11 Hair Care Tips For An Amazing Mane!!
No you’re not imagining things, yes your hair is acting up, and no it’s not your fault. Your hair reacts to changes in weather just like your skin and you have to be quite aware to catch the changes at the onset to avoid the consequences. Dry weather, dusty weather, windy days, or humid days, they all wreak havoc with our crowning glory so what’s a girl to do? Read below for CIIN’s hair care tips, you can thank us later:)
1 || Cover Up
This may seem like an obvious one but whenever you get the chance to protect your hair from the elements, do it. You can use a hat, a bandana, sit in the shade or use an umbrella in the rain, whatever works for you.
2 || Be Gentle With Wet Hair
This is when hair is the weakest and most susceptible to breakage, therefore be gentle when you shampoo, brush or dry wet hair. When you dry the hair, pat and don’t rub to avoid losing hair to breakage and fall out.
3 || Condition The Hair and Not The Scalp
Conditioners are meant for the hair and not the scalp thus always make sure to start the conditioner 2 inches away from the scalp. You probably know that conditioning the scalp will make it excessively oily.
4 || Treat The Scalp
Treat the scalp with regular oil treatments or by investing in specialised serums that provide the scalp with the needed moisture, proteins, vitamins and minerals.
5 || Use Heat Protectants
This is probably another obvious pointer but well worth the reminder. Try NOT to use heat on your hair as it will eventually make the hair dry and frizzy and when you do make sure to use a heat protectant.
6 || Satin Pillow Covers
Sleeping on satin pillow is not only good for your face, it is extremely good for your hair as well because satin pillow cases will reduce hair breakage that is caused by friction.
7 || Vitamins
When purchasing hair vitamins there are a multitude of tempting products on the market. Look for ingredients such as biotin, zinc, vitamins C, D3, and A, among other patented ingredients that could be specific to the certain type of vitamin you choose.
8 || Scalp Massage
Aim to massage your scalp regularly to stimulate blood flow which in turn revives the hair and prevents hair loss and is also a very relaxing experience.
9 || Use Sulfate-Free Caffeine Shampoos
Sulfates give shampoos their thick lather but they dry out hair and cause frizziness. Caffeine has also been known to stimulate hair growth and and prevent hair loss.
10 || Use Clarifying Shampoos Once A Month
Aim to use a clarifying shampoo once a month for a deep cleansing experience that removes product buildup. Using a clarifying shampoo regularly will increase the efficiency of your favourite haircare products.
11 || Hair Masks
You cannot go wrong with regular hair masks.
