Managing your hair is not as difficult as you may think. Good hair care requires knowing what your hair type is and the best way to maintain its health. Read on for some tips about how to take better care of your hair.
If your conditioner doesn’t keep your hair as soft as it should, consider using a leave-in conditioner as well. A good leave-in conditioner can be applied right out of the shower, and will give your hair the moisture it craves. You may also want to try a deep conditioning treatment.
If you like to style your hair in a ponytail, avoid placing the ponytail in the same spot on your head every time. Even soft, fabric hair scrunchies can cause hair breakage if they are placed in the same part of your hair day after day. Wear your down while you sleep, or anytime you don’t need to wear a ponytail, to help avoid damage from hair accessories.
Avoid using heavy conditioners if your hair is fine or thin. They will only serve to weigh the hair down and make it appear thinner and finer. The best types of conditioners to use are the mousse or spray-on ones.
If your hair looks dry, try this at-home conditioner. Wash your hair and gently blot out any excess moisture, then apply a conditioner and put a plastic shower cap on for several minutes. The conditioner will penetrate the hair shaft as the heat from your scalp builds up under the shower cap.
As you can probably see, giving your hair some TLC is not as hard as some people make it out to be. With any luck, a few of the ideas in this piece have piqued your interest enough for you to give them a shot. If you care for your hair properly, you will see yourself having that beautiful and healthy head of hair.
