When it comes to our skincare regimen, we invest our money to maintain our glow game, but the strange reality is that many of us forget to treat our scalp and our hair to the same amount of TLC. Most of us reach for any old shampoo and conditioner from the drugstore and subject our locks to daily heat styling. We’ve shared the haircare rituals that’ll take your routine to the next level and debunked some major haircare myths along the way. Get ready for your healthiest hair ever.

Never Go to Bed with Wet Hair

There’s a common misconception that you can sleep in wet hair and let it dry overnight. However, this can lead to damage. Hair is most fragile when it’s wet, if you sleep on a cotton pillowcase the moisture will be absorbed and the strands will be tugged, leading to damage and breakage. Instead, you should first wrap your locks in a cotton T-Shirt or super absorbent microfiber towel, then apply heat protectant and dry your hair with a hairdryer – ideally on a low heat setting for optimum hair health.

Stop Overwashing your Hair

Washing your hair too frequently can disrupt the natural biome of your scalp. Hair sits at a pH balance of 4.5 to 5, which is the ideal pH balance for your scalp to thrive. When you dry shampoo or wash it every day, you’ll strip that protective layer off your mane, and your hair and scalp will go into panic mode. This is especially important during the winter, when wet hair is exposed to cooler temperatures that can dehydrate the hair strands or lead to damage when styled. Instead, wash your locks once or twice a week (unless you’re working up a serious sweat) and only use dry shampoo when necessary.

Don’t Overload on Hair Products

When it comes to mane care, don’t assume that more products equal increased benefits, as it can actually lead to product build-up, which can disrupt your hair and scalp health. The built-up product can also make your scalp itchy when it starts mixing with oil and dirt. Not only will your hair look better but it will feel better. If you use minimal product, your hair won’t feel weighed down.

Don’t Neglect Your Scalp

Ultimately, if you have an unhealthy scalp, your locks will likely suffer. Without scalp care, product build-up, dead skin and excess oil will combine and wreak havoc, leading to greasy, brittle locks. The best way to promote a healthy scalp is with a scrub, which you should do one to two times a month. By massaging a scalp scrub into your scalp, it will promote healthy blood flow and deliver a surge of oxygen while exfoliating your scalp and combatting any buildup.

Massage your Scalp Regularly

One of our fave mane care rituals to promote a happy and healthy scalp is scalp massage. Not only is it completely free and incredibly soothing but it can also encourage new hair growth and rebalance your scalp. Regular scalp massages with oils are great for stimulation and mane growth.
