If you love to use products like I do, you may find that overtime you’ll develop some less than ideal hair issues. This isn’t always the case, but it’s never a bad idea to try to counteract the potentially unpleasant actions of one product with another.
For my texture lovers, if you use a sea salt spray to add some bulk and texture to your otherwise lifeless hair, make sure you are conditioning generously with a good, nourishing conditioning product. Always use regular rinse-out conditioner on the daily, but add a leave-in into your routine as well. Most sea salt sprays are incredibly drying. And while they can give hair a really cool effect, if overused you may end up having to cut some length off due to irreparable ends. Avoid getting to that point by pairing a leave-in conditioning spray with your sea salt spray.
Are you beating humidity and flyways with a smoothing cream? Smoothing creams are fantastic for adding a little bit of weight to the hair in order to help it lay down and stay straight. Unfortunately, build up of heavy products can lead to a waxy feeling on the hair shaft. It can also make hair a lot heavier than it needs to be. Use a clarifying shampoo once a week or so to clean off the hair shaft and avoid build up. If you color your hair, look for a clarifying shampoo that is safe for color!
Are you an avid hairspray user like I am? Good. But also bad because hairspray can be rather drying. Make sure you use a deep conditioner a couple times a month to keep your locks in tip-top shape. The way I look at it, I’ll never stop using hair spray, but I will attempt to counteract the dryness with a super nourishing deep conditioner.
These products are all great aids in helping your hair style beautifully, and as long as you are taking care of you hair simultaneously, you should be able to use them forever.
