We got hold of trichologist Dubai and jotted down some awesome tips to maintain and take care of their hair. Let’s dive straight into it.
- Pre shampooing routine
Before shampooing your hair, apply diluted apple cider vinegar to your scalp and leave it for about fifteen minutes before washing it off with shampoo.
- Apply shampoo to roots only
Only apply the shampoo to the roots of your hair. Do not focus it on the ends as it will strip away your natural hair oils and make your hair dry out.
- Avoid sulfates
Check out the ingredient’s list on the back of your shampoo. Avoid any shampoos containing sulfates and alcohol as they strip your hair of essential oils and promote breakage.
- Wet hair is fragile
Do not brush wet hair as it is more prone to breakage and fall out.
- Honey is your hair’s best friend
Get hold of organic honey. It has millions of anti bacterial and moisturizing properties. It will not only hydrate your hair but will also get rid of any scalp infections. Don’t worry about it sticking to your hair; you can wash it off with cold water.
- Cold water for shine
Do not ever wash your hair with warm water. It will dry out your hair. Use lukewarm water instead and incorporate cold water for final rinse.
- Coconut oil
According to trichologist Dubai, coconut oil is the best oil from treating dry and damaged hair. Use it once a week and massage your hair for about twenty minutes and follow up with your regular shampooing and conditioning routine.
- Silk all the way
If you are a fan of silky, smooth locks, invest in a silk pillow. Sleeping on cotton pillows can cause excessive dryness while silk pillows help to seal in the moisture of your hair.
- Avoid hot tools
Hot tools can promote breakage and split ends and eventually lead to hair fall. Always ensure using a heat protectant before reaching out towards straighter or curler.
- Condition prior to swimming
Trichologist Dubai suggest using a conditioner on your hair prior to swimming as it is one of the major causes of hair damage.
