Simple, isn't it?
So, now that I've answered your basic query, let's move on to the major part - hair care routine that you must follow in the morning, especially on the day you have to go for a hair wash.
1. Oiling Your Hair
A very important point to make note of. Oiling your hair is an essential part of hair care routine that everyone must follow, irrespective of their hair type. People say that you must oil your hair overnight and then wash it off the next morning. Yes, you can do that. But what if you forget to oil your hair at night and have to wash it in the morning? Nothing to worry! You can oil your hair in the morning, keep it for an hour and then wash it off. It will do the same amount of good as the overnight thing does.
2. Shampoo Is Necessary
Yes, it is. Shampooing your hair is extremely important. But as they say, everything has a limit. And so does shampooing your hair. One thing you should always remember is that, you should not overuse the shampoo, as it can make your hair dry and brittle. Take a little amount of shampoo, mix it with little water and gently massage your hair and scalp. This will ensure that your hair gets the proper nutrition it requires and stays strong. Keep massaging your hair with shampoo for a good 2-3 minutes and then wash it off with hot or lukewarm water.
3. Conditioning Your Hair Is A Must
This is the next and a very important step in hair care. Once you are done with shampooing your hair, ensure that all the water from your hair is strained out properly. Now, apply the conditioner in a downwards pattern. Start from the crown of your head and apply the conditioner till the tip of your hair. Do not apply conditioner on your scalp. Keep it for a good five minutes and then wash it off with cold water. Remember, cold water is the key here.
4. Serum Is The Key
Once you are done conditioning your hair, pat it dry with a towel. Make sure that you do not tie your hair with the towel. Just pat it dry and leave it at that. After some time, when the hair is half dried, you can apply a hair serum to your hair. Follow the same application process that you did for applying the conditioner. Start from the crown and bring it to the tips. Let your hair be like that till it completely gets dried. The key here is that you should just take a few drops of serum and apply it. Taking a lot of serum can make your hair look greasy again and will not serve your purpose.
5. Let Your Hair Loose
After you wash your hair, you should not tie it. Let it breathe. Let it loose and garb a lot of attention. Tying your hair can make it brittle. And, even if you have to tie it while travelling, you can just tie it loosely with a rubber band or a clip.
Tips That Will Help Your Hair Stay Strong
Do not tie your hair very tight. It might make your hair turn brittle and result in breakage or hair fall.
