Every woman wants her crowning glory to look healthy and lustrous at all times, but we know that’s not possible. Bad hair days are normal, and every woman has to deal with them once in a while. However, if you have more bad hair days than good ones, then that’s a cause for concern.
But worry not, we’ve got you covered. If you are tired of hiding your mane behind scarves and tricky hairstyles, then we may have some effective tips that will keep your hair looking great. Here’s what you need to do.
- 01. Use the right amount of product
- 02. Rinse hair with lukewarm water
- 03. Protect hair from the sun
- 04. Minimise heat styling
- 05. Be gentle with wet hair
01. Use the right amount of product
Apart from using the right products for your hair type, it is also essential to use the right amount. If your shampoo and conditioner are making your hair too dry or weighing it down, then the fault may not be with the product but in how much you’re using. On average, two teaspoons of shampoo should be enough. Concentrate on the scalp and mid-lengths — the ends don’t require as much cleaning. Two quarter-sized dollops of conditioner applied from mid-shaft to the ends is enough.
02. Rinse hair with lukewarm water
The temperature of the water also plays a vital role in how your hair looks eventually. Don’t shower with hot water, as it can damage your tresses and make them frizzy. Use lukewarm water to wash your hair and finish it off with a cold rinse at the end. This will give your hair a healthy shine.
03. Protect hair from the sun
The rays of the sun can be pretty damaging for your tresses. It can dehydrate your hair and lead to split ends. Protect your hair by limiting your time in the sun and apply a leave-in conditioner every alternate day to combat damage. The TIGI Bed Head Ego Boost Leave-in Conditioner and Split End Mender moisturises the hair, making it feel softer and easier to comb. Apply a few drops from mid-shaft to end for gorgeous locks.
04. Minimise heat styling
Heat styling is as damaging for your hair as the rays of the sun. To hide a series of bad hair days, don’t resort to heat styling, as it will only make the condition of your hair worse. Instead, use heat styling only when necessary and don’t forget to spritz some heat protectant before you style your tresses. The Tresemme Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray shields your hair from heat, fights frizz, boosts shine and adds softness to your hair.
05. Be gentle with wet hair
Your hair is the weakest when it is wet. You need to be extra gentle with it during this time. Avoid rubbing it against the towel or brushing it to remove tangles. Do not blast the hairdryer on full to dry it quickly. All these things will make it weak, dry and prone to breakage. Lightly dab the towel to absorb excess oil, use your fingers to detangle the knots, and wait till your hair is about 70% dry to use the hairdryer.
