Hair is never just hair. It is much more than that, our ornament, a part of our identity, at least visual one. And, since it matters that much to us, why shouldn’t we take care of it to look nurtured and healthy? We bring you 5 tricks for gorgeous hair.
#1 Hair mask
Once a week use hair mask. Depending on the type of your hair, make your own, homemade mask which will give it exactly what she needs. For instance, if you have dry hair, your hair mask needs to moisturize your hair before anything else. Natural homemade hair masks are the best, and what is more, it’s very likely you already have all ingredients you need at home.
Trimming hair doesn’t have very much sense if you’re dying to grow long hair, right? Unfortunately, no matter how much you try, there is no alternative to a haircut. Trim your hair every three months to eliminate all split ends in time and also to avoid drastic cuts later. Also, when hair is healthy with no split ends, all hair care products can reach the entire hair so it will be much healthier.
#3 A hat protects head
…but not your hair. You are probably familiar with hat hair – your hair is all messed up with not a trace of the look you were going for. There is a simple solution. Part your hair in the opposite direction than you usually do. When you take off a hat and flip your part to the “usual” part you’ll get wonderfully voluminous hair. An alternative solution to this one could be some hair friendly hat style such as braids or buns, only make sure to wrap your hair tightly without rubber.
#4 Use a conditioner before shampoo
Reverse the order of washing craze. Apply a conditioner first. Your hair will be more nurtured and manageable. By applying conditioner prior to shampoo you’ll prevent flat hair with no volume.
#5 Cold water rinse
Use a cooler final rinse when washing hair. Final rinsing with cold water will help remove all impurities and make your hair shinier adding volume since cold water it boosts scalp circulation.
However, sometimes give your hair some rest. Don’t wash your hair every day because the more frequently you wash it, the more sebum it will produce and you’ll end up doing yourself more harm than good. It is enough to wash your hair every 2 – 3 days, and if you have dry hair, hair stylists recommend washing even less often, once to mostly twice a week. Furthermore, hairstyle such as tight braids or ponytail is not hair friendly and can damage your hair making it brittle and even bring to hair loss.
