The coveted good hair day is something we can all relate to. When your hair looks great, you feel great. Like many, a good hair day is a huge confidence boost. Like a lot you know by now, I’m a bit hair obsessed. I’m always experimenting with hairstyles. I love to try new products to keep my hair looking healthy and beautiful. I’m excited to partner with Pantene to share my steps to ensure a good hair day.
Cut Back on Washing
Clean hair is important, but most people don’t need to wash their hair every day. In fact, washing your hair this often could be contributing to bad hair days. When you wash your hair, you strip it of its natural oils. These oils help keep your scalp and hair moisturized. When your hair is properly moisturized it’s less likely to break and frizz. However, it’s all about balance. Over time this oil builds up along with other debris and environmental elements. A good shampoo hits the reset button. See more about this below. The time between washes is individualized and will depend on a number of factors including your hair type. If you currently wash every day, try going every other day, then every two days and see how your hair responds. For some people, it might be beneficial to only wash twice a week.
Don’t Brush Wet Hair
Part of having a good hair day involves taking proper care of it. For years I would brush my hair right after getting out of the shower. Your hair is the weakest when it’s wet. Trying to run a brush through it creates too much tension on weakened strands and significant breakage happens. If you’re already prone to breakage, especially for those with color treated hair, this is an issue. If you have an issue with tangling, brush your hair before taking a shower. You’ll notice a big improvement. The safest way to deal with wet hair is to remove excess water and towel dry before using a wide tooth comb.
Use the Right Product
The products you put in your hair are important but what you start with arguably matters more. It acts as the foundation for your haircare routine. A shampoo and conditioner that address your needs is the first step towards your good hair day. Like I mentioned above one way to achieve a good hair day is to extend the time between washes. You need a shampoo and conditioner designed around that and will keep your hair looking beautiful between washes. The Pantene Charcoal Collection shampoo and conditioner will do just that. The charcoal acts as a magnet to remove impurities from your hair, even all of that dry shampoo! It leaves your hair feeling refreshed and balanced. This collection is also safe for color treated hair. It keeps your hair looking fresh and beautiful between washes.
Pantene’s Charcoal Collection Shampoo is a blend of activated charcoal, pro-vitamin B5, and antioxidants. It’s free of silicone, parabens, and dyes. The Pantene Charcoal Collection Conditioner is their first ever silicone-free conditioner. Like the shampoo, it’s also free of parabens and dyes. It contains a blend of white charcoal, pro-vitamin B5, and antioxidants. It’s lightweight and moisturizing. This collection is part of my good hair day toolkit.
Regardless of what you’re wearing great hair can elevate any look and mood. What’s your secret to a good hair day?
