With how difficult it is to have a gorgeous mane, lots of us are always on the lookout for new items that can help give our locks a boost. As shampoo and conditioner are not the only things that can help improve the quality and appearance of your tresses, it’s important to get to know your other choices. There are honestly so many available that you won’t run out of options even if you’ve already tried out some.
To help you enhance your hair care routine, we’ve rounded up a number of products that you might not have tried yet. Check them out below.
Brushing your hair while it’s wet is a major no-no but we urge you not to skip this item yet. Shampoo brushes are gaining a lot of traction lately because of how it can help in shampooing thoroughly. They’re meant to help you reach your scalp more easily so you can better clean it and deliver the ingredients of your shampoo to the area. They can also massage your scalp in the process which can then help stimulate blood flow to your scalp.
Why would you want to do any of these, you ask? Well, for starters, being able to really get into your scalp will help clean it thoroughly. Sometimes your hands aren’t enough to rub in your shampoo into your scalp and roots. Because of this, you might not be able to really wash your hair thoroughly. Your fingers might also not be enough to reach and dislodge product buildup and dead skin on your head.
A shampoo brush with its soft silicone, large, pointed bristles does a great job in reaching the scalp and in moving product around. This can make it more effective than your fingers when washing your locks.
With ample pressure, you can also use it to massage your scalp as well. Doing so will let you stimulate the skin to send more blood to the vessels in the area to help it recover from the mild trauma. As a result, the scalp will get more blood and can function at its full capacity. This is why some products also claim that such items help boost hair growth as well.
You’ll need lots of dexterity if you want to dry your hair with a blow dryer. If you don’t want to wield a brush and a blower every after washing your tresses, you can now opt to swap it out to a heated brush. Such products offer a one-step drying process as it will dry your strands as you comb through it. It’s a way more efficient option, really, when it comes to hair drying tools.
The great thing about heated brushes is that it comes in a few different varieties. Some are just shaped like a paddle brush and only offer quick and easy hair-drying. Others come in barrel brush variety so they can also give you something similar to a blowout if you know how to wield it properly.
Hair oils are hardly new but not everyone is keen on using it. For most folks, it’s counterintuitive to put oil on their tresses as they don’t like it oily. Most oils also tend to weigh down the hair so they don’t seem like the best haircare options out there.
However, some oils are actually lightweight and great for your locks. With the nutrients they contain, they can certainly help effectively moisturize your mane and enhance its health and beauty.
As the saying goes, prevention is better than cure, and it definitely applies to hair care as well. By using a primer or protectant, you can amply prepare your hair for styling or heat exposure. As a result, what you’ll do won’t cause your tresses any serious damage.
There are lots of great hair primers and protectants in the market today. Most of them are filled with moisturizing ingredients and can coat your strands properly to keep it from getting any kind of heat damage. Choose one that suits your hair type best and you’ll be good to go.
Microfiber hair towel
One of the most common causes of hair damage is improper drying. Most folks use materials that are too abrasive, causing their fragile, wet strands to become damaged and weak. Too much heat exposure fries hair strands and causes them to become dry and brittle. Improper air-drying can also hurt your tresses as it might cause over-saturation of the hair strands that result in swelling and weakened hair over time.
Using microfiber hair towels can help dry your hair faster and more effectively, making them excellent additions to your hair care tools collection. They’re easily available everywhere and are very affordable, so why not try it out and see for yourself how great they can be.
Boar bristle brush
Last but not least, boar bristle brushes are excellent alternatives to regular hair brushes for their choice of bristle material. Not only do they minimize friction but the boar bristles also help better distribute the natural oils from your scalp to the tips of your hair. This makes it a very useful tool for those with curly and dry tresses.
