Ok, now let’s get down to business!
In life, there are very few quick fixes, and even less so with hair, which can be notoriously prone to damage and breakage. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to get your hair looking and feeling better right away. Check out the following easy solution.
1. Throw in the towel
Towels are great for absorbing moisture, but they can be a little too effective when it comes to delicate strands. Instead of the towel you use on your body, wrap your hair up in an old t-shirt. It will still soak up excess moisture, but it won’t leave your hair dehydrated.
2. Get boared
Boar bristle brushes may seem old-fashioned, but they’re a gentle solution for keeping hair in check. They make hair look shinier because they help evenly distribute oil from root to tip, and they’re especially wonderful for damaged strands that need a milder touch.
3. Go to the plait
Braiding isn’t just fashionable, it’s also an unexpected way to protect your hair while sleeping. Because of the interweaving, there’s less pressure on individual strands, which can result in less breakage — and tangling, too.
4. Dry out
Hair is more vulnerable to breakage when it’s wet, especially if it’s not detangled with a wide-tooth comb. To prevent damage while styling, either let your hair dry naturally and then brush or flat iron it, or finger dry it with a blow dryer and then use your brush to shape it once most of the moisture is out.
- Smooth things under
- Most of us sleep on cotton pillowcases, but they absorb moisture from hair and skin, and the texture can also lead to more knots. For better hair every time you wake up, silk or satin pillowcases are the way to go. They’re not nearly as absorbent, and their smooth surfaces keep hair tangle-free.
- Get enough sleep, this is very important!!!!
Before entering a pool, wet your hair so your hair will soak up the initial water instead of the chlorinated water.
When swimming, where a cap to protect your hair from chlorinated water, if you choose not to wear a cap make sure you shampoo and condition your hair right after you are done swimming.
Don’t leave the blowdryer in one spot for more than a few seconds, keep it moving and at a good distance away from your hair.
Gently use your fingers or a pick to untangle any knots while your hair is drying.
Hair is most fragile when it is wet so avoid brushing or combing when it’s wet, or else it will cause breakage. Wait until your hair is almost completely dry before brushing it.
Use brushes/combs with widely spaced bristles/teeth and smooth tips. Sharp tooth combs can damage your hair, cause split ends, and scratch your scalp.
To keep your brushes and combs clean, wash them weekly using soap or shampoo.
Comb your hair to remove any tangles before brushing it.
Begin by combing your hair gently at the ends to get any tangles out and work your way up to the base of your hair.
Shampooing and Conditioning
Buy shampoos & conditioners that match your hair type. Trial and error is the best way to find out what specific hair product is best for your hair.
