1. Apple Cider VinegarWant to make your hair fluffy and bouncy? Look no further than that bottle of Apple Cider Vinegar in your cabinet. Simply mix equal parts of warm water and apple cider vinegar and thoroughly apply the mixture to your hair. Rinse the mixture out completely after five minutes, no longer. The mixture will help remove any hair product buildup in your hair, making it shinier, lighter and much easier to style.
2. Baking SodaDissolve three tablespoons of baking soda in one cup of water and apply to hair. This particular mixture causes your hair to absorb water at a microscopic level, preventing your hair from drying out. Use this method once a week to replace your weekly deep conditioning treatment. To further boost your hair’s moisture, try using the mixture with conditioner!
3. Olive Oil, the Super Conditioner Trust me, you’re going to want to start with a small amount first, maybe just a palm full. From personal experience, using olive oil as a conditioner works like no other. After shampooing, apply olive oil from your hair tips to roots, going up the hair shaft. After a few minutes, thoroughly rinse the olive oil from your hair and dry and style as normal. You’ll notice that your hair is much softer and manageable for at least a week. Repeat as needed.
4. Detangle Your Hair While Full of ConditionerThis may sound extremely simple, but many don’t think of it. Just apply a generous amount of conditioner to your hair, then brush and watch those knots come out with ease. With this trick, you’ll no longer have to worry about pain while taking the knots out of your dry hair.
5. Clarifying Shampoo for Blond HairIf you have blond hair and want to keep it shiny and vibrant, simply use any type of clarifying shampoo once a week. Using a clarifying shampoo will remove any product buildup that may be dulling your blonde hair and keep it’s color looking fresh. If you keep up with this tip, you’ll notice that your highlights and color last much longer, saving you money and trips to the salon.
6. Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Honey Conditioner Mixture All you’ll need to create this ultra effective conditioner is some extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil and a little bit of honey. Combine all ingredients in equal parts, apply to hair for 15 minutes and then wash thoroughly. Coconut oil is well known for its moisturizing properties, while the honey helps retain the moisture. Repeat as needed.
7. Schedule Trims Every 10 Weeks This may sound a little frequent, but having a little trim every 10 or so weeks gets rid of all the split, frayed ends. This will help your hair grow faster and prevent any further drying or damage. Not only will your hair look better, it will feel better too. Be sure to apply one of the deep conditioning treatments mentioned above weekly to prevent further fraying or splitting.
8. Styling Bend or VolumeIf you want more volume in your hair, use a hair dryer to dry the roots of your hair leaving the rest to air dry. On the other hand, you can always air dry your hair and simply flat iron the ends, which creates a bend effect. Many women make the mistake of overdriving their hair to create volume, this just results in more damaged hair. If you’re not in a hurry, its always best to air dry your hair.
9. Shampoo Your Scalp Only If your hair is oily, pull your hair back and shampoo only your scalp, using the leftover suds in your hands to clean the rest of your hair. Doing this will ensure that you don’t over shampoo your hair, causing it to dry out. Shampoos dry out hair due to their high alkalinity, so shampoo with caution. To take your hair care up a notch, try using a cleansing conditioner. These sulfate-free shampoos do not lather so they will not strip your hair of its natural oils.
10. Use the Right Brush Use a brush that has flexible teeth and a soft padding on the bottom. This type of brush makes taking the knots out of your hair much easier. Using the right brush will prevent breakage and help build volume, so choose wisely.
