Our hair is often a distinctive part of our personality, a way in which we express ourselves. Of course, this doesn’t mean that your hair has to be 100% perfect all of the time. In fact, in some cases, our willingness to make our hair look utterly on-point at all times can be a real hindrance.
If you find that you cut your hair often, dye it repeatedly or never feel that happy with it, then you may be suffering from dysmorphic thinking, as it were. Most likely, your hair looks absolutely fine, it’s just your attitude towards it that changes, or rather, you’re trying to perfect something which is already absolutely fantastic.
In this post, then, we’ll discuss how to better reset your relationship with your hair, and where to get started in that capacity. Without further ado, you might consider some of the following advice:
GET A SALON-QUALITY CUT
When you head to a salon in order to get their expert advice, use top-quality products, and ensure a professional treats and cares for your hair, you get to see how someone trained for years in a specific artisanal craft considers your style. This can help you look at your own style with more security, feel that the investment has been worth it, and also ask for advice if you need it. For instance, Vixen and Blush are known as the premiere salon in London, providing you all of that and more. Sometimes, it’s good to get that impartial, insightful support to help us with our decisions. It’s not easy managing your hair, so a little support like this makes a big difference.
NOURISH WITH NEW PRODUCTS
It’s good to try new products that nourish your hair, from those that support with mineral replenishment, aftercare for hair dying, or simple ones that keep your hair clean in between washes. Certain sprays to help your hair become more manageable can be a great place to start, especially if it’s uncooperative in the warmer or colder weather. Expensive is not always better, but cruelty-free, vegan options often are. Moreover, with more products on the market for undeserved hair types, like 4C hair, you’re sure to find something reliable.
KEEP A SIMPLE STYLE
It’s good to simplify things for a while to reset your perspective with your hair and come back to its natural look. In some cases, this might be growing it out, keeping a simple bob, layering it and leaving it, or cutting a fringe and enjoying that simple, sleek look. In other words, a simple style, like dressing simply but tastefully for a while, can help reset your tastes, and what you think you need, and also helps you take some of the neuroses you may have built up in its management. You’re also sure to let your hair heal itself more readily, and as you go forward, this might be all that matters.
With this advice, we hope you can begin to reset your relationship with your hair – don’t worry, many of us need to do it from time to time.
