We all want beautiful hair, and we often use a variety of salon treatments to achieve it. If you can afford it, then feel free to treat yourself. However, you can also take a minute to evaluate your hair care routine. What if you can improve it to achieve healthier, more beautiful hair? It would undoubtedly cost you a lot less. Sometimes the key to beautiful hair is to let go of some bad hair habits and adopt some great ones.
To help you get healthy, beautiful hair without breaking the bank, we’ve put together some tips on how to treat your mane well. Follow these tips and watch your hair transform and become more beautiful every day.
1. Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel.
Your hair is at its lowest point when it’s wet, so it’s more likely to break. Gently squeeze out excess water using a smooth cloth, like an old t-shirt, instead of rubbing your hair with a towel. This will help you avoid split ends and damage.
2. Wash your hair regularly
While some say that frequent washing is not good for hair, it is necessary to live in a hot and humid country like the Philippines. After all, you sweat a lot and are often exposed to pollution! Also, because of the climate, your hair tends to get oily, and dirt adheres easily. When sweat, oil and dirt accumulate on your scalp, it can cause dandruff. Beautiful hair doesn’t have dandruff falling out of it, so wash, wash, wash!
3. Massage your scalp when you shampoo.
By massaging your scalp, you will help your locks to absorb the nutrients from the shampoo better. It also helps strengthen the roots of your hair.
4. Rinse your hair with cold water.
Rinsing your hair with cold water seals in the nutrients in the shampoo. This will make your mane soft, smooth and healthy.
5. Take it easy with styling products
It’s not always necessary to use styling products to get your hair styled right. Sometimes it’s just a matter of taking care of your hair and managing it properly. When you have clean, fragrant, well-groomed hair, you’re good to go! However, if you need to use hair spray, gel, wax or mousse, you may want to consider limiting your use to once every other day. This will give your hair days off and allow your strands to breathe and relax.
6. 6. Avoid using styling appliances too often.
Curling irons, blow dryers and flat irons help us get beautiful hair, but they also damage it. Frequent exposure to high temperatures makes hair dry and brittle and gives it a dull appearance. If you go to the supermarket, you may be able to do without the flat iron.
7. Use the right type of products for your hair type.
Just because a shampoo works on your best friend’s hair doesn’t mean it will work on yours. Focus on what your hair needs and make sure your shampoo and conditioner can give it to her. Is your hair flat and limp? Choose a shampoo and conditioner that can help you increase the volume of your hair. Have you just had your hair dyed? Use a conditioner designed for color-treated hair. Do you have curly hair? Invest in hair products that help moisturize your hair, tame frizz and make it soft and manageable.
8. Brush your hair the right way
Is there a right way to brush your hair? The answer is yes. If you’ve brushed your hair from root to tip, chances are you’ve contributed to breakage and damage. It’s time to change this habit. Start by holding your hair at mid-length and brushing your ends first to remove tangles. Make sure that when you brush your hair, your roots aren’t pulled out to avoid damage. Then work your way up, removing knots along the way, until your brush can move smoothly from roots to ends.
With these simple tips, you can get beautiful hair at home. Taking care of your hair is essential. After all, beautiful hair starts with healthy strands.
