This is the second post on how to keep your hair beautiful and shiny with simple care.
Combing your hair
2.1 - Apply leave-in conditioning while the wires are wet.
If your hair is dry, it may get a little lifeless after it has dried. Use a good leave-in conditioner to make them less dry and opaque. While still wet, apply a portion the size of a 25-cent coin of the product. Using a comb, scatter to the ends.
2.2 - Let them air dry.
Of course a brush can make them soft and shiny at first. However, after a while, doing brush constantly will damage them and leave them looking opaque and rough. By letting them air dry, there is no risk of damaging it. After a few weeks or months, you will begin to notice the difference in texture: they will be softer and brighter.
Avoid as much heat as possible to stylize your hair. Little girls, baby liss and others can give a beautiful result temporarily, but with prolonged use, they leave the hair lifeless.
2.3 - Use a finishing oil.
As soon as they dry naturally, gently spread the finishing oil through the wicks. A good product will give instant shine and protect wires from damage. Wait until they are dry for a better result. A little is enough, so do not use more than a portion the size of a dime, depending on the length of your hair. It is possible to buy a special hair oil, or use one of these oils listed below as a finisher:
Olive oil, Argan oil, Almond oil, Jojoba oil, Castor oil, Coconut oil, Acai oil
2.4 - Try a serum to give shine.
This is a product that has a special formulation to give shine to the hair. It contains silicone and other ingredients that leave the wires instantly shiny. Most of them can be used on both dry and wet hair.
Using serum every day can have the opposite effect. Silicone can give shine, but buildup over time weakens them. It's best to keep it for special occasions.
Look for an alcohol-free serum. Alcohol can dry out hair.
2.5 Reduce frizz to the maximum.
Frizz is an enemy of the bright wires. A halo of frizz leaves hair dull and rough instead of shiny. It is possible to tame frizz in any type of hair by following these steps:
Wash your hair with cold water. The cold helps to keep the wires flat and flat, rather than standing upright. You'll be amazed at the difference that this simple step can make.
Do not dry your hair tightly with a towel. Slap it lightly and then let it dry in the open air. Using a towel with force leaves them armed and with frizz.
Replace the brush with a wide-toothed comb. Brushing can break the wires, especially if they are curly or wavy. Broken strands stand up, causing frizz. Use a wide-tooth comb. Back off your hair when it is still wet, starting from the tips towards the root.
Use silk or satin pillowcases. Who has curly hair knows that this trick works wonders to avoid frizz. The cotton fabric absorbs moisture, leaving the yarns dry and frizz. Satin or silk preserve the hair in the natural state without frizz.
2.6 - Cut your hair regularly.
Removing the double ends makes all the difference to give more luster. Ask your hairdresser not to use chemistry or excess heat to straighten your hair.
