Party, Party, Party! And party is over. Now it’s time to look back at your skin, hair and body after the Christmas and New Year parties. In my previous post, I’ve shared how to detox your skin fast with simple kitchen ingredients after the party season. In this post, I will share with you some proven tips and home recipes that will help you to detox hair and get rid of dry damaged hair in seven days, if done right.
Party season is the time when we tend to experiment with our hair and styling a lot. And we generally ignore the after-care part. Trust me, after partying hard and having a gala time out there, it’s very usual that our body gives up and we are always in a hurry to go to bed. As a result, removing makeup properly, combing the hair back to shape or dedicating a few minutes to take the first steps of after-treatment is easily struck off the routine. Know how to get rid of harmful residues of cosmetic hair products and how to take care of your hair that is treated with harsh styling agents.
The First Thing to Do
What are parties without dancing your heart out? And what’s dance without letting your hair down? Yes, of course, you’ve done it but now what? Read on how to get rid of your heavily tangled hair. No matter how hard you party, never forget to comb your hair nicely before going to bed. I always suggest not using detangling lotions frequently because they do nothing but thin your hair. But during emergencies, you may use them to detangle your hair to avoid tearing your hair strands off. After combing your hair well, if it is feasible for you, then warm some coconut oil or almond oil and massage on to your hair. Leave on overnight and shampoo on the next day. Putting oil on to your hair will combat the evident dryness that you will otherwise welcome the next morning.
After-Party Hair Care Tips
Hair straightening, using lacquer, hair gels and sprays often turn your hair massively dry and the problem worsens during the party season because of the lack of maintenance. Whenever you are partying late night, ensure to have a hair spa done the next day, including deep conditioning. But make sure to clean your scalp and hair first before applying a hair pack. Below are two simple home remedies for hair care that you can easily make out of ingredients available in your kitchen.
Yes, you read that right. It’s fenugreek! If possible, soak a cup of fenugreek seeds in plain water overnight or if you don’t have much time to spare, soak them for 3-4 hours. Make a paste and apply on your dry scalp and hair strands nicely. Leave on for 30 minutes and then wash off. This hair mask not only just cleanses your hair and scalp thoroughly, but also leaves your hair soft. You need not shampoo after washing off the pack. But if you don’t want your hair to smell spicy, you may use a mild shampoo after this pack. To get best results, try to avoid shampoo on the hair pack day.
Deep Conditioning Cottage Cheese Hair Pack
Cottage cheese is a very common kitchen ingredient. Take 3 tablespoons of cottage cheese and whip it well to bring it to a cream consistency. To this add 1 tablespoon of honey and mix well with the cream. Apply this hair mask to only your hair (exclude the scalp) and leave on for 30 minutes. Shampoo off the hair. This is one of the best hair packs to treat dry and damaged hair. It provides beautiful deep conditioning and leaves your hair looking healthy and shiny.
There is absolutely no reason to freak out and worry. You only need to dedicate a little time every day from your schedule to take care of your skin, hair and body after the party season. When you understand the nature of your skin, hair and body and you have some great, proven tips of care in hand, you will see results in just seven days. Come on, you can do it.
