Many women dream of having long, silky hair but unfortunately, most haven’t obtained it. Thanks to family genes, your hair type can range from thin and frizzy to thick and wavy. Regardless, silky hair is on trend and many women want soft and silky hair today, without all the expensive salon visits. I hear this question from my beauty clients all the time, “How can I get gorgeous hair at home?” It’s not as hard as you may think. I’ll share with you a few of my salon secrets.
Follow these easy steps and you’ll see (and feel) the difference in just a few days.
Wash hair every other day. Washing away the hair’s natural oils will strip the shininess.
Use the right brush for silky hair. Lay down the boar bristle brush. It’s rough and tears the hair. Instead, pick up a paddle brush with plastic tipped bristles.
Blow hair dry with a tourmaline hair dryer. This special type of blow dryer delivers frizz-free results that you will immediately notice. Consider investing in tourmaline-infused hair tools like flat-irons for gorgeous shine every time.
Apply coconut oil to your hair each week. It’s a great alternative to time-consuming hot oil treatments. First, coat your hair with coconut oil just before stepping into the shower. The hair should be dry when you apply the oil. Leave the oil on your hair while you shave and soap your body. Then shampoo and condition as normally.
Go easy on the heat. You’ve got to break your addiction to hot water. No more long hot showers and shampoos. When hair is heated, hair frizzes and breaks. You need to opt for warm and cool shampoos. Also, when you blow dry, end the drying session with a blast of cold air. It leaves your hair strong, shiny and feeling silky.
Just by making these few changes you’ll see your hair looking stronger and silkier!
