When you have freshly trimmed hard make sure you make extra efforts to care for your hair after. You want to keep up with grooming your hair so that it is easier to manage. When you let your go it can be hard to manage it later on either for you or for a hairstylist.
Don’t use heavy conditioners if you have thin or fine hair. Your hair will look weighted down, which is the opposite of what you want! Light conditioners work better to add volume, without making the hair greasy or heavy.
Restrict your use of heat styling tools so that your hair can remain strong. Curling irons and blow dryers can seriously dry your hair, and can make it nearly impossible to control frizz and restore condition. Every now and then, let your hair rest.
When you are washing your hair, do it in two separate steps. Take half the shampoo you would typically use for your whole head and wash your roots with that. Rinse that out, and then use some more shampoo to wash the hair shafts. This technique ensures that you wash all the hair and not just your roots.
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.
Make sure your hair is thoroughly wet before you apply shampoo and begin washing it. If you start to scrub your hair and scalp without getting it wet enough first, you are much more likely to have strands of your hair break off in your hands. When the hair is wet, it is more pliable and will resist breakage better.
If you like the way your hair looks after swimming in the ocean, there are products that mimic the salty ocean effects. Keep an eye out for bottles called “salt spray”, or something like that. If you wish to generate your own solution, try mixing eight ounces of purified water with a teaspoon of salt. Then, add about 10 lavender oil drops and you now have the mix that you need.
As you can see, there are plenty of options for your hair care routine. You will be able to reclaim your tresses and enjoy beautiful hair if you take a little extra time to find the best products and tools for your hair type. This journey should be fun, so enjoy looking at your options!
