Your Selfcare Guide to Healthy Hair

The Autumnal weather is here and whilst we’ve been waiting all year for a Pumpkin Spice Latte, the change of season (and the on-going pandemic situation) can leave us feeling a little low. Like never before, selfcare has become our saviour and we definitely have more time on our hands right now. So, no more excuses, we’ve got our top tips for some self-care to really benefit your tresses and we all know good hair – makes us feel good!

First up you may like to try something specifically designed to clean your scalp removing product build-up and soothe any areas dry areas. Malibu C’s Scalp Therapy, as the name suggests, will clean and nourish the scalp too. Your scalp is literally the root of healthy hair so well worth adding this to your homecare routine every week.

Whilst washing your hair, try a little extra scalp massage. Keep it gentle, especially if you have your extensions in, and concentrate on stimulating your scalp to ease those stresses away and boost the blood’s circulation to your hair follicles, encouraging hair growth.

Post bath time, then wrap you your tresses in a hair towel to help absorb the excess water and keep your head warm whilst you grab your loungewear and a cheeky hot chocolate. Well, the calcium from the milk helps feed your hair with plenty of protein, and Cocoa is packed with vitamins and nutrients for healthy hair. Like you needed that excuse to enjoy a cup of steaming hot chocolate!

Before settling in front of Netflix, comb your tresses through to remove any knots and indulge in some extra TLC. Have the sharp cold winds dried out your locks? Maybe the central heating has brought out the frizz? That leave-in treatment is your next step to rescue your hair and create healthy, shiny locks by morning. We love Moroccan Oil’s Masks and Oils for this.

Remember to avoid your extension bond areas with any product and for those of you with bonds or micro rings, it’s always wise to put your hair dryer on a low heat setting and gently dry the bonds to stop water ingress from breaking them down.

Don’t you feel better already? “I’m washing my hair tonight” has real benefits for your overall wellbeing, taking time out to nourish yourself as well as your hair. Making this a part of your life each week will give you the beautiful healthy hair you crave.

Your Ultimate 2017 Hair Kit

It takes a lot to look this good, ladies. For those of us not blessed with wonderfully styled hair as soon as we roll out of bed, there’s a whole host of hair products and tools in our arsenal to give us a helping hand. Take a look at the Additional Lengths ultimate hair kit to check off if you have everything you need for a good hair day.

Tangle Teezer

We have an excellent range of the popular Tangle Teezer brushes here at Additional Lengths. The pros of this unique brush include the soft teeth which flex and collapse as they ‘teeze’ hair tangles and knots, which minimises breakage. No more shall you wince through the pain of brushing out tangles! Every girl needs a Tangle Teezer compact brush in their handbag for on the go tangle teezing. The Tangle Teezer blow styling brush in half paddle and full paddle are fantastic for blow drying the hair straight with minimal tugging on the scalp and reduced frizz on the lengths. This hairbrush design is ideal for using with hair extensions due to the gentle brushing action.

Heat defence spray

If there’s one absolute must-have on this list, we believe it’s this: a quality heat defence spray or heat protection cream. This will save your tresses the heartache of damage from heated stylers. As you’re probably aware, repeated use of straighteners or curling wands can really take it’s toll on human hair extensions, as well as natural hair. A good heat defence spray such as the Moroccan Oil Heat Styling Protection spray will protect the hair with a thin barrier against the heat, reducing the possibility of dryness and those dreaded split ends.

Salon quality hairdryer

Not only are hairdryers a practical item to own, they can also help create hair styles, or prep the hair for continued styling. We stock premium quality hair dryers by ghd which offer advanced ionic technology to minimise frizz and flyaways, plus a cool air setting to help lock your style in place. Create volume by blow drying your hair upside down, or smooth the hair shaft downwards using a brush to create a straight finish. Salon-style blow dries are only a click away!

Curling wand

On those days you just fancy giving beachy waves or elegant curls a go, you need to invest in a salon worthy curling wand. Sure, you can create some lovely waves with a straightener using the right moves, but for a no nonsense curl, we turn to the wave wand or curl tong from ghd.

Hair spray

Hairspray is literally the product which holds everything together. A wave or curl would be nothing without it. A good hairspray offers a flexible to strong weather resistant hold which easily brushes out, leaving no heavy residue in the hair. We love the Sexy Hair hairspray range which also provides illuminating shine and unbelievable volume, lift and hold.
