We recently shared our favorite hair masks to get you on your way to gorgeous hair. But did you know that hair treatments can come in more than one form? Lots of hair care products today contain active ingredients to help treat your hair, so whether you’re using a mask or shampoo, you can still reap the benefits. Here are some of our favorite new ways to treat your hair, so you can supercharge your entire hair care routine.
We won’t judge you for thinking of shampoo as just a cleanser, without any actual benefits. There’s a plethora of shampoos for every hair type, and many of them actually infuse your hair with beneficial ingredients. However, you may want to think twice if you love that squeaky clean feeling you get after washing. That actually comes from stripping your hair of its natural oils, which is a no-no if you want shiny, soft locks. Stick to shampoos that will gently cleanse, without stripping your hair, like Bliss lemon + Sage Supershine Shampoo, which is gentle enough to use every day. It also contains wheat protein and anti-static ingredients, which are super important for glossy, frizz-free hair.
2. Sun Protection
Now that the weather is cooler, we want to spend all of our time outside. The problem is that our hair is often neglected when it comes to SPF. Strong sun exposure can dry out your hair and scalp, fade your hair color and make your hair dull and brittle. Regular sunscreens don’t work for hair, so it’s important to use a protective product specifically for hair. SACHAJUAN Hair in the Sun will keep your hair protected from the sun, sand, and sea. It also contains their special Ocean Silk Technology for extra pampering.
3. Hair Loss Prevention
Hair loss is one of the most common complaints that we hear. Combine hard water with a stressful lifestyle and you’ve got a recipe for hair disaster. It’s important to look after your scalp and hair, as keeping them strong and healthy can help prevent hair loss and encourage new growth. Revivogen PRO Volumizing Hair Mask isn’t your average hair mask. It is packed full of botanical extracts that will strengthen every single strand, giving your hair tons of bouncy body and volume. It also contains aloe vera to hydrate your locks without weighing them down.
4. Hair Serum
Repeat after us, ‘always use a serum. ALWAYS’. Just as the right serum can change your skin, the right hair serum will not only treat and repair your hair, but also protect it from heat, fight frizz, add shine and make you look like you’ve just stepped out of a hair commercial. You can use most serums on damp hair, after washing and towel drying, and you can also use a drop after styling to keep your hair shiny and frizz-free. It’s important to find a serum that works with your hair type and texture. We like Braziliss Revitalizing Luminosity Keratin Serum, it is made with keratin to fill out any damaged or overly-porous parts of the hair, making it stronger and sleeker.
