Best Kept Hair Secrets

BY Meenakshi ChaudharyMay 04, 2013

Pay More Attention to your Scalp

A healthy scalp is your call to a healthier, stronger hair. Switch to a shampoo and conditioner, which contains eucalyptus, menthol and peppermint oil to stimulate your scalp. You can stimulate blood flow to your roots if you massage the suds into your head with your fingertips

Hairspray

Modern sprays keep the hair stiff in addition to doing a bunch of other great things that include increasing shine, fighting frizz, protecting against heat damage and shielding color-treated hair from UV rays. So, make sure you pick hairsprays that promise all of the above.

Buy Sulfate-free Shampoo and Conditioner

Use sulfate-free hair products for curly or color-treated hair. This way, it won't strip your color or the curls, leaving them dehydrated and dull.

When you don't have time to wash your hair

When you want to wash your hair but you are out of time, fight greasy roots with a dry shampoo. Then pull hair up in a sleek bun to hide all the evidence.

For a Finishing Touch

When you're about to leave the house, flip your head over and shake out your hair to boost volume and create that tousled effect. Hit it with hairspray once more and you're good to go!

To get the sleekest ponytail

Get your strands straight by using a large, round brush or a paddle brush while you blow-dry. Then, tease the hair at the crown of your head and pull everything back into a tight, ear-level ponytail. Tame flyaway’s with a dab of smoothing cream and mist your whole head with hairspray

To get the best waves

Apply a lightweight styling cream to damp hair. Next, wrap sections of hair around medium and large rollers. This will give you more natural results. Once your hair is dry, remove the rollers and gently run a brush through the waves. Use a large curling iron, 1 1/2 to 2 inches, on random pieces for added definition and use hairspray for better hold.

For Sleek and Shiny Hair

Apply a lightweight leave-in conditioner on damp hair before drying. For medium hair to thick hair, apply a bit of styling cream to keep strands smooth. Use a flat brush to go underneath your hair and keep the dryer aimed downward. When the section of hair is almost dry, switch to a round brush so that you have some bend at the ends. If it’s humid outside, mist your hair with a protective styling spray and run a flat iron from your ears down.

To Get Volume Without the Bump

Hold a 2-inch-wide section of hair at the crown of your head straight up and use a flat, densely bristled brush to push down the roots a few times. Let the section fall back into place, then turn the brush sideways and use the bristles on the edge to gently smooth down the bump.
