The hustle and bustle of our daily lives can have a massive impact on our hair. We style and subject our mane to the elements every single day, so it’s no wonder that our locks lose their natural bounce and sheen after some time. The good news is there are many ways you can revitalize your hair and get it looking soft and healthy. Here are the top hair renewal remedies you should try for your hair.
Never underestimate the power of a good trim. Because of all the stress our hair goes through each day, our strands are highly prone to breakage and split ends. That’s why getting a regular trim is crucial to maintaining the health and beauty of your hair.
Now, you can head to your salon to get a trim. But you can also do it at home. Purchase a pair of hair cutting scissors and keep them stored until you need to get a trim. When the time for your regular trim comes, cut half an inch off the bottom of your locks. By doing so, you can prevent your hair from getting damaged.
Whether you opt for a leave-in conditioner or a wash-out conditioner, either one will do wonders at nourishing and softening your hair. Conditioners make hair easier to manage, so you wouldn’t have to exert much force when styling it. They also provide your hair with an extra protective barrier, making it less prone to damage.
If you don’t have a conditioner, you can also use olive oil. Simply heat some of the oil in a microwave and apply it liberally on your strands. Use a comb to get more coverage. Additionally, the oil can be used to moisturize a dry scalp. Leave the oil on for about 10 minutes, then shampoo it out.
Think of hair masks as the big guns when it comes to keeping your hair conditioned and nourished. Their formulas are extra concentrated to deeply moisturize and repair your hair, as they’re usually fortified with natural ingredients, vitamins, and oils that can deeply penetrate your hair.
Masks are much thicker in consistency than standard conditioners, but as mentioned, they are more powerful and can make all the difference when it comes to hair renewal. Find a mask that suits your hair type and targets your main hair issues and do a mask treatment at least twice a week.
Clarifying hair is important because you remove all of the built-up product and dirt that has accumulated in your locks. You can go to the salon or purchase an effective clarifying shampoo. You can also opt to use a mixture of vinegar and water to clarify your hair.
Simply mix half a cup of white vinegar and a cup of water. After shampooing your hair, soak your strands in the vinegar mixture for a minute, then wash it out. You can then shampoo your hair again to eliminate the sour vinegar scent.
This is not so much a hair renewal method as it is a preventative measure. Curling irons, flat irons, and blow dryers are vital tools when it comes to styling our hair, but too much exposure to heat will lead to breakage and damage. Heat can also lead to dryness and brittleness for our hair.
Professionals say that this is because the tools we use tend to be too hot for our delicate strands. Mid-range temperatures can effectively style your hair, although they may take a little longer than higher heat settings. Whenever you use heat to style your hair, you should also make sure that you use a heat protector to reduce thermal damage.
While you can do DIY, at-home treatments to revitalize and renew your hair, there is a certain type of care only a professional stylist can give. Salon stylists are equipped and well-versed on all the latest hair renewal techniques, so if you’re experiencing hair damage, it’s best to head to your salon for a consultation.
