Maintaining healthy hair requires an effective hair care routine. This means shampooing, conditioning, and combing regularly. It is also important to choose the right products for your hair type. For example, if you have oily hair, you will want to use a clarifying shampoo to remove build-up. If you have dry hair, you will want to use a deep conditioner to add moisture. In addition, regular trims are important to get rid of split ends and promote healthy growth. By following these simple tips, you can maintain healthy, beautiful hair easily.
How to pick the right products for your hair
A healthy hair routine is essential for maintaining shining, lustrous locks. But with so many different products on the market, it can be difficult to know which ones are right for you. Here are a few tips to help you pick the best ingredients for your hair:
1. Start by identifying your scalp type.This will narrow down the range of products that will be most effective for you.
You can take a Tissue Paper Test: A full day AFTER your last shampooing, take a piece of tissue paper and dab, don’t press, it against the top of your head and behind your ears. If parts of the paper become almost translucent, you have oily hair. If tissue paper looks dry after this test, your hair is of dry type. If it doesn’t become translucent and is not completely dry, you have a normal scalp type.
2. Take a Free Hair Analysis to identify the right ingredients for your hair. Take one which is developed by hair experts or doctors as it is more authentic and will give you a better understanding of what is best for your hair and scalp.
You can consider, Tru Hair’s Free 3 Factor Hair Analysis as well, which is developed by expert Ayurvedic Doctors and suggests you products based on the ingredients that will
best suit your hair and scalp needs.
3. Pay attention to the labels. Look for keywords like “volumizing,” “moisturizing,” or “strengthening.”Based on your goal, decide what is required.
4. Avoid products that contain harmful chemicals like sulphates. These can strip away natural oils and leave your hair feeling dry and brittle.
Now when you know the right products for your hair, it is essential to make sure that you are using it the right way. A proper hair care routine is very important to maintain healthy hair.
Step 1- Start with hot oil treatment
Here are a few essential oils, that you need to include in your hair routine for healthy hair.
A good hair care routine is important for achieving and maintaining healthy hair. One of the best ways to care for your hair is to apply hot oil treatments on a regular basis. Hot oil massage is an age-old traditional method to get 2X benefits of the ingredients in your hair oil. It helps to nourish and moisturize the scalp and hair shaft, resulting in healthy, shiny hair. In addition, hot oil treatments can help to improve blood circulation to the scalp, which promotes hair growth. If you are looking for an effective way to care for your hair, a hot oil treatment is a good option to consider.
Heating hair oil on stove can be a cumbersome process, so Tru Hair has come up with a Oil Heater that helps you heat up your hair oil to the optimum temperature of around 65 degrees in about 4 minutes. It comes with an auto cut-off technology so you don’t have to worry about overheating the oil and destroying the benefits of the ingredients.
Ideally it is suggested that you keep the ayurvedic hair oil overnight and wash it off in the morning, but in case you have oily scalp or it keeping the oil overnight doesn’t suit you or is not convenient for you, then try keeping it for 1-2 hours minimum before washing it off, to let your scalp soak in the goodness of the ingredients.
Step 2- Use a sulphate-free shampoo & conditioner
We know that a good hair care routine is important for keeping your hair healthy and looking its best. One of the most important aspects of a proper hair care routine is using sulphate free shampoo and conditioner. Sulphates are harsh chemicals that can strip away natural oils and damage the hair shaft. This can lead to dry, brittle hair that is more prone to breakage. Sulphate free shampoo and conditioner are gentler on the hair, helping to preserve its natural moisture balance. In addition, sulphate free products are often enriched with beneficial ingredients like vitamins and antioxidants that can help to nourish and protect the hair. As a result, sulphate free shampoo and conditioner are an essential part of any hair care routine.
Tru Hair shampoos & conditioners are free from harmful chemicals like parabens and sulphates, so you can check it out.
Step 3- Don’t comb on wet hair
Another mistake that I have seen people make is, combing on wet hair. It causes hair to break very easily. With that said, try using a neem wooden comb as it reduces friction which leads to hair breakage. Also, it has antibacterial properties which helps you keep your scalp health in check.
Step 4- Apply Scalp Serum
For those facing hair fall or aiming for thicker, voluminous hair a scalp growth serum works the best. Tru Hair has this amazing protein scalp serum which promotes hair growth. It is to be applied after your air-drying your hair post shampooing. Such serums help you reach your hair goal kind of faster because it stays on your scalp for long, letting it soak in the goodness of ingredients.
This is a basic hair care routine that you can consider. Apart from this, here are a few general tips that you can follow:
- If not once a week, apply hair masks once every 2 weeks to give your hair deep conditioning. Because of increasing impurity in the air, it is important to give your hair some extra care.
- Using heat protectant is very important whenever you use heat styling tools. Excess heat can cause irreparable damage to your hair in the long run.
- Indulging in de-stress/stress management activities is very important as stress is the main culprit of not just hair problems like hair fall, but also health issues like diabetes.
Special care for coloured hair
Coloured hair requires a good hair care routine to maintain its vibrancy and prevent damage.
While all hair types require good care in order to stay healthy and look their best, colored hair often needs a little extra attention. The chemicals used to change the color of your hair can actually cause damage, making it more susceptible to breakage and dryness. As a result, it’s important to follow a good hair care routine if you want to keep your colored hair looking its best.
One of the most important steps in taking care of colored hair is using a shampoo and conditioner that are specifically designed for colored hair. These products can help to protect your hair from the damage caused by the colouring process. In addition, you should make sure to use a deep conditioner at least once a week to keep your hair hydrated and looking its best.
Here’s a 3-step easy routine that you can follow if you have coloured hair:
- Use a clarifying shampoo to remove build-up,
- Use a deep conditioner to hydrate and repair damage,
- Use a leave-in conditioner to protect the hair from heat styling.
In addition, it is important to use a heat protectant before using any hot styling tools, and to avoid over-washing your hair.
Common mistakes to avoid in your hair care routine
- Shampooing too often,
- Using hot water when washing,
- Brushing wet hair, rubbing wet hair with a towel,
- Using heat-styling tools too often, and not getting regular trims.
- Avoid eating junk food, or food that contains a lot of sugar.
- Avoid carbonated drinks and alcohol,
- Quit smoking if you do.
Shampooing too frequently can strip away natural oils that keep hair healthy, while hot water can cause dehydration and breakage. When brushing wet hair, be gentle to avoid damaging delicate strands. Instead of rubbing wet hair with a towel, blot it gently to absorb moisture. And finally, don’t forget to get regular trims to keep your hair looking its best.
By avoiding these common mistakes, you can have the healthy, beautiful hair you’ve always wanted.
Apart from these, you can follow the general tips mentioned above. By following these simple tips, you can keep your coloured hair healthy and looking its best. Just make sure, you avoid chemical-loaded products and go with natural products which are free from harmful chemicals.
