Hair Care Routine: Care Instructions for All Hair Types

Hair Care Routine: Care Instructions for All Hair Types

A hair care routine is unquestionably necessary because healthy, well-maintained hair is an important part of a person's image and serves as a kind of calling card.

In addition, the appearance of the hair reflects the overall health of the body. After all, if there is a lack of vitamins and nutrients in the body, the hair becomes dull, breaks, splits, and falls out quickly. It is therefore very important to choose the right hair care products according to the type of scalp. 

Normal Hair Care 

Hair Care Routine - Normal Hair Care

The main objective of normal hair care is to prevent hair damage. Use a hair dryer every 2-3 days, let it dry naturally, use conditioning products if necessary, and don't overuse the hair dryer or curling iron. 

For shampoo and conditioner to be chosen with a brand "for normal hair" or no brand at all. These cleansers will not be overloaded with special ingredients needed for other hair types. 

Oily Hair Care 

Hair Care Routine - Oily Hair Care

Oily hair poses many problems because it has a very short pollution period. Oily hair care products contain ingredients that regulate the functioning of the sebaceous glands and reduce the production of sebum. It is important to note that sebum on the scalp and hair is completely natural and has its own function. However, too much of it leads to problems such as dirt and dust build-up, a messy appearance, and the risk of developing seborrheic dermatitis. 

Oily hair and scalp cannot be "cured" but can be reduced. To do this, you should use a special shampoo marked "for oily hair," wash your hair every day or two, drink more water, and try to eat healthy foods. 

Dry Hair Care

Dry hair is the exact opposite of oily hair. Dry hair shampoos contain a high concentration of vitamins and oils that nourish and moisturize curls and the scalp. Dry hair should be washed every 4-5 days with products labeled "for dry hair". You must handle these curls with great care. It is not recommended to use a hair dryer, curling iron, or styling products, such as perms. 

To moisturize regularly, use masks, serums, and oils. 

Care for Combination Hair 

Hair Care Routine - Combination Hair Care

If you have combination hair, then you have oily roots and dry ends. To improve the condition of your curls, you should wash your hair every 2-3 days with a shampoo marked "for normal and mixed hair (mixed)", use moisturizing serums and masks, cut the ends regularly, and minimize the use of hair dryers, curling irons, and styling products. 

Care for Fine Hair 

Hair Care Routine - Fine Hair Care

Fine hair can be thick or thin, oily or dry—all of which must be taken into account at the outset, except for the very fact of fine curls. Fine, porous hair is very demanding. Avoid heavy regenerating masks and serums, but buy a conditioner to create volume. You should also choose styling products marked "for fine hair," and a hair dryer and a round comb will help create extra volume. 

Care for Damaged and Weakened Hair 

Hair Care Routine - Damaged Hair Care

Weakness, dulling, dry, split hair caused by constant styling, dyes, stress, and poor environmental conditions is a fairly common problem among modern women and men. To restore the hair, you must carefully choose the means of cleaning and care. 

Favor professional shampoos and conditioners, make moisturizing and nourishing masks, abandon hair dryers and styling polishes, and in extreme cases, when drying your hair with a hair dryer, make sure to use a thermal hair protector.

By the way, here is an effective homemade avocado mask recipe for fragile hair: Mash the avocado until it is thick. Add the egg white, a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil, and a tablespoon of yogurt. Mix all of the ingredients together until smooth. Spread the mask over the entire surface and leave it on for 30 minutes. Then rinse with cold water. 

Care for Dull Hair

Sometimes healthy childhood hair can suddenly become dull. There can be many reasons for this (from ecology to stress to health problems), but the most common are excessive stress on the hair, frequent use of a hair dryer, curling irons, and styling products. 

The right care products will restore the shine to your curls: nourishing masks, repairing serums, and natural oils. 

Care for Colored Hair 

Hair Care Routine - Colored Hair Care

Colored hair must be treated with special care. The main objective is to keep the color bright and saturated as long as possible. Here are a few tips to help you achieve this: 

  1. When painting at home, use high-quality paint, but stain rather than paint. As a gentler option, we recommend you consider dyeing, in which the coloring pigments do not penetrate the hair structure but remain on the surface. 
  2. Use shampoos and conditioners labeled "for colored hair". 
  3. Only color the curls' roots, not the entire length.
  4. Don't neglect care: masks, serums, and oils will help keep your hair healthy after coloring, which is not the most useful procedure. 
  5. Immediately after coloring, precautions should be taken as the pigment settles on the hair in the first few days: don't wash your hair during this period and don't use hair care products (they can fade the color). 
  6. Once the color is set, it's time to use active care products to keep the hair strong and shiny. Skip the styling for this time, and use masks to restore curls. 
  7. Try the popular method: vegetable oil. Olive, coconut, and almond are rich in vitamins E and F, which preserve color and nourish the hair; burdock and castor oil give strength and shine; and wheat germ oil perfectly protects and strengthens the curls. 

Care for Hair that is Prone to Falling Out 

Hair Care Routine - Falling Out Hair Care

There are several reasons why hair weakens and begins to fall out: 

External causes include using the wrong shampoo, dying frequently, abusing the hair dryer, curling iron, and styling products, sunstroke, high humidity, and cold. 

Internal causes: iron and vitamin D deficiency, hormonal problems, chronic stress, excess vitamin A, skin diseases (e.g. seborrheic dermatitis and psoriasis). It is also important to note the frequency of hair loss after childbirth. 

Hair loss is a serious problem, and we recommend that you do not treat yourself and consult a specialist. A trichologist will perform a thorough examination, prescribe procedures, and recommend specialized hair loss cleaning and care products. 

Curly Hair Care 

Hair Care Routine - Curly Hair Care

Often, owners of curly and frizzy hair envy people with straight hair because it's not as easy to maintain. That's true, but if you follow a few simple rules, you can make life significantly easier for yourself and your curls. 

Make sure your curls are nourished by using shampoos and conditioners with shea butter, jojoba oil, or macadamia oil, for example. 

The curly (wavy) type of hair is usually prone to dryness, so these curls need extra moisture. 

A wide-tooth comb will detangle your hair better than a brush, which can ruffle it. 

When styling your curls, be aware that hot air dries them out even more, so use a cold air dryer. 

It's best to choose styling products that say "for curly hair." 

Straightening irons put a strain on your curls, so it's best to straighten your hair less often and make sure you use heat protection. 

Care for Long Hair 

Hair Care Routine - Long Hair Care

Growing hair takes a lot of work. But keeping it healthy and beautiful is no less of a challenge. Long hair requires complex care, and all the effort you put into growing it out is meaningless if the curls are dry and dull, or even with split ends. Here are some tips on how to care for long hair: 

  • Trim the ends regularly. Be especially careful not to cut hair with hot scissors; it has a cumulative effect. 
  • Use a quality shampoo and conditioner that will add volume to your hair, as long curls often look a bit slick under their weight. 
  • Follow expert advice to moisturize your hair and avoid split ends. 
  • Take care of your hair: give yourself enough time to style, take your time, and don't pull your hair out in a hurry. And don't forget to choose the right comb! 
  • When picking up hair, use soft spiral elastics; they hurt the curls much less. 

Maintenance of Hair Extensions 

Hair Care Routine - Hair Extensions Maintenance

Hair extensions are not the most useful process, although they are very tempting. The fact is that the hair follicle is designed to support the weight of the hair. Artificial hair, on the other hand, creates a constant extra load on the follicle and causes hair loss. 

Therefore, it is extremely important to strengthen your own hair (in particular, using masks and serums) and to follow the rules of hair extension maintenance. 

The day after the extension, it is best not to wash your hair so that the new strands attach well to the hair. 

When you wash your hair, apply shampoo and conditioner with light movements. For a while, you should forget about massage and rubbing. 

From now on, the use of a conditioner is not only recommended but mandatory in order to facilitate combing and not pull out the hair extensions (and, at the same time, yours). 

Go through the correction and removal of the extended strands in time, don't try to do something at home. 

Moisturize your hair with special care products to strengthen your natural curls and improve the appearance of your artificial curls.

Final words:

It is important to remember that the correct definition of hair type helps determine the care carrier. Modern professional and pharmaceutical brands offer a wide range of products to solve almost any scalp problem, so that even home care has become a pleasant and effective procedure.
