Whether it’s winter, fall, spring or summer, a daily hair care routine suited for your hair type is a must. Regardless if your hair is thick, fine, dry, or normal, we have created some helpful hair care tips and natural hair products to keep your locks looking soft, silky, and healthy. Read on to learn the best hair care routine for your hair type.
Wash your hair less often. A lot of people think their hair needs to be washed daily, which is a big fat myth. Truthfully, almost all hair types can easily go a few days between washes. If you over-do washing, it can make your hair prone to breakage and strips it of its natural oils, which is what you want to avoid.
Depending on your hair type, you want to wash it only as needed, not out of habit. While this is not an exact science, here are a few pointers:
Choose products for your hair type. Not all shampoos and conditioners are created equally nor are they all suitable for every hair type. Be sure to choose formulations intended for your specific hair needs.
Detangle your hair. Avoid running a brush through your hair immediately after you shower to remove snarls, which can lead to breakage. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb starting at the ends and working toward the roots to remove tangles. For stubborn snarls or curly hair, use a natural detangling product before combing to avoid breakage.
Turn down the heat. Of course, it is best to allow your hair to air dry, but that’s not always practical in the morning. If you must use a blow dryer, put it on a cooler setting to cut down on frizz, plus it makes your hair look healthy and shiny.
Psst–ever wonder what that “cool shot” button is on your blow dryer? Use it when your hair has been about 80% dried to seal the hair cuticle and set your hair. Cool, huh? (Pun intended.)
Protect your hair. Using styling tools on a regular basis can really do a number on hair, which is why you should always apply a heat protectant before blow drying, curling, or straightening your hair.
Deep condition regularly. If you color, tease, blow dry, or routinely style your hair, chances are your hair is a little stressed. Hot oil treatments and hair masques are a great way to reverse the damage from everything you put it through. With regular treatments, it hydrates your hair, promotes faster growth, and makes your hair more manageable. All of our conditioners are excellent hair masques. The Lazarus Natural Treatment Serum is a deep-conditioning oil treatment for hair moisture and scalp health.
You can use the Treatment Serum, which contains a natural blend of essential oils and plant extracts, to strengthen hair. Warm 2 - 3 tablespoons of the serum and apply to hair and scalp. Cover with a shower cap and leave on for about 60 minutes or overnight. Then, shampoo and condition your hair as usual with lukewarm water for an extra moisture boost and happy hair.
You can warm the serum in the microwave, but don’t make the oil so warm that it burns your scalp.
