Everyone wants to have healthy, shiny hair, but not everyone is well versed in proper hair care. If your hair has been looking dull, flat or neglected, it’s time to give it a little extra TLC and breathe new life back into it. Here’s how:
Overstyling your hair, especially with heating tools like blow dryers and flat irons, can very quickly cause your hair to look dull and become dry, brittle, and prone to breakage. When styling your hair, proper prep is key. Make sure to protect your hair before using a blow dryer or flat iron by applying a heat protectant. Another way to keep your hair protected when styling is by using hair extensions. High-quality hair extensions like those by True Glory Hair give you the freedom to experiment with many different hairstyles without causing as much stress to your natural hair.
With hair extensions, you can instantly fake long, thick hair, even if you’re still growing out your hair, or if you have naturally fine, thin hair. The key to buying good hair extensions is to look for ones made from real hair so you get the right look, feel, and movement. True Glory Hair offers a wide range of Indian and Brazilian hair extensions made from real virgin hair that come in a variety of styles from straight to wavy and curly.
Don’t Shampoo Every Day
Shampooing is necessary to keep your scalp and tresses clean and fresh, but shampooing daily can quickly dry out your hair and cause dandruff or split ends. Stick to shampooing every other day or once every two days if your hair is dry or very textured.
If you can’t stand the thought of not cleaning your hair every day, consider using dry shampoo on the days you skip your regular liquid shampoo. This will keep your hair fresh and grease-free without drying out your scalp or strands.
Regularly Condition Your Hair
If shampoo is essential to keeping your scalp clean, then conditioner is essential to keeping your hair strands healthy. Conditioner restores moisture to your hair and gives it a protective coating, sealing in that moisture.
When conditioning your hair, work the product gently through your damp strands while in the shower, taking care not to get it on your scalp to avoid weighing down your hair. Leave-in conditioners are also a great way to keep your hair well moisturized and smooth.
Dry Your Hair Properly
Vigorously rubbing your hair dry with a coarse towel can cause damage and frizz. The best way to dry your hair after washing it is by gently squeezing any excess water out, then running a leave-in conditioner or natural oil through it using your fingers while it’s still damp.
Let it air dry until it’s about 80% dry, then finish off with a blow dryer on the lowest setting and holding it a good distance away from your hair. The result will be healthy, frizz-free hair.
Get it Trimmed Regularly
If you can’t even remember the last time you had your hair cut, then it’s been too long. Getting your hair trimmed regularly not only keeps your hairstyle in shape, but it also prevents split ends which could eventually lead to hair fall and breakage. If going to the salon every few months is a luxury, you can easily learn how to properly trim and maintain your hair yourself.
Follow these simple, easy tips, and you’ll soon have healthy, bouncy, shiny hair in no time.
