At Brilliance New York, we work tirelessly to bring you the best hair care products, the best hair care tools, and ultimately the best hair care advice that we possibly can offer. Short of stopping by the salon and bugging your hairdresser about it, that is. So if you want hair care advice for brilliant hair, then simply follow these easy tips and tricks to ensure that your hair is beautiful, vibrant, and most importantly healthy!
Hair Breakage Is Normal, to a Degree
Do you constantly pull strands of hair off of your head and out of your hairbrush? That might cause you to panic a little bit, but fortunately for you, some hair breakage is completely normal. You’re not going bald yet! It’s pretty common and very normal to lose about 100 to 150 strands of hair a day. Which is okay, because you were born with about 100,000 strands of hair and your hair grows back a little bit each day.
While this can still be a little scary, there are some things that you can do in order to limit the amount of breakage that you experience. Some quick and easy things to remember are:
Do not brush wet hair – ripping through wet, tangled hair is a sure-fire way to lose more hair daily. A lifetime of this and you’ll see thinner hair in no time.
Avoid excessive tension – avoid over-wearing hair bands that pull your hair up tightly as this can also cause hair breakage!
Minimize Heat Damage
Now that we have some preventative measures, here’s another preventative piece of hair care advice: avoid too much direct heat at all costs! Heat styling your hair is perfectly okay as long as you remember two things. First, always use a heat protectant spray. This will put a protective barrier between your curling iron and the actual hair strand while allowing you to get incredible hairstyles! Second, always use a hair tool that has accurate temperature control and temperature display. Ideally, you want to stay under about 300 to 350 degrees. We recommend using a digital flat iron or curling wand from BNY that makes seeing the exact temperature of your hair tools easy.
Hydrating and Nourishing Ingredients Are Essential
When it comes to making sure that you hair looks strong, healthy, and beautiful using hydrating hair products that moisturize and deep condition your hair is essential! Taking the time to nourish and hydrate your hair with products that are not only high quality but affordable enough to use regularly plays such a key role in maintaining strong and healthy hair. We recommend using nourishing ingredients like the Moroccan wonder oil, Argan Oil that can be found in a variety of essential hydration products like shampoo, conditioner, hair masks, and hair serums!
