|(I just LOVE Shakira's hair)|
I always thought that a comb would be impossible to get through my hair. For most of my life I just endured using a hairbrush, even though it was sometimes painful, because I thought that's just the way it had to be. Back in the fall, however, when I went on my 'health kick' for my hair, I decided to buy a comb and give it a try.
It turns out I was wrong all these years. It is actually even easier using a wide tooth comb on my hair rather than a brush. This tip may seem a little self explanatory but I though I would share anyway given my apparent prior lack of knowledge on my own hair. Every time a brush went through my hair, I could just feel it being damaged and pulling so much hair out. I am so glad I don't do that to myself anymore.
A comb is so much better and easier on curly, wavy, or just plain thick hair. My comb is from Conair and I got it from Target but you can acquire a wide tooth comb from basically anywhere for really cheap.
My other hair tip is very simple and requires purchasing nothing: rinsing your hair with cold water. This is best to do at the end of a shower right before you get out. I always heard about this but never really thought it made much of a difference. Recently, though, I found a more effective way of utilizing the cold water on my hair.
Before I just simply turned cold water on my hair for a few seconds and that was it. Now I've been really working the cold water into my hair and making sure I used my hands to, essentially, smooth out my hair. Seriously, using cold water on my hair has worked wonders. Definitely makes my hair a lot smoother, shinier, and softer.
These are my latest hair tricks and I highly recommend trying them if you suffer from dry hair like I do. Please let me know of any holy grail hair tips or ticks you use!
