Ask any girl who takes at least an hour every morning to get dressed completely, and she would tell you about the daily woes she has to face when the hair doesn’t get to set in place.
It is often the frizz or probably the texture of the hair that prevents that perfect look in no time. Whether you simply comb it or make use of styling equipment, it is something that would result in a messy look once you are out. Frizziness also leads to breakages in the hair.
Getting bad hair days does no good as it is likely to ruin your day for the worse especially when you have a corporate meeting to be a part of or probably a special date. While there are several out there who face such serious problems, here is what you could do to get that smooth and nice hair daily.
Avoid sulfate-based shampoos
While sulfate is responsible for giving that added lather to the rinsing process of shampoo, it is something that has a bad impact on the hair once it is dry. The experts for hair treatment in Mumbai agree that the hair shaft is what gets affected first, and that is known to give that frizzy look to the hair making it impossible to brush and comb. The results are often frizzy ends that give you an untidy look.
Comb wet hair with caution
Wet hair is fragile and is more prone to breakage. Take a wide-toothed comb to detangle your hair while they are wet. Do this slowly.
Never use hot water for the hair
This is applicable mostly during the winters where the cold water being poured on the head is a dreadful experience. While some ignore the advice of not using hot water for the hair, it is something that is known to bring in long-term damage to the hair follicles. No matter what you use for the hair, it would still make the hair look frizzy and dull while taking away the natural moisture it contains.
Oiling the hair frequently
It is usually said that the hair should be oiled at least thrice a week but not always do people get the time to do so. If not thrice, try and keep it to once a week where you are to oil your hair well from top to bottom. It is known to strengthen the roots, reduce the frizz and make it smooth after you wash it. If you worry about the split ends, oiling the hair helps out for that as well.
Tip to make your own oil mixture at home: Take equal amounts of coconut oil and castor oil, you can add 1 tsp of lemon juice in this. Apply this mixture to your scalp and length for 2 hours and then wash off.
Trim your hair every 2 -3 months
Get about half an inch haircut every 2-3 months(this could vary depending on how quickly your hair grow). This is ideal to avoid the split ends from forming as they make the hair break if not cut timely as they climb higher and higher on the hair shaft.
Make use of a good conditioner
While there are multiple brands out there that have conditioners, it takes a while to know which would suit your hair. Conditioners are known to make the hair feel smooth, and that is why there is the need to choose something that is just right and keeps your hair feeling good right from the time you step out for the day.
You can make your own conditioning mask at home as well :
Avocado hair mask: take half an avocado (mash it up), add 2 drops of peppermint oil, apply on your hair. Leave on for 15 minutes(wear a shower cap to avoid anything dripping on your shoulders) and rinse off
Egg & Curd hair mask: Take one egg for medium size hair (you could use more if you have longer hair ), add 1.5 spoons of curd in it, make a semi-solid kind of mixture. Apply on hair and scalp. Leave on for 30 minutes. Wear a shower cap to avoid for it to drip on your shoulders.
Avoid using hair products as much as you can
Making use of hair sprays and hair waxes are known to keep the hair in place and not give you a messy look. Ask any hair specialist in Ghatkopar and they would agree that when you use hair products, the residue stays back on the hair surface and ends up giving that bad hair. No matter how you treat it and the amount of good stuff you put in for the hair, it would still be the same.
While these are a few steps that you can take for your hair, you get to stay away from those frequent bad hair days.
