We've all been there. Trying every DIY hair mask under the sun to repair years of damage and bleaching. If you're like us, you've probably adopted a haircare routine to repair and bring moisture back to your hair. If you're doing everything from conditioning and masking and not seeing a difference, here's where you might be going wrong.
If you're using the right products and not seeing a difference in your hair, you might be using your hair products in the wrong order. Here's how to create a haircare routine that works. Order your products like the following:
1. Bonding Treatment
If you're noticing split-ends and damage to your strands, try using a bonding treatment once a week. Bonding treatments can be used to repair damage and strengthen your hair. Use it before washing your hair for best results.
2. Hair Mask
Our favourite step- mask & chill. Apply your hair mask to dry hair and work it into your ends, moving upwards towards your roots. Let the mask sit as per its instructions. Psst..our Watermelon Crush Hair Mask is amazing for nourishing hair and bringing moisture back to your strands (it's also super cute).
After rinsing out your hair mask, work your shampoo into your roots. Avoid applying shampoo to your ends and concentrate it to your scalp, letting it wash over your hair.
Don't skip this step! Conditioning your hair regularly repairs and hydrates your hair. Pro tip- squeeze out excess water in your hair before applying conditioner so that it doesn't slide off! Let it sit in your hair for a few minutes or as per the instructions before rinsing.
5. Leave-in conditioner
Leave-in conditioner can be great for bringing life back to dry or damaged hair. Use it after you wash your hair and before styling. Leave-in products add extra moisture and protect your hair from damage.
6. Heat Protection
A little heat protectant goes a long way. Before styling your hair, apply heat protectant to prevent damage and hair breakage. Heat protectant serum or spray can be great for sealing moisture into your hair and creating a protective barrier between your hair and any heat tools you may use.
WHAT'S YOUR TYPE? 😏
Hair type, that is. Knowing your hair type is essential for taking care of your hair correctly. Hair types can be classified into the following:
- Straight Hair
- Wavy Hair
- Curly Hair
- Kinky Hair
Your haircare routine should be tailored for your hair type. A haircare routine for curly hair may involve more hydrating products to lock moisture into your curls. A haircare routine for wavy care may include detangling products.
Not only is it important to cater your haircare routine to your hair type, it's super important to create a haircare routine that works for your hair, whether it's dry, oily, or normal. For dry hair, opt for products containing moisturizing ingredients like avocado oil or grapeseed oil (like our Watermelon Crush Hair Mask!).
EXTRA LOVIN'. 💓
If you're using your hair products in the correct order and using all the haircare routine essentials for your hair type and still not seeing a difference, you may be forgetting to treat it. Hair that's been dyed, bleached, or chemically processed requires extra repair. Using haircare products which help to nourish and repair damage is essential to seeing a difference in your hair texture and overall health.
