Can you imagine the disappointment?
We wash, condition, brush and dry Matilda’s hair before bed (she’s 7) yet the moment she wakes up it’s ‘POOF’! A tangled stress-bomb!
She takes after me!
I’ve battled with my hair for nearly 4 decades! And I mean literally battled!!! LOL
And I bet you face a similar never-ending dilemma trying to find the right hair products for YOUR hair?!
Some claim to give you the BEST volume but leave you with limp, greasy hair.
Some claim to instantly smooth and straighten but 5 minutes later the straighteners are plugged in and ready to scorch your locks!
BUT! Luckily there are a variety of new hair masks, serums, creams, mousses and sprays that can really help.
So, here are our top tips to help you master your hair!
Know What’s In It!
Before you head to the till, make sure whichever hair product you're planning on purchasing has a list of that suit hair type!
Some products will contain silicones which will cause oily hair to look EXTRA greasy. And avoid the crunchy and stiff hair sprays and mousses that only leaves your hair dehydrated after a long day.
Little Goes a Long Way
It's easy to go overboard and weigh down your hair.
Whether you're styling your hair or using a shampoo and conditioner, use just a little bit of product at a time and you’ll soon notice a change in the appearance of your hair.
If you've already used a hydrating conditioner, skip out on using a serum and let your natural oil add shine to your hair. Especially if you're planning on a volumizing hairstyle, using a serum, mousse and a hairspray might end up leaving your hair limp by the end of the day.
Look for fine mist hairsprays that won't leave your hair stiff. Weightless formulas are ideal to make your hair look fuller for a featherweight hold.
Protect Against Heat
Whether you're using a hot styling tool or planning on spending the entire day out by the beach, it's important to protect your hair from UV and heat damage.
Blow drying and straightening your hair removes the cuticle's surface moisture which causes breakage and split ends. To keep your hair healthy and free from fried ends, opt for heat protectant products.
Heat styling thermal protectants coat the hair follicle to keep the strands away from damage while leaving it with a smooth and soft shine. This can also be used for protection against UV damage which essentially dehydrates strands.
And remember, a good hair day can really help bring out your confidence – I know it does for me!
So spend a little time checking your hair care routine and look out for our new shampoo and conditioner; coming soon!
