Sunday: Dry detangle/ Prepoo
Before going to bed at night, prepare your hair for a wash the next day. Depending on your hair type and condition, use a light oil to detangle your hair in order to prevent breakage. Start from the ends and work your way towards the roots. Use your fingers or a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair so your hair is tangle free during the wash, next morning.
Monday: Shampoo and condition
Start your week with a shampoo and conditioning session. Choose a shampoo based on the needs of your scalp. If it is dry and flaky, try the Pure Derm Mint Cool Shampoo. If it requires a deep cleanse, opt for the Tresemme Botanique Detox & Restore Shampoo With Ginseng And Neem. For brittle hair choose a strengthening or protein shampoo such as the Dove Healthy Ritual For Strengthening Hair Shampoo and follow it up with conditioner from the same range for best results.
If you’ve been itching to style your hair a particular way, do so today. Your hair follicles are fragile the day it’s washed and using a lot of styling products and tools on the same day can cause damage and breakage. If your hair texture is slightly on the drier side, simply take a few drops of the Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Hair Oil - Rose & Almond Oil and apply to the ends to add a healthy shine.
Wednesday: Hot oil massage
No matter what your hair type, a weekly hot oil massage is essential to give your roots the nourishment they deserve. Warm some coconut oil in a bowl and add a few drops of essential oil to this, depending on your preference you can choose tea tree, lavender or peppermint. Using your fingertips, gently massage it on your scalp.
Thursday: Shampoo and condition
Hey, it’s time to wash your hair again. Massage the shampoo on your scalp using your fingertips in gentle motions to get rid of all the oil from the previous night. Follow it up with a condition, remember you only have to apply conditioner from the mid-lengths to the tips and not the roots.
Its Friday, you obviously have plans to go out with bae or your girl gang. So, go ahead and style your hair the way you wish to.
Saturday: Deep condition
Deep conditioning your hair once a week is important to maintain healthy and lustrous mane. You can do this by whipping a hair mask at home using ingredients like egg yolk, olive oil, yoghurt, etc. from your pantry for the deep conditioning session.
