Hi guys! So recently my hair, particularly the ends of my hair had become SO SO SO dry that it was just looking weird and untidy. And if you know me I always love a good hair day! I love getting my hair done, having neat or well done hair makes me feel alive! So when my ends were becoming way too dry I was a bit concerned. This was also happening because the color in my hair is wearing off and I need to go renew it - but I am waiting for my birthday to do so lol :P
Anyway, below are a few things I did to get the health of my hair back!
I have started oiling my hair at home once a week and I am trying to go for a hot oil massage at the salon at least once in 2-3 weeks. The difference between the salon is that the steam adds moisture in the hair, making it slightly softer than before - at least that's what I feel
2. Heat Protect Spray
THIS I feel has made a significant difference. I blow dry and straighten my hair A LOT! And I have noticed an obvious difference when I use the spray and when I do not. Just wash your hair, towel dry it and then apply the spray before you dry your hair. Your hair will smell good and even feel better after! I use the TRESemme Heat Protect Spray and it is available in Spinneys and I think most other supermarkets
There are times when I apply serum after - these are usually shine serums which complete the look of the hair and add shine. To be very very honest with you, I do not always follow this step and do not really see much difference through this. If I remember, I apply it - if I don't - too bad! I have used two serums - one is the Touche Finale from Kerastase ( AED 130 approx) and Lee Stafford Poker Straight Shine Serum ( AED 45 approx)
I wash my hair EVERY SINGLE DAY! I do not necessarily suggest this for everyone. My scalp gets oily really fast and I hate the crown of my head looking oily - I feel like I am not clean. This is why I shampoo my hair everyday! And I have checked with a Trichologist ( a hair doctor) if there is anything wrong with shampooing your hair everyday, and against all myths there is nothing wrong with it! I keep changing my shampoos but I keep going back to Dove. I love their moisturizing range but I have recently fallen in love with their Advanced Hair Series range - it smells divine and feels super fresh!
5. Regular Trimming
I think this is the most important one! I use to be a fool to think that if I trim my hair every 6-8 weeks how will it ever grow? But there is no point in your hair growing with split ends that keep getting deeper and deeper. I feel regularly trimming you hair helps it look clean and gives you a fresh look too. I haven't really changed my hair style in the longest time or maybe even EVER! I have maintained the same look and length - too scared to experiment I guess lol
And to be honest, dry hair or not, these are a few things I do to my hair on a regular basis. Just that with the dryness increasing, I started noticing it more and increased some of the efforts such as oiling my hair at home!
