You may apply hair products to your hair, but do you still feel your hair is too bad looking? Here are four common ways how you were applying hair products the wrong way. read how to fix your hair care routine permanently.
1. You’re using way too much moisturizing cream, which can weigh your hair down
Instead of this, you should squeeze a pea- to quarter-size amount of the hydrating leave-in formula, onto one of your palms, and then rub your two hands together so that the product goes through evenly.
2. You hold the nozzle of your hairspray too close to your hair
If you spray your hair too close then you are concentrating the spray only in one spot and the effect will be only there so you should hold a hairspray, about 12 inches away from your hair, aiming it at an angle so that you get a light mist all over.
3. You spritz salt spray on the top layer of your hair only
To get the full effect of a salt spray, you’ll need to work it into sections.
4. You glob a styling cream onto your roots and work it down the hair shaft

Things to stop doing with your everyday hair care routine
Dilute shampoo and massage for at least 1 minute
Do you just squirt out the shampoo, rub it quickly through your hair and then rinse it? This is such a wrong hair care routine. What you should do is wet your hair first, then put shampoo in your palm, add a little water to dilute it, and then work it through your strands. Massage the shampoo into your scalp until you get a good lather. Rinse well, and then add the conditioner. If you do not rinse the shampoo, and there is still left shampoo in your hair then the conditioner will just slide off without penetrating the strands. That won’t give any results for healthier and glossier hair.
End your shower with a cold rinse
If you haven’t tried this trick ever before, it is time to finally insert it into your hair care routine. Always do a final rinse of your hair with cold water. That will seal the cuticle. Also, this will prevent hair damage and will make your hair dye last longer. The dream of every woman dyeing her hair, isn’t it?
Don’t use dry shampoo more than twice a week
Yes, we all know that dry shampoo helps a blowout last longer as well as helps refresh your hair in the middle of the day, especially when it gets too oily. But, it also leaves product residue that irritates your scalp and causes hair to fall. Using dry shampoo can also make your hair look dry and lifeless. If you use it in your hair care routine, then we recommend you to not do it more than 2 times a week.
Apply heat protectant evenly
If your hair care routine includes the use of so many hair styling products including heat like the hair iron, then you should include heat protectants to prevent hair damage. When you curl or iron your hair, as well as when you blow dry it, you expose it to overall heat that can damage it. In order to prevent further heat hair damage, we recommend you use heat protectants. Divide your hair into sections and then spray from left to right, top to bottom. Your hair will thank you.
Apply hair oil only when you need it
If applying hair oil is part of your hair care routine, then you may know that sometimes hair oil makes your hair lose volume and look greasy. Yes, this happens when you apply too much oil. Stop doing it! Or, at least start applying hair oil the right way! Apply it in small amounts only on the hair area where needed.
