If you have dry hair, try this at-home treatment option for great results. When your hair has been washed and you have somewhat dried it, add conditioner and a shower cap onto it for several minutes. The heat that is created will force the conditioner to go down deep into your hair.
Every time you use heat on your hair you are damaging it, and this goes for blow drying it. To minimize the harmful heat, use the lowest-temperature setting. Do not let the dryer linger on a particular area; keep it constantly moving. Knots should be untangled with your finger during the drying process, as this helps to avoid harm to your hair while brushing later on.
If you like your hair to look the way it looks after a swim in the ocean, you can get products that replicate salty ocean effects. Choose styling products that contain phrases like “salt spray” or “ocean water”. Try putting together a teaspoon of salt and one cup of water for your own mixture. Add ten drops or so of lavender oil, and you have bottled ocean water.
A satin pillowcase can be used if you want to protect your curly hair at night. Unlike cotton pillowcases, satin ones do not sap your hair of its natural moisture and oils. Satin pillowcases protect your hair and allows you to wake with beautiful curls. Satin scarfs and bonnets work too.
Avoid shampooing your hair until two days after you get it dyed. When your hair has had color applied, the cuticle requires time to reseal otherwise the color will quickly fade. Even a little bit of dampness can open your hair’s cuticle during the 48-hour period. By waiting a mere 48 hours you will have beautiful healthy hair.
Make texture part of the style of your hair. Texture cuts down on styling time, helping you to get the look you want with less effort. Texture is added to hair via style, cut or choosing to get a perm. Your hair will naturally be fuller, and you will be able to experiment with many types of styles and looks.
Regardless of your hair type or texture, there is a style out there for you! Spend a little time learning about the different styling options available to you. Remember these guidelines as you develop your optimal hair care routine.
