Even though we all love going to hair salons and having our hair styled, sometimes that’s just not in the cards. The Covid-19 pandemic has hit us hard, and many people had to reorganize their lives and learn to live in this new reality.
Before you can explore the best haircuts after the lockdown, you need to learn how to take care of your hair while being at home. Therefore, we come up with a couple of hairstyling tips every woman needs to know.
Don’t worry, they are easy to do and will make your hair beautiful and healthy again.
Know your hair type
If you want to implement some styling techniques, you need to know what you are working with. Therefore, knowing your hair texture and type will help you navigate hair products more efficiently, to find the best option.
While this might seem like basic knowledge, it’s a bit more complicated than you might imagine. Many experts say that hair follicle identifies your hair type. Based on genetics, follicles vary in thickness, shape, and size.
Your hair can be thin, medium, or thick. To determine what type of hair do you have, use an elastic band and wrap your hair in a pony tail. For instance, one wrap means thick hair, two or three wraps indicate medium hair, more than three wraps mean you have a thin hair.
You may have kinky, curly, wavy, or straight hair when it comes to the texture.
Knowing who to style your hair with a blow dryer can potentially save you a lot of money. Many experts agree that this is one of the most useful beauty abilities women can have. While your hair might not look like you got out of the salon, it will be quite close.
However, to achieve that shiny and smooth finish, you should pick a high-wattage blow dryer, anything above 1800, made of ceramic or tourmaline. It will prevent frizz while offering a shiny texture.
Of course, you should choose the styling products that match your hair type. They will make it more manageable and more comfortable to style.
If you wish to style your hair differently, then curling and flat iron might be something you need in your life. When it comes to a curling iron, make sure it’s ceramic, since it heats hair from the inside out. It should include adjustable settings as well, so you can find an appropriate temperature for your hair type.
Never use these tools on wet hair unless you want to end up with damaged and burnt hair. To have smooth and beautiful beach waves, divide your hair into small sections and start with hair near your neck’s nape. Leave the last half an inch unwrapped from the barrel to accomplish a more modern look.
The same rules apply to flat iron. You should buy one with ceramic plates since they produce ionic heat, which doesn’t damage your hair.
