Sometimes, hair care is part of a self-care routine that is forgotten. This is an even more common case nowadays as we are going back to normal life and may be forgetting about our personal care, unlike when we were in lockdown.
Here are a few ways to revamp your haircare routine:
Use a purifying shampoo every now and then
A purifying shampoo helps to remove buildup on the hair and scalp, helping your hair get a nice reset. You can use products such as the Blue Lagoon purifying shampoo for example: this will be gentle but effective in soothing and balancing while not stripping your scalp. If your hair is colored, however, this is something to be extra careful with and ask your hairdresser about.
Air Dry your hair once a week
We all know that heat damage is real, and your hair needs a break from it as often as you’re willing to give it one! One way to incorporate this practice is to dedicate one wash day a week to air drying. If you’re willing to give it more than that, you’ll see incredible results as your hair rediscovers its balance and will start looking better and better the more you air dry it.
Use hair masks and deep conditioning at least once a week
Treatments can really transform your hair, so it’s well worth it to take the time to incorporate them into your hair care routine. Select hair masks according to your specific hair’s needs and even tailor which one to use according to your hair’s needs the day that you want to use one for the best results. Deep conditioning treatments that focus on nourishing your hair are great to incorporate and alternate as needed, as well.
Try Keratin treatments
Keratin treatments help to improve the appearance of hair, reduce frizz and boost shine. These types of treatments can last for a couple of months, and you can extend its effectiveness if you are not washing and styling your hair as often. It is a popular treatment for those who want to have smoother hair.
Get new brushes to help detangle your hair but won’t break them
If not done correctly, brushing your hair can be incredibly damaging. First things first, you want to start out with a wide tooth comb or dedicated detangling brush to be as gentle as possible. You can prep your hair with a detangler or leave-in conditioner that will help the brushing process, and you always want to start from the bottom and work your way up. That way you get any tangles at the bottom out and don’t tug too hard at your hair.
During your late teens and early 30’s, hair care is an essential part of growing up so that you start out with great hair habits and you set it up to be as healthy as possible. If you want long, healthy locks, it’s important to revamp your hair routine and continue to do so as your hair needs change.
