So, you’ve decided to proactively take better care of your hair. But, what now? Where should you begin? What products should you use? What forgotten gems do you already own that are hidden in your beauty cabinet or under your bathroom sink?
If you’re anything like me, you’re something of a product junkie. For years, I purchased every new product that promised stronger, healthier hair almost the second it came on the market. But, honestly, I had no idea where to even start with my hair. I’ve battled with my damaged hair for so long that I have often been tempted to just “throw in the towel!” Yet, I have come to learn that I need to first get my expectations in order. After all, there is only so much that hair products can do! True, they may aid in aesthetically improving the outer appearance and texture of hair. But, generally, this is only a mere illusion that is masking the cumulative damage within.
Undoing all of the damage you may have caused your hair could take weeks, months, or even a year, depending on the type and level of hair trauma you are working with. So, be patient. Your hair may require a considerable amount of effort to repair the damage. Take some time and evaluate the products you’ve purchased or considered adding to your current hair regimen. Reassess the methods and techniques you use on a daily basis to style your hair. With a little trial and error, you will be able to come up with a solid hair care regimen that produces results and stands the test of time.
