best hair styling

There have always been good hair days and bad hair days. The basic difference is that the latter often happens after the pros have had a go at your hair! That’s not surprising as they have the benefit of the full range of motion of their arms, better view of your scalp and lots of tricks up their sleeve.

Luckily, the tricks are no secret and here are several things you can do just like pro hairstylists to have your hair look healthier, curls springier and waves bouncier.

Reconsider the way you wash your hair

There’s always been a debate as to how often you should be washing your hair. According to the latest industry reports, less is more. Over-washing can damage your hair, particularly if it’s dyed, bleached or chemically treated, even if it’s simply naturally very porous and dry. Daily shampooing washes away the natural oils and proteins needed for your hair and scalp to be healthy, so it’s best you limit hair washing to three times a week at most, if possible.

Also, make sure you concentrate the shampoo on the scalp. Washing only your hair lengths and ends can remove moisture and cause your hair to lose its shine.

Condition your hair correctly

Chances are you regularly use the conditioner, but the question is if you are using it correctly. Remember that the hair tends to get greasy at the roots so you should apply conditioner only on certain sections of your hair, typically from mid-lengths to ends. Conditioning at the roots can weigh your hair down. The best way to apply conditioner correctly would be by distributing it through your hair with a wide-tooth comb. This will also help detangle your hair. Finally, just before you’re ready to get out of the shower, rinse your hair thoroughly to remove any product residue as it will leave you with build-up. 

Choose hair products based on hair thickness

The basis for healthy, great-looking hair starts with a shampoo and conditioner suited for your hair type. It’s important to remember that different hair types have different needs. For instance, someone with fine, thin, straight hair should use more lightweight formulas like sprays and mists since using heavy conditioners may weigh hair down. On the other hand, someone with thick, curly hair would benefit from richer oils and thick creams without any worry that it may weigh the hair down. Choosing the right hair products will ensure proper care and good health for your hair. 

Boost volume by teasing

If you have fine hair, good hair products aren’t enough to give you a more lasting boost. You’ll need a bit more time, commitment and skill. Here’s the trick teasing and extensions. Firstly, never tease your hair starting at the end, and working the comb up and down. You should rather start at the mid-shaft and work the comb down to the roots. Pull it out and repeat the procedure. Then, comb the hair you previously swept aside over the teased bump to produce a voluminous lift.

And, if you want to go for a more enhanced look, consider boosting your hair volume with practical ponytail extensions – that will certainly make your hair look puffed up and glamorous.

Protect your hair before heat styling

We all adore the way our hair looks immediately after a blowout and a heat styling session, but too much heat can do harm to your hair. No one says you should abandon your hot tools, but rather that you should make one small adjustment when you’re about to use heat to style.

You should never skip applying a protective product first. Spray on a heat protectant before you start any heat treatment, be it blow-drying, curling or straightening your hair. In that way, you will ensure no heat damage would ever happen.

Blow-dry with a brush

Blow-drying your hair may often feel like too much work or too hard to master, but you can make things easier by adding a round brush into the mix. Keep brushing your hair in the same direction you’re blow-drying and use the brush to straighten your hair and get smoother results. And, if all you want is to prevent a frizz, make sure you’re moving your blow-dryer from roots to ends and not the other way round.

Whatever your preferred hairstyle may be, texture and colour as well, we all just want our hair to look as if done by a professional. Luckily, with the tips listed here, you can actually achieve your dream look hassle-free!
