Thousands of people in the country are spending small fortunes on products to help improve their looks yet if only they would just follow the basics, many could be saving themselves a lot of money. For instance, getting a trim every 6 to 8 weeks is a very basic tip to help avoid split ends and assist towards a healthier look.
Other useful hair care tips include only using a wide-toothed comb when it is wet and shampooing only at times when it is dirty. Air drying is favourable compared to blow drying and when you have to use products, make sure that you only use products recommended for your type of hair and/or condition by a respectable professional hairstylist. A professional will make sure he or she only recommends the products that will benefit you and not strip your hair of any of it’s natural essential oils or nutrients. Many over the counter products claim to offer false hope and promises of improvements that they do not deliver.
Try not to spend too much time in the sun or chlorine and salt filled swimming pools during the South African summer as too much exposure to these things can cause damage no matter how good the products you are using are. Salons in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban, Port Elizabeth and other parts of the country are not all equal. Choose a salon only from someone you know who has been there and that you can trust and not one you have seen advertised in the local newspaper.
