Celebrity stylist hair care tips
Tip 1: Condition The Right Way
Conditioning needs to be done right. Conditioners are formulated to seal in the moisture content in the hair shaft. They are not meant for the scalp. Start conditioning about 2 inches away from your scalp. Too much conditioner on the scalp will only make your scalp excessively oily.
Tip 2: Use Same Line Shampoo & Conditioner
Choose a shampoo and a conditioner from the same line as it has a similar formulation. These are made for a specific hair type and a specific purpose. It shows better results when you use a single line instead of two individual products.
Tip 3: Don’t Over Apply Heat On Hair
Avoid using heat on your hair. Heat further strips the moisture content from your hair making it dry and frizzy. When overused, it can also burn your hair. Use iron/curl, straighteners only if necessary and remember to use a hair protectant before!
Tip 4: Avoid Tight Hair Ties
Avoid using super tight hair ties; instead, opt for scrunchies with cloth around them. Tight hair ties tend to pull your hair back real tight which increases friction. This can cause breakage.
Tip 5: Don’t Braid Tightly During Bedtime
When you go to bed at night, loosely braid your hair to avoid a frizzy mess, a side braid is a better option. Leaving your hair open tends to create knots, which means you need to subject it to pulling and brushing in the morning. Over brushing results in the frizziness.
Tip 6: Cold Water Is Good For Hair
Use cold water to wash your hair. Yes, our parents scream at us for it will probably make us sick but hot water affects hair the same way as heat styling methods do. Cold doesn’t exactly mean freezing cold, but you can use water at room temperature instead.
Tip 7: Don’t Use Too Many Products
Avoid using too many products on your hair. Of course, there are certain products that you absolutely must use, like shampoo, conditioner, and serum, but try and avoid bottled hair products as much as possible.
