How to have great hair every day!
Having a great hair day every day may seem impossible. But your hair is an extension of you, and how you feel about it in the morning can set the tone for the rest of your day—and a good hair day translates. Incorporating these simple steps into your beauty routine can give your hair everything it needs to look amazing and hair salon-fresh from morning until night.
How Often Should You Wash Your Hair? Wash Only as Needed
Washing your hair every day can dry out hair, increasing hair frizz and creating buildup. If you have color-treated hair, daily hair washing can also lead to premature fading hair color. Some professionals recommend skipping a day or two between shampoos to give your hair time to recover its natural hair oils between washes. But how often you should wash your hair really depends on your hair type. Super oily hair requires more frequent hair washing, while dry hair can go three days or more without a shampoo. If you’re a daily hair washer, it might seem scary to change your beauty routine. Choosing a hairstyle that allows your hair to go longer without washing – like longer layers – can help you skip a few days with confidence. Carry a dry shampoo, like Fructis Pure Clean Dry Shampoo, in your handbag and use it whenever oils feel out of control to keep your second- and third-day hair looking fresh.
Moisturize Hair More
The right amount of moisture helps give your hair the daily shine and bounce it needs. Without enough hair moisture, you run the risk of dry, brittle hair. Not enough hair moisture can also lead to hair breakage and split ends. This is especially true for a beauty routine that involves regularly heat-styling hair. Before using your blow dryer, flat iron or curling iron, use an intense hydrating hair product like Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream or Sleek and Shine Moroccan Sleek Hair Oil Treatment. These types of hair care products give hair the hydration it needs to protect each hair strand and keep it shiny and silky.
Be Gentle on Hair
Brushing wet hair can do way more damage than you might think. Great hair every day requires gentle hair detangling before drying and styling; otherwise, you risk hair breakage. Using the right hair tools in your beauty regimen makes all the difference. First, choose your hair brushes according to your hair type. Then, decide what you want. To smooth wet hair, consider a wide-toothed comb or pick. Then, when it’s time to blow dry hair, many salon professionals recommend a boar bristle brush. Boar hair is very similar in texture to human hair and allows the brush to gently massage the scalp, which helps distribute hair oils and produce perfect shiny hair while styling.
Use a Hair Treatment
A good beauty routine doesn’t consist of just shampoo and conditioner. For hair that looks healthy and feels it, too, a more intensive hair treatment can work wonders. Plus, treatment formulas containing certain ingredients that target specific hair problems you’re dealing with, like hair damage and frizz. You can’t go wrong with leave-in kinds like Whole Blends Miracle Nectar for very damaged hair, and Frizz Tamer for dry, frizzy hair, which help bring hair to its shiniest, softest state. Everyday wear-and-tear can add up, so counteracting it with a hair treatment can be more restorative than your usual hair care routine alone.
