If you were to believe everything that advertisements say these days regarding hair care tips, then you’d end up brushing your hair 100 times a day and applying all the kitchen ingredients you have on your head. Thankfully, DIY scalp care is not that tough and time-consuming. All you really need to do is find the right tips that suit your hair type perfectly. Guess what? Today is your lucky day because we are here to share some really easy hair care tips that are meant for everyone - and no that doesn’t involve brushing your hair 100 times a day!
Regular dye jobs, perming, heat, and pollution can severely damage your hair. Lucky for us, small and simple changes can still redeem what is wrecked. When it comes to hair care, one needs to know what they are putting in their body and on their hair. Having more protein and vitamins in the diet is a long-term solution to most hair problems.
Using the right shampoos, oils, and appliances are equally important. Talking about appliances, if you are still using your regular straighteners instead of Philips ThermoProtect Straightener, then you are doing a major injustice to your hair. This single appliance can solve all your hairstyling woes without damaging your hair, all thanks to the thermo-protect technology that minimises the heat damage.
Enough of the talk ladies, now let’s decode all the tips that can truly transform your hair in a jiffy!
Ladies, not even god can save you if you are not oiling your hair enough. No matter what those ads say, oiling IS important. Oil nourishes your hair, provides your scalp with all the essential nutrients it needs, and seals the cuticles with moisture. In short, they are an elixir to your hair. Next time, when you allot your weekends to an intensive skincare routine, do not forget about your scalp care either.
And now comes the tricky part - oiling is incomplete if you don’t massage your scalp properly. When you leisurely massage your scalp, you are helping better blood circulation in your head that ultimately results in healthier hair growth. Divide your hair into different sections (either sides or top, middle, and bottom) and take your time while devouring your scalp with all the love it needs.
Perming and straightening are all fun and can make us Instagram-ready within seconds, but we pay for it later with split ends, breakage, and fried-looking hair. Well, let’s make it easier for you. Yes, you have a price to pay if you want to style your hair but that is only Rs. 3,695 (that too one time). And the best part? It’s damage free! We are talking about Philips ThermoProtect Straightener that comes with SilkPro Care and ionic conditioning technology that distributes the heat evenly and retains the natural glossiness of your hair. As a result, your hair neither gets damaged nor looks dull and lifeless.
Always be very careful of the tools you use on your hair. Just like choosing a wrong makeup brush can cause breakouts, choosing a wrong straightener can cause irreparable damage to your hair!
It’s so frustrating when we are asked to choose our hair types on social media surveys because honestly, our hair type is a whole mood in itself. You can have oily roots and dry ends while the mid-length is totally frizzy. In such situations, the best thing to do is to opt for multi-masking. Instead of using a single mask all over your hair, use different masks for different regions. Apply a mask that has acidic pH for the oily region and use a hydrating mask for the regions that are dry and flaky.
Depending on the length of your hair, choosing to shampoo and condition your hair can be tough sometimes. But, is anything really easy in today’s time? We doubt. Adding a little more to the trouble (totally worth it though), is the small tip to pre-poo your hair. Before you shampoo, prep your hair and pamper it with everything good. You can choose single ingredients like shea butter, honey, or aloe vera gel, or make your pre-poo mask (glycerin with aloe vera or yogurt with honey). Remember to check the pH of the mask and your hair type before us!
Like we said, little changes can go a long way when it comes to your hair. Next time when you choose your shampoo or conditioner, make sure that they don’t have toxic ingredients like sulfate, parabens, triclosan, and polyethylene glycol. Also, does your shampoo smell amazing? If yes, then you immediately need to watch out if it's due to natural ingredients or chemicals. The former option is fine but the latter is BAD news!
There are plenty of hair creams and serums in the market to provide an extra layer of protection to your hair before styling. However, you can also use these products for hair care. For example, hair serums with argan oil as their active ingredient will protect your hair from heat and also provide nourishment to your hair.
Most of the straighteners tend to strip off the natural oil and moisture from your hair with excessive heat. Philips ThermoProtect Straightener is specially designed with six different LED temperature settings that allow you to decide your preferred temperature, depending on the style you are going for. Also, the keratin ceramic coated plates reduce the chances of friction by gliding super smoothly aka no breakage!
So, with Philips ThermoProtect Straightener (that’s available on Amazon), you can opt for any hair serum or cream you like as the straightener does most of the job of protecting your hair from damage on its own.
