There’s a false notion that indulging in self-care means opting for elaborate hair-care treatments, procedures, and DIY remedies. But, it’s high time you dismiss that idea. The internet is crowded with fuss-free hacks that revive the shine of your hair and strengthen your tresses right from the roots. Ahead, we’ve put together five fuss-free yet effective hair care tips for healthy hair just for you. Check ‘em out.
- 01. Apply a sealing oil
- 02. Massage wet hair
- 03. Use a clarifying shampoo
- 04. Try out a hair sunscreen
- 05. Always brush your hair from the bottom up
01. Apply a sealing oil
Just like you massage your hair with a dollop of moisturising oils before you shower, there is yet another type of oil that is missing from your routine — a post-shower sealing oil that traps the moisture in your strands and adds lustre to your tresses. Jojoba oil, grapeseed oil, and shea butter are a few options you can choose from.
02. Massage wet hair
Apart from steering clear of blowdryers, try massaging the roots of your damp hair while towel-drying or air-drying them. This is a technique that lends natural volume to your hair. You can conclude with the TRESemme Keratin Smooth Serum to make your hair smooth, shiny and more manageable. Apply a few drops on damp hair from mid-length to tips and watch them turn into the mane of your dreams.
03. Use a clarifying shampoo
Once a week, replace your regular shampoo with a clarifying shampoo like the Love Beauty & Planet Tea Tree Oil & Vetiver Clarifying Shampoo to detoxify your hair and rid it of residue, excess oil and product-build. Infused with Australian tea tree oil that clarifies the greasy scalp and rids it of dandruff flakes too. Plus, the woody scent of vetiver will soothe the senses like nothing else. Did we mention that this vegan shampoo is free of parabens and silicones too? High-key obsessed!
04. Try out a hair sunscreen
We slather sunscreens onto our faces religiously, but we avoid adopting protective measures to maintain the health of our hair. Apart from drying out our strands, UV rays degrade the very protein structure of our hair, resulting in weak, brittle, and porous hair prone to breakage, and split ends. To counter this, you must apply hair sunscreen on your tresses before stepping out.
05. Always brush your hair from the bottom up
When you’re brushing your hair, make sure you’re starting at the ends, and working your way up to the roots. Doing it any other way might lead to breakage. Also, avoid brushing wet hair as it’s fragile and more prone to breakage.
