Hey guys, welcome back to my blog. Today, we are going to talk about HAIR! Your hair is your best accessory, or so I have been told. But maintaining your hair can be such a hassle, am I right? A lifelong question every girl asks is, why does my hair have to look like a bird’s nest when I have an important event. I don’t know about you, but I used to ask myself this all the time. Until I incorporated a good hair care routine into my schedule. Here are a few tips and tricks for frizzy, dry, and unruly hair.
1. OILING YOUR HAIR:
This is a classic step that we were introduced to when we were kids. There was a time that I hated oiling my hair. It made my scalp feel weighed down and I looked like a sleek mess. Until eventually, my hair became frizzy and my scalp became dry, and at that time I decided to start oiling my hair at least once a week.
Oiling your hair has many benefits such as adding the necessary nutrients to your hair, deep nourishing your scalp, and promoting new hair growth. I saw a significant difference in my frizz and my scalp eventually became less dry. I also recently came across a technique of warming your oil and then applying it to your scalp. I did not really see a difference in this method, but it surely did help with my migraine.
2. USING A MOISTURIZING SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER:
For a long time, I suffered from extreme dry patches on my scalp. I used shampoos that claimed to remove them but none worked. Until I finally decided to leave those and just use a plain moisturizing shampoo. I started with the Tresemme Keratin Smooth with Argan Oil Shampoo, this shampoo really helped with my dryness and frizz. A good moisturizing shampoo will also help you with eliminating any product build-up and excess oils.
But, shampooing your hair is not enough. One conditioner that has helped me with my hair is the L’Oreal Professional Hair Spa Smooth Revival Conditioner. This conditioner is a life savior for anyone who has excess frizz. This conditioner leaves my hair feeling softer, smoother, and shinier.
3. EXFOLIATE YOUR SCALP:
One of the things I truly believe in is EXFOLIATING YOUR SCALP. My scalp has never been better after I started implementing this one step in my hair care routine. Exfoliating your scalp has a lot of benefits like removing any excess product buildup, stimulating blood flow to promote hair growth, and also removing any dryness from your scalp.
To exfoliate my scalp, I like using a silicon exfoliating brush. I have an entire section mentioning my favorite in my Amazon finds and must-haves post. You can check it out here https://simswaythroughlife.in/2020/10/18/amazon-finds-and-must-haves/.
4. USING A HAIR MASK TWICE A WEEK:
Using a hair mask has truly been game-changing for me in taking care of my hair. I noticed my hair become more luscious and silky, and less brittle with having a hair mask on twice a week. After my usual shampoo and conditioner, I put on a hair mask and cover it with a hair cap and a towel for the added warmth (makes such a difference).
Before washing off the mask, I like to massage my scalp for around 2 to 3 minutes to help stimulating blood flow and the nutrients of the mask to penetrate my scalp better. One mask that has been a topmost favorite is the L’Oreal Paris Hair Spa Smoothing Creambath. This hair mask is formulated with Water Lily which is a great ingredient for thick and frizzy hair.
5. USE A WOODEN COMB:
A wooden comb to brush your hair out will make it less likely to static and frizz. A wooden comb, unlike a regular comb, prevents the breakage of hair and also prevents greasiness. After using a regular comb, an issue I always had that it made my hair oily and greasy quickly. After researching, I understood that a regular comb distributes your scalp oils throughout your hair and it also stimulates excessive oil production.
One wooden comb I recommend is the Roots Anti-Static Comb. Please note, any anti-static combs are not to be used on wet hair and not to be submerged in water as they lose their ability to work.
That’s it for today guys. These are a few of my recommendations to you if you also have thick, frizzy, and rebellious hair. Leave a comment down below telling me your hair care routine and what products you recommend. Until then, adios, have a nice day, and be safe!
