No matter what products you love, what hair type you have, or how much time is on your hands, these are 8 hair care tips you need to know.
I don’t always have a great hair day, but when I do, I feel like a freshly groomed Shetland show pony. Case in point here.
So, in honor of giving women everywhere the joyful feeling of more great hair days (coastal pony or not), I’m sharing 8 hair care tips you probably didn’t know about.
The best part is that these tips just so happen to work no matter what products you use and on all kinds of hair types, so there’s something for everyone.
As for the tips, let’s get to the list…
8 Hair Care Tips You Probably Didn’t Know About
1 — Brush and detangle your hair before shampooing and conditioning so that the product reaches all areas of your hair.
2 — Clean your hair utensils at least once a month to avoid product build up.
3 — When you’re letting your hair air dry, massage the roots of your hair after towel drying for more volume so that it doesn’t dry flat to your scalp.
4 — Only condition your hair from the mid-shaft down to the tips of your hair and be sure to let the conditioner set for at least 60 seconds before rinsing.
5 — Wring your wet hair out in the shower before using conditioner so that it’s able to absorb better.
6 — Only brush wet hair gently with a wide tooth comb, starting at the ends moving up to the roots.
7 — If you have notoriously dry hair, only shampoo your scalp down to mid-shaft, not the ends of your hair.
8 — To fill an inconsistent hairline (I’m looking at you postpartum hair wings!!), use an eyeshadow that’s the same color of your root hair for a stronger hairline.
Do ya’ll have any hair care tips to share with me that weren’t on the list? Don’t hold out! I feel like I’ve maybe been living in a cave. Haha!
