Did you know that your post-shower hair care routine can have an integral impact on the overall health of your hair? We've rounded up our top tips to ensure that you are caring for your hair in the best way possible, especially when it is fresh out of the shower!
1. Ditch the Heavy Towels
Instead of rubbing and tying up your hair with a standard larger towel, swap your current hair towel out for a smaller microfibre towel, or old t-shirt! The problem with most towels that you would find in an average bathroom is that they are often way too big, heavy, and can cause a lot of unnecessary ripping of the hair. Microfibre towels or t-shirts are much gentler on the hair as it dries.
2. Use a Leave-In Conditioner
Why a Leave-In Conditioner? Our Leave-In Conditioners provide extra moisture to the hair, protect it from damage, and help detangle fussy strands. Nearly every hair type can benefit from the use of leave-in conditioners, but you may find them particularly useful if you have dry, damaged, or frizzy hair! Add extra volume, shine and care to your hair in this simple step.
3. Allow Your Hair to Partially Dry Before Brushing
Hair that's wet and filled with moisture is more fragile than hair that's dry, which can result in snapping when it's brushed. Therefore, it's recommended to brush hair in a dry state, or partially dry state. This means allowing your hair to partially air-dry post-shower before beginning to comb through hair strands! If it isn't realistic for you to do this step every time you wash your hair, that's totally okay, just try your best!
4. Lock Things in With a Hair Oil
Applying a hair oil while the hair is wet, or partially wet, will nourish and protect it from frizz as it dries into a subtly shiny version of its natural texture. Once the hair is fully dry, you may pump a touch more oil into your palm, rub it between your hands and smooth it over your lengths and ends. Our favourite hair oil here at Calia is our Organic Argan Oil!
The takeaway? Even the smallest steps, such as how you care for your hair post-shower can have a BIG impact on the health of your hair! By making an effort in your daily habits, you will have beautiful hair in no time.
