The Top Ten Things You Absolutely Must Include in Your Hair Routine!

08 Oct 2021

Do you feel as though you're missing something from your hair routine? Not to worry—the majority of us are! The majority of individuals do not prioritize their hair's health, which is reasonable; nonetheless, it is absolutely worth considering. Your daily routine has a greater influence on the health of your hair than you realize, even more so if you live in a hot and humid country like Singapore!

If your hair is dry, brittle, dull, or prone to breakage, it's time to switch up your hair routine. As with any other part of the body, your hair requires nutrients to be healthy. The expression "use it or lose it" is just as applicable to your hair's health as it is to your muscles, so don't ignore those tresses! With that, let's get started with this concise list of items you should incorporate into your everyday hair regimen!

Hair Care Routines                                                                    

1. Maintain Regular Trimmings!

Is your aim to have long hair that is healthy as well? Regular haircuts and trims are a good place to start! I understand that this may appear to be counterproductive, but I assure you that it is not. Once the ends of your hair have split, they cannot be repaired.

These dead ends can prevent your hair from growing and create more damage; thus, rather than attempting to hold your split ends together, call your hairstylist and schedule a trim! The suggested interval between cuts is around six to eight weeks, although your hairdresser may prescribe a different time period based on your hair objectives.

2. Rinse Thoroughly with Lukewarm Water

As is the case with the majority of individuals, I like a great scorching shower! Showering and shampooing your hair in excessively hot water, on the other hand, maybe exceedingly harmful. Hot water can deplete your hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and dull-looking. Consider that lukewarm water is just as cleaning as really hot water. Make the effort for your gorgeous locks!

3. Ensure That You Are Conditioning Properly

While everyone is aware that conditioner is a necessary component of healthy hair, did you realize that you are most likely applying it incorrectly? I realize this is startling, but allow me to clarify. Your hair often becomes oily at the roots first, correct? This serves as a reminder that conditioner should only be applied to certain parts of your hair!

Leave conditioner off your roots; this way, you're less likely to produce build-up and additional oil. Allow your body's natural oils to handle the heavy lifting at the roots, and concentrate on conditioning your hair from mid-length to ends. Conditioning your hair at the roots might weigh it down, resulting in less volume in your style!

An excellent suggestion for applying conditioner is to use a wide-tooth comb afterward! This will ensure that the conditioner is distributed evenly and will make detangling your hair much simpler.

4. Shampoo the Scalp!

In striking contrast to how you should be conditioning when you use shampoo, you should concentrate on your scalp and roots! Concentrating on your strands with shampoo might lead them to become dry and lackluster, while your scalp actually requires washing. Your scalp generates oils on a continuous basis, loses skin cells, and might occasionally accumulate hair products if you use them every day!

Therefore, when shampooing your hair, exfoliate your scalp. Daily scalp massage can also aid in hair growth by boosting blood flow to the hair follicles! Additionally, scrape with your fingertips rather than your fingernails. (Nobody likes their head touched!)

5. When Blow Drying, Use a Brush!

Blow-drying your hair is not a simple task, but it will be a lot easier if you use a round brush! You'll want to brush your hair in the same direction as the blow-dryer.

Straighten your hair with a brush while you blow-dry for a smoother finish, and if you have time, use moderate heat! To help avoid frizz, blow dry from roots to ends and finish with the "Cool" setting on your dryer.

6. Be Sure to Use a Silk Pillowcase!

Sleeping on a silk pillowcase is essential for our curly-haired buddies! Cotton pillowcases are very harsh on your strands and tend to stretch them out while you sleep, resulting in breakage and more tangles. Cotton will also absorb hair products and perspiration, which can result in skin outbreaks! Making the switch to a silk pillowcase will assist you in avoiding frizzy hair and damage. Therefore, make the transition and maximize your beauty sleep!

7. Indulge in a Self-Pampering Deep Conditioning Treatment

A deep conditioner is a must-have in every hair care routine, regardless of the texture of your hair! If you often color-treat your hair and notice that it is becoming brittle, dry, and lacks luster, a deep conditioner, such as the Mucota Scena Treatment, will help bring your strands back to life. You may visit the salon and have a stylist do a deep conditioning treatment on you, or you can purchase one to use at home!

Deep conditioners are often meant to moisturize and smooth hair, but others are developed specifically to repair damaged chemical connections in your strands, such as Mucota Scena Treatment! Once a week, use your deep conditioner. To achieve the greatest effects, apply the conditioner to damp/wet hair, allow it to remain for approximately 10 minutes, and then rinse with lukewarm or cool water!

8. Don't Be Harsh on Your Wet Hair!

Wet hair is far more prone to breaking than dry hair, and being harsh on it will almost certainly result in strand breakage. To avoid tearing your hair, untangle damp hair using a wet brush or a wide-tooth comb. Dry your hair gently and avoid roughening it up with your towel. Gently dab your hair with your towel rather than tugging or pushing it, and begin at the roots! Investing in a microfiber towel or a hair wrap and allowing it to absorb the moisture from your strands is an excellent approach to protect your damp, fragile hair.

9. Your Hair-parting Matters!

Oftentimes, the tiniest modifications to our daily habits have the largest influence. A simple way to have a larger, more voluminous appearance is to alter the way you split your hair! Try separating your hair on the opposite side and you will immediately notice a difference in the lift of your roots.

10. Use a Shampoo That is Sulfate-free

Shampoos containing sulfates dehydrate the hair. Rather than that, go for a moisturizing shampoo such as our Mucota Smoothing CMC Sulfate-Free Shampoo to gently wash the hair while also hydrating it. Using a sulfate-free natural hair shampoo can help enhance hair texture, reduce hair breakage, and promote hair growth.
