Why Do You Need A Haircare Routine?

Hair Care

Hair fall is the most common hair issue which most of us face due to lack of adequate haircare. Haircare is a crucial aspect of our daily routine. Our hair is exposed to environmental aggressors such as UV rays, dirt, dust, smoke, which can cause hair loss, and other hair care problems such as dry, brittle and frizzy hair. An unhealthy lifestyle, poor eating habits and using the wrong haircare products can lead to various hair issues, such as hair loss and dry, lacklustre and brittle hair. An unhealthy scalp can lead to multiple scalp conditions, such as dandruff, itchy and flaky scalp. This is why we should have a regular haircare regime to maintain a healthy scalp and hair. A clean scalp and healthy, well-maintained hair give you a well-groomed look, adding charm to your overall appearance. Healthy, bouncy and vibrant-looking hair is not possible without adequate care.

Regular shampooing and oiling are essential, but that alone is not enough. You must maintain the balance. It is necessary to be aware of the type and texture of your hair and use haircare products accordingly. Avoid hair care products containing harsh chemicals that can damage your hair, deteriorating its health. Both excessively greasy and parched hair is equally disgusting. You should know about the ingredients of your hair care product to avoid adverse effects.

Steps For Your Go-To Haircare Routine

Starting a hair care routine is not a meticulous job if you know your hair type and texture. Determine your hair type and choose the haircare products according to the type and texture of your hair. Below mentioned are some of the best ways to care for your hair daily.

1. Hot Oil Massage

Hot Oil Massage

Massaging your head with hair oil is an age-old tradition that should be an integral part of your hair care routine, especially if you have frizzy, dry hair. Hair oil massage improves the scalp's blood circulation, smoothens the cuticle, and lubricates your strands, providing nourishment and hydration to your scalp and hair. Regular oil massage with a natural oil such as coconut oil, avocado oil, olive oil, and rosemary oil helps combat major haircare issues such as hair loss, dry, dull and brittle hair.

2. Scalp Exfoliation

Scalp Exfoliation

Just like your facial skin, your scalp needs to be exfoliated once or twice a week to eliminate product buildup, debris, dead skin cells, and sebum. A clean scalp ensures hair health, adding strength and nourishment from root to tip. A healthy scalp is a prerequisite for the growth of long, luscious hair. Scalp exfoliation plays a vital role in a hair care regime as a clean scalp facilitates better absorption of hair care products.

3. Scalp Cleansing

Scalp Cleansing

Keeping your scalp clean is essential for hair growth. Use a shampoo that suits your hair type. Choose a shampoo which cleanses, hydrates, and nourishes your hair and scalp. Use a shampoo that gently cleanses your scalp and fortifies the hair follicles with vital nutrients required for maintaining healthy hair and scalp. You can shampoo your hair two-three times a week, depending on your hair type.

4. Conditioning


Conditioning is an integral part of any hair care routine. Shampooing can deprive your hair of its natural oil, resulting in dull and dry hair. Conditioner makes your dry and frizzy hair more manageable. It improves the hair's elasticity, reducing hair breakage and thinning.

5. Moisturizing


Keeping your hair well-moisturized helps to eliminate dry, dull and brittle hair. Experts recommend using a leave-in hair cream or serum to keep frizz and flyaways in control. Apply the leave-in serum on your damp hair, as it helps to lock the moisture inside the hair shaft, thus keeping your hair in good shape.

6. Protect & Prevent

Protect & Prevent

Extreme climatic conditions and exposure to heat can have a huge impact on your hair health. To protect your hair from the damaging effect of these external aggressors, after shower, you should apply a hair serum, which provides protection from heat and at the same time imparts hydration, nourishment and protection to your strands. A heat protectant forms an outer shield, protecting your hair from extreme heat of the styling tools.

7. Repair


As your hair goes through a lot of wear and tear daily, exposure to sun rays and pollution can rob your hair of moisture and nourishment, resulting in lackluster, dry and brittle hair. A hair treatment or mask can work wonders in repairing damaged strands. A hydrating, nourishing and replenishing hair mask/ hair treatment helps to restore the lost moisture and vital nutrients, thus improving hair health. Apply a hair mask that targets your hair concern. Apply a hydrating hair mask to combat hair dryness, a nourishing hair mask to fight hair fall.
