Taking care of your body, especially your hair needs special attention. We all want healthy-looking, thick and shiny hair but most of us do not have enough time for a routine because of work. We know how it feels to not have a good hair care routine and that is why we have come up with a few things you can do.
Your lifestyle and diet play a big part in the health of your hair and not just your hair products. So before getting into the hair routine remember to eat healthily and maintain a good lifestyle.
This is the basic thing that everyone should do if they want to have healthy hair. Regardless of your hair type, always massage your scalp and your hair with oil before washing it. The oil can be Olive oil, Coconut oil, Almond oil, or whatever works for you. Adding oil massage to your hair care will help in blood circulation which in turn helps with the hair’s growth.
Apply whatever amount of oil your hair needs and massage it well both on your scalp and your hair. Leave it on either overnight or an hour before showering. This will make your hair much healthier than it already is.
There are tons of hair masks available in the market but if you don’t wanna use the chemicals companies add as preservatives, you can make some easy hair masks at home. Some benefitting hair masks to add to your hair care routine are:
All these hair masks only take about 10 mins to prepare so be sure to find the one that suits you and use it before washing your hair.
Shampooing the hair is something that you’ve been doing, yes. But how to wash the hair with shampoo? That is also a hair care routine. Never wash your shampooed hair with hot water. Always use lukewarm or cold water.
If your hair falls in Oily hair type, you might need to shampoo it more frequently but not too frequently. Shampoo and wash your hair 3 times a week to keep it healthy.
If it is dry hair, you definitely shouldn’t wash your hair more than once a week as it is already dry and you do not need to make it drier. You can try finding out the best SLS-free and Paraben-free shampoo for your hair so that the shampoo is not too hard on your scalp and hair.
If you have a normal scalp or hair, you can wash it with shampoo twice a week or whenever it is necessary for you.
It is always recommended to switch to Sulfate and Paraben-free shampoos because the shampoos containing these harsh chemicals will only do damage to your hair.
Conditioning your hair is just as important as washing your hair with shampoo as it helps in keeping your hair moisturized and shiny. For dry and normal hair, you have to use a conditioner every time you wash your hair. Because if not, the hair will dry out and will eventually become frizzy. For oily hair, you can skip the conditioning part every once in a while as your hair is already moisturized and shiny enough.
Remember that even in choosing the right conditioner for your hair, it is best if it is a natural conditioner with much fewer chemicals. All you need to do is apply the conditioner on the length of your hair and not on the scalps and wash it off after a minute. You already have a good hair care routine if you do these things.
Trimming and Tying your hair:
Last but not least, remember to add trimming your hair every month or every 2 months to your hair care routine. It won’t help you grow your hair but it will keep you healthier and there won’t be a lot of split ends.
How you tie your hair is also part of your hair care routine. Never keep your hair open all day long and remember to braid your hair loosely before going to bed. This will help both in hair falls and to keep it moisturized.
To conclude, taking care of your hair can be easy if you follow routines that don't require too much time. Remember these tips and routine ideas and don’t forget to let us know what your hair care routine is in the comments below!
