If you like to style your hair in a ponytail, avoid placing the ponytail in the same spot on your head every time. If you repeatedly wear your hair in a ponytail, your hair is likely to break. Even if you have to wear your hair up at work, let it down whenever possible to give it a break from the constant stress.
Heavy conditioners are not meant for fine, thin hair. They will just weight your hair down, making it look thinner. You can add mousse or leave-in conditioners to give your hair volume, and these will not leave a greasy residue.
Don’t use a blow dryer if you can avoid it. Styling your hair with heat can often damage your hair and cause it to become frizzy. Instead, when your hair is wet keep it in a towel until it dries out. In this way, the hair can dry on its own without generating excess frizz.
Nevermind the old wives’ tale about more frequent trims causing your hair to grow faster. Human hair grows at a constant rate, about 1/2 inch each month, no matter how much you cut it. Hair does tend to grow fastest in the summer or when taking biotin supplements; however, your stylist’s scissors will not make your hair grow any faster. Trimming your hair does make it look better by removing split ends.
There are now products available that will give your hair the effect of just having bathed in the salty ocean. These sprays may be called “salt spray” or something like that. If you want to make your own concoction, try mixing one teaspoon of salt with eight ounces of water. Add ten drops or so of lavender oil, and you have bottled ocean water.
Do not use a blow dryer too often. Blow dryers use heat that can be very damaging to your hair. Instead, let your hair air dry whenever possible. If you have to make use of a blow dryer, make sure you keep it on a cool setting. In addition, never hold the dryer on the same spot very long. To quickly dry hair, dry your hair with a towel before blow drying.
During the fall and winter, make sure that you avoid staying out in the cold for too long. Exposure to cold temperatures may strip your hair of its natural oils and protective barriers. If you are going to be exposed to cold weather for an extended period, make sure you bundle up.
Make sure that your shampoo is not stripping your hair of natural oils. If you have especially oily hair avoid using a strong shampoo to remove all the oil because this can cause rebound oil in your hair. It can also damage your hair tremendously, so be sure that you’re using gentle products. Some people can even get away with only washing their hair a couple times a week.
Keep in mind that your hair will probably go through a number of changes as you grow older. You may find your hair becoming grayer, more dry and increasingly brittle. A different texture could even develop. For example, your curly hair could become straight. Should thes changes concern you, consult with a physician.
