Perfect Your Base Hair Care Routine
August 25, 2022
Sticking to a routine can be tough but when you’re absolutely IN LOVE with your hair care routine, it’s hard to complain. Try sticking to this Foxy routine and you won’t ever wanna go back!
Whether you like to wash your hair at the beginning or end of the week, knowing how to properly wash your hair and what products to use will make your life so much easier and your hair so much healthier. Remember that your hair does NOT need to be washed everyday. Overwashing our hair can overdry the hair follicles and hinder hair growth. To keep up with cleanliness, use a dry shampoo like our Dirty Gal Dry Shampoo to absorb excess oils.
Depending on your hair type (frizzy, dry, flat, or dyed) you’ll want to make sure that the shampoo you use caters to your hair’s specific needs. The Maliboo Smooth Anti-Frizz Shampoo works best for those who have harder to tame hair. The California Dreaming Moisturizing Shampoo is a great option for someone who has damaged and dry hair. For those looking for more volume and body, try the Bae Area Bounce Volumizing Shampoo. Lastly, if you have dyed hair (blonde/highlights), you’ll want to maintain the tone with our Always Sassy, Never Brassy Purple Shampoo.
Now when you shampoo your hair, don’t go overboard with the product because you actually only need a very small amount. Remember to lather the liquid in your hands so that the product is completely emulsified. Next, focus on massaging the product ONLY into your scalp. Many people make the mistake of shampooing all of their hair when it’s only intended for cleaning the scalp.
For some extra TLC, a deep conditioner or nourishing hair mask will help to repair your hair’s moisture barrier. The ends of our hair are extremely important to maintain because they are prone to split ends. Breakage is caused by many factors such as how you brush your hair, what fabric pillowcase you sleep on (try our Satin pillowcase), how often your hair is tied up in a ponytail, or how often you use heat styling tools. It can be hard to keep up with all of these but it’s crucial to treat your hair to some intense hydration. Our 12-in-1 Daily Magic Leave In Conditioner works great to keep the ends of your locks smooth and soft. The Insta Bae 3 Minute Hair Mask is our ultra intense treatment that instantly improves the overall shine and strength of your hair.
Just like how we are told to wear sunscreen everyday to protect our skin, we really should be applying heat protectant to our hair as well. Even if you aren’t planning to use a heat tool like a curling wand or blow dryer, heat protection is always a must because our hair still gets damaged by the sun. Extremely hot weather can dry out our hair and make it brittle. Spraying our Cool AF Heat Protectant Spray will create a barrier between your hair and the harsh UV rays. In addition to this, apply a leave-in conditioner such as our Flaminglow Leave In Conditioner for extra moisture and hydration in case you’ll be out under the sun.
Once you’ve mastered your base hair care routine, you’ll be ready to conquer anything while also looking GOOD doing it! Stick to this routine and your hair will LOVE it!
