All you need to know about protecting your hair!

By Hand On The Hip - 6/10/2016

Hi guys!

Over the years, I have realized how important it is to take care of your hair. The pollution and the harshness of the water had completely damaged my hair. I started experimenting with some products and I must say, it has really helped me with hair and scalp nourishment.

My hair is usually very oily at the scalp and frizzy at the bottom. So it's kind of difficult to find products that suit my hair. However I have listed a few things here that might be useful for people who have hair like mine.

My shampoos and conditioners
I have been very faithful to TRESemme for two years now and I really like the way it fluffs up my hair and gives it that extra shine. I also use TRESemme conditioner and it gives me that smooth finish. What I use is TRESemme Platinum Strength Shampoo and Conditioner and TRESemme Hair Fall Control.

On days I feel like using a mild shampoo, I use Revlon Flex. It does not give you any kind of shine or bounce, but it definitely cleanses your scalp and is the best thing you can use if you wash your hair daily.

My oils
I am completely disgusted by even the smell of oil and have never believed in using any until I was introduced to Agran Oil. I apply a bit of this to my hair every morning and it doesn't make my hair sticky at all. I could not find Moroccan Oil (recommended by a friend, you will see it in the next section), but I came across this product, Argan Oil of Morocco and I simply love it.

My best friend's stash
Last week my bestie wanted me to use her hair products and my hair looked better than ever! The shampoo she uses, SP Hydrate by Wella Professional is mostly for dry, normal and damaged hair. The hair mask she uses, Bonacure by Schwarzkopf Professional makes your hair healthy. Finally, a tinge of Moroccan Oil to complete the procedure and you're all set!

My heating products
Even though I try my best to avoid using heating products, on days my hair is really misbehaving I don't have a choice. I use a very mild straightener which is the Philips HP8319 Essential Care Hair Straightener and I also use Philips Kerashine HP8659 Air Styler which blow dries and brushes my hair at the same time.

My hair color
I like constant change when it comes to the way my hair looks and feels. Since no other color is usually visible on my hair, I decided to try Revlon Color N Care and Revlon Color Silk. The color I chose is Burgundy. Not only did the color make heads turn, but it also gave my hair some extra shine.

Some hair-care tips 
  • Do not wash your hair too regularly! Try and maintain a gap of at least 2-3 days. If you think you really need to wash it everyday, use a very mild shampoo or natural products like shikakai.
  • Do not comb your hair while it's wet. This causes your hair to get frizzy when it's all dry.
  • Try avoiding heating products like straighteners and blow driers. Use them only when it's absolutely necessary.
  • Oil your hair 30-45 minutes before you wash your hair. It strengthens your hair and reduces hair fall.
  • Avoid coloring your hair as much as possible. Even if you do, use the right hair products and take care of your hair.
  • Use natural hair masks like egg, curd, lemon, henna etc. instead of hair serums and sprays.
