The Best Ways To Achieve Healthier & More Luscious Hair
Does your hair never look as healthy as you would like it to? Maybe it takes ages to style because it isn’t as long or luscious as you would like it to be? Perhaps you’ve tried everything that you can think of to give it a health boost with no luck? A lot of us wish our hair looked and felt better, but thanks to dryness, split ends and lack of shine, we don’t feel confident about it.
Luscious hair is just few steps away so, read on. The good news is that when it comes to hair health, it’s something that’s relatively easy to fix. So no matter what condition your hair is in, don’t stress, I’ve got you covered. For all the best tips and tricks for making your hair healthier and more luscious, have a read below. Hopefully, by implementing these tips, you can give your hair the boost it needs.
Beat dry, brittle hair
Dry hair can be caused by all sorts of things, from over dying it to how you style it. For instance, if you use a straightening or curling iron, your hair is three times as likely to be dry than someone who doesn’t use heat on their hair. Heat protection sprays do help, but they don’t give the hair complete protection.
To prevent dry, brittle hair, place a bowl of warm water in the room where you sleep. The air will evaporate the water, making it less drying. There’s a tip that you probably haven’t heard before! A good conditioner is also a must, or better yet – a leave-in conditioning mask. You could also invest in a conditioning spray that you can use to spritz your hair whenever it feels dry. Argan oil works wonders on dry hair – the masks are fantastic.
Increase hair growth
Does your hair grow slowly? Have you noticed that even when it does grow it comes through fine instead of thick and luscious? Don’t stress, you’re not starting to go bald – I know you’ve thought it, your hair just needs a boost, that’s all. Once your hair gets the nourishment that it needs, you’ll soon see a difference in the growth, as well as the general health, of your hair.
To increase hair growth and encourage your hair to grow thicker, it needs the right nourishment. Various studies have shown that lavender oil, and products containing it, can have fantastic results on hair. It helps to keep the scalp healthy, which in turns boost the health of the hair follicles and encourages hair growth. You can apply lavender oil directly to your scalp, or you can use a lavender shampoo or hair mask.
Wave goodbye to split ends for good
Split ends can be a nightmare. Once you notice one split end, all of a sudden more start to appear. The main causes of split ends are using heat on your hair, skipping conditioner, and changing your hair colour too often. The most common cause, however, is not having your hair trimmed regularly. If you go too long between hair appointments, your hair ends up splitting.
Hair that is split will slowly move further up the strand until the whole piece is split. The best thing to do is stop the damage with a haircut – to beat split ends, any hairs that have split need to be removed. Ask your hairstylist to trim your split ends, so that your hair is healthy again. If your splits are too far up the strands to be removed, it’s best to use a nourishing treatment that seals split ends. This is only a temporary fix, but it will help your hair to look and feel healthier.
So there you have it, the best ways to achieve healthier and more luscious hair.
