Tip: Wash Your Hair Properly
You may not have realized that there is a “right” way to wash your hair, but there is. In order to maintain healthy and shiny hair, it all starts in the shower. There is a right way and a wrong way of washing your hair and we are going to teach you the right way. Most of us get a large dollop of shampoo and cover all of our hair to wash it. That’s the wrong way to do it. But don’t fret, we’ve all been there. Actually, if you were to just wash your scalp, that’s the right way to do it. That’s where you are going to find most of the dirt and oil buildup in the hair.
When you are shampooing your scalp, it’s important to just use the tips of your fingers and not your nails. This little massage will help you to not only detoxify your scalp but also encourage blood circulation in the head. When it comes to conditioner, you are just going to use it on the ends of your hair to prevent dryness and to restore moisture in your hair.
Washing your hair in cool water is also the best thing you can do for your hair, especially if you color your hair. Using hot water will dry out your hair as well as your scalp. If your hair is dry, then it will tangle easier, causing breakage to occur in your hair.

Tip: Use A Low Heat Setting on Your Hair Dryer
It can be tempting to blast your hairdryer on high, especially if you are in a hurry. You just want to get your hair dry so that you can get on with your day. But if you are always using high heat settings on your hair dryer, then you are causing more damage than necessary for your hair. Overheating your hair is going to damage it especially if you blow dry your hair a lot. Always use a heat protectant before you blow dry and try to dry your hair on a low heat setting.
Another good practice is to point your hair dryer down when drying your hair. Don’t use your hair dryer close to your hair, keep some distance between the hair dryer and your hair. Two inches is a good practice so that you aren’t overheating your hair. If you typically dry your hair from the side, the try to point in downwards next time. Your hair will become less frizzy that way. Point your hairdryer straight down and for best results, you should keep it about three inches away from your hair.

If you are someone that washes your hair once or twice a day, then you might want to simmer down. We all have natural oils in our hair that keep it healthy and shiny. But if you are shampooing your hair every day, the you are stripping all those natural oils out of your hair. Then you have to add oils back into your hair just to make it look healthy again.

That might make you freak out a little, but that’s the best way to keep your hair healthy. You can still shower, just put your hair up and out of the way.
