We all know that the more often we wash our hair, the greasier it becomes. According to celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, we should wash our hair every 5 days to keep it normal. However, there are many tips and tricks hair stylists know which can keep your hair fresh and longer without damaging it.
Apple Shampoo Like A Pro
The water temperature you’re using when washing your hair should be comfortable – if it’s too hot, it can damage your hair. Before shampooing, wet your hair for at least a minute. Squeeze a bit of shampoo (the size of a bigger coin) and rub your palms together, then apply it on your hair, moving from the top to bottom. The rinsing is the longest part – it should take about 5 minutes to remove all shampoo residue and prevent any problems. In the end, give your hair a cold water rinse to strengthen the cuticles and keep your hair fresh.
Plan Your Hairstyle
If you want to keep your hair last fresh for longer, you need to plan your hairstyles carefully every day.
Sage Herb Tincture
There are many herb tinctures you can use to keep your hair fresh. Sage, for example, will control the work of your sebaceous glands and prevent inflammation. Add 4 tablespoons of dry sage in a liter of water, then leave the tincture to cool down and give your hair a rinse with it.
If you’re washing your hair every day, you need to stop. Over time, the function of the sebaceous glands deteriorates, so there’s no time to restore the skin balance every day.
Dry Shampoo Before Workouts
Using a dry shampoo after hitting the gym is pointless. Applying it before, however, will absorb all the sweat from the workout and keep your hair fresh.
Our pillows actually play a huge role in the greasiness of our hair. Over time, the pillowcases absorb old makeup and epidermal cells which makes them a perfect ground for bacterial development. Change them at least once a week if you want to keep your hair fresh for longer.
Squeeze a lemon in a glass of water and give your hair a rinse with this mixture to fight the greasiness and keep your hair fresh. Massage the mixture in your scalp and roots before rinsing.
A high hairstyle will help keep your hair fresh. When at home, go for a ponytail or bun. Before you go out, let your hair down. This simple trick is designed to help you add volume to your hair.
Deep Care For Your Scalp
The skin on your head requires just as much care as your hair. All the hair products you use are meant for your hair ends except head skin masks. They can be used with a deep peeling to hydrate your hair and keep it fresh. It’s best to apply the mask where your hair parts.
Bonus: Hair Health Test
There’s a simple way of testing if your hair is healthy or not. Pull a single hair strand from your head and put it in a glass of water – if the hair floats, you’re good to go. If it sinks, however, your hair is in dire need of treatment.
