Long, short, fair, dark, our hair is often the first thing another person notices about us. Hair is a vital component of who we are and there are many ways that we can ensure it always looks its best. The first step is finding the right products. There are many on the market and the choice can be somewhat daunting. Many of us find one we like and stick to it, surprisingly this can have a detrimental effect as you can get what is called a product build up. It is recommended that we introduce a new shampoo and conditioner every couple of months. You can go back to your old favorite, but your hair needs a break.
Although it should be common sense, many of us still buy shampoo for the wrong hair type. Different cycles of our lives, such as menstruation, pregnancy and the menopause, can affect our hair greatly, and you must change your products accordingly. If you have always had greasy hair then bleach it, this will dry it out, and continuing to use the same shampoo will leave you walking around with hair that resembles a hay stack!
As well as our skin and nails, our diet greatly affects our hair. Eating healthily and drinking lots of water will keep our hair strong, healthy and manageable. Whilst we would all love to have hair with a lustrous shine, it is something few of us are naturally blessed with. Rinsing your hair with lemon juice is renowned for leaving a shine, but hair that has been greatly lightened or bleached will never have the shine of a natural color. If this is your hair, you must keep it in the best condition possible and have it trimmed regularly. Regular, deep conditioning can give it an attractive sheen.
Be honest about your hair type. Many of us are in denial, and thing we have the hair that we want, rather than what we actually have. However good your hairdresser is, if you have fine, flyaway hair you are never going to be able to have the style of your favorite actress if her hair is thick and full of volume. There are styles to suit every kind of hair, so don’t make unrealistic demands of your stylist then criticize her to everyone when you don’t get what you want. The same principal applies when in comes to the shape of your face. You may be desperate for a very short, elfin cut, but if you have a large round face this is a big mistake and you will end up looking butch. There are many sites online now where you can superimpose different styles over a photo of yourself, and if more people took advantage of these there wouldn’t be so many hair disasters walking around.
Your hair is one of your most outstanding natural features, so take the best care of it that is possible. Get a cut that suits you take heed of the advice above, if you don’t, you only have yourself to blame when your bad hair day becomes permanent!
