Waking up to fallen hair on your pillows and seeing all the loose strands catch on the shower drain are like scenes from a nightmare—but for many women, this happens to them on a daily basis, maybe even for you. There are a number of reasons why some women lose more hair than the average amount, one of them being increased levels of stress.
Perhaps it’s the current work-from-home arrangement, your coworkers sending emails way past office hours, or feeling stretched thin despite having more time that’s keeping your cortisol (also known as the stress hormone) levels high. Whatever the cause of your hair fall, you can help address your tress-stress and #DefyToBeGreater by updating your hair care routine into a more preventive approach. Here’s how:
Wash your hair with a shampoo designed for your hair needs.
Aside from your hair type (straight, wavy, curly, etc.), you should also take note of your other hair needs to know which kind of shampoo suits you best, like one with keratin or caffeine to combat hair fall. Keratin is a widely popular hair care ingredient that’s also naturally produced in the body that helps strengthen your hair and prevent breakage. Meanwhile, a 2007 study suggests that shampoo with caffeine or coffee bean extract can stimulate hair growth.
Condition your tresses with a keratin-rich product.
When it’s time to condition your hair, massage about a five-peso-coin-sized dollop through the length of your hair (except the roots!), and use your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to distribute it evenly.
If you’re experiencing hair fall, try switching to the Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Ultra Conditioner to strengthen your tresses daily. It has a triple keratin complex: keratin serum that helps prevent hair damage, keratin relaxers that help keep frizz at bay, and keratin essence that helps lock in breakage protection. The Cream Silk conditioner also includes revolutionary fiber actives that help penetrate the hair surface to nourish your strands at a cellular level.
Apply nourishing treatments that protect your hair when styling.
When using a curling iron, straightener, or blow dryer, never put them in the highest heat setting or else you’ll fry your strands, allowing damage and breakage to happen to your already brittle mane. More than that, make sure you have heat protectant applied on your hair prior to styling so your tresses are shielded from the heat. Heat protectants come in sprays, mousses, creams, and oils, so choose one that best suits your hair type for a gorgeous look once you’re all dolled up. You can apply nourishing treatments like Cream Silk Triple Keratin Rescue Ultimate Hair Fall Defiance Treatment Shot once a week to help protect your hair from extreme factors that cause hair fall and breakage.
Master the art of blow drying.
First, you should be using the right blow dryer attachment. Use the narrow nozzle for straight or wavy hair or attach the diffuser for curly locks. Next, you should blow dry your hair in sections (a hair clip goes a long way) to avoid overdrying and eventually damaging your hair. Finally, keep a round brush handy to dry your straight or wavy hair evenly. Pro-tip: A round brush with a wide surface and vents can shorten your drying time and avoid your tresses from being exposed to heat longer than it needs to be.
