First, figuring out whether or not to let our hair air dry or blow dry it. Air drying is very easy if your hair is short or curly. Blow drying is obviously a very nice convenience if you have long or very thick hair. Excessive blow drying can make your hair brittle and dried out especially if it's straight and thin. Blow drying is okay if you're in a rush but make sure to blot it out with a towel first. Use some heat protecting spray before you blow dry. it protects it from the heat and leaves it feeling smooth. Blow dry about six inches from your head and move the dryer all around your head. Towel drying is the best if you have really dry hair, but if you follow the tips above, blow drying will be okay.
Second is how to take care of annoying oil that can ruin a beautiful hair style. First, wash your hair as often as you need to in order to keep your hair clean and fresh.Also, remember to only put conditioner at the ends of your hair and not your scalp. Try to limit oils in your diet, now please don't go crazy but you would be surprised how much that helps. If you need a quick fix, rub some talcum powder into your roots when your hair is dry and wash it out later. Do not brush your hair to much. This releases the oils in your scalp. Lastly, maybe it's as simple as changing shampoo's, ask a hairdresser or stylist to see what they recommend.
Last but not least, we all know the damage that straighteners can do to our locks. Here is some helpful insight that will minimize damage and maximize results. Number one, condition your hair often, this will help keep it smooth and healthy. Secondly, use products specially made for your hair type, it makes a bigger difference than you realize. Next, say "adios" to split ends by having them removed every 2-3 months to keep your hair looking perfect. Lastly, give your hair a break every once in a while so that you're not frying it every singe day.
