Hair Care Routine
What's your daily hair care routine? We all have different ways that we like to get ready and start our day. Some of us shower at night, others in the morning. We may choose to use conditioner, or special serums when blow drying our hair. Below, a few things you might already know about taking care of your locks, and some things you might be surprised to find out.
- Depending on how oily your hair is, you may need to wash it every day. Some men or women find that washing it so often dries it out. If you aren't sure what to do, take a day off from washing your hair (it may sound gross, but really it's okay!) and see how your hair feels after a few hours.
- When washing your hair, you really only need to use a teaspoon's worth of shampoo. Then, massage it in small, circular motions on the scalp as this will help to encourage growth and produce shiny hair.
- When rinsing, make sure shampoo is completely out of your hair - you don't want lingering residue when you get out of the shower!
- Conditioners can vary, as most need to be left in hair for a few minutes, and some leave in conditioners need to stay on all day. Either way, using conditioner is a good protectant after shampooing.
- Obviously air drying is the best thing for your hair, but most women choose to style it. When doing so, waiting until hair is at least 3/4 dry before blow drying is the best way to keep it looking good without causing a lot of damage.
- When getting out tangles, start at the ends of the hair and work your way up towards the scalp.
- Your diet can affect your hair's texture. A healthy diet with less greasy or oily foods will produce healthy hair.
- Running your hands through your hair can make it greasy and oily faster.
- Putting your hair back in a ponytail at night will avoid breakage and tangles while you sleep.
Before you figure out which beauty products to use, it's good to determine your hair type. Check out the overview of hair types below.
- Dry Hair : Chemically treating hair often or overexposing it to sun can cause dry hair. If it's feeling brittle and lacks lustre, try a moisturising shampoo to restore the damage sustained.
- Normal Hair : This type of hair needs to be washed every or every other day, and can hold style well. Hair that hasn't been permed or colour treated often will tend to be normal.
- Oily Hair : This type of hair is usually limp and needs to be washed every day. It's hard to style oily hair as it tends to lack volume. Using a good cleansing shampoo will help improve hair's condition and dry it out at the tips.
