HOW TO TAKE BETTER CARE OF YOUR HAIR AFTER A HAIR WASH


 

So you have bought the right shampoo and followed the instructions for a good hair wash. But your hair still seems to lack glow? This is probably because you haven’t followed the steps right after. For instance, general sense suggests you should let your hair air dry after a wash, however if you do not detangle it first it may lead to the hair being frizzy and messy when dry. To avoid such hair mistakes here are 5 quick tips to ensure you follow the right after wash care for your hair!

    After a wash, it seems like a good idea to rub your hair dry to remove excess water, or even wrap a towel around your hair and rest it on top of your head. But this isn't good! Instead gently dab your hair and loosely wrap the towel around your loose hair and let it hang for a few minutes to remove the excess water.

    Apply a leave in conditioner or a light serum to retain moisture in your hair after a wash. This will also help you detangle your hair easily, especially if it is long.

    Use a wide-toothed comb and run it through your wet hair to remove tangles. And unlike how you normally comb your hair from top to bottom, start in reverse. This way you will tackle your knots more easily, and will avoid making your hair more tangled.

    While styling your hair, ensure that you apply a heat protecting serum before you use a blow dryer or curling/straightening iron. This will help you retain the moisture while also giving you the style you want.

    Do not tie your hair when its wet, as wet hair is very fragile and breaks easily. If you can’t leave it down, use a scarf or covered snag-free elastic bands to tie it loosely. With these tips your hair will look good after every wash and add that extra brightness to your personality!
