What Are You Waiting For?
Having to wait 2-3 months for the results of miracle hair products can be extremely frustrating. That’s why we’ve found 5 habits you can do right now and incorporate into your hair care routine that will produce real outcomes.
Just as a plant needs water to grow, so does your hair! Aside from the long list of benefits that drinking water has for your health, getting in your 8 litres a day also helps keep your hair strong, healthy and hydrated.
Give Yourself A Scalp Massage
If you’re looking for something to do right this second, why not give a scalp massage a go. It may seem strange at first, but it actually has huge benefits for the health of your hair. It improves blood circulation which stimulates the cells and can help hair growth. It’s also a great step to add to your current self-care routine, there’s nothing more relaxing than a massage!
Let Your Hair Air Dry
It is common knowledge that using heat styling tools on your hair can be damaging, especially without heat protectant, but that also includes blow drying. We recommend letting your hair air dry whenever possible and taming your frizz with serums or other styling products.
Don’t Brush Wet Hair
Although it might be tempting, make sure you do not brush wet hair. When your hair is wet, it is three times more vulnerable to breakage which means it should be treated very gently. If you really need to, you can use a wide tooth comb to detangle your hair but try not to rake it through, spend the extra time to protect your hair.
Get Back to Healthy Hair With These Products
Although it may be hard to compromise on your strict hair washing schedule, we recommend that you wash your hair as infrequently as you can handle. But if you don’t want to suffer with greasy hair in-between washes, you should invest in a dry shampoo. They are perfect for keeping your hair fresh and oil-free.

Just as a face mask works to nourish and hydrate your skin, a hair mask works in a similar way to condition and improve the health of your hair. Hair masks can give you shinier, softer hair, reduce hair breakage and damage, reduce frizz and promote stronger hair. If any of these sound like something you’d like, then it’s time to get yourself a hair mask.

Hair ties are an easy hair accessory that are great to use for styling second-day hair. With your hair up in a ponytail or bun, no one will know you’re a few days past washing. But you have to be cautious as hair ties could be affecting the health of your hair. If they are too tight, hair ties can cause damage and breakage, therefore you should opt for a scrunchie. They are so much gentler on your hair and are perfect for adding a bit of colour to your look.
