As we all know, if your hair looks good you feel good. A new haircut can work wonders when it comes to freshening up a whole look. However, in the same way, a bad hair day can make you look and feel miserable.
If you’ve been having more bad hair days than normal as a result of tired looking locks follow our helpful tips to rejuvenate them.
Hair masks and conditioners can do wonders for your hair but they can also do some damage to your bank balance. Most celebrity hairdressers have hair care ranges out and almost all include a product to repair damaged locks but they are not cheap. Why not create your own conditioner at home that will have the same effect at half the price? There are plenty of ‘recipes’ about to make hair conditioner at home but one of the most effective involves eggs! Simply mix two egg yolks with a teaspoon of baby oil and a cup of luke warm water and apply to wet hair, leaving to soak for ten or fifteen minutes before rinsing thoroughly.
Stop washing every day
If your hair looks tired and dull chances are you’re going to want to wash it in the home of injecting some life into it but this is counterproductive. When you wash your hair it loses some of its natural moisture. Washing it every day can have two effects. Either your hair will appear dull, dry and lifeless or your hair will try to replace the lost moisture too quickly and you’ll end up with greasy hair. Try washing your hair every other day and if possible could down to twice a week.
Have a cut
Nothing makes hair look lifeless like split ends. A quick and easy way of livening up your locks is to have a trim in order to get rid of the ends which have become dry and broken as a result of styling and washing.
Avoid the styling tools
Ok, we know you love your straighteners and we know your curling tongs are the only way to get your hair looking glam enough for a Saturday night but repeated styling with heated styling tools are doing a lot of damage to your hair. Only use them when absolutely necessary and when you must use them be sure to use a heat protector spray on your hair beforehand.
When it comes to using a hairdryer use the coolest setting possible and, if you can, let your hair dry naturally occasionally.
