Maintaining clean, shiny hair does not have to be difficult. Read on for ideas on how you can decide which styles and hairdressing methods can bring out the best in your hair!
Frequent trimming of your hair does not make it grow faster, despite the myth that it does. Human hair can grow only about half an inch every month no matter how regularly you cut it. You can sometimes see faster growth with biotin supplements or in the summer; however, hormones, not scissors, control hair growth. A good trim will get rid of any split ends and improve your hair’s appearance.
Styling products that contain sunblock are important for ensuring that your hair is not damaged by sun exposure. The sun can damage your hair and reduce any benefit provided by a good hairdressing routine. Protecting your hair gives it long lasting health and color.
If you like to style your hair in a ponytail, avoid placing the ponytail in the same spot on your head every time. Even using soft, fabric-covered scrunchies, can cause repeated stress to that area, which will result in eventual breakage. If you have to wear your hair in a ponytail for your job, make sure that you let your hair hang loose whenever you are not at work.
Protect your curls with a satin pillowcase as opposed to a regular cotton one. Cotton pillowcases dry your hair by absorbing all the moisture and oils. Satin pillowcases protect the hair allowing you to wake up with the same curls you went to sleep with. Satin scarfs and bonnets work too.
Don’t get attached to a certain brand of conditioner and shampoo. If you switch the brand every now and then, you will see your hair react positively. One brand may remove the buildup of another and keep the scalp healthy and clean.
As you brush your hair, begin at the ends, and move up to the roots. Detangle your hair carefully as you work through your hair to minimize breakage. Once the knots are out, brush your hair from the top to the ends.
Don’t use heavy conditioners if you have thin or fine hair. This only weighs your hair down giving it a thinner appearance. The best conditioners to use for volume are mousse conditioners or leave-in conditioners.
You can encourage hair growth by regularly brushing your hair. It can also break up clogged pores on your head that might be hindering the growth of your hair. Make a habit of making 100 passes through your hair every day to stimulate its roots.
Eating right and not smoking are a couple ways to keep your hair shiny and healthy. As you design the optimal hairdressing routine, consider factors like the texture, cut and length of your hair. This ensures that you achieve the best possible results.
