Good hairdressing is one of the most powerful tools you can use to control the way you look and the impression you make. Just a little tweak to your color or cut can make a huge difference in your appearance and your confidence. Remember these guidelines when caring for your hair to create a look that describes you.
If you like to style your hair in a ponytail, avoid placing the ponytail in the same spot on your head every time. They do make soft scrunchies that minimize damage, but if you use the same hair to form the ponytail each time, it will break even with this precaution. If tying your hair back is a work requirement, avoid tying your hair back when you are not working.
Be sure to always be gentle with your hair when you use a towel to dry it. This can make hair frizzy and stretch it out which makes the strands break. Instead, pat, blot or gently squeeze excess moisture from your hair, or wrap it loosely in a towel. You should also avoid brushing or combing it while it’s wet, unless you use a wide-toothed comb.
If you use a blow dryer to style your hair, move the blow dryer around continuously so that no one part of your head is exposed to the heat for too long. This can reduce the amount of damage that heat can cause.
Spritzing your hair with spring water is a good thing to do when your hair becomes flat. Just spray your hair with a bit of spring water and lightly rub the water over the surface of your hair in a gentle circular motion. That gives volume to your hair.
Always remove as much water as possible with a towel so that you do not allow the heat from a hair dryer to harm your hair. Blow dryer heat is detrimental to hair. It removes moisture and natural oils from the hair shafts, leaving it dull and lifeless. Minimize the amount of blow drying you have to do by getting as much water out of your hair with a towel first.
