How To: Take Care Of Your Hair

Many girls (or Guys!)  in sixth grade have damaged or poorly taken care of hair. How should we fix that? A trip to Tony and Guy Academy  yielded a stylish haircut, and great hair tips. Here are some I’ve collected and learned:

Brushing hair- When brushing your hair, get a brush that is suited for your hair type. After a shower, it’s OK to brush hair it is better to comb your hair than to brush it, as brushing weakens it and can cause it to break and get damaged.

Tips on Washing Hair-

-Use Lukewarm to Cold water when cleaning hair     – When Conditioning hair, leave it in for a few minutes, then wash it out at the end of your shower    -Wash your hair every day if it’s oily, every other day if it’s normal, and every 2-3 days if it’s dry. -Instead of using shampoo each time you take a shower, co-wash it *(using conditioner only). Don’t do this if you get sweaty/ and or hair gets dirty easily.

Shampoo and Conditioner

When shopping for shampoo and conditioner, get one that is good for your hair type. Curly, Straight, Frizzy, Weak, Thick , Thin, etc. Leave in conditioner is optional, but great for your hair. For more styling tips on your hair type, ask around, and the internet has great resources.

*This doesn’t mean to not shampoo your hair! Do it once to twice a week if you choose to co-wash it.
