Avoid hair disasters - follow these quick tips to ensure you get the right after wash care for your hair!


You have bought the right shampoo and followed the washing instructions. However, sadly, your hair still seems to lack the expected shine. This is probably because you haven’t followed the steps right after the wash. It's a well-know fact that after a wash you should let your hair dry naturally, but unless you detangle it first, your hair might become frizzy and messy when it dries. To avoid this mistake here are 5 quick tips to ensure extra special care for your hair after the wash!

    After washing you hair, most people rub their hair dry to remove excess water, or wrap a towel around the top of their head. This is not the best practice. Instead, gently pat your wet hair with a towel and loosely wrap the towel around your hair keeping it on for several minutes to remove excess water.

    Apply a leave-in conditioner or light serum to ensure your hair retains the moisture after a wash. This will also help you detangle your hair more easily, especially if it's long.

    Run a wide-tooth comb through your wet hair to remove tangles. Start combing your hair from the ends working your way up to the top. This way you will tackle your knots more easily, and will avoid making your hair more tangled.

    While styling your hair, ensure that you apply heat protecting serum before using a hair dryer, straightener or curling iron. This will help you retain the moisture while giving you the style you want.

    Refrain from tying your hair up when it's wet, as wet hair is very fragile and breaks easily. If you can't let your hair down, tie it loosely with a snag-free elastic band or cover with a scarf.  Following these tips will help you manage your hair and make it as glamorous as your personality!
