Wash day is here! A lot of us plan our hair wash days in advance according to occasions, meetings and other important purposes. Many a time, you may shampoo your hair on the day of the special event and may end up looking like a messy frizz ball or a greasy mess.
If you’ve been there done that, it means that you’re not washing your hair the right way. It requires technique and gentle care. Read on to know where you could be going wrong. After all, we all long for silky, shiny and healthy hair and it starts with washing your hair, the right way. Read on to know how.
1. Detangle Your Hair
Always… we repeat… always detangle your hair before jumping into the shower. Hair is in its most fragile and vulnerable state when under a running faucet of water. It is prone to breakage and severe damage. First, remove the knots with your fingers and then use a wide-toothed comb.
2. Use The Right Kind Of Water
The next step to washing your hair the right way is to using luke-warm or room temperature water. Although super relaxing, hot water will only dry your hair out further. Also make sure the water you use is clean as hard water will only lead to rough, dry hair and leave a residue on your hair and scalp and you definitely do not want that!
3. Less Is More
Less is more. Avoid your hair every day as it strips your hair of natural moisture. It is a vicious circle, your scalp will produce more oil to compensate on lack of moisture in your hair. Use BBLUNT Perfect Balance Shampoo to restore that moisture and reduce hair washes to twice a week. For days when your hair is extremely greasy, use BBLUNT Beach Please Back To Life Dry Shampoo.
4. Condition, condition and condition
Due to the lack of moisture, frizzy hair tends to absorb moisture from the environment. This leads to a frizzy head – a very, very messy one indeed. We cannot stress the importance of conditioner. It restores the hair with moisture.
5. Use The Right Type of Towel
The friction caused by drying hair with a thick towel can lead to loss of moisture, breakage and brittle hair. It’s like hair massacre! Use a micro-fibre towel or a cotton t-shirt and slip your hair and tie a turban. Do not rub it against your hair. Leave it there for 5-10 minutes and air dry hair.
6. Seal in the Moisture
Lastly, seal in the moisture. Use a heavy oil, serum or butter to lock all the moisture in. Remember, frizz id your worst enemy. Hence, lock the moisture in with BBLUNT Intense Moisture Hair Serum enriched with avocado, jojoba, argon oil and vitamin E. All things good for hair!
