For a healthy mane, you need to take care of your hair the right way. It’s a multi-step process with several dos and don’ts – there’s no singular best way to take care of your hair. Here are a few tips on how to take care of your hair for best results.
The Perils Of Not Washing Your Hair
To take care of your hair, you need to wash it. Of course, how you wash it, how often you wash it and what you wash it with will determine what kind of damage is caused to your hair, but by not washing your hair completely, you are inviting unnecessary damage and dirt.
Your unwashed hair strands can attract dust, you may find odours emanating from your hair and scalp, and you may even notice the development of some dandruff. Remember to wash your hair every 2-3 days using a natural shampoo and lukewarm or cold water so as not to try out your hair.
What Happens When You Don’t Condition
Conditioning is an important step of the hair care process, and you need to condition in order to take care of your hair and keep it shiny. Conditioners contain elements that make your hair smooth and manageable, avoiding fly-aways and frizz. It also adds a layer of protection from environmental aggressors and heated styling tools. If you don’t condition, your hair is more prone to damage, so make it a part of your routine, remembering to apply along the length of your hair and avoiding the scalp.
Brushing The Wrong Way – Or Not Brushing At All
Another way to take care of your hair is to brush it properly. When you don’t, know that damage will come calling. You should be careful not to brush your hair when it’s wet. This is because wet hair is much weaker than dry hair and needs special treatment.
Ideally, brush your hair before your shower. If you do need to comb it out after, then do so with a wide-toothed comb that won’t break the delicate strands of your hair. On the other end of the spectrum, if you don’t brush your hair, you will end up with tangles and knots, and even excess product build-up.
As soon as we hop out of the shower, we’re often obsessed with drying our hair and rushing out the door. But you need to be gentle with your drying regimen to take care of your hair without damaging it.
Instead of a rough towel dry, try using an old cotton tee shirt to dry your locks – this is much more gentle on your just-washed (and more delicate) strands. And hair drying regularly is also a no-no, as this can damage the scalp and dry out the length of your hair. The best way to take care of your hair after a wash is to air-dry naturally. Sure, it takes longer, but in the long run it’s better for your hair!
Take Care Of Your Hair With Regular Oiling
Oiling is one of the best ways to take care of your hair, moisturize and nourish it. A regular oil massage – perhaps once or twice a week – will help keep your hair soft and promote hair growth by agitating the follicles and increasing blood circulation. You can use any oil from coconut to almond to jojoba and argan oil.
Or you can choose an oil that’s enriched with Ayurveda, like Herbora. Herbora is a 100% organic and all-natural hair oil that is formulated with a variety of Ayurveric herbs and roots like brahmi, amla, tulsi, neem, bhringraj and more.
