The right gestures to take care of your hair on a daily basis
Hair maintenance is often forgotten until it starts to get damaged. You can adopt simple daily actions to have beautiful hair. If you do not yet know what are the good habits and reflexes to adopt to take care of your hair , here are some tips to follow and a guide for choosing the products to use.
Do not use products that weaken your hair
Know that throughout the year, various factors attack your hair such as pollution, drug treatments, odors or an unbalanced diet. And especially, something that some women are unaware of, the use of certain shampoos and hair products that are harmful to the hair. It should be noted that most hair care products are made from silicone, a liquid substance used to coat the hair, smooth it and make it shine. But, after long usage, the silicone in the products ends up smothering the hair causing hair fall or hair loss. Therefore, favor organic and natural products. Also, if you can, buy complete products rather than treatments from different brands to obtain a better result. Ask your hairdresser for advice. You can also find brand name and high quality products at a hair salon.
Choose your shampoo according to the condition of the hair
If your hair does not present any specific problem, it is said to be “normal”. A simple organic shampoo will suffice to preserve their balance.
If your hair is brittle, dry and damaged, choose a nourishing and moisturizing shampoo based on vegetable oils such as avocado, baobab, shea butter, ylang-ylang, coconut, or clay.
If you have oily hair, a purifying organic shampoo made with coconut vegetable oil and tulsi powder, as it will help give the perfect balance and soothe your scalp.
On the other hand, if your hair is dull and difficult to comb and detangle, it is said to be “sensitive”. It is therefore advisable to use a moisturizing and nourishing shampoo with honey in order to nourish them in depth.
If you have combination hair, which is oily at the roots and dry at the ends, a shampoo for oily hair at the roots will suit you. Also use a conditioner to moisturize dry ends.
Choose your shampoo according to the nature of the hair
If you notice dandruff in your hair, it is obvious that you must use a natural anti-dandruff shampoo that will protect your hair against this phenomenon.
If your hair is frizzy or curly, opt for a moisturizing shampoo, which helps keep your volume and form beautiful curls. If you want smoother hair every day, choose a smoothing shampoo.
If you have colored or only a few highlights, use a specific shampoo for colored hair to maintain the color.
Adopt a care habit adapted to the nature of your hair
We advise you to use treating shampoos adapted to the nature of your hair, such as anti-hair loss, anti-external aggressions, or even anti-dandruff. Nevertheless, you will have to alternate your treating shampoo with a mild shampoo. The hair lives and must be rehydrated after washing. Therefore, after using a shampoo, it is necessary to take special care of the hair. Thus, it is necessary to resort to a restorative mask on the ends and the lengths. The best thing is to follow a cure lasting three months: Take anti-hair loss ampoules, or capsules with trace elements for the treatment of your hair, to prevent possible hair loss, whether it is still in good health, and to boost hair tone. However, it is wise to seek the opinion and advice of your hairdresser or an expert in this field to avoid unpleasant surprises. If you are used to using a hair dryer, the leave-in serum is ideal to protect your hair from the heat.
Wash hair with lukewarm water
Most people abuse their hair because they don’t know the right things to do to maintain it. For example, to wash your hair and to boost its quality, you must use lukewarm water, and not too hot. Washing in cold water is ideal. You should know that hot water does not wash the hair properly and deprives it of its natural grease, which will damage it over time.
Stimulate and massage the scalp
We encourage you to perform scalp massages, provided that they are done after the installation of an anti-hair loss ampoule. This will allow you not to attack your scalp, and not to stimulate the sebaceous glands too much. Thus, your hair can relax and their growth will be stimulated. Massage for a few minutes on average once a week.
Rinse hair well
While rinsing your hair, make sure that there is no more shampoo. If there’s still shampoo left on your hair, you’ll feel greasy while drying. Your hair looks sticky and dirty, yet you just washed it. Thus, to rinse your hair well, sometimes raise your head to wash the roots. Spend two minutes rinsing until you notice that the water draining from your hair becomes clear and there is no more suds.
Dry the hair well
To dry your hair, it is not enough to simply hold a hair dryer around your head. To have dry and manageable hair, you must wring it out with a towel. And it’s after that you can use your hair dryer. Dry them all the same in the direction of the hair fiber, that is to say from the roots to the tips. Then, apply a little paraben-free and silicone-free serum to your hair to strengthen it and protect it against external aggressions. This product can be used on damp or wet hair, but also on dry hair.
Have a healthy lifestyle
It is important not to wash your hair every day, because you risk sensitizing the fiber and increasing excess sebum. Hairdressers recommend washing your hair twice a week at most. It is also recommended to refrain from consuming tobacco and smoking, as these are also factors that damage the hair, which turn it yellow, and which dull the color. In addition, it is possible to use nutritional supplements such as magnesium, iron, calcium and mineral salts to nourish your hair from the inside, and to optimize the effect of the masks.
