Me and my locks are the happiest during the cold months of the year. I could describe my hair as fine/ straight/ mid-length/ a tad bit oily and sometimes moody. You may feel I don’t like my hair much given the description but that’s not the case. I’m pretty ok with my hair actually, though sometimes I like to crib about them like all other girls ( guilty :p ). When it comes to hair care, I tend to be a little careless compared to maybe my skin care routine. I like to keep my hair care routine pretty simple and easy. I have a super oily scalp because of which I end up washing my hair at least 3-4 times in a week during summer and about 2-3 times in a week during winter.
I follow a pattern when it comes to getting my hair cut/ trimmed. Come every season change, it’s time for a trim – also a good way to remember when it’s due. I don’t experiment with my hair much; I stick to a basic trim just to clean up the ends. My past experiences have taught me not to experiment much with my hair (it has always turned out to be a disaster. Maybe I will share few pictures with you all on a day I am feeling brave- haha)
Here is a picture of the hair care products I’m currently using and enjoying 🙂
FEW HAIR CARE TIPS I HAVE LEARNT IN ALL THESE YEARS…
> Wash your hair as less as possible.
> Always de-tangle your hair before you step under the shower. Dry hair is a lot stronger than wet hair. Don’t comb your hair immediately after the shower; let them air dry first.
> Never skip the conditioner – hair feel thirsty too. Shampooing strips your hair and scalp of its moisture; conditioner helps retain the moisture level. If you have an extremely oily scalp -much like me – skip applying conditioner on the scalp. You can apply it just on the length of the hair.
> Use a pea-sized amount of serum on the ends of your hair to smoothen them out once your hair is towel dried. If you plan to use any hot tools on your hair, do it only after your hair is semi dry and make sure to use either a heat protector spray or some leave-in conditioner first. (I use the L’Oreal Iron finish leave-in conditioner – does wonders for me).
> Use a tangle teaser or a wide-mouthed comb before you use a regular comb or a paddle brush to de-tangle your hair. If your hair is really knotty like mine, I would recommend investing in a tangle teaser (trust me you will thank me for introducing you to this wonder hair brush). Always start combing your hair from the ends to the roots. This way you don’t end up tugging your hair which causes breakage.
> Last but not the least, eat healthy and drink plenty of water. This will help your hair look shiny and lovely. Let’s face it ladies – we abhor bad hair days.
