So many things are important when your hair care is involved. Sometimes your hair care routine can seem totally overwhelming. However, when you learn what you need to know, hairdressing becomes easy.
If you are a frequent ponytail wearer, don’t place the ponytail on the same spot every time. Even if you use soft scrunchies, you will experience some stress on the scalp if you are always wearing your ponytail in the same spot. When your job requires tying your hair back, make sure to give it a break when you are not working.
It’s not true that cutting your hair more makes it grow faster. No matter how often it is cut, human hair will grow at a rate of about a half-inch every month. You may see slightly faster growth in summer, or if you take biotin supplements, but it’s hormones that control growth, not your stylist’s scissors. Trims do eliminate split ends, though, which can make your hair look much better.
Do not attempt to brush your hair while it is soaking wet; wait until it has dried. Softer, more flexible bristled brushes or wide-toothed combs are preferable. Gently detangle your hair by starting at the ends of your hair and slowly working your way up.
Make sure that the shampoo you use (and the way you use it) does not eliminate all of the natural oils in your hair. This applies even for those who have extremely oily hair, as harsh shampoos can damage your hair and cause your scalp to increase oil production. It can also damage your hair tremendously, so be sure that you’re using gentle products. Some people can even get away with only washing their hair a couple times a week.
Hair changing with age isn’t uncommon. Your hair may become drier, more brittle or more gray. If you are really lucky, you could experience a texture transformation, from curly to straight, or the other way around. If you are worried about these changes, consult with your doctor or a dermatologist.
Spring water, sprayed onto your hair, can revitalize a flat hairdo. Apply the water with a spray and make sure that it is absorbed thoroughly into your hair. You will ramp up the volume by using this method.
If your hair is dry, consider turning down the heat on your next shower. Hot water has a tendency to dry out your hair, as well as your scalp, which takes the healthy look away from it. Warm water is much better for your hair and your body. A final rinse with cool water before you get out of the shower will give your hair some extra shine.
