Six Everyday Hair Mistakes You are Probably Guilty of Making
Change your habits to enjoy great hair
Your hair is your crowning glory, and who doesn’t want their hair to look its best? Healthy, shining tresses take a bit of hard work – we agree – but do you know that there are certain things you might be doing unknowingly that are damaging your hair!
Read on to find out the six everyday hair mistakes are standing between you and gorgeous, healthy hair:
1) You are washing your hair too often
While it may seem like the smart thing to do, the fact of the matter is that washing your hair too often can strip it of its natural protective oils and leave it dry and brittle. Instead of washing your hair every day, we suggest that you wash it once in three to four days, depending upon how quickly your hair starts to look greasy. If you like washing your hair often, we recommend that you go in for a really gentle shampoo instead of one with strong cleansers that can strip your hair of its natural oils.
WOW Skin Science range of shampoos has been formulated to deliver gentle cleansing with intensive nourishment of the very best natural oils and other bioactives. Choose the one that matches your hair needs the best.
2) You are using hair care products with drying agents
If you think that nothing you do and no matter what products you use, your hair never really looks shiny and healthy, the fault might lie with the products you are using. If your hair products have drying agents like sulphates, salt and alcohol, their effect will show up as dry and brittle tresses. Switch to sulphate-free shampoos and conditioners without harmful ingredients and see the difference for yourself.
All hair products under the WOW Skin Science range – shampoos, hair conditioner, hair oil and hair revitalizer – are totally free of harmful sulphates and parabens. The They are instead enriched with bioactive ingredients, plant extracts, seed oils and essential oils to ensure that your tresses receive the best and the healthiest treatment possible. We recommend that you follow up your shampoo with WOW Hair Conditioner for soft, shiny hair – and that brings us to our next point.
3) You are applying conditioner incorrectly
Your conditioner provides a much-needed dose of moisture to your hair after you have cleansed it with shampoo. However, many of us apply conditioner incorrectly, using it like we would use a shampoo. To avoid that mistake, pour a dollop of the conditioner on your palm. Massage well into damp hair and scalp using fingertips, working from roots to tips. Leave for 4-5 minutes. Rinse thoroughly.
We recommend the WOW Skin Science Hair Conditioner that is chock-a-block full of nourishing ingredients to restore damaged hair. Enriched with cold pressed Virgin Coconut & Avocado Oils, Wheat Protein, this conditioner helps revive weak and dull hair and is suitable for all hair types!
4) You are not protecting your hair from the sun
Did you think that only your skin needs sun protection? It’s a common misconception that many hold. However, in reality, the harmful rays of the sun can adversely affect your hair’s health, just like they do for your skin. The sun’s UVA and UVB rays can lead to loss of moisture, making your hair appear dull and lifeless and leading to split ends and discoloration. To protect your locks, wrap a scarf around your head before stepping out in the sun and invest in a shampoo with SPF or sun protection factor.
We recommend WOW Skin Science Satin Sunshade Sunscreen Shampoo that contains natural micro particles to form a shield around your hair and shield it from the sun’s UVA and UVB rays. It helps prevent discoloration and dullness due to exposure to the sun and prevents hair breakage, leading to healthier and stronger hair.
5) You do not oil your hair
Oiling may seem like a chore that keeps you at home but trust us; regular oil massages not only improve your hair’s texture and fight dryness but also deal with common complaints like split ends and frizz. In fact, contrary to popular belief, oil massages are also important for people with oily hair and scalps because they improve blood circulation and lead to healthier hair.
We recommend WOW 10 in 1 Miracle Hair Oil which is suitable for all hair types and made of all-natural ingredients such as Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Moroccan Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Safflower Oil, Bhringraj Extract, Vitamin E plus Rosemary & Tea Tree Essential Oils. All the seed oils in this formulation are cold pressed for maximum nourishment. This oil is also totally free of pore-clogging mineral oils to ensure your hair are not just lubricated but nourished.
6) You do not apply a hair revitalizer or serum before heat styling hair
First of all, you should avoid heat styling as much as possible as it really dries out your hair. If you must occasionally heat style hair, do apply a few drops of a quality hair revitalizer or serum on to hair before curling, straightening or blow drying your hair. Also, rather than conventional blow dryers, use ionic hair dryers for limiting damage further. A hair revitalizer is good for everyday use too.
WOW 10 in 1 Miracle Hair Revitalizer is a revolutionary product which has 10 benefits in 1 single bottle. Enriched with Extracts of Safflower, Amla, Horse Chestnut, Rosemary, Tea Tree & Lemon, plus Vitamins A, B5, B7, E & F, it delivers rich benefits like stronger roots, less split ends, improved lipid barrier of hair strands, visibly improved texture, dandruff elimination, hair breakage protection, hair fall control, higher luster plus intense hydration for total revival of hair.
