A Promise To My HairWednesday, August 20, 2014
Hair I know I have neglected you lately and you are not your usual shiny self. I have put you through a lot of stripping and dyeing to get my blonde back and haven't given you the love and nurturing you need.
So hair here is my promise to you
* I will Always do a final rinse with cool water.
I'm not a fan of pouring cold water on my head especially in the winter months but this does seem to work and make my hair look less dull. Cool water closes the cuticle so moisture will be sealed in.
* I will be extra careful when you're wet.
Wet hair is so much easier to damage than dry hair. Avoid brushing with a normal brush choosing to use a wide tooth comb instead.
*I will not rub you to death
I am a bugger for rubbing my hair with a towel to make it dryer before I go to bed so I don't get a wet pillow. Instead lightly squeezing the moisture out will prevent breakage.
* I will use a weekly hair mask
I don't know why I stopped doing this I always did this with an argon oil based hair mask once a week and really felt the benefit then one day I didn't repurchase. Masks make my hair feel stronger and shiner and more hydrated.
* Get you cut regularly
Now this is my worst crime I can go over 6 months without a cut. I have a fear I will end up coming out with a 90s bob. I need to man up and not feel sick with every snip.
Now I do 95% of the time let my hair dry naturally and hardly ever use heated stylers unless I'm off for a night on the town ( hardly ever I've turned into a right bore!) but I promise to use a good heat defense spray when I do.
So there I have wrote it all down so I have no excuse to not follow it. Lets see how long it lasts!
Wish me Luck!!!!
