Now that a lot of us are looking to make changes to our routines for a healthier January, it is time to look at some of the ways we can stay healthy at home and keep our hair happy.
Hair is a huge part of who we are and many of us use our hair to express ourselves and show our personality. If you are looking for some new ways to care for your hair at home this year we have some brilliant natural hacks for you to try.
Here are some of the most important hair hacks you should consider at home this year that are natural and gentle.
A DIY hair mask
It is so important when looking after our hair to consider it as similar to the skin. Our hair needs moisture to stay strong and we need to apply a hair mask once a week or so to keep our locks strong and silky. You can make a simple hair oil at home to use on your hair for 1 hour with this recipe:
- ½ cup argan oil
- ½ cup olive oil
- ¼ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup caster oil
Apply to the hair from the roots and massage for 1 minute. Leave for at least 1 hour if not overnight before rinsing.
Heatless curls have to be the epitome of hair hacks these days and you can find many different methods for creating stunning curls at home. Heat is incredibly damaging for your hair and you should try to only use heat sparingly on special occasions. For every day healthy hair, heatless curls are fairly effortless and will leave you with stunning waves for the next few days once you do them.
Trim your hair at home
One of the things that many of us have missed during the pandemic is the ability to get a haircut at the hairdressers. If you are in lockdown or your local hairdressers are fully booked for a while it is a simple idea to trim your hair at home. Invest in a pair of hair cutting scissors on Amazon and learn how to give yourself a simple trim at home yourself. It might not be ideal but there are many ways you can cut your hair at home and make it look good. And if you mess up a little – at least you are at home! It is important to cut our hair now and again to keep it healthy because dead ends can spread to the root.
There are lots of products out there that are chocked full of chemicals and harsh ingredients that harm the hair. This is why choosing natural products such as an organic pomade is a switch you should consider for your hair. Take a look online at natural products and swap out your old ones for a new range of hairstyling products.
