Redesign Your Haircare Routine
It will always be noticed when you have luscious, healthy hair – and when you don’t. It’s your crown, framing your face and setting off your style, so you should wear it with pride and take the best possible care of it.
Unfortunately, most of us don’t. We straighten, curl, blow-dry, dye and brush it so harshly that it ends up thinned and damaged by heat and over-styling.
We also forget to include our brows in our haircare routines, and where they’re such a prominent trend in recent years (which only looks set to continue), we’ve been busy trying out the best eyebrow growth serums on the market to achieve the bushy-brow It-girl look.
Luckily, there are simple, inexpensive ways you can restore your hair’s former glory at home, without visiting a salon. In this guide, we’ll give you the lowdown on the haircare products you MUST have in your hair care routine to produce the results you crave.
Eyebrow Growth Serum for Statement Brows
Natural, bushy, brushed-out brows are the fashion statement that has endured for around 8 years now, when supermodels launched the trend in 2009. If you suffer from lacklustre brows that have become thin and sparse due to over-plucking in your teens, have no fear.
Eyebrow growth serums have been developed in recent years to help everyone regain their natural brow thickness. They contain proteins and minerals to encourage regrowth, and will soon have you chucking out your no-longer-necessary eyebrow pencil.
Fortifying Shampoo for Clean and Bouncy Hair
Get your hands on a shampoo enriched with vitamins, minerals and plant extracts to repair and nourish your hair from the roots. Micro-proteins help to restore hair from within, and protect and strengthen against breakage.
These shampoos are particularly good for dry, colored and heat-damaged hair that needs an extra boost to appear flowing and healthy-looking again.
Conditioning Hair Mask for Health from Within
These deep conditioning treatments usually come in tubs rather than bottles, and should be smoothed on and left to work their magic for longer than your usual conditioner. They have a thicker consistency to sit on the hair and infuse deep within every strand.
They help to protect against breakage, which is the main cause of thin, lifeless hair. A hair mask will also prevent frizzing, leave hair soft and silky, and enhance your natural shine.
High-Shine Serum for a Sleek Finish
These products have the added benefit of being both conditioning and restorative, and also leaving your hair silky smooth, bouncy and full of life. They’re usually applied to dry hair to finish off a look with a high-shine sheen, but can be spritzed on when damp if preferred.
Use from the middle-length of your hair down to the tips to prevent split ends and enjoy luscious softness.
- Use a conditioning hair mask a few days before dyeing or bleaching hair to strengthen and protect.
- Brush your hair from the tips and work upwards, preventing breakage and pulling from the roots.
- Shampoo your hair twice before applying conditioner for a deep clean.
- Only put conditioner on your tips to ward off greasy roots.
- Try not to wash your hair every day, to give it a break from harsh chemicals and over-washing, which can cause your scalp to produce extra oil to replace what it has lost.
