It’s 2017. Why is your hair still making you stress? Needless to say, it’s time to fix the problem. Yes, time is what you don’t have. But don’t worry – these tips and tricks will give you runway-ready locks and are easy to add on to your routine without breaking your budget. No lengthy treatments. No need for drastic haircuts or expensive styling products. Let’s get started!
Use A Boar Brush
This is one of the best products on the market because of how quickly it helps improve your hair. Boar hair is one of the stiffest and rigid natural materials available, which makes it perfect for a hairbrush (we’ve all had those moments when the hairbrush breaks in half or the bristles fall out – not with this brush!). You do want to watch out for low-quality imitation brushes – Boar brushes should have a bamboo handle and real boar hair bristles. The strength of the boar hair bristles and the bamboo frame and handle hold up to even the most intense brushing session. Our recommended model is Tiri Pro’s Natural Bamboo Boar XL Paddle Brush. It’s affordable, high-quality, and available in multiple colors.
Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day
Did you know some movie stars and celebrities haven’t washed their hair in almost a week in their films and TV shows? It’s because washing and shampooing your hair every day strips it of natural oils that are extremely important for hair health. Regular hair hygiene is still important, so make sure you’re still shampooing it to remove old oil and dirt at least once a week. To keep your hair looking fresh between washes, see our next tip!
Use Dry Shampoo, and Do It Right
First, if you’re not using dry shampoo, get some immediately! When used correctly, it is a huge time saver (you don’t have to wash your hair as frequently). If you are already using dry shampoo, there’s a good chance you’re using it incorrectly. Everyone’s favorite hair care short-cut has a very specific way it should be applied to get the full effect of the product. Make sure to apply the dry shampoo thoroughly to the roots of your hair and then blow dry your hair for 30 seconds. Without the second step, you leave dirt, oil, and anything else you picked up lingering in your hair. Your hair will thank you for that extra 30 seconds!
Clean Up With Argan Oil Products
When you do wash your hair, treat your hair right with a quality shampoo and conditioner. Moroccan argan oil products help hair immensely. They deeply hydrate, soothe and heal the effects of blow drying and sun damage, restoring your hair to its original state. The best part? Not only do these products smell great, they’re 100% natural. The peach, avocado, and almond oils in these help tame frizz and split ends. Dump the stuff you bought at Target or the grocery store and up your shampoo and conditioning game.
Comb Your Wet Hair With Extreme Care
Wet hair is extremely fragile and prone to breaking. Make sure to use a broad-toothed comb and run it from the roots to the end of your hair as lightly as possible to achieve the best results.
