Shampoo & Conditioner
A good hair care routine doesn’t need to cost the earth or involve hundreds of lotions and potions, a good shampoo and conditioner can be enough for most people. The key to choosing the correct shampoo and conditioner is first figuring out what type of hair you have. For example, if you find that your roots get greasy easily, you should choose a shampoo and conditioner designed to reduce oil and keep your hair fresh. If your scalp feels tight and itchy, or you notice flakes of dandruff from time to time, you’ll need to choose hair products that are more nourishing and hydrating. If your hair is generally happy and healthy, you’ll be able to use products for normal hair without any problem.
Once you’ve figured this out, spend some time looking at the products in your local supermarket or chemist. Read the bottles, see what the benefits of each are, and then make your choice.
It’s worth noting that your hair condition can change, so if you notice your hair is becoming dry, or has changed from flaky to oily, make sure to update your hair care routine as appropriate.
Hair treatments are fantastic to keep your locks nourished, and can help combat any troublesome issues you have with your hair or scalp. Moisturising treatments are especially important for men with long or curly hair, as these hair types need a little extra TLC to stop it becoming dry and frizzy.
Hair treatments and masques should be carried out every fortnight if your hair is in particularly poor condition. Once it is feeling happier and healthier, switch to a more normal routine of once every six to eight weeks, depending on your individual hair health.
The products and tools you use for styling your hair can also impact its health. If you blow dry or straighten your hair regularly, ensure that you incorporate a heat protection spray into your routine to prevent heat damage, frizz and split ends.
If you use styling gels and pomades, opt for more gentle formulas that won’t leave your hair feeling sticky or crunchy. This can take a little trial and error though, so try a few different products until you find one that is perfect for you.
This simple routine will help your hair to be stronger and healthier, whilst helping it to look shiny and frizz-free.
