Benefits of Changing Your Hair Regimen

Even if you’ve been using the same products forever sometimes it’s important and healthy for you to switch up your hair regimen. This is particularly true if your hair recently underwent a change such as coloring, a big chop or you sustained damage. We’re looking at five small changes you can make to your hair regimen with big results.

1. Add Naturally-Based Oils for Hair to Your Routine

No matter what your hair type it can benefit from naturally-based oils which won’t make it greasy but can help it be shinier and softer to the touch. You can incorporate these oils in a multitude of ways — as a leave-in conditioner, pre-shampoo conditioning treatment or a detangler. Some good options to use are argan oil, jojoba and coconut oil.

2. Leave Your Hair Alone More Often

This tip is as easy as it gets! Are you the type of person that washes or heat styles their hair every day? Try putting your hair under less stress by going a day without touching your hair in between. Heat and frequent washes can make hair appear dull over time and can make it feel brittle. Give your hair room to breathe.

3. Try a Hair Mask

Is your routine wash, condition and maybe add a leave-in product? If your hair is damaged try to restore it with a nourishing hair mask. Hair masks are similar to conditioners. Some have a higher density of oils and humectants, and are designed to enhance the look of shine, bounce for healthier looking hair.

4. Change Your Hairstyle

If you always wear your hair in a ponytail or down, try something new, changing it up will be good for your hair. For example if your hair is in a tight topknot you may be sustaining damage in the area where the band is tightly woven around your hair. Wear it down more often to avoid breakage.

5. Watch How You Brush

When and how you brush your hair can really affect frizz, smoothness and can breakage in your hair. Hair is most as risk for damage when it’s wet, try to comb it with a wide-toothed comb and be gentle with it so as to stretch and damage your treasured tresses. You can also invest in a special wet brush that’s suited to go through wet hair and will detangle but protect your hair. Try to avoid brushing your hair when it’s dry as this can make it appear more frizzy. When in doubt use your fingers, they are a way to detangle and style your hair.
