Hair Care Tips: Healthy Hair
Healthy-looking hair is all about strength. Try these simple tips for durable locks—so your tresses are ready to take on all the styles you like.
Don’t rough dry wet hair out of the shower with a towel as it will damage hair. Instead, blot hair to remove the moisture.
Always condition your hair if it's prone to breakage. Conditioning is the best way to give your hair the nourishment it needs to stay strong.
Use detangling spray and a wide-tooth comb on damp hair—wet hair is more delicate.
If your hair is especially delicate, sleep on a satin pillowcase. Satin won't snag your hair or cause friction like cotton, which can rough up the cuticle of extremely fine hair.
Don't use elastics that have metal clasps on them. Always tie up your hair with covered, ......read more
