how to achieve healthy hair

Our hair drastically affects our overall appearance. While some are blessed with natural silky hair, some of us have to take extra care/steps to maintain healthy looking hair. Sticking to a hair care routine is essential to having healthy hair.

New to a hair care regimen?

Fret not, we got you covered!

A hair care routine should consist of the following:
• Shampoo
• Conditioner
• Deep conditioner
• Protein treatment
• Styling aids (Heat Protectant/Essential Oil)

 

1.   Get a good quality shampoo!

use quality shampoo

Get a shampoo that has a pH level of between 5 and 7. The higher the pH level, the harsher it is to your hair. Try to go for a sulfate-free shampoo. Sulfates are relatively cheap chemicals that are effective as a cleaning detergent. However, over time, it will cause your hair follicles to weaken and thus making hair brittle and prone to breakages.

 

2.   Do not skip the conditioner

Your conditioner helps to prevent hair breakage and tangling. It smoothens out your cuticles, leaving your hair soft and healthy after every wash. Try using a comb to get better coverage.

The difference between your regular “rinse out” conditioner and a deep conditioner is that a regular “rinse out” conditioner is typically used on a daily basis whereas deep conditioner is ideally used once a week. The deep conditioner has a thicker consistency and requires you leave in for a longer period of time. It contains ingredients that nourish your cuticles to a higher level.

 

3.   Deep Conditioner

4.   DIY a Protein treatment

This is an extra step to further strengthen your hair. This is an important step for those who frequently dye/style their hair. Doing a protein treatment nourishes your hair. There are many ways to DIY a homemade protein treatment using eggs, mayonnaise, oil. The only way to nourish the hair from the inside is to have a protein-rich diet. With a more balanced protein/moisture, your hair is less prone to breakages/hair fall.

 

5.   Use daily styling aids before any harmful styling tools

It is advisable to use styling aids before the use of any harmful tools such as your curling iron, straightener etc. Even for those who do not style their hair on a regular basis, a long-term use of a hair dryer will also cause hair damages. Go for a heat protectant/ essential oil to keep retain your hair moisture!
