Introduction

Your hair is considered to be your crowning glory. In order to be fully beautiful, you need to take care of your hair. The hair is a part of your bosy that needs an extensive maintaining and conditioning regimen. Remember that there can be no messier fashion faux pas than having unkempt and damage hair. So read further to know the steps in hair care, as well as fixing your hair.

Step 1

Start by setting up a good base for your hair. This means that you should have a hair care regimen so that your hair stays in great shape. Your hair should be healthy and conditioned, not to mention free from damage. Choose a shampoo that is able to clean your hair and scalp. Opt for shampoos that contain less alcohol; this is because alcohol can just dry up your hair. Also, remember that shampoos are just meant to be used for 2-3 times a week only to avoid stripping your hair of its natural oils. 

Step 2

Conditioner also plays a major role in caring for your hair. Every time you wash your hair, make sure to use a rich conditioner to hydrate your hair and create a protective barrier from potential damage by the sun and heat. Use conditioner to the ends of your hair and leave it on for at least three minutes and rinse thoroughly.

You can also use a deep conditioning treatment or a hair mask to nourish your hair even more. Use this product at least once a week, leave it for 20-30 minutes then rinse thoroughly.

Step 3

Before styling, make sure that your hair is air or towel dried first. However, you should not rub your hair against the towel because this causes damage. Instead, pat it dry with the softest towel that you can ever find in your closet. 

Before using the hair dryer, make sure that you use a hair mousse to leave the hair soft and smooth. In using hair dryer, remember these things: Use the high setting for drying your hair; and use the low setting for styling your hair

Step 4

  • Divide your hair into sections and start using the flat iron at the back of your next going forward to the sides of your hair. Use a paddle brush and fine toothed comb alternatively.
  • If you opt to use a curling iron, divide your hair into thin sections and curl loosely to achieve beach waves which are perfect for every season. To secure and lock in the curls, use hair spray or a setting lotion.
