Many people have difficulty learning to take care care of their hair properly. The ball is in your court to know how to take care of the hair. The tips in this article will provide you with some new ideas on caring for and styling your hair.
Never brush wet hair. Wet hair is more easily damaged than dry hair. To keep damage low, brush the hair before washing or wait until it dries a bit.
Damaging your hair can actually be caused by blow drying it. Try using the cool setting and moving it around constantly to avoid keeping it over one spot too long. Make sure you untangle any knots in your hair as it dries so you do not cause it harm when you brush.
There are now products available that will give your hair the effect of just having bathed in the salty ocean. These sprays may be called “salt spray” or something like that. You can make your own salt spray by adding a tsp of salt to 8oz of water. Then, add about 10 lavender oil drops and you now have the mix that you need.
When drying your hair, make sure that you never pull and tug on your hair. This can damage your hair and make it look fizz. Rather, pat your hair dry, squeeze extra moisture with your hands, or sweep the hair up into a towel. Also try not to brush your hair if it is wet. This can damage the ends and cause breakage.
Keep your blow dryer use to a minimum. Heat from your blow dryer can damage your hair greatly, so attempt to dry it naturally. If you have to use your blow dryer, make sure it stays on the coolest setting, and avoid holding it over one section of hair for too long. For even quicker drying, use a towel before you blow-dry.
When your hair looks dull, it makes sense to utilize clarifying shampoos. Lifeless, dull hair is usually caused by build-up of hair products. Clarifying shampoo can be used for a short period of time to remove buildup and bring life back to your hair.
Here is an easy way to restore moisture to dry hair. You don’t need a fancy product, just use a good sized portion of your everyday conditioner Then, wrap hair in a damp, warm towel or plastic wrap to hold in the heat. Wait about a half hour and then shampoo and rinse.
To protect your hair sleep on a silk or satin pillow case. Regular cotton pillowcases can cause your hair to dry out by leaching it of oils and moisture. When you sleep on a silk pillowcase, your curls will retain their shape overnight. A satin scarf and a satin bonnet are also good things to try.
Be open to trying different brands of hair products. If you switch the brand every now and then, you will see your hair react positively. You might find that one brand helps your scalp, while another helps it stay straight and smooth.
When brushing, instead of starting at the top near your scalp, brush from the bottom up. If the ends are knotted, untangle them with care in order to prevent them from breaking. After the knots are removed, gentle strokes can be used over your entire head of hair.
Wait until your hair is dry before brushing or combing it; this will prevent damage and breakage. It’s best to use a comb whose teeth are wide-set and a brush with flexible, gentle bristles. Comb tangles in the bottom of hair when you begin, gradually working your way up until you get to your scalp.
