Tips for Healthier Hair

3 January 2017

For a couple of months, back in 2016 (near the end of the year), I went through a period where I wasn't all that happy with the condition and appearance of my hair. I didn't really understand why, all of a sudden, I felt so negatively about it.

After trying a few things that were kind of helping the situation, but not enough, I decided to have a quick trim at the hairdressers. This did help my issue massively, because I'd had it thinned out so it wasn't as frustrating to style. However, I did need to find some way of maintaining nice hair after washes, that didn't involve going to the hairdressers all the time.

I used to have very quick showers, following a very basic shampoo-conditioner-rinse routine. Then I'd either run the hairdryer through my hair, or just let it dry naturally. This meant my hair always looked very dull and frizzy the next day.

Recently, though, I've tried different things, which have really improved both the condition and appearance of my hair, which I thought might be quite beneficial to some of you. In no particular order, here are some of the things I now do to get nicer, healthier hair!

When in the shower, I now do two shampoo rinses instead of one. I'm not sure how much this helps, but I do it all the same. When it comes to conditioner, I've started to leave it in for about 3 minutes before rinsing it out. Most of he time, I'll use the TRESemm√© shampoo and conditioner.  Then, I use a comb to brush out the conditioner once I start rinsing. I can actually feel the difference in my hair when I get out of the shower.

For Christmas, I got a new hairdryer, in the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth set. This is the best one I've ever used due to the quality and the fact that it has a nozzle, which is a really good thing to user shiny hair. The set includes the hairdryer, a heat protection spray and a thermal, round brush.

Finally, I spray some of the Wella Sugar Mist onto my hair and brush it through, before towelling my hair dry and then applying some heat spray. I use the thermal brush and a paddle brush to dry my hair, directing the dryer downwards, before using the cool setting to finish. Lastly, I straighten my hair.

It does sound like a process, but honestly, it has worked a treat for me so far. This isn't to say that it will do the same for everyone, however this is what has worked for me so far.
