Everyone has lots of reasons why they don’t take better care of their hair. Often, people think it’ll be complicated or expensive to engage in hair care. However, it doesn’t have to be. Read on to learn how to take care of your hair without getting frustrated or ruining your budget.
It is okay to use styling products on your hair as long as you refrain from using them every day of the week. Use then every so often and make sure that they do not contain alcohol, which will only serve to damage hair and make it dry and brittle.
If you constantly wear a ponytail, you shouldn’t tie the ponytail at the same spot every time. Even soft, fabric hair scrunchies can cause hair breakage if they are placed in the same part of your hair day after day. Wear your down while you sleep, or anytime you don’t need to wear a ponytail, to help avoid damage from hair accessories.
A handy tip to leave you with hair that contains no knots is to comb the conditioner through your hair with a wide-toothed comb when you are applying your conditioning treatment. This will ensure the product is spread through the hair evenly, while removing any tangles you may have at the same time.
Don’t think that the myth that trimming your hair to make it grow faster is true. Human hair grows around one half-inch each month, no matter how many times you trim it. Hair can grow at a bit more quickly during the summer season, or if you use certain supplements. Getting your hair trimmed in a timely fashion keep split ends and breakage at bay, which is what causes some people to incorrectly think trims affect hair growth.
If you are looking to avoid breaking your delicate tresses, be sure to protect them when you sleep at night. Silk pillowcases are excellent for preserving hair integrity. Otherwise, you can take the time to either wrap your hair in a silk scarf, or loosely tie your hair into a low ponytail before bed.
If you are going to condition your hair make sure you do it directly after shampooing it. This will make sure you get the most out of your conditioning and it will be softer and more managable than if you just shampooed it. You will have a more beautiful head of hair.
Switch to a satin pillowcase to protect your curls at night. Regular pillowcases made of cotton absorb oils in your hair and can cause hair to get dry. Satin pillowcases protect the hair allowing you to wake up with the same curls you went to sleep with. You may also sleep in a satin scarf or bonnet.
