To achieve healthy, lustrous locks, it’s important to go the extra mile and give your hair the extra TLC it deserves. Don’t know where to start? Worry not; we’ve got you covered. We have mapped out a simple, three step routine that you can follow once or twice a week to take your hair care game to the next level. Scroll on…
- Step #1: Exfoliate your scalp
- Step #2: Apply a hair mask
- Step #3: Apply serum to damp hair to avoid tangles and knots
Step #1: Exfoliate your scalp
The first step to improving your hair care routine is introducing exfoliation to it. Just like your skin, your scalp, too, sheds dead skin cells that need to be scrubbed away. Besides the excessive skin cells, dirt and product build up can clog the hair follicles and weaken your hair, causing hair fall. Exfoliating will eliminate all the dirt and impurities, allowing your scalp to breathe and stay healthy.
Here’s how to make your own DIY scalp scrub: You’d need one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, one tablespoon of honey, a few drops of peppermint oil, 1/4 cup of coconut oil and 3/4 cup sugar. Mix all the ingredients together and gently scrub your scalp with it for a few minutes. Once done, shampoo your hair with a clarifying shampoo like the TRESemmé Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo, rinse hair with lukewarm water and hop on to the next step.
Step #2: Apply a hair mask
While regular conditioning is necessary, it is always a good idea to treat your hair with a nourishing hair mask like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask to make it smooth and shiny. After shampooing your hair, apply a generous amount of this hair mask from the mid-length to the ends. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes before rinsing it off with cold water. The marula oil in this mask gives you super-smooth, glossy and conditioned hair. It also makes your hair tangle-free and tames frizziness and flyaways — could you ask for more? We think not!
Step #3: Apply serum to damp hair to avoid tangles and knots
While your hair is still damp from the wash, apply TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum evenly on the lengths of your hair and ends. Make sure to avoid the roots while you are at it. This camellia oil-enriched serum makes your hair shiny and adds bounce to them. What we love is that it also helps make your hair more manageable by controlling the frizz and making it earlier to detangle them.
