Not everyone has what you call the perfect hair. Hair comes in different forms and colors: some have naturally curly hair, while some hair looks wavy; some are blonde-haired, while some have the color of jet-black. So if you do not consider yours as perfect for some reason, it is okay; just make sure that you do not have hair damage. If your hair is excessively frizzy, dry and hard to manage, maybe it is time to acknowledge that your hair is damaged. This can happen because of a lot of factors: methods of styling, pollution, overexposure to the sun and cold weather. Sometimes, just avoiding the root of the problem can resolve the damage, but most of the time you are required to use products that treat it and prevent it from coming back.
There is a whole aisle in the supermarket and a lot of products to choose from in the drugstore that can treat and repair damaged hair. These claims may not be all true, so you may want to be careful when buying and using hair products. For example, split-ends can not be repaired by using a treatment shampoo or hair product that claim to do so, because simply having a trim can solve your problem. These hair products can provide nutrients to replenish the hair strands, but until you cut off the damaged parts and split-ends, you will not be able to get rid of them at all.
Also, certain styling techniques can cause hair damage and split-ends, so you should not style your hair frequently. If you have experienced having damaged hair, then you probably do not want to experience it on a daily basis. It is important to remember that there are a number of ways to avoid hair damage. Below here is a list of some tips you may want to try:
If possible, avoid overdoing certain hairstyling methods such as the use of flat irons and curling irons. Heat damage can result into frequent use of such appliances, and cause your hair to have split-ends and become brittle. Using these styling methods is encrypted for at most twice a week. Remember to use a quality serum to protect your hair from the intense heat. Also, blow drying your hair can expose it to heat damage. As much as possible, let your hair dry naturally or refrain from using heat to dry your hair.
A moisturizing conditioner must be a staple in your bath products so that your hair does not become too dry. Be sure to apply a condition after using shampoo once a week, so you can retain whatever moisture that is stripped off your hair after shampooing. Afterwards, comb your hair while it is still wet. Refrain from using a brush. If a comb is not available at the moment, wait until your hair is dry before brushing it.
Dying your hair can be fun to do, especially when the color compliments your skin. However, avoid dimming your hair in two extremely different colors too often-like dye your brown hair jet-black, then after a few months, bleaching it blonde. If you are changing your hair color, do it subtly and in gradients. For example, color your black hair into dark brown first, before going into light brown to dark blonde, and then finally bleach it blonde.
Since the hair is considered to be a woman's crown of glory, you have to care for it as much as possible.
