There are many things to consider when deciding what the best hair-care routine is for you. With so many different treatments, serums, dyes, and cuts, it can all feel a bit outrageous. However, when you learn what you need to know, hair care becomes easy.
Heavy conditioners should never be used on hair that is fine or thinning. Your hair will look weighted down, which is the opposite of what you want! To add volume without a greasy look, use mousse conditioners or leave-in conditioners.
Avoid sun damage by using hair products with sunscreen. The sun can damage hair and decrease any benefits you will see from your hair care routine. Protecting your hair gives it long lasting health and color.
Don’t rub your hair with your towel when you are drying it. This can break the hair, resulting in frizzy and frayed hair. 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. Also, be careful brushing your hair while wet, as this can also cause damage. Instead use a wide-tooth comb.
Keep your blow dryer use to a minimum. Heated air that comes from dryers can cause great damage, so air drying is best. Only use your blow dryer on the coolest setting, and move the dryer around your hair, rather than letting it blow on a single spot. In order to minimize the amount of time you need to use the blow dryer, towel dry your hair first.
In the winter and fall, try to avoid being in the cold too long. Your hair can be dried out by cold weather. In addition, cold weather can decrease your hair’s oils and important nutrients that are needed for good health. If you’ll be stuck outside for a while, carefully bundle up first.
Now that you know more about hair care, you can better manage your routine. The sooner you apply these tips, the sooner you can enjoy noticeable results. If necessary, take the time to reread some of the tips, so that you can use then effectively to make your head of hair into a great one.
