Haircare tips to spoil yourself this self-care Sunday

To all the ladies who have been craving a little TLC, this one’s for you. Although you shouldn’t need an excuse to pamper, a good self-care Sunday definitely allows you to take advantage of some spoils! And why not start from the top?

To get you started we’ve put together a list of our fave haircare tips for you to try this self-care Sunday.

Read on to find out more.


Hair Mask

Although you’ve probably heard it plenty of times, we’re here to give you one more reminder…Hair masks are bae! They provide your hair with intense moisture, as well as strengthen and protect your strands. Which is why using a hair mask is one of our top tips. Apply your hair mask, request your favourite cup of tea or coffee and enjoy a relaxing Sunday — fingers crossed it will become a self-care Sunday routine!

For maximum smoothness and a healthy shine we recommend the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Treatment Mask enriched with Marula Oil.

To help repair and strengthen hair, the Dove Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask is definitely a pro hair mask. It’s formulated with Nurti-Keratin Actives to deeply nourish and restore your hair’s proteins — leaving you with fab, healthy hair.


Deep Cleanse

Another great way to start your self-care Sunday haircare treat is with a good deep cleanse. Specifically if your scalp has been feeling itchy or flaky, a good nourishing shampoo and condition often does the trick.

Dandruff can be a real buzz-kill, so if you’re experiencing it and haven’t had to the time to treat it, trying the Organics Anti-Dandruff 2-in-1 Shampoo is a top haircare tip.

If you’re looking for a refreshing cleanser that’s also packed with nourishment, our pick is the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo.


Scalp Massage

In addition to treating your hair with products, we also have a few simple tips that don’t require much at all. One of them being a regular scalp massage, and what better time to start this than this weekend? Massaging your scalp helps to relieve tension and improve blood flow. Gently rub your scalp in circles, paying special attention to your hairline — not only will this feel great, but the blood flow encourages hair growth and a healthy scalp.


Satin pillowcases and bonnets

Another simple haircare tip is to sleep with a satin pillowcase or a satin bonnet. The satin is much smoother than a cotton pillowcase which means there will be less friction on your hair (which often causes unnecessary breakage whilst sleeping). A bonus is that they are comfy and will leave you sleeping like a queen.


Fun Protective Styles

Lastly, when it comes to styling your hair, haircare also plays a part. Try a few fun protective hairstyles like braids or twists that not only look cute, but will help to shield your hair from those cool breezes that come with the changing weather.
