5 SHORT HAIR MAINTENANCE STRATEGY
No matter what hairstyle you decide to keep, you need a proper hair care routine. Looking good doesn’t stop at going to the salon and having a great hairdo or haircuts. It continues outside the salon- as a matter of fact, a great haircut or hairdo is useless and a waste of money if not maintained properly.
Shorter hair is the new black. Even though longer hair is the norm, celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Keira Knightley, Gennifer Goodwin, Emma Watson and many others have ditched longer hair in favor of a shorter look. And many other celebrities are following the trend.
In addition to its comfortability, short hair is easier to manage than long hair hence whether you have a choppy bob, an ultra-fem pixie or something in between the lines, the following tips will help you in maintaining it.
You need to trim your hair as often as once a month to maintain its shape and make styling easier. People with shorter hairstyles need to get more trimming than people with other forms of haircuts. How often you should get your hair trimmed should be decided by your stylist because your stylist knows your specific hair needs. Hence, in order to maintain a short haircut properly, make an appointment to meet your stylist at least once in a month.
2. Reduce the frequent use of styling products
Flat irons, curling wand and blow dryers often damage the hair shaft. So it’s advisable to opt for a hairstyle that does not require heat styling tools. According to Bebeautiful.in, “One of the easiest ways to style short hair is by spritzing a texturizing spray on damp hair before going to sleep and waking up with beautiful waves.”
3. Reduce Shampoo and Conditioner Usage
Short hair does not require much shampooing and conditioning like other hairstyles. So use less amount of shampoo and conditioner while washing your hair scalp. Using too much shampoo can cause scalp irritation and make your hair frizz.
4. Avoid Using Blow Dryer
Allow your hair to dry with natural air. Using a blow dryer can cause your hair to frizz because short hair can get frizzy easily. Even if you must blow dry, use the low heat setting.
5. Pay attention to your scalp
When it comes to haircare, taking care of your scalp is very important. Great hair care starts from the scalp and what you eat because nutrition affects hair health. Along with taking care of your hair strands, also take good care of your scalp by avoiding chemical based beauty and hair care products. Using chemical based beauty and hair care products can cause scalp build up. Scalp build up is a condition caused by residue from hair products. Many hair products contain waxy substances that can stick to your scalp. Product build up can lead to frizzy, flaky, irritated, itchy and dry scalp.
