Many people don’t know how to care for their hair. You are the only one who can take proper care of your hair. You can use this article to guide you, and you can use the advice it contains to help you take better care of your hair.
Ease up on small appliances that you when styling your hair in order to restore and strengthen its condition. Over-use of curling irons and blow dryers can damage your hair, which can lead to frizzy hair and split ends. Try giving your hair a little break from the heat here and there.
If your hair looks like it’s pretty dry, you can use a homemade treatment on it. After you wash your hair and get rid of a bit of its wetness, use your conditioner and put a shower cap on for a couple of minutes. The extra heat created by the cap allows the conditioner to penetrate further into your hair follicles.
Use a blow dryer as sparingly as possible. Your hair might look frizzy if you are using heat to style it. A better alternative is to wrap your hair while wet in a towel. Keep it wrapped for as much time as you have. This makes it easier for your locks to dry gently, avoiding frizz and damage.
Every time you use heat on your hair you are damaging it, and this goes for blow drying it. Keep your blow dryer moving constantly so it will not remain in the same spot for too long, and always set the dryer on the cool air setting. Use your fingers to get rid of knots as the hair dries so that it will be easier to brush later.
Be sure to always be gentle with your hair when you use a towel to dry it. This causes your hair to frizz, and it stretches the strands of hair, causing them to potentially break. A better option is to gently squeeze the excess water from your wet hair; you may also do so by loosely wrapping your hair in a towel or microfiber cloth. Never brush wet hair with anything but a wide-tooth comb.
Avoid using a blow dryer. Hot air from a blow dryer can really damage your hair, so try to let it dry naturally whenever possible. If you cannot dry your hair naturally, then be sure that you’re only using the lower settings on your blow dryer. To quickly dry your hair, before using a blow dryer you should towel dry it before hand.
