Everyone knows that hair is the ‘crowning glory.’ Many of us battle dull, lifeless hair, despite our dreams of shiny, bouncy tresses. The advice you have found here will help you to have the shiny hair you’ve always dreamed about.
Healthy hair is the result of a healthy body. If you can eat well and exercise regularly, then this type of lifestyle will be well reflected in your head of hair. A balanced diet should consist of vegetables and fruits, whole grains, beneficial fats and lean protein, which helps your hair stay strong and healthy.
If you like to style your hair in a ponytail, avoid placing the ponytail in the same spot on your head every time. Even if you only use soft hair ties covered in fabric, it can cause stress to that part of your hair, and will eventually lead to breakage. If you have to tie up hair for your job, let it down when you are not working.
If you feel that your hair is looking rather dry, here is an at-home conditioning treatment for you to try. After shampooing your hair as normal, wring out the excess water, apply the conditioner of your choice, and cover your hair with a shower cap until the conditioner has a chance to absorb – usually five to ten minutes. This generates heat and allows the conditioner to get deeply into your hair follicles.
Drying your hair with a blow dryer could actually be damaging it. Keep your blow dryer moving constantly so it will not remain in the same spot for too long, and always set the dryer on the cool air setting. Use your fingers to get rid of knots as the hair dries so that it will be easier to brush later.
When drying your hair, make sure that you never pull and tug on your hair. This can make hair frizzy and stretch it out which makes the strands break. Instead of rubbing, pat your hair dry and gently squeeze the moisture out of your hair. Then wrap it in a towel, if you wish. Also, be careful brushing your hair while wet, as this can also cause damage. Instead use a wide-tooth comb.
As this article demonstrates, it is quite easy to achieve the shining tresses that you desire. If you incorporate the tips you’ve learned here into your haircare routine, you will have beautiful hair before you know it. You simply need to put in a little time and effort. Soon, your hair will be the envy of all your friends.
