Hair is a crown for all women or most of the men. Hair can be an important support for the appearance of women and men. By having healthy, shiny and a hairstyle that matches the shape of your face, it will make your appearance look better and you will be more confident. Sometimes, just with healthy hair and an appropriate style, we can look different. Many of you want to have healthy and beautiful hair, but not all of you can have it.
To have healthy and beautiful hair, you have to take care of your hair properly so that you don’t regret it later. Maybe many of you have damaged hair even though you have done daily care at home and weekly care at a salon. Mistakes may be on you who are not right in managing the treatment schedule and ingredients that you use to treat your hair at home or salon. From the way you treat your hair, it can also be a cause of the hair damage you are experiencing right now.
Do you know that doing preparation before treatment in the wrong way can make your hair damaged and not absorb the benefits of the hair care that you give regularly?
Warm and Cold Water
Before washing and treating your hair, you should pay attention to what water you should use so that your hair and scalp are cleaner and absorb the full benefits. You can use warm water to wet your hair before washing it and doing a hair treatment. Benefits: when we use warm water, the scalp pores will be opened up and the dirt on the scalp and hair roots will be cleaned more efficiently. As is stated in the Hair Salon Gold Coast blog, washing your hair with cold and warm water will make your hair healthier. It will cleanse dandruff and excess oil, promote blood circulation and oxygen in the head, and make your hair stronger. Use cold water to rinse your hair and scalp after washing it and doing any hair treatment. Benefits: it closes the scalp pores after the usage of warm water and refreshes the scalp and the hair. It’s calming and moisturizing the scalp and the hair. Also, try to rub ice cubes on the scalp to make the scalp healthier.
Combing and Washing Hair
Watch how you comb and wash your hair because the wrong way can damage your hair. Combing your hair incorrectly can make your hair dry and fall out. The right time to comb your hair is before and after sleeping, use the right hairbrush for your hair and do it before washing your hair. Avoid brushing your hair when it still wet. Don’t wash your hair too often, just do it at least twice a week and use shampoo and conditioner according to your hair needs. The right way: pour shampoo and conditioner on your hair, avoid to pour it on the scalp. Massage the scalp and use a warm towel to wrap your hair after you put the conditioner and let it for a few minutes.
Drying and Binding Hair
Why does the hair remain dull and fall out even though you have done various treatments? Perhaps this is because you are drying and binding your hair incorrectly. Don’t use a hairdryer or other heat tool on your hair too often if you don’t want to cause split ends. The Right Way: Dry your hair using a towel and the sunshine, rub your hair using a towel and shake it or brush it with your fingers. Don’t wrap your hair using a towel for too long or sleep when your hair is still wet. If you want to look neat and charming by tying your hair, it’s not wrong, but avoid to tie your hair tightly for a long time. The right way: don’t tie your hair too often, tie it loosely, and don’t use hair spray too often. Use hair vitamins and gels before tying your hair. Remember that your hair needs to move and breathe more freely.
