Sometimes, no matter how hard we try, our hair refuses to cooperate with us. While we're stuck with frizzy hair that would put Hagrid's mane to shame, there are a select few girls who have glossy, long, luscious hair with not a split-end in sight. We've all coveted the locks of girls with great hair, and there's no shame in admitting that. But even more so, all we've wanted to do is get our hands on the deepest, juiciest secrets behind their envious mane.
Luckily, attaining picture-perfect, gorgeous locks isn't just a distant dream anymore. It's actually pretty easy, and there are a few things you can incorporate into your routine to get great hair with no stress. Read on to know the five rules every girl with great hair swears by.
01. Avoid heat styling as much as possible
Heat styling may make your hair look great for half a day, but they're not doing your locks any favours in the long run. Women with great hair understand that and stay away from heat stylers as much as possible. However, they too understand that you've gotta heat style your hair sometimes, so here's a piece of advice: always use a spray-in heat protectant. We recommend using the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray since it'll shield your hair from some major heat damage, and give you shiny, salon-like strands too.
02. Mask up
One of the biggest mistakes you may be making is not using a hair mask. While not exactly a secret, hair masks are a fantastic way to ensure your hair is on point since it provides that extra nourishment that your mane may be craving. Opt for the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask, which comes with the goodness of marula oil. Marula oil nourishes the hair from root to tip without making it overly greasy and hydrates the hair. So if you've been tackling dry, frizzy, brittle hair, this one's for you.
03. Go for regular trims
Even if you're growing your hair out! Every girl with good hair knows that letting split-ends accumulate is the worst way to take care of your hair — and that's why regular trims are important. A haircut every six to eight weeks is necessary to prevent split ends from forming, so if you've been putting off that haircut because you're feeling a tad bit lazy, consider this your reminder to chop off your strands. Don’t want to visit a salon? No worries. You can easily trim your hair at home if you follow all the steps right.
04. Add a serum to your post-wash care
Many people refuse to acknowledge the importance of post-hair wash care, which is why there's a world of difference between great hair and hair that's brittle, dull, and frizzy. Adding a serum to your post-wash hair care routine can up the quality of your hair, and the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Hair Serum is one of the best there is. The serum is formulated with camellia oil and keeps the hair moist and supple, and adds instant vibrancy and shine. Just massage a few drops from mid-length to ends on damp hair and get ready to flaunt easy-to-style, manageable and frizz-free tresses.
05. Embrace a healthy-hair diet
Did you know that girls with great hair embrace a hair-healthy diet? We're talking about a nutrient-rich diet that consists of shine and growth-boosting foods! Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids like fatty fish, eggs, leafy vegetables, berries, etc., help hair growth. Added bonus: you get great skin and a healthier lifestyle too.
