Do you find yourself coveting other women’s perfect hair? While you might think that people just got lucky when they were blessed with nice hair, chances are they just take great care of their hair. Read on to find out how you can get the hair looks, that others will envy.
Keep your hair damage free by not brushing it when wet. Wet hair tends to be a lot more fragile than hair that is dry, making it susceptible to breakage. To keep damage low, brush the hair before washing or wait until it dries a bit.
For finer hair and thinner hair, stay away from heavier conditioners. They will only wear down your hair making it look finer and thinner. If you’d like to add a little volume without weighing down your hair, try using a light leave-in conditioner or a conditioning mousse.
Try a deep conditioning treatment if your hair feels dry. Wash your hair and gently blot out any excess moisture, then apply a conditioner and put a plastic shower cap on for several minutes. This allows your hair to fully absorb the conditioner and lock in moisture.
Avoid breakage from dry and brittle hair by making sure you keep your hair moisturized. When you are shampooing your hair, the water temperature can make quite a difference. Rinse with cold water after shampooing your hair. This will seal moisture into the hair’s shaft.
Avoid rubbing or otherwise pulling at 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. You should just gently squeeze, pat, or blot extra moisture, or you can wrap it in a towel with some air to circulate. Also try not to brush your hair if it is wet. This can damage the ends and cause breakage.
Alcohol in hairdressing products will dry your hair out, so avoid them. This can really harm your hair, so be careful when deciding on what products to use. Look at the labels, and ensure the products you buy only contribute to healthy looking hair.
