One of the first things people notice about you is your appearance. Particularly for women, looks reflect a lot of your personality. Make sure that you can give off the message that you wish, when you get ready each day using these hair care tips. 

13 Hair Care Tips for Healthy Stronger Hair | Naturally Stellar

Below are 13 Hair Care Tips To Get You Started

  1. If you have really dried out and damaged hair, try olive oil. Use it at a time when you won’t be going out. All you have to do is apply the oil in downward strokes to the length of your hair and let it sit overnight. Olive oil will give your hair much-needed nutrients and restore its luster.
  1. Comb your conditioner through your hair with a wide-toothed comb when you are applying a conditioning treatment. This will ensure the product is spread throughout your hair evenly, while removing any tangles you may have at the same time.
  1. Hair loves to be natural, so if you want a stronger, fuller head of hair, try not to use too many hair styling tools. For example, those curling irons, rollers, and other appliances can really damage your hair more than strengthen it. Periodically, don’t heat your hair and give it a rest!
  1. Ignore the myth that trimming makes your hair grow quicker. Your hair will grow about a half-inch each month regardless of the number of trims. You may see slightly faster growth in summer, or if you take biotin supplements, but it’s hormones that control growth, not your stylist’s scissors. A good trim will get rid of any split ends and improve your hair’s appearance.
  1. If you have hard water at home, avoid the use of highly lathering shampoos. Hard water makes it difficult to rinse your hair well and the build-up of the shampoo in your hair can make your scalp itchy, dry and scaly. No and low-lather shampoos are available, especially in areas where hard water is commonplace.
  1. Only wash your hair as often as you think it needs to be washed. Everyone’s hair is different, but a good way to go about it is to wash it and condition it every week.

  1. In order to properly care for your hair, it is crucial that you eat a healthy diet. Be sure your diet includes plenty of green vegetables, fruits, carrots, and dairy products. These foods contain nutrients that create healthier cells. These cells help to make your hair healthier and smooth.
  1. Stress is one of the worst things for your body, hair and scalp, so you should try to reduce it at all costs. Stress can cause dandruff and facilitate the graying process. Eliminate stress and triggers of stress to feel and look great during the day.
  1. If regular conditioners leave your hair feeling greasy or limp, consider switching to a lightweight leave-in conditioner. These formulas are available as both, light lotions and sprays, and they tend to be much lighter than the moisture-heavy versions you use in the shower. Look for a leave-in that matches your hair type, such as color-protection sprays or anti-frizz sprays.
  1. Use leave in conditioner on your hair on a regular basis. This is particularly useful for those who have dry and brittle hair. Using a leave in conditioner is equivalent to using a daily moisturizer on the face. It will help keep your hair healthy and replenished and prevent damage.

 

  1. Wait two days before shampooing newly dyed hair. To keep your hair color looking rich and bright, you need to give your hair cuticles time to properly seal after dying it. Be sure to try to not even let your hair get wet during this time period. If you follow this advice, you will be treated to healthy, vibrant hair.
  1. Don’t use bleach on your hair. While bleach can give you great sun-kissed highlights, it also wreaks havoc with your hair structure and makes it dry and brittle. When your hair is dry and brittle, it will break easily and will be difficult to brush. Even the most expensive hair conditioners can’t revive bleach-damaged hair.
  1. Wearing a swim cap when swimming may make you feel silly, but it is going to play a big role in how healthy your hair is. If you swim on a regular basis, you must be sure to wear a swim cap; otherwise, the chlorine will damage your hair more than you could think.

Remember that doing whatever makes you feel comfortable is the most important thing when it comes to your appearance. However, instead of putting all of your worth into your appearance, realize that you’re allowed to have a bad hair day.
