Hair care hacks
Since childhood, you may have been hearing about various techniques and solutions to overcome issues related to hair growth. Some of them are authentic and effective, while some others are mere myths and assumptions.
Following are some simple techniques that you can incorporate in your daily hair care routine. Be ready to achieve what you have dreamed about so far.
Do not forget to apply shampoo on your scalp
Applying shampoo is something very important for the effective maintenance of your hair. Your hair needs to get rid of dusty and greasy particles that tend to stick on it. It is the nature of your hair that determines how often you should apply shampoo.
Do not apply shampoo directly to dry hair. Wet your hair before shampooing it.
Let it flow naturally downwards to the tip of your hair while washing it off.
Apply conditioner after shampoo every time
Applying conditioner after every shampoo wash is a strict thing to follow. Skipping it might leave your hair dry and unruly.
Avoid applying conditioner on the scalp
Seriously it is not going to destroy your hair. However, due to the extra moisturizing effect, it could make the roots of your hair somewhat stiff and sticky.
Choose shampoo and conditioner appropriately
This is not as easy as purchasing other cosmetics. You need to be aware about the nature of your scalp as well as your hair. If you are doubtful, you can consult a dermatologist.
Avoid changing hair care products often
Our body needs time to get used to a new product. If you are changing it very often, it will never get enough time to show the results. So, give enough time for your hair to get used to the product and examine the effects the product has on your hair.
Take extra care while swimming
We all know that swimming pools are chlorinated, and daily exposure to it would cause terrible damage to your hair. It might leave your hair dry for the whole day after swimming. Occasional exposure with necessary precautions doesn’t cause serious damage.
- Use a quality cap while swimming
- Wash your hair with clean water after swimming
Avoid rubbing your hair with towel
Do not dry your hair by rubbing it harshly with a towel. You can wrap it instead and leave it for natural air dry.
Stop combing wet hair
Make sure that there is no water on your hair before you comb it. It helps you to prevent hair damage to a certain extent.
Taking care of your hair is something that could test your patience. We cannot expect a fast recovery and there is no space for disappointment. Be cool and try to observe small changes that you may consider insignificant. Slowly and gradually you would see changes in the texture and appearance of your hair.
