1. Know how to take care of your hair in the shower, or before it!
One of the golden secrets for taking care of your hair is brushing your hair before washing it. After all, it activates and increases circulation, you know? In curly and curly hair, the rule does not apply: prefer to remove the knots under the water, with the help of the conditioner to detangle.
Another little secret, this one has already known, is to avoid hot water during the shower, as it removes the protective layer of the hair and leaves the cuticles open. So, even if you like lukewarm water, bet on that trick to finish the wash with a little cold water! This closes the cuticles – which protect the strands – and helps to add shine to the hair . !
2. Don’t shampoo or conditioner too much
Okay, this topic could be there in the part about how to take care of your hair in the shower, but it seems so harmless to most people that it deserves a spot in the sun!
Remember that maxim “nothing in excess is good” and think about that too when applying the products inside the box.
First of all, using the most suitable shampoo and conditioner for your hair type and in the right amounts are essential factors in achieving the desired effect. Generally, it is best for you to figure out the ideal amount of product your hair needs, but the average for medium to long hair is equivalent to 1/2 tablespoon. While for short hair, the average amount of product is 1/2 tsp.
Oh, and never, ever apply conditioner to the roots, huh! The right thing is to apply it on the lengths and ends and only then, when you are rinsing, give that hand pass closer to the scalp – followed by a lot of water to remove everything ok?
If you insist on the idea, you may have peeling, in addition to excessive oil. And the opposite goes for shampoo: apply at the root (without mixing it all over the hair) and just when rinsing, let the product run down to the ends, as this quick contact is enough to clean the length without damaging or drying the wires.
3. Cut regularly
When it comes to taking care of your hair, cutting it regularly is a super cool tip. That’s because trimming the ends of the wires every 40 or 60 days prevents the weakening of the locks. What happens when we go without a haircut is that it starts to branch out, becoming thinner and more vulnerable.
I know, this time doesn’t always seem like enough time for the hair to grow as much as we want, but the truth is that if you take too long to cut, the split ends will take over, or the wires will start to break – making make you cut a lot more than you want when you actually decide to go to the hairdresser.
4. Use thermal and sun protection
As we know, warmer temperatures end up opening the hair cuticles, which act as a gateway for the nutrients that arrive.
So, if you expose your hair a lot to the sun or use a hair dryer, curling iron and flat iron, always invest in a thermal protector and hair sunscreen to avoid heat damage.
Ah… A tip: don’t put the dryer on the same strand for more than 5 seconds and apply cold air last to fix the hairstyle. And, if you can, really bet on the natural beauty of your hair! We don’t need to expose our wires to unnecessary damage, do we?
5. Use specific products for your hair type
Our last and most important hair care tip is: Pay attention to the details!
That’s right, some habits can harm the health of your wires even without you realizing it. And one of these is the use of inappropriate products, so always try to use products specific to your hair type so they can highlight the strengths of your strands!
After all, hair has many variations straight, wavy, curly and frizzy and for each one, there are different specifications regarding its thickness, volume and shine. Therefore, investing in personalized products ends up being the best option.
After all, what would be better for your hair than a product made especially for it, right? Not to mention that JustForYou personalized products not only take into account the curvature of your hair, but also the procedures performed, care routine, habits, time of life, stress, diet, goals… that meet all your hair needs.
