There’s more to hair care than just oiling and washing. While we all have different hair textures and concerns, following a weekly hair care routine is for everyone. Ultimately, we’re all aiming at healthier, stronger and luscious mane.
However, to retain the moisture and to add more shine to your strands, it is important that you know how to properly care for your mane. Hair care mistakes such as over-washing your hair, overusing heat-styling tools and not masking or scrubbing regularly can bring your hair game down drastically.
This new year, make a resolution to thoroughly follow a weekly hair care routine. Here’s your guide to a new start!
Does oil champi transport you back to the good old times when your mom and grand mom pampered your tresses every other night and helped you get a good night’s sleep?
Here’s a gentle reminder that oiling your hair a night before wash day or even an hour before washing can seriously improve the health of your locks. Oiling not only helps add moisture to your mane but also provides it with the essential nutrients it needs for stronger hair follicles and healthier hair growth.
Therefore, it is ideal to oil your hair each time before a hair-wash. If not, then make sure you oil at least once a week using the Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Hair Oil - Rose & Almond Oil.
Oiling regularly will help maintain regular volume and a healthy scalp.
Washing your hair every day is a strict no-no! Over-washing can strip your scalp of natural oils, make it drier and more prone to breakage.
Ideally, you should wash your hair twice or thrice a week depending on how greasy your hair gets, but not more than thrice.
Wash your hair using a gentle shampoo such as the Love Beauty & Planet Tea Tree and Vetiver Aroma Radical Refresher Shampoo and follow it up with the Love Beauty & Planet Tea Tree and Vetiver Aroma Radical Refresher Conditioner.
While shampooing helps you get rid of dirt, debris and grime, conditioning makes your hair softer, smoother and more manageable.
This is something most of us take for granted but post-wash care is extremely crucial. Applying a hydrating hair cream or a frizz-controlling serum can do wonders to your hair. It will not only make hairstyling easier but also add shine and softness to your hair.
If you have wavy or curly hair, then we suggest you use the TIGI Bed Head On The Rebound Curl Recall Cream on damp hair. This curl-defining cream will not just help reform dropped curls but also retain shine and moisture, thanks to its glycerin content.
Alternatively, you can go in with a styling cream such as the TIGI Bed Head Manipulator Styling. This styling cream will protect your hair from frizz and humidity and at the same time, smoothen flyaways.
The best way to care for dry, damaged locks is to walk to your kitchen, collect a few hydrating ingredients, mix them together and apply it to your hair. Yes, your hair will thank you! Alternatively, you can use the TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Level 3 Resurrection Treatment Mask to repair damaged hair and bring your locks back to life.
Apart from regular oiling, washing and conditioning, your locks need an added dose of nourishment. Just like your skin, your hair too is exposed to environmental aggressors that can damage the texture and worsen the condition of your strands.
Once a week, it is ideal to treat your tresses to the goodness of natural ingredients such as mayonnaise, curd, aloe vera or eggs. A DIY hair mask will revitalize your hair, repair damage and bring it back to life.
You don’t need to assign a special day for a dry scalp massage. The benefits of massaging your scalp every night before hitting the bed will leave you amused.
Scalp massage boosts blood circulation, strengthens the roots, evenly distributes the natural oils, softens hair, reduces stress, promotes sound sleep and nourishes your hair for healthier hair growth.
Therefore, if you haven’t been massaging your scalp regularly, it’s time you include this technique in your hair care routine.
