Hair hair hair.. do we wash it everyday? Do we wash it every other day? We are taught so many things about taking care of our hair which can get confusing for the most part.

Besides figuring out how often we are supposed to wash our hair, one question that we all can relate to is “How are we supposed to actually wash our hair correctly?”

Everyone has their own special way on taking care of their hair. However, sometimes we work with techniques that are often common mistakes which can damage our locks of hair. With that being said using the right techniques can make a big difference with your hair from the shine, bounce, texture and even it’s own health.

Here are some tips and tricks to correctly take care of your hair.

1. Start off with rinsing your hair
First step is to throughly wet your hair before you apply any shampoo or conditioner. Using hot or warm water will help with removing any dirt or any products which are trapped in the hair.

2. Anyone with long locks out there? Condition first!
Usually if you hair hair below shoulder length, it would be best to condition your hair first so you can protect your hair from getting damaged with using a small amount of conditioner and rinsing before shampooing your hair. This will help the ends of your hair healthy, smooth and shiny.

3. Lather up!
If you didn’t know, the top of your hair (which are your roots) are actually the only part of hair you need to shampoo.
The roots of our hair are the freshest, youngest and the oiliest part versus our ends which of course are older and drier.
All you really need is a quarter size of shampoo which will make your bottles go a long way.

4. Treat your hair like a baby.
Too much friction on your hair can actually damage the cuticles of your hair which can cause frizziness and breakage. When treating your hair, be gentle.

Start with the roots and lathering which will help the blood flow circulation and hair growth stroking vertically. If you use circular motions it can tangle your hair. You should then lather the ends in a straight stroking motion. It is highly suggested to not scrub your hair back and forth so avoid further damage.

5. No need for rinsing and repeating.
With every shampoo bottle, there are always steps listed on the back. Unless if your hair is absolutely dirty and the first wash didn’t do justice, then lather up again. However, it isn’t necessary to repeat the process.

6. Condition from mid-length to the tips.
Once you shampooed and rinsed it all out, squeeze out some of the hair before you condition. Then clip your hair up and finish showering allowing the conditioner to be the final step to rinse during your shower.

The more time conditioner sits on your hair, the better it grasps allowing your hair to stay soft and tangle free after your shower.

7. End with a cold rinse
Using cold water as a final rinse for your hair will close your hair cuticles tight sealing the outer layer of your hair. This will also allow your hair to give not only the most light but the best shine.

Other tips to follow to properly treat your hair
-Using shampoo and conditioner products made particularly for your hair.
-Your hair type depends on how often you should wash your hair.
-Filter your water.

Next time you wash your hair, give these steps a try! Using these steps can definitely help to maintain your locks to be the healthiest it can be.

When thinking about music festivals, hair styles are one of the very first things that come to mind. The flower crown has always been a universal symbol for music festivals themselves and has been admired by many festival goers. With pinned up hair and a flower halo the simple look is complete and ready to go. The messy braid is also a classy yet simple hairstyle to pull off. Take a French braid and make it a bit messy by taking some hair strands out of the braid. If you want to still have flashy accessories in your hair , but don’t want to rock the floral crown you can put smaller doodads secured in by pins to give a more subtle style. If you want to go very simple then the side braid might be for you. Keeping it casual is sometimes the best way to go and makes for an easy preparation. At the end of the day any hairstyle is acceptable for a festival that lets you show your creativity and originality. Hopefully these styles help you make a decision for your next festival.

Dry Shampoo has actually been around longer than you might think. It was created surprisingly before liquid shampoo. Its main goal was to keep your hair in style and prevent it from carrying any odor. While it still serves some of the same purposes today it is also used to keep the color in your hair longer. Dry shampoo also comes in handy if you are in a rush in regards of time. Not only will it help keep the shape you want your hair to take on, it will also help fight off humidity. Using dry shampoo allows you to go longer in-between each shampoo use. It also incorporates volume to your hairstyle that will hold throughout the day if you get the right product for your hair type. A majority of the grease and oils in your hair will also be picked up by the dry shampoo while leaving behind a nice fragrance that stays on your scalp. It should be considered to use for hair extensions as well because water contact should try to be avoided. Finally, if you are washing your hair less with traditional shampooing you will have the opportunity to give your hair a break from using so many tools and products as often as you do. There is a right dry shampoo for everyone!
