Even celebrities have bad hair days, as seen in the tabloids.
Simply said, it seems that having a less-than-glamorous mane is something that is naturally human when the professional stylists are not around. However, you may play a role in winning the war by using these excellent hair care suggestions.
Apply a professional conditioner
Apply a professional conditioner designed for your particular hair type. While you may cut down on the shampoo a little, a top-notch conditioner is essential. In salons, look for products that are made specifically for your hair type. For instance, use a conditioner made for chemically treated hair if you have colored or permed hair. Additionally, avoid using certain shampoo and conditioner mixes.
Pick a style that fits your face
Pick a style that fits your face and body form. When selecting a new hairstyle, people’s biggest error is choosing a style based on popularity rather than how it would best highlight their qualities. Always consider how a new cut will complement or contrast with your facial features and body type before committing to it. Choose a full-bodied cut over a head-hugging doo if your shoulders are wide.
Remember to use sunscreen
Remember to use sunscreen. Wind and sunlight may harm your hair just like they do your skin. Look for finishing products that filter UV rays, such as mousses, gels, and sprays, to fight this.
Stay on schedule
You probably aren’t aware that your hair splits more quickly than it grows. Even if it’s just a micro trim, you should get a trim every six to eight weeks. They are good because a professional hairdresser knows what to leave on the head and what to avoid removing.
Handling of chemicals
Leave the handling of chemicals to experts. The requirement for beauticians to attend school to understand how to handle chemicals and hair treatments is justified. Even while the packaging claims that using these goods is simple, you might still do irreversible harm. Even if your hair doesn’t fall out, you can wind up looking like a clown and having to pay a hairdresser a lot of money to correct your disaster. (Note: Most hairdressers double their usual color processing rates for corrective color.)
Some color for body
Add a little color for body and interest. Each cut requires a touch of color to be truly stunning. Using a color technique, you may give your tresses more volume and appeal regardless of whether your taste is delicate or spectacular. Highlights, lowlights, color all over, gray coverage—whatever it is, it looks beautiful on you.
Perform regular conditioning procedures. Your hair is continuously under attack from the wind, sun, cold, and heat, even if it is quite healthy. Your hair suffers more damage during the summer because it takes in chlorine and other pollutants from your pool.
Purchase a ceramic ion flat iron as opposed to using a standard flat iron with a metal plating to fry your hair. Use one of the negative ion flat irons to straighten your hair and add gloss and hydration. Personally, we only deal with T3 irons.
Pick your styling supplies carefully. Avoid using hair products that cause buildup. If you notice white muck, your product may be covering your hair shaft and is not water-soluble. In addition to the white flakes, build-up results in limpness, breaking, and an inability to curl the hair.
Using a towel to dry your hair
Did you know that using a towel to dry your hair after a shower may result in split ends and static electricity buildup in your hair? Instead of rubbing the towel over your hair back and forth, scrunch it around your hair as you would crackers in soup.
In any case, let’s remember that:
- the appearance of the hair is related to hormones: high levels of estrogen make the hair more beautiful and stronger;
- hair is substantially composed of keratin, a protein rich in amino acids that are found above all in meat, fish and … legumes. So pay attention to nutrition.
- among the minerals essential for hair health, we remember iron, zinc, magnesium and copper;
- and finally vitamins and antioxidants contained in fresh vegetables and fruit and green tea. In fact, antioxidants help to counteract damage from sun exposure.
Instead, the following are to be avoided:
- diets too rich in fiber (eg: bran) because they reduce the absorption of minerals;
- unbalanced diets, low in proteins (not necessarily animal, vegetable proteins perfectly serve the purpose);
- reduced consumption of fruit and vegetables.
These suggestions will all help you look your best every day, even if they won’t make you appear as though you’ve employed a professional hairdresser. Keep in mind that you wear your hair every day while caring for it. Now, isn’t maintaining it in pristine condition worth the time, money, and effort required?
PS: anyway, be careful! Anything that’s good for your hair … that’s good for your hair. And I mean the hair on the legs, the armpits, the forearms and … the groin.
