It may seem tough taking care of your own hair, but that isn’t true. The right way to take care of your hair involves knowing what your hair type is and how to keep in healthy looking. Read this article for advice on how to improve your hairdressing routine.
If your hair is fine or thin, it’s best to avoid using any heavy conditioners. The weight of the conditioner acts to flatten and minimize the appearance of the hair. 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.
If your hair looks like it’s pretty dry, you can use a homemade treatment on it. Instead of instantly rinsing your conditioner out, leave it on for about fifteen minutes with the help of a shower cap. The heat will enable your conditioner to penetrate your hair.
If you can possibly avoid it, don’t use a hair dryer when you are drying your hair. Excessive use of heat to style your hair can damage it and make it look very frizzy. Instead, leave your hair wrapped in a towel to dry it. This allows your hair to naturally dry, avoiding a frizzy appearance.
If ocean water creates a look that you like, you can buy products that can mimic the same appearance. Most of these products will contain salt or some other form of sodium. If you would rather make your own, create a solution of 1 cup water to 1 teaspoon salt. If desired, you can also add lavender oil (ten drops) for a pleasant scent and moisturizing effect.
Try using a deep conditioner treatment to give dry hair a treat. To deep condition, thoroughly wet hair and apply an abundant amount of conditioner. Once the conditioner is worked in, wrap your head in a damp, warm towel to contain the heat. You can also use a shower cap or even kitchen plastic wrap. Leave this treatment in your hair for roughly 60 minutes, after which you will wash the treatment out of your hair with a natural shampoo.
Overall, living a healthy lifestyle will keep your hair happy. Avoid stress and harmful activities such as smoking, get enough exercise, drink lots of water, and you will have great looking hair. The lifestyle choices you make will have a big impact on your hair.
