Do’s and Don’ts

WKND - - Hair Care -

It is very im­por­tant to pro­tect your hair from the heat to achieve healthy hair. Try to avoid de­ter­gents, poly­mers, dam­ag­ing al­co­hols, and am­mo­nia which are found in tra­di­tional sham­poos in the form of am­mo­nium lau­ryl sul­fate or sodium lau­ryl sul­fate.

These in­gre­di­ents are added to make the sham­poo feel thicker and richer in your hand, and also to cre­ate the foam­ing lather that peo­ple have come to ex­pect. These in­gre­di­ents work against your hair and will only dry it out in­stead.

Use prod­ucts with nat­u­ral oils, like co­conut, jo­joba, etc. Ap­ply a light nour­ish­ing con­di­tioner to the ends of your hair so the strands aren’t weighed down by any ex­tra prod­uct. If you feel your hair is dry, use a hair mask once a week to mois­turise.

Dur­ing the night, loosely tie your hair back. It is also worth in­vest­ing in a 100 per cent silk pil­low­case that causes less fric­tion and static to the hair, which cre­ates less tan­gling when you move around dur­ing the night. This also de­creases hair fall.
