You look in the mirror and all you can see are split ends and frizz. How did it ever get like this! You wash your hair every day, use expensive shampoo, don’t skimp on the conditioner, and yet, your hair is a mess. Know the feeling? Well, here is what to do. Ditch your old routine and pick up a new, better hair care routine that will surprise you with its results and easy to follow program.
Many people spend a lot of money on expensive shampoos. All of these shampoos promise to keep the hair thicker, shinier, and more manageable. How do these shampoos achieve such results, by adding in waxes and other additives to add strength to the hair. Unfortunately, these additives only work for so long before they build up and damage the hair that they are supposed to be protecting. If one likes those expensive shampoos, choosing to use a clarifier once a week can help protect the hair, but otherwise, there is a cheaper and more reliable method of treating these conditions.
First, wash your hair with a clarifying shampoo. Almost any cheap shampoo will do the trick. Make sure it is not a shampoo that contains alcohol or wax, as both of these can damage the hair. Once the hair is washed, go to a stylist and have the split ends removed because while there are conditioners that bind them together, there is no true way to fix split ends and they can eventually lead to further damage to the hair.
After the hair dressers, then it is off to the store for new supplies. Try to find inexpensive shampoos and conditioners that do not contain alcohol or wax in them. Avoid the hair care products that promise to strengthen or promise to “pump up the volume” as these shampoos and conditioners have additives such as wax to help the shampoo and conditioners perform as stated.
Once you are home, do not wash your hair. Instead, skip a day between washings and simply rinse the hair in between days. This makes it possible for the hair to absorb natural oils and conditioners to keep it healthy and strong. This can take time to get used to, but in the end, softer and more manageable hair is worth the effort.
