Do you ever look at those hair commercials trying to advertise a hair product and say to yourself, "Yeah, right!" As if they managed to achieve luscious and healthy looking hair with just using that product! For anyone interested in improving the quality of his/her hair, today I thought I would share with you some of the do's and don'ts that have personally worked for me, with my main concerns being spit ends, dullness and frizz. In this post, I will also be collaborating with Madison Reed, which uses the latest product formulation technologies to create products that provide the best results. They are healthier for you and your hair and they even deliver them directly to your home. They have kindly also shared ten hair myths that we've all probably heard of and had professional stylists explain them a bit better.
1) Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel, because while wet, your hair very weak and vulnerable to breaking. Instead, try squeezing your hair lightly to absorb extra water. This will help protect your hair from split ends.
2) While using a blow dryer don't keep it too close to the scalp because the intense heat can further damage your hair.
3) Never run your comb from the roots to the tips, as this will push all your tangles together. Always start by detangling your ends and then start going further up gradually.
4) Don't apply heavy conditioner at the scalp, it's better if these are applied at the ends where the hair tends to be the most dry.
1) Let your hair air dry as often as possible but if you're running late, make use of the cold setting.
2) Making use of a silky pillowcase or a night hood will reduce the amount of friction created with your hair during the night therefore causing less frizz.
4) Drink lots of water and eat fruits and vegetables. This might sometimes be overlooked but indirectly it definitely has an impact on the quality of your hair.
5) Try to apply a conditioning mask once a week as this can offer deeper hydration and repair, leaving hair shiny and lush. Do try to keep with the instructions in regards to the time you leave it on (usually 2-5 minutes is enough) because this will optimize the moisturization of your hair and will allow it to be fully absorbed.
That's it! I hope you find these helpful. If you're interested in dying your hair, but you're not sure which color would best suit you, you can try out this hair color quiz by Madison Reed.
