10 TIPS FOR HEALTHY HAIR *WINTER EDITION*


Winter in UK seems to be going nowhere. Rain, wind and just cold in general has made us all moody, tired and uninspired. I am a bit of a freak when it comes to hair care so I thought I'd share some of the tips I know to keep your hair in top conditions for the last few weeks of winter (I hope). What better way of entering spring than looking your best head to toe?

Here we go:
  1. Invest in a good shampoo and conditioner that will moisturise and nourish your hair. I know this doesn't sound like a lot but trust me, the amount of times I've seen people buying the most ridiculous and wrong products for their hair-type can't be counted on 2 hands! Get to know your body THEN buy things that work well for it. 
  2. Use a hair mask once a week. (L'oreal makes some great ones)
  3. If you're prone to a dry scalp, use some oil just before getting in the shower (Some examples would be: Argan oil, coconut oil, grape-seed oil, pomegranate seed oil, tea tree oil) and avoid washing your hair for more than 10 minutes. Be quick so you don't strip away all the natural oils and make your hair weak and scalp even dryer. 
  4.  Use hot oil treatment once or twice a week. I usually apply it before using shampoo.
  5.  Massage your scalp , it helps keep hair and scalp healthy.
  6.  Wear beanies and hats (it's not only fashionable but also protects the scalp from dryness), plus you can get away with not washing your hair for an extra day or two.
  7.  Don’t leave your house with wet hair! ( you could get sick but also makes your hair prone to breakage and damage).
  8.  Don’t comb or over-bursh too much and if you really can't stand a little bit more of a grungy look then use a wide tooth brush with preferably natural bristles.
  9.  Avoid excessively hot water at the end of your wash session.
  10. Avoid styling your hair too often. Give it a break, ladies. I am sure you look just fine with your natural hair. No need to use hot tools, mousses and load loads of crap on your head.

BE CAREFUL - Don't overload your hair with endless amounts of product. A little goes a long way and there is no need to mix 200 products at once. The list I gave above is a guideline. You have to try and see what works best for you and what you prefer. 

What are your favourite hair products?

    2. Hot Oil was the best decision of my hair life so far, thank you for the idea ! I used my hair oil which is usually too greasy on dry hair and it worked amazingly, hair is so soft now :)

  2. I'm really loving KMS California products, especially their de-tangler. The products are a bit on the pricey side, but they work so well!

  4. I agree with a lot of this but I have to say I suggest using sulfate free shampoos. I've been using sulfate free shampoos for years and I'll never go back!
