If your hair is fine or thin, it’s best to avoid using any heavy conditioners. This will make your hair look finer and thinner and weigh it down. To add volume without a greasy look, use mousse conditioners or leave-in conditioners.
Whenever possible, avoid using heated styling tools; this makes it easier to restore and fortify your hair. Blow-dryers and curling irons can really take a toll on your hair, making it difficult or impossible to tame frizz and repair damage. Every now and then, try to get your hair out of the heat!
Eating an unhealthy diet impacts the health of your hair negatively. You need a lot of iron, omega 3 fatty acids, vitamin E and similar nutrients to keep hair healthy. Make sure you take a comprehensive multivitamin if you cannot get enough of these nutritional elements through your diet alone.
Do not use a blow dryer if you do not want to dry your hair out. Styling your hair with heat is damaging and it can cause hair to be frizzy. Keep your hair up in a towel as long as you can, to absorb the maximum amount of moisture. This allows hair to dry without damage, and reduces frizz.
Look for haircare products that have a sunscreen ingredient. Continuous sun exposure can undo all the good you have done for your hair. Protecting your hair from the sun will make it last longer and preserve its color.
There are several products available on the market which give you the beach effect. There are salt sprays available on the market. Should you want to create this look yourself, put one teaspoon of table salt in with approximately a cup of water. Then, add about ten or so drops of the lavender oil and you have created your own ocean in the bottle.
If your hair is dull and lifeless use a shampoo that is suited for ‘clarifying’. Dull hair can be caused by buildup of products over time. You can use a clarifying shampoo if you need to get rid of incessant dirt or oil that is in your hair.
