If you plan on going swimming you should wet your hair before entering the pool. Most pool water has chlorine in it and it can cause damage to hair. Wetting the hair before going in will ensure that your hair soak up fresh water instead of the chlorine filled water in the pool.
Your lifestyle influences the way your hair looks. Being stressed, not getting enough sleep or smoking tobacco means your hair will not look good. You also need to maintain a balanced diet so that your hair gets all the vitamins and nutrients it needs. Get rid of your bad habits and you should see a difference!
If you can, try not to blow dry your hair too often and do not color your hair frequently. Both of these can cause your hair to dry out, damaging it in the process. If these products have already dried your hair out, you can use coconut oil twice a week to add moisture.
The idea that frequent haircuts cause your hair to grow more quickly is untrue. The hair on a human head tends to grow about a half an inch every month, no matter how frequently it gets cut. You may see slightly faster growth in summer, or if you take biotin supplements, but it’s hormones that control growth, not your stylist’s scissors. Trims do eliminate split ends, though, which can make your hair look much better.
Try changing up the kind of shampoos and conditioners you use every now and again. Your hair may get used to the kind of products you are using and may not respond to them as well as they may have at first. Do not downgrade the brands you are using though!
Don’t use your bristle hairbrush on wet hair. Always use a comb or pick on your beautiful wet tresses. A hairbrush encourages breakage and split ends. Just lightly towel dry your hair and remove tangles by gently combing through your hair with a wide-toothed comb, or even your fingers. Allow to air dry whenever possible to minimize heat damage.
It is not true that if you pluck out one gray hair, several will grow in its place. It is true, however, that you could damage the hair’s root, cause an infection or leave scarring if you pluck out gray hairs. Additionally, as can be seen in over-plucked eyebrows, when you pluck out hair, it does not always grow back.
