6 hair care habits for healthy, luscious locks

The secret to gorgeous hair isn’t just natural beauty products, but lifestyle changes that help enhance their effect. So this summer, don’t let hair care tie you up in knots. Follow our six habits for healthy, luscious locks and enjoy hair that looks and feels as it should, naturally.

Our top hair care habits

1. Brush before showering

Did you know your hair is more vulnerable to breakage when it’s wet? So change up your routine and brush your hair properly before hopping in the shower. This will keep your strands strong, and leave them smooth and ready for styling when you hop out.

2. Turn down the heat

Heat is a big no-no when it comes to healthy hair. Over-styling with a hairdryer, curler and straightener can leave your hair feeling brittle and dry. Not to mention high shower heat can irritate your scalp, causing your hair to grow out weaker. To boost the health of your hair, choose cooler grooming alternatives that are less harsh – like towel drying on occasion and taking cooler showers. 

3. Look for strengthening ingredients

Certain natural hair care ingredients can boost the strength and general condition of your hair, like coconut oil, shea butter, almond oil, and argan oil. Orobaa hair care is all about working with what nature has blessed us with to be the most brilliant and bright version of ourselves. Read more about the power of our natural ingredients. We have plenty of natural hair care products in-store for you to try. But if you’d like to shop our online store, you can order our Authentic African Black Soap and Beauty Hair and Scalp Moisturiser – both excellent choices for your natural hair care regimen!

4. Eat a balanced diet

It goes without saying that a healthy diet is important. But did you know that diet influences the condition of your lustrous locks? Hair is largely made of protein, so a diet rich in fish, meat, eggs and beans can improve the overall health of your hair. And foods that contain high levels of vitamin C and E, like berries, spinach and avocados, can be beneficial too as they promote collagen production in the hair, making it stronger and more resilient.

5. Sleep on silk

We all need our beauty sleep – yes, despite what many believe, sleeping can have an effect on our appearance. So give your hair the beauty rest it needs by swapping your cotton pillowcase for a silk one. A silk pillowcase will prevent your hair from rubbing and getting caught, protecting the cuticle of your hair. If you’re not keen on a silk pillow, you can still benefit from a silky sleep by tying your hair up in a loose topknot with a silk scrunchie. It achieves the same effect!

6. Get a trim

Nobody wants split ends. Not only do they look bad, but the longer you leave them unattended, the more hair you need to trim off at the hairdresser. So if your hair is long, give it the TLC it needs and have your split ends trimmed every two to three months.
