5 WAYS YOU’RE APPLYING YOUR HAIR PRODUCTS WRONG

5 WAYS YOU’RE APPLYING YOUR HAIR PRODUCTS WRONG

1. You’re using way too much moisturizing cream, which can weigh your hair down.

Instead, squeeze a pea- to quarter-size amount of the hydrating leave-in product onto one of your palms, and then rub your two hands together like you would hand cream. That way when you apply it, the product goes through evenly and actually coats more strands.

2. You only spritz your hair a few times with heat protector after you towel dry.

It’s important to spray every section thoroughly that you plan to blow-dry, curl, or flat iron.  Also, make sure to concentrate on the face-framing pieces that get the most heat styling, so your hair doesn’t become dry and brittle from the heat.

3. You’re trying to smooth frizz by patting curl cream onto the top layer of your hair only. 

But what you should really be doing to battle frizz is rubbing a quarter-size amount of frizz serum, in your palm, taking random-size sections, and twisting your curls around and around your finger, so each curl gets wave-defining attention.

4. You hold the nozzle of your hairspray too close to your hair.

Spraying hairspray too close to your hair will concentrate the formula in one spot, leaving it crunchy and not touchable. Instead, hold a hairspray about 12 inches away from your hair, aiming it at an angle so that you get a light mist all over.

5. You apply your root-lifting product quickly at your roots and that’s it.

To get major volume, you need to not only apply a root lifter to damp hair at your roots, but also throughout your hair to build body and give it structure. Then, blow-dry your hair after to let the heat lock in the lift.

Growing your damaged hair!

One of the most common things we hear within the hair industry is about, damaged hair that won’t grow! Although many think these problems may be due to genetics, there are many other factors that can influence how your hair behaves!

We have compiled a few explanations for your dry, damaged hair and some tips to help improve your hair condition. Too rough on your locks: Towel drying your hair and detangling can be quite a chore – especially for those with curly hair! Make sure you gently squeeze water out of your hair with a towel rather than rubbing your towel around your head! When detangling, it is best to do when your hair is damp. Use a comb or brush to gently detangle your knots – make sure you’re not ripping at your hair. Know your hair type: Knowing your hair type will have a huge influence on its condition. If you know your hair type, you will be able to use specific products for your unique hair type. Using the wrong products is a huge cause of damaged hair – and quite often many people never think that their products could have negative effects. Doing too much: Although many think that ‘the more, the merrier’, however in some cases – simple is better! Try cut down on some products that you are using and cut down how much time is spent on your hair. It is a small change that will create a huge difference. Hydration: This is one of the most important points! We all know how important is for the body- including your hair! Drinking water will keep your hair moisturized and will prevent drying and brittle ends. It is also the perfect way to decrease frizz and breakage. For those of you doing everything you can to try and grow your hair, follow these simple tips! Be gentle on your hair. When combing and brushing, be soft so that there is no hair breakage and your ends don’t get damaged. If you are rough on your hair, there will be a lot of breakage which in turn will make your hair look shorter and thinner. Your hair may be too dry – Keeping your hair hydrated will minimize breakage. Use moisturizing products (especially water-based products). Seal your ends: It is important to retain the moisture that has been applied to your hair – especially on your ends! Using an oil is the perfect way to seal your ends and give them the TLC they deserve in order to prevent breakage or split ends. Protect your hair: Ensure that with all heat styling you use a heat protectant or hair oil so that you don’t fry your hair. Also, try to cut down the amount of heat that is used on your hair! The less your hair is styled with heating tools, the better the condition will be! Try using different styles that don’t require heating! Yours in beautiful hair xx
