Say Hello To Smooth And Soft Hair With These Tips
Ever felt jealous upon seeing someone with hair that is smooth, silky and shiny? No worries, you’re not alone. You can spot healthy hair from a distance with a few signs: free of tangles, no frizziness, and luscious. Well, the good news is that no one is born with silky hair, which means that it’s all down to hard work and a little patience. If you’re using harsh hair products that are unsuitable, this is the time to toss them out into the trash.
While we mention the common causes of dry hair, what are the ways to prevent it and achieve smoother hair? We listed the factors below.
Don’t Sleep on Cotton Pillowcases
Yes, our sleep routine does contribute to the health of our hair. While cotton pillowcases tend to be the most customarily used by all of us, cotton can absorb the moisture from our hair, resulting in tangles and brittle strands. As an alternative, go for silk pillowcases, which are much gentler and maintain the oils on your hair that keeps it well-nourished. Other benefits can include preserving hairstyles and blowouts.
Avoid Excessive Shampooing
When it comes to shampooing, there’s really no correct answer and everyone’s recommendations will be different. The reason is due to everyone’s hair varying from each other. No one person is the same, and this goes for the hair as well. As such, it’s pretty much trial and error to get to know your hair’s characteristics. Some may benefit from washing their hair daily, while others prefer shampooing their hair once every two to three days. Regardless of the hair routine, if you find your scalp overly oily and the hair looks greasy, that’s the sign that you should head into the shower.
Wash the Right Way
Believe it or not, there’s a right way to shampoo our hair without causing damage. First, you’ll want to avoid wetting the hair with hot water. Hot water dries the hair out, increasing the risk for frizziness and split ends. Instead, wash with lukewarm or cold water. Second, be mindful of not being too abrasive while you scrub. Last but not least, try applying the shampoo only on the scalp. As you rinse it off, the soap and water will drip down to the ends of your hair. This is a much gentler method to get the ends clean without causing breakage and brittle strands.
While many people may think that serums are not a necessity, that should not be the case. Serums should be incorporated into a hair routine as it locks in moisture at the end and provide a protective barrier for the hair against damage, pollution and even the sun’s harmful rays. Our Simply Stylin’ Silk Serum is made from the highest quality pure silicones, ensuring that it lasts throughout the day, as well as works to control frizziness and improve the smoothness of the hair.
Apply Anti-Frizz Spray
Likewise, apply an anti-frizz spray for a quick fix. As it can be applied on both wet and dry hair, it’s advisable to have an anti-frizz spray handy in order to eliminate any signs of frizziness. If you suffer from dry hair, you can even reapply throughout the day to maintain smoothness and shininess. What’s great about our Simply Stylin’ Light Silk Spray is that it can be used for wigs and extensions.
