Despite the ever-evolving trends for short and sculptural styles, one cannot deny the loveliness of a full head of gorgeous luscious locks.
But with long hair comes added responsibility – and long hair means extra work.
Here’s how to get yours looking worthy of a red carpet moment…….
“Wash out hair masks are great for healthy hair, but regular applications of leave-in treatments are vital,” says Rebecca Brent of L’Oreal and Willis York salon.
Hot sun, wind, air conditioning and heated tools all dry out our hair, so it’s important to moisturise it just like we do our skin. Pump hydration back in with regular applications of leave-in treatments.
Combing your hair when dry creates static, and can tug and break the hair. Instead, detangle in the shower with a slathering of conditioner and a wide toothed comb.
Over-washing strips the natural protective oils from your hair and can lead to dryness and frizz. Only wash your hair every few days, and use dry shampoo in between washes.
It’s hard to cut your hair when you’re trying to grow it, but regular trims will remove split ends and keep your hair looking fresh.
YOUR SCALP COUNTS
When thinking about hair care we often overlook the scalp, even though it’s the factory that proudces our healthy hair. A healthy scalp means healthy hair, and if you’re scalp is unhappy it’ll show. Regular head massages (you can do it yourself or ask your hairdresser) promote blood flow and circulation. Give your head a bit of loving care with some of these soothing and rejuvenating products.
Protect your hair from burns and drying with heat protectant products.
Give your locks a winning finishing touch with products that will enhance their shine.
