Whether you want to look great for a party and have all afternoon to get ready, or just want to smarten up before a meeting, there are things to do to get your hair looking great and give your confidence a real boost.
Super Hair Tip Number 1:
Shampoo properly. By this, it is meant that you should invest in a top quality salon grade shampoo that matches your hair type, if you have coloured hair, make sure that the formulation of your shampoo is suitable. Likewise if your hair is thin, greasy, blonde, or brunette, talk to your stylist, and get them to advise you on what they think is best. Too many people simply pick something off the supermarket shelf and home for the best, when what they really need is a shampoo that suits them.
Super Hair Tip Number 2:
Condition deeply. Hair conditioners have a formulation that will add body and shine to your hair. You know how uncomfortable and scratchy clothes are if you don’t use a fabric conditioner, well hair is the same. Also, a good conditioner will help to keep your hair static free, which will reduce frizziness even more. Massage the conditioner from root to tip and leave it to work its magic and make your hair look really healthy and shiny before rinsing it thoroughly.
Super Hair Tip Number 3:
Dry your hair well. Modern hair dryers will not harm your hair as much as they used to, but if you are going to use a blow dryer to get your hair dry quickly, make sure you keep it moving over your hair and dry it evenly to avoid overheating. If you have the time, use the dryer on a cool setting to avoid damage. A heat protection spray as found in the Dermaleze Salon range is a perfect choice.
Super Hair Tip Number 4:
Use a good Serum. There are a huge variety of great products around that are designed to smooth your hair. Most salons will be able to point you in the direction of a serum such as Frizz-ease that will help to keep your hair looking great. Generally hair serums work in three ways, by relaxing the hair, smoothing it, and reducing the potential for it to attract the static electricity that will cause it to frizz up.
Super Hair Tip Number 5:
Use good quality hair straighteners. Most people find that the cheaper hair straighteners do not do a very good job. You might find that they do not get hot enough to iron out the kinks properly on a single pass, and are not slippery enough to allow your hair to pass through smoothly. Opt for ceramic or glass heating plates, and make sure that there is an adjustable temperature. Plates get hot fast, and are extra smooth to make styling your hair easy. Ceramic plates will help discharge the static electricity from your hair too, and leave it looking straight for longer.
Super Hair Tip Number 6:
Eat well. Your hair is nourished by what you eat and drink, and will never look good if you don’t eat a balanced diet with lots of vitamins and minerals. Hair is mostly made of protein, so make sure your diet includes plenty of protein. Drink water too, as this will flush impurities out of your body and keep you healthy.
Super Hair Tip Number 7:
Supplements. The intake of dietary vitamins and supplements can also help contribute to achieve strong healthy hair in addition to strong nails and glowing rejuvenated skin. Take a look at the SkinDerm Nutraceutics™ range for a range of skin and hair supplements.
