Most of us spend a lot of time pampering and nurturing our skin, but forget to extend the same sort of TLC to our hair. And even if we do, let’s be honest, we aren’t exactly regular with it. This ends up damaging our hair and making it look lackluster.

Since February is the month of love, why not shower some on yourself (or your hair, rather)? 

Below, we have listed five simple yet effective ways to pamper your strands and show them just how much you love them!

 

01. Use heat protection

If you are someone who uses heat styling tools on a regular basis, a heat protectant spray is a must-have on your beauty shelf. This is because heat causes serious hair damage and leaves your hair dry and frizzy. But, using a hair protectant spray helps to protect your hair for up to 450 degrees, which means that you do end up doing your hair a huge favour.

An amazing way to deal with dry, damaged and frizzy hair is to get a hair spa done. Not only is it a great way to relax while the experts work their magic on your hair, but will also give your hair a new lease of life.

We know this sounds contradictive to showing your hair some love, but trust us, it is! Your hair tips tend to dry out over time and split, leading to serious hair concerns such as hair fall, breakage and stunted hair growth. This is why it is best to trim your ends once every six to eight weeks. This is will not only promote healthy hair growth, but will also leave your hair looking shiny and strong.

 

04. Avoid harmful ingredients

Just like your skin, it is really important to read the ingredient list before choosing hair care products. Ingredients such as SLS and silicones can end up leaving a waxy build-up on your scalp which in turn leads to dandruff, breakage and other hair concerns. So steer clear of those.

 

05. Be gentle

When it comes to dealing with your hair, always be extremely gentle. Harsh detangling, scrubbing and excess combing are some common ways to create havoc with your strands. The best way to prevent this is to use the right kind of hair tools and switch to a silk pillowcase. You’ll notice a change in the way your hair looks and feels in no time.
