Six Simple Tips To Gorgeous, Silky Hair

Six Simple Tips To Gorgeous, Silky Hair

Nothing looks more beautiful than a head of full, sleek, and shiny hair. All women want their hair to fall like liquid silk, and while the “results” seen in hair-care commercials may be a bit too perfect to be real, there are numerous things you can do to improve the health and beauty of the hair you have. Here we’ll talk about six things you can do to keep your hair looking and feeling its best.

1. First, we have to help you avoid actually damaging it. The first thing you need to avoid is using a brush on it while it is still wet. When it’s wet, it isn’t as strong as when it is dry, and a brush is too rough for it to handle, and will only cause damage that will show up later. When detangling your wet hair, stick with a nice, wide-tooth comb – this is much easier on your hair. Also use a good leave-in conditioner, to help make it a little more durable.

2. Everyone knows that using a blow dryer on your hair is a great way to damage it. Unfortunately though, the ease and convenience it brings not only time-wise, but for styling makes it a necessity to have. To minimize the damage it does though, use the “cool” setting, and make sure not to dry your hair completely. Leave a little bit of moisture in your lovely locks.

3. Keeping your hair shiny is key to keeping it looking healthy and beautiful. There are a lot of things that dull your hair throughout the week, like product build up and environmental stress, making your hair much duller than it naturally is. Once every week, using an apple cider vinegar rinse will help to strip your hair of the grime and build up and keep it looking shiny. Use about one or two tablespoons diluted in about four cups of water. This is a great, gentle, and natural way to help keep build up from dulling your hair. And as a side note, your hair won’t smell like vinegar once dry.

4. Contrary to what a lot of products say, there is no way to seal or fix split ends. If you notice any split ends on your hair, go in and get them trimmed off. Keeping split ends can result in the split gradually moving up the hair shaft, making your hair look and feel very damaged. Even if you’re growing your hair out, it’s a good idea to go in and get your ends trimmed every so often to keep it looking its best.

5. Moisturizing is a good way to keep your hair healthy and vibrant, and fortunately, it’s a very simple, enjoyable process. Homemade moisturizing masks do a very good job, and they can be made from ingredients that can be found in your very own kitchen. They can be a lot of fun to make and apply, so go do a search some recipes, and select the one that’s perfect for your hair needs.

6. Hair care is not just on the outside. The healthier you are, the healthier your hair tends to be as well, and fortunately there are some great vitamins you can add to your diet that will enhance the quality and health of your hair. Vitamins A and C have antioxidants that are very beneficial to the health of your hair, and vitamin E helps to enhance circulation around your scalp. Vitamin B6 can help to prevent hair loss and to create melanin, which will aid in keeping your hair color richer and more vibrant. Add these to your diet, and you’re sure to have some beautiful hair.

Keeping your hair healthy is key to enhancing its beauty and feel. No matter what hair color, length, or type, your hair will always look better when it’s well taken care of. Fortunately, there are a lot of little things we can do to help take better care of our hair and keep it looking shiny and beautiful. It doesn’t take a lot of time or effort, but by following these steps your beautiful hair is sure to boost your confidence and get plenty of compliments!

  1. Air drying is the best way to manage your follicles rather than use blow dryer. Your skin is sensitive to any chemical or any external agent, you need to ensure that it does not come in contact with your skin.
