Are you tired of stocking so many styling gels, curling irons, mousse and supplementary hair care products? Are you spending too much money on finding the right products that work for you? Well, if you are like most other frustrated women who are going through this too, we have some basic tools and products that all women should always have.
Brush: every woman should have the right brush; one that is of the highest quality. A good brush equates healthier hair. Look for one that has a rubber base and boar head bristles. Why? It does less damage to the hair. Look to spend about $11.
Shampoo: the correct shampoo is essential since women have a variety of hair type. Read the ingredients on the bottle. If you have long hair, you may have to shampoo your hair twice. All you are doing is trying to remove the dirt and oil from your hair, but also adding moisture. So choose a shampoo that does both; even if you are going to use a moisturizer separately.
Conditioner: conditioning your hair is very important to having healthy hair. You can opt for a leave-in conditioner or one that you have to rinse out. Conditioners help to repair the hair from damaging chemicals and heat. Choose one that has moisturizing ingredients that leave the hair free of tangles. Work from the end of the hair to the roots. Comb through to make sure that there are no tangles.
Wide-toothed comb: Always avoid using a brush to comb through your wet shampooed hair. Instead, use a wide-toothed comb. You can buy one that ranges from a dollar to ten bucks.
Serum to improve sheen: Don’t count out shine serums because they do work. If your hair texture is fine, you should use only a small portion and a little spritz. However, if you have thick hair, use the serum to smooth out your hair and add sheen to it. You can end up spending as low as five bucks and as high as thirty dollars for a good shine serum.
Dry Shampoo: When you are in between shampoos, a dry shampoo can help to absorb the oil in your hair. If you are low on cash, talcum powder is a good alternative, but don’t use too much because you don’t want to have powder in your hair while going to work.
Blow dryer: this is a must-have product. Get one that is strong and powerful; to get the job done quickly; especially if you have thick or long hair. Get one that you can also put in your travel bag. For thicker hair, go for one that has approximately 1,875 watts. For finer hair, buy one that has 1,500 watts.
Curling iron: for women with straight hair, a curling iron is a best friend to keep handy. I wouldn’t recommend over using it since too much heat can damage the hair. Use only when it is really necessary.
Mousse: this is excellent for people who have fine hair. It adds volume to the hair. If your hair is coarse, however, you should opt for a straightening balm to eliminate frizzing.
Using the right hair care products is essential to maintaining beautiful hair that will turn heads. You also want to have healthy hair that will make you more confident so be wise in the products that you choose to put in your hair.
