When is the last time you bought yourself some new hair care products? As you age, your hair changes, and your hair goals might change. In addition to keeping up with a good hair care routine, you should change up your products with the seasons or as your hair goals and issues evolve. It is very likely that you don’t have the same hair concerns in the summer and in the wintertime, so your products should really switch up with the seasons. Let’s go over some products that you might want to try. Treat yourself this Valentine’s Day with some new hair care products.
What is your usual styling routine? Have you changed your look in the past decade? It might be time! When you go to your hair stylist, ask for recommendations on a cut, style, and color that would look best on you. They can also recommend products that will help you achieve your best-looking hair.
Do you have dandruff or an itchy scalp? This is a very common problem in the winter months when the air is very dry, depending on where you live. Some people also experience dandruff year-round. If you are only treating it with anti-dandruff shampoo, you might need an update. Fortunately, now there are scalp scrubs and rinses that will help get rid of dandruff and other buildup. You can also get serums that help soothe your scalp and prevent dandruff from returning.
Look into new styling products like hair dryers, straighteners, curling irons, and wavers. Technology has evolved a lot over the last few years and now many of these products are very easy to use and gentler on your hair. However, you will still need a heat protectant spray, especially if you use these tools every day or use a high heat setting. Blow dryer brushes are also back in style. They can dry and style your hair all at once and are great for giving yourself a blowout at home. It can also be a time saver to dry and style your hair at the same time. Finish with a shine spray or marula oil mist to de-frizz and add shine and softness to your hair.
Is your hair thinning or are you experiencing hair loss? It is a new year and it is finally time to get the hair you deserve! A regrowth treatment can help finally regrow your hair with minimal effort. Perhaps you would want to try this version that contains minoxidil, which is the only FDA-approved ingredient for hair loss in women. Hair supplements are also a great way to get extra nutrients that can help grow your hair longer and stronger if that is your goal this year. This supplement contains lots of vitamins, nutrients, and a powerful antioxidant called curcumin, which is found in turmeric. It helps to grow your hair faster, longer, and stronger. While you work on treating your hair, you will also want to switch out your shampoo, conditioner, styling spray, mousse, serums, and combs to get the best version for your thinning hair. With all of these products working together, you will see thicker, fuller hair in no time!
If your hair has been looking and feeling a bit dry and damaged, treat yourself to a hair mask. You can make one yourself with ingredients found in your kitchen or you can purchase one. There are many varieties out there made for every hair type. You can find DIY hair mask recipes online and even on this blog. If you have color-treated hair, make sure all of these products are safe for your hair to avoid damage. A mask can also help brighten your color and give you more time in between hair appointments.
In between washes, you should use a dry shampoo. It is not best to wash your hair every day or you will strip your hair of its natural oils. The only exception is if you have very oily hair or work in a field where your hair gets very sweaty and dirty every day. There are many types of dry shampoos out there including sprays and powders. It all comes down to a personal preference, whether or not you want it to have a fragrance, and the type of dry shampoo. For instance, there are dry shampoos that will give you volume and others that will smooth frizz. If you have frizzy hair, you can also get rid of it with serums, oils, and leave-in conditioners.
Don’t just treat yourself to hair care products, but products that you use after the shower like towels and brushes. If you haven’t switched up your brush in a while, it could be hiding dirt, oil, lint, and more. Of course, you should clean it frequently, but sometimes it is just time for a new brush. A silk pillowcase can be a great investment because it can help keep your hair smooth and tangle-free while you sleep. For the shower, a scalp massager can help invigorate your hair follicles and keep your blood circulated, which will help your hair grow faster. A scalp massager can also help get rid of buildup and give you an extra clean scalp.
While you’re at it, you can look for new hair styling products like scrunchies, barrettes, clips, headbands, scarves, and more. Scrunchies are definitely back in style and are a great way to hold your hair back. Hats are also a great investment to protect your hair from the elements or just hide a bad hair day.
