From scalp-friendly hairdos to detangling hacks, master this list of hair care habits for peak hair goals. You won’t be able to keep your hands off your mane after that!
Tresses looking drab after new year partying and lockdown neglect? We feel ya. As we turn the page onto a new calendar, we’re all about resetting our agenda for the year. On our list of 2021 beauty goals: five hair resolutions that will restore a healthy, glowing mane. Want in on the secret to perfect hair? Sneak a peek into our hair care notes…
Less heat, more protection
Curling tongs and straightening irons may promise Insta-worthy hair, but they also result in weaker strands. Practice restraint when you’re tempted to reach for heat styling tools – your hair will thank you for it. However, if the damage has already been done with all the holiday season styling, all is not lost. To reinvigorate your locks, book a sesh with US Trichology Institute certified hair specialists at Topp Care Hair Solutions. Try the Hair Spa Treatment to save dry, brittle and damaged hair, using formulas from Western Botanicals to restore a healthy shine. Ready to give up heat styling but not blow drying? Be sure to spritz on a generous helping of heat protectant spray before you get the hair dryer going!
Say yes to low tension styles
Move over, high ponytails and top buns. We’re all about embracing low tension styles in 2021 for a year of reduced hair fall (fingers crossed). Besides, what’s not to love about chic low buns, neckline-grazing ponies or just having your hair down in all its glory? This is one easy hair resolution to keep – we’d rock those hairdos in a heartbeat! And don’t be afraid to seek out extra help for your hair fall concerns: Topp Care’s Healthy Scalp Treatment will help to restore healthy follicles and stimulate hair growth. With consistent care, you won’t have to worry about losing your hair’s natural thickness again.
Ditch the dry shampoo for real
Sunday washes don’t work in the humid Singapore weather, which calls for more regular washing to keep greasy strands at bay. Don’t let the convenience of dry shampoos seduce you, as they aren’t the healthiest option for your scalp. These products are made with starch and alcohol, absorbing sebum when sprayed or sprinkled on the roots. Sure, they’ll make any greasiness less noticeable, but they don’t actually remove all the nasty stuff the way a good ol’ shampoo sesh would. And using dry shampoo too often may lead to a build up of product on your scalp, which doesn’t bode well for hair health. That’s the reason our new year hair resolutions include ditching the dry shampoos for good.
Detangle wet hair – don’t brush!
Add a detangler or any sort of wide-toothed comb to your hair care arsenal if you haven’t already. Why do you need one when you have a hair brush, you ask? Well, fine-brushing your wet, post-shower mane is a huge no-no. Your hair is way more prone to breaking when it’s wet, so a gentler tool is ideal for loosening up your hair without causing accidental damage. Wait till your tresses are almost, if not fully, dry before you attempt any thorough brushing. To get stronger strands, take it a step further with Topp Care’s Energizing Scalp Masque for a strengthening and rejuvenating treatment. We’re all about going natural, so we like how this hair salon uses good-for-you herbs to nourish and heal.
As always, a good diet is key
A poor diet can show in many ways, including in lacklustre locks. Not cute. Be kind to your hair (and your body!) by consuming vitamins, nutrients and antioxidant-rich foods. Yup, as cliche as it sounds, our 2021 hair resolutions include downing food with Vitamin E such as leafy greens, nuts and seeds and fruits daily for a healthier mane. Inner beauty is key, as they say.
