Mask, treatment, serum, oil etc. – it’s not that easy to find the right products for your own hair routine when choosing hair care. This can quickly become expensive. Luckily, there are lots of easy tips for great hair that don’t cost anything. You just have to invest a little time!

Tip 1: Wash your hair properly

Washing your hair is an important step in hair care. Be sure to use lukewarm water to wash your hair. Water that is too hot can dry out the scalp and damage the hair structure. Water at the right temperature closes the hair structure and makes dull-looking hair shiny.

When choosing a shampoo , make sure to choose one that suits your needs and hair structure. Oily hair requires different care than dry hair . Usually a walnut-sized amount of shampoo is enough to wash your hair. You should lather the shampoo in your palms before spreading it over your scalp and massaging it gently. Leave out lengths and tips. These are automatically cleaned by rinsing. Conditioners and hair masks complete the care routine, detangle the hair and care for it. Apply the conditioner or hair mask mainly to the lengths and ends to prevent weighing down the hair. Finish rinsing with cold water. This smoothes the hair scales and gives your mane shine.

Tip 2: Dry more carefully

We all know it – after washing our hair, we want to rub it dry straight away to get rid of the annoying water. But this habit can be damaging to your hair as it leads to breakage and frizz . Instead of rubbing your hair wildly, you should gently dab it with a towel. It is important not to rub, but to press the towel lightly onto the hair.

This works even better with a microfiber cloth. These are softer than traditional towels and absorb moisture even faster without causing friction. Simply wrap your hair in it and let it rest for a few minutes. Another gentle method is air drying . This eliminates the need for heat and significantly reduces the risk of hair damage. If you still want to use a hairdryer, it is advisable to use a diffuser attachment that gently distributes the air. Be sure to use heat protection spray if you use styling tools with heat, such as a hairdryer, straightener or curling iron. The right method for drying your hair can make a big difference!

Tip 3: Use the right brush

Use a comb or brush that suits your hair type . Fine tooth combs are ideal for thin hair, while wide tooth combs or natural hair brushes are better for thick or curly hair. Always start combing at the ends of your hair and slowly work your way up. This way you avoid aggravating knots.

Be patient and gentle when combing. Do not pull or tear your hair too hard. A leave-in conditioner or hair oil can help soften the hair and make it easier to comb. You should be particularly careful when combing wet hair. After washing, these are more prone to hair breakage . Use a wide-tooth comb or a special brush for wet hair, starting again at the ends. Comb your hair regularly to prevent tangles.

Tip 4: Massage your scalp

A scalp massage is not only relaxing, it also promotes blood circulation in the scalp. This stimulates hair growth. You don’t need special brushes with sharp teeth, you can simply use your fingertips. Apply gentle pressure to the scalp, starting at the forehead and slowly working your way back towards the neck with small circular movements. Massage the entire scalp, not just specific areas, and don’t forget the areas behind the ears or at the top of the head.

If you want, you can use hair or scalp oil to make the short care break even more pleasant and to improve the moisture supply to the scalp. Take at least 5 to 10 minutes for the full effect of the massage to unfold.

Tip 5: Gentle styling

When it comes to styling your hair gently, there are a few things to keep in mind. In general, it is advisable to reduce heat tools such as hairdryers, curling irons, etc. to a minimum. The devices can dry out and damage the hair. If you can’t do without it, always use a heat protectant before using it and choose a lower heat setting.

Avoid constantly pulling your hair or braids that are too tight – this can also put so much strain on your hair that it can cause hair breakage. Leave your hair down occasionally or choose loose hairstyles to give it a break.

Use hairspray, hair gel or styling cream very sparingly and prefer products that are free of harmful chemicals. Also make sure to distribute them evenly and not to overload individual areas. When using hair ties, you should avoid those with metal parts. They may look super practical at first glance, but they can cause significant damage to the hair because the metal only presses on one spot.

Tip 6: Pay attention to a balanced diet

A balanced diet plays a crucial role in healthy and beautiful hair. One of the most important elements is protein. Hair is mostly made up of proteins. Protein-rich foods such as meat, fish, eggs, dairy products, legumes and nuts should therefore be on the menu regularly.

Make sure that you get enough iron into your body. Iron deficiency is one of the most common reasons for hair loss . Foods such as spinach, red meat, lentils and seeds are particularly good for meeting your iron needs. Omega-3 fatty acids are good for the scalp and therefore for hair growth. Vitamins and antioxidants also contribute to a healthy scalp. You should also drink enough fluids. Avoid foods high in sugar and unsaturated fats, as these can have a negative impact on hair health. In general, a healthy diet is extremely advisable.

Tip 7: Don’t sleep with your hair down

It may be tempting to simply lie down in bed without protecting your hair with a loose sleep style or other means such as a sleep cap. If you sleep with your hair down, it can get tangled, especially if you move around a lot while you sleep. This can lead to split ends and make your hair look brittle and damaged. In addition, the outer layer of hair gets roughened against the pillowcase while you sleep, causing frizz . To protect your hair, simply braid it into a loose braid or tie it in a silk scarf.

Here’s What Went Down With CeraVe Skincare After Shark Marketing

The idea came after Sofia Coppola, daughter of generalist who proposed it to a start up and wanted to improve her skin, but couldn’t find anything that worked for her. Sofia reached back out to “L’Oreal” when she felt it was ready for investment, and pitched her skincare concept. She was convinced in L’Oreal not just because of the product but because it was never proven, and was finally a placebo scam. L’Oreal even accused the company of buying sales. The general consensus?
