Use a spray that protects your hair from heat whenever you are going to use a curling iron or blow dryer. Even though these particular products were made to protect against frizzy hair, all kinds of hair could benefit from them. Sprays like these keep your hair smooth and sleek.
Do not style your hair with heated appliances every day. Overusing your curling iron, flat iron, blow dryer, curler or other products can cause fried, frizzy hair. Allow your hair to air-dry as often as possible, and give your hair a break from heated styling tools. If you must use these tools, apply a heat-protective spray or balm to your hair prior to use.
To get the best looking hair possible, consider using a leave-in conditioner. These conditioners give you the amazing effects that you typically associate with normal conditioner, but the effects last all day long! You’ll find leave-in conditioners at your local drug store or salon, in either, lotion or spray-on form.
Coat your hair with a protective conditioner or specially-made hair wax before using heat-styling implements. Heat can dry out your hair over time, causing breakage and split ends. Some hair product manufacturers make special formulations, created for heat styling use. Typically, you just rub or spray a small amount through your hair, right before styling.
Don’t use salt spray on your hair. While salt spray is great for creating beach waves and minimizing grease on your hair, it is also very damaging to your hair. After all, salt is a drying agent, so it will take all of the moisture out of your hair and leave it dry and brittle.
At the end of a long day, you may see that your hair has less luster and bounce, so utilize a spritzing regime with natural spring water. To do this, spray a little amount of water in your hair as you rub it lightly with your palm, administering it using a circular motion. Getting a hair stylist to texture your hair will give the appearance of added volume.
Your hair needs as much protection from the sun as your skin. Use a hair product that contains sunscreen (or wear a hat) when you are going to spend time outside. This will keep the wind and sun from harming your hair. Your scalp can burn and this protects it. Hair that is colored also fades at a faster rate with sun exposure.
For a natural and healthy hair treat, try honey! Mix equal parts of water and honey in a handy spray bottle and mist your hair occasionally, especially at the tips. Honey nourishes and protects hair very well, without dousing it with all the harsh chemicals that are found in leave-in conditioners and other products.
Thinking about the amount of time you want to spend styling your hair will do wonders for helping you figure out what your best hairstyle is. Knowledge about all the options for your look, will make your decision-making easier. Keep these tips in mind, so that you may have hair you’ll love showing off.
