Information on Nourishment
Hair can feel dry for all manner of reasons - be it bleaching, blow drying, straightening or curling! Environmental factors have a role to play too, as a sun-kissed skin often means stripped out strands. Restoring it to its vibrant, shiningly healthy best means bringing back moisture, hydration and deep nurturing care. Fortunately, hair care is ready to come to the rescue! The right hair nourishment product can add volume, bounce and body, plus the soft sensation you’ve been missing.
Can I Naturally Nurture?
Hair masks, conditioners, serums and oils - all of these have been making an impact for some time. But experts everywhere have whispered that those with a chemical formulation can actually harm hair in the long run. Wouldn’t it be ideal to factor in the gifts of nature, to nourish and care for our mane? Luckily there’s been something of a turn about of late, with organic and botanical products coming into vogue.
What Product is Best for Me?
Conditioning is, of course, an absolute essential for nourishing your hair. Applying an oil enriched conditioner every time you wash could be an invaluable step forward, so look for conditioners that use natural ingredients to deliver hair with extra nurturing hydration. If your hair really struggles, you can swap to only shampooing every other wash. Instead, just dampen hair and liberally apply conditioner, combing or brushing through. And with a natural approach, you know you’re avoiding the chemicals that can weaken strands in the long term. So you can leave it on for as long as you like!
Once in a while, though, some hair needs a special boost. Hair masks are particularly potent, to be used no more than once a week, but can really make a difference. These are especially packed with nutritious factors in high doses, to penetrate each strand and deliver loving care. These masks, or masques, often have a less fluid consistency, and are perfect for an occasional soaking treatment.
Serums and oils alike can be used in two different ways: to be washed out, or left in. Many products are adaptable, and can be applied to either dry or wet hair. Really, it depends on what you need! Even if you otherdo it, they can always be washed out. For hair that just needs an extra touch, use an oil as you would a conditioner; if your hair is very dry and breakage-prone, massage into towel-dried locks and leave to naturally dry.
What Ingredients Should I Look For?
Nature has so much to offer, and can gift your hair with a range of benefits. Hydration is a great place to start - so natural oils like Argan and Olive are fantastic. Argan in particular is also rich in vitamins, like E and A, that can help to nourish from root to tip. Hydrolyzed proteins like Wheat and Rice can reinforce each strand for extra strength. Floral extracts, such as Rose and Chamomile, are perfect for soothing and calming the frizz that dry hair often experiences.
