Lush, swinging hair is not just for shampoo-ad models. You can get that too. All you have to do is give your stressed-out, over-processed hair a break. Treat with the right set of products and some extra care, and you will have your crowning glory back in three months – that’s the time it takes for hair to start showing signs of health.
Keep your hair in top condition
That’s right. No amount of expensive haircuts and elaborate styling can ever compensate for hair that is in bad condition. It just can’t look good if it is dry and coarse; or has split ends; or is lank and greasy; and worst of all, if it’s dirty. First of all, oil your hair regularly to nourish the scalp and hair, and keep it glossy. Try a scalp soothing oil like Jovees Bhringraj and Olive Hair Oil. Massaging oil into your scalp improves blood circulation to the roots which in turn feed the hair follicles and stimulate growth. Try a hair oil massage at least once a week.
Keep it clean
Shiny hair is healthy hair. Grime, dirt, sweat and excess sebum on the scalp can mar that shine and clog the roots, thus hurting the natural growth process. Wash your hair with a shampoo meant for your scalp, and condition with a shine boosting conditioner like Dove Hair Therapy Nutritive Solutions Daily Shine Conditioner.
Invest in a good hair cut
Nothing can beat well-cut hair. Consult a good hair stylist who will recommend a style that will suit your bone structure as well as your hair type. There’s no point getting a geometric style if you have hair with curls and volume – it just won’t work. The ideal hair style will be one that will enhance your face and that is easy to maintain. Try not to get a hair style that is high maintenance and takes up time – it will be a loss in the long run.
Keep those accessories handy
You’ll be surprised at the variety of hair accessories available in the store these days. They will help you style your hair without hurting your strands.
