Choosing The Proper Shampoo And Conditioner…
- If your hair is dry, use a shampoo and conditioner that is rich in moisturizers and emollients.
- For damaged hair, use a shampoo with a low pH, and use a conditioner which contains plenty of protein.
- Remember, thin hair needs shampoo and conditioner having protein and body building ingredients which coat and “plump” the hair.
- For oily hair, use alcohol-free, pH neutral shampoo (and try conditioning hair weekly instead of daily).
Does Your Hair Seem A Little On The Dry Side Lately?
If your hair suddenly begins to feel a little on the dry side… and sometimes even brittle… chances are you are overdoing it with the blow-dryer… either you are blow-drying for too long a time or you are using too high a temperature setting.
Here’s a quick, easy way to see if your hair is dry.
|STEP 1||Take a stray hair and hold the root end between your index finger and your thumb.|
|STEP 2||Run your thumbnail and the index finger of your other hand down the last 2 inches of the hair strand.|
Initially the strand of hair should curl and then resume its original shape. If it doesn’t, your hair may be in need of a good deep conditioning treatment… or, at the very least, you should begin using a moisturizing shampoo and/or conditioner on your hair to get it back in tip-top shape.
Give Your Hair More Body!
Is your hair falling flat or going limp? Instead of a major overhaul, all it may really need is a quick little pick-me-upper.
Here is a quick and easy way to give your hair more body:
Shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo to strip off any styling product buildup.
Apply a heat protectant, volumizer, or mousse to your wet hair (work outward from the roots).
Bend at the waist and flip hair forward. Blow dry using medium heat until hair is almost dry.
Flip hair back up and wrap section by section around a styling brush, blow-drying as you go
Zap each section with a final shot of cool air to set your hair in place.
Limp Layers Got You Down?
If your hair is suddenly looking dull and limp, you may be using too much styling product on it.
When too much styling product is used, even the best gels and lotions and mousses will build up and weigh down your hair.
At least once a week you should remove all this nasty buildup with a clarifying shampoo.
If you’re in a pinch, you can always use a homemade rinse guaranteed to work… simply mix one part vinegar to every twenty parts water, pour through your hair, and rinse!
