Despite a great cut and expensive products, there always comes a time when you feel your hair betrayed you.  If you want to increase your odds of having better hair days, then there are some simple tricks that you can do that really help to beautify it.

The first rule that should keep in mind involves shampooing. Whatever you do, you must avoid washing the hair in water that is overly hot since hair can become dry just as much as the skin. Another reason is it will make the hair absorb too much of your hair styling products that you later follow with, only leaving the strands greasy and weighed down. Instead, make it a habit to use just warm water.  

Just as important is how much and how you shampoo.  Using too much is not necessary and can only dull your hair or cause tangling from insufficient rinsing or over vigorous scrubbing.  Nothing is worse when you have a habit of rubbing the hair too hard than when concentrating on the ends, which are already vulnerable. Doing this will make them brittle.  Gently massage the shampoo on the scalp is enough to do the job without abusing the hair.

After shampooing, you always want to make sure to rinse with cool water because it helps give the hair more gloss.  This works because the cooler water temperature makes the hair cuticle lie flat, resulting in added shine.

How you handle a towel to dry your hair after washing might need to change.  Wet hair is at its weakest. Therefore, if you don’t want to damage it, then don’t rub the towel in your hair, but try to blot.

On the same note, the placement of hair products can have a lot to do with how your hair looks and will behave.  You never want to apply a conditioner, gel, mousse, pomade, wax, or other hair styling product to the scalp or you might risk clogging the pores.  Your goal is to keep those products just on the hair. Otherwise, you can be in for flaking.

What else that helps the hair thrive is massaging your scalp. Devote a minute or two before bed to do this for yourself really helps keep the hair healthy.  This is a wonderful way to stimulate the follicles and increase the blood flow to the roots of the hair.

Sometimes, it doesn’t take much for something beautiful to happen.  Often, a small change in your beauty routine can make all the difference.  I hope with the hair tips that I shared that you will find it true too.
