Hair can be accessorized in so many ways. Open, pony, straight, curl, puff etc so many ways to change your look with a change in your hair style. Hair styling does change your look in so many ways. For that you need to maintain your hair health. But, sometimes maintaining healthy hair is not that simple and easy as it gets really messy.
I think for the most part, we all want what we don’t have. My hair is pretty thin and flat, I wish I had more thick and bouncy hair. But I have started to accept my hair the way it is as with proper care I can do a lot with what I have.
Follow with me these 15 best ways to pamper your hair.
1. Focus till the End
Apart from people with dry scalp, most of us with oily scalp don’t need to use moisturize conditioner on our roots. Our scalp generates oil naturally every day, so adding extra oil can give a greasy look. The best way to use conditioner for oil hair is to apply only on the 3/4th length of your hair touching the tips and avoiding the roots.
2. Make your Bobby Pins Stick
While doing my hairdo, generally I use a lot of bobby pins and clips. For the first 15 minutes it manages to stay fine but later as I have a really silky and straight hair, my pins starts slipping. Then I came across this really helpful tip to make your bobby pins stay intact with extra grip so I don’t have to worry about my hair style falling out.
Spray out some dry shampoo, hair spray or quick spray over your bobby pins and let them dry completely before inserting them into your hair.
3. Massage Your Scalp
Massaging your scalp regularly helps stimulate your hair growth and enhance root strength. Take out some time from your schedule and massage your scalp regularly with or without oil. A proper oil massage also helps reduce stress and relieves pain by improving circulation.
4. Wooden Wide Bristle Comb
Make a habit of using wooden wide soft bristle comb to protect your scalp from getting hurt. After washing your hair, use a wide-tooth comb to get those tangles out instead. The comb doesn’t tug and pull at your hair like a regular brush, so it safely and easily removes tangles with less damage.
5. Fake a long Pony Tail
6. Spin A Pin
If you like putting your hair up in bun, then give this “spin a pin” a try. Instead of using a dozen pins, use just two pins to hold up your hair.
7. Quick Hair Do
Instead of washing, drying and styling my hair, I just give my bangs a quick spray and then use a hair dryer and round brush to make them as good as new.
8. Brush before Wash
To reduce hair fall while you shower, brush before you wash, especially if you are prone to tangles.
9. No-Heat Curls
Using heat curlers cause damage to our hair. To curl your hair naturally, shampoo your hair a night before and sleep with your wet hair tucked in and around a hair band.
10. Camouflage Your Roots
Spray your hair with dry shampoo, and then style your hair with a messy side part. Just zig-zag your part a bit with a fine-tooth comb to help conceal those roots until your next hair appointment.
11. Settle that Small Hair
To settle those small hairs that won’t stay down, take your old tooth brush and spray it with hairspray. Now target those small standing hair with the tooth brush without stiffening your entire style.
12. Give some Time
After combing your hair out of the shower, apply your products right away and let them absorb into your strands for about 10 minutes before you break out your hair dryer and other various styling tools.
13. Get Rid of Split Ends
Hair is made up of a protein called keratin, so be sure to include plenty of protein in your diet to prevent the ends from splitting in the first place.
Mix together one egg yolk, 3 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tbsp of honey. Let this mixture sit on your ends for at least an hour before washing, and repeat every couple of weeks.
14. Right Type of Brush
- Paddle — A paddle brush is the most versatile brush, but it is especially helpful if you have long and/or thick hair. It can manage a lot of hair all at once and smoothes it down for a sleeker look.
- Wide-Tooth Comb —These combs are ideal for combing tangles out of wet hair without causing any damage.
- Fine-Tooth Comb — these combs are great for teasing, creating a nice straight part, and for detailed grooming.
- Thermal — these brushes work with your dryer, locking in heat. They create a faster drying time and allow you to easily curl and smooth your hair under.
- Boar Bristled — These bristles are gentle and redistribute oils throughout your hair, bringing out its natural shine.
- Skinny Round — This brush is great for bangs or short hair. It smoothes your hair while drying and helps manage shorter pieces of hair.
- Large Round — This brush can straighten or curl your hair while drying, depending on how you use it. A larger round brush is ideal for creating volume to otherwise flat hair.
- Half Radial — This brush is perfect for shorter styles such as a bob when you like to have your hair curved up or under on the ends.
- Vented — These brushes are ideal when blow drying your hair because they provide an apple amount of air flow and help create volume.
15. Silk Pillow Case
Not only is it better for your skin, but it does wonders for your hair! Cotton robs your hair of moisture, is more likely to cause bed head, and is much harsher on your hair, causing damage and split ends.
