We all envy those models in hair product advertisements with the perfect, luscious locks of thick hair. Most of it is Photoshop but a woman (or man) can dream, right? If you want naturally healthy hair, there are some simple things you need to take care of.
Can I Make My Hair Thicker?
Hate to rain on your parade but if you have naturally thin hair you’re probably not going to get the thick hair you’re looking for. Hold up – that’s not the problem.
If you have thin or thick hair, that’s because it’s in your genes. But neither of those categories can qualify your hair as automatically healthy. Whether it’s thick or thin, you need to take care of your hair to keep them healthy.
Cut Back On the Washing
Unfortunately, your favorite brand of shampoo or conditioner can be your hair’s worst enemy. If you really want to keep your hair from damaging, don’t wash your hair every day. In fact, once or twice a week is fine as long as you can use a dry shampoo to make the oily, slick look go away.
When you do wash your hair, make sure you wash it in a medium heat to cold water. Also, drying your hair with a towel is never a good option. Let your hair dry naturally or if you’re too much of a water phobic, then simply pat a clean cotton cloth on your hair.
Regularly Trim Those Split Ends
Allowing you hair to grow naturally and unattended can result in the formation of split ends. These split ends not only make your hair look thinner and ashier from the ends, but they also restrict further growth of normal hair.
Rule of thumb: trim your hair (or get them trimmed from a hair salon) once a month.
Steer Clear of the Heat
While occasionally using a hair dryer or a straightener won’t damage your hair, using these products too much can definitely bleach out the color and even burn your hair. So cut back on the heat if you really want to protect your hair.
Use Essential Oils Frequently
Oils like Coconut and Olive Oil are great for the hair. I’d recommend a good massage to get the blood flowing in your scalp along with the oil treatment. Keep your hair oiled overnight for the best results.
Pampering your hair takes time and patience but in the long run, it’s all worth it. Forget dry, dull hair and start grooming it now to get that flawless supermodel look. Got questions or want to come by for a visit? Come see Purity Hair Design, we are your number one Aveda salon in Albany!
