Your hair is one of the first in a list of many things that people will notice about you, so it’s important to have good hair. Unfortunately, not everyone has good hair, which can lead to a less than stellar first impression, visually anyway. This can be changed with hair care tips, like the ones you will find below.
Use corn starch for oily hair. If you’re one of those people with oily hair, corn starch can really help. Corn starch helps to absorb any oil that might be in your hair. Take a small amount and rub it into oily spots and your hair will look nice and fresh.
If you are a frequent ponytail wearer, don’t place the ponytail on the same spot every time. Even using soft, fabric-covered scrunchies, can cause repeated stress to that area, which will result in eventual breakage. If your job requires you to wear hair back, when you aren’t working, wear it down as much as possible.
If you plan on going swimming you should wet your hair before entering the pool. Most pool water has chlorine in it and it can cause damage to hair. Wetting the hair before going in will ensure that your hair soak up fresh water instead of the chlorine filled water in the pool.
Do you suffer from dandruff? Seek out a shampoo and conditioner with an ingredient called tea tree oil! Tea tree oil is all-natural, and will work to soothe a dry scalp. This helps to prevent dandruff from being formed, and will leave your hair looking, feeling and even, smelling great.
While you should wash your hair often, don’t overdo it. Washing your hair too often, strips it of its natural oils, which gives it shine and volume. For most people, washing their hair a few times a week is enough, unless their hair is especially oily. Washing too often will turn hair dry and brittle.
When choosing a brush to use on your hair, choose one with soft bristles, instead of hard ones. There are brushes available that are made of animal fibers or soft bristles that will be easier on your hair and not cause any type of damage to your beautiful hair!
It is important that you only buy shampoos and conditioners that match your hair type. For example, if you have dry hair, you should purchase shampoos and conditioners made specifically for dry hair. Your hair’s condition will not improve if you do not buy the relevant products to help it.
If you happen to suffer from a flaky scalp, try using this treatment bi-weekly: Start sectioning your hair and do a gentle rubbing on your scalp using a rubbing alcohol-saturated cotton pad. Once the alcohol dries, start brushing your hair. Finish with a thorough rinse using warm water, and be sure not to shampoo.
