Is Your Hair Care Routine Stuck In A Rut? Help is at Hand From Coco Hair Salon in Eastbourne
You may be a fan of the Marie Kondo method or be a follower of Mrs Hinch, but how good are you at giving your personal care routine a spring clean?
To keep your hair looking healthy and feeling great, it is important to refresh your hair care routine regularly. At our Eastbourne hair salon, we can offer expert home hair care advice, read on to find out how you can spring clean your routine...
Spring Clean Your Hair Products
Let's be honest, most of us are guilty of holding onto a bunch of half used hair and beauty products! Many of us keep products a lot longer than we should, which can cause skin irritation and even burning or itching on your scalp! Hair products which are past their expiry date also won’t perform as well as they should. Go through your beauty cabinet and get rid of any out of date products.
If you have anything unwanted that is still sealed, your local charity shop may be happy to receive it.
Now that you've got space, it's the perfect opportunity to restock with fresh supplies of your favourite hair care products via our online shop, or to find new ones. If you need advice or inspiration, pop into our Eastbourne salon and we'll be happy to help!
Clean Your Brushes and Styling Tools
We all know that dirty make-up brushes can harbour bacteria and cause havoc with our skin, but many people don't apply the same logic to their hairbrushes. Clumps of hair, dead skin cells, hair products and grease can all build up in the bristles of your brush, creating the perfect environment for bacteria to thrive.
We recommend removing clumps of hair every week followed by using a deep cleaning shampoo on your hairbrush. If you use a wooden or paddle brush, you should check the manufacturers guidelines on cleaning, as water and shampoo can get trapped inside and cause damage.
Electrical styling tools such as curlers, straighteners or wands can suffer from the same build up of products, grease and germs as your hairbrushes. To clean your styling tools, first ensure they are unplugged and never, ever submerge them in water. A damp soft cloth or baby wipe should be sufficient to clean the styling plates, never use a scourer to remove dirt as this will damage the plates.
Don't forget your hairdryer filter, which can get filled with dust and dirt. You should be able to twist off the filter on the back or unclip it, then simply wipe with a warm, damp cloth to remove the dust, lint and other build up, then dry thoroughly.
Use The Perfect Hair Products For The Season
Most of us know that we should adapt our skin care as the seasons change, adding SPF or a hydrating moisturiser as necessary, but do you adapt your hair care routine in the same way?
As the weather brightens up, your hair colour may start to fade in the sun, or become dry and prone to breaking, we would recommend that you protect it from the UV rays with an SPF spray. Dry, stressed hair would also benefit from a conditioning treatment at Coco Hair salon. You may also find that your scalp and hair can become greasy in hot, humid weather so you may need to adjust your shampoo products.
If you aren't sure which seasonal hair care products would be best for you, speak to your Coco Hair stylist and we'll be happy to advise you.
Give Your Hair a Boost From Within
Your products, brushes and the way you treat your hair during changing weather are all important to promote healthy hair, but you can also give your hair a boost from the inside.
The condition of your hair is a reflection of your overall health and vitality, a healthy diet packed full of proteins, vitamins and minerals and drinking plenty of water will help to keep it at its best.
