So I have a lot of people asking me about my hair care regime and here I’m talking about it. First of all I wanted to state that it’s no magic or any particular hair product doing the right thing for me but yes its couple of small things i really take care of in order to maintain them well. Spending too much in expensive products doesn’t really gives a desired result always.
I have always been fond of long hairs as it’s the best accessory to have, for creating so many looks and has worked best in making me look so much better. Like all other girls I’m also fond of experimenting with my appearance and my last makeover session involved global hair coloring and keratin treatment. These reinvention has worked pretty well on me except longing for some extra care going ahead.
I totally back this old saying, “Hair is the crown you never take off”. Whether you have naturally perfect hair or not, the most important thing is taking care of your hair so that they stay healthy in their own textures. My hair care regime is the simplest as I don’t do much of the parlor/home remedy or anything extra to manage my hair but just follow the easy steps illustrated below.
- Hair cleanliness is utmost important, I prefer to wash my hair thrice since my scalp is little oily. A good shampoo and conditioners is nothing in particular but whatever is best suitable to your hair types. For me, I prioritize sulphate free shampoos to avoid chemicals on regular basis. also do not over wash your hair i.e daily as it takes away the natural nutrition and strength of the hair.
- Conditioning hair well after every wash is must, don’t skip it! Fearing that hair becomes too flat with conditioning is a useless myth, what a moisturizer does to the skin the same role play conditioner does to the hair. For me conditioning does a great job on my long strands, I generally use hair mask instead of normal conditioners. I also make it a point to deep condition my hair once a week with loreal spa as I don’t really go for monthly hair spa’s.
- Oil massages nourish the hair follicles where growth begins, it increases blood circulation that strengthen hair and hydrates the strands. Though I use nourishing oil just once a month but it is advised to be used before every-wash.
- I always air dry my hair instead of blow-dry as artificial drying makes my hair very rough and leads to breakage. I make it a point to also keep away from electronic hair tools like straightener or rolling rods until very necessary and use heat protector if I’m using them as it saves tresses from damage.
- After cleansing use an absorbent hair towel instead of wrapping it up with regular body towel. Our hair are vulnerable to breakage when they are wet and the regular body towel has cotton loops which is little rough and causes damage and friction in hair. The absorbent towel caps are designed for wet hair hence they are soft and gentle on scalp and hair. Trust me, people fighting with excessive hair fall should try this as I have personally felt it minimises the breakage a lot.
- Do not comb the wet dry hair, let them gently dry and afterwards free the tangles using a wide tooth comb. After detangling, comb the hair from inward to outward as that adds volume to hair; for me this technique works very well making my long lock look fluffy and fresh for quite longer.
- Do not pull hair back tightly all day long or at night while sleeping because stretching hair for too long weakens the roots. Also use silk scrunchies to tie them up as it minimizes friction in hair.
- Maintain a healthy diet and if you are suffering from hair fall then that could be due to vitamin deficiency that causes hair loss, In that phase of hair fall put yourself on Multivitamins that are specified for hair growth for a month.
- Trim your hair often, I trim my locks once in two months to remove split and dead ends which help the hair stay more aligned and look healthier.
Hope this article helps out to all the ladies who were looking forward to it. Maintaining your hair and making sure it looks perfect isn’t that difficult task anymore, you just need to know the right things to do and practice them with dedication.
