Avoid products that are not formulated for your specific hair type. Various hair care products exist on the market, and within those are variations for each type of hair, whether oily, dry, sun-damaged or even, colored. Making the wrong decision in products can have negative effects on your hair and make your existing issues worse.
Hair is very fragile when it is wet. Avoid combing or brushing your hair when it is wet. It will more easily break and stretch out when wet and you try to brush it. At the very least wait until it is damp to brush your hair out, this minimizes damage.
Check the labels on your hair care products. Make sure the products are right for your hair type. Nearly all hair care products are labeled specifically for dry, medium or oily hair. Using the wrong product can dry out your hair or leave it looking greasy. The labels are there for a reason.
Reduce the amount of heat you use on your hair. Hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons can all do significant damage to your hair. Your hair and your skin aren’t that different, and a product that would damage your skin will probably also damage your hair. Use these products less often or on a lower setting when possible.
While it is practical to use a blow dryer, you should limit the amount of time that you exposure your hair to the heat that is generated from them. Always towel dry your hair as much as possible so that you will spend less time exposing it to so much heat.
Use a hair serum to turn frizzy hair into hair that shines. There are many serums that have been specifically designed for whatever type of hair you may have. These serums can give your hair the sleekness and body that you are looking for. Check out your local drugstore or salong to see what they have in stock.
Be sure to select a hair style that works with your face shape. A hair cut may look fantastic on your friend or a celebrity, but that doesn’t mean it’ll flatter you. Find a hair stylist you can work with, and come up with a hair cut that will make your features shine.
When washing your hair, you should start by rinsing it with water to get most of the impurities out. Then, gently massage the shampoo into your scalp and in the hair. Take your time and make sure all your hair is covered with shampoo. Rinse until all the shampoo is gone.
Follow the hair care directions on the box after coloring your hair, especially when it comes to the shampooing process. When your hair has had color applied, the cuticle requires time to reseal otherwise the color will quickly fade. Be sure to try to not even let the hair get wet during this duration. Being patient will pay dividends later.
Incorporate texture into your hairstyle. Texture cuts down on styling time, helping you to get the look you want with less effort. There are several different ways that texture can be achieved, so talk to your stylist about ideas like a perm or texturized cut. You will find the correct cut will result in fuller body for your hair, as well as varied styling options.
Hair products that you use to make your hair look nice can be doing more damage than you think. As you choose your products, avoid the ones that contain any alcohol. The alcohol will dry your hair out quickly. These products could also dry out your scalp, so avoid any contact with the scalp.
Do not believe the old advice about cutting your hair to encourage it to grow faster. Biologically, this is impossible. A trim can do wonders for the appearance of your hair, however, especially if the ends are split, dry or heavily damaged. For longer, healthier locks, treat your hair well and be patient as it grows.
