My hair and I have a love/hate relationship. Sometimes I’ll roll out of bed and it already looks styled, but sometimes my hair is harder to tame than me at an all you can eat cookie buffet…
It’s taken me a while to actually figure out the whole ‘haircare’ thing properly but I’ve finally had enough trial and errors and bad hair days (and I mean bad hair days) that I think I’ve managed to nail down the four most important things I’ve learned so far about haircare and healthy hair maintenance:
Because it will make your hair oily and it’s not pleasant. This is especially hard not to do if you have a fringe but trust me when I say that not touching your hair will extend the time between your washes pretty significantly.
I used to think that I could get away with using the same haircare routine no matter what but if I’m being honest I know that for the best results I should really change my washing regime depending on different factors like what I’ve done (sweaty workout etc?), the climate, the level of pollution of wherever I am and so on. Based on all of that I might need to wash more or less often and swap out my products, but it’s mainly all just about not doing the same bog-standard routine and expecting it to work miracles.
I’m talking hair masks, treatments, lotions, potions, the works. Don’t neglect them all for months like I did and then wonder why your hair looks sad (can hair even look sad? Well mine did.) Nowadays I switch it up depending on what my hair needs but I always like to have something nourishing on hand for when my hair is feeling dry, damaged and all round just looking a little like straw.
I’d recommend: The *Sachajuan Hair Repair Treatment because it smells like musk (so good) and works wonders for my hair if it’s look rough. I use this instead of conditioner and apply it mainly to the ends of my hair, leave it for a few minutes and then rinse and my hair is left feeling silky smooth. This treatment would be especially handy if your hair is wiry or damaged but if your hair is fine then I’d avoid using this near the roots.
