Healthy Hair: Here’s The Ultimate Hair Guide
What does having healthy hair look like for you? Less frizz? More volume? No oily scalp? Dandruff-free hair? All of us have different hair goals we wish to accomplish. Even though all of these might seem like different end results, in reality, it's the outcome of only one factor - a healthy hair care routine. It all boils down to what we should and shouldn’t be doing for our hair. We’ve saved you the trouble of tons of research and listed out in depth, all you gotta do to save and restore your lovely locks. Let’s get going.
1. Regularly oil your hair
The simplest way to achieve hydrated and softer hair is by being consistent with hair oiling. The emollients in hair oils deeply condition your scalp and hair shaft to prevent loss of moisture. It also strengthens the barrier function which helps reduce breakage and split ends. Our Onion, Black Seed Oil & Patchouli Hairfall Control Hair Oil is brimming with the goodness of anti-hair fall, nourishing ingredients that offer protection and care.
2. Never skip conditioner
Shampoos and conditioners have two very definite and distinctive jobs. While shampoo cleanses and refreshes the scalp, the conditioner's role is to restore the lost moisture and soften your hair. Skipping on applying conditioner will make your hair frizzy, brittle and just lacklustre. If you have thin, straight hair try our Coconut Water & Mimosa Flower Paraben Free Volume and Bounty Conditioner.
It gives your hair the required nourishment without weighing them down. Make those hair flips, even more legendary! For the wavy, curly gurlies out there, pick our Rice Water & Angelica Seed Oil Silicone Free Conditioner For Curly & Wavy Hair for some deep conditioning and defined curls!
3. Indulge in a scalp scrub
Sweat, buildup and dirt causing your scalp to itch? Or is your hair looking rather limp lately? It’s time to shake things up with a scalp scrub. This intensive cleansing treatment is perfect for lifting all the baddies and gunk from your scalp for an instant refresh. Our Tea Tree Oil & Peppermint Scalp Scrub is made with super fine walnut shell powder along with tea tree oil that purifies and detoxifies that scalp.
4.Hair mask to the rescue
Give your hair an at-home spa indulgence with a thick, nourishing hair mask. Make it a must in your hair care routine and all your prayers for nourished hair will be answered! You think we’re hyping it up? Get your proof with our Argan Oil & Lavender, Paraben Free Smooth & Serene Hair Mask. This cult favorite 2-minute hair mask will give you 2x the smoothness and frizz-free hair that’ll have you hooked!
6. Be careful not to over-wash
There is no real need to wash your hair every single day. It will only strip away the natural oils that your scalp produces, making your hair quite dull, dehydrated and lifeless. Consider washing your hair every third day rather than every day or every alternate day. Along with this, also ensure that you’re using either cold or lukewarm water to avoid dryness.
7. Say no to harsh surfactants
You do not need to use a shampoo laden with surfactants to get a squeaky-clean wash. Sulfates and parabens can steal your hair’s shine and are a major threat to the overall scalp and hair health. All our shampoos are vegan, sulfate and paraben-free. There’s everything for each hair type - curly, straight, colored and more!
8. Be mindful of heat styling
The feeling of a freshly styled head of hair is unmatched, we agree! But, at what cost? Get those perfectly bouncy curls or slick hairdo, without frying out your hair. Our Argan Oil & Lavender Hair Serum for Frizz free hair offers up to 230 degrees of heat protection. Even then, try to limit heat styling with heatless styling options. You can also opt for air drying instead of blow drying your wet hair.
