‘Is your hair natural?’
‘What shampoo are you using?’
‘Why is it so shiny and straight?’
‘What do you do?’
Most people asked me those questions when they first met me in person. Well, I got it from my Mama. Thanks to her genes, I saved myself from hundred of bucks for salon lol kidding. But on serious note, I just want to share what I do with my hair to keep it beautiful cause every woman is crazy about her hair. Admit it, girls like the saying goes hair is our crowning glory.
(These Don’ts with my hair are just my personal preference and common sense. I don’t have any scientific reasons or proof for it but the results are pretty good.)
I don’t use hair dryer or blower for the reason that I’m so lazy. My arms are getting tired from it cause I have a long hair it takes forever to dry. So instead, I just stand in front of our room heater and let the hot air flows through my hair. (win-win situation! lol) but seriously, I also think it is damaging to use hair dryer everyday it will cause dry hair eventually.
2. Combing hair when it’s wet
I don’t comb my hair when it’s wet cause wet hair tends to be frizzy and tangled. I only use my hands most of the time to comb and don’t force your hair when untangling. It will just cause unnecessary hair loss. I wait for it to dry to finally comb it using brush, you will notice it is easier to untangled.
Trivia: I only comb my hair when going to bed. lol too lazy!
3. No hot water
Using hot water to hair is a crime unless, you want to go bald. Since, living in Japan where there is winter I notice that hot water is damaging. So, what I did was I washed my hair first using lukewarm water not hot water that is 40 degrees. No matter how cold, I endure it.
4. Wrap your wet hair using towel
We usually wrap our hair with towel after showering, but I noticed that it makes my hair more tangled. So, after showering I just let my hair down even though the water is still dripping from my hair. The results are it’s easier to dry and comb.
5. Wash your hair everyday
This is my dirty little secret, I don’t wash my hair every Saturdays for the reason that I’m so lazy and I know that I don’t have work the next day. So it’s fine lol. But, I think washing your hair everyday is drying and I don’t use hair conditioner everyday cause I don’t have time. I can only use hair conditioner every weekends or when I don’t have work.
6. No to hair bleaching
I only use Liese Prettia product of Japan when I want to dye my hair. I’m scared of using strong hair dyes or hair bleach cause I know it’s too damaging. Liese Prettia doesn’t cause much damage to my hair, I’m using it for 4 years now and my hair is still fine. But this year, I plan to stop dying I want my natural black hair back.
That’s it! Nothing special or extra effort. I don’t use any hair products, just shampoo and conditioner. Maybe it just all runs down on how you take care of your hair for it to be beautiful. I take pride to my hair cause it’s important to me. So for everyone who’s asking me read my blog, people! lol
‘Have a nice hair day!’ xoxo
