8 Hair care tips for dry hair.

Hey guys,

In this blog I’m gonna share some of my hair care tips which we need to consider to avoid your hair becoming dry and frizzy.

1.Brushing your hair thoroughly before washing:

It is very important to brush your hair before washing it ,as it spreads all the natural oils evenly throughout your hair giving it a protective coat.
The absence of any sort of tangled strands makes it much easier to effectively rinse your hair and make sure you comb your hair starting from the bottom to the roots.

2.Washing your hair less often:

By over-washing your hair you are stripping it off its natural oils which results in your hair becoming dull,dry and prone to more breakage.
I would recommend to wash your hair not more than 3 times a week.

3.It’s all about water temperatures:

Warm water opens up hair cuticles to allow shampoo and conditioner to do their job,whereas cold water helps to close the cuticles and seal moisture and helps your hair look shiny and healthy.
So if you take warm shower,at the end don’t forget to rinse with cold water.

4.Alcohol free shampoo:

When you buy your shampoo make sure you definitely have a quick look at the ingredients.
Alcohol makes your hair frizzy, a helpful ingredient is Glycerin.
I would recommend to aim for the shampoos that are rich in glycerin and alcohol free.

5.Conditioning your hair:

Using conditioner on a regular basis is important for your hair,but use it only to the ends.
I wouldn’t recommend using conditioner directly to the scalp.After this rinse your hair super well with cold water to get all the product out of it otherwise your hair loses its healthy shine.

6.Handling your wet hair:

When your hair is wet it is important not to rub or brush your hair,instead try gently pressing and squeezing the moisture from the hair without rubbing with the towel.
When u rub your hair it will create frizz so gentle squeeze removes more moisture and keeps your hair smooth.I would recommend using soft material like t-shirt instead of using a towel.

7.Applying hair serum:

Apply any of your favorite hair serum when your hair is wet. Hair serum controls frizz,eases out tangles and reduces breakage to give you silky and shinny hair.

8. Minimize blow drying:

Let your hair air dry until it’s about 90% dry and then blow dry your hair at the end.
While Blow drying,if your dryer has the option of blowing at reduced heat definitely go for it.By doing this it makes your hair less frizzy.

2.POTATOES:

Take a potato and wash it off with water and don’t peel  off the skin as that skin is very rich in calcium and iron which your eyes need.

•Cut two slices of potato and keep them in refrigerator for atleast 10 minutes,Place those chilled potatoes under your eyes for 15 minutes.

Another way is to grate the potato and squeeze that into a bowl.Then you’ll get juice.Apply that juice directly and leave it for 15 minutes and wash it off with normal water.

•Do this daily for atleast 10 days for best results.

3.LEMON JUICE:

Take  fresh lemon juice and by using a cotton ball apply that juice around your eyes.Leave it for about 10 minutes and rinse it off.The vitamin C present in lemon helps to remove dark circles under the eyes.

DIY Minnie mouse headband

 

Supplies:

Headband
Cardboard
Hotglue gun or fevicol
Scissors
Fabric of your choice

IMG_20171228_153315
Let’s get started:
Firstly cut the cardboard into Minnie ears shape.My cardboard is not that much thick so I’ve taken 4 cardboard ears and glued two ears together.So now we have 2 cardboard ears.

IMG_20171227_214323

Now trace these ears over the fabric of your choice and cut it out.When you cut the fabric make sure to cut it 3-4 cm more outside the traced line so you’ll get extra fabric around the edges of the ears.Cut 4 pieces of fabric.

2017-12-27 04.11.47 1.jpg

Now glue the fabric to the cardboard ears to hide all of that ugly cardboard.When you are gluing the edges make sure you glue one side first and next the other side overlapping it for more cleaner look.

IMG_20171227_214254.JPG

Like this make the other ear also.Now for a bow take another color fabric and cut into rectangular shape.

IMG_20171228_163847.JPG

 

Make foldings at the center of the fabric and take another small piece of fabric and wrap it around the folding and glue it.Cut off any excess fabric and shape the bow with your hand.

IMG_20171228_153415

Now decorate your bow with beads of your choice.

Now its time to put all the pairs together:

Glue the DIY ears to the headband and make sure that the ears are 2-3 inches apart.Hold down them for atleast 30 sec to let the glue set.Final touch is to add the bow at the center of the band and for extra security glue the bow to the ears also.

Wola!There you have this cute little Minnie mouse headband.If you have recreated this tag your pic to #lilmunchkinn in Instagram. I’d like to see yours.
