Valentine’s Day, the festival of love, is just around the corner. It is an occasion for all of us to show our love and affection for those who really matter, and those who we want alongside throughout our life. It is also an occasion for anyone to look their best, making the best of the week-long festivities associated with love. Therefore, many of us are already scouting for self-care solutions for our face, hair, and the whole body, so that there is no laxity in the preparations for D-day, February 14. But we also end up making hair mistakes.

Here are five hair mistakes that we tend to make:

1. Inadequate hydration

A common mistake committed by many is not paying attention to the hydration of the hair and scalp. It is important to understand that merely shampooing and conditioning the hair might not be sufficient for their well-being. What’s equally important, if not more, is using a chemical-free mask after using the shampoo and conditioner. The masks let the strands remain long and healthy, providing them with the extra touch of nourishment that makes the difference.

2. Excessive discolouration

Highlighting some tones with discolouration requires a lot of care, patience, and constant maintenance. Therefore, it is very important to avoid excessive discoloration, while the chemicals and toxins need to be kept strictly at bay when it comes to hair care. Always try to use more natural products, irrespective of whether it is a cream, colour, shampoo, conditioner, or mask. There would be no harmful aftereffects and the benefits would be long lasting.

3. Heat treatments

Providing heat treatment to hair is one of the most widespread mistakes committed by many people. We often either tend to forget or many might be clueless about the fact that heat treatment can permanently damage the structure of the strands. Hence, the most ideal hair care regimen should focus on keeping your hair as natural as possible.

4. Lack of oiling

Hair oiling has traditionally been a cultural practice in India for the well-being and nourishment of scalp as well as strands. Oiling the hair is healing in many ways as it can make your strands gain strength, thereby becoming lush and long.

5. Wrong cosmetics

Home-based remedies should always be the first preference for all, but is always better to complement the same with the help of carefully chosen cosmetics. Always remember to use natural vegan hair cosmetics because veganism goes beyond being a mere ideology. It is a way of respecting the environment and everyone who is part of our ecosystem. Vegan hair cosmetics do not affect nature, they treat your hair and skin naturally, and bring vigour to your routine.

The expert further said that all the aforementioned tips would help to reduce dryness, fortifying your hair, leaving it fuller, softer and longer for Valentine’s Day. Awakening female beauty through natural cosmetics based on the Indian science of Ayurveda is the best way to prep for the special day.
