Hot and dry weather can play havoc with those lustrous locks, and so can the cold and windy weather. That means you need to take good care of your hair at all times and cannot afford to ignore your crowning glory. It is essential to understand your hair rather than blaming the bad weather and pollution all the times. Here are some great tips to moisturize your hair and keep it fresh and clean.
Protect your hair and condition it regularly. This is very essential, especially if you remain out in the sun or live in an industrial area. Your hair can look and smell terrible by the end of the day. Cover your hair with clean scarves and hats, go for a quality shampoo made with natural products and designed for dry hair. Skip the daily shampoo but do condition your dry hair on “off” days.
If you must color your hair, go for the Ammonia-free products. Talk to your hair stylist and ask him for the best ammonia-free permanent or the demi-permanent formulas. The gentler you are with your hair, the fresher they will look. Look for non-chemical options if you want to straighten your hair.
For a quick fresh look, take a tablespoon of baking soda and mix it well in two tablespoons of white vinegar. Rub it well along the hair strands for a few minutes before rinsing thoroughly. Your hair will look bouncier, fresher and shinier within minutes!
Stick to a healthy routine and take your vitamins to keep your hair healthy. Apply rich herbal oils to the roots of your hair. Have your scalp massaged regularly ever week to stimulate the circulation of blood in the area. Change your pillowcase often as dirt picked by your hair gets transferred to your pillow at night.
Most of us struggle with our hair when it comes to keeping them fresh and clean all the time. Moreover, it is not easy, considering the pollution around and the hectic lifestyles of today. Celebrities look the way they are because there is an entire team of hair and fashion stylists working behind them. However, we need not have a stylist team of our own or go to expensive salons every day to get fresher looking hair. All you need to do is follow the above tips.
