Everyone knows the basics of taking care of long hair, but the needs of short hair are quite different. Here are some pro tips to help:
Comb Less Frequently
Short hair doesn’t need to be brushed as often as long hair and it is less likely to tangle. Brushing it through with fingers is generally enough to shape and style it a bit. For styling use your fingers to give you the shape lifting where you need to get volume at the root.
Use A Cotton Bud To Get Rid Of Flyaway Strands
We’ve all been there, you wake up in the morning and your hair is defying every natural law possible and sticking up in eight different directions. If you don’t have time for a shower, then wet a cotton wool ball and dab it at your hair to get rid of misbehaving root lift stick outs.
Tame Volume With Products
A shorter cut maximizes natural volume so the trick is to utilize products that add texture and hold. It’s important for short hair to have structure so finding the right products is essential.
Trim Your Hair Regularly
Trim your hair every three to six weeks. This may sound excessive, but shorter hairstyles, especially closer crops, require a little more maintenance than a usual cut. Shirt hair is all about getting a great cut. Getting the structure, length and thickness right for your face shape is key.
Wash Your Hair Daily
Short hairstyles require more washing. This is because they can become greasy faster, although the exact number of times your hair will need washing will depend on how your hair responds to the level of oil produced by the scalp.
If you do decide to wash daily, try investing in a moisturizing mask, like out Keratin Hair Mask, to help combat any dryness. You may also want to invest in a better shampoo like out Revitalizing Moroccan Shampoo infused with Argan Oil, Biotin and Keratin, if you will be washing more regularly.
Rinse With A Blast Of Cold Water For Extra Shine
Next time you wash your hair, finish it off with a quick blast of cool water. It will sooth the heat damage done during showering, which can often result in splintered cuticles.
