How to wash your hair the right way

You may do it practically every day, but do you really know how to wash your hair the right way? Using the correct techniques can make a world of difference in your hair’s health, bounce and shine — but if you’re making some common mistakes, you could be damaging your strands without even knowing it.

1. Start with a rinse.

Just like your laundry needs a rinse cycle before you add detergent, hair should be thoroughly wet before you add your shampoo. “Hot water will open the cuticle, which is good for removing any dirt or product trapped in the hair,” says White.

10 things your hairstylist wants you to know

1. If you want your hair to go you need to keep getting it trimmed.

Before I started doing hair, I never understood this because no one took the time to explain it to me. What your stylist means is that when your ends split, they will split up the strand until that hair breaks or falls out. The more hairs that do this, the thinner and “scragglier” the bottom of your hair will look (because there is less hair there). If you get a “dusting” which is a miniscule trim (.25-.5 inches), to remove the split ends and keep them from splitting up, roughly every two months, you’ll maintain and keep the hair you have longer- enabling you to have longer, healthier hair.

6 Simple Tips for Not Damaging Your Hair When Using a Hot Iron

NEVERrun your flat iron over the same piece of hair twice. It’s actually counter productive to keep going over and over the same piece of hair, and highly damaging. Aim for one slow pass down each section of hair.

ALWAYSuse a thermal heat protectant that coats the hair with protective ingredients (usually silicone-based) to reduce the amount of damage caused by high heats from flat irons and curling irons.

NEVERput a high-heat product on wet or damp hair, even if the tool claims to be a ‘wet-to-dry’ product.

10 Tricks to Make Fine Hair Look 10x Thicker

Hair can be pretty deceiving when it comes to density and fullness. For many of you, you may have a lot of hair, but it just happens to be a lot of very fine strands. This gives off the appearance that your hair is flat and dull, which can be very hard to style (who doesn’t want that Victoria’s Secret Angel blowout?) exactly how you want to. Never fear though, because broken down the top tips and tricks to getting your hair to new heights – and to faking the thickness that we all know you want.
