If you want to be that one girl who causes major hair envy amongst her circle, you need to know how to look after your hair properly. You might think that having luscious locks is something that can only be achieved by the rich and famous, or at least by those women who have a lot of time on their hands, However, with the following helpful, hot hair hacks, you will be rocking a fierce head of hair in no time.
Use a Boar Hair Brush
Boar bristle brushes might be a bit more expensive than your current hairbrush, but they are well worth the investment. Because boar bristles have the same composition as your hair, they can increase the shine and condition of your hair, without doing any harm. The bristles will distribute your scalp’s natural oils more evenly through your hair, massage your scalp and lightly massage your head for a pleasant, effective brushing experience.
Clean your hairbrushes
One thing that you should never neglect to do if you want soft, shiny, healthy hair is cleaning your hairbrush.
Hairbrushes will collect all manner of dirt and grime over their lifetime, and this can have a major impact on how well they do their job. If you take the time to clean the build-up of hair products, oils and hair from your bristles, you can expect to see an immediate improvement in the condition of your hair.
Curl Your Hair Without Heat
You can find some amazing styles on sites such as www.hairclippercenter.net, but if you don’t want to damage your hair with heated rollers or tongs, fear not! It’s possible to create show-stopping curls without even the hint of heat.
Many methods will enable you to curl your hair without heat, but the simplest is perhaps the following braiding process:
- Wash and condition your hair, taking care to remove any tangles
- Pat hair dry and divide into two pigtails
- Braid each pigtail and secure with a hair elastic
If you prefer tighter curls to more natural ‘beachy’ waves, you may want to create 3 or four separate braids instead of two.
Get to Grips with Bobby Pins
So many lovely ladies complain about bobby pins that it would be easy to think that they’re more trouble than they’re worth, but the truth is, most of us simply aren’t using them correctly.
If you want to avoid slipping, sliding bobby pins you need to:
- Buy the best quality bobby pins you can find
- Slide them into your hair with the wavy part at the bottom, instead of using your teeth to prise them apart
- Use a small amount of your hair to ‘lock’ the pin into position
Doing this should prevent the most common issues experienced by bobby pin users and make for much better updos overall.
As you can see, none of these hacks are particularly difficult, expensive or time-consuming, but they will help you to improve the condition of your hair, create stronger styles and have the lovely locks you’ve always longed for.
