Smooth, shiny and perfectly-arranged hair – this is exactly how your hairdo looks like when you leave a hairdresser. Sadly, this amazing effect vanishes fast, sometimes even before you return home. Why does it happen to you?
The good news is that we get your back on that one. We’ve gathered 4 hacks that will extend the life of your new hairdo. Ready to learn them?
Wash your hair less often
Try not to shampoo your hair too often. It would be best if you managed to reduce the number of washings to 3 times per week, or even less. If your hair gets oily the next day after washing, try some dry shampoo. It’s worth realizing that freshly washed hair is less manageable and it doesn’t hold the curl. That being said, your hairdo will last longer if you style your hair the next day after shampooing. Lastly, you don’t need a hair spray for extra hold. You can use a dry shampoo instead.
Use the right hair products
If you want to get sleek hair, try using some shampoo that is advertised for creating this effect. However, the most important is to know your hair porosity type. Once you learn whether your hair is low, medium or hair porosity, you will be perfectly able to choose the matching hair care products, which of course guarantees best effects. How to learn your hair porosity type? Try using some online guides to hair porosity. If you dig deeper, you may find an online hair porosity test, just like the one provided on the official Nanoil website. And when you finally manage to collect the right hair care products dedicated to your hair texture, it’ll get easier for you to take control over your hairdo.
Change your pillow
Although it doesn’t seem to be obvious, the pillow you lay your head on every night has a huge influence on the way your hair looks. Simply put, while you change your position sleeping, you expose the hair to friction and mechanical damage. This is why you wake up with ruffled hair. Luckily, we have a solution for that problem. And the answer is… a silk pillowcase. Silk is a gentle fabric that causes no damage to hair. Additionally, it prevents flat hair so in the morning you wake up with an almost untouched hairdo. If you have curly hair, try sleeping with a silk cap.
Take care of your hair ends
After visiting a hairdresser the hair always seems to be super healthy and strong, doesn’t it? How can you make it look this way longer? If you want your hairdo to look good, trim the hair regularly and do your best to protect the ends from splitting. Just get yourself some good serum for ends or a plant oil, and use either product at bedtime. How often should you get the trim? Every 4-6 months should do.
