Many of us wish to take good care of our hair but do not really know how. This is a great place to start if you are looking for ways to improve the condition and style of your hair. Keep reading to know how to help the hair and to help other people, too!
Stay away from using a blow dryer when drying hair. Excessive use of heat to style your hair can damage it and make it look very frizzy. Instead, towel dry hair whenever possible. This lets your hair dry naturally, and keeps the frizz at bay.
Products containing sunscreen can help prevent sun damage. Continuous sun exposure can undo all the good you have done for your hair. Protecting your hair from the sun will make it last longer and preserve its color.
Don’t rub or tug hair in a towel when you’re drying it. This causes your hair to frizz, and it stretches the strands of hair, causing them to potentially break. Patting or blotting your hair will allow you to dry your hair without damage. Unless you actually use a wide-toothed comb, do not brush or comb your hair while it is wet.
Do not blow dry your hair for too long. Hot air from a blow dryer can really damage your hair, so try to let it dry naturally whenever possible. If you must blow-dry your hair, keep the hair dryer on a cool setting and do not keep the dryer in the same spot for very long. In order to minimize the amount of time you need to use the blow dryer, towel dry your hair first.
Rather than using conditioner and rinsing it out quickly, take some time to use it in a way that conditions your hair even further. Conditioner will need to be applied while your hair’s wet; also, you will need to apply a healthy amount of conditioner to the scalp. Once the conditioner is worked in, wrap your head in a damp, warm towel to contain the heat. You can also use a shower cap or even kitchen plastic wrap. Let it set for between a half and one hour, then shampoo your hair to remove the conditioner and rinse well.
Everyone should learn the right way to take care of their hair. Fortunately, everyone can use some hair care tips. All people have hair, and most wish to be able to manage it well. Let others know what you have discovered, and hopefully they will pass on their knowledge as well.
