3 Hair Things People Should Chill Out About
links + small things
One. It is OKAY to wash your hair every day. IT IS! Shampoo became the enemy a few years ago and since then we’ve been leaning heavily on dry shampoos (which are OK in moderation). But look at what products are super popular now? Scalp-care-focused products. I think the push to skip washing and load up on dry shampoo has landed people in a position where they need to do a bit of damage control on their scalp from years of not properly cleaning it.
Do you have you wash your hair every single day? No, you don’t have to. But pay attention to your own scalp, hair, and life routine. If you can go a day between washing, great! If you can’t? No big deal. Make sure you are caring for your hair, from scalp to ends, and you’ll be in good shape.
Two. Bond-Repair. Don’t get me wrong, bond-repair-focused products are great, but it is not the only option. Sometimes a classic hydrating hair mask is enough! And frankly, moisturizing masks do a better job of making your hair feel soft, strong, and durable, more than bond-repair masks do.
Three. Blow-drying your hair is bad. I was honestly skeptical when I learned that air-drying can actually cause more damage than blowing dry at low/medium heat. As it turns out, the water left on the hair for longer during an air-dry routine can actually disturb the inner part of your hair more than if you were to blow it dry. So load up on a heat protector and blow dry your hair as you see fit!
