Do you suffer from wild hair? It seems that some people can wake up in the morning with perfectly tousled hair that they could either leave as is, or simply brush through to get a more uniform look. For most, however, that is definitely not the case. People with curly, dry, flat and frizzy hair have to put a lot more effort into controlling their hair – and the result is very unpredictable. There are so many factors that affect how unruly hair can end up looking. Weather, length, and thickness of hair, when it was most recently washed…the list is endless. Some days it can look exactly how you want it without touching it, but sometimes no matter what you do, it just won’t cooperate. If you’ve experienced this, you know how irritating it feels. However, there are a few steps that you can take to lessen the hassle of trying to tame your wild hair.
Tips for Taming Wild Hair
The temperature you wash your hair in matters. Using a slightly lower temperature of the water can actually make it easier to style unruly hair once it’s dry. For extra shine, quickly rinse your hair in cold water after washing as well. There are also various products you can add to your hair before, during and after washing that can help with dryness, frizziness, dandruff and a number of other issues. You can get shampoos, conditioners, leave-in conditioners, serums, sprays – and so on.
Make sure to leave in your conditioner for enough time. Check the bottle and if it says to wait five minutes, follow the instructions! If your hair is dry, deep conditioners that you apply about once a week can help your hair lock-in moisture. Leave-in conditioners are also a great solution for dry or frizzy hair to give lasting smoothness and manageability.
Avoid heat styling your hair too often. Though stick straight hair or the perfect curls look great, only use heat products on your hair when it’s really necessary. Cheap straighteners and curlers especially can destroy hair with high temperatures. When you need to use them, because they do make your hair look amazing, make sure the products are reputable and keep them on low heat to avoid heat damage and hair breakage.
Keep your wild hair looking its best by always taking the best care of it. And don’t forget to trim it at least every six months to get rid of split-ends and keep it more healthy as it grows.
