4 Ways To Look After Your Hair


With the current situation in place, it's likely you're thinking more about your health and beauty than usual. I mean, when you're sat at home for hours on end, taking care of yourself becomes a priority and so does trying out some new ways to keep yourself in check.

If you're looking for ways to look after your hair but are unsure where to begin then don't worry as there are some simple ways to protect your hair from becoming more damaged. Whether you're thinking of starting a new hair care regime, it is important that you make sure you're doing all you can to keep your hair looking strong and healthy.

Whilst it may be overwhelming to take on a new way of doing things, there are lots of tips and tricks you can pick up to ensure you're doing the right thing, and protecting your locks. With that in mind, here are 4 ways to look after your hair:

Go To The Hairdressers Every Six To Eight Weeks
Now obviously this is hard at the moment, but a good hair care routine means going to the professionals for your hair looking after. Home dyes are no good for your hair in the long run, whereas a stylist will make sure to use the correct products, colours and care, to make sure your hair is in tip top condition. You should aim to go around every 6-8 weeks, although I do leave my colour a little longer as I go for balayage and it doesn't need doing as often.

Although you won’t need to have a lot cut off each time you visit if you go regular, you will be able to maintain the style you have now much easier. And if you are struggling with dry roots from past torment, you could consider having Invisible Tape In Hair Extensions to give your hair length without keeping those dry and damaged ends. 


Wash It Twice A Week Max
The problem a lot of women have with hair, is the greasiness, so they opt to wash it more to rid the grease. This actually has the opposite effect and the only way to rid the oiliness in the long run, is to leave it longer between washes. Ideally, you should be aiming for just once a week but if you start out twice a week and then slowly leave more time between each wash to give your hair that break. 

Use Products With No Sulphates Or Parabens
Another great way to look after your hair is to use shampoo and conditioner that don't contain sulphates or parabens. Being honest, this probably means paying more for these essentials, but using products that contain nasty additives is going to damage your hair each and every time. This will make sure you're using only good products on your hair, leaving your hair clean and smooth and us better for your scalp too. 

Minimise The Amount Of Heat You Use
To be honest, at the moment, why are you straightening your hair? There really is no need and so no is the time to give your hair that much needed rest from heat, too many products, and anything that can dry it out. 

Whether you use curlers or straighteners, that heat can cause a lot of damage. Consider every now and then finding ways to style your natural hair, so your not using heat every time you wash it. And when it comes to using your hairdryer, you should use it on the lowest possible setting to make sure it doesn't damage too much.

  1. My friend washes her hair every day and can't understand why I don't so I'm glad to see it confirmed that you should only wash your hair once or twice a week- as I do.

  10. I've started again from scratch after losing it all with chemo. When it came back, I celebrated with deep, vibrant blues, purples and pinks.
    Then I lost it again, and it's come back curly!
    No chance of a cut now, so embracing what will be

  11. My hair takes some looking after as it's long and thick but only wash it twice a week and try to dry it naturally as the hairdryer makes it to frizzy

  12. After I wash my hair I let it dry naturally as not going anywhere since lockdown and been using less styling products. I use a hair mask once a week to help boost shine and smoothness

  20. I had chemo last year and my hair has just about reached a length I can style - however it's so straggly around the neck and ears. It needs shaping - can't wait for the hairdressers to open again.
