After you get your hair styled at our Toronto hair salon, you know you want to take care of it to keep your hair looking beautiful. These five secrets will help your hair looking gorgeous, even if you’re on a budget:
We know you’re in a rush in the morning, but you’re far better off air drying your hair instead of blow-drying it. Over time, blow drying damages your hair by removing both surface moisture and water bound to the hair. Excessive blow drying can make your hair strands brittle and dry. The solution isn’t just an improvement, it’s free! Give your hair time to air dry and save the blow-dryer for special occasions. Embrace your natural hair texture by skipping the blow-dryer and letting the air work its magic.
Shampoo Less Often
Of course you want your hair to be clean and hygienic, but shampoo can be damaging to your hair. Shampoo strips your hair of natural oils, which can cause it to dry out. For others, their hair becomes oily because the glands kick into overdrive to compensate. Keep your hair natural and healthy by only shampooing a couple times per week. Not only will your hair thank you for it, so will your wallet as you spend less money on buying shampoo.
You probably have some vinegar lying around in your cupboard already. Take a small glass of apple cider vinegar with you into the bathroom and apply it after you have washed your hair, then rinse it out shortly afterward. Once dry, your hair will be soft and shiny. The vinegar helps to remove product buildup and detangle your hair naturally. Not bad for a regular item in your kitchen pantry.
Reduce Use of Hot Tools
Hot tools can make your hair look stylish incredible, but when you overdo it they damage your hair. Your hair needs a break, so save the hot tools for special occasions. If you must, use your flat iron on the lowest setting and do the fewest pass-throughs possible to get the perfect look. It’s not just free to use hot tools less often, you can also reduce wear on the devices.
Coconut oil and olive oil can both do wonders for your scalp and hair. You probably have these lying around at home or in the kitchen, so take advantage of their deep moisturizing properties. Work a small amount of oil up the ends of your hair toward the scalp, and let it soak for about an hour. Wash it out, and your hair will feel silky and soft.
Keeping your hair healthy and beautiful once you come back from our Toronto hair salon doesn’t have to break the bank. These five cost-free secrets will do the trick just right.
