Have you ever stopped to notice how you go about your daily hair care routine? How habits you have formed can affect the overall health and look of your hair? A simple change can save you substantial time and money running to the hairdresser, as well as improve how your hair feels and looks.
Do you wash your hair in the morning and then have to rough dry your hair quickly with a blow dryer in order to get to work on time looking decent? That simple action is damaging your hair by constantly putting it through heat styling. Instead, try washing your hair before bed, and letting it air dry. This will save your hair all that time under the blow dryer, and you can quickly fix random sections of hair with the hot tool of your choice to perfect your look.
Another detail you may overlook that has a big effect on your hair is HOW you allow your hair to air dry. Throwing your hair into a tight ponytail or bun may seem harmless, but the tension on your fragile wet hair can cause breakage and leave you with frayed, damaged, frizzy looking hair. Be sure to let your hair loose when air drying, free of any tight elastics or metal clips.
If you want shiny, voluminous, healthy looking hair, leave a day or two between washes (depending on your hair type, whether its thick and course, or thin and fine will determine how long you can go without washing it). Invest in a shower cap, and give your scalp a break.
Being exposed to some of the strong detergents present in regular shampoos can dry out your scalp, and cause it to dry out your hair of its natural oils. Be sure to use a more natural, gentle shampoo like the Pura d’Or Pro Organic Shampoo. This will ensure that your hair will look its best with a healthy, shiny, voluminous bounce.
