It’s a roll of the dice whether or not your hair will cooperate on a given day. Sometimes it lies submissively in place, just perfect and breezy. At other times, it stages a mass revolt against whatever products you apply and the attention you give it. The whole routine makes us want to pull our hair out!
But you’d be surprised to know that how your day behaves on a particular day has a lot to do with your hair care routine, the weather outside, and how healthy your hair is. And even if your hair's attitude fluctuates daily, there are a few constant tips you can follow to ensure that you have a great hair day every day.
01. Use a hydrating shampoo
Listen up! Shampooing every single day is a bad habit. It dries out your hair and strips it of its necessary nourishing oils — in addition to the excess oil and grime you're actually looking to get rid of. Stick to shampooing your hair twice or thrice a week, and when you do, make sure it's a hydrating product like the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Shampoo. Containing a botanical blend of olive oil and camellia oil, the hydration staple will nourish your hair and protect dry hair at all costs. Lastly, when you wash your hair, remember to only apply shampoo to your roots, not through the length of your hair and massage your scalp.
02. Use a conditioner daily
You've heard of following a shampoo with a conditioner, but have you tried using a conditioner as a standalone rinsing agent? On days when you don't shampoo, conditioning helps keep your hair buoyant but tameable instead of limp and unresponsive. Get yourself a nutrient-rich, sulphate-free conditioner like the TRESemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Conditioner. Its blend of camellia and olive oil will nourish your hair like no other. Plus, it makes your hair smoother, shinier and easier to detangle while ensuring your hair looks salon-styled. Pro-tip: when conditioning, only apply the product on the ends of your hair and not your scalp.
03. Switch up your towel
If you’re still using a big bath towel to dry your hair, we've got news for you. It's not exactly looking good here! You need to switch to a microfiber towel, since it's better suited to help your hair dry quickly without frizz or frustration. If you need even more reason, microfiber towels gently dry your hair while cutting your drying time in half, work well for thick hair, and will give you gorgeous hair every. Single. Time.
04. Avoid heat
Avoiding heat is the best way to make sure your hair stays healthy. Unless you've got a hot date, or you want to occasionally look a little glam, don't even think about going near heat styling tools. And on days that you do, make sure you use a heat protectant such as the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray. It will shield your hair from heat up to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, fight frizz, boost shine and softness to ensure you wake up with 'grammable hair every day.
05. Treat your hair right
Next time you have a face mask night, give your hair a little love too! A hair mask such as the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask can make a world of difference when it comes to hair health. Filled with the goodness of marula oil, the smoothening mask fights frizz, detangles knots, boosts shine, adds softness and tames fly-always. Oh, and did we mention it controls frizz for up to 72 hours? Welcome to your healthiest hair days yet!
