Restrict your use of heat styling tools so that your hair can remain strong. For example, those curling irons, rollers, and other appliances can really damage the hair more than strengthen it. Every once in a while, give your hair a break and lay off the heat!
Forget the myth that frequent trims make your hair grow faster. No matter how much you trim, human hair grows around 1/2 inch a month. Hair growth has nothing to do with stylist’s trims. A simple trim will get rid of split ends, which does give your hair a much better look.
You can damage your hair by blow drying. Try using the cool setting and moving it around constantly to avoid keeping it over one spot too long. When you are drying your hair, use your fingers to remove any knots in your hair. This will prevent damage to your hair during brushing.
It is extremely important that your hair stays moisturized so it won’t become brittle and dry, which can cause your hair to break. The temperature of the water that you use when you shampoo can help. Make it a habit to rinse off any shampoo with cool water. This keeps the moisture intact in the shafts of your hair.
If your hair is dry and brittle, this simple conditioning treatment is a no-brainer. Dampen your hair with a spray bottle and massage in a generous portion of your everyday conditioner. Keep the heat in by wrapping the hair in a towel or in plastic wrap. Leave this treatment in your hair for roughly 60 minutes, after which you will wash the treatment out of your hair with a natural shampoo.
If you use a blow dryer to style your hair, move the blow dryer around continuously so that no one part of your head is exposed to the heat for too long. This will decrease the chances of your hair sustaining any damages from using too much heat.
Heat styling tools, such as curling irons and straighteners can dry and damage hair. Protect your hair by using a styling product before using heated hair appliances. These serums will coat your hair and protect it from the damage that heat can cause.
Combing and brushing your hair will stimulate hair growth by breaking up any loose skin on the scalp. Furthermore, it works to break apart clogged pores that can halt the growth of new hair. Brush your hair with 100 stokes every day to stimulate your scalp.
You can avoid breakage by waiting to come your hair when it is dry. If you choose a brush, look for one with natural, soft bristles. If a comb is preferred, you will have less tangles and breakage if you choose one with wide teeth and plenty of space for the hair to flow through naturally. Detangle your hair, starting at the bottom and then go higher towards the scalp.
If you hair starts to flatten out near the day’s end, try using a little bit of spring water. Just put a little water and rub it on your hair to help your hair out. This will produce volume.
You should always protect the hair from sun, like you do the skin. When you are outside, always try to wear sport hats or use a hair spray that has a sunscreen so your hair does not become damaged. As an added benefit you will be protecting your scalp from the damage caused by the sun. If your hair has been color-treated, it fades quicker in the sun.
