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!

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Stop blowdrying once hair is dry; it’s using it on already dried hair that does the damage
  5. Throw away your dryer nozzle, you don’t need it plus it can lead to excessive damage
  6. On wet hair use a wide tooth comb and always gently ease out knots from the ends upwards
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Dry, split ends make hair look dull and lifeless and having them trimmed off is the fast way to getting hair in good condition.
  10. ‘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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. For wild sexy hair, blow-dry with your head upside down using your fingers to tousle and add texture
  14. Book a conditioning treatment when your colour is done or use an over-night deep conditioning treatment soon after
  15. 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
  16. 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?
  17. If you love your colour – take a lot of pictures so your hairdresser will remember on the next appointment
  18. ‘Use a deep conditioning treatment at least once a week, it only takes 60 seconds to apply and it makes a huge difference
  19. 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
  20. 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.
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. Shoulder bag straps and pushing sunglasses up on top of the head can cause breakage to hair - especially on fine and coloured hair
  26. Go to bed with very slightly damp hair so you wake up with a messy texture.
  27. 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.’ 
  28. Be warned; short hair doesn’t suit all face shapes. You could be too tall or have a really long neck.’
  29.  can’t live without my Tangle Teezer. It’s amazing for all hair types and I always keep one in my kit
  30. 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.’
  31. 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.
  32. 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.
  33. 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.’
  34. 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
  35. Redken Quick Tease is like backcombing-in-a-can; use on its own or before backcombing to really give gutsy body at the roots.
  36. 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.
