There are many who find it hard to take good care of their hair. At the end of the day, they way you manage and style your hair is your decision. At least let this article guide you in the right direction, use the following advice to care for your hair and see what you like.
If your conditioner doesn’t keep your hair as soft as it should, consider using a leave-in conditioner as well. A good leave-in conditioner can be applied right out of the shower, and will give your hair the moisture it craves. You may also want to try a deep conditioning treatment.
For those with curly hair, nix SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate) from your hair care routine, for bouncy, care-free curls. SLS is a harsh stripping agent that robs your hair of essential oils. This creates the illusion of frizz and encourages breakage. You can spot this substance by checking the ingredients of your products.
Your diet might be to blame if you have dull, lifeless hair. Incorporating lots of omega-3 acids, vitamins, iron and other nutrients is critical for healthy hair. If you are not eating these things, try a vitamin to supplement.
Women who are taller should have medium-length hair. This will make them look a little shorter than they are. On the other hand, shorter women can get away with pretty much any haircut with the exception of long hair. Shorter women tend to look even shorter when their hair is too long.
If you desire how your hair looks when you are done swimming, there are different products that can try to mimic this effect. Search for labels that say salt spray or the like. You can create your own salt solution by mixing a cup of water with a spoonful of salt. You can add lavender oil for a splash of fragrance; about ten drops per eight ounces of water should do the trick!
Be sure to wash your brushes and combs frequently. Any oils, grime, or other substances in your hair are passed to the comb and will be passed back to your hair, when you use them again. Take the time to soak them in warm soapy water and lay them out to dry on a towel.
Try not to use a blow dryer a lot. The intense heat from an electric dryer can and will cause damage to the hair, both the strands and the roots. If you must blow dry it, use its cool setting and don’t have it hover over a single spot too long. In order to speed up the drying process, dry the hair with a towel before turning on the hair dryer.
Take care of your hair during the summer. Over exposure to sun and chlorine can seriously damage hair and result in split ends. Wear a hat in the sun, and a latex swim cap while in the pool. Also, wash your hair with a chlorine-removal shampoo in fresh water after swimming in a chlorinated pool.
