7 Amazing Tips for Incredible Hair [Singapore Edition]

1. Are you washing your hair the right way?

Believe it or not, there’s more to washing your hair than just lathering, rinsing, and repeating. If you want to keep your locks looking healthy and vibrant, it’s crucial to follow the proper techniques. Here’s what you need to know to ensure you’re doing it right:

  • Water temperature matters: Using lukewarm water is ideal, as hot water can strip your hair of its natural oils, leading to dryness and damage.
  • Be gentle: Don’t scrub your hair aggressively. Instead, massage your scalp gently with your fingertips to encourage blood flow and remove dirt and oil.
  • Choose the right shampoo: Select a shampoo that’s formulated for your hair type and addresses your specific needs, such as color protection, moisture, or volume.
  • Don’t forget to condition: Apply conditioner to the mid-lengths and ends of your hair, avoiding the roots, to prevent weighing your hair down.
  • Rinse thoroughly: Make sure you rinse out all the shampoo and conditioner to avoid product buildup, which can lead to dull, lifeless hair.

Remember, washing your hair the right way is the foundation for achieving that gorgeous, healthy mane you’ve always wanted. So take a little extra time and care during your next shower, and watch your hair transform for the better!

2. Are you protecting your hair from the sun?

Just like your skin, your hair needs protection from the sun’s harmful rays. Prolonged exposure to the sun can cause your hair to become dry, brittle, and damaged. So, let’s discuss some effective ways to shield your hair from the sun and keep it looking fabulous all year round:

  • Wear a hat or a scarf: Covering your head with a wide-brimmed hat or a lightweight scarf not only protects your hair but also keeps your scalp safe from sunburn.
  • Use a UV protection hair spray: Look for hair care products that contain UV filters or sun protection ingredients to help guard your hair against sun damage.
  • Opt for hairstyles that minimize exposure: Wearing your hair in a bun, braid, or a ponytail can limit the surface area exposed to the sun and help prevent damage.
  • Stay hydrated: Drinking plenty of water is essential for your overall health, including your hair. Keeping your body hydrated helps maintain your hair’s natural moisture balance.
  • Deep-condition regularly: Sun exposure can make your hair dry and brittle. Use a deep conditioning treatment or a hair mask at least once a week to replenish lost moisture and keep your hair healthy.

3. Are you blow drying your hair correctly? 

Blow drying your hair is a quick and easy way to style your hair, but are you doing it correctly? Improper technique can lead to damage, frizz, and a lackluster finish. Here are some tips for blow drying your hair the right way:

  1. Prep your hair: Use a heat protectant spray or serum to protect your hair from heat damage. Towel dry your hair to remove excess water before blow drying.
  2. Use the right tools: Choose a hair dryer with multiple heat and speed settings. Use a round brush to help smooth and straighten your hair.
  3. Section your hair: Divide your hair into sections and focus on one section at a time. This will make it easier to manage and ensure that each section is fully dried.
  4. Keep your distance: Hold the hair dryer at least six inches away from your hair to prevent overheating and damage.
  5. Finish with cool air: Use the cool shot button on your hair dryer to blast cool air over your hair once it’s dry. This will help set the style and reduce frizz.

By following these tips, you can achieve a salon-worthy blowout at home without damaging your hair. Proper technique is key to achieving a beautiful and healthy-looking finish.

4. Are you keeping to the good rules tool? 

Think of your hair like your skin – what you put on it is going to change it. Investing in right quality products and tools will keep hair looking and feeling healthy and strong.

“People are cheap with what they use on hair but wouldn’t dream of treating their cashmere jumper in that way,” says hairstylist and Redken Ambassador Tracy Cunningham.

Good brushes are worth investing in and although may have a heftier price tag than others, if they are looked after they will last forever. Keep your brushes clean and free of dead hair, oil and product buildup by washing them into a mixture of baking soda and warm water once per month.

Well, business experts assert that less is more. "Over-washing may be harmful to your hair, particularly if it's bleached, coloured, has been treated or is naturally quite dry or sterile," states Steve Rowbottom, co-director of Westrow.

5. Are you applying the hair conditioner the right way? 

Hair conditioner is an essential part of any hair care routine. It helps to moisturize, soften, and protect your hair. But are you applying it correctly? Here are some tips for getting the most out of your hair conditioner:

  1. Start with clean, wet hair: Shampoo your hair first to remove any dirt, oil, or product buildup. Then, rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out excess water.
  2. Use the right amount: The amount of conditioner you use depends on the length and thickness of your hair. Generally, a quarter-sized amount is enough for short hair, while longer hair may require more.
  3. Apply from mid-length to ends: Focus the conditioner on the mid-length to ends of your hair, where it’s the driest and most damaged. Avoid applying it to your scalp, as it can weigh down your hair and make it look greasy.
  4. Comb it through: Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to evenly distribute the conditioner through your hair. This will ensure that every strand is coated and nourished.
  5. Leave it on for a few minutes: Let the conditioner sit on your hair for a few minutes before rinsing. This will give it time to penetrate and hydrate your hair.
  6. Rinse thoroughly: Rinse your hair thoroughly with cool water to remove all traces of conditioner. This will help to seal the cuticles and lock in moisture.

By following these tips, you can achieve soft, healthy, and manageable hair. Proper application of hair conditioner is essential for maintaining the overall health and appearance of your hair.

Think of your hair like your skin - what you put on it is going to change it. Investing in right quality products and tools will keep hair looking and feeling healthy and strong.

6. Are you using the right brushing technique for your hair? 

No-one needs a matted mess for a mane, so brushing is always required, but don’t tear during your locks. Based on Guy, being too aggressive will only result in harm, and no-one wants to compete with fluffy, ends.

So what’s the ideal technique?

“Brushing in the roots causes damage — always brush from the bottom and work up,” guides hairstylist Tracey Cunningham, especially in the event you’ve got long hair. And the tools you use should change whenever your hair is moist to prevent snapping and inactive.

“When your hair is soaking wet, it is weaker, brittle and more vulnerable to breakage,” says hairstylist Nicky Clarke. Save the brush for when your hair is dry and put money into a wide-tooth comb. The teeth are made to glide through wet hair – especially if coarse, wavy or curly – much than brush may, and there will be a lot less damage to contend with if it is dry.

7. Do you invest in the full range of hair care products?

Hair care is essential for maintaining healthy, shiny, and manageable hair. However, it’s not just about using any old shampoo and conditioner. Investing in the full range of hair care products can make a significant difference in the overall health and appearance of your hair. Here’s why:

  1. Different products serve different purposes: Shampoo and conditioner are just the basics. There are a variety of hair care products that are designed to address specific concerns, such as dryness, damage, and frizz. Using the right product for your hair type and concerns can make a big difference in the results you achieve.
  2. Complete hair care routine: A complete hair care routine involves more than just washing and conditioning your hair. It includes products such as hair masks, serums, and oils, which provide deep nourishment, hydration, and protection.
  3. Improved hair health: Investing in the full range of hair care products can improve the overall health of your hair. By using the right products, you can strengthen your hair, reduce breakage, and promote hair growth.
  4. Better styling results: Proper hair care products can help to prep your hair for styling, making it easier to achieve the results you want. Products such as heat protectants and styling sprays can help to protect your hair from damage while giving it the hold and texture you desire.

In conclusion, investing in the full range of hair care products can have a significant impact on the health and appearance of your hair. By using the right products for your hair type and concerns, you can achieve better results, improve hair health, and enjoy a complete hair care routine.
