Most of us are very hard on our hair, which can lead to dry, damaged, overprocessed and overstyled hair. It can seem that having healthy hair is impossible but that isn’t true. There are things you can do to be sure you have healthy hair.
Your hair needs special care. Most of us spend more time thinking about how we want it to look than we do how it needs to be cared for. The truth is that healthy hair does look good. So how do you attain healthy hair? By following these easy tips.
Don’t wash your hair every day. Washing your hair involves a lot of wear and tear on it and strips it of its natural oils. Try to wash every other day. If your hair is thick or curly you may be able to go longer.
Give your hair the day off. When you can, have days when you don’t do anything to your hair. Comb it and let it be. All the heat styling we do is very damaging to our hair. If you have a lazy day at home, let your hair rest. If you follow this often enough, say once a week or so, it will thank you for the time off by beginning to look like the healthy hair you want. It’s amazing what one day of rest for your hair will do.
Choose the right products for your hair. Be sure you are using the right shampoos and conditioners. It doesn’t have to be an overly expensive brand but be sure it is the right type for your hair.
Deep condition your hair. While you should use a conditioner every day, your hair needs some tlc every once in a while and a deep conditioner is just the medicine it is craving. Aim to deep condition once a week.
If you follow these tips, you will soon see the healthy hair you have always dreamed of.
