Stuck in a hair rut and don’t know what to do? No matter what your hair type, try one of these tips to see what works for you.
* Give your hair an ‘off’ day, or a few of them, every week. Let your hair have a break from any heat (i.e.: blow dryers, curling irons or flat irons) and go au natural.
* Don’t shampoo every day. Shampooing your hair daily washes away your natural oils that condition your hair. If you are feeling greasy, use a dry shampoo like Cake Beauty Satin Sugar Hair and Body Refreshing Powder. Just sprinkle the powder onto roots and massage in. This will buy you an extra day or two.
* Give your scalp a facial, just as you would scrub, moisturize and mask your face every month. Brush your scalp with a soft bristled brush to revitalize scalp, then shampoo as normal and in lieu of your normal conditioner, use a hair mask like Hamadi Shea Hair Mask which will repair and replenish strands.
* Pick a product and stick with it. Contrary to popular belief, your hair does not ‘get used to’ products. Perhaps instead, you have product build up and are in need of a clarifying treatment. Try a clarifying shampoo like Suki Clean Balance Shampoo which will effectively, yet gently cleanse product build up from your hair.
