My hairstylist tells me I’m so fickle when it comes to my hair. I get bored with it easily so I always bug her about changing my hair color. I used to plead with her all the time to allow me to change it and she’d always say no. Now though, we’ve learned to compromise. But even so, all the chemicals plus the styling my hair goes through every time I have shoots have already taken its toll on my hair’s health. If only my hair can speak, it would probably say something really unpleasant to me. Hint: it starts with the letter “F”.
Now that I’m older and wiser, I’ve learned to take care of my hair and steer it back to the road of healthiness. Not only do I go to the salon at least once every month for a treatment, I also do in-home treatments using affordable products once every week. I understand not everyone has the time and resources to go to the salon all the time so the latter solution is perfect. You don’t really have to spend a lot to get that luscious hair back. Trust me. Just follow these simple steps!
Wash your hair with a gentle shampoo, preferably one that targets your primary concern. Mine is dry/damaged hair so I need all the hydration I can get.
Apply a really moisturizing conditioner onto your hair, except your roots. Well, at least that’s what I do. You see I have really fine hair so if I put conditioner onto my roots, it gets flat and loses volume. Instead, I focus on the tips of my hair which tend to get drier than the rest. Leave it on for a good few minutes then rinse.
Next, time for deep conditioning. I prefer treatments that make use of Argan Oil or Tsubaki. They work great on me! All you have to do is apply it onto your hair. Work your way up from the tips of your hair to your roots. Again, make sure you focus more on the tips. Massage your hair for a few minutes then cover it with a shower cap. Leave it on for a couple of hours depending on how much time you have to spare. (2 hours is good enough but you have a lot of time, the longer, the better.) If you want it to be more effective, you can opt to use a blow dryer on low heat setting and direct hot air to your hair. Finally, rinse.
