How to give your hair the hydration it needs
It’s easy to fall into a repetitive habit of shampooing, conditioning, and blow-drying, every day. Yet are you sure that you're doing what you need to ensure healthy hair? Here are some helpful hints to let you know if you could benefit from changing up your routine.
Split ends and frizz? Beef up your hair conditioning.
Split ends, static, and frizz are classic signs of dry, damaged hair, and show that you need to include more conditioning in your routine to ensure healthy hair. First of all, are you conditioning every time you wash your hair? And are you using the right conditioner? While there are some great, powerful conditioners for thick hair, these can be overly heavy for thinner locks, and cause problems in the long run. Fructis Sleek & Shine Conditioner smoothes hair without weighing it down. Make sure you use a clarifying conditioner every once in a while, too, which will clear up any build-up of hair product.
And conditioning isn’t only for using after shampoo, either. Most people don’t wash their hair every day, which is good, as over-washing can cause more harm, yet that doesn’t mean you don’t need to condition. By applying a leave-in conditioner like Fructis Sleek & Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream, you can keep healthy hair for longer without irritating it with over-washing.
A deep conditioning hair mask is also a great idea, used once a week or every two weeks, for really boosting your hair’s health. Special products like a hair mask for split ends are easy to find, and can transform how your hair looks and feels. Masks are also a simple way to keep colored hair looking vibrant and glossy. Take, for example, the specially designed Garnier Whole Blends Color Care Mask with Argan Oil & Cranberry extracts, which is created to provide deep nourishment and protection for colored-treated hair.
Finally, if you have noticed that your hair often gets dry and easily breaks or splits, you may want to consider combing in some oils to keep it sleek and nourished. While you can buy special hair oils, there are also products for ensuring healthy hair that contain coconut, almond, or argan oil, which have been proven effective. Fructis Moroccan Sleek Oil Treatment with argan oil delivers a concentrated dose of hydration that's instantly absorbed for smooth, frizz-free hair without any oily residue.
