Many people wish they could change the way their hair looks. The reason for this is that many people simply do not do what it takes to keep their hair healthy. If you feel this way about your hair, don’t worry. You can pick up a lot of valuable hair care information by checking out the following advice.
Avoid heavy conditioners if you have thin or fine hair. Heavy conditioners are just that, heavy; they will weigh your hair down making it appear flat and lifeless. Instead, opt for light conditioners to add volume without the ill effects of heavy conditioners.
Despite popular belief, frequent trims do not cause your hair to grow faster. No matter how much you trim your hair, it grows at a rate of about half an inch each month. You may see more growth in the summer or if you are taking biotin. That’s because of hormones though, not scissors. You can eliminate split ends with trimming though.
Avoid rubbing or otherwise pulling at your hair when you use a towel to dry it. This can damage your hair, causing frizz and breakage. 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. Unless you are using a very wide-toothed comb, wait to brush or comb until your hair is dry.
Try not to use your blow dryer too much. A blow dryer produces harmful, hot air, so let your hair dry out naturally whenever possible. When you simply must use your blow dryer, try to use the coolest setting possible, and move the dryer around the head constantly. If you towel dry your hair before you blow dry it, the hair will dry more quickly.
Try using a deep conditioner treatment to give dry hair a treat. Apply a generous portion of conditioner to your wet hair. Wrap your hair in a warm, damp towel, or even plastic wrap, to trap the heat. Let it set for between a half and one hour, then shampoo your hair to remove the conditioner and rinse well.
When you’re using blow dryers to dry your hair, you need to move it around to avoid damaging one area due to heating it for a long time. This minimizes the risk of damage to your hair due to excessive heat exposure.
You should now know what to do in order to give yourself great looking hair. It’s smart to contemplate something before doing it. So think about what hair care techniques you are going to apply so that you can have great looking hair again.
