Women spent a considerable amount time taking care of their hair and not to mention quite a sum on hair care products and salon hair treatments. From spending ten to fifteen minutes a day to an hour, no doubt that taking care of the mane is a preoccupation for everyone in order to look good.

But not everyone is blessed with those 'shampoo commercial' type of hair. And no one wants to have a bad hair day, as it usually leads to multiple trips to the mirror or bathroom just to tame your tresses every hour or so. So it is understandable why people do a lot of things to manage their hair. Here are a few helpful do's and don'ts to get gorgeous hair without spending much.

6 Simple Haircare Hacks

1. Never leave the house without drying your hair.

Drying the hair can either be by hot or cold air through a blow dryer or air drying. Drying the hair tames the loose tresses and straightens out the hair locks. One can use a fan or hair dryer whichever is available. If you want to achieve the tousled or just-got-out-of-bed effect, dry hair sections using your fingers to run through it or flip through during the drying process. For a slick and smooth style, use a flat brush to achieve this.

2. Cool or hand-dry your hair as much as possible
To avoid hair damage, always choose to dry your hair either using cool air settings on the hairdryer or via fan. A hair dryer has different settings and can be set on low or on cool air depending on the user's preferences.

3. Go for regular bi-monthly hair treatment.

Shampoos and other hair products like mousse, gels, sprays pile chemicals and residues on the hair that can lead to dullness and lost of sheen in your locks. This recipe for build up often leads to limp and dry hair. So every once in a while, make sure to get your hair some needed treatment, some of which can be done at home without spending much when you go to hair salons.

Many hair treatment products can be purchased directly from beauty supply sections for 'hot oil' or 'hair spa' to give you hair its needed shine boost. These pre-packed hair spa preparations come with easy to follow instructions so you are on your way to pampering that crowning glory in no time.

4. Find a great hairstylist.

Finding a great hairstylist can involve trial and error but worth the effort in the end. Find one which will help you in getting the proper hair cut or hair care that suits your face and personality. It helps a lot to create a good working relationship with your hair stylist.

Never fall for suggestions from over aggressive hair stylists telling what cut you need to get just because he has the same cut or that it is the trendy thing right now.

Having a haircut involves compromise, what you want to achieve with your hair based on your personal assessment while the hair stylist with his training, knowledge, and experience will aid you in getting a cut that suits your individual personality. Find one that will ultimately work best for you in the long run, 'hair wise' and 'look wise' of course!

6. Get a good haircut that suit you and maintain it via regular trim

Getting a regular trim is good to keep your hair healthy and avoid split ends cause by over-drying and hair product damage. Don't scrimp on this one. You'll be having that cut 24/7 so a disastrous cut could literally ruin your life. And tip generously when you are satisfied with the job done.

7. Eat healthy and drink lots of water.

This is the easiest part. The hair needs nutrients to grow long and resist breakage. Did you now that your diet shows not only in your skin but also in your hair? It would not be much of effort to incorporate healthy food choices in your diet packed with vitamins necessary to boost healthy hair growth (Vitamin C, B3 and B7).

Pack on healthy and organic vegetables and fruits. Do not forget to hydrate with water and healthy fresh juices anytime.
