Developing a Hair Care Routine That Works for You

Jul 8, 2008
Having great hair is something everybody wants to achieve, and the key to truly awesome locks is a good hair care routine that you can stick to every day. As the back of a shampoo bottle once told me, with hair care, every day is everything. You cannot use a decent hair care routine once or twice a week and expect the fabulous results that you would get if you did it every single day. In fact, it is very similar to going to the gym. If you went to the gym once a week and expected a six pack of abs in three months, you would be sorely disappointed. The same is true with that of hair care.

To figure out which kind of hair care regimen you should be partaking in, you should first get a comprehensive consultation with your hair stylist. Most salons often offer this service free of charge, with the expectation that you get your hair done there. Make sure to bring in a list of questions, so you do not forget anything. For example, ask if your hair is brittle or overly damaged. If the answer is yes, ask the stylist what kind of hair care products you should use to remedy the situation, and how often you should use them.

While you are having the hair care discussion with your stylist, make sure that you go over everything you do to your hair. When you blow dry it, how high is the heat setting? When you flat iron or curl it, how hot are the tools? Should you decrease the heat, or is it okay to turn it up a little bit so you spend less time doing your hair? Also, do not forget to ask about deep conditioning. You should check to see if you should do it in the first place, and if so, how frequently.

Once you have all of the information you need, one of the only things you have left to do is purchase the products you need. Again, your stylist should be able to help you out in this arena. Make sure you pick out all of your hair care needs, including shampoos, conditioners and styling aides. After you have selected and bought the hair care items, ask your stylist to show you how to use them and follow his or her advice each day, every day.
