Hair Care: 5 Things You Did Not Know

2Beautiful hair is the desire of most women. Achieving this may be challenging, but there are some simple, little-known things you can do to make this a reality!

  1. Hold Brushing for Soaking Wet Hair

You may think that brushing is always a beneficial way to get smooth, flowing hair. However, brushing wet hair may do more damage than good. Wet hair is more prone to breakage and the act of brushing may cause excess breakage. Wait to brush until your hair is damp, at least. Once hair has dried some, use a wide-tooth comb to work out tangles. If blow-drying your hair, begin by rough drying with your hand and finish with a round brush.

  1. Proper Shampooing

Shampooing your hair may sound easy enough, but there are some things to keep in mind. Make sure that your hair is fully wet before applying the shampoo. Gently massage the suds into your scalp. Since most of the dirt and oil in your hair resides near the scalp, give special attention to the roots. If you use hair product (such as hairspray, hair gel, mousse, etc), be sure to work shampoo into the rest of your hair as well. After shampooing for approximately 30 seconds, rinse your hair thoroughly. At this point, you can also give your hair a quick cold water rinse to help seal the hair and give it a sleek, smooth look.

  1. Timing Hair Product Just Right

Many women use hair product to achieve their desired look. Products such as styling lotion, mousse, straightening serum, and root lifter—to name a few—should sit on your hair for at least 10 minutes before styling. This allows the product to soak in and take full effect.

  1. Blow Dryer Basics

The blow dryer can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It all depends on how you use it. While dryers can add volume, shine and style to your hair do, using it on high heat at close proximity for extended periods of time can do serious damage to your hair. The water in and on your hair can begin to boil which can burn your locks. To avoid split ends and straw-like hair, keep your dryer on a cool temperature setting and hold the dryer several inches away from your head. As added protection, you can also apply a heat protection product before drying.

  1. Diet Considerations

You may assume that the health of your hair comes from the outside in. However, beautiful hair also comes from the inside out. Your diet can play a significant role in the condition of your hair. Make sure your diet is rich in iron and protein. Also, eat foods packed with vitamins-like Vitamin D, biotin, and zinc—regularly. Some foods to seek out are salmon, spinach, blueberries, chicken, and walnuts. A multivitamin may be one good way to ensure you are getting enough of these vitamins and nutrients. These will help promote healthy, strong hair.

Beautiful, healthy hair is within reach with the help of these simple, effective hair care practices. Proper shampooing, drying, brushing, and diet paired with the smart application of product can help you achieve the hair that you want.
