5 Fabulous Tips for Better Hair Care! – Guava & Gold

5 Fabulous Tips for Better Hair Care!

We all want to maintain our hair and achieve a silky and healthy look. With our five little (but amazing) tips which work on all hair types, you can keep your hair looking fresh all day so, hopefully, you won’t have to keep searching to find the best advice for you and your hair.

Let Your Hair Dry Naturally!
This might seem like an obvious one but this also means no towel drying either! The best way to remove excess water from your hair while you wait for it to dry is with an old cotton T-shirt! A cotton T-shirt is much gentler than a towel to squeeze any excess water out, ensuring your hair won’t be damaged in the process. 

Use a Wide Toothed Comb on Wet Hair!
While we are talking about fresh out the shower hair, using your favourite hairbrush on wet hair can cause more damage than good because hair breaks more easily when it’s wet. Instead, try using a wide-tooth comb when de-tangling damp or wet hair but also make sure to be as gentle as possible whilst doing so.

Correct Conditioner Application
We all love using conditioner and seeing how glossy it makes our hair look but many of us aren’t using the correct conditioner application. A big reminder for where we should place conditioner is if we think about where our hair gets greasiest first – which is normally always at the roots. This should serve as a guide to skip our roots and only apply from mid-lengths to ends. Conditioning at the roots can end up weighing down your hair and making it look greasier quicker! Why not try our Paradise Found Conditioner, which will leave your hair smelling gorgeously of the seductive scents of mandarin, freesia and pear blossom whilst conditioning at the same time. Just a little bit of our conditioners goes a long way. 

Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase
Silk pillowcases are not just great for your skin but also your hair! Friction is often to blame when it comes to split ends and it does not help those of us who are prone to hair frizz. Silk pillowcases can reduce friction, giving you hair which is sleeker and smoother as well as improving hair hydration. Cotton pillowcases absorb your hair care products and can be unnecessarily harsh on your strands… so it looks like it could be time to invest in a silk alternative for the easiest way to maintain beautiful hair!

Think about how often you wash your hair!  
It has been a debate that has divided many but washing your hair everyday isn’t actually the right thing for everyone. For some of us, washing your hair too much can throw off your scalp's microbiome (good bacteria that helps keep your hair strong and healthy) and that might sometimes lead to bad bacteria and fungi taking over and causing issues like inflammation. If your hair seems brittle and lifeless, it could be a victim of hair over-washing. Why not try our bestselling duo, our Coco & Cherimoya Shampoo and Conditioner which combine warm notes of tropical coconut and peachy cherimoya to keep your hair smelling amazing and feeling unbelievably fresh until the next time you wash it.

Our products have been designed to transport you to a blissful paradise while helping you maintain glossy and nourished hair and healthy skin.
