Soft and Silky

Don’t Blow Dry

If you want to have soft and silky hair then use less heat on them. Whether it’s for hair styling (heated irons or rollers) or for drying your hair avoid any type of heat on your hair. Limit their use only till the special occasions if you want silky hair. All these make your hair dry and brittle thus making them prone to split ends.


Avoid Using Multiple Products

A common mistake made by people in desire of having soft and shiny hair is using multiple products. Avoid using lot of products. No matter how tempting is the new product that guarantees the long hair, it is always better to stay away from the chemical products. Instead use a smoothing serum that can effectively take care of fly-aways and nasty split ends.


Use A Restoring Conditioner On Weekly Basis

Restoring conditioners are weekly nutrient dose for soft and silky hair. Deep moisturise your dry hair and use restoring conditioners, especially if there are split ends.


Oil Massage

Take half cup of warm olive oil and gently massage it on scalp and hair. Leave for 20 to 30 minutes and then wash to get soft and silky hair.

    Quite a cool tip! I'll follow them for sure. What I know about hair is that you always need a right shampoo to make your hair stand against all the odds. I'm sorry for being too artistic but I'm obsessed of my hair. I've recently bought Nature Secrets Hot Oil for Dry and Damaged Hair Wheat & Coconut and I'm happy with the results. But my only problem is that I heard it somewhere that you shouldn't change your shampoo every now and then. Pls tell me if it's ok to change the shampooo! Thanks!
