Useful tips for washing your hair
No matter how paradoxical it may sound, but washing your hair, first of all, is not aimed at maintaining the aesthetic appearance of the strands, but at maintaining their health. It is in vain to believe that the less often you resort to this procedure, the more beautiful and healthier your curls will be. Since not only the strands, but also the scalp itself needs regular cleansing and care.
Every day, the layer of the epidermis secretes about 2 grams of sebum, if you add to this figure the plaque from the use of sprays, mousses and hairsprays, then we get a very impressive plaque on the head. Do not ignore external factors-every day on the skin and curls settle pollutants and dust.
The result is "fatigue" of the hair, their sluggish appearance, split ends, thinning strands. Without proper care, the curls look lifeless and sluggish, they become unruly, and increased hair loss begins. All this can be avoided if you know how to wash your hair properly.
Proper care of the strands is impossible to imagine without the use of balms and conditioners. They help to smooth out the scales of the curls, normalize the work of the sebaceous glands, make the curls softer and more manageable. You should also use the following tools:
All of them are used after washing your hair. Some types do not need to be washed off. They are applied to the dried strands.
It is necessary to comb the strands, but it is strictly forbidden to do this on wet curls. Under the weight of water, they easily fall out and break. For combing, choose smooth combs, not combs. The best option is a wooden comb that bends easily and does not scratch the epidermis of the head.
A valid option is brushes made of natural bristles. It is recommended to use them with increased loss of curls. Please note that combs can also collect grease and dirt, transferring them to the curls after washing. Therefore, clean them from time to time with a solution of alcohol.
Long strands should begin to comb from the tips, gradually moving to the roots. If you have short hair, then the pattern of movement of the comb will be reversed – from the roots to the tips. If during washing the curls are too tangled, then first you need to divide them into small strands and start scratching from the periphery to the center.
Next is the question of drying the hair. Let the strands dry naturally, or use terry towels to speed up the process. To do this, take a high-quality towel, preheated on the batteries. Wrap them around the curls, tilting your head down, and start rubbing. The towel will absorb excess moisture and allow the hair to dry much faster.
Use a hair dryer only in emergency cases, as thermal exposure leads to damage to the strands, they become dry and easily damaged. The best option is to use the cold mode of the hair dryer. You should also use various oils and sprays that will protect your hair from the effects of temperatures.
