Hair texture and hair volume
It’s crucial to know the texture and shape of your hair, if you’re serious about taking care of your hair and keeping it healthy. Without knowing your hair’s texture, you can’t choose relevant cosmetics, treatments and procedures which would help you define your hair. This aspect is especially important if you’re experiencing hair problems or if your hair has tendencies to be brittle, sensitive and fragile. Lets consider fine and wavy hair for a second. This type of size and shape is particularly prone to damage, as its structure easily absorbs humidity, and the hair easily loses shape. In other words, it usually becomes frizzy, with wisps of hair are sticking out in all directions of the world. The main problem for this type of hair is its lack of volume and body. So in order to fix that, special methods needs to be applied – what can you do to make your head feel and look full, volumized and thick?
Secrets of enhancing hair volume
A lot of people ask themselves what the secrets are behind adding volume to your hair. Luckily, there are many ways of achieving good hair volume, in a fairly short amount of time. All you really have to do is shampoo and condition your hair regularly, dry them with a towel instead of a drier, and finish this process with addition of specialised volumizing and styling products. And voila this should do the trick. But actually, this process is a tad more complicated. Firstly, your shampoos and conditioners must be carefully picked – they can’t be randomly chosen from a drugstore shelf. They need to be designed specifically for your type of hair i.e. its texture, condition etc. You should also avoid washing your hair too often, and don’t apply huge amounts of the conditioner as this will only weaken your hair. It’s also crucial that if you must use an automatic hair dryer, then at least wait until its air-dried a bit. Drying them when they’re still dripping with water will expose them to a lot of unnecessary heat. If you’re in a rush remember that you can always use a towel to get them as dry as possible. Basically, the key is to use as little artificial heat as possible. Finally, all the styling products should be applied carefully and with limits – read the labels carefully regarding their use, and strictly follow the instructions.
Bear in mind that apart from the steps mentioned above, there are other stages of enhancing your hair volume. The fundamental point is that your body should be rightly nourished at all times. There are many hair-friendly diets out there, that recommend frequent consumption of healthy fats like omega3 in fish oils, and vitamins B6 and B12, contained in carrots and other veg. After all, the phrase ‘you are what you eat’ is certainly not a myth! Exercise is also important. If you don’t work out your diet will be a waste. A lot of personal trainers will tell you that diet and exercise go perfectly together. A general healthy lifestyle can visibly affect and improve the look of your hair and body. Those who have sleek, shiny and bouncy hair often treat their bodies with a good diet and good lifestyle – so a pragmatic approach towards living is often the best solution.
