You have spent many a frustrating day at the barber shop getting ready to cut your friend’s hair. You know the drill: put on your best suit, grab your clippers, and get started on your friend’s bad hair day. Then you cringe as you realize that the only way to do this without cutting your own hair is to borrow or buy a cheap pair from the discount store. Don’t worry; you can avoid spending money on these useless purchases for next weekend. This article will show you how to cut your friends’ hair the right way, without damaging it. Just to be safe, of course.
First, before anything else, talk to your friend who usually cuts his or her hair. Get some advice and tips on how to properly trim a hair. Do they always use the same clippers? What kind of clipper are they using, and why? How often do they go to the salon, and what’s their routine like?
One common problem among men is receding hairlines. It is caused by hair loss, and is the easiest and least expensive way to fix this problem. Simply start by clipping in a few sections of your hair. Then, use a good hair serum to moisturize your hair, and apply a leave-in conditioner. Leave your hair in the conditioner for at least a few hours before styling it. Doing this a few times a month should bring your hair back to a decent length within a few months, depending on how fast your hair grows.
Another problem with receding hairlines is excessive body-shaking bangs. Usually, this is caused by either excessive dryness or by using the wrong brush when brushing your hair. To combat both of these problems, you should get a humidifier or an electric airbrush. Using an airbrush will give your hair an extra lift and add volume, so your bangs don’t look quite so “punky”. This is also a great way to improve the volume of your bad hair day.
Of course, there are some steps you can take to ensure the healthiest hair possible, no matter what kind you have. One is to see your hair stylist at least once a month, and always ask to see the best shampoo, conditioner, and heat protectant she has to offer. If you’re feeling a little adventurous, schedule an appointment to try out new haircare products at the salon; there’s nothing wrong with that, either.
After several months of healthy hair growth, you may find that you just need a break from the routines that are keeping you up at night. You can go for months without even having to visit the salon, but for some people this is the only way they can get away from the damaging effects of chemicals on their hair. If you have the time to take off a few hours every now and then to allow your hair to regrow, that’s probably a good idea. Just make sure that you keep those visits to the salon scheduled so that you know how long your hair will be gone for!
Once your hair has come back to its full volume and strength, you’ll want to make sure it stays that way. Some damage to your hair can be repaired in the short term, but in the long run you could end up doing a lot more damage if you don’t get it fixed. Even if you do decide to visit the salon on occasion, you should know what’s going on in your hair’s life while you’re not there. Leaving too much hair in the water, for example, can cause your hair to become brittle and break easily.
One day, just remember how important it is to give your hair a break. Yes, we all need it, but not as much as we want to. When you visit the salon, you can relax knowing that your hair isn’t being pulled or shoved in different directions every five minutes. Relaxing will help your hair stay healthy and strong for the rest of the day, and it’ll definitely pay off when you head out of the door for the day!
