In this article we will take a look at some tips that can help you style your hair more effectively to help you find a great look for summer. While most people know basic hair styling tips, these secrets can help you find hair styles that may have been out of your reach without going to an expensive salon.
One common myth is that you shouldn’t shampoo your hair daily. This tip comes from the days when shampoo was harsh and would strip all the beneficial oils away from your hair. However, today’s shampoos are gentle and cannot damage your hair as before. If you have oily hair, feel free to shampoo every day. However, this may not be a good idea if you want to style your hair. That’s because dirty hair is actually a lot easier to style than recently washed hair. If you are looking for an updo, sprinkle some baby powder into your hair. Stylists use dry shampoo in order to get the perfect texture for hair styling.
Another great tip for people that want to get beach waves is using sea salt spray. This is a trend that is being used very effectively in some of the world’s most famous hair styling salons. Sea salt spray can give you the effect of an expensive perm for a fraction of the cost. Some water and sea salt in a bottle is more than enough to make your own sea salt spray. However, there are commercial products that can help you achieve this effect. Sea salt will enhance your hair’s natural waves and can be a more effective alternative (and much less damaging) than a perm.
Another tip is to avoid brushing your hair immediately a you blow dry your hair. You should wait until it is almost dry from blow drying, running your fingers through it first. If you cannot glide your fingers through your hair without it tangling, you will definitely want to avoid using a brush.
One of the most requested styles is finding waves that fall in layers and pieces rather than in a single clump. While many stylists will try to convince you that it is the cut that matters, the product also matters. That is not to say that the cut is not the most important element. However, using a pomade to separate the layers in your do will help you achieve that look. There is no use in having your stylist take the care needed to give you layers of different thickness if it is all clumped and falls together.
