Are you one of the lucky few who never experience a bad hair day? If so, this is rarely based on having great genes. Proper hair care is the more likely reason for having beautiful hair. We are all creatures of habit. Once we have found a good product, we keep using it. As we settle into a routine, we don’t stop and check whether we could do more. Of course, sticking with a routine saves time but you may find a minute today to kick your hair care into higher gear.
Luxurious Hair Care: The Shampoo
Every child knows that hair needs to be washed with shampoo and water every now and then. Rinsing hair with conditioner will make the hair softer and more manageable. This is no secret either. However, you may not be aware of the many other ways to strengthen and beautify hair while shampooing it.
Adding special hair oils to your shampoo will bring an instant new twist to your hair care routine with marvellous improvements to your scalp and hair. Simply parcel out a small amount of shampoo and mix it with a few drops of hair oil. Then apply the mixture to your hair and scalp. Different oils satisfy specific hair care needs. They all provide your hair with a rich deep glow. Your hair will not only look and feel silky, it will also be better protected from damaging influences.
Tip: Use cool water to rinse out the shampoo to stimulate the blood flow to your scalp.
Luxurious Hair Care: Drying Hair
You may also like to change your hair drying routine because gentler drying methods significantly improve the way your hair feels and looks.
To avoid damaging your hair you should never rub your hair dry. Simply dab your hair dry with a towel. Even though you might be in hurry, always keep in mind that wet hair is particularly sensitive.
You may also like to give some thought to your blow-drying routine. Always apply heat protectant before you blow-dry your hair and keep the blow-dryer moving to avoid overheating patches of hair.
Tip: Lower the heat setting of your blow-dryer as soon as the stream of air feels hot on your scalp.
Luxurious Hair Care: Styling Your Hair
Over the years, you may have developed a rather rigid styling routine. You may be surprised to learn how many terrific new styling methods are available. Have fun trying a few of these new methods!
How about changing to a new hairstyle every once in a while? Instead of quickly gathering your hair in a ponytail you may like to try a high-volume style. Volumizing powder will help you create the necessary bounce for many modern hairstyles. You can use it instead of hairspray, styling mousse or any of the other familiar products. Simply distribute the powder in the palms of your hands and then run your hands through your dry hair and over your scalp. Volumizing powder makes the hair more manageable and provides maximum fullness and bounce.
Tip: In case you want to use a flat iron, curling iron or any other heat styling tool after all, make sure that your hair is completely dry before you expose it to heat. Applying heat styling tools to wet hair may damage the hair cuticles as well as the inner hair shaft.
