Part of your beauty lies in your hair and you should do everything you can to maintain it. People often spend a lot of money on hair treatments, but avoid doing the simple things that can actually help. Your hair doesn’t need expensive hair care products. In fact, some of those products are the reason for your hair fall problem. Just do what we tell you to and you’ll be fine. Here are 4 hair care tips to live by:
Air-dry Your Hair
We’ve all made the mistake of drying our hair with a towel from time to time. While there is nothing conventionally wrong with it, it does weaken your hair. You’ll realize this when you see fallen hair on your bathroom floor after leaving the shower. Letting your hair air-dry is the smarter thing to do. It will prevent unnecessary hair fall and the need to buy a wig. You’ve got to be like Cuba Gooding Jr. from the movie ‘Jerry Maguire’. That guy doesn’t even have hair. Guess he learnt his lesson the hard way.
Wash Your Hair Sparingly
It’s good to wash your hair, but you shouldn’t do it too often. And when you do, make sure you use a good shampoo. Washing your hair daily dries it out. However, if you do it twice a week you shouldn’t have a problem. You should also use a conditioner along with the shampoo to protect your hair from damage. Combing your hair while it’s wet can lead to breakage, so try to avoid it. Use a broad comb if you absolutely have to, as it will prevent your hair from breakage. Like we mentioned before, letting your hair air-dry is the way to go in order to prevent hair fall.
If you change your hairstyle every month, then you won’t have hair for very long. Over-styling your hair can lead to hair fall. Even using a hair-dryer makes your hair weak. Imagine what the different hair styling products do to it. Avoid hair styles such as tight ponytails, because they tend to put a lot of pressure on your hair. Learn interesting hairstyles from online hairstyling schools that you can try at home. Pick a hairstyle and stick to it for at least a while before changing it.
Stress is one of the main reasons for hair fall. If you want to keep your hair until you die, then you need to avoid stress at all costs. Take time out of your busy schedule to relax and enjoy life. If you feel too stressed out it won’t be such a bad idea to get a spa treatment. Those treatments do wonders for your mind, skin and hair. You’ll come out as a whole new person with a better outlook towards life. Don’t let work get the better of you, or else you’ll find yourself pulling out your own hair. Now that would be a real tragedy.
People spend an awful lot of money to maintain their hair. You can do it by just following these simple tips.
