Get gorgeous, glossy and healthy hair
Your hair is called your crowning glory for one simple reason: gorgeous, healthy and glossy hair take your looks to another level altogether.
However, none of us is endowed with hair that needs hardly any care to look stunning. Ask any hair expert and they will tell you that just like your skin, your hair too needs regular care with quality products that combine traditional healing wisdom with cutting edge science.
Here are 4 products recommended by hair experts that your hair needs to look its best.
1. Hair Oil
Ayurveda, grandma and ma have it right – oiling your hair with a good hair oil (more on it later) at least once a week is a wonderful way to improve your looks via your locks.
How to oil: Just take a small quantity hair oil. Warm it slightly. Now apply small amounts all over your scalp and massage gently for 10-15 minutes with fingertips to boost blood flow in scalp, improve flow of natural sebum and penetration of nutrients in oil into scalp and hair shafts. If you can, wrap a hot steaming towel around your head for 10 minutes. Leave overnight or at least a couple of hours. Shampoo as usual.
How often: At least once a week
How much: Depends on your hair’s length and volume – 1 tbs works for nape length hair
What your hair oil shouldn’t have: No mineral oils or paraffin oil or petrolatum or liquid paraffin
What your hair oil should have: A blend of natural botanical oils, herbal extracts and essential oils
We recommend WOW 10-in-1 Miracle Hair Oil as it contains 10 renowned natural active ingredients known to nourish hair – Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Moroccan Argan Oil, Jojoba Oil, Grape seed Oil, Safflower Oil, Bhringraj Extract, Vitamin E, and Rosemary & Tea Tree Essential Oils – that work together to revive your crowning glory.
As you must know already, shampoo cleanses your hair and scalp. However, if you are used to squeezing out a huge dollop, lathering it in your hair and washing it out – all in 2 minutes – hold it. Shampoo is much more than a hurried washing away of accumulated dirt and sweat from your scalp and tresses.
How to shampoo: Wet hair thoroughly with warm (not hot) water. Apply a generous amount of the shampoo as per the length and volume of your hair. Massage all over scalp and tresses gently with fingertips (not nails) for 2-3 minutes. Wash with plenty of plain water. Follow with a cold water rinse for extra cuticle smoothening. Pat gently with a micro-absorbent towel. Do not rub your hair.
How much: Depends on your hair’s length and volume
What your shampoo shouldn’t have: No sulphates or parabens or mineral oils
What your shampoo should have: Natural botanical bioactives
We recommend shampoos from WOW’s Skin Science Range – WOW Miracle 10-in-1 Shampoo, WOW Apple Cider Vinegar Shampoo, WOW Hair Strengthening Shampoo, and if you have dandruff, WOW Anti Dandruff Shampoo. All these shampoos are guaranteed free of harmful sulphates, parabens and mineral oils. And all have been enriched with premium botanical oils, extracts and essential oils.
3. Hair Conditioner
A hair conditioner penetrates hair to smoothen down roughened cuticles to improve smoothness, gloss and texture. A good hair conditioner also heals damage inflicted by chemicals, dyes, pollutants and heat treatments.
How to use:
• After every shampoo, apply conditioner to hair ends.
• Once a week, massage in hair conditioner all over scalp and hair. Leave on for 5-10 minutes and rinse.
• Once a month, apply hair conditioner as a hair mask and wrap head with a steaming towel. Leave for one hour and wash off.
Do your last hair rinse with cold water for best results.
How much: Depends on your hair’s length, volume and intended coverage area
What your conditioner shouldn’t have: No sulphates or parabens or mineral oils
What your conditioner should have: Botanical oils and plant proteins
We recommend WOW Hair Conditioner that has been enriched with almond, coconut, argan, and castor oils plus soy and wheat proteins. Of course, it is also free of parabens, sulphates and mineral oils.
4. Hair Revitalizer
A good hair revitalizer is a non-greasy, quick-dry liquid spray that works like a hair serum to instantly smoothen down rough cuticles, tame frizz and replenish hair’s nutritional needs to improve texture while also slowing down hair fall and split ends.
How to use: Just spray and massage a small amount onto scalp and along the length of hair and comb gently.
How much: Depends on your hair’s length and volume
What your hair revitalizer shouldn’t have: No sulphates or parabens or mineral oils
What your hair revitalizer should have: Natural botanical bioactives
We recommend WOW 10-in-1 Active Miracle Hair Revitalizer. It is totally non-greasy, quick drying and contains several trusted and clinically proven hair loving bioactives – Extracts of Safflower, Amla, Horse Chestnut, Rosemary, Tea Tree & Lemon, plus Vitamins A, B5, B7, E & F. All the key ingredients are Ecocert Certified and organic to ensure best quality hair care.
While we completely leave it your judgement over which product is best for your to use, we hope you can consider the Wow Ultimate Hair Care Kit as there is nothing better than these products for your hair.
