“You have beautiful hair!” You feels so good! However, most women find their hair to thin or stringy. With these tips is an end to the whining.
Actually, not really much needed for a beautiful hair: a good cut, a mild washing and proper handling with conditioner and rinse. If you still use a good brush and comb the right, can not go far wrong with the plows.
How often should you wash?
Go tender and sensitive to your hair. Not maltreat it and not deprive it of its natural protective film. Normally, it is sufficient to wash the hair two to three times per week. Otherwise scalp and hair can become brittle. Oily hair can be washed daily to every other day. Assuming you use a mild shampoo.
Brush out thoroughly before washing
Before washing the hair, you should brush your hair thoroughly, especially if you have used styling products such as gel, or spray paint. A majority of the residues can be downright sweep with the brush. The brush also prevents excessive tangling when washing your tuft – which makes the subsequent combing easier.
The right shampoo for your hair
Sure to use a tuned to the hair shampoo – there are special products for fine, oily, dry, scaly and even for permed and colored hair. Normal, healthy hair needs only a mild shampoo with a neutral pH (5.5).
Less is more
Go sparingly with shampoo. A large dollop of walnut completely enough – then the wash-active substances can not escape and dry out the hair moisture the scalp. Spread with some lukewarm water in her hands, only then give a hair and gently massage in circular motions with your fingertips into the scalp. Leave the tops outside before they get through the wash by itself enough shampoo. Once enough shampooing with regular shampoo out completely, unless you have styled your hair with lots of hair wax.
Be sure to thoroughly rinse off the shampoo with lukewarm water. This is important because otherwise your hair care residues complain, let it appear greasy and quickly hold and volume have no chance. Rule of thumb: Five times longer than rinse wash. It is best to rinse the last cold rinse until your hair squeak.
Pat dry gently
When wet, the hair is very sensitive. The cuticle layer is still swollen by washing and can be easily injured. Rub your hair after washing therefore not vigorously but press it very gently with a warmed towel.
Comb out wet hair, do not brush

Avoid hot dryer air
Too hot and too long blow drying dries out the hair. Optimal: hair air dry. Pre-drying towel 10 or under to 15 minutes and then edit as short as possible with moderately warm dryer air of at least 15 cm away. Always lead to hair from roots towards hair ends, so the cuticle is smooth. Tip: Mousse protects the hair while blow-drying from too much heat and the moisture gets in her hair.
Hair care and styling scrub dissolves residues
Care and styling products can often leave residue on the hair so that it ends up looking dull and matte. Then is time for a hair scrub. Perform hair peels but not too often – more often than every two to four weeks, it should not be. In Tön and a hair scrub color accidents can provide first aid. You can use it to discolor a little discolored hair. After peeling the hair you should treat your hair in any case a cure – it is now receptive to care active again.

However, they have only a limited impact care – one minute contact time is sufficient for this reason completely. The active ingredients to fit like a fine protective film around the hair, prevent matting, static electricity and seal the moisture in the hair inside.
Intensive hair treatments work. They are available as rinse-offs, so to rinse out, and as a leave-ins – the latter act until the next wash one. Some cures at the same time maintain the scalp. That is, for example, for greasy hair or dandruff on the hair structure ideal.Je you should make a deep conditioner every two weeks. Completely untreated hair does not need this intensive care so often. If your hair can be difficult to unravel after wash, this is a clear sign that it is time again for a deep conditioner.

Swimming caps and good rinsing with freshwater protect the hair from salt and chlorine attacks, hats from too much sun. Not allow it to dry in direct sunlight for your hair. And avoid hair clips made of metal. This may heat up in the sun and damage the hair. Use moisture-control shampoos, conditioners and sprays – they’re available with integrated UV protection. Maybe you pamper your hair after an intense solar day indeed with an after-sun care. The winter also charged the hair. In addition to wind, cold and headgear makes him the dry heated air to create.

At that time, the hair was washed and distributed more sporadically, with the brush strokes of the sebum from the scalp to the hair ends. It was like a deep conditioner: The cuticle of the hair joined the hair shiny. Today, however, put coloring, perming and styling products to the hair. As the tried and true recipe does not help. On the contrary, too much brushing or combing can additionally strain stressed hair.
What you should look at brush and comb
Subjecting your brushes in a scratch test on back of your hand: Scratch it, this brush has not lost any of your hair! Brushes with sharp metal or plastic bristles and combs with unpolished tines sent to harm: you roughen the delicate cuticle of the hair and cause damage to the structure.
When you purchase a new brush that the bristles are soft and rounded or have round knobs. Crowded bristles are good for thin and short hair, widely spaced bristles are ideal for thick and long hair. Round brushes are ideal for molding. For blow-drying plastic brushes (brushes skeleton) with widely spaced bristles better. Making it possible to build great volume.
The ideal comb has rounded teeth at the tips – Press seams have nothing to look for. The farther apart the teeth are, the more gentle for the hair. To fine combs remain easily hang in the hair.
Important: brushes and combs regularly cleaned with shampoo, so they are not stomping ground for germs. For oily hair and dandruff at best when shampooing.
