Taming our locks can be quite a challenge, especially in a country where it’s hot and humid nearly all of the time. Here, 8 seriously fantastic tips on how you can score endless good hair days:

1. Consider pre-shampoo treatments
Think of your hair as an indicator of the condition of your scalp. Having a healthy and balanced scalp results in healthy and luscious hair. Step up your haircare routine by adding a pre-shampoo hair treatment once a week. The blend of essential oils will leave your scalp clean and revitalized. It targets various scalp problems like oiliness, itchiness, dryness, and even dandruff.

It’s also been formulated to help lessen thinning hair. Section your hair and add a few drops of the treatment on each section. Then, massage the product onto your scalp. Leave it on for 20 minutes before stepping in the shower to shampoo.

2. Schedule your hair washing
Some people insist that hair washing should be done daily, while some believe in doing it every other day. Frequent hair washing with harsh shampoos can actually dry out your hair easily, because they suck out your mane’s natural oils.

The key to nailing your hair washing schedule is observing your hair and your environment. If your locks tend to get very oily and smelly because you spend a lot of time outdoors (exposed to pollution and heat), you can get away with washing it every day. If not, you can definitely shampoo and condition every other day.

3. Seek professional help
Contact your salon and check out the various hair treatments they offer that will benefit your locks. Try out Kerastase Fusio Dose, a salon treatment that is made to answer your hair’s primary and secondary needs. A hairstylist will assess your hair’s condition and select the right concentrate and booster for you. If you have problems like dryness, thinning hair, color-treated hair, or damaged hair, this is perfect for you.

4. Do your own hair treatments at home, too
Save time and money by getting yourself a hair mask that will bring your hair to its best form. Select one that’s infused with natural oils to restore your hair’s fiber level and smooth texture.

5. Pick your shampoo and conditioner combo based on your needs
The only way you’ll get your shampoo and conditioner combo to work is by selecting one that will answer your hair’s needs. There are so many variants available in the market, and it’s all a matter of selecting one suitable for your tresses. For example, if you suffer from dry and damaged hair from too much heat styling, opt for a combo that will nurse back your hair into top shape.

6. Do regular trims
The ends of your hair are the weakest and most damaged. To keep your hair healthy, to help it grow better, and to prevent more breakage, get your hair trimmed regularly.

7. Use the right hair tools
Using the right tools—brushes, combs, and hair ties—is non-negotiable. Be gentle when brushing and combing out your hair to prevent breakage. When your hair is wet, use a wide tooth comb to detangle it.

8. Eat for your hair
Ultimately, whether you are healthy or not manifests in your hair. To get healthy locks, eat a diet rich in iron, zinc, and Omega-3 to stimulate healthy hair growth.
