We’re often confused about our natural hair texture – is it wavy, curly, or are we doing things wrong? The answer is you’re probably not; your hair changes texture every few years, so it’s normal to feel stuck between a few types.

Usually, there are straight, wavy, or curly hair textures, with each requiring a particular protocol of love and care.

Note down your hair type as well. Does it tend to be greasy shortly after a wash, or do you find yourself scratching at your dry scalp? It’s essential to know the problem areas and how they need to be tackled.

List Your Ultimate Hair Goals

Everyone expects certain things from their new and improved hair care routine. Whether you’re someone who loves to blow dry and style their hair each day, or you simply like rocking the all-natural look, it’s crucial to establish a routine around your lifestyle choices.

Also, target a few goals, such as steering clear of silicones and parabens or including more hot oil massages. If you spend time planning out these things, it’ll help you easily curate a hair care routine.

Let’s Get to the Good Stuff

Once all your research and planning are established, it’s time to delve into a few essential hair care tips at home. You always want to start with a good cleansing shampoo. Whether your hair is dry or oily, it’s vital to rid your scalp of product buildup and sweat residue.

Although we advise all our dry hair people to stick to using the cleansing shampoo once a week or less, depending on your hair texture.

Here are a few excellent cleansing shampoos that get the job done without stripping your hair of natural oils:

Conditioner is equally vital as shampoo, and you want to target your ends with this product, avoiding contact with your roots. This product is essentially meant to nourish your dry and rough ends, and adding it too close to the top can give you a greasy scalp.

Additional Tips to Seal the Deal

Aside from the products you apply, there are a few extra hair care tips that you can follow to enhance the shine of your hair and keep it at its healthiest.

  1. Get regular trims – whether you’re growing your hair out, or want to keep it short, it’s integral to get a trim every few months.
  2. Use a wide-tooth comb – many of us are used to tugging at our hair with rigid brushes, but it’s best to use a natural wooden comb to stimulate your scalp and go easy on your hair.
  3. Seasonal switch – make sure to adjust the products you use depending on the season; for example, go heavier with the oiling sessions in the winter, or use a detoxifying shampoo in the summertime.
  4. Sleep in a braid – keep your hair out of your face and avoid any significant tangling by tying it in a loose braid before heading to sleep.
  5. Stimulate your scalp – use a massager during your shower to incorporate the product into your scalp and get your blood pumping.
  6. Detangle your hair – you must keep the knots out of your hair to prevent breakage and hair fall. Preferably comb your hair out before a shower or when your hair is damp.
  7. Dry your hair gently – don’t aggressively towel dry your hair, instead, opt for a soft cotton t-shirt or washcloth to wrap your hair in.

While establishing a suitable hair care routine can be challenging and grueling, we hope our tips and tricks resonate with your needs. Try out some of these products that might help you in the journey towards thicker, healthier hair.
