To all the ladies out there, a little hair care goes a long way. The idea is that if you can get your skin to glow, maybe you can get your hair to glow as well.
To compensate for the sun and pollution’s damage to your scalp and hair, it is important to treat them with the same care that you would your skin. Like you would with your skin, your hair deserves a daily multi-step routine of pampering.
Get rid of frizz and damage from your hair for good with this simple daily routine.
1. Wash Hair Regularly
Daily hair washing is not recommended, especially for curly or thick hair. Overwashing removes the protective oils and proteins from your hair and scalp, leaving them dry and brittle. Wash your hair no more than twice or thrice weekly, depending on how oily it tends to get.
When washing your hair, use natural hair care products, such as a shampoo without sulfates. A common side effect of using sulfates is uncontrollable frizz in your hair. If your hair is curly or wavy, you need a specific shampoo. Look around for the best hydrating shampoo you can find, for instance, if you have dry hair.
2. Use Hair Mask After Shower
Compared to regular conditioners, a hair mask is like a super-charged version of your favorite product. Combining different kinds of healthy hair care ingredients like argan and almond can provide deeper nourishment. Since it’s formulated with ingredients that penetrate the hair shaft, you can see a visible difference after just one use.
Apply an organic hair mask afterward to protect your hair from humidity and frizz after using your natural shampoo. If you already have salon-quality hair, it will leave your strands shiny, soft, smooth, and manageable.
3. Detangle Hair Before It Completely Dry
You probably know how frustrating it is to try and untangle your hair when it’s wet. However, detangling it when it’s dry might not be the best idea either. Don’t bother combing it until it’s about halfway dry. If you want your detangler to go on smoothly and reach every strand, try using a few drops of serum first.
4. Avoid Rubbing Hair While Drying
The experts say that when our hair is wet, it is the most fragile and susceptible to damage. You can speed up the process of permanent damage and hair loss by rubbing it harshly with a towel. It can also make hair frizzy, which can be a pain when trying to style it. Use a microfiber towel to dry your hair if you must.
5. Do Not Tie Wet Hair
When hair is wet, not only is it the most elastic, but it is also the most fragile. If you wear your hair in a bun or other tight style, you increase the risk of breakage. Frizz and flyaways are also possible after tying your hair into a ponytail.
Okay, that should clear things up. Taking care of your hair does not end when you get out of the shower. Maintaining healthy hair at home is a lifestyle choice that pays off in the form of healthy, shiny hair.
