What You Need To Know About Savvy Styling For Healthy Hair
Hairstyling is essential to be attractive. What are the tips you need to know about? Here are some that can help your hair look good.
All About Hair Styling
To make your hair fabulous, you are working hard. The steps you take like styling, as well as colouring, must be never working against you to make sure.
Making hair brittle and causing breakage is hair from blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons. Leaving it dry and frizzy, chemical processing like colour and straightening treatments can rob hair of natural moisture.
Helping you get the look you want while warding off damage are these gentler styling techniques.
Treat Wet Hair Tenderly
When it's wet, go easy on your hair. In a towel wrap it. Avoid rubbing it dry. Thereby it causes frizz.
Instead of a brush on wet hair, use a wide-toothed comb. Let it dry a bit before combing if it's straight. Comb when it’s still damp if it's curly.
Keep away from tugging or pulling wet or dry hair. Is it enough for one hundred strokes a day? This comes to be an old wives’ tale. Causing split ends is too much brushing.
Take a Holiday From the Heat
When you can, let your hair air dry. Boosting its natural recovery process is heat-free days.
Patrick Melville, co-owner of the Patrick Melville Salon in New York, says without heat, wash it at night and sleep on it for shiny hair. His list of clients includes Heidi Klum, Halle Berry, and Catherine Zeta-Jones amongst others. He further explains, brush your hair out and put a braid in it after your shower. Never blow-dry the braid.
Turn Down the Heat
Start on the lowest setting and gradually turn it up when using a blow-dryer. You are probably scorching your locks if you see steam. Holding it 6 inches from your hair, keep the dryer moving.
Try working fast. Jonathan Antin, star of the Bravo TV series Blow Out and co-owner of Jonathan & George Salon in Beverly Hills, Calif, is of the opinion that the better it is for your hair and the less damage you create, as the quicker, stronger, and faster you are.
Antin moves on saying divide your hair into sections. So it's not exposed to extra heat, focus on drying each section for about 3 minutes and then clip it and get it out of the way.
Use Hair Tools With Care
Choose one that’s temperature-controlled and limit the time it touches your hair if you use a heated device like a hot comb, curling iron, or blow-dryer.
Leave it in place for just 1 or 2 seconds, as you set your curling iron to low or medium heat.
As Antin says with a flat iron, don’t melt your hair. Run it through your ends only by using it only when your hair is properly dried.
Try wrapping your hair in Velcro rollers for bouncy curls without a curling iron. According to Lisa Lobosco, lead stylist at Ecru New York, having styles that have walked the runway at New York Fashion Week, now comments that you will get a lot of volumes and a smooth wave with no heat by putting the rollers in your hair for about 20 minutes.
Minimize damage by staying on-shade or within three shades of your natural colour if you colour your hair. Opt for a darker colour instead of lighter when in doubt.
The better it is as the more time there is between colouring. Up to 8 to 10 weeks or longer, stretch touch-ups.
To minimise colour damage, condition your hair after every shampoo and shield it from the sun. One with zinc oxide, try a leave-in conditioner.
Try hair serum for more shine. Avoiding your scalp, put a few drops on your hands, and smooth it through your hair. Also boosting shine are styling products made with dimethicone.
Melville says that it can help create a sleek look with smoothing shampoos and conditioners which contain extra conditioners. To curb dryness and frizz, moisturise regularly.
Having natural oils is your scalp. Not the scalp but apply conditioner to the ends of your hair. More than what you need to, don’t shampoo.
To Conclude, Go Free-Style
If you pull it back regularly in a tight ponytail, bun, or cornrows, or wear extensions, your hair can break.
Instead, pull it back loosely. Whereas you can try those hairstyles that put less tension on the roots. Going a long way is a great cut. To keep the shape and style of shorter cuts Melville recommends a trim every 8 weeks, as also every 3 to 4 months for longer hair.
That which is easy on your hair, pick a style. Instead of fighting it with heat and processing, embrace its natural texture and colour. You will enjoy better control and shine by being good to your hair.
