If deciding what daily hair products and tools to use is not something you had thought through before, maybe it’s high time that you did.
Even more when you want to keep your hair healthy and ready for the day, every day. Knowing which daily hair products are essential and appropriate for your type of hair (and the type of person you are) will make your life a whole lot easier. And your morning routine a whole lot swifter.
So, how do you know what to get for your daily hair needs? Here we leave you an essential list of basic daily hair products and tools to start getting the hair care you want readily available in your bathroom cupboard:
First off, hairbrushes. Unless you have a certain type of curly hair which you could untangle with your fingers instead because of how delicate it can be, brushing regularly can allow you to have a healthier scalp and hair in the long run.
Invest in a good hairbrush that won’t damage your hair or break it. Buy one that has a rubber base and boar’s head bristles mixed in with synthetic ones which will help take natural oils from your scalp to your ends without damaging the strands.
For a quick fix or to keep your hairstyle in check, there’s a styling spray for that. There are sprays available for all hair types, including dry hair, fine hair, frizzy hair, etc.
The point is to use the styling spray for its specific purpose only and apply it more where your hair is thickest to keep it in control.
When buying shampoo, always choose one that is made for your type of hair. Sure, you might not use it every day, but cleansing your hair is ideal for keeping it healthy.
Get a shampoo that will help your hair get the nutrition and care it lacks, not one that isn’t meant for your hair type. But if your hair is more dry and frizzy, you won’t need to use much shampoo since it might be more beneficial to use conditioner instead.
This is again not meant to be used every day, but you should still treat your hair to a good conditioner that will hydrate it sufficiently.
Get a conditioner that is ideal for your hair type, say one that is meant for giving more volume, or for extra moisturizer if your hair is dry. In this case, using conditioner as much as possible is ideal to keep the frizz at bay for your day-to-day routine.
Curling Irons and Flatirons
For when you have time and want to give your hair a fresh look that day, these tools will give you an immediate effect.
Good flat irons and curling irons work on all hair types, though the best types of flat irons are made with ceramic plates so that hair damage is kept to a minimal. Flatirons will work to calm down curls and flatten hair, so it can drape around you like silk; curling irons, on the other hand, will give it volume and waves or curls, depending on how you want your hair to look.
When getting a blow dryer, make sure it’s as powerful as it gets. This way the exposure to heat will be less and the damage won’t be as bad to your hair.
Getting a good hair dryer might depend on your type of hair since if you have a finer type, you can make do with a blow dryer that’s only 1,500 watts. But a good blow dryer will always be as versatile as it gets, and an indispensable tool in your daily hair arsenal.
Having these daily products and tools will keep you ready for the day. Your hair will get what it needs to really be at its best every day. You won’t have to keep tying it down or putting it away unnecessarily just because you didn’t know how to handle it or lacked the tool to bring out your favourite look. Keep these daily products and tools on hand so you can always keep your hair game on point.
