Tangled & Damaged hair? Follow These Steps For Healthier & Shiny Hair
The constant stress of our daily life damages not only our personal health, but also the health of our locks. With the relentless styling, colouring, straightening, and the lack of proper hair care routine, it is inevitable to have lifeless damaged hair. It is the story of everyone.
Consistent exposure to hair treatments and chemical products can dry up the moisture in your hair and make it frizzy. The natural oils in your scalp also take a hit.
While it might seem impossible to incorporate a lengthy hair care routine in your daily schedule, there are a few steps you can follow to improve the health of your hair.
We have curated a list of small changes that go a long way. These steps are easy enough to follow without taking a toll on your pocket.
Using A Cotton Cloth As A Towel to Control Damaged Hair
The usual towels that we use often soak up the natural moisture in our hair leaving them dry and frizzy. Using abrasive methods of drying, such as rubbing, can not only dry out your hair but also create friction. This can lead to stripping, breakage, and tangles in your hair, resulting in overall weakness in your hair.
Replacing your regular towel with a cotton t-shirt or a microfibre towel is a game changer. These alternatives will help you preserve the hair moisture after washing.
You should squeeze or pat dry your hair, instead of rubbing it. You can also scrunch dry your hair to provide more definition to your hair.
You can even wrap up your hair in the cotton cloth after washing and wait for it to dry. Avoid using any heating tool to dry your hair.
Limit The Hair Dyes And Heat Tools
Styling your hair might be more convenient, but causes great damage to your hair. Continuous use of heating tools on your hair can result in brittle and damaged strands of hair. Extended exposure can also result in split ends.
You can opt to style your hair every once in a while, but doing it regularly is not a good option.
The same goes for hair colour. Although colouring your hair is extremely liberating and self-expressive, there are a few things you must keep in mind. Since you are already putting the stress of bleach and dyes on your hair, it is important that you pay extra attention.
You can go for specific products that cater to the needs of coloured hair. These shampoos and conditioners not only provide moisture but also help to retain your hair colour, which in turn extends your color cycle.
Wash Hair With Lukewarm Water
The temperature with which you wash your hair contributes to the health of your hair. Both cold and hot water have their own advantages and disadvantages. While hot water opens up your hair cuticles and helps in blood circulation.
This allows the products to be absorbed much more easily. But hot water can also be harsh on your hair and leave them frizzy and brittle.
Similarly, cold water helps in locking in moisture and minimising the frizz. But excessively using cold water can affect the volume of your hair and weaken your roots. Moreover, in winters, cold water isn’t a viable option.
Therefore, the best options are to wash your hair with lukewarm water or to switch between the two. Lukewarm water is strong enough to clear out your hair and gentle enough to protect it. Switching between the two might not work at certain times of the year but is a good option as well.
Use Organic Shampoo And Conditioner
Most of the hair products are bound to contain multiple chemicals and synthetics. These can cause irritation, itching, and allergies in your scalp. Some ingredients even dry out the hair faster and do not help with moisture retention. All this causes the hair to weaken and get dry and dull.
PURC’s organic shampoos and conditioners, on the other hand, are made out of oil extracts, plant butter, fruit extracts etc. These natural ingredients help to nourish the hair and provide the necessary moisture. Using organic products over synthetic ones is always the better option. They help in controlling frizz, brittleness, dryness and so on. They even provide the hair with natural oils that often get depleted. In fact, there are many other advantages of using organic products.
Include A Hair Mask
Another great product to include in your hair care routine is a hair mask. These are basically a form of intense conditioning treatment that helps to heal damaged hair. These contain the natural oils and other conditioning elements in a much greater concentration than a conditioner. PURC’s hair masks make the hair shinier and smoother, add more moisture to them, and also makes the scalp healthier.
You can apply the hair mask directly on your hair and scalp with your hands. You need to let the mask stay on for nearly 30 minutes after which you can rinse it off. You can either buy hair masks or DIY them at your home.
Properly taking care of your hair might seem like a tough task at first, but once you start to take these small steps you will see the difference. Even a change in the kind of water you use can greatly affect the health of your hair. PURC’s wide range of organic product lines can help you get healthy luscious hair that you have always been longing for.
