HOW TO MAKE YOUR HAIR SOFT AND SILKY: Every woman desires a soft and silky hair is what every woman desired. Having a dry and damaged hair doesn’t really look good. But a soft and silky hair isn’t very easy to achieve but with commitment and adherence to the steps listed below and with patience, you will have a lovely soft hair for yourself.
Wash Your Hair With A Good Shampoo And Conditioner
Make use of a good shampoo and conditioner whenever you want to wash your hair. There are shampoos and conditioners made from natural product and they are more preferable as some shampoo could damage your hair by stripping your hair of the natural oil it needs.
Avoid using shampoos and conditioners that contain sulfate because they can suck moisture out of your hair. I’d rather you search for hair products containing hydrolyzed proteins, as they could help make your hair strands stronger and healthier.
Avoid Washing Your Hair Everyday
Avoid washing your hair everyday because it strips your hair of it’s natural oil without giving it enough time to restore the oil. Washing your hair every two or three days is a lot preferable so that natural oil can have enough time to be restored to your hair.
Wash And Rinse With Cold Water
Washing your hair with cold water is a lot preferable to hot water because hot water strips off the natural protective oils from your hair. Natural protective oil act as a natural conditioner for your hair, leaving your hair cold and dry. But cold water locks the natural moisturizers in your hair, making your hair feel softer.
Avoid Combing Wet Hair
After washing your hair with cold water, allow it to dry, oil it to make it easier to comb, thereafter, comb it.
Avoid combing your hair when it is wet because it could cause hair breakage and damage of your hair.
Avoid Applying Heat To Your Hair
After washing your hair, allow it to dry naturally. Avoid the use of heat equipment ( such as blow dryers, straighteners, curlers, and so on ) on your hair as they can lead to hair breakage, thereby damaging your hair.
If you must use heat equipment, spray heat protectant on your hair first. Use the cooler setting of the blow dryer when blow drying your hair. Don’t leave the blow dryer on the same spot for more than a second or two so as not to scorch your hair strands.
Trim Your Hair Regularly
Trim your hair on a regular interval because from time to time, your natural hair begins to have split ends. At this stage, you have to trim your hair to prevent it from getting tangled, drier and to prevent it from slowing down the growth of the hair.
Apply Deep Cleansing Conditioner
Apply deep cleansing conditioner to the root of your hair about once or twice in a week to restore moisture to your hair. It could also be used in styling your hair.
