Whilst it may not seem important, looking after your hair is absolutely essential. It really doesn’t take long for your hair to become damaged, but it takes much longer to bring it back to its happy and healthy self.
If you’re worried about looking after your hair – especially in the winter months – I’ve put together a handy guide with 7 tips to help keep your hair in good condition:
- Use Intensive Treatments Once A Week
There are lots of amazing intense hair treatments that, if used correctly, can do absolute wonders for your hair. Try finding a deep conditioning treatment that is perfectly suited to your hair and use it a maximum of once a week to repair any damage your hair as had throughout the week. You’ll be surprised at the difference it can make!
- Avoid Washing Your Hair Every Day
Although some people think that washing your hair every single day is good for it, it’s actually quite damaging. Your hair isn’t designed to withstand so much product, so using shampoo and conditioner every single day can put a lot of strain on it. Try washing your hair every three days if possible.
- Rub Conditioner On The Ends Of Your Hair
If you find that conditioner makes your hair feel greasy, trying rubbing it on the ends of your hair rather than using it all over. It could be that just the ends need conditioning.
- Let Your Hair Air Dry
Using an excessive amount of heat on your hair is really bad for it. Whilst it may be hard to avoid every time, letting your hair air dry is a great way to give it a chance to breathe.
- Use A Water Softener
