I’m sure we’ve all seen that one guy or girl on the bus whose hair is horribly atrocious. Think about bad hair, and then imagine even worse. We DO NOT want you to ever be that guy. Do you ever wonder why you get split ends, and are then required to get a haircut? This is especially frustrating when you are trying to grow it out, isn’t it? Well, the reason we can’t have nice things (nice hair) is because we do not give it a chance to be natural and healthy.
Many environments, conditions and accents effect and even damage our hair. Heat, the products we use, when we brush our hair, and how often we get perms or other chemical treatments (like changing up your color) can prohibit us from having nice things. It is no secret heat is damaging to hair and can cause severe dryness and split ends. Curling, straightening, blow-drying, crimping, etc. Another reason your hair might be falling short is the products you use to keep it up. Shampoos and conditioners sometimes have plastics and “fillers” in them which actually damage your hair and scalp. Brushing your hair is good for it! It moves the natural oils from your scalp down the strands of your hair, and it keeps the strong and healthy strands in place and untangled. By brushing your hair daily, it will become less greasy and easier to handle. Perming, coloring and other chemical treatments inevitably damage your hair to some extent. But to cut down on their damaging effects, one thing is simple: do not do them as often. About every four to six months is the best range.
Tune in for tomorrow’s blog on how we can get nice things!
