LIFE OF GIRL!!!!
DEALING WITH MESSY HAIR…
Some people manage their hair.My hair managed me.It actually had a life of its own.It styled itself,went wherever it wanted to go and just refused to behave.
That I had messy hair is an understatement.
Like everyone else with difficult hair,I had to deal with dry ,unruly hair daily.It was a battle I never won.
My hair used to give me so much trouble that at times I felt that short haircuts were going to be my best choice.
As you can see from my pic I’ve been cursed with a mass of curly hair with attitude.But if my hair was tough,I was tougher.
I did everything the hair dresser suggested to get my hair under control.
I experimented a lot.And it was really a lot.
First phase it was coloring, streaking ,straightening.
These experiments looked great on me for a few months .But then the story repeated otself.The battle with my hair started again.
This time ,the problem ,was more vicious.These beauty treatments made my hair texture worse.It was dry ,brittle and unhealthy.
So to make my hair texture better my “hair consultant” suggested I go for for re-bonding, smoothening, keratine therapy .
This helped me for some time .But this too was not perfect solution for my hair.
When my re-bonded hair grew the roots were curly. That looked horrible.
When half of your hair is curly and tips are straight…. it’s not a great look.TRUST ME ON THAT!!!!!
I’ll tell you about my slow journey to beautiful healthy hair. This is to help all those who are suffering same way that I did.
After a long series of wrong decisions, wrong products I started with changing small things to help my hair regain its glory.
1)First thing I did was stopped all the random products advice to me by all dear parlors and hair saloons like lo’real, tony and guy, Schwarzkopf. TRESemme .
I went back to the last shampoo ,which suited my hair best .It was Matrix Opticare .
When my hair fall reduced a bit and my hair got better. I tried the same thing with my conditioner and switched it.
That’s when I realized that , I use to change shampoo and conditioner together . Which most often , harmed my hair.
Takeaway :It’s always better to change one hair care product, at a time.
2)Secondly hair serum is a must.
No matter how much hurry you are in, don’t miss hair serum especially after hair wash. It helps detangling your hair and smoothening them too. Try Tony and Guy Hair Serum .
3)Use wide toothed comb on hair first . It detangles the hair so they don’t break while combing.
Avoid combing wet hair.
Use which ever oil you want .But oil your hair ,before washing.
Best ,if you can keep it overnight.Otherwise keep your hair oiled for at-least an hour before washing.Put a hot toil over your hair .That helps in quick absorption of the oil into your hair. Try an oil massage ,at least once a week.
5)Keep conditioner in hair for at least 10 min.
If possible apply hot towel on head after with conditioner it does wonders to your hair .
It leaves the hair fragrant and very soft to touch .
6)Regular trimming helps.
Get your hair trimmed once in 6 months. It reduces split ends and removes the brittle and damaged ends.
7)If your hair is dry, then try using hair spa as conditioner once a week and leave it on for 10-15 min before washing. I use Lo’real Hair spa .
8)Don’t use a hot blower, straightening iron, curling rod etc. daily.
Heat damages hair . Use them as a resort for special occasion.
9) Keep your hair tied while sleeping, open hair tangles more so braid them.
10)At times Fashion demands hair coloring or re-bonding don’t deny yourself and go for it if you want to.
Just keep in mind “don’t undergo too many chemical treatments WITHOUT A GAP OF AT LEAST 4-6 WEEKS” it gives your hair ample lot of time to recover from earlier damages.
I tried these simple 10 tricks which did wonders to my hair I hope it helps you too in achieving good results for your hair too
Best of luck. Take one step at a time. It’ll take to near your goal before you even realize it.
