Read this guide for both men and women on how to get a consistently great hair up there
Nothing gets a wow factor like great hair. You only get one chance to make a first impression so we want to make sure you knock ’em dead. Hair is part of your brand and how you style it needs to reflect your personality.
Psychologists say it can take a split second to decide if you find a face attractive or not, and that includes your hair. Make every day a great hair day. Let’s make that date a success with our five top tips that’ll give your hair the boost it needs.
1. Make Conditioner Your Best Friend
Massage your scalp with shampoo for about 40 seconds before washing it out. Next, the important bit: put a little conditioner into your hand and smooth it in from the tips of your hair to the roots. Wash your hair on a comfortable cool setting. This locks in the hair cuticles and holds in moisture, leaving your hair beautifully shiny.
Give your hair some special treatment occasionally. Treating it with some special therapeutic products can help to enhance your hair’s health. Once a week, go for a ‘leave in’ conditioner after you shower. This will help make your hair softer and more manageable.
2. Brushing Your Hair
It’s always better not to brush your hair when it’s wet. Drier hair tends to break less easily. Try to only ever use a wide-tooth comb on wet hair.
Only use natural bristle brushes as these will spread oils evenly throughout your hair to ensure it’s softer and shinier. They’ll also increase the scalp’s blood circulation. Synthetic bristles can create friction and can actually damage hair.
3. Blow Drying Your Hair
When using a blow drier, use a cool setting. If the setting is high then the water in your hair can heat up and damage your hair. It’s important that your hair is dried by having air blown through it rather than by being heated.
Try not to wring your hair out with a towel after you get out of the bath or shower. Wet hair is more delicate, and wringing it may cause strands of hair to break or fall out.
4. A Healthy Lifestyle Makes Great Hair
Keeping stress out of your life and eating healthy foods will keep your hair strong and beautiful. The right diet can also stop hair loss. Essential fatty acids, like omega-3, promote healthy hair. You should eat foods rich in omega-3 regularly.
Protein also promotes healthy hair. Incorporate a daily serving of grilled fish, chicken, or soy into your diet.
5. Caring for Thinning Hair
Try out an over the counter hair regrowth product. You may also want to talk to your doctor about a prescription. It’s possible to disguise thin spots by using a specialist conditioner and putting a drop styling gel over the area.
Getting an FUE hair transplant may sound drastic but they don’t have to be painful and can be extremely effective.
Look After Your Hair Every Day
Hair is just like every other part of your body. You need to look after it to keep it healthy and looking its best.
