Maintain Your Hairstyle!

You know that feeling you get when you walk out of the salon with a fresh cut? Glamorous doesn’t even begin to describe it, right? That’s why it’s just as important to maintain it well. It’s quite easy to start getting split ends, damaged hair and other such issues soon after a haircut, so we thought we’d give you a few tips on maintaining your hairstyle.

Our first and most important tip is to lay off the heat styling. Blow dry and straighten/curl your hair too often and you’ll be saddled with split ends and brittle strands. Instead, get your haircut to suit your natural texture plus face shape and then let it air dry after every wash. You’ll need minimal styling for the perfect look!

We love: Long layers. They suit almost every face shape and both curly and straight hair.

Our next tip is to use the right products for your hair. Don’t just use any shampoo + conditioner that you think looks great…if you have dry hair, go for a moisturizing product. If you have curly hair, you get shampoos and conditioners that will define your curls instead of letting them get frizzy. You’ll also find a number of serums, mousses and curl enhancing creams that you can apply on damp hair before you leave it to air dry.

If you have fine, straight hair, you should look for volume-enhancing shampoos and conditioners that will add a bit of bounce to your hair and maintain its lustre. Straight hair can look oily really fast, so you might find that you don’t need to shampoo too often. Apply serum onto damp hair to smoothen flyaways!

Our final tip is to watch out for environmental damage! Harsh sunlight will definitely damage your hair, but so will humidity and more importantly, so will pollution. An easy solution to protect your hair from pollution is to maintain clean and healthy hair. Keep it well moisturized with a deep conditioning treatment so that the pollution doesn’t make it dry and brittle. On the other hand, don’t let it get greasy. Greasy hair will only get dirty with the pollution as soon as you step out.

With these few steps in mind, you’ll be able to maintain healthy hair that won’t look like it’s dying for another cut!
