Hair treatment can be confusing and frustrating, particularly when you think you’ve finally found something that really works. It is inevitable and exasperating, but there is a better way to make your hair care a little easier (so that you don’t continually stare longingly at those razor blades). Most hair treatments are not meant to last longer than one week or so, and many people spend several days trying desperately to find one that will help them. While it definitely adds another task to your daily beauty regimen, hair treatments and masks can transform your dull hair into a voluminous, beautiful mane, and make you an enviable shampoo ad-worthy hair-mane. To get the best results from a hair treatment, you need to know the right tools, ingredients, and techniques for transforming your dull locks into a shiny and lustrous locks of hair.
Shampoo is the most common hair treatment, and you can find a variety of different types of shampoos in your local supermarket or department store. Just about all hair treatment products contain either chemical-based or herbal hair products, and it is best to avoid harsh shampoos as they may cause more damage than good. You should always use shampoo that is mild enough for your skin type, and if you have sensitive skin, try using only mild products. It is also advisable to stay away from sulfate-based shampoos and conditioners because they can actually dry out the hair. Using a wide tooth comb to pare your hair after every wash can help to improve the look and feel of your hair, and it will save you a lot of time as well. After every washing, always give your hair some time to “rest” and restore moisture, and you will notice a dramatic change in your locks in no time.
A few weeks ago, my friend asked me to recommend the best hair treatment she can use on her short, fine locks. I told her I’d suggest taking a look at what she uses at home. It doesn’t sound that exciting, but I was surprised by how effective it was! She started with a natural herbal shampoo with a great scent and gentle cleanser that makes your scalp feel like you’re brushing the ends of your head, then followed up with a mask that helps lock in the scalp moisture and helps reduce split ends. She was pleasantly surprised by the results, and is now using her homemade conditioner on a daily basis and hasn’t looked back since. I gave her the advice!
