HEALTHY HAIR TIPS

An excellent way to obtain healthy hair is to make sure you know about the latest products, best available tools, and current techniques for taking care of hair. The following secrets are things that every person can do:

-Haircut – One of the best tips for healthy hair is to ensure your hair looks great by getting regular haircuts. Keep in mind the four important aspects of a haircut: density, texture, type, and facial shape, finally, a good haircut should last six weeks.

-Use Products Wisely – Go easy on the products. If you apply gel to your hair, use a small, dime-size portion rather than filling the palms of your hands with the product. The same would be true with hairspray. You do not want your hair to appear stiff, but flowing and natural. Therefore, use a small amount of spray and allow your hair to have movement. The use of too many products will cause your hair to appear greasy and weighed down. You want to be careful when mixing and matching products. Instead of applying a leave-in conditioner, styling mousse, gel, and then hairspray, simply shampoo and condition your hair and then use one product. Additionally, it would be best to use the same brands as they are designed to work together for the best results.

 -Curling Irons and Flat Irons – Many people use irons to achieve their desired look. They are a great tool to get bouncing curls or a sleek professional look. You can go overboard with using flat irons, I have seen more damaged hair from flat irons than anything else. Always make sure your hair is 100% dry before using any type of iron on your hair. I also recommend using a heat protectant on your hair when using any type of iron. When you do flat iron, pass over a section of hair 1-2 times moving the iron quickly from scalp to ends. Do not hold it longer in sections or go over certain sections again and again – this is what causes damage!
When curling your hair, I always recommend starting with the iron near your scalp or the mid shaft of your hair and then working your way down to the ends. If you want looser waves, then take bigger sections of hair. If you prefer tighter curls, use smaller sections along with a smaller iron (1 inch or less).
Finishing a curly style is easy. If you’re looking for a soft, Hollywood glam look, take a boar bristle brush and lightly brush your curls, this will give you a soft wave. If you’re looking for a tousled, beachy look, flip your head over, and with your fingers, comb through your hair, then when you flip your hair back, it will be soft and natural. Always finish with a soft hold hair spray to maintain your look for the rest of the day.

 -Body – Dealing with limp, lifeless hair is another common problem, once the hair is approximately 50% dry, apply mousse or gel and with a vent brush, work it through. Now, flip your head over again, drying it until completely dry.

 -Cowlicks – If you struggle with cowlicks, instead of fighting these areas of the hair, use them to your advantage. Start by parting or sweeping the hair over at the location of the cowlick for a nice lift, another option is to brush your hair toward the cowlick with a little bit of gel. The result will be a nice fullness that makes the hair look great and hides the cowlick.
