How to take care of hair at home?


A good-looking hair is more than just a matter of personal tastes. As states: “having hair that is lustrous and vibrant and that looks healthy and well-cared-for is considered a sign of attractiveness”. Physical attractiveness helps to achieve a better social status which leads to many well-known benefits. We all know that personality is what matters the most, but as statistics show, looks matter too. More in this article

All of the said doesn’t necessarily mean that now we’re forced to spend hundreds of dollars every month in beauty salons. There are many good ways to take care of your hair at home. I’m going to list them below:

Wash your hair properly. Most of the people abuse the usage of shampoo, while it’s recommended to use it only once every two days. Some specialists even recommend using shampoo only twice a week!Avoid the usage of shampoos that contain sulfates or parabens. With all the latest talks about the usage of chemicals in the food industry, we’re getting used to check the alimentary products’ ingredients and discard the ones that have sulfates, nitrites, trans fats and so on. That said few of us are aware that some shampoos contain harmful and unhealthy chemicals as well. Next time you’ll be buying a pot of shampoo, check its components and avoid the ones which contain sulfates and/or parabens.Use the right conditioner every time you wash your hair. Besides performing a deep conditioning every week, use a conditioner after every bath, especially if you were using shampoo. The question is how to choose the right conditioner? While most of the experts recommend using the conditioner which matches your hair qualities (type, length, and treatment damage), there is another recommendation worth considering. Tanushree Singh from the Only My Health Editorial Team recommends focusing on choosing the right shampoo for your hair first, and then just picking the appropriate conditioner from the same brand. She speculates that every brand develop their own recipes and formulas for specific hair conditions, so if a specific brand have the best shampoo formula for your hair, then it’s very probable that they will have the best conditioner as well.Avoid brushing wet hair. Instead, wrap your wet hair in a cotton towel and let the cotton absorb the moisture. After some minutes try to use a wide toothed comb rather than a common hairbrush. In fact, brushing your hair too often isn’t healthy and will result in split ends and frizz.Trim your hair once every 6-8 weeks, especially if your goal is to achieve a long hair. Split ends don’t look good on any kind of haircut, and trimming the split ends about 1-4 inch (0.6 cm) above the splitting will greatly improve both its health and looks.Try to style your hair naturally and minimize the styling damage. The first way to achieve that is by performing any kind of hair styling lesser than once a week. Avoid overheating your hair when curling or straightening it. There are some quite economic, yet effective heat protecting sprays in the market. If you have ever used a heat protectant, maybe it’s time to consider using one. Avoid using cheap hair straighteners, since they are usually poorly configured and therefore might easily overheat your hair. There’s a wide choice of flatirons out there. I’ll mention the opinion of Amanda Montel and Jessica Amaris on the best hair straightener of the year. In their article they made a review of the top 7 flat irons in the market and the number one was the GHD Gold Professional 1-Inch Styler. It might be quite expensive, but it is one of the few straighteners that will prevent your hair from overheating and therefore it’s the healthiest option available.

In conclusion, taking care of your hair is very important. In fact, that’s one of the things that cannot be easily overrated. The good news is that you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars every month in order to achieve a healthy and nice-looking hair. Give your hair the care it deserves and you won’t be disappointed! Read more at Diva Hair Studio
