HOW TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY HAIR IN 5 SIMPLE STEPS

HOW TO MAINTAIN HEALTHY HAIR IN 5 SIMPLE STEPS

Let’s be real for a moment.

Most of us have had to deal with our hair being all over the place & looking not all that cute.

For me bad hair days were ALL of my days for about 3 years, I had crazy frizzy hair that took a lot of effort to tame.

Achieving smooth and straight hair without heat took a lot of experimenting with different hair products and changing my hair care routine often.

Take a look at what I changed in my hair care routine. And who knows, maybe it’ll help you too? Enjoy!


Comb wet hair

First up we have combing your wet hair.

You should always comb wet hair with extreme care as it is fragile and prone to breakage. Take a broad toothed comb and run it from the roots to the ends of your hair as gently as possible.

Properly combing your wet hair will keep it healthy, shiny and smooth.

Wet hair is swollen and stretched by as much as 20-30%, so roughly brushing your hair when wet can snap it like a rubber band.

To avoid unnecessary breakage, use a wide-toothed comb and run it through your wet hair, rather than a brush.

TIP: To remove tangles after washing your hair work with the tangles out starting from the ends.

This avoids frizziness as your hair dries.


Get your hair trimmed regularly

We all know to do this but who actually follows it?

Trim your hair every few months to get rid of those split ends to make your hair look and feel healthier. 

Cut about half an inch of your hair every 6/8 weeks to avoid the split ends to grow out again.

FACT: Getting rid of the ends of your hair doesn’t directly affect your hair growth. Trimming will simply keep your hair more healthy as it grows.


Avoid washing your hair every day

Washing your hair every day will suck all the natural oils from your hair. Try to wash your hair at least every 2 days and use dry shampoo the days you don’t wash it. If you don’t have oily hair try to go longer than 2 days.

I wash my hair 2-3 times a week the most & you should too! Working out daily or finding yourself sweating often can lead to a buildup of excess oil on your scalp, which can cause skin problems. So if you sweat every day, it’s probably a good idea to give your hair a good daily wash to keep your scalp healthy.

Using conditioner

Always make sure to condition the ends then move your way up. Rinse the conditioner off with cold water as it is good for both strength and shine. Purchase a conditioner with oils, oils will smoothen and hydrate your hair. Look for conditioners that contain glycerin and shea butter.

Hair Masks

This is a new obsession of mine. Using a hair mask every now and then really can make all the difference.

There is a range of hair masks you can get to suit your hair, whether it be for greasy hair or for frizzy hair.

Ideally, you can use hair masks every time you wash your hair, but once a week is okay.

Aim to purchase a hair mask that is hydrating and contains glycerin, silk proteins or keratin.

You can even make your own hair masks using natural ingredients.
