Having strong, shiny, vibrant hair can boost your confidence and make you feel ready to take on the world. Follow these easy steps and you’ll soon have the happy, healthy hair you always wanted. No matter what your hair type, check out the following simple do’s and don’ts for healthier, happier and more manageable tresses and banish bad hair days forever.
1-Wash Your Hair Two To Three Times A Week.
How often should you wash your hair? It’s the perennial question of the hair industry and but experts seem to agree that cutting back is a good thing – and washing every day is a mistake, no matter how much you might crave clean-feeling locks. “Your hair’s natural oils are designed to condition and protect your tresses, so when you shampoo daily, it strips these vital oils away,” explains New York-based hairstylist Dan Sharp, whose clients include Kate Winslet, Hilary Swank, and Charlize Theron.”It creates a vicious cycle of over-production of oils and a need to shampoo very often. Ideally, to keep your hair healthy, you only need to wash two to three times a week, max.”
2-Avoid Hot Showers And Shampoo Your Scalp:
Come shampoo time, many of us reach for a large dollop of the good stuff to scrunch into our hair, but there’s a technique to good hair washing and overdoing things on the product front will do more harm than good.
“Healthy, beautiful, shiny hair starts in the shower so make sure to use the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type and level of damage,” says Mark Townsend.
3-Towel-dry your hair before applying conditioner
What conditioner you use and how you use it is, if anything, more important than the shampoo stage. Make sure you invest in a few good quality conditioners and leave-in treatments or hair masks, especially if you have colored hair. “Invest in your color at home,” says stylist Tracey Cunningham. “Gwyneth’s hair is in such good condition because she regularly uses at-home treatments. People are cheap with what they use on hair but don’t treat their cashmere jumper that way.”
4-Brush your hair twice a day, from the bottom up
Healthy hair needs regular brushing but don’t tear through your locks mindlessly.
“For perfectly shiny, healthy and untangled hair, you need to brush your hair twice a day, ” says stylist Laura Superbi of iconic French hair salon Jean Louis David. “Once in the morning and once before going to bed, for about a minute each time.”
5-Try castor oil, hair oil and dry shampoo
Every hair stylist has a secret arsenal of favourite products to give your hair that extra dose of va-va-voom. Here, some of the world’s leading experts share their star formulas…
Stylist Andy LeCompte is a big fan of hair oil: “Just like applying facial oil can help regulate oil production on your skin, hair oil can do the same for your scalp. There’s no need to go crazy with applying oil, but don’t be afraid to use oil if you have oily hair. It’ll actually help to regulate how oily your scalp is, because your hair won’t feel as though it needs to naturally overcompensate for dryness.”
