It is important that you never use hot water to wash your hair. The only thing this is going to do is dry your hair out and when using hot water frequently, it could even cause irreparable damage to it. It is recommended that you use lukewarm water when washing your hair.
When choosing a brush to use on your hair, choose one with soft bristles, instead of hard ones. There are brushes available that are made of animal fibers or soft bristles that will be easier on your hair and not cause any type of damage to your beautiful hair!
Before committing to a major change in your hair color, try an online site that you can upload your photo on and try virtual changes! These sites can really help you to determine if the new color is worth all the trouble you will put your hair through. You can play around with cuts, curls and all kinds of styles without ever really changing a hair on your head! Do not believe the old advice about cutting your hair to encourage it to grow faster. Biologically, this is impossible. A trim can do wonders for the appearance of your hair, however, especially if the ends are split, dry or heavily damaged. For longer, healthier locks, treat your hair well and be patient as it grows. Is static a problem for your hair? Try using a dryer sheet! Lightly rubbing the dryer sheet against your hair will remove the static and leave it looking smooth. If you’d prefer to save your dryer sheets for the dryer, static can also be treated with an all-natural boar bristle hair brush. Ensure that you buy shampoos and conditioners that are made specifically for your hair type. This will ensure that you will be getting the most out of your hair cleaning products and not weighing it down with heavier products, if you do not need them. Your hair will thank you! Take the time to read the labels on all of the hair care products that you plan on using. You may find that your favorite products contain harsh chemicals or other ingredients that you’d rather not place in your hair on a consistent basis. In fact, some of these ingredients may have a short term hair benefit, but in the long run, they can damage your hair even more!
