The secret to achieving and maintaining healthy hair is simple: good hair starts in the shower. Following a good core hair care routine can go a long way to keeping your hair in tip top condition.
From washing your hair daily to taking extra care of your scalp, your hair care habits can make all the difference to your hair health. Follow these 5 simple tips and you’ll be on your way to shinier, healthier hair.
Use a hydrating shampoo
How frequently you wash your hair depends on your hair type. For those with an oily scalp, it’s best to wash your hair daily. For those with dry or chemically treated hair, you could get away with washing your hair less often.
Using the right shampoo can make a huge difference. Start by using a good, hydrating shampoo like our Haul of Fame Living Proof’s Perfect hair Day™ Shampoo. This shampoo gently cleanses your hair and adds instant hydration plus shine. It leaves your hair three times stronger after just one wash and helps you achieve healthier-looking hair with consistent use.
Don’t skip using a conditioner
After finding the right shampoo, the next step is to always follow with a conditioner post-shampoo, especially if you have dry, brittle or damaged hair. A conditioner helps seal in moisture, improves manageability and provides shine and smoothness to your tresses.
Even if you’re in a hurry, don’t ever skip using a conditioner. Trust us, your hair will thank you.
Incorporate a nourishing hair mask
Another habit worth following is to use a hair mask every week, especially if you have dry or damaged hair. Hair masks are usually packed with nourishing ingredients and oils to help boost your hair’s moisture levels. Incorporating a hair mask into your weekly hair care routine can also help repair damage, strengthen your hair and leave it looking shinier, fuller and smoother.
Take care of your scalp
When it comes to healthier hair, don’t forget to take care of your scalp. Doing a regular scalp massage boosts blood circulation, promotes new and healthy hair growth, and strengthens your hair. Plus, giving yourself a scalp massage also boasts de-stressing benefits.
Avoid excessive use of heat styling tools
Last and most importantly, try to avoid excessive use of heat styling tools when styling your hair. Heat styling can contribute to hair damage. If needed, always make sure to use a heat protectant to protect your hair from becoming dry, dull and damaged.
