Simple and easy-to-follow tips for keeping your hair healthy and beautiful
There is certain care that if adopted as a habit will keep the hair looking healthy and much more beautiful regardless of the type of hair you have. We've selected ten suggestions to help you taking care of your hair as it deserves:
- Taking care of your hair when washing
To make your hair look beautiful and well cared for, it is important to use only products intended for that type of hair. There are specific shampoo and conditioner lines for curly, smooth, oily, dry, dyed, chemically treated hair, among others.
Do not wash your hair in excessively hot water and avoid washing it every day. Always remove all shampoo and conditioner from it by finishing washing and moisturizing it. Always prefer cold water as it helps to close the cuticles and avoid that horrible aspect of peeling and creepy hair.
- Dry your hair without ruining it
Before you dry your hair, use a thermo active product to protect your hair from the heat damage of the dryer and the flat iron. Avoid drying your hair with the hair dryer too close to the root, always leave it 15cm off your head. Use the flat iron only if it is extremely necessary and try not to leave it too long in the hair.
- Cut your hair regularly
To keep your hair always strong and healthy and avoid the appearance of the dreaded double ends cut your hair at least every three months. Choose a cut that values your face, after all the hair is his "frame" and deserves every whim.
- Hydrate your hair
It is necessary to hydrate every 15 days to ensure the health and brightness of the threads. Hydrations can be made at home or in the salon, with the right products for your hair type. Who prefers, can make a homemade mask to moisturize the hair.
Wash your hair thoroughly with an anti-waste shampoo and remove the entire product. After washing it, apply the mask only on hair length, massage and wait 15 minutes. Remove the product completely from the hair and be ready to dry or pack it as you wish.
- Protect the wires from the sun
The hairs suffer a lot when exposed to the sun, they get very dry. That is why it is always important to always protect them with a hat when going to the beach and in any situation where your head will be exposed to the sun for a long time. In addition, when the scalp suffers from the action of the sun, the dandruff appears leaving the hair looking dirty and oily. To make them even more safe against UV rays, use a sunscreen for hair.
- Comb gently
Be very careful and patient when brushing or combing your hair. If they get embarrassed easily, lightly fasten them with elastic when going out in the wind and when sleeping. When untangling use a comb with wide bristles and never a brush. Comb gently so as not to break the strings, but gradually untangle.
- Escape the frizz
For your hair to always be tidy, looking like commercial shampoo hair, it is recommended to use a defroster after drying. In this way, the creepy hairs go down and the hair looks better.
- Feed yourself well
Food directly influences the beauty not only of the hair but also of the skin and nails. The most indicated foods to leave healthy hair are those rich in iron, copper, zinc, minerals, vitamin B12, biotin, proteins and iodine. What should be avoided includes canned, refined and artificial foods.
- Drink liquids
Water is responsible for moisturizing the skin and hair, so it is essential to always drink plenty of water and juices. In this way your hair acquires natural hydration that comes from your body and helps to make your hair even more soft and shiny.
- Avoid wetting your hair in pool water.
Swimming pool water usually has large amounts of chlorine and other substances that dry and weaken the wires, so if you go to the pool and they get wet, wash them immediately and hydrate them so your wires are not damaged by chlorine. Nothing to leave chlorinated water in the hair for hours and hours.
