If regular conditioners leave your hair feeling greasy or limp, consider switching to a lightweight leave-in conditioner. These formulas are available as both, light lotions and sprays, and they tend to be much lighter than the moisture-heavy versions you use in the shower. Look for a leave-in that matches your hair type, such as color-protection sprays or anti-frizz sprays.
Choose a hairstyle that goes well with the shape of your face. Try different styles until you find one that flatters your best features and hides the ones you do not care for. Pay attention to how people with a similar facial shape wear their hair, to get a better idea of what works and what doesn’t!
Make sure to clean out your brushes and combs, and wash them periodically. A good rule of thumb is to clean them with soap and water around once a week. This will minimize the amount of build up that you will incur on your hair follicles and you will have healthier hair.
Letting you hair dry naturally is the best way to avoid dry fly away hair. Simply blot your hair with a fluffy towel after washing. Using a blow dryer can strip your hair of moisture that keeps it looking healthy. If you must use a blow dryer, use a product that protects your hair from the heat.
Be sure to wash your brushes and combs frequently. Any oils, grime, or other substances in your hair are passed to the comb and will be passed back to your hair, when you use them again. Take the time to soak them in warm soapy water and lay them out to dry on a towel.
If you are going to be out in the sun for any amount of time you should wear a hat or scarf that is tied on your hair. If you do not want to do this you should put a leave in conditioner on your hair to protect it from the sun.
Try to limit using hair products close to the roots, in order to avoid getting split ends. Sprays, mouses and gels contain a lot of damaging chemicals and the roots of your hair are more apt to absorb such damage than your delicate ends. Tip your head upside down to fluff and to lift from the roots, for better hold!
If your hair is lacking volume and shine, you may want to try an egg and mayonnaise mixture. Simply mix the two items together and massage it through your hair. Cover your hair with a shower cap or plastic bag for 20 minutes and then, wash it out. Follow this by shampooing and conditioning, as normal.
Remembering that doing whatever makes you comfortable is the most important part, when it comes to your appearance. Instead of putting all of your worth into your appearance, realize that you’re allowed to have a bad hair day. For those days when you want to dress up a little, remember these tips!
