Give Your Hair Love & Care

Home Remedies for Hair


After a night out or a rough week at work, what do you fancy most? Sleeping the whole day? Getting a massage? Or even a pedicure or manicure? Regardless of how you choose to unwind, the key is to pamper yourself – give yourself a little tender loving care that your body requires. Don't forget that taking care of yourself also means looking after the thing that makes you look so glamorous! Your Hair!

Your hair gets stressed too! Don’t worry, loving your hair doesn't require an expensive trip to the salon. We'll share our secrets so you can love and care for your hair right at home! How? Simply shampoo and condition your hair the correct way. Here are a few things to remember while you’re at it:

  • 1

    Use the Least Amount of Shampoo Possible

    Too much shampoo can make it difficult to rinse it all out thoroughly and could leave a protective film on the hair that will make it dull and lifeless, as well as cause other problems, like flaking.

  • 2

    Don’t Pile Your Hair On Top of Your Head

    Piling your hair on top of your head will just cause tangles and cause more breakage. Let your hair down while washing and use your hands to gently work the shampoo from the roots right down to the ends. Use the same method when drying your hair with a towel.

  • 3

    Not too hot

    Use warm rather than hot water, as hot water is likely to strip your hair of its colour and moisture. Finish by washing your hair with cold water which will leave your hair extra shiny after each shampoo.

  • 4

    Work it through

    It's good for your scalp to massage the shampoo into your head for as long as possible. If your hair is thicker or longer, you may use more shampoo. If your hair is greasy, then shampoo twice before conditioning.

  • 5

    Use the right product

    Know your hair type so that you can buy shampoo and conditioner that meet the needs of your hair. Is it coarse, dry, thick or limp? It’s essential to recognise problematic areas, for example hairfall, dryness or dandruff.
