10 Best Hair Tips You’ll Ever Read

10 Best Hair Tips You’ll Ever Read

We all want to have great looking hair. But, no amount of styling, products, coloring, perms, etc. are going to help if your hair isn’t in terrific shape. Even chemically treated hair can be soft, shiny, and luxurious, if you are properly taking care of it. Here are 10 tips that will help you have awesome hair that even complete strangers will want to touch.

1. Brush before Washing

We all lose up to 100 hairs, or more, per day, and when you wash it, that hair goes right down the drain. Protect your drain from clogs by brushing before you wash. This will also get rid of tangles, and open energize your scalp.

2. Condition the Ends Only

You don’t need to condition your whole head. In fact, doing this can cause your hair to look oily. Unless your scalp is very dry, only condition three quarters of your hair, and leave the top quarter free of conditioner.

3. Use Silk Pillowcases

Silk is better for your skin, and it helps to keep moisture in your hair. Cotton pillowcases will suck the moisture out. Satin may cost a bit more, but it is definitely worth it (it feels pretty luxurious too).

4. Massage Your Scalp

If you want to have long, luxurious hair, start massaging your scalp every time you wash your hair. Not only does it feel terrific, it helps to increase the blood flow to your scalp. This will help your hair to grow faster and longer, and make your roots a lot stronger. It also helps to relieve stress and headache pain.

5. Use a Wide Toothed Comb

When combing through wet hair, or getting rid of tangles, use a wide toothed comb. Other combs, and brushes, will break your hair, keeping it from looking great. Keep a wide toothed comb in the shower, and comb through your hair with conditioner in to get rid of tangles.

6. Squeeze Dry Your Hair

Instead of using a towel to dry your hair, squeeze it dry with paper towels. You won’t end up with the frizzies this way, and more water is absorbed than with a regular towel, so your hair dries faster.

7. Use a Split End Mask

Using a home-made mask can help prevent split ends from happening, and keeps your hair looking good and shiny. These masks are easy to make, using ingredients you probably already have around your kitchen. A great mixture is one egg yolk, three tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and one tablespoon of raw hone. Apply to the ends of your hair, sit for an hour or longer, and rinse. Repeat once every two weeks.

8. Filter Your Shower Water

The chemicals found in water, such as chlorine, fluorine compounds, salts, minerals, and even rust, can be very damaging to your hair. You don’t need to upgrade your water system though. Simply buy a shower filter, which you can get at any hardware store.

9. Steam Spiral Curls

Your curling iron is slowly destroying your hair by burning the ends and drying it out. Create spiral curls with steam rollers. You can do your hair as quickly as you would with the iron, but without the damage. An added bonus is that you won’t burn yourself, which often happens with curling irons.

10. Use a Humidifier

No, humidity is not the enemy, even though people with curls may think it is. If the air is dry, your hair is going to dry out, and it isn’t going to look good. Running a humidifier in your home will provide the moisture in the air that your hair needs to stay healthy and look terrific.
