Want shiny, luscious locks? Here are a few tips to help restore your hair’s natural beauty and prevent future damage.
Avoid Excessive Shampooing
Our scalp produces natural oils which are distributed to the ends of the shafts during brushing. These oils keep hair healthy and shiny looking. Excessive shampooing strips hair of its natural oils and dries it out. Avoid daily shampooing and use dry shampoo between washings in order to keep your hair smelling fresh and to absorb excess oil. Dry shampoos generally come in powder or aerosol form and is generally applied at the roots.
Nourish With Moisturizing Oils
If your hair is dry or damaged you may want to use a natural oil like argan oil on damp hair after shampooing in order to restore your hair’s health. Apply the oil towards the ends where hair tends to carry the most damage. Babassu oil is a good choice for those with thin hair and avocado oil is effective for those with thin hair.
Pick The Right Hair Dryer
Picking the right hair dryer is imperative in order to style hair effectively and safely. According to Shop Hair Dryers, you’ll need a hair dryer with at least 1500 watts if you want to straighten thick and coarse hair. Pick a hair dryer with tourmaline technology for shiny, smooth locks. If you have fragile hair, pick a dryer with ionic features which work to dry hair from the inside out in order to prevent heat damage.
Use A Microfiber Towel To Dry Hair
A microfiber towel absorbs more water than a traditional cotton towel. Getting rid of excess water prior reduce drying time and the possibility of heat damage. Microfiber towels are also more gentle on the hair and less likely to cause tangles and damage.
