Bad hair day is a real thing. Isn’t it? Hair adds to the overall look and it’s unbelievable how much they do add. We know right!
We all want to copy that hair model on TV or should I say on Instagram these days, do n’t we?
Well, things get a bit overwhelming when our hair look not lustrous and flowy but fizzy and dead.
But hello, having good hair is not a rocket science. We all can have good hair by following a routine and exposing our delicate hair to lesser amount of chemicals .
Here’s my top tips on how to look after your hair naturally:
Use Chemical Free Shampoos
Lesser the number of chemicals in your shampoo, healthier your hair will be. Go for gentle shampoos that suit your hair type.
Conditioner should always be applied only on the tips of the hair and not on your scalp. Also, make sure to rinse it off thoroughly post application.
Dry Your Hair Naturally
Blow drying can make your hair look good but excessive heat will only damage your hair. So limit it to special occasions only. From air-drying to towel drying after shampoo is a great way to go. Also do not comb wet hair and never go to sleep with wet hair. Be gentle on your hair. Hard rubbing can damage the cuticles of your hair.
Oil your hair
For some reasons, people think oiling as an odd fashioned way of taking care of your hair but I believe old is gold. Pre-shampoo treatments like oiling and massaging improve blood circulation on the scalp, relax your muscles, boost shine and nourish the hair. It also restores moisture content, enables hair growth and repairs split ends. You can choose from coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil, castor oil and the likes. Avoid using mineral oil on your hair.
Use A Wide-toothed Comb
Well hair brushes are trendy. But not really good for hair. Wet hair is fragile and prone to breakage. Let your hair dry and then use a wide-toothed comb to brush your hair. This kind of a comb prevents damage to your hair.
Trim Your Hair Regularly
Trimming ensures healthy hair growth. So get rid of the dead split ends after every 6 to 8 months.
Use Fabric Hair Bands
Use fabric hair bands over the plastic ones. Never pull your hair too tight when making a ponytail or any other hair style.
Never Take Hot Showers
Hot showers strip off natural oil from the hair leaving them fizzy and dead.
If you do not look after your hair, soon it will start having dandruff , hair fall and so on! Worse comes when you opt for chemical treatments as the solution, which further damage your hair.
So go natural with your hair and start looking after them by opting for less chemicals and more ❤️.
