7 Hair Care Tips for Healthy Hair

There’s no feeling quite as good as having your hair professionally treated at Gingers Hair Salon in Malvern. Our stylists make sure your hair feels soft, shiny, and healthy, and you leave feeling fantastic. To make that feeling last longer, it’s important to care for your hair between salon appointments. So, in this post, we’ll share with you our top seven hair care tips to keep your hair looking its best.

1. Brush your hair before you shower

No matter your hair texture, it’s important to detangle your hair before you wash it. When your hair is wet, it’s much more vulnerable to breakage, so it’s best to remove knots and tangles while it’s still dry. This will also help to distribute the shampoo and hair care products from the roots down to the ends while you’re washing it.

2. Condition correctly

You only need a 2p-sized amount of conditioner for the product to do its job. Start at the mid-shaft and work down to the ends, then work your way up to the scalp. Leave your conditioner on for a couple of minutes and then wash it out gently.

3. Use a hair mask regularly

A moisturising hair mask or deep conditioner is recommended once a week to hydrate the hair. If you are a big fan of dry shampoo or heat styling tools, you may need to use one twice a week to avoid your hair and scalp getting dry.

Ask our stylists for their top recommendations for hair masks to keep your hair soft and shiny.

4. Be mindful of key ingredients

Not all shampoos are created equal. We always recommend using salon-quality products if you can since these are formulated with active ingredients and revitalising oils. Supermarket brands often have harsh chemicals that dry the hair out and can give you a flaky scalp.

5. Eat a balanced diet

It’s not just about what goes on your hair, it’s also about what you put in your body. Your hair is mostly protein, so you need a balanced diet filled with amino acids to keep it strong and healthy. Lots of green leafy veggies and healthy fats are important, as well as lot of water to keep your body hydrated.

7. Turn down the temp of your shower

As much as we love a steaming hot shower, this is actually damaging your hair. Very hot water will irritate your scale and weaken the hair as it grows out. Try to wash your hair in warm water and at the end of your shower, use the hand-held tool to give your hair a quick cold rinse. If you are feeling a steaming hot shower, use a hair protector to avoid unnecessary damage.
