Autumn is an ideal time to recharge the moisture within your locks and give your hair a rejuvenating boost. But if at this point you’re still clueless on how to give your hair the proper care it needs, you’ve come to the right place.
The founder of Siam SEAS, Supadra Geronimo, gives advice on the best way to heal and repair hair cells before winter arrives and shares her personal DIY hair mask recipe, as well.
5 Tips for a Healthy Hair this Season
- Wash your hair with a natural shampoo. Choose clean formulas that are made without Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Paraben and Polyethylene Glycol. Siam SEAS has a great collection of natural hair shampoos that are effective for different hair types. The collection addresses healing flaky dandruff, repairing damaged and dry hair, strengthening roots to help with hair loss and boosting shine for normal hair. They deliver amazing results.
- Do not use your nails to scratch your scalp. Remember your scalp is skin. Scratching your scalp will create inflammation and potentially cuts and abrasions that will require healing. Instead, use your fingertips to gently massage your scalp with the shampoo.
- Always use hair conditioner and or treatment on your scalp and locks after your shampoo. The conditioner will provide nutrients and balance the moisture loss on your scalp. Especially those with oily hair, it is very important to moisturize your hair and scalp with conditioner to help balance oil production. It is a myth that putting conditioner on the scalp creates more oily hair.
- Use a hair mask or leave the conditioner on longer. Wrap your hair with a hot towel for a few minutes while you are in the shower. Siam SEAS hair treatments are a hybrid hair conditioner and mask. You can use them daily or weekly and each collection is designed to target a different outcome. Once you rinse off the shampoo apply Siam SEAS hair treatment from scalp to ends. Wet towel with hot water, wring the towel and wrap it around your hair and scalp. Leave on from a few minutes while you shower or while having a glass of wine in a bath. This is a great way to restore your hair’s health.
- Avoid blow-drying or wet brushing your hair. Instead, gently towel dry your hair while massaging your scalp. While your hair is damp, take a few drops of your hair oil (if you do not have hair oil a facial serum will do) and apply on the end of your hair.
