Five ways to get your hair looking fantastic

by DrPrem Jagyasi

When your hair is looking healthy, thick and luscious, it makes you feel good and look great. However, if you’re leading a busy and hectic life it can leave you with little time for looking after your hair, making your locks look dry, dull and tired in no time at all.

To help you keep on top of your tresses this summer, here are five top tips on how to get your hair looking fantastic. 

1. Hair dye

A great quick-fix for damaged locks is hair dye. If your hair is looking a little lifeless, choose a shade from the Nice ‘N Easy range of hair dyes to give it some added vitality. A couple of deep conditioning treatments a few weeks before you apply the dye will help keep everything soft and silky, and colouring your hair will work especially well if you choose a shade that is darker than your natural colour.

2. Vitamins

If your hair is looking dull or greyish it could be because you’re not getting enough of the right vitamins and minerals. Some of the most essential vitamins for healthy hair are Vitamins A, B and E. These can be found in carrots, soybeans, nuts and meat so make sure you include these in your diet or take supplements if necessary.

3. Leave-in conditioner

Leave-in conditioner is perfect if you don’t have time to do long, deep conditioning treatments at home. Simply apply the conditioner to your hair after you’ve showered and rinse it out the next time you wash your hair. Your frizz will disappear in an instant and the condition of your hair will improve vastly.

4. Specialised shampoo

If you have on-going problems with your hair you may need to invest in specially formulated shampoos and conditioners. For example if your hair is cool toned it will need different nutrients to someone with auburn or brunette hair or if you suffer with frizz or dandruff you may also need specifically targeted products. Investing in these is a great way to keep your locks looking healthy and you can even find hair dyes for specific hair types.

5. Avoid brushing

Although brushing your hair is important, being too zealous with your routine will only make it brittle and aggravate any split ends. Hair is particularly fragile when it’s wet so always use a wide-toothed, detangling comb at these times and opt for a soft bristle brush for everyday use.
