Hydrated hair is healthier, stronger, and glossier. In short, it looks and feels better, inspiring confidence in yourself and preparing you for any challenge. However, hydrating your hair isn’t as simple as chucking water on it or taking another shower.
Fortunately, we’re here to help you.
Choose The Right Product
The right product will be different for everyone. It’s important that you pick a recognized range of products, such as the Olaplex shampoo and conditioner range, and then test the various products to find the one that you like the most.
High-quality products are natural and will concentrate on removing grease and debris from your hair while maintaining the oil that coats and protects your hair. It is this oil that locks the moisture into each strand of hair and ensures they are properly hydrated.
These products don’t use harsh chemicals that strip the goodness from your hair and leave it feeling dry and brittle.
Skip A Wash
It may sound surprising when you want your hair to be hydrated but washing it every day won’t help you to achieve this goal. When you wash it every day you are more likely to remove the oil that protects the hair. This will prevent it from retaining moisture and dry your hair out more, despite having been stood in a shower for ten minutes!
Consider Hair Treatments
Your hairdresser knows which treatments are beneficial for your hair and which aren’t. This is part of the reason your hair always feels so good after your appointment. However, using the hot tools at home to mimic the style and even dying your hair can strip it off the moisture it needs. This makes it less hydrated and more prone to breakage.
Avoid the hot tools for at least one day a week and try to turn the heat down on them when you do use them.
You really are what you eat. Hair is made of protein and your body gets this from the food you eat. By choosing to eat a balanced diet you’ll be helping to ensure your body, and your hair has all the nutrients it needs to be fully hydrated and healthy.
It is easier than you think to eat a balanced diet and it won’t just help keep your hair hydrated. It will also boost your energy levels and fitness levels
You may think you brush your hair from the roots to the tip. However, this is actually incorrect. You should start at the tips and brush small sections of your hair, moving slowly up to the roots but always keeping a hand above the brush. This prevents any pulling on the hair which can damage the roots, preventing them from being able to absorb or retain water.
The perfect way to look after your hair is different for everyone. But, the basics are the same, you need to find the right product and follow the techniques above. It will hydrate your hair and leave you looking and feeling great.
