Seven Hair Care Secrets You Must Know

1

Want to keep your gorgeous locks looking healthy?
Consider these hair care tips and maintain a fizz-free, smooth, and silky hair.

1. Deep conditioning solution for fizz-free hair

Damaged, dry and parched hair usually results to frizzy hair. So give your crowning glory the moisture it needs by using deep conditioning masks at least once a week. You may soak your hair in coconut oil or olive oil for an hour, rinse and enjoy your soft, silky and nourished hair.

2. Feed your hair

Just like your body, your hair also needs nutrients to be healthy. Certain nutrients are essential for healthy hair follicle growth and function. These nutrients also aid in normal sebum production for hair protection.  Vitamin B2, Silica, Selenium, Potassium, and antioxidants such as Vitamin C, Beta Carotene and Lycopene are the nutrients that promote healthy hair as well as skin and nails. So make sure you also maintain a healthy diet so that the nutrients your body takes can help prevent hair loss and poor hair growth.

3. Less foam + low chemical content = brighter hair color

Keep your hair’s color from fading by using shampoos and conditioners with low chemical or alcohol content. Do avoid hair products that contain high amounts of chemical cleansers and foaming agents.

4. Massage your scalp lightly

Greasy hair may be a result of over-massaging your scalp so apply less pressure and banish grease from your crowning glory. Remember to apply conditioner to just the mid-length and ends of your hair because the high oil content in conditioners can bring too much oil in your scalp.

5. No need to shampoo everyday

The cleansing agent in shampoos can strip the natural oils in your hair. It also zaps color and cause damage to your locks. So better skip the shampoo for some days and wash your hair with just cold water.  If you feel the need to use shampoo every day, use one with a low pH level like a baby shampoo or herbal shampoo as these are gentler to your hair.

6. Lowest heat setting possible, please 

Go easy on the use of hot tools like hair iron as heat can torture your hair. Try to avoid putting your hair through such pain every day. If you really need to, choose the lowest heat setting and don’t hold or run the flat iron onto your hair for too long.

7. Change shampoos every 2-3 months

Your hair gets used to the products that you use so shock the roots every two months by alternating between a couple of shampoos and conditioners. If your head doesn’t get too complacent, it won’t produce so much oil so you’ll maintain a full, fresh and healthy hair.

Give your tresses enough TLC and you’ll soon have healthy hair with less split ends and more volume.

10. Go for downward strokes when applying powder or foundation.

Go for downward strokes when applying powder or foundation

While we are encouraged to wash our face and apply face creams using upwards strokes, the opposite is necessary when applying foundation or powder. The downward strokes will not cause face sagging and fine lines, don’t worry. It is because of the facial hair that tends to grow downwards that must be addressed. If foundation is applied using upward strokes, the slightest bit of hair in your face as well as your foundation will look noticeable. So keep the little fuzzy hairs smooth and hidden by brushing foundation in downward strokes.

Now you don’t have to be a professional to look fabulous. Try these makeup tricks and be able to apply makeup that looks beautiful and natural. Once you’ve mastered these makeup tips, you can easily accentuate your best features and hide the flaws without taking so much time and effort.
