Is smooth and silky hair on your goal list, but you just don’t know how to get there? Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Achieving silky hair can take time for some, but you’ve just got to trust the process. With these 7 simple steps, you’ll soon be swishing those silky locks like there’s no tomorrow…
The first and most important step is when drying your hair, use the “cool” setting or air dry it. This is so much healthier for your hair and you’re not damaging it with unnecessary heat.
Secondly, don’t forget to use a heat protectant when you’re applying any kind of heat on your hair. It’s best to avoid using heat where you can, but if you don’t have a heat protectant, now is a good time to invest in one.
The third tip is not to put your hair up too often, as this restricts the blood flow to your head, therefore taking longer to grow. Putting your hair up can also cause hair breakage, due to the hair follicles being damaged.
Fourth, I bet you knew this one was coming… invest in a magical hair mask! Of course, this doesn’t have to be expensive, it’s all about the quality and not the price. The one that I’ve been using is from Garnier and it seems to do the job perfectly. However, if you want to splash out then no one is stopping you!
Fifth, need that extra bit of moisture in your hair? Mask your hair with pure almond oil and leave it on for an hour or so, then wash it off normally with shampoo and conditioner. It’s best to do this on a day that when staying at home and are doing nothing. Unless you like the slicked, greasy hair look then you do you!
Sixth. This one is obvious, but don’t forget to brush your hair in the morning and before you go to bed, or whenever you feel like it needs a good brush to detangle any knots and prevent further damage.
Finally, this is an optional add on, but “skin, hair and nails” tablets can help with hair growth and health. I have been taking ones from Holland & Barrett and they have definitely been helping in terms of hair and nail growth and strength. However, I’ve not noticed any difference in terms of my skin yet, but I’ve not had any side effects from it.
Of course, do your own research and seek professional advice if on additional medication before putting anything in your body.
