50+ VERY SHORT HAIRSTYLES FOR WOMEN 2023
Very Short Hairstyles for Women Need Their Own Type of Hair Care
With very short hairstyles, it’s easy to think that you don’t have to really care for your hair in any special way. After all, it’s not like you have that delicate long hair that can break so easily or get wrapped in a maze of tangles. So the tendency with very short hairstyles for women is to devote a minimum of attention to care.
While it’s true that very short hairstyles for women are much less fussy, you need to treat your hair well at all times. Here are a few healthy hair tips to keep in mind:
Keep blow drying at a minimum, whether you have longer or female very short hairstyles. The effect on short hair is the same as on long hair: dull, brittle hair. You may think this is more noticeable on longer hair, but short hair can turn into a fuzzy brush if over dried. And you do not want to have a fuzz helmet! When drying your hair, it’s best to leave it slightly damp.
So, this may lead you to go from one extreme to another: If we shouldn’t let our very short hairstyles dry out, we should condition them. Yes… and no. It’s just as bad to overcondition your hair: You’ll end up with greasy, oily hair that looks better on a pirate. Any conditioning product is always made to go on the ends of your hair, rather than on the roots.
Along the same lines, wash your hair frequently. Some experts recommend washing hair only once a week, but when you do that with very short hairstyles, you can end up with buttered tresses. This is because your hair’s oils tend to be more noticeable on shorter hair. When you brush longer hair, the natural oils are extended along the hair shaft, but on short hair, these oils have nowhere to go.
Finally, if you have permed or color-treated very short hairstyles, stay away from the swimming pool the first few days – or cover your head. When the chemicals in your hair react with the chlorine, you may end up emerging as the green monster. While we’re on the subject of the swimming pool, give your hair some SPF protection, just as you do your skin: The sun is not any more benevolent toward your hair.
Follow these golden rules, and you should have shiny, healthy-looking hair the year around!
