Here’s the thing, we all know that the day that your hair looks at its best is the day that you walk out of the salon, but in the week or so in between appointments, you have to try your best to maintain some of that magic that your stylist created on your head! Sometimes it’s just a case of knowing some tips and tricks that will help to keep your locks in great condition until the time comes when you can visit the safety of the salon again! Here is how to look like you just stepped out of the salon.
1. Coconut Oil
A great tip for maintaining magical hair at home is to use coconut oil to seal your hair cuticles. Sealing the damaged ends of your hair can help to prevent further breakage and split ends in the time when you can’t get to a hairdresser, and coconut oil is perfect for that. All you need to do is apply some to your dampened strands from the mid shaft to the ends and leave in for 20 minutes before rinsing.
2. Careful Brushing
It’s actually crazy just how much damage you can do to your hair if you don’t brush it correctly. You should never brush it when it is completely wet, because damp strands are much more fragile than dry strands and prone to breaking. Don’t ever brush too aggressively no matter what state your hair is in, always be gentle and slow down when you meet resistance because trying to power through will only results in tearing out knots.
3. Three Section Blow Dry
To achieve the perfect blow dry at home, all you have to do is follow the three section rule. Firstly, start with the hair below you ears, then the hair in between your ears and temples and then whatever’s left on top. Starting at the bottom section and then moving up is an important direction to take because it is the best way to ensure that you don’t miss any areas. Even one forgotten damp area can wreak havoc on your overall styling.
