No matter if you have short or long hair, dark or blond, are a man or a woman, your hair is special. A bad hair day can definitely ruin my day. How sad… I know! But that’s why I’d like to share 3 simple hair tips with you that you can easily use every day!
First hair tip: Keep your hair well cared for by making your own hair mask.
My first hair tip for you is to keep your hair well cared for. Use quality hair products for washing and styling and try to spare it as much as possible from heating products like straighteners and curling irons.
Then, give your hair a nice treatment with a good hair mask. That way it will get a lot of care and moisture. In my home spa article, I talk more in-depth about this.
It is so easy and that way, you can avoid harmful chemicals by using natural ingredients. For example a mixture of coconut oil and olive oil! In other words, you knowexactly what you’re hair is getting.
It’s important to use the right hairbrush!
My second hair tip is regarding hair brushes. It probably won’t come as a surprise, but it can do more harm than good using the wrong brush for your hair. You can damage the strands of your hair, but also your scalp.
You should therefore search for the right brush that is suitable for your specific hair. Choose a hairbrush depending on if you have fine or thick hair, straight or curly, and so on.
I myself have very fine hair which naturally falls straight. For that reason, I use a round brush, as to my experience it gives some volume to my hair. Especially if you also use it when you blow-dry your hair. Though be careful not to always do that, as it can also damage your hair.
A small tip is to pay that little extra for your hairbrush and find one with natural wild boar bristles. It helps to spread your natural oils in your hair. My favorite is Boar Bristle Round Brush from Moroccanoil. The quality is great! I’ve had it for over a year, and it’s still as good as new.
Useful hair tips for the night
There are several things to think about before you go to bed in terms of your hair. One of the more well-known hair tips is that you should never go to bed with your hair wet. Otherwise, it will be damaged and more likely to break.
The fact is that if you go to bed with wet hair, it is more likely to be matted. And that is the factor that can trigger the damaged and broken hair strands. So try to go to bed with as dry hair as possible.
Another hair tip that was new to me is that you should consider sleeping with a satin sheet instead of a cotton one. Not only will it benefit your hair but also your face. Cotton will absorb moisture in your hair, and it can therefore become dry and frizzy. Since satin also has a smoother surface, it wears less on both hair and face.
