The Ultimate Haircare Guide for Different Hair Types

If you want healthy, nourished and amazing looking hair, then you need to establish a good hair care routine. You’d be surprised how much of a difference this can make to the condition of your hair. So, if your current routine is limited to a quick shampoo and brush, it’s probably time to pay more attention to your mane.

Here are some of the best top tips that you can follow in Tackling Different Hair Types


Damaged

Damage can stem from bleach, heat or chemicals which make it brittle and prone to breakage. It’s a good idea to trim off any dead ends otherwise your hair will find it hard to flourish. You’ll probably fall in love with Olaplex 3, as it is quite literally a hero to damaged hair. It will also make your hair feel and look better and way healthier even though you might have just gotten in some new highlights. Crazy right?!

Olaplex 3 is a great product to invest in as it rebuilds hair bonds. Let’s just say that it is definitely worth it.

In order to care for your damaged hair, let your hair rest for a while, try giving it moisture and let it breathe by keeping your hair down as much as you can. Limit further damage in the future such as dying your hair less often, air drying instead of using a hairdryer and using good hair products. Basically, try avoiding as much bleach, heat, or other chemicals that are damaging to your hair.


Dry

Miss that silky smooth feel to your hair? Well same, until realizing that studying the hair can bring great benefits since you get to know your hair more.

Now, when we say “studying” we don’t quite literally mean go and open a textbook or read several hundred articles. Don’t worry about all that. All we meant was find a mirror, preferably with some decent lighting and start feeling out your hair. What does it feel like to you?

A few of us found that our scalps and roots of our hair were oily almost every day, but the rest of the hair, from midway to the ends were dry. This might just be because we needed to wash it more often and use a better conditioner. But no. It was actually the other way around.

So, think about the way you’ve been treating your hair – Do you use excessive heat? Do you choose your shampoo and conditioner carefully?

First of all, the one most important thing to note is that you don’t need to wash your hair every day. Yes, this may shock many, and many may think “but my hair gets oily quickly”. The reason your hair gets oily that quick is due to the fact that you wash it every day. This removes the natural oils from your hair in turn making your hair produce more to make up for the lack of oils, also it makes your hair look dry and dull.

When you do wash it, look more carefully at the products you are using. Many hair products strip your hair instead of clarifying your scalp and adding moisture back in. Cut down on heat styling and embrace your natural texture a little more to reduce heat-related damage.


Frizzy

There is nothing worse in terms of bad hair day when frizz comes into play.

Anyone who suffers from frizz knows how it ruins our natural hair days, and when we have an event or special occasion and wanted to style our hair it would always show up later during the occasion and ruin that beautifully styled hair.

But fret no more.

Often, frizz relates to how dry your hair is. But, one way of tackling this is to regularly use hair masks that penetrate your hair follicles and make your hair look and feel healthier from the inside out. You can use a serum to smooth each strand and keep flyaway hairs in place.

Try not to touch your hair, especially if you have curly hair as this will disrupt the curl pattern resulting in less definition and more frizz.

If you don’t want to constantly use styling products to rid yourself of the frizz for the night, try investing in something so comfortable that we doubt you’d say no to, like a silk pillowcase.

Most hair damage, dryness, and frizz come from the place you might call heaven on earth. Yes, we are talking about your bed, even during the most comfortable nights come the most uncomfortable mornings for your hair.

Think about it. When we sleep, we tend to rub our heads against our pillows in the middle of the night, typically as we roll over unconsciously. This causes friction in the hair which leads to several breakages, frizz, and if your pillow is cotton then it most likely leads to dryness as well.

We would recommend getting the best quality silk pillowcase you can get, or you can even try out a silk headwrap first and see how it goes.
