Hair care is tiring. We’ll just put it out there and say hair care is tiring. With the numerous things to be done before you have smooth hair, you might as well sleep off. Hair care has an array of things to be done or used while also keeping our cool, so making life easier for you and helping you is what we do at Cosmetize. Read on to know more about hair care tips for all healthy hair types that won’t cost a bomb but still help you have a head full of luscious hair.
(1) Lukewarm Water
That hot shower that you love, your hair doesn’t. Hot showers are taboo for hair because they make your hair brittle and drier & it also may damage your hair texture & colour. Hot hair over-cleanses your hair because it strips your hair of the oils. A lukewarm water shower is advisable, and a cold water rinse is the best. Also, a hot shower dries your skin as well.
(2) Condition It Right
Make this a rule put in stone, DO NOT CONDITION YOUR ROOTS. Roots tend to get oily, so a hair conditioner will only weigh it down further. Conditioning from mid-lengths to the ends of your hair is perfect. You can distribute it by using a broad toothed comb and distributing it evenly. It also helps you detangle yourself without yanking out your hair.
If you have fairly fine hair, it’s best to avoid using too much conditioner as this can weigh your hair down. If you do use almond oil-rich or any type of natural conditioner, make sure you only apply it to the ends of your hair, not the roots.
(3) Shampooing Your Scalp
Shampoo your scalp and not your ends or even the basic lengths of your wet hair because it’s the scalp that is oilier than the ends or even the mid-lengths. As you wash off the shampoo it will slide down your hair and wash off the dirt. It will keep the hair hydrated and save it from dullness & dry hair.
You can also try olive oil, coconut oil-rich shampoo on your scalp & hair to make your hair & scalp healthy. You can also try dry shampoo as it works by soaking up oil and grease from the scalp and hair, which helps to provide a fuller, cleaner looking head of hair without water. Coconut oil can remove even the most stubborn sebum build-up from hair follicles accelerating hair growth, protect your hair & scalp from sun damage, and improve dandruff.
(4) Thorough With Your Rinsing
Thoroughly cleanse and rinse your hair. Any leftover product results in product build-up, which makes your hair heavy, dust and pollution attach themselves to your hair making it dirtier. Leading you to wash more frequently and causing more damage to your hair, so you see it’s a vicious cycle.
(5) Blow Dry With a Brush
Once you wash your hair with the best shampoo & conditioner, squeeze out the excess water and towel dry it. Blow drying is not an easy task. You can end up with a cuckoo’s nest on your head if you aren’t careful. You can end up with a head full of frizz. Use a round brush and push it straight down from root to tip whilst using the hairdryer in the same direction.
(6) Change Your Hair Parting
Having hair, which is parted differently now and then, helps with the roots getting a lift. This also allows your hair to breathe and also gives your roots the lift the need.
As much as we love ponytails (you know we all do!) they aren’t great for your hair all the time. They make your hair weak, make your roots frayed as well. Use hair bands & tie looser ponytails that will not harm your hair and break them as you wear them. Opt to leave your hair open, more often than not.
Hair is a lot of our character put into one place, hair can also be managed and changed as per our liking, so make sure you are kind to your hair. Also, to maintain strong hair, you need to eat a balanced diet that includes protein, essential fatty acids, amino acids, vitamins, leafy vegetables and minerals & use hair care products. Make sure you love your hair as much as you would love your dog or your partner or your parents, they are all important! And of course, get your products on Cosmetize.
