How to take care of long hair

The tips below will help you give your hair a good start.

1. Air-dry hair as much as possible

When you air-dry, the cold air and heat shrink the cuticle of the hair shaft to allow in more moisture. The result is a smoother cuticle and the shiny, bouncy hair that you crave. However, when air-drying, you will definitely need to use a diffuser or a hair blow-dryer to get the end result.

2. Use a new conditioner every time

This is especially important if you are using a very cheap conditioner that dries out your hair rather quickly. Your hair needs hydration, which only conditioner can provide.

3. Never blow-dry your hair

There are many things that can destroy your hair at this point. Like overuse of styling products, which can cause static in your hair, and overuse of hair dryers. Also, bad hair days are never a good look! Blow your hair dry every once in a while. Use a round brush to distribute the excess hair. Also, always keep your hair tousled.

4. Deep condition your hair every six weeks

Deep conditioning your hair, either with a shampoo, an oil or a cream, will help fight frizz and dryness. To do this, use your hair-conditioner and massage it into your hair, then leave it in for two to three minutes. Your hair is usually tired after three minutes, so you should stop at two minutes. It will definitely help your hair stay in tip-top shape.

5. Frequent oiling is always a good idea

Suffering from dry hair? Use oil regularly to repair the damaged hair. This will keep your hair supple and moisturized. Use olive oil, coconut oil, or even sunflower oil, or shea butter to keep your hair smooth and soft.

6. Don’t use heat styling appliances too often

There are two types of heat styling: styling hot irons and flat irons. These heat styling appliances are not good for the hair. Your hair becomes dehydrated due to them and the dead hair on the ends tends to give your hair a negative tone. Also, keep your hair untangled from the heat styling appliances.

7. Never cut your hair while wet

Yes, that really does hurt your hair. Never cut your hair while your hair is wet. The lack of oxygen leads to the oxidative process of breaking down hair and results in dull, lifeless hair. Also, the lack of moisture causes the cuticle to be damaged.

8. Brush your hair at least two to three times a day

Brushing your hair is very important. You should not brush your hair when it’s wet. The dryness of the hair causes the cuticle to get slippery, causing damage. Brush your hair when your hair is dry, which is when the hair is thick and full.

9. Regularly wash your hair with a mild shampoo

Keep it in your hair and do not shampoo it daily. Regularly washing your hair with a mild shampoo will keep it in good condition. You should only shampoo your hair once every three to four days.

10. Don’t sleep on your hair

If you want to achieve silky hair, sleep with your hair. The sleep will help you detangle the knots in your hair. Also, try a silk pillowcase to prevent breakage from your hair strands.

11. Go for healthy hair

There are many different factors that affect your hair’s health and you need to take care of your hair to prevent it from falling apart. It is important that you do not forget to eat right. Your hair will be in good health if you maintain a healthy weight and eat the right food. Eat a balanced diet of fruits, vegetables, eggs, nuts, dairy and whole grains.
