Are you envious of beautiful people with fantastic hair? Are you wondering what secret they are keeping from you? People often consider people with good hair to be lucky, but most of the time, people get great hair through hard work. If you’d like to find out a few of the ways that these folks take care of their hair, and make it look great, simply read on.
Try to avoid wearing your hair back in a ponytail too often. You can use fabric scrunchies to minimize stress caused to the hair in that area; however, you can still experience breakage. If your job requires you to wear hair back, when you aren’t working, wear it down as much as possible.
Don’t brush your hair when wet, if you want to avoid damage and keep hair healthy. Wet hair is delicate and easily breaks when brushed. To reduce damage done while brushing, brush it before you wash it and then wait until it is fully dry before brushing it again.
If your hair is fine or thin, it’s best to avoid using any heavy conditioners. They will only wear down your hair making it look finer and thinner. You can add mousse or leave-in conditioners to give your hair volume, and these will not leave a greasy residue.
If you discover that your hair is becoming dull, you may want to think about your current diet. In order to keep your hair healthy, you need to consume enough vitamin E, iron, Omega-3 fatty acids and other important nutrients. If you cannot consume enough of these nutrients in your diet, use a well-rounded multivitamin to make up the difference.
You can revive parched tresses using ingredients in your cupboard. After washing your hair, add conditioner to still-damp hair and put a shower cap on for three to five minutes. The heat that is created will force the conditioner to go down deep into your hair.
Nevermind the old wives’ tale about more frequent trims causing your hair to grow faster. Human hair can grow only about half an inch every month no matter how regularly you cut it. It’s not your stylist’s shears that are making your hair grow faster, although you may experience a slight increase in growth during the summer, or if you’re taking biotin supplements. Trimming your hair does get rid of split ends, which makes your hair look a lot better.
Never pull at your hair or rub it with a towel when you’re drying it. This causes your hair to frizz, and it stretches the strands of hair, causing them to potentially break. Instead, try to treat your hair gently by patting it lightly, squeezing it with ease or wrapping it in a cotton towel. You should also avoid brushing or combing it while it’s wet, unless you use a wide-toothed comb.
Beautiful hair is not hard to get! Once you understand the basics of hair-styling, you will be able to achieve great looking hair, as well. Take advantage of the things you have learned and use it to get the hair you desire. Eventually people will start asking for your hair secrets.
