Late night, deadlines and bad dates can all cause tension on your tresses. This is because stress hormones can increase your scalp's oil production leading to a greasy scalp, dandruff and lacklustre locks.
So what do you to do? Simple, keep hair happy with these tips:
- Brush before bedtime. Brushing hair using a natural bristled brush for about 2 minutes daily can not only dislodge dry flakes and dirt, it can also distribute oils which make hair extra glossy.
- Don't OD on product. Using a rich conditioner daily can cause build up. A better regimen: Deep conditioning once a week and using a lighter formula for the rest of the time!
- Choose Right. Never blow dry or iron hair without using a thermal protectant. Try L'Oreal Hot Straight Heat Activated Straightening Cream.
- Get a Scalp Massage. Try this pre-suds. Make a parting from ear to nape, then add a few drops of essential oil every two inches until you complete your entire head. Flip hair forward and using your fingertips massage in small circular motions all over your scalp.
