Hair routine is a complex process that depends on your strands type, condition, and individual properties. However, there are hair care basics that are suitable for most people.

Basic routine

Health and beauty starts from the inside out. Eating a healthy diet rich in vitamins and minerals make your strands appealing. Try masks regularly to moisturize and nourish your hair from the inside out. This is especially important for dry and damaged strands.

Along with inner health, make sure you follow the recommendations below.

Step 1: Cleanse

Cleanse

Choose a shampoo that suits your hair and skin type. Don’t overdo the shampooing — 2-3 times a week is enough for most people. Apply the shampoo to damp, massaging your scalp in circular motions with your fingertips, not your fingernails, to prevent irritation. Then rinse the shampoo off thoroughly. After washing, apply a conditioner to make it smoother and more manageable. Pay special attention to the ends, as they are more prone to dryness.

Step 2: Moisturize

Moisturize

After washing, gently wrap a towel to remove excess moisture and let it dry naturally. If you are using a dryer, choose a gentle mode and keep it away from your head. Try oils regularly. This is especially crucial for dry or color-treated related issues. Prevent overexposing your head to sunlight, chlorinated water, salt water, and polluted air. Wear hats or scarves to protect your head in the sun and pool.

Step 3: Detangle

Detangle

A good quality comb or a wide-toothed brush is great – take it through your head starting at the ends and gradually working up to the roots. This will prevent unnecessary brakes and tangles. Also, don’t brush wet your head as it is more vulnerable and prone to damage. If it is necessary to comb wet strands, try special products to make combing easier, such as combing sprays.

Step 4: Style and protect

Style and protect

If you frequently have a blow dryer, straightener, or flat iron, be sure to cover your head with heat protectants. They prevent issues when exposed to high temperatures.

Also, don’t choose heavy pulling and prolonged wearing of tight rubber bands. This causes skin irritation and follicles collapse. Protect yourself from the sun’s rays in the summer and from cold winds and cold temperatures in the winter.

Step 5: Spot-treat

Spot-treat

If you have damaged sections or ends that need extra care, try spot treatments to treat these problem areas. Special serums can be applied only to the problem areas to strengthen them and prevent further loss.

Useful tips

A nutritious diet and a healthy lifestyle

A balanced diet rich in essential compounds is crucial to maintain health. Here are the essential elements that contribute to health and the foods that contains them:

  1. Vit A: Carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach, mangoes, and apricots. Essential for the production of sebum, which hydrates the cuticle.
  2. B group: Eggs, beans, walnuts, whole grains, and leafy green vegetables. Maintains and stimulates growth. Vitamin B7 (biotin) is the most valuable.
  3. Vit C: Citrus fruits, strawberries, red peppers, broccoli, and kiwi. An antioxidant that takes place in the collagen production.
  4. Vit D: Fatty fish, mushrooms, fortified dairy products, and eggs. Promotes scalp health and stimulates growth.
  5. Vit E: Nuts, seeds, spinach, avocados, and vegetable fats. An antioxidant that protects the cuticle from oxidative stress.
  6. Iron: Red meat, poultry, fish, beans, lentils, spinach, and buckwheat. Essential for transporting oxygen to cells and follicles.
  7. Zinc: Seeds, beans, seafood, nuts, and whole grains. Valuable for providing growth and repairing.
  8. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids: Oily fish, nuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, and vegan fats. Hydrates and prevents dryness and breakage.

In addition to these agents, it is crucial to drink enough water, as dehydration leads to dry hair and skin.

Refrain from using styling treatments, products and tools

Refrain from using styling treatments

Refraining from overuse of styling products, products and tools is key to making your hairstyle appealing. Dryers, straighteners, and curling irons cause dry and brittle cuticles. Heat breaks down the protective protein structures and removes natural moisture, making cuticles more vulnerable. In addition, overuse of chemical content such as sprays, gels, and foams cause scale buildup on the head, which also affects its appearance.

Styling liquids and tools also irritate the scalp, which lead to dryness, itching, and dandruff. This causes discomfort and affects the overall health of the scalp. Thus, it is important to minimize them and give you time to recover between styling sessions.

If you must have styling liquids or heat tools, make sure you follow precautions to minimize disruptive effects. Choose heat products to protect you from high temperatures, and put styling tools at the lowest effective temperature. Also, try to take time to recover by using masks, serums, and other nutritions.

A shampoo and conditioner should suit your type

If you have dry cuticles, look for a shampoo with moisturizing ingredients. For oily type, go for a deep cleansing shampoo.

Keep your head clean and free from oil

Keep your head clean and free from oil

It’s an important part of maintaining a healthy scalp. The fat produced by the sebaceous glands has a protective function, but excess fat leads to hair pollution and scalp irritation. Therefore, regular shampooing with a shampoo that suits your type removes excess fat, impurities, and residue from styling content. You should also pay attention to massaging your scalp while washing, as this stimulates blood circulation and provides your follicles with oxygen. Prefer a shampoo that does not dry out the scalp and not overdo the frequency of washing to prevent disturbing the natural balance.

Aloe vera or curd for conditioning

Aloe vera contains unique compounds that hydrates the head skin. It also has anti-inflammatory properties that soothe an irritated scalp. You can apply aloe gel to clean your head for half an hour, and then rinse it off.

Curd is also good as a conditioner. It is rich in proteins and fats that strengthen and moisturize cuticles. To try cottage cheese, apply it on a clean, damp head, leave it on for 20-30 minutes, and then rinse it off thoroughly.

These natural remedies are a good option for those who prefer more natural products. However, it’s worth remembering that results may vary depending on your curl and skin type.

Don’t curve wet hair, and avoid the dryer

These practices are harmful to its structure, as it’s more vulnerable and susceptible to dangerous environments. Abruptly pulling causes breakage, split ends, and follicles collapse. You should refuse stiff combs or brushes on wet curls. Instead, experts recommend a wide-toothed comb or fingers to gently separate curls and remove tangles. Having said that, excessive use of a blow dryer also rubs the cuticle, causing it to dry out and lose its natural shine. Therefore, it is recommended to give your head time to dry naturally whenever possible or put the dryer on the lowest heat setting when necessary.

Get enough sleep

Healthy sleep plays an extremely crucial role in maintaining overall well-being, including beauty. During sleep, the body actively repairs itself, including regeneration of cells and follicles. Lack of sleep leads to stress, which causes loss and reduced growth. In addition, the quality of sleep also affects hormonal balance, which also affects curl structure. So, you should aim for regular, quality sleep of 7-9 hours per night.

Be gentle

Be gentle

Treating and caring for your curls is key to beauty. Coloring chemicals, perms, and frequent heat are harmful. Therefore, it is important to minimize aggressive styling treatments and tools. You should also refuse tight hairstyles and frequent use of hairpins. Following these principles provides you with curls that are beautiful and strong for years to come.

Cold or lukewarm water for washing

It is recommended to have cold or warm water to wash your head, but not hot water. Hot water causes dryness of skin in the cuticle, resulting in loss of shine and increased breakage. Warm water opens the pores and cuticle, providing more effective cleansing of dirt and grease. After washing, it is recommended to rinse with cold water to close the pores and cuticles to moisturize and make curls shiny. In addition, cold water stimulates scalp circulation, which promotes growth.

Deep-conditioning masks are heaven!

Deep-conditioning masks are heaven!

They are a great tool for strengthening and repairing strands. These masks often contain nourishing ingredients such as oils, vitamins, and proteins that hydrates and nourish the cuticle from the inside out, helping to rebuild its structure. Deep conditioning is especially recommended for sensitive ones as it restores lost moisture and elasticity. Regular deep conditioning masks significantly improve the condition of your hair, making it softer, smoother, and shinier. However, it is important not to overdo it and apply masks according to the manufacturer’s recommendations to avoid overloading your curls.

Back to baby care

The features of children’s hair products are as follows:

  1. Safety: They are formulated with a child’s sensitivity in mind. They do not contain harsh chemical ingredients such as sulfates, parabens, silicones and other substances that cause atopic reactions or skin irritation.
  2. Gentleness: Baby formulas are usually softer and lighter to provide delicate care for baby’s fine and delicate curls.
  3. Moisturizing: They are often enriched with hydrating ingredients such as aloe, glycerin and plant fats.
  4. Pleasant fragrances: Baby shampoos and conditioners often have light and pleasant fragrances that appeal to children and make the washing process more enjoyable.
  5. Easy to use: They are usually packaged in convenient bottles with dispensers or flat caps that are easy to open and use with one hand.
  6. Hypoallergenic: They are usually thoroughly dermatologically tested and formulated to minimize the risk of allergic reactions.
