Using heat protecting sprays
When you're in a rush and trying to make your hair as sleek and smooth as possible, it's easy to forget about protecting it. But, when you do, you're risking split ends, denying it its natural oils, and opening yourself up to a world of frizz.
One way to prevent heat damage is to knock your dryer's temperature down a notch and spritz with a heat protecting thermal spray to provide it with a shield against your straighteners.
Not washing too often
The number of times you wash your hair should depend on your hair type and lifestyle. However, as a general rule, washing it every day strips the natural oils, leaving you with either a lank or frizzy, lifeless look.
Instead of washing your hair on a daily basis, give it a break with a dry shampoo. According to hair care experts, the less you wash your hair, the less you need to. With dry shampoo, you avoid that greasy look and snag the best of both worlds plus it saves you time.
Exercise caution when combing wet hair
Okay, we've all been there. Your hair is wet, but it's brimming with tangles, and you know your hair dryer will only make them worse. However, it probably won't help matters by attacking it with your usual bristly brush, as this is when your hair is at its most fragile and unwilling to come to the 'smooth and knot free' party.
To avoid damaging it, turn to a wide-toothed comb instead and throw in a detangling spray such as NFuzion's Detangler. That way, you'll reduce the risk of damage and keep it looking shinier for longer, plus you won't have a frustrating fight through the jungle!
Use a deep conditioner once a week
Life is pretty demanding in this day and age so you can't help but put your hair through a lot. Exposure to heat, pollution, chlorine, sun, stress, colour, styling can make it brittle and lifeless.
Like your face, your hair will benefit from a deep conditioning session once a week. Unlike your everyday conditioner, a deep conditioner will wiggle its way into your hair and give its follicles a chance to strengthen themselves. You'll still need a trim from time to time to stop split ends, but a deep treatment masque weekly will space those visits to the hairdresser out, bargain!
Now that you know some of the best and easiest hair care advice, make sure you maximise your usual routine. Go on, you know you and your locks are worth it.
