Having healthy hair may seem like a labor-intensive process, but in actuality, it’s really simple. Good hairdressing involves understanding your hair’s unique qualities, and which treatments maximize its beauty and manageability. In the following paragraphs, you’ll find suggestions that will help you to keep your hair in tip-top shape.
A healthy body is more likely to produce healthy hair. If you drink a lot of water and eat plenty of healthy foods, your hair will become healthier as a result. Foods to include in your hair-healthy diet include fruits, vegetables, unsaturated fats, proteins and whole grains.
If you enjoy wearing your hair in one ponytail, don’t put the ponytail in one spot every time. Even using soft, fabric-covered scrunchies, can cause repeated stress to that area, which will result in eventual breakage. Even if you have to wear your hair up at work, let it down whenever possible to give it a break from the constant stress.
You’ll want to eschew heavy conditioning products if your hair is particularly delicate or fine. They will only wear down your hair making it look finer and thinner. The best conditioners that avoid this problem are mouse-like conditioners and sprayed leave-in conditioners.
Conditioning treatments are not necessary for thin or fine hair. They will just weight your hair down, making it look thinner. Conditioners that are like mousse or leave-in conditioners will work the best when you want to have more volume and not weigh your hair down.
If you value your hair, don’t use a blow dryer. Styling with heat can really damage your hair and leave it frizzy and unruly. Keep your hair up in a towel as long as you can, to absorb the maximum amount of moisture. This will make your hair dry naturally, leaving you with minimal frizz.
Your hair does not grow faster because you have had a trim. Human hair grows around one half-inch each month, no matter how many times you trim it. Your hair may grow a little faster during the summer months or if you use biotin supplements. The main driver of hair growth is hormones; your stylist has nothing to do with it. Trims can help with appearance, as they remove split ends.
When drying your hair with a blow dryer, continuously wave the blow dryer back and forth so the hot air it produces doesn’t blow on one section of your hair too long. This movement decreases the chance your hair will sustain damage from too much heat.
Now that you have read this article, it should be obvious that proper hair care doesn’t require lots of time, money, and products. Hopefully you are inspired to try incorporating a few into your haircare routine. The more you take care of your hair, the healthier and more attractive it’ll be, so don’t put it off any longer.
