10 tips to have gorgeous, silky and healthy hair all year round!
Are you always admiring glossy women’s hair in commercials and wondering why your hair is never the same as theirs? It can be â€“ here are some things you can do so your hair will constantly look as if you have just stepped out of a hair salon.
Sleep on silk
If possible, get yourself a silk pillowcase. This will make so much difference since less friction will be caused between the pillow and your hair. Another option is wrapping your hair in a satin scarf or a nightcap while sleeping.
Get regular trims
Even if you want to have long hair and can’t wait for them to grow out, it is important to cut your ends at least every two months so they don’t start to split. This way, your hair will be much shinier and healthier and it will grow out even faster.
If your hair ends are thin and prone to breakage, nourish them with a drop of good hair oil after every hair wash. Be careful that you don’t apply too much so your hair doesn’t look oily.
Find the right products for your hair type
To nourish your hair properly, you have to first know them really well. Make sure you know whether your scalp is oily or dry, if you have thick or thin hair and how quickly your hair absorbs different products. The color of your hair also matters, and there are different products you need depending on whether your hair is natural or artificially colored.
Keep them moisturized with hair masks
Your hair deserves royal pampering a few times a week: after washing it, apply hair mask and wrap it in a towel for at least ten minutes. Try BYROKKO Coconut Bomb hair mask â€“ not only it smells divine, it will also improve every hair’s type texture and shine and make your hair look soft and light.
Try not to use heat-styling tools often
Try to style your hair without blow dryers, hair curlers, hair straighteners, hot rollers etc. If you have to use them for some special occassions, protect your hair with heat-protecting spray afterwards.
Invest in a good brush and don’t brush your hair from top to bottom as you are probably used to â€“ this is more likely to cause breakage. Start at the bottom, where your hair is especially tangled. Then, slowly move upwards, closer to the scalp. Be careful that you use paddle brush for detangling and round brush only for styling your hair.
Eat the right foods and supplements
Make sure to eat foods rich with iron, zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids, and protein. Protein is especially important since it is the primary component of your hair. It can be find in lean meat, poultry, fish, beans, low-fat dairy products and eggs. Also, do your research on the supplements that can also help you on your way to healthier hair. Collagen, for example, helps with hair growth and hair regeneration.
Rinse with cold water
Rinsing hair with cold water after washing helps close your hair cuticles and pores on the scalp. This will make your hair look strong and shiny and also prevent dirt, grease and oil getting in.
Don’t wear ponytails too often
Not only this hairstyle, if you wear it every day, damages your hair and causes them to break, a tight ponytail can also be a reason for migraines and pain in your scalp. Opt for loosely tied hair instead.
