Top 5 Hair Care Tips

Hello beauties,

I had mentioned in my previous post about my hair story. Today I am going to share a few tips which have helped me in regaining some of the lost hair glory, though I still have a long way to go...

1. Oil Regularly: This is one of the most common advice, which has been handed down from generation to generation in our country. I didn't use to believe it first, but now after having the horrifying experience of loosing out the beauty and texture of my skin, I am a true believer. Since I have an oily scalp, my oil application is mostly concentrated through the length of my hair, the part which is far from the scalp and not receiving the nutrition. Doing this has simplified my hair wash routine and I have observed better shine and manageability of my hair.

2. Wash hair twice (or thrice a week): Earlier I used to feel that my hair is getting greasy and used to wash them every alternate day. However, I soon realized that I am stripping away the natural oils from my scalp too frequently and therefore turning my hair oilier. Now I try to limit my hair washes to a maximum of three per week and am coping just fine. Initially, the hair turned greasy but soon enough my hair got the hang of it and are not so greasy anymore between washes.

3. Condition hair after every wash: One of the most important hair care rules is to condition hair. Shampoos strip away essential oils and nutrients from the hair leaving the hair shaft dry. However, conditioned hair not only stay fresh longer, but are tangle free for longer duration, since the hair shaft gets the goodness of oils and moisture back. Just make sure not to condition near your hair roots and wash off the conditioner properly. You can alternatively use leave in conditioners, which are primarily silicon based, such as, Livon.

4. Use Wooden Combs: This tip I have read on the internet by some gorgeous beauties with even more gorgeous hair. They mention never ever using a plastic comb or brush and raving about the benefits of wooden comb, such as they don't cause static, they are natural hence better for hair, they help in oil control, and so on. I was intrigued and decided to go ahead with a wooden comb. And it turned out that changing to a wooden comb has been the best decision I have ever made for my hair. Wooden combs don't stretch your hair or tangle them and leave them with a beautiful volume 'cause of their anti-static properties. Now I have two wooden combs and a wooden brush, all of which help me in managing my hair with a relaxed ease.

5. Use Henna for greying hair: I am a huge fan of natural products and not just organic or herbal. So, why use a chemical laden dye for hair? Since I started having grey hair, I have decided to use Henna and Henna only for coloring my hair. I mix coffee in my henna to make the orangey tines less pronounced in my hair. Moreover, I have dark brown hair leading to a less significant contrast with the Henna. Currently, I am using henna from Khadi and have tries Henna from brands, such as, Just Herbs, Jovees etc.

So these are the hair care tips which have worked for me. What is your hair care routine? Do let me know in the comments below.

See ya...
