It’s important that you take good care of your hair to get such healthy shiny hair. It’s also important to not over do anything, as it can cause damage. Understand what is essential and good for your hair and use it the right way. Here are 10 simple ways in which you can get healthy shiny hair.
Use a serum for hair that is dry and frizzy. Hair serum contains silicon which coats the hair and makes it look shiny. It also makes your hair look smooth and silky, and also easily manageable. Apply it to the length and tips of your hair, but don’t apply on the scalp. Also, do not use too much of serum.
A weekly deep conditioning treatment works wonders on your hair. You can either use homemade conditioning treatments or get it done at a salon or spa. You can also use a leave in conditioner which keeps hair soft and moisturized.
Wash Hair With Cool Water
Always use luke-warm water to wash hair. Using hot water can strip protective oils from your hair and make it dry and brittle. Moreover, rinsing hair with cool water after shampoo and conditioning will close the cuticles and benefit your hair.
Blow Dry The Correct Way
Do not use blow dryer on a daily basis. Allow your hair to air dry. Whenever you do use a blow dryer, make sure you dry your hair in the right way. Always point the blow dryer down the hair shaft, doing in opposite direction of the hair shaft can cause hair cuticles to become rough and make hair dry and frizzy. Keep the dryer 8 inches away from your hair.
Hydrate Your Body
Drinking plenty of water is essential. It keeps body healthy, and gives good healthy and shiny hair. Drinking about 8 glasses of water a day is considered ideal.
Maintain Good Healthy Diet
What we consume on a daily basis is very important. It reflects on your body and hair. Without good healthy diet any other method of hair care will not give good results. Make sure you eat plenty of raw fruits and vegetables.
Skin is not the only thing that can get damaged by the sun. Even hair needs good protection from the sun. It can get dry and brittle, especially hair that is color treated. Wear a hat or cover hair with scarf and use hair products that have UV protection.
Avoid Harsh Chemicals And Heating Products
Limit the use of hair colors and bleaches, the harsh chemicals in them can cause lot of damage to your hair. Same goes with using heat products, try and avoid flat ironing and curling your hair.
Don’t Wash Hair Frequently
Hair doesn’t need to be washed every day. If washing hair every other day works fine for you then stick on to it, as daily washing and using of shampoo can strip away essential oils from the scalp.
Use Good Hair Brush
