How often do you think about your hair care routine? It’s one of the most important aspects of your appearance and can make or break how you feel about yourself when you look in the mirror each morning. Most people understand that it’s important to take care of their hair and may have even heard about some methods that are supposedly better than others, but very few people actually follow through on those recommendations and put any real effort into their Hair Care Routine, ensuring their hair looks as good as possible each day.
1) Make it part of your day
A great hair care routine should be part of your daily routine. This doesn’t mean you have to spend hours in the bathroom, but you should take a few minutes each day to care for your hair. Use a good shampoo and conditioner. Find products that work well for your hair type and use them every time you wash your hair. Protect your hair from the sun.
2) Clean your Tools
Before you start your hair care routine, it’s important to make sure all of your tools are clean. This includes your brush, comb, and any other styling tools you use. A build-up of dirt and oil can lead to scalp irritation and dandruff. Plus, it’s just gross. So take a few minutes to clean your tools before you start your routine.
3) Never Over-Wash Your Hair
Over-washing your hair can strip it of its natural oils, leaving it dry, brittle, and damaged. Instead, aim to wash your hair every other day or every third day. And when you do wash it, be sure to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo. If possible, go without conditioner as this too can coat the strands with a film that leaves them limp and heavy. Once washed, towel-dry your hair with a clean towel—never rub—and then allow it to air dry for at least 30 minutes before applying any products like gel or mousse.
4) Sleep on Clean Sheets
A good hair care routine starts with clean sheets. Sleeping on dirty sheets can cause your hair to become greasy and oily, which can lead to dandruff. Plus, it’s just gross. So make sure to wash your sheets regularly. And if you’re struggling with dry skin or itchiness because of a more sensitive scalp, try switching to natural fabrics like organic cotton or linen sheets. Not only will these give you cleaner, softer sleep, but they’ll also be kinder to your skin.

5) Use a wide-tooth comb
A wide-tooth comb is a great way to start your hair care routine. It helps detangle your hair and can be used to distribute product evenly through your hair. Plus, it’s a great way to avoid breakage and damage to your hair. Start at the bottom and work your way up. This will help avoid tangles and knots. Starting at the top of your head and working down will cause more breakage as you’re trying to brush through already tangled hair. Be gentle! Too much pressure with a wide-tooth comb can cause more problems than it solves. Follow this simple rule of thumb – if it hurts, stop what you’re doing, and don’t do it anymore!
