There are many factors that can damage our hair. Exposure from the sun and using a wide range of styling tools can contribute to your hair drying out and damaged. The good news is that there is still something you can do to restore the shine and luster of your hair. Therapy Hair Salon offers a wide range of services that will keep your hair your best asset. Here are some tips for keeping your hair in the best condition.
- Use Over-The-Counter Conditioner
There are many products available on the market that can help you maintain moisture in your hair so look for one that is right for your specific hair needs. For kinky hair, look for a product designed for such kind of hair. For fine hair, look for products described as “light” or “weightless.” Choosing a brand with heavier oil will make your hair look as such.
- Wash your Hair
Use a gentle shampoo. Avoid brands made with sulfates as they will remove the hair’s natural oils resulting to dryness and breakage.
- Apply the conditioner
Squeeze a drop of the conditioner about the size of a quarter and apply the product into your hair halfway down the shaft and going down to the tip of your hair. Give more attention to the tips as they have the tendency to become drier than the rest of the hair. For even distribution, use a wide-toothed comb.
- Allow The Product to Set In
Let the product set in by at least leaving it for 10 minutes. Depending on what you are using, you may have to leave it longer but should take effect in less than 30 minutes. You can keep the conditioner in place by covering your head with a plastic shower cap.
- Apply heat
Some products recommend a hair dryer to heat up your hair and allow more absorption of the hair. Keep the dryer at low setting.
- Rinse with cool water
Rinse your hair with cool water to tighten the hair shaft and keep it looking shiny. Use a towel to dry your hair and let it air dry before styling.
Just follow these tips and your hair will look shiny and bouncy.
