We know that a good hot shower can feel great after a long day at work but the truth is, hot water can actually damage hair (and your scalp!) more than you know it.
Hot water can greatly reduce the volume and lustre in your hair so, if you still want to take a hot shower, why not rinse your hair in cold water over the sink instead?
They Wash Their Hair Thoroughly
The logic here is simple, the more hair product you use, the more you should be washing your hair.
Product build up can clog pores on the scalp and cause it to go oily or worst, smell bad.
Despite how some trichologists say that washing your hair too much could wash off the scalp’s naturally occurring oils, everyone’s hair is different and you really should be listening if your hair starts to feel greasy.
Living in humid and hot Singapore, it’s hard to go a day without washing your hair!
They Eat Well
Diet is pivotal when it comes to achieving great hair and skin.
Protect your hair with protein and iron heavy foods like eggs, chicken and spinach. Don’t forget to add vitamin c (bluberries are a great source!) so that hair absorbs iron better.
They Trim Their Hair Frequently
When you’re trying to grow your hair out, trimming it might seem odd but as it turns out, split ends that develop as a result of stress or constant heat treatments, can stunt the growth of your hair.
Make sure to trim hair at least once every two months and act on split ends when you spot them.
They Avoid Too Much Heat Treatment
As mentioned earlier, heat treatments like curling and straightening hair can cause it to stress, leaving you with split ends. Always remember to use heat protective sprays if you really have to style your hair.
They Condition Generously
Whether it’s the wash-off type or the leave-in ones, women with great hair always look for ways to nourish hair and keep it soft.
