3 – Use CBD-based hair products

4 – Make homemade masks between shampoos
Home mask for oily, dry, colored hair, lacking vitality or volume… there is a home mask based on natural ingredients for each of your needs! We recommend doing at least 1 per week for long term results.
5 – Use cider vinegar as a mask and/or to rinse
It’s’star ingredient for healthy hair. It brings shine, accelerates growth, prevents the phenomenon of greasy hair and is also anti-dandruff! It is thanks to the minerals and trace elements (magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium) of which it is composed. Don’t worry about the smell: it disappears as soon as the hair is dry!
We advise you to use it in rinsing water or as a mask: 100 ml of cider vinegar for 500 ml of lukewarm water. Dip your hair generously in the mixture, tie a damp towel over your head and leave on for 15 minutes. Wash and then rinse with very cold water to tighten the cuticle of the hair. Finally, let it air dry for an even more visible result.
6 – Learn to brush your hair properly
You thought you had mastered the gesture? It’s a safe bet that you will be surprised. First resolution: do not brush your wet hair as soon as you get out of the shower. This damages them much more than if you do it when they are dry or almost dry. If you are afraid of knots, be generous with the detangler when you shampoo.
Do not brush your hair mass more than twice a day (morning and evening) and preferably do it upside down. This allows distribute the sebum that protects your hair and eliminate more residue and particles accumulated during the day.
7 – Protect them as much as possible from the heat
Hair dryer, straightener or curler, sun… the hair frankly does not like the heat too much ! For all equipment (hair dryer, iron…) know that the proteins contained in the fiber begin to degrade around 140°C. Problematic when you know that most irons go up to 200°C…
Same instructions for your hair dryer: stay in constant movement and avoid nozzles that concentrate a flow of hot air. Mandatory protective spray…
8 – Do not tie your hair constantly & avoid chaining colors
Your hair needs to breathe! Tying them too frequently breaks the fiber and gives your hair a bad shape, in addition to you create pain in the skull. So tie them as little as possible in favor of hairstyles to face the heat, but not aggressive for your hair.
If you are used to coloring and/or highlighting, stop at least during the summer season. The chemicals contained in the mixtures dry out enormously and weaken the fiber. If we add, as a bonus, bathing aggressions (salt, chlorine) and stronger UV rays in summer, we obtain a cocktail of the most explosive for our hair. Let’s give them a vacation…
With these 8 basic tips, you will already see a significant change in the condition of your hair. Healthier, they will be shinier, more flexible and perhaps grow faster. You will also avoid dandruff, itching and other scalp discomforts.
