Hair is a main part of our personality. If they are soft and beautiful, we look gorgeous even in normal dressing, hairs give us decent look. Gorgeous, Soft hair is a common goal. However, life can get the best of your hair — whether due to aging, lifestyle habits, or poor hair care techniques — many things can damage your already delicate hair cuticles. Over time, natural oils may be stripped from your hair, which can lead to dryness. Still, this doesn’t mean you have to settle for dry, brittle hair.
Having soft, healthy hair is something almost everyone desires, but it can be difficult to know how to achieve it. Healthy hair that has a nice shine and softness comes from daily maintenance and care for your hair. If your hair is dry or damaged it’s not likely going to feel soft, but you can restore life and shine back to your hair by taking care of it and giving it the moisturizing and conditioning it needs. Then, over time your hair should feel smooth and soft.
Before applying anything on your hair you have to know about your hair type whether they are dry, coarse, straight or curly. One thing keeps in mind that hair type changes with age.
1. Coconut oil
Coconut oil is becoming increasingly prevalent in beauty products. Coconut oil have good effect on dry hair, there may also be some potential softening benefits for your hair, too.
Coconut oil itself can penetrate deep into the skin — some of these same effects may be seen in the hair shaft.
You can look for products already infused with coconut oil, or you can apply pure oil to your hair after you shampoo.
2. Olive oil
Olive oil is well-studied for role in hair care. It’s thought that olive oil can act as a barrier against water, which can help prevent water molecules from stretching and damaging the cuticle.
The downside is that this sort of barrier can also make your hair oily. For best results, apply a small amount of olive oil in a thin, even layer throughout the ends of your hair once a week.
3. Don’t wash with hot water.
Hot water can cause damage to dull, dry hair.
You can also make your hair softer and shinier by rinsing your hair with cool water when you’re done conditioning. This will help rinse out any excess product without stripping out moisture.
4. Go easy with heated tools.
Blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons are staples for many hairstyles. However, prolonged, high heat can create bubbles in your hair cuticle leading to damaged hair that can then break off. If you must use heated tools, consider the following tips:
• apply a heat protectant prior to each use
• use the lowest heat setting possible
• never use on extremely wet hair — let your hair air dry for a little bit first
• take weekly breaks to help your hair recover
5. Use a weekly hair mask.
• Plant oils can be an effective way to add much-needed moisture to dry hair. But if you’d rather not mess with pure oils, you can look for a ready-to-use hair mask instead.
• Used on a weekly basis, a hair mask can help your hair draw in moisture more effectively for softer hair over time. Apply on damp hair after shampooing, then rinse out after five minutes.
