So many of my clients come to me saying their ends are feeling dry, their color seems to be fading more quickly and they feel they arent reaping the full benefits of their conditioner. My sole suggestion? COLD WATER.
Most of us see the “cool” button on our blow dryers, and have no clue of its use. Some also know rising their face with cool water closes their pores…well, both of these can be tied to your hair, and its condition!
Warm showers, especially this time of year are amazing! However, weather and season changes dry us out, so adapting this habit is even more crucial.
Your new shower routine:
Shampoo your hair, as usual with warm water. (Remember, shampoos purpose is to cleanse your scalp, this is where you want to concentrate the product!)
The warm water helps break down the oils.
Next, with conditoner in hand..focus this solely on your ENDS. Applying conditoner near the scalp depleats volume, and creates a build up. With conditoner still in, go about the rest of your shower duties…when it comes time to rinse, cool down that water
and wash out that product. This will help close down the cuticle of your hair, and lock that amazing moisture into your locks. You’ll get more from your conditoner & color, and over time will help manage your “frizz”. Picture your hair cuticle like mini blinds, when your cuticle is open and ruffed up…..they’ll be like a fan blowing up the opposite direction of the blinds. Gross, eh? This is where the “cool” button on your dryer comes in handy as well. To complete your look after your blow out…cool down that air and direct that air down to make hair appear shiney, smooth and managable!
Hope this helps dolls…but please dont picture punching me when that cool water hits,
your hair will appreciate it 😉
to chillin’ out,
