Whether we want to admit it or not, most of us want to change our looks in some fashion. Maybe in a large sense, or maybe just something small and simple to better accentuate our natural beauty. We all know that makeup has helped many women look prettier and have more confidence in themselves because they are pleased with their appearance. You always want to accentuate the positive features that you have. Not only will this help to make your best features pop out more, it will help to draw attention away from the less desirable features you possess. While the first thing we usually think about when talking about makeovers is actual makeup, we don’t want to forget about hair when we speak of making over ourselves. Some of us have curly hair while others of us have straight hair. We might like what we naturally have, or we might try to do the opposite. I know I have naturally wavy/curly hair and hate it, so I straighten my hair almost every day. If you are like me, you need to make sure and take care of your hair so it remains healthy and strong. Make sure you get a shampoo and conditioner that are good and help to maintain the health of your hair. Also, look for product to utilize if you flat iron your hair regularly like myself so the heat isn’t as damaging to the hair follicles.

No matter what hair type you have, you aren’t immune to getting split ends. So how can we take care of our hair to better prevent split ends from happening? One thing we can do is wash our hair every other day. This gives our body the chance to repair our hair naturally with oil. I’ve started doing this as of late, and I’ve noticed a big difference. My hair doesn’t seem as dried out for one thing. Another thing to take into consideration is the kind of brush you use on your hair. You want a cushioned paddle brush with flexible bristles for your every day brush. When brushing start with the ends of your hair, work up to the midsection, and then finally brush from the roots all the way down to the ends. Another tip is to shampoo your scalp first and then let the residue trickle down to the ends of your hair. Don’t pick up all of your hair into one large mass and start sudsing away. Thinking opposite now, you only want to condition the ends of your hair. Leave the conditioner in for a couple minutes to allow it to soak, and then rinse out. This will prevent the hair from producing excess oil that is unwanted. Furthermore, when toweling drying your hair you want to wrap the towel around your hair and then squeeze in different locations versus crazily rubbing the towel in every which direction. This will help to not break apart your hair follicles causing the split ends. Lastly, if you are like me and regularly straighten your hair, make sure you guide your flat iron down strands of your hair with a brush first. This will make sure your hair is getting flat ironed straight and that an end doesn’t get bent making it more susceptible to splitting.
