We all know that one chick who has the perfectly groomed, never frizzy, salon type hair that looks like she just stepped out of a Herbal Essence commercial. She gets up early to blow dry her hair, does leave in treatments, doesn’t even straighten her hair. As much as we admire her hair, we just don’t have time for that type of treatment of our hair. Our lives are way to chaotic. Below are some tips that can give your similar hair easily.
Only wash your hair 2 or 3 times a week, MAX!
Whenever you shampoo your hair, your natural oils on your hair are stripped away. Those oils are there to protect your hair. This can actually create a vicious cycle of causing oily hair, and a need to shampoo daily. For healthy hair, you only need to wash it 2 or 3 times max.
Start avoiding hot showers and shampoo your scalp
When it is time to wash your hair, we just grab what we have and scrunch it into our hair. There is actually a way that you should be washing your hair. You need to use around the size of a quarter amount of shampoo for short hair, while longer hair is going to need at least a half-dollar sized amount. You need to scrub the scalp and not your ends. Take some time and really massage your shampoo into your scalp. This encourages blood circulation and detoxifies the scalp.
Always brush from the bottom up
Healthy hair needs to be brushed regularly, but if you are wanting untangled healthy hair, then aim for brushing it twice a day. Do it when you wake up and when you go to bed. Be sure to start from the bottom as it doesn’t pull you hair to the point of breaking.
