Even if you haven’t had thick, rich hair since birth and can’t help but dye and style it constantly, there are tricks to help keep your hair from falling out and keep it healthy.
Cotton absorbs moisture
Cotton absorbs moisture – no matter how expensive it is. So while you sleep, it will absorb moisture from your hair and skin. Satin is more recommended as it is cooler and you will sweat less.
Washing your hair every day is not a healthy habit
Don’t wash your hair every day. It’s bad for your scalp! After you wash, your scalp has to overproduce oil, which makes your hair greasy. So the more often you wash it, the more often it will get fat. Even if you get in the shower and wet your hair, massage your scalp as if you were using shampoo, except the shampoo isn’t there! This will remove some of the oil from your scalp!
Even if you don’t wash your hair every day, it’s still necessary to use conditioner daily, especially people with long hair. Women fear conditioner because it can weigh their hair down, but times have moved on and moisturising conditioners have been invented. Apply it from the middle of the strand down and leave it on your hair for a few minutes to give a magical effect!
Use hair oils
It is recommended to use natural oils as a conditioner before shampooing your hair. Specifically, apply it to dry hair (you can possibly keep a cap on your head) and leave it on for 15 minutes. Then wash hair with shampoo and conditioner as usual.
If you take the comb and use it from top to bottom, you’ll bring all the tangles together, forming an even bigger tangle in your hair! You also risk breaking your ends, which is hard to fix.
Apparently you don’t need to trim your ends every six weeks! Once every three or four months is enough. Splitting hairs can’t be fixed, but it can be prevented.
P.S. : Hair grows less than an inch a month. If you have long hair, the ends may be split and burnt, so it may need a trim.
Dry shampoo keeps hair soft. It doesn’t contain alcohol, so it doesn’t dry your hair at all. Bonus: it’s recommended to use it before applying a hot device to the hair (e.g. flat iron, curling iron). Holds better than hairspray.
