Today is International Yoga Day, a celebration of the practice of yoga that’s a physical, mental, and spiritual practice that originated in India. Whether you’re a yoga aficionado or you’ve only attended one or two classes over the years, International Yoga Day is a great time to be inspired to take on more mindful habits. Particularly, more mindful hair habits! Mindful hair habits come in all shapes and sizes and they each have their own merits. Today, we’re highlighting a few ways to be more mindful with your hair habits. This includes ways to take care of your scalp, how to ensure proper hair hydration and some of our best heat protection tips!
International Yoga Day: Mindful Hair Habits
1. Take care of your scalp.
The health of your hair starts at your scalp and making time for scalp care is essential. Nexxus Clean & Pure Scalp Scrub is one of our go-to products to use for exactly this purpose. This scrub gently exfoliates your scalp and gets rid of dead skin cells and product buildup. It’s a few minutes of mindfulness and meditation that allow you to be present in an intentional act of self-care.
2. Make time for hydration.
Hydration in the form of a hair mask is another way to practice mindfulness in honor of International Yoga Day. Love Beauty and Planet Blooming Color Murumuru Butter & Rose 2-Minute Magic Masque provides a strong boost of moisture in just a few minutes. It’s another opportunity to practice mindful hair habits and sit for a few minutes while the product works its magic.
3. Protect your hair against the sun.
Lastly, mindfulness also comes into play in terms of the health of your hair. We often suggest TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray to women who want to protect their hair against heat. You can apply this product before you head out into the sun and before you use hot tools to style your hair.
Happy International Yoga Day! Enjoy the day with some yoga practice and by indulging in one of these mindful hair habits.
