Hair has always been a special part of yours. Whether it’s a date night or just a casual Friday night you have styled it up to look gorgeous. However if you still think that sometimes it is letting you down, then does it means you have not done enough for your hair?
You have oiled your hair and have put on those nutrition rich masks, what else is left behind in the journey to get beautiful tresses? Well, for the starters, the expensive shampoos and the biweekly hair masks are nothing but the myth or rather the marketing agenda brought to by the global honchos.
Maintaining and caring for your hair lies in the simplistic measures and some changes in your daily lifestyle. Though, often related to the crowning glory and beauty, these dead proteins reflect much about your lifestyle and health condition.
If you are done trying the most conventional methods of taking care of your hair, here I am with some of the simple yet effective tips to make hair better and healthier right from the house of Hollywood.
Silk: Your hair’s BFF
Well, you must have heard a minimum eight hours of sleep is not only good for your health but for your hair too. Here’s another tip, before dozing off for eight hours, let’s get those pillow covers straight. And for straight, I did not mean how you are using the pillow, but what you are using to cover the pillow.
Sleeping on silk pillow can prove to be beneficial. Primarily hair gets damaged while sleeping when it’s rough and all tangled up. Thus, comes silk to the rescue. Silk pillow will give your hair a more slippery surface to rest all night avoiding excess friction. Less tangled and rough hair results in less brushing and repetitive styling.
Silicone: Secret To Protected Hair
If you wonder how the celebs manage to have a level hair, then probably your answer lies with the local drug store. In case, you did not know but, your in-home hair color boxes have the secret. The little tubs of conditioner which comes complimentary with the coloring boxes are a must when that hair needs some emergency treatment.
The conditioners are high in silicone content, leaves a film of protective coating around the hair. Lustrous effect happens naturally creating a super shiny effect. Though, the hair stylists do not recommend this trick daily. You can use it in the time of emergency, (it come handy during special events).
Quick Dry Towel: It Comes In Handy
Styling your hair can be time consuming and if you do not know the right way, it can be messy too. So, why take chance when you have this trick. Wear a quick dry towel wrap as soon as washing your hair. Anything that helps me to reduce heat application on my hair is a plus, so it can be the same for you. For the extra frizzy hair, this product can be the magic band. It quickly manages the mane and also reduces drying time. Voila! You have never seen your hair so manageable while styling and can thank me later for it.
Sweet almond oil: The unknown elixir
Coconut oil is the reigning magical potion for the tired and dried up tresses, but that’s not all to the story. If you do not want to re-wash your hair two days in a row that, is just fine! But, you still need to re-soften it for easy styling. Here’s the trick for that. Add a few drops of almond oil in your water spray bottle and mist it through the hair. This way, the product residue is broken down easily so re-styling becomes more manageable while adding shine and softness. Girls with curly hair can find this as a fresh way to re-style their curls when washing seems unnecessary.
