Many people think that the styling process is most important in creating beautiful hair, but he opposite is true. How you treat your hair during the basic care phases is key to determining how great it will look after you style it. The products and tools you use and how you use them, as well as self care, all play a role.
Go inside out. Start with what you put into your body as well as what you expose it to. Great eating habits will contribute to great hair. If you put healthy foods like plenty of lean proteins, fruits and vegetables into your body, then you will feel and look better. Hair included. When it comes to avoidances, keep stress and toxins like cigarette smoke and chemicals as far away as possible.
Don’t shampoo too often. Your hair’s natural oils are crucial to helping maintain strands, so don’t strip them. Opt for a regular professional blowout to maintain your style, and remember that dry shampoos can extend the life of your blowouts, especially if you have naturally curly hair.
After conditioning, try rinsing your hair with cold water to help seal the cuticle and prevent moisture from entering your hair follicles, which causes frizz.
Take care when wet. This is when your hair is the most delicate. Let it dry almost all the way prior to heavy brushing. And use a natural-bristle brush to minimize damage.
Dry carefully. Choose the warm setting and hold your dryer 6 to 8 inches out, pointing down. This deters frizz. Never use the hottest setting, especially if you intend to use other tools that will emit heat onto your hair. For extra protection, try an anti-frizz serum to protect from heat and help prevent styling damage.
Volumize. Spray a volumizer on your dry roots. Flip over your hair and blow dry, and then brush to add smoothness.
Trim. For longer hair, we sometimes forget it’s important to keep regular trims. Every 6 to 8 weeks is ideal for healthy locks.
The products you use play such an important role in your hair’s health. All-natural and organic ingredients like those in green&glam hair care products bring out the best in your hair without exposing it to harsh ingredients. Nature’s best always brings out the most beautiful you!
