Tips and tricks for hair care

Hair beauty and shine always depends on proper care

Thin, lifeless hair that cannot be styled into a beautiful hairstyle is a problem familiar to about half of women. To restore the lost shine to the hair, get rid of dryness, following the rules for caring for dry scalp and hair will help:

Choose the right shampoo: it must contain lanolin or glycerin, panthenol. Of the additives, almond oil, shea butter, avocado proved to be the best. Be sure to use conditioner, masks and other care products. Better to take a cosmetic line from one manufacturer. The best option if you use heat protectants for hair. They help to maintain the necessary moisture in the scalp and restore the water-fatty film. Wash and dry your hair correctly: the less often the better, but without fanaticism. If daily washing is required, it is better to wash daily than walking around with messy hair and getting upset about it. Use lukewarm water or herbal teas. After washing, gently pat dry your hair with a towel.

If dryness is temporary, avoid styling with a hair dryer, curling iron, iron or other electrical appliances. First, restore the health of your hair, then return to your usual styling methods. If your skin has always been dry, choose the best hairstyle that will allow you to use electrical devices to a minimum. Never comb wet hair.

Apply a nourishing moisturizing mask to your scalp and hair at least once a week. You can buy it ready-made, or you can cook it yourself. Of the ready-made, it is better to take Leave In products, which do not need to be washed off.

Strongly dry ends should be lubricated with a special nourishing oil. If your hair looks fine along its entire length, but dry, split ends spoil everything, you can use masks and protective products made at home.

Proper care will have to start with a visit to the hairdresser: the dried split ends of the strands cannot be restored. They can only be cut. But it is possible and necessary to prevent their occurrence. Tips for caring for the ends of the strands will come to the rescue:

A thin protective film that is formed from fats synthesized by the sebaceous glands helps the hair to maintain its natural moisture. If you ate little, vegetable oils will come to the rescue: coconut, almond. They wonderfully protect the ends of the strands from drying out, help them recover. It is necessary to apply vegetable oils before each shampooing for 1.5 - 2 hours. After washing, you can gently grease the very ends. Nourishing masks help restore the natural beauty of hair. They are done 1-2 times a week before shampooing. The first yeast mask: 2 teaspoons of dry yeast are poured over with two tablespoons of warm kefir. Let it swell for 10-15 minutes, gently apply to the scalp at the roots. The process of applying the mask resembles coloring the roots, only the hair is covered with paint, and the mask is rubbed into the skin. Then you need to put on a plastic cap, wrap your head with a scarf on top, hold it for half an hour. Rinse off the mixture with warm water, you cannot rinse off with shampoo. A second effective mask for dry hair consists of equal parts warm melted honey and olive oil. The mixture must be mixed well so that it becomes homogeneous. Apply to the scalp, smear the ends of the strands separately. Wrap in plastic and a warm scarf. Hold for about an hour, wash your hair as usual. After washing, be sure to use a conditioner balm. But it is better to wash off the balm not with water, but with a decoction of medicinal herbs. Nettle, chamomile, linden, mint, oregano, calendula and others will do. It is necessary to properly distribute the shampoo through the hair: the main part is whipped into foam at the roots. A simple rinse with the remaining foam is enough for the ends of the strands.

Professionals recommend applying special moisturizing oils to the ends, but they are not always at hand. They can be replaced with facial moisturizers. The main thing is not to overdo it with the quantity.

Be sure to add vitamins to the diet. In our country, there are few regions in which there are enough vegetables and fruits.

Before using electrical appliances for drying or styling hair, they must be protected with a special heat-resistant agent. With normal hair with dry ends, you will have to completely abandon styling with a curling iron.

Porous hair quickly absorbs dirt, frizz, and loses moisture easily. Most of the time, the hairstyle resembles a ripe dandelion: light thin strands stick out in different directions. Such hair requires a special approach: Clean porous hair with a neutral shampoo, be sure to use a hair scrub. Make moisturizing, nourishing masks at least twice a week. Porous strands during dyeing unevenly absorb pigment, so it is better to refuse dyeing altogether. If this is not possible, you should use paints without ammonia, natural pigments. Before styling, be sure to cover your hair with a layer of heat protectant. In the summer, especially in the south, you need to wear a hat, lubricate your hair with coconut or almond oil so that it does not dry out. There are professional products designed for porous, dry hair. To protect strands from the sun, dust, low temperatures, lamination, keratinization, haircut with hot scissors will help.
