Taking care of your hair doesn’t have to mean spending a lot of money, or investing a lot of time, either. Modern life is really stressful for your body, skin and hair. We are exposed to so many harsh chemicals and toxins that can dry out your skin and hair. In addition, if you style your hair, you will find that the heat of the dryer, curlers, straighteners and other tools are damaging your hair – and are likely to cause split ends.
So, what can you do about that sort of thing? Well, you will find that making a few simple changes to your day to day hair care habits could make all the difference.
It’s a good idea to wash your hair regularly, and using a high quality, nourishing shampoo will make all the difference, but, instead of using a hair dryer, dry your hair with a towel by blotting it and slowly rubbing it, instead of by vigorously rubbing it.
If you want to nourish your hair, use aloe vera or coconut oil. A couple of drops of oil combed through your hair is all you need. Wrap your hair in a towel after applying the oil, and leave it on overnight, then rinse the oil out of your hair afterwards. The oil will nourish the hair and help to keep it looking soft and lush, instead of dry and flakey.
Try not to dye your hair often. Instead of using commercial hair dyes at home, go to a salon and get your hair done properly. You will need fewer applications, they will last longer, and they will do far less damage to your hair so it will be worth it in the long run – both financially and hair health-wise.
