In today’s fast fashion world, damaged hair is a common woe. Every girl has to go through some issues like hair fall, dandruff, rough hair, frizzy hair and so on. The point is how do we improve our hair care routine? With less time in hand and lesser mind space, an easy hair care routine is all we need. A hair care routine that is sustainable and effective. Here are 8 Sure Shot Tips for Healthy Hair.
8 Sure Shot Tips for Healthy Hair
1. DON’T WET YOUR HAIR TOO OFTEN
Water forces the cuticles to swell up. When the cuticles swell up, your hair becomes frizzy and prone to dandruff. This leads to hair fall. Don’t wash your hair more than you have to. Make a schedule according to the needs of your hair and stick to it.
2. DECIDE YOUR SHAMPOO
Do not change the shampoo frequently and worry about the quantity of sulphates or chemicals. In the initial stage, explore with shampoos but decide one shampoo towards the end that suits your hair.
Get smarter about your shampoo because all shampoos tend to strip oil and colour from the hair. But you need to choose the shampoo that brings the best out of your hair.
3. KEEP THE EXTRAS ASIDE
Using harsh hair sprays and other such chemicals will give you a dazzling salon finish look. But using such products daily would lead to nothing but damage. Keep the extras for parties and special days.
4. USE CONDITIONER
There are plenty of myths about conditioners but the ground fact is that after applying the shampoo, a conditioner is a must. Particularly when you use high-quality brand shampoos, conditioners are necessary.
Another thing that you need to remember about the conditioner is that you should leave it on your hair for at least 2 to 5 minutes and then rinse it with water. This allows more residual conditioner to be left on the hair which makes your hair smooth and healthy.
5. DON’T MAKE HEAT APPLIANCES YOUR BEST FRIEND
We all know that heat is worst for the hair. So one way to protect your hair from damage is to use a heat protectant spray. This will make the heat less harsh for your hair. But the ground rule is not to overheat or overuse the heat appliances.
6. DRY YOUR HAIR
After a hair wash, air dry your hair or use a hairdryer very gently. You don’t need to do it professionally like in a salon. Just run your fingers across your hair and dry it.
The reason behind this is when your hair is wet, a plethora of dust sticks to your scalp which in turn causes dandruff and then it leads to hair fall. So make sure you dry your hair at the earliest to prevent the damage.
7. SAVE OLD T SHIRTS
Don’t be so harsh with the towel. Save your old t-shirts as the normal fabric does not affect the cuticle as much as the towel does. You don’t have to work hard to smoothen the hair if you use an ordinary cloth.
8. TOWEL DRY AFTER A SHAMPOO AND THEN USE CONDITIONER
This is a very subjective tip but is very useful and is a must-try.
Once you wash your hair with a shampoo, towel dry it for just a minute and then apply the conditioner and leave it on your hair for five minutes. It makes the hair very smooth and shiny.
