HAIR CARE TIPS AT HOME #1: CONCENTRATE SHAMPOO ON THE SCALP
HAIR CARE TIP #2: USE CONDITIONER CORRECTLY
After shampoo, you know you should use conditioner, but are you sure you’re using it the right way?
Think about where your hair tends to get greasy first—typically the roots—meaning it only needs to be placed on certain sections of your hair.
So skip applying conditioner near your roots, and apply it from mid-lengths to ends.
HAIR CARE TIPS AT HOME #3: RINSE OFF THOROUGHLY
Alright, so you’re almost ready to get out of the shower but be sure to completely rinse out shampoo and conditioner.
HAIR CARE TIP #4: STOP USING A TOWEL WHEN DRYING OFF
It’s totally common to use a towel to remove excess water and start drying your hair post-shower, but it may not be what’s best.
The better option? Squeeze out excess water and then dry off using an old cotton T-shirt.
Yup. Not only it is gentler than a towel, but also cheaper.
HAIR CARE TIPS AT HOME #5: PROTECT HAIR BEFORE HEAT STYLING
Blowout or heat styling sessions can definitely make our hair look great, but excessive heat styling can do some negative effects.
We’re not saying you bid goodbye to your hot tools completely but there’s one little adjustment you must do when using heat to style.
Spritz on a heat protectant to shield your hair from heat without weighing it down. Do this every single time before blow-drying, straightening, or curling your hair.
HAIR CARE TIP #6: CHOOSE YOUR TEMP
For those on the quest for a deep clean, keep your water warm; the heat opens the cuticle, improving the penetration of the shampoo.
Turn the water to cool to close the cuticle if your desired effect is a frizz-free, sleek style.
Note: Avoid scalding temps at all costs; hot water dries out skin and hair.
HAIR CARE TIP #7: ONLY STRAIGHTEN AND CURL DRY HAIR
Imagine what happens when you drop water into a hot pan, then consider if you want the same to happen to your hair. We think not!
That’s the reason why you shouldn’t use a hair straightener or curling iron when your hair is wet or even just a little damp.
HAIR CARE TIP #8: SWITCH UP YOUR PART
I love this tip! So simple yet powerful! Want to give your hair an instant lift? Simply switch your part to the opposite side and you’ll notice your hair have a fuller look!
HAIR CARE TIP #9: BLOW-DRY WITH A BRUSH
Blow-drying your hair can be a difficult skill to master, but adding a rounded hairbrush makes it easier.
Brushing your hair in the same direction as you’re blow-drying is the way to go. Also, use the brush to straighten and smoothen your hair.
While you’re doing it, remember to move your blow-dryer from roots to ends (not the other way around) to help prevent frizz.
HAIR CARE TIPS AT HOME #10: SAY GOODBYE TO TIGHT PONYTAIL
I have long hair and I can honestly say I couldn’t live without my ponytails! I mean, it’s a huuuge convenience for me to be able to sweep all of my hair off my face.
Raise your hand if you agree 🙂
But still, pulling your hair up all the time while using a tight ponytail can put too much strain on your tresses
So try to let your hair down more often. Using looser ponytails and softer hair ties won’t hurt.
