Having spent a year and a half mostly indoors now, we're not going to lie — our tresses have definitely suffered some serious damage. And no matter how on-fleek our makeup and outfits may be this festive season, if our hair regimen isn't on point, well, it's all going to be for nothing. That’s why we’ve gone ahead and put together a low maintenance guide that even a lazy gal can follow this festive season to retain flawless locks. Read on, and don't forget to take notes, ladies!
- 1. Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse
- 2. Condition regularly
- 3. Mask up
- 4. Switch out your hairbrush
- 5. Avoid heat
1. Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse
We're sure you know all about shampooing, but if you want to correctly cleanse your hair to get rid of all the dirt and grime it may have accumulated, you need to opt for a baddie-free shampoo to do the job. Opt for the silicone and paraben-free Love Beauty & Planet Tea Tree Oil & Vetiver Clarifying Shampoo to clarify your greasy scalp. It contains the goodness of tea tree oil for that much-needed detox, vetiver for a refreshing scent, and a healthy dose of coconut oil for added moisturisation too!
2. Condition regularly
Regular conditioning is often overlooked, but our sources tell us that you need to condition before your wash, and if your mane is lacking moisture, you need to condition even when you're not shampooing your hair too. To make your locks look healthy and nourished no matter what the occasion is, opt for the Dove Daily Shine Conditioner. It's enriched with a nutritive serum that will lend a gorgeous sheen to your tresses and get rid of frizz too.
3. Mask up
Whether you've got a big event lined up ahead in the day, or you just want to do some pre-event prep for the flurry of occasions that lie ahead, you can never go wrong with using a hair mask. Pamper your locks with the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Deep Smoothing Mask. Formulated with the goodness of marula oil and keratin that deeply nourishes the hair while making it frizz-free, smooth, and shiny, this one's a festive season must-have through and through.
4. Switch out your hairbrush
If you're still using a generic brush that's made of nylon or plastic, you could actually be damaging your hair more than you think. These generic brushes are the biggest culprits for causing hair fall and greasiness since they are harsh on the cuticles and don't distribute the natural oils on your scalp. Switch to a wooden brush for a quick, easy way to step up your mane this festive season.
5. Avoid heat
We know this is a tall order, especially for the festive season where all you want are sleek, straight hair or voluminous curls — but whenever you can, avoid heat-styling your hair as much as possible. If your heart is set on iron-straightening your hair, though, keep the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protection Spray since it'll shield your tresses from heat damage upto 450 degrees Fahrenheit while making them look smooth, shiny, and frizz-free.
