Having great hair greatly improves your overall look, and wouldn’t it be great if every day was a great hair day?
Unfortunately, that’s not the case for most people.
Luckily though, no matter what hair type you have you can improve your hair with some simple tricks.
In this article, you’ll get 4 simple ways that you can improve your hair and make it look glossy and healthy.
1. Wash your hair the right way
How you wash your hair has a huge impact on how it looks. You probably know that there are good hair products, and there are bad hair products when it comes to your hair’s wellbeing, you don’t want to compromise.
First off, you should try not to wash your hair every day. A common misconception is that the more you wash your hair, the better, but that’s not the case. In fact, showering your hair daily will strip your hair of its natural oils and damage it. And when you add a bunch of bad products to your hair, as well as bad shampoos, you will disturb and harm your hair’s natural oils.
You should wash your hair regularly because, with long hair, it is a jungle for dirt, but try to avoid doing it daily best you can.
The best way to wash your hair is by massaging your scalp with shampoo first. Avoid doing this with conditioner. You can do this for a few seconds to really get it in before you rinse. When massaging the shampoo, you also decrease the risk of dandruff.
When you’ve washed your hair with shampoo, you can apply conditioner to your hair and gently apply it from the roots out. Let the conditioner sit for a few minutes before rinsing it off.
For your hair to look the very best, you should wash it with the coolest temperature possible, while of course avoiding freezing yourself.
2. Dry your hair with a blow dryer
The best way to dry your hair is by using a blow dryer. Blow dryers are more gentle to your hair and help you avoid damaging it with rough towels.
Use the cool setting and keep a distance between the blow dryer and your hair, because if you’re too close, you risk heating up the water and hair, which can cause damage to it.
If used wrongly, blow dryers can be harmful to your hair, but if used correctly, they are actually an effective way to dry your hair. Because so many people commit mistakes when using blow dryers, it has got the reputation to not be very good, but use it correctly and it is the best alternative.
When walking out of the shower, you should avoid drying it with a towel as hair is more fragile when wet, and using a towel can harm and damage your hair.
3. Don’t brush your hair when wet
A mistake many make is brushing their hair when it’s wet, but the problem with this is that wet hair is stretchier and more fragile, thus increasing the risk of it breaking.
What’s more, you also want to avoid brushing your hair too much and too often as it will cause breakage to your hair and make it less shiny and healthy.
4. Eat good foods
If you want to get to the root of the great hair, you should consider what you eat.
There are tons of healthy foods that ate known to strengthen your hair and make it more healthy, so adding that to your diet is something worth considering if you want to make your hair look flawless (which I am guessing you do).
If you risk hair loss, eating right can actually decrease the risk and prevent hair loss.
Essential fatty acids, such as omega-3 acids are known to have a positive effect on hair and nails, and the best part is that Omega-3 can be found in a lot of delicious food such as salmon, tuna, mackerel and other fatty fish. Ideally, you should try to get Omega- 3 every day through what you eat, but if that’s not possible, you can always eat omega- 3 capsules to complement.
Walnuts, almonds, and milk are also known to improve the health of your hair.
Lastly, protein is also known to improve the health of your hair. Try to consume fish, chicken, eggs or soy daily and you’ll soon be able to see an improvement in your hair’s health.
