Hair loss is something many women will experience in their lifetime, and a good hair care routine can go a long way toward minimising the risk of it. The core of that routine is regularly washing hair with high-quality products. By the same token, it should be noted that in some circles, foregoing conditioner, or hair products altogether, is popular.
However, when it comes to hair loss, that is definitely not the best course of action. Below, you’ll find some of the essential pointers for establishing a good hair routine.
Selecting hair products
Selection of shampoo and conditioner can be a daunting task, with so many different types available. This choice is actually a good thing, with the potential to have a product more closely cater to your hair type. Certain types add volume to hair, which is especially helpful for thin or limp hair. In other cases, hair can be dry, which means a moisturising conditioner is absolutely essential.
A deep massage
Washing one’s hair is not solely about removing dirt and other impurities; it’s also very much about stimulation. Most hair products come with instructions to massage them deeply into the scalp while washing, and there’s a reason for that. Outside of washing, we rarely stimulate our own scalps, which is good for blood flow and, in turn, hair growth.
When washing hair, shampoo should be deeply rubbed into the scalp, as well as the length of hair. Conditioner, on the other hand, does its work solely in the hair, and so need not be massaged in.
The Benefit of Conditioner
High-quality conditioners are designed to help strengthen hair and prevent breakage, which is a form of hair loss. That familiar feeling of smooth hair that comes after conditioning is not only pleasant to the touch; it also makes brushing and combing much easier. That goes a long way to stopping hair from being pulled out in the process.
