Keep up regular salon visits and use salon quality products at home ~
It is very important you ensure that you go to hairdressers regularly, this keeps your hair in great condition all the time. Between your appointments, use salon quality products, not supermarket products as these will do more harm than good to your hair, when it comes to colour longevity.
Beauty Therapist: Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise~
I would advise that when taking care of their skin clients at least cleanse, tone and moisturise. These are the first key steps to a skincare routine, which is then expanded to include other steps.
Use Silk/Satin pillows ~
Pam highly recommends using silk/satin pillows when sleeping. These pillows are great for your skin, as they don’t absorb skincare products and allow our skin to absorb them instead. They are great for people with sensitive and acne prone skin. These pillows are also great for your hair, helping you maintain your hairstyle for longer and stop friction on the pillow case that can cause cuticle damage.
Make sure you wash your hair at least twice a week and use a hair dryer for styling ~
It is important you are taking good care of your hair and washing it with professional shampoo is one of the simplest things you can do to keep your hair clean and in good condition. Gokul also recommends using a hairdryer as it is an efficient and quick way of drying hair dry making it ideal for product application.
Exfoliate your skin regularly ~
If you exfoliate twice a week, your skin will thankyou! Regular exfoliation removes dead skin cells and leaves skin feeling and looking smooth and refreshed, especially when followed up with a great serum, as serums penetrate deeper into the skins layers than moisturiser, so they should always be applied before your daily moisturiser.
Be gentle with your hair when towel drying~
A hair turban towel is less damaging. Unlike the traditional cotton towels we use to dry off our bodies, a hair towel wrap is made with our delicate locks in mind. Hair is very fragile when wet and coarse body towels create damaging friction when pulled across delicate wet hair. Hair turbans are also perfect to sit in while doing a home hair treatment.
Always comb your conditioner/ treatment through in the shower ~
No matter your hair type, combing through your conditioner or treatment after applying it in the shower is a gamechanger. It helps close the hair cuticles, improves colour longevity and detangles your tresses!
We hope these tips have given you a start to be able to spruce up your hair and beauty routines in time for 2022! Happy New year! All products mentioned are available online and instore.
