Everyone should know the hair is considered to be a woman’s ‘crowning glory’! We strive for luscious, healthy locks, but some of us always have dull and flat-looking hair. Read on for valuable information to help you achieve healthy, manageable hair.
Avoid damaging your hair when shampooing. Before you put any shampoo on your hair, make sure it is completely wet. Then, lather the shampoo in your hands and apply to your hair. Scrub no longer than 30 seconds. By taking these steps, you will avoid any extra hair breakage.
Limit blow dryer use. Hot air that comes out of blow dryers can cause a lot of damage to your hair. Therefore, allow your hair to dry naturally whenever you can. Only use your blow dryer on the coolest setting, and move the dryer around your hair, rather than letting it blow on a single spot. In order to dry hair faster, use a towel to dry it before you use a blow dryer.
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!
Stress is one of the worst things for your body, hair and scalp as you should try to reduce this at all costs. Stress can cause dandruff and facilitate the graying process, which damages the way that you look. Eliminate stress and triggers of stress to feel and look great during the day.
Buy the correct shampoo and conditioner. Only buy the type of shampoo and conditioner that is suitable for your hair type. This isn’t necessarily the most expensive brand! Also, don’t wash it too often or you will strip the natural oils from your hair. A good rule of thumb is every other day for oily or normal hair, and twice weekly for dry hair.
When you wash your hair, be sure to really clean your scalp. The shampoo that you use will remove the buildup of dead skin, oil, dirt and hair products that could be clogging your hair follicles. If your follicles begin to become clogged, you may start to suffer from hair loss or slowed growth.
Wait until your hair is dry to use a brush or comb and you will avoid damage and breakage. The best type of brush has bristles that are soft, natural and flexible. Eliminate tangles by brushing the ends of your hair, then working upward to the roots.
Do not use a brush on wet hair. Using a brush on hair that is wet subjects the hair to breakage. Instead of using a brush on your hair when it’s wet, use a comb to detangle it. Your hair will suffer from less breakage than if you used a brush.
Now you can probably see that getting gorgeous locks is easier than it seems. If you too apply these ideas, you will have lustrous healthy hair in short order. All you need is a little patience and these expert tips, and your hair will soon become your “crowning glory.”
