I would say that my hair is probably my best feature thanks to my good hair genetics and good choices of hair products. Every person has different type of hair (soft, thick, thin, too soft, frizzy or damaged) but I am blessed to have thick, black and shiny hair. Enough of boasting and let's get to the point already lol =). So these are my secrets to healthy hair:
1. Identify your hair issue or problem : Oily/ Frizzy/ Damaged/ Thin/ Dandruff. In my case, oily hair.
2. Choose the best shampoo that suits your hair type. For me, I am using Herbal Essences Dangerously Straight because it weigh my long hair down and it smells very nice.
3. Never be afraid of trying a new type / brand of shampoo. When the shampoo feels right, stick to it. So whenever you are in a stage of trying new shampoos always buy the small bottle one.
4. Use conditioner once for every 2 days. Use the conditioner that comes with the shampoo you are using. Do not use different type or brand of conditioner as it will not be effective or worst, may damage your hair.
5. To avoid oily scalp, only apply conditioner downwards starting from the middle part of your hair. Leave it for 1 or 2 minutes. Wash your face or brush your teeth while waiting.
6. After shower, dab your hair gently with a dry towel and do not blow dry your hair. The best way to keep your hair beautiful and healthy is not by blowing it but let it air dry (unless if you are in a rush to go somewhere). By the way, a long hair like mine usually takes less than 2 hours to get dry in room temperature.
7. While waiting your hair to dry, apply a little bit of hair serum or hair oil at the ends to prevent split-ends and frizziness. Make this a habit every day after shower to prevent damaged hair.
8. Before you go to sleep, comb your hair and let it lay on one side of the pillow. Do not scrunch it beneath your head, it will get tangled easily.
9. Always, always wash your hair clean after you get your hair done with hairspray or mousse. Too much chemical can also harm your hair.
10. Too much split ends? Trim it straight.
