5 Hair Care Secrets You Need To Know Today
Your hair is your crowning glory! And the hair thickness, length and shine are a reflection of your scalp health, and how you treat your mane. It doesn’t matter if you have curly hair, thin hair, oily hair, dry hair, or any other type of hair – certain hair care tips are universal. While you may want to tailor your hair care routine, you should also have some hair care secrets up your sleeves to boost your hair health. So, let’s dive into some hair care secrets that you can use to flaunt gorgeous tresses.
Don’t skip oiling
Pre-shampoo treatments such as oiling and massaging are often skipped to save time. However, including oiling in your hair care routine can make a huge difference and help you achieve frizz-free hair. Oiling improves blood circulation on the scalp, relaxes your muscles, boosts shine and nourishes the hair. It also restores moisture content, enables hair growth and repairs split ends.
Washing your hair regularly ensures that your scalp and hair is free of dirt and debris. However, the right frequency depends on your hair type and needs. If you have extremely dry hair, limit your washing to twice a week. If you have an oily scalp, washing your hair on alternate days can help. And remember, not all shampoos are your buddies. Some shampoos can greatly affect your hair’s texture, negatively. This is due to the ingredients such as sulphates and other powerful cleansing agents present in it. You need to pick a shampoo that is formulated to help protect and amplify your hair. To shower your hair with the best, go for a sulphate-free shampoo. Try one from the Garnier Fructis Hair Food range that is formulated with umpteen benefits of fruits and includes a variety of hair cleansing products, depending on your wants - from anti-frizz shampoo to shampoo without sulphate. When washing your hair, concentrate on cleaning primarily the scalp, rather than washing the entire length of hair. Washing your hair can create flyaways that are dull and coarse. Moreover, avoid hot showers as hot water can strip your hair of essential oils, which can leave it feeling drier and looking duller.
Conditioning is a must
Using a conditioner every time you wash your hair is a must. This can significantly improve the look of damaged or dry hair by increasing shine, improving strength and offering protection. And yes, chances are you already know that you should use a conditioner, but are you using it the right way? Think about where your strands tend to get greasy first—typically the roots—and use it as a reminder that a conditioner needs to be applied only on certain sections of your hair. Concentrate the conditioner on the tips of your hair. Since conditioners can make fine hair look limp, avoid applying it on the scalp or lengths of your hair. Instead, use it on the tips of the hair. Use a wide-toothed comb to evenly distribute the conditioner through your hair and detangle your tresses. Also, make sure to rinse it off thoroughly.
Use a hair mask
Regardless of the hair type, texture, and tint, anyone and everyone can benefit from deep conditioning, i.e., using a hair mask. A hair mask helps control frizz and maintain the moisture of your hair throughout. To nourish and condition damaged hair, try the Garnier Fructis Hair Food Papaya Mask. The vitamins in papaya fruit benefit the hair by maintaining sebum production, which nourishes, strengthens, and protects your hair. We recommend using the hair mask 2-3 times a week and leave it on for at least 20 to 30 minutes for your hair to soak in all the papaya benefits.
Dry your hair naturally and gently by pressing out excess water without rubbing. Use a cotton t-shirt or a microfibre towel, instead of a regular towel. This will protect your hair from damage and reduce knots. Do not miss using an anti-frizz serum while drying your hair. It is best to apply serum to damp hair before the rest of your styling products to lock in the benefits. Once that is done, style and slay!
