We think it’s fair to say that a lot of women have at least one gripe with their hair, and one of the most common things that they’d like to improve is the length and thickness of their hair. Growing your hair can seem like it takes forever, and making it thicker may seem like witchcraft itself, but we’ve got five key tips that you can follow to help to improve the overall look of your hair:
Don’t Neglect Your Trims
One of the first mistakes that people make when trying to grow their hair is neglecting the trims, and while cutting your hair off may seem counterintuitive, it’s actually really important. The ends of your hairs are the bits that sustain the most damage over time, so trimming them off which make your hair look thicker and healthier, giving you a more lustrous look overall.
Choose Your Products Wisely
Cheap shampoos use cheap ingredients which will strip moisture from your hair, leaving it dried out and lifeless. Opting or a shampoo which is made from high-quality ingredients, like Dermalogica Daily Cleansing Shampoo, will ensure that your hair is only treated to the finest essential oils and vitamins, helping to improve and protect your hair.
Just as your skin needs to be moisturised, so does your hair to maintain a healthy mane. Heated appliances like hairdryers, straighteners and curling wands all dry the hair out, stripping away essential moisture from the follicles, so it’s important to replenish that moisture with a good conditioning wash like Dermalogica Daily Conditioning Rinse.
We know it’s not possible to leave your hair wet every time you wash it, but letting your hair air dry at least once a week can give your hair a much needed break from heat styling. If you don’t like having your wet hair on your shoulders, practice a messy bun using a fabric scrunchie which won’t damage your hair!
Your Scalp Matters Too
It’s easy to forget that your scalp needs TLC too as that’s where your hair follicles live. Treat yourself to a treatment using Decleor Aroma Nutrition- Satin Softening Dry Oil once a week to replenish your scalp with the natural oils it needs to promote healthy hair growth. Your scalp will thank you and your hair will feel softer and smoother, too.
