4 Simple Ways to Make Your Hair Pop
It's easy to fall into a bit of a hair rut. Wash, style, rinse and repeat. But even though the saying "If ain't broke,don't fix it" is usually true, there are still plenty of quick and easy things that can be done to make your hair have that extra edge. So, if you're interested in finding out how to leave bad hair days behind for good, then check out these upcoming simple and almost effortless tips!
Hot Then Cold
Who doesn't love a steaming hot shower? I know I love getting that water as hot as I can stand! Nevertheless, your hair might not agree. Heat can be traumatic for our lovely locks and it's usually a good idea to follow up that hot shower with a cold or cool rinse. This will keep your cuticles healthy and prevent any further damage. The same goes for styling. It is also a great idea to let some cold or cool air run through your hair after any sort of heat styling or treatment. Whether its a simple cold blow or even standing close to the vent on your A/C unit during summer, that cold breeze will keep the flyaways at bay for longer and keep you looking your best.
The Right Stuff
The optimal way to keep your hair from breaking and getting damaged is to keep it down and loose at all times. However, since we live in the real world, it's obvious that there will be plenty of situations where you are going to want to keep your hair up and out of the way. For these moments the best thing you can do is have a tie in hand that will hold your hair in the desired place without putting too much pressure on it. The looser the updo, the better. Stay away from tight hair ties and opt for a loose clip style that will still do the job without all that added stress. Another must-have is a brush that won't tear and snap the hair as it makes its way through with each stroke. Brushing is an excellent way to keep your hair looking great and it reduces the wild look but using the right type of brush is key. Experiment with different types of bristles in your brush until you find the one that fits your hair type. In fact, some hair types do better with less brushing than others. Get to know your hair by trying different brushing schedules and it will definitely show.
Soft And Sharp Maintenance
Maintenance is unavoidable but it doesn't have to be a long drawn out process. Keeping your ends trimmed is the best way to always look salon fresh. If you can go to the salon once or twice a month then definitely do so but if you can't, then it only takes a bit of practice to keep your ends looking gorgeous year-round. If you don't know where to start, you can always check out our past blog post where we share the best tips to keep your hair fresh and trimmed at home. An excellent and completely hands-off way to keep it looking shiny and soft between trims is to make sure you have a soft pillowcase. Silk is the ideal candidate for this but pima or a very soft cotton can also be your best nighttime ally. They will help you and your hair as you get some much needed rest.
Parting It Right
Different hair types and even face types can make finding the right way to part your hair tricky. While a middle part is always a good choice, it may not always be the best choice for you. First, try to determine your face type and then try different parts like a side, deep side, and the classic middle to see what you feel the most comfortable with. Try taking selfies with different parts and see what you think looks best. It's always helpful to get a neutral third party or two involved, so get your friends or loved ones in on the action and have them take a vote. If you follow these easy tips then we know you'll definitely be feeling more comfortable and getting the most out of that gorgeous hair in no time!
