HOW TO TAME THE TANGLE
SKIN DETOX, DIET DETOX AND NOW HAIR DETOX? YEP, IT’S A THING, AND YOU’LL LOVE IT
There’s a lot of talk these days about living by the 80:20 rule. In other words, most days we eat superfood, salads and go to the gym but occasionally we choose to eat cupcakes and stay in our PJS. That’s balance.
The challenge in our busy lives is often maintaining it.
There’s nothing worse than the feeling of waking up the day after you’ve fallen off the superfood wagon, had an epic night on the tiles with friends, or just feel sluggish and off colour because life has been a little off.
So it’s good to know that turning to a body detox will help get you back on track.
The same principle applies to your hair. After the glitter and glue of festival hair, a party-season silicone-styling binge or an Australian summer filled with humidity, chlorine, sea water and sunshine, the summer hair struggles are real.
Now that summer has come to an end, your hair can regain its equilibrium with a high-performance clarifying treatment.
Just like we need to exfoliate our faces regularly, we also need to give our hair and scalp an exfoliation, too.
So what does this really mean for you and your hair? Following the 80:20 rule and breaking your usual hair regime, here are a few tips to restore, revive and detoxify your hair.
Swap out your regular shampoo for a detoxing one and add it into your routine every third wash. This will banish the dull, lifeless look. For the best results, always partner with a drench of moisture in the form of a leave-in conditioner.
If you’re a regular swimmer, a fitness fanatic or live somewhere with chlorine present in your water supply, more regular use of a detoxing shampoo will help remove chlorine and sweat from your hair and scalp.
If you’re like me and get your hair coloured regularly, swap your regular shampoo for a clarifying shampoo to reduce build-up and enable treatment products or hair colour to penetrate the hair shaft more effectively.
Just as you might add a mask into your skincare routine to address dry skin or clogged pores, adding a mask treatment into your hair-care regime will give your hair a deep, hydrating moisture boost.
Leave on for five to 20 minutes. If your hair needs regular attention, leave it on for the entire 20 minutes.
When you need to even out moisture levels in the hair, transform the appearance of dry ends or restore hydration and moisture, use a mask.
Like a facial where we scrub, cleanse and moisturise our faces, the same principle applies to our hair. It’s never too late to start your hair detox, cleanse and moisturising routine.
