Hair Care Tips
If you follow along here on my blog, my YouTube channel or really any of my social media pages you know that I have a passion for beauty, especially makeup & skincare. Over the past year, as I began regularly dying my hair as well as learning how to deal with wavy, curly hair that grew back after chemotherapy. Pretty much my whole life up until the last year or so, I had a very minimal hair care routine. I would utilize whatever shampoo & conditioner that was on sale and for styling I wouldn’t do much other than get trims maybe once a year. I rarely used hair dryers or heating style tools. I’d dye my hair maybe once every 10 years and it would usually be boxed color. I never saw the point until I lost my hair from chemotherapy for Stage 3 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 2019. Even though I knew I was most likely going to lost my hair when it actually started happening it broke me. I felt like a piece of me was missing so I vowed that once I was able to grow my hair back I was going to take care of it & ensure it’s looking it’s best.
I’ve learned a lot over the last year from my research, working with my hair stylist and personal experience which I share below. These are simple things that you can implement into your hair care routine for stronger, healthier hair you will love. Having a proper hair care routine & utilizing the right products is just like having a proper skincare routine with the right products for your skin.
Shampoo & Condition the Right Way
As I said earlier, I was not one who paid attention on what shampoo & conditioner I would use. The biggest change that helped with the overall health of my hair, even helping it grow back, was making sure I was cleaning it correctly as well as using the right products.
TIP #1: Do Not Wash Your Hair Everyday
Yes, remember in the old movies, girls would make a whole night of “washing their hair”. Well it looks like they were right! “According to Reese Witherspoon’s stylist, [Cervando Maldonado] the process [of washing] dries out your hair, making it hard to achieve shiny, moisturized strands. (Firman, 2018)
I’m sure you are wondering now when or how much should you wash your hair? Honestly, the least amount as possible is what I have found in my research & experience. Most professionals I’ve seen in my research recommend every 2-3 days. For me, I’ve found that in the summer time every 3 days is just right, 2 days during those crazy heat waves. In the winter time, I can get away with washing my hair every 4-5 days. I recommend doing some trial and error to figure out what works best for your hair, lifestyle & preferences.
TIP #2: Use the Right Shampoo & Conditioner
When I’m saying the right shampoo & conditioner, I’m not talking about brand here… though I will admit, some brands have better formulas than other. What I am really meaning with using the right shampoo & conditioner is using the right type of shampoo & conditioner that best meet your hair needs. I highly recommend checking out this Stylist article (2020) for tips to help you choose the best products based on your hair type from thick, coarse hair to fine hair. Using the right products is going to keep your hair healthier and looking it’s best everyday.
For those of you who color their hair, we all know that our normal shampoo & conditioner may have to be switched out so you will be able to help keep our hair color looking it’s best as long as possible. Many hair care brands provide Color Treated type of shampoos & conditioner, however, those with unique hair coloring, I highly recommend looking into using colored shampoos. According to Beauty Undercover (2018), there are 5 different colored shampoos to use based on what you color your hair:
- Purple Shampoos are perfect for blondes (natural or dyed)
- Silver Shampoos though considered to be a purple shampoo works for those with grey or silver hair.
- Blue Shampoo is great for dark hair with orange and brassy tones
- Colour-Depositing Shampoo is designed to increase the longevity of your colored hair
- Sulfate-free Shampoo especially after you color it so not to strip your hair of any essential oils.
TIP #3: Use Shampoo & Conditioner Correctly
There is a difference between what the shampoo & what the conditioner will do for your hair. Shampoo is designed to clean your roots while your conditioner is designed to smooth out and condition your hair from about mid length to tips.
To give your hair some extra love & attention, 1-2 times a month it’s good to focus on a deep condition and exfoliating your scalp. Deep conditioning is going to give your hair a thorough cleanse from your scalp all the way to your tips. Many people don’t realize but “unfortunately, regular buildup of oil, dead skin cells, and leftover product can leave your scalp overloaded and less than healthy.” (L’Oreal Paris, 2020) Many of you are probably all ready familiar with deep conditioning & probably get it done with your hair stylist. I know each time I see my hair stylist I will have her do a deep conditioning and the difference it makes is like night & day. Plus, I notice that I do not need to do my hair mask for a couple weeks.
To help with build up in between deep conditioning is exfoliating your scalp. This will help get rid of all that buildup and open up your pores allowing for hair to grow healthier and some have even said faster. Our scalp is skin too and it’s important for us to take care of it just like we take care of our skin every where else on our body. I personally use a scalp cleansing brush each time I shampoo my hair.
TIP #4: Use Dry Shampoo in Between Washes
Dry shampoo is a great way to extend your need to wash your hair. It is designed to soak up your hair’s oils and help give volume to your hair. It’s kind of like those fix a flat products for your tire losing air. It gives your hair a little extra time to get through until you can wash your hair.
They usually come in like a hair spray type of container so all you have to do is quickly spray it at the roots throughout your hair. Let it sit for a few minutes & then style as usual. Personally, I only use Dry Shampoo in the summer to help extend having to wash it with shampoo & conditioner.
Style with Minimal Damage
The way we style our hair is probably the one area that does the most damage to our hair. Think about how much damage you do between all the hot tools you use, the tight buns & ponytails you rock or even trying to brush out those tangles. They all cause damage to our locks.
So how can you style your hair with the least amount of damage as possible? Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Air dry your hair as much as possible
- Before wrapping it in a towel, squeeze out any excess water first. (Old cotton tee is best towel to use)
- Use your fingers to detangle your hair as best as possible before using a brush or comb.
- Do your best to not pull hair back too tightly and if you do so, do it as least as possible.
- Make sure to use the right brushes for your hair type & style you want to achieve
- Round brush is great for blow drying
- Wide tooth comb for wet hair
- For those with curly or wavy hair, apply style maintaining products by combing it through wet hair & then flip your hair over & scrunch your hair with your fingers (Firman, 2018)
- Keep hair protected from heat, sun, pollution & sweat w/ protectant products
- DO NOT USE STRAIGHTENER OR CURLING IRON ON WET HAIR!!!!
- Get a trim to cut off split ends every 6-8 weeks.
