Blow-dryers, curling irons, and straighteners are our go-to styling products during any occasion or event or holiday! We all style our hair by blasting, frying and tugging it with all those heating products. And after continuously using those products, it becomes obvious that our hair will become lackluster! Isn’t it? Didn’t we all experience the result of styling? And after we notice the bad effects on our hair, we start to look for ways to make our hair look healthy like before! We become desperate to bring the shine back to our hair. Right?
We all must make some time for our locks, because, our locks deserve some love as well. You must maintain a repair routine after continuously styling during any event or holiday. So, below are 15 tips, by which you can easily bring the life back to your hair:
1. Rinse your hair with super cold water
Well, it might be a bit unpleasant. But rinsing your hair with super cold water at the end of every shower will make your hair shiny. It will also lock the cuticles and prevent frizz and extra hair fall.
2. Switch your shampoo
Please do it! Change your regular shampoo to a strengthening and repairing shampoo. Wash your scalp with it, do not use it on the hair, as the hair might get rough and coarse. You can use clarifying shampoo once in a week to clean the build-ups.
3. Deep condition your hair regularly
After all the heat damage on your hair, a regular deep conditioning will help your hair repair faster from the roots. Make your own routine and continue deep conditioning as a habit.
4. Micro-fiber towels should be your friend
Avoid terry cloth towels. These towels create friction in your hair that cause hair breakage. Micro-fiber towels are super absorbent and will dry your hair without damaging. By the way, do not rub your hair, pat dry it.
5. Gloss treatments at home
The tinted hair-gloss is a much cheaper, easier and reliable way to dye hair at home, without cashing out loads of money at the hair parlor. It’s actually good for your hair. Gloss the repairs and dye the damages at home!
6. Occasional breaks from the hair-dryer
Give your hair a break and let your hair breathe natural air, instead of machine heated air. I promise you that you will not regret! Heat from hair-dryers somewhat damages the hair. So, just a give a break. What I mean is, avoid excessive use of the dryer. Use it sometimes!
7. Wide-tooth combs after a bath
After a shower, the hair roots and cuticles are naturally prone to damage. They remain soft. So, if you use your regular brush, your hair might break or you might have hair fall. So, use a wide-toothed comb just to detangle your hair softly. And let it dry.
8. Join the argan oil hype
Why? Because it’s worth it! Girl, if you are not an argan oil fan, still hop in for argan oil. It works like magic. It will make your hair soft, silky and smooth. You’ll enjoy the ride and will thank me as well for the tip.
9. Make heat-protectants your go-to product
If you cannot stay away from styling products like hair dryers and straighteners, then please use a heat-protectant every time! It will make a huge difference to your hair.
10. Do not ignore the cold shot button
If you are a regular user of hair dryer like me, then you must have seen the extra button on your hair dryer that enables cold air. It’s there for a reason. Use it! After styling your hair with all the heat, use the cold air of the hair-dryer to seal your style and shine. It not only locks your hairstyle but also reduces the damage it had made with the hot air.
11. Opt for a humidifier
Why? Because, the heating system during the winter season, might dry out your skin and also your hair. Using a humidifier will prevent the excessive drying.
12. Use nylon or boar bristle comb brush or both
Boar bristle brushes conditions your hair and improves the texture of the hair as well. If you have thick hair, use both nylon and boar bristle brush. If you have fine or thin hair, only boar bristle brush will suffice. And please remember not to over-brush.
13. Channel your inner princess and sleep on a silk pillow-case
Silk pillowcases are good in a sense that it reduces friction and as a result, your hair will not have frizzes, as opposed to when you sleep on cotton pillowcases. You will wake up with soft and shiny hair.
14. Trim your hair regularly
As your hair grows longer, it becomes prone to split ends. And the only way to get rid of it is to trim the hair regularly. So, trim your hair every three months and give your hair a new and healthy look.
15. Strengthen the roots by taking vitamins
Healthy hair starts from the inside. Intake omega 2 fatty acids, fish oil capsules, biotins, vitamin B and D through capsules or regular food. You will notice the difference in your hair.
So, these are the tips to make your hair look healthier. Follow these and do not forget to share these with your friends. Thank you!
