There are many things to consider when deciding what the best hair-care routine is for you. It may seem overwhelming when you consider all of the available hair care information. However, you may find that only a few key steps are needed to keep your hair looking its best.
Moving your ponytail around regularly will help prevent issues. Even using soft, fabric-covered scrunchies, can cause repeated stress to that area, which will result in eventual breakage. If you have to pull all of your hair back because of work, or for other reasons, try to pull it down for a little while every day.
It is important for your hair to retain moisture and avoid becoming dry and brittle because this may lead to breakage. Using the right temperature water while you shampoo is one way to accomplish this. Once you have finished shampooing your hair, make sure the final rinse is cool water. This keeps the moisture intact in the shafts of your hair.
You may be one of the people who have noticed your hair is particularly attractive after you take a dip in the ocean. You can use specially-formulated products to mimic this effect. Look for salt sprays in the conditioning section of your favorite stores. If you desire to create your own concoction, you can mix a teaspoon of salt and 8 ounces of water. Next, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil, (lavender works well), and the result will be a bottle full of seaside bliss.
Heat styling tools, such as curling irons and straighteners can dry and damage hair. Protect your hair before using these appliances by applying a specialized serum or cream. Such products place a buffer between your hair and the heat.
When you are using conditioner, make sure you are spreading it evenly throughout your hair. Be patient when conditioning your hair, and leave it on for a few moments while bathing, then rinse at the end.
Don’t shampoo your hair until 48 hours after the last time you’ve colored it. Your hair’s cuticle needs some time to seal once its been treated. It doesn’t take much to re-open the cuticle. Exposure to water can be enough to do this. You’ll be happy you waited when you see your shiny, healthy hair.
