Here’s a few salon secrets that we’d like to share with you just in case you don’t already know them.
Turn down the temperature:
Here's a little tip for the weekend.... After washing your hair in the shower, before getting out, turn your water temperature down from warm to cold.! Yes, you did hear that right. Give your hair a quick blast of cold water as this will closes the pores and it will leave your hair with a beautiful shine...
Brushing your hair:
Another important hair tip that every woman should know is that if your hair is filled with annoying knots, then before sure to brush it well before you head into the shower not afterwards. Your hair is at its weakest when it is wet, so brushing it when dry will reduce hair loss.
While this may sound more like a spa treatment it’s essential to look after your scalp. Massaging your scalp will increase blood flow, therefore, strengthening your roots. Massage your scalp during your shower for about five minutes and this will definitely do the trick.
Only Straighten/curl dry hair:
Think about what happens when you drop water into a hot pan, then consider if you want the same to happen to your hair. Definitely not! That’s why you never ever want to use a curling iron or hair straightener when the strands of your hair are still wet or even damp. It is well worth the extra couple of minutes drying your hair before you move onto styling.
Use Dry shampoo:
There is nothing wrong at all with using a little bit of dry shampoo from time to time. We’ve all been there, forgot to wash our hair the night before, want to try and get an extra day out of our existing hair because we haven’t got time to wash it. If your hair is looking a little greasy then after a couple of sprays of a dry shampoo it will be looking as good as new. There is an art to using it as if you spray too close to the root then you will end up looking like you’ve just emptied a pot of talc onto your scalp but once you get the hang of it, you’ll love it. Like everything, practise makes perfect.
