When it comes to self-care, we often prioritize skincare over haircare. However, our hair deserves just as much attention as our skin. Here's why you should treat your haircare regimen like a skincare routine, and how to do it.
Just like your skin, your scalp and hair need cleansing, toning, moisturizing, and targeted treatment. But what do these steps actually mean for your hair, and how should you take care of it properly? Here are some tips and tricks for each step of your haircare routine.
We all know we need to wash our hair, but not all shampoos are created equal. Look for a shampoo that suits your hair type and scalp condition, whether that's oily or dry, dandruff-prone, or color-treated.
For a deeper cleanse, consider using a clarifying shampoo Oribe The Cleanse once a week to remove product buildup, pollution, and excess oil. Be sure to massage your scalp gently with your fingertips to promote blood circulation and unclog hair follicles. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and follow with conditioner.
Just like toner balances the pH level of your skin, a hair toner can help correct any brassiness, dullness, or unevenness in your hair color. A toner can also help closes the cuticles of your hair, which help lock in the moisture and keep it smooth.
Look for hair toners in the same shade family as your hair dye, and choose color depositing or pigment-enhancing formulas for a more intense effect. Apply the toner evenly from roots to ends, and leave it on for the recommended time before rinsing it off.
Bristol Hairdressing offers a variety of remedies. We suggest Arrojo Ultra Violet Shampoo & Conditioner to tame the brassy tones at home or schedule an appointment for consultation for Express Toning Service at one of our salons.
When it comes to moisturizing your hair, the most important thing is to trap in the moisture. After washing your hair, carefully squeeze excess water out with a towel and apply a hydrating conditioner to your strands. Leave it on for three to five minutes before rinsing it off with cool water to seal the cuticles and prevent frizz.
You can also nourish your hair with a hair mask, try Television Masque for perfect hair once a week or as needed. Focus on the ends, where your hair is the most fragile and prone to split ends.
4. Targeted Treatment
Lastly, targeted hair treatments can help you address specific hair issues, such as hair loss, thinning, breakage, or scalp irritation. Look for ingredients like biotin, keratin, collagen, or tea tree oil that can strengthen, repair, and soothe your hair and scalp. At Bristol Hairdressing we are proud to launch
our latest service menu that includes a variety of scalp and hair services customized each clients unique needs. Enjoy and array of targeted treatments, masques, scrubs, and relaxing massage. Talk to your stylist about our new Head Spa additions to our menu.
Apply the treatment directly to your scalp or hair, depending on the product's instructions. Massage it in gently and make sure it's evenly distributed. Leave it on for the recommended time before rinsing it off thoroughly.
By following these steps and treating your hair like you do your skin, you can create healthy and strong hair that is ready to face the world. Remember, proper care can't be done in just one wash or treatment, so create a routine that works for you and stick to it. Your hair will thank you for it!
Yours in good hair,
