, does not make your hair fall out. Normal hair loss is from 50 to 120 strands each day. Stress does, however, use up additional resources and when your body becomes deficient, hair loss can result. Resources include the B Vitamins and other important nutrients. Additionally, poor sleep over time wears down your body’s adrenal system, impacting hormones, which can also trigger hair loss.
You should avoid using styling products with alcohol, as it will dry out your hair and contribute to breakage. You can try natural styling products to achieve the style you desire. Otherwise, synthetic products without alcohol will do the trick without the fuss or the damage. Check the ingredients list on your next shopping trip!
Although it is tempting to wash your hair after sweating in the summer, sweat itself isn’t actually that dirty. You can end up washing your hair too often in the summer, turning it dry and brittle. Rather than washing your hair every time you sweat, use just a rinse and conditioner occasionally. This should clean your hair enough between shampoos.
Don’t use salt spray on your hair. While salt spray is great for creating beach waves and minimizing grease on your hair, it is also very damaging to your hair. After all, salt is a drying agent, so it will take all of the moisture out of your hair and leave it dry and brittle.
