You probably feel a tinge of envy – and perhaps even a bit of resentment – each time a particular neighbour with the most gorgeous hair walks by and waves at you. She seems to have all the time in the world to take better care of her hair while you barely have time to prepare your lunch before leaving for work.
No matter how busy you may be, however, you might be able to squeeze in some of these routines that may help improve your hair.
Don’t wash your hair too often
Two to three times a week is a good rule of thumb when it comes to frequency of shampooing your hair. Your scalp releases natural oils to protect your hair. Each time you shampoo, those oils are stripped along with the dirt you are trying to get rid of. Don’t shampoo your hair too often.
Use good products
Before buying a product, do some research. Many online resources can tell you whether a product is good or harmful to your hair and scalp. And don’t scrimp on shampoo and other haircare products. Cheap shampoo may end up damaging your hair. Use products known for quality. They may be a bit on the pricey side, but that’s the price you have to pay for great hair.
If hair loss or thinning hair is your problem, you may need more than good quality shampoo. You may want to see your doctor about it. You can also visit a hair clinic like Fue Clinics in Glasgow popular for hair restoration treatment and follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transfer.
Wash your hair with cool water
A hot shower feels great after a long day, but hot water is bad for your hair. Use cool water to wash it. Hot water will end up drying out your hair and causing tangles and breakage.
Apply conditioner to damp hair
Instead of applying conditioner to wet hair, use a towel to dry your hair until it’s only damp, then apply the conditioner. Excess water prevents the conditioner from penetrating the shafts of hair. If you’re in a rush, at least squeeze excess water gently out of your hair before conditioning.
You don’t always have to watch your neighbour in envy as she walks by with her salon-worthy tresses. These are simple enough methods to make your hair look better.
