How to get salon gorgeous hair at home without spending a fortune

Before the lockdown happened, I used to get a haircut, hair treatment, and hair color every month or two. Spending over a year at home made me realize how unprepared I am for moments like this when I can only rely on products that are either readily available at home or can be shipped straight to our doorstep. I’ve seen more split ends, dry strands, excessive hair breakage, dull and frizzy hair as it grew longer, which also made it unmanageable on a different level. If you’re experiencing the same thing, then here’s a list of things you may want to try, which have been quite effective for me:

1. Use a wide-tooth comb/brush

Brushes and combs with fine bristles may contribute to hair breakage, especially when you force-comb tangled hair strands. I’ve had a lot of “baby hair” before because the strands easily break when I pull down my comb. Switching to wide-toothed brushes and combs can do the trick!

2. Don’t scrub your hair with a towel when drying

A lot of us are accustomed to drying our hair by rubbing it with a towel after every bath but towel-drying this way can lead to frizziness according to my hair stylist. To avoid this, you have an option to air dry or use tools that do not require too much heat for styling.

3. Check the ingredients of your shampoo and conditioner

Before checking out a product online or in store, check the ingredients first. There are ingredients like Benzene which may cause skin irritation. Make sure to check the expiration date as well since shampoo and conditioners expire, too!

4. Style your hair in a natural way as much as possible

To avoid split ends and further breakage, try to style your hair without using excessive heat and harmful hair styling irons. If you want wavy hair, you have an option to twist your hair in a bun for a few hours and let it loose in a wavy ponytail. You can also accessorize using a headband or use a scrunchie with your tousled hair. Perfect with any #OOTD!

5. Go for Kera10 instead of keratin

TRESemmé’s answer to our hair woes?

KERA10 protein complex doesn’t just stop working on the hair surface, it is also designed to penetrate 10 layers deep leading to the core of the hair. It also reinforces each protein bonds, thereby deeply repairing weeks of accumulated damage caused by UV, heat, and chemical treatment. On top of repairing damaged hair, each hair strand is also protected from future damage with regular use.
