ANY TIPS PLS
Your hair isn’t ruined forever! I have a lot of split ends and you can’t really stop them but putting a lot of condition on the ends will really help!
Here is 36 best hair tips!
- If possible wash hair daily - think how dirty your face gets by the end of a day, and you take your hair to the same places
- A mini daily scalp massage is great for hair; spend two minutes gently kneading the scalp to improve blood flow as a healthy scalp = healthy hair.
- Rubbing hair with a towel is one of the most damaging things. After that it’s over-heating the hair with driers, curling wands and straightening irons
- Stop blowdrying once hair is dry; it’s using it on already dried hair that does the damage
- Throw away your dryer nozzle, you don’t need it plus it can lead to excessive damage
- On wet hair use a wide tooth comb and always gently ease out knots from the ends upwards
- Take a look at your hair before you automatically shampoo/style it, often a blast of dry shampoo or a little hairspray will mean that you don’t have to restyle that day
- Just as you select your moisturiser to suit your skin type, you should select the right kinds of styling products for your hair to look its best
- Dry, split ends make hair look dull and lifeless and having them trimmed off is the fast way to getting hair in good condition.
- ‘For that swept supermodel fringe, blow dry it all forward and quite flat down over your face.Then push it all to the side to finish the look
- f you want to get real supermodel hair like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Gisele, rough dry the hair and then take random sections and wrap around big tongs, the secret is to leave the roots and at least an inch/half-inch at the ends and just tong the middle section
- Hot or warm hair can be molded into any shape or style; to create perfect waves at home, simply twist hair up into a tight bun straight after blow-drying and leave to cool for as long as possible. Let it down once cool and you’ll have natural waves with no effort
- For wild sexy hair, blow-dry with your head upside down using your fingers to tousle and add texture
- Book a conditioning treatment when your colour is done or use an over-night deep conditioning treatment soon after
- Always have a consultation before you have your colour done. Take in tear sheets of hair colour that you like and also the colour you don’t want - aim to take five you love, five you hate
- With a new colour you need to be fully aware of what you are committing to - if you want to go very blonde you can’t use straighteners every day, also how often will your roots need doing?
- If you love your colour – take a lot of pictures so your hairdresser will remember on the next appointment
- ‘Use a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week, it only takes 60 seconds to apply and it makes a huge difference
- For an easy, at-home concoction for healing scalps and increasing shine mix 2 tablespoons each of almond, olive and coconut oil, massage through from the ends of the hair to the roots and leave in for one hour. Wash thoroughly after
- For the perfect at-home blowdry, always use a leave-in conditioner or blow dry lotion as a heat protectant and cuticle smoother. Use a root booster/volumiser on the roots and comb through to give lasting volume and hold, then use large round brushes and blow-dry section by section.
- Use a hair mask then cover with a plastic shower cap and add a little warmth from a hair dryer to get the treatment to work deeper into the hair. Always rinse well and finish with a blast of cool water to ensure maximum results
- For a great DIY blowdry, rough dry your hair to about 90% and then for the last 10% only, dry the hair with a brush for a smooth finish
- For an instant grey/root cover up, blend powder eye shadow into hair and hold in place with hairspray for a quick fix until you can see your colourist
- Don’t make rash decisions – if you want a drastic change after a break-up or having a baby really think it through and see at least two stylists before any major change. Plan, never be impulsive when it comes to your hair.
- Shoulder bag straps and pushing sunglasses up on top of the head can cause breakage to hair - especially on fine and coloured hair
- Go to bed with very slightly damp hair so you wake up with a messy texture.
- There’s this belief that once you reach 40 you should get your hair cut, but long hair can look great as you get older as long as you look after it.’
- Be warned; short hair doesn’t suit all face shapes. You could be too tall or have a really long neck.’
- can’t live without my Tangle Teezer. It’s amazing for all hair types and I always keep one in my kit
- For fine, thinning hair use a brush to stimulate the scalp and encourage hair growth. Take a Tangle Teezer over the scalp and brush through to the ends. Alternatively use a paddle brush on dry hair.’
- For hair that really needs some persuasion to hold volume use a fine tooth pin tail comb to backcomb the root areas, then spritz the backcombed sections with Redken Quick Tease or dry shampoo.
- I swear by dry shampoo, I can’t live without it. Use it on freshly washed hair to add texture and volume. Never spray directly on to partings or roots and always spray in sections.
- Use Shu Uemura The Art of Hair Volume Maker the day after a blow dry to revive volume. For very fine hair, use it immediately after a blowdry to create great volume and incredible texture.’
- For all-day volume add Redken Gutsor Shu Uemura Ample Angora Mousse to roots with your finger tips, and blast dry with your head upside down
- Redken Quick Tease is like backcombing-in-a-can; use on its own or before backcombing to really give gutsy body at the roots.
- For smooth, shiny hair, evenly spread a pea-size blob of Pureology Colour Stylist Cuticle Polisher all over your palms and then use over mid-lengths and ends of hair.
