Chances are you take great pride in your hair—and that means you probably try to do everything in your power to keep your hair looking its most beautiful. The good news is that there are 5 hair hacks you can add to your hair care routine to help keep your strands in shape.
HAIR HACK #1: WASH YOUR HAIR IN LUKEWARM TEMPS
Steamy showers might feel really good—especially on a cold day—but they’re really not that great for your hair. Super-hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, making it feel dry. That said, lower the dial and opt for bathing in lukewarm temps instead. Your hair will thank you.
HAIR HACK #2: COMB YOUR HAIR BEFORE SHAMPOOING
It’s not the best idea to brush your hair when it’s wet because that’s when it’s at its most fragile. But what can you do if your hair tends to get knotty? Help get rid of tangles by gently combing dry hair before you shampoo.
HAIR HACK #3: INVEST IN A SILK PILLOWCASE
It’s time to get fancy because silk pillowcases are super soft and, well, silky, they can help to keep your hairstyle from getting messed up while you sleep. Be sure to treat yourself and invest in a great silk pillowcase!
HAIR HACK #4: ONLY CONDITION YOUR ENDS
Yes, it turns out there is actually a right way to use a conditioner! When conditioning, focus mainly on your lengths and ends. Avoid your scalp area when applying conditioner, because this can cause your hair to look greasy.
HAIR HACK #5: USE A TOOTHBRUSH TO HELP TAME FLYAWAYS
This next hack may sound strange, but it can actually work to help tame flyaways! Take an unused toothbrush and spray it with a little bit of hair spray. Then, use the toothbrush to gently comb back any flyaways.
