Easy Steps in Any Hair Care Routine
No matter your hair type, a good hair care routine consists of keeping your hair clean, moisturized, and nourished. Here’s what you need to do to achieve that.
Washing your hair regularly helps get rid of dirt and product buildup. It also removes excess oil, keeping your hair from becoming overly greasy. Regular cleansing also helps protect your scalp from itching and irritation.
However, overwashing your hair can strip it of its natural oils and make it dry. Your hair type determines how frequently you should wash your hair. If your hair is fine and thin, wash it daily, as oil can easily weigh it down. Same with straight hair because oil can easily travel along your hair shaft. Your strands can become overly greasy if you often skip hair washes.
Editor’s tip: We recommend using Dove Straight & Silky Keratin Tri-Silk Serum Shampoo to keep your hair clean and smooth. It has Keratin Tri-Silk Serum, a combination of keratin, fiber actives, and serum ingredients that instantly repair damage, deeply nourish and protect your hair, and leave it extra beautiful. This shampoo also has Amino Essence that boosts hair health and deeply nourishes up to the core of your hair fibers.
On the other hand, wavy and curly hair types are prone to dryness and frizz. And unlike straight hair, oil travels slowly down the hair shaft. You may skip a wash to let your natural oils moisturize your hair. However, it may not be ideal in a hot and humid country like ours. The key is to use a shampoo that packs a lot of moisturizing ingredients, so your waves and curls don’t get dry even if you wash your hair often.
Editor’s tip: Try Love Beauty and Planet Murumuru Butter & Rose Blooming Colour Shampoo for your curly hair. It has murumuru butter, which is known for its deeply moisturizing properties, so it suits hair types that need all the moisture they can get. It also leaves your hair with the fragrance of Bulgarian rose petals.
For color-treated hair, you need a shampoo designed to fight color fading. After all, you wouldn’t want your new hue to be washed down the drain, right?
Editor’s tip: Keep your hair color vibrant with the help of TRESemmé Pro-Color Series Color Radiance Shampoo. Its anti-fade technology works by creating a waterproof film that coats your strands. This film seals in and locks the color in your hair fibers, so you get to enjoy your hue for twice longer. This shampoo also has jojoba oil to keep your hair moisturized and shiny.
This step brings back moisture that got stripped off at the shampooing stage. Conditioning helps your hair become smooth, shiny, and manageable. And when your hair is well-moisturized, it is less likely to break and get damaged due to everyday brushing and styling.
Editor’s tip: Dry hair tends to be brittle and prone to hair fall, so always condition your hair after shampooing. We recommend Cream Silk Hair Fall Defense Tri-Oleo Conditioner. It is infused with Tri-Oleo Complex, which consists of oils known to help make hair stronger, smoother, and full of life. This conditioner also strengthens your hair from the inside out to protect it against hair fall.
If your hair has been extremely damaged due to styling, bleaching, and various chemical treatments, use a conditioner for damaged hair. Aside from moisture, your hair needs ingredients that repair hair and protect it from future damage.
Editor’s tip: Nurse damaged hair back to its healthy-looking state by using Dove Keratin Repair 1 Minute Serum Conditioner. It has keratin-infused serum capsules that go deep into your strands to repair damage from within. With regular use, it leaves your hair recovered, beautiful, and resilient in just one minute.
After washing your hair, gently detangle your hair with a wide-tooth comb. You may also use your fingers. Detangle the tips first before going to the upper sections of your hair to minimize tugging and pulling that may lead to breakage.
Let your hair dry naturally to minimize heat damage. However, if you need to blow-dry your hair, set your hairdryer to its medium heat setting, as high temperatures can leave your hair extremely dry and brittle.
Complement your shampoo-and-conditioner duo with hair treatment products that help you achieve your hair goals. Want smoother and shinier hair? Use a treatment mask that reduces frizz. Got dry hair? Pamper your tresses with a deep-conditioning treatment. You can even use treatment products infused with vitamins for more nourished hair!
Editor’s tip: Protect your hair from styling damage by using Dove Advanced Keratin Treatment Mask. It combines the power of a keratin shot with niacinamide and vitamin complex to not only repair hair but also protect it from the damaging effects of everyday styling. To get the best results, use this treatment mask weekly.
