If you like to style your hair in a ponytail, avoid placing the ponytail in the same spot on your head 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. If tying your hair back is a work requirement, avoid tying your hair back when you are not working.
To get your hair in better condition and make it stronger, try not to use too many hand-held drying devices. Curling irons and blow dryers are not that good for your hair. This can make it troublesome to get rid of frizz and hair damage. Anytime you can, let your hair rest and don’t use so much heat.
If your hair is dry, try this do-it-yourself conditioning treatment. Wash your hair and gently blot out any excess moisture, then apply a conditioner and put a plastic shower cap on for several minutes. The heat from the cap will enable the conditioner to penetrate your hair’s follicles more deeply.
Nevermind the old wives’ tale about more frequent trims causing your hair to grow faster. No matter how much you trim, human hair grows around 1/2 inch a month. Your hair may grow a little faster during the summer months or if you use biotin supplements. The main driver of hair growth is hormones; your stylist has nothing to do with it. A simple trim will get rid of split ends, which does give your hair a much better look.
There are now products available that will give your hair the effect of just having bathed in the salty ocean. Most of these products will contain salt or some other form of sodium. If you would rather make your own, create a solution of 1 cup water to 1 teaspoon salt. If desired, you can also add lavender oil (ten drops) for a pleasant scent and moisturizing effect.
Don’t rub or tug hair in a towel when you’re drying it. This can damage your hair, causing frizz and breakage. You should instead blot the wetness from your hair or wrap it up in a towel. It’s also best not to brush or comb your hair while it’s still wet, unless the comb you use is wide-toothed.
You should feel more confident now that you understand how to take good care of your hair. Your confidence will stem from the fact that your hair will begin to look much better. Take what you have learned and apply it so that you can show off your gorgeous hair.
