When we think of flawlessly smooth hair, then celebrity Jennifer Anniston often comes to mind. Her hair is awe-inspiringly luminous, without a strand out of place. But – she has Hollywood’s top stylists at her beck and call, so of course her hair is always going to look delectably supple and stunning!
The good news is that you don’t have to have a ticket to the red carpet to earn designer locks like Miss Anniston. You simply need to be hair-smart and have access to the right luxury haircare products. This way, you too can have noteworthy tresses that become the envy of all who look upon you.
Below, we’ll share professional haircare advice so that you never have to settle for dry, brittle hair.
Easy Ways to Get Silky, Smooth Hair
Step One: Know Your Hair Type
Understanding your hair type is important because it will help you to know how to best apply the next steps. It’s also good to familiarise yourself with your hair’s behaviour when shopping for softening and moisturising products that will be the most effective.
For example, dry and coarse hair can certainly use some extra TLC and would thrive with the use of a weekly deep-conditioning hair mask. Fine and limp hair, on the other hand, tends to become overbearingly oily if it’s too deeply conditioned.
Also, straight hair may not need as much added moisture when compared to curly hair. This is because the straighter your hair is, the easier oils move through the cuticle.
Understanding your hair-type will point you in the right direction so that smooth and soft hair is realistically attainable.
Step Two: Be Mindful When Shampooing
Shampoo is appreciated for its cleansing properties but if it’s used too often or applied too liberally, it can leave your hair looking frazzled and overstimulated. What does this mean? It means you need to be mindful of when and how you wash your hair.
Cleansing ingredients have a habit of stripping the good away with the bad. In this case, the “good” is your natural hair oil that your scalp produces to moisturise and nourish your strands, repairing and smoothening them in its wake. To ensure that your hair oil gets its moment to shine (pun intended); the solution is easy. Simply wash your hair less often! Wash your hair once or twice a week only to ensure that your locks are naturally hydrated and softened.
Another thing you want to avoid is a shampoo brand that’s loaded with sulfates. Sulfates will remove natural oils from your scalp and hair, leaving it dryer than if a sulfate-free alternative was used.
Try Rossano Ferreti Parma’s Sulfate-Free Smoothing Shampoo for the BEST results. Adorned with macadamia and avocado, this nourishing shampoo has been created to tame even the wildest hair. The result – hair that’s silky, smooth, and manageable.
Step Three: Dry Your Hair with Care
Drying your hair should be treated as a delicate process. This is because your strands are at their most vulnerable when they are wet and tangled. If handled too roughly, your locks could be riddled with untameable flyaways.
You may also want to take it easy on the heat. Hot styling tools such as blow-dryers and curling tongs can remove moisture from your locks, leaving them dehydrated and brittle. Allow your hair to dry naturally when you can and if you must apply heat, use a protective product that will help to seal in moisture for smoother-looking strands.
Tip: After drying your hair with heat, blast it with cold air to seal the cuticle shaft. This will lock in moisture and leave your strands in a smoother condition.
And whatever you do – DON’T attempt to dry your hair by rubbing with a towel, to avoid leaving your hair frizzier than it needs to be and increasing the likelihood of hair fall and breakage. If you like to soak the water out of your hair after a wash, rather use a soft cotton T-shirt or pat dry your hair rather than rubbing. This will help you to reduce the friction that fluffs up the cuticle, causing knots and breakage.
