We all dream of luscious and shiny hair, but maintaining our hair can often feel like a lot of work. If you still don’t have one, designing and following a well-rounded hair care routine can come in handy. Not only will it help your hair, but it is also a relaxing self-care activity. Here at Glam Shades, we have compiled for you a list of tips and hair care products for gorgeous, healthy hair.
The age-old oiling method
When our mothers and grandmothers forced us to oil our hair, it wasn’t for no reason. Oiling not only prevents damage but also improves hair growth. So make time to oil your hair at least once a week. We recommend the Parachute Advansed Coconut Hair Oil for its nourishing and strengthening properties.
Use sulphate free shampoos
Shampoos often contain sulphates, chemicals that can strip your hair of natural oils, making them dry and more prone to frizz. Investing in a shampoo that is free from parabens and sulphates is a great way to keep your hair healthy, especially if you tend to shampoo more often than you need to. We love using WOW Apple Cider Vinegar No Parabens & Sulphate Shampoo, which encourages healthy hair growth and helps hair retain more moisture preventing split ends.
Apply a hair mask regularly
A hair mask deeply nourishes your hair, granting strength to your locks. Think of it as a high-powered hair conditioner with more intense benefits, for softer and shinier looking hair that make it worth the extra time. Apply your hair mask after rinsing out the shampoo which opens up the cuticles. Leave it in for five to fifteen minutes, depending on your hair type. Repeat this process once a week, more often if you have damaged hair. Hair masks can also be used to target specific hair problems like hair fall, dandruff, or split ends. Try the L’Oréal Paris Total Repair 5 Masque to tackle 5 different forms of damage at once.
Seal it off with a conditioner
Don’t forget to apply a hair conditioner each time you wash your hair to seal in the goodness at the cuticles. It works like a charm on reducing the friction between hair for smoother, manageable hair. Spread the conditioner equally on the length of your hair, avoid using it on the scalp as it can prove to be counterproductive. We love the Himalaya Herbal Dryness Defense Hair Detangler And Conditioner. Its detangling formula reduces static and protects your locks from damage while moisturizing your hair strands, without weighing them down.
Foolproof against any weather
Tired of your unruly hair changing with the weather? Hair serum helps you tame your untamable hair, tackling their frizziness while adding shine. It also protects your locks from environmental damage like dust and pollution. Unlike hair oils, serums smoothen your hair without penetrating the hair cuticles or affecting the hair structure. Serums are best suited for the days you wash your hair. Apply a few drops on damp hair, without overdoing it to avoid a greasy look. We recommend using the Livon Serum for Rough & Dry Hair for superb results of your rebellious locks.
We hope these steps -suitable for all hair types- will help you easily craft your ideal hair care routine. Embarking on a hair care journey is a soothing process, and once you find what works for you, you will hardly give it up for anything else.
