Feeling like your hair has seen better days, and ready to restore shine and texture back to your mane? With the summer heat in full effect, your hair can dry out and lose its color. And if you’re someone who spends most of their day at a desk in an office, it’s not always easy to get the right amount of sunshine and vitamin C for your hair to brighten up. But that doesn’t mean that beautiful hair is a total lost cause. We have some great and helpful tips for you to revitalize your locks and get them looking as good as ever.
Brush your hair (but, like, actually).
This may seem obvious, but you would be surprised how many people don’t brush their hair each morning and night. Most of us may have heard the myth that brushing your hair can actually cause your strands to break and makes your hair look unhealthy, and maybe that’s why you go ahead and skip the late-night comb through. But don’t be fooled: brushing your hair twice a day helps spread the natural oils from your scalp around your entire head of hair so that it nourishes the roots and keeps hair looking shiny. In the morning, you should brush your hair gently to get out any knots that may have occurred while you were sleeping. That early morning brush will also get circulation from your scalp to the ends. In the evening, before you go to sleep, brushing your hair takes out any foreign dirts that may have gotten caught in your tresses throughout the day, and helps build volume.
Use products that work best for your hair type.
Having healthy hair doesn’t just happen. Using products that work really well with your hair gives you the results that you are looking for. There is a huge selection of products out on the market that you can use to get the perfect texture or shine, to achieve the exact color you are hoping for, and to eliminate anything that you may be insecure about when it comes to your locks. If you are really struggling with dull-looking hair that is dry and lacking color, you should be using certain products that rehydrate your mane. Using these products adds more shine and gets rid of the dry hair problem once and for all.
Try semi-permanent dye for better color.
If the color of your hair right now is what’s making it dull, then going to your local drugstore and purchasing semi-permanent hair dye may be a great option for you. As shocking as this may be, semi-permanent hair dye is a lot healthier for your hair than going to your salon and getting it permanently dyed a certain color. The boxed hair dye is less harsh on your hair cells while applying, and it lacks ammonia so your roots will not grow in as fast. Instead, using temporary hair dye adds tons of shine to your locks and makes the color look new and fantastic! However, be careful how many times you are washing your hair. Every time you use shampoo on your hair, the color fades a little more. Overall, semi-permanent hair dye lasts about 20 washes before your natural color will start coming back.
