We all use hair products to clean and condition our hair as well as to get the hold we need for that special hair style. There are hundreds of hair care products on the market and their not all alike. In general, when selecting the hair care products for your head, avoid using hair styling products with alcohol. Alcohol on your hair can leave it dry and damaged.The experts at Pavlova Salons in Wading River and St. James, NY can recommend the products they’ve tested and approved for long-lasting hair health. When using hair care and styling products, ensure you apply it to your hair and not directly on your scalp. Styling products will clog the pores on your head, preventing them from breathing and suffocating your hair. Overuse of hair styling products on your scalp can lead to thinning hair and hair loss.
Swimming pool water usually contains chlorine and other chemicals to prevent the growth of bacteria and algea. While this is important to keep the pools clean, it is not so good for your hair. Chlorine can dry out your hair and make it brittle and “fried”. If you can, its best to wear a bathing cap to protect your hair, particularly if you’ve just had a salon treatment you want to protect. If you can’t, or won’t wear a cap, be sure to wet your hair with clean, non-chlorinated water so it’s hydrated before going into the pool water. The clean water will soak up the initial water instead of the chlorinated water. Most importantly, when you get out of the pool, shampoo and condition your hair to remove any residual chemicals and restore the moisture and conditioning the pool water may have removed.
Heat is one of your hair’s worst enemies. It’s unavoidable to maintain today’s hair styles, but when using a blow dryer, be sure to use the coolest setting to minimize any heat damage. Be sure not to leave the blowdryer in one spot on your hair for more than a few seconds. You want to keep moving around, drying a little at a time. Keep the hair dryer a good distance away from your hair to protect itand gently use your fingers or a pick to untangle any knots while your hair is drying. To minimize the time you are using the blow dryer on your hair, be sure to get as much of the moisture out with a towel first. This doesn’t mean vigorously rubbing your head and hair, but patting your hair with the towel thoroughly. If you have time, let your hair air dry a little while before applying the blow dryer.
