Step by step Haircare routine
Our hair needs all care and nourishment to flourish just like our face and body. A properly nourished and hydrated hair not only supports you now but also prevents the unthinkable process of our hair breaking and hair loss in future. So, it is better to start taking care of your hair now. Here are some normal steps included in every hair care routine for you to stick with. Oil massage Oil massage once a week helps to increase blood circulation in your hair scalp and promotes hair growth. Massage your hair with coconut or olive oil before shampooing. You can see the difference only in one use. But, you should be careful because doing oil massage when you have dandruff and scalp infections sometimes makes the situation worse. Shampooing Shampooing is a staple step in our everyday hair care routine. Shampooing our hair removes dead skin cells, germs, and hair products. You need to wet your hair thoroughly before applying shampoo and gently apply it. It is important to properly rinse off the shampoo after every wash. It is said that oily hair needs more shampooing than dry hair as they have more oil to be removed. It is better to use sulfate-free shampoo than other shampoos that contain sulfate. Conditioner Applying conditioner after shampooing smooths the hair cuticles and makes the hair silky. It locks the moisture in the hair. It is especially important for dry hair. It makes hair tangle free and softer. Conditioner should be applied to partially wet hair and should be rinsed properly. Hair treatment Conditioners are for normal hair while hair treatments are specially used for damaged hair. Hair damage can be due to heating tools or bleaching. Treatments are used after shampooing. It should be applied at the end of the hair. Avoid using treatment cream on your scalp as it contains chemicals that are not suitable for the scalp skin. Hair treatments help reduce hair falls and split ends. Hair serum and hair protectant After shampooing and using conditioner and hair treatment hair serum can be applied. Similarly, heat protectants can be applied to damp or dry hair before styling. Heat protectant acts like a barrier and protects the hair from heat damage. Hair serum on the other hand gives shine to hair and reduces dryness in hair. It is better to use heating tools in hair less frequently as possible as heat causes a lot of hair damage.
