Have you always dreamed of having the luxurious, shiny hair that you see in the commercials? With the right products and routine, your hair goals are 100% possible. Take a moment to think about your current hair care routine. Are you including the following steps?
Shampoo, Conditioner, and Brushes
Take your time washing your locks! Start by thoroughly soaking your hair with warm (not hot) water. Spend about 3 minutes scrubbing your scalp. You’ll want to spend more time there since that is where most oils and dirt accumulate. Then, slowly work the shampoo down the rest of your hair down to the tips. Rinse, and apply conditioner to the ends of your hair. Now, here’s the key! While the conditioner is still in your hair, brush your hair with a wide toothed comb or boar bristle brush. Brushing your hair in this state makes it easier to take out tangles and causes less breakage.
Don’t Blow Dry Often
The hot air from a blow dryer can cause damage to your hair by stripping it of its natural oils, which overtime, can lead to frizz, split ends, and breakage. If you must blow dry your hair, try setting your hair dryer at a lower temperature, apply heat protectant, and don’t blow dry your hair when it’s sopping wet.
Hydrate Your Hair Regularly
There are several ways you can actively hydrate your hair throughout the day. Drink plenty of water, apply a deep conditioning hair mask and nourishing oil often, and sleep with a silk pillowcase (to prevent breakage while you sleep).
