Comb your short hair regularly
To keep your short hair smooth, silky and sleek all the time, combing it regularly is necessary. A wide-tooth comb is better than a normal comb as it can reduce hair loss. Besides, it is obvious that short hair is less likely to be messy or tangled in comparison with long hair and medium hair. For this reason, you can also use your fingers to comb through your short hair without using a comb.
Protect your short hair from harmful factors
Environmental damages (such as UV rays, dust, etc), styling heat and toxic chemicals are the main factors which damage your hair extensions everyday.
The fact is that your short hair will become dry, brittle and prone to breakage if it is in direct contact with UV rays. Therefore, you should safeguard your dyed hair from the sun by wearing a hat when going out and tie your hair neatly to avoid sun exposure and dust as well. Sunscreen spray for hair is indispensable, too.
The heat from styling tools can damage the hair cuticle, make your hair drier and lead to split ends. So, try to limit the use of these styling tools, especially hair dryer. Instead of using dryer at high temperature, it’s better to let your hair dry naturally.
Apart from damages from environment and styling tools, toxic chemicals found in hair styling products can also result in damaged hair. Not only do they make hair dry and lifeless but also lead to some scalp problems.
