Hairdressing 101: Everything You Need To Know

Healthy hair is difficult to obtain, yet everyone still wants it. To make things more difficult, lots of myths are out there about how to properly manage your hair. Therefore, it’s hard to know the methods that will work. The following is hair care advice that will allow you get the best hair possible.

To keep your hair healthy and free from damage, avoid brushing it while it is wet. Wet hair is softer and more prone to breaking. To prevent damage, you can brush your hair prior to showering, or let it dry for a little while and then comb it.

Heavy conditioners are not meant for fine, thin hair. This is only going to make the hair appear to be fine and thin. Conditioners that are similar to mousse or light spray-able, leave-in conditioners are great for adding volume without making your hair look greasy or heavy.

Do not use a blow dryer if you do not want to dry your hair out. If you heat style your hair, it can start looking frizzy and damage your hair as well. Instead, try wrapping your hair up using a towel for a while. Your hair will then dry the natural way and it will not be frizzy.

The myth that getting your hair trimmed regularly makes it grow faster is false. It doesn’t matter how much you cut it, hair grows at about half an inch a month. You may see more growth in the summer or if you are taking biotin. That’s because of hormones though, not scissors. Occasional trims can remove split ends, however, leaving your hair looking much healthier.

When you get out of the ocean, if you like your hair after you’ve gotten out of the water, there are plenty of products which mimic the effects of saltwater. Seek out sprays that are called “salt spray” or another similar name. Should you want to create this look yourself, put one teaspoon of table salt in with approximately a cup of water. Then, add about 10 lavender oil drops and you now have the mix that you need.

Healthy, lustrous, voluminous hair is desired by virtually everyone on the planet. Using the powerful advice in the above article will help you achieve the beautiful hair you deserve. So, what’s the hold up?
