Is your hair in need of a bit of recovery time after a long week? Settle in for some Sunday pampering with our weekend hair routine and get ready to feel flake-free and fabulous.
1. Wash your hair properly
You may think you’ve been washing your hair perfectly, but a poor technique can actually be responsible for several common hair and scalp problems. For example, did you know that washing your hair with water that’s too warm aggravates your skin and can worsen scalp issues like dandruff? Sometimes it pays to go back to basics and make sure you know how to wash your hair properly. Check out our video to find out how.
2. Don’t just shampoo – use conditioner too!
A good anti-dandruff shampoo is your best friend when it comes to getting those scalp issues under control, but you can boost your dandruff protection – and take extra good care of your hair – by adding an anti-dandruff conditioner to your routine as well. Make sure you find the best conditioner for your needs, and use it after rinsing out your shampoo to make sure none of the dandruff-fighting actives get washed away and your hair is moisturized. Our video below is a good guide to how to condition your hair.
3. Dry your hair with care
It’s tempting to reach for the towel and rough-dry your hair into submission, but you might be doing more harm than good. Hair is at its weakest when wet, so follow our advice on how to dry your hair; for example, instead of rubbing your hair dry try patting it, or wrapping it in a T-shirt. The fibers are even more absorbent than a towel’s, and it’ll save you lots of drying time. Air drying is ideal, but we also have some tips for how to reduce styling damage if you can’t resist the blow dryer.
4. Straighten your hair without damage
Nothing quite says “polished” like a perfectly styled mane of hair, but unfortunately hair styling tongs and straightening irons almost always rely on heat to get your hair to retain its shape. Excessive heat can cause the water inside your hair fiber to boil, causing lasting damage. Luckily, there are ways to avoid causing heat damage to your hair. If you use styling tools, then our damage-preventing tips are an absolute must.
5. Boost your confidence
Now you’re looking and feeling great, it’s time to shine. Whether it’s meeting friends for a Sunday night get-together or you just want to be prepped for the world’s best Monday morning, our video can teach you how to get confident in record time. Watch below for a few tricks to get you feeling fantastic so you can show off your beautifully pampered hair to best effect.
