Hair dilemma #3: Uncontrollable static
That friction we were talking about – it’s a common concern for those of us who swear by washing our hair in the evenings. Static hair can seem uncontrollable at times as it seems the more we try to do to tame it, the worse it gets. Before you get your hair in a mess, try this one simple trick. Get your hair dryer on the hottest setting and blast your hair in smaller sections than you would usually style your hair in. Concentrating the heat in small sections will ensure all the excess moisture (what gives hair a positive charge and makes it static in the first place) is being zapped out of the hair so the hair strands sit flat.
Hair dilemma #4: A dry, uncomfortable scalp
If your scalp feels tight and uncomfortable, it’s probably got something to do with product buildup. Product buildup can block the roots of the hair causing excess sebum to be produced making hair lank and difficult to manage. Here’s the one time we’d make the exception to make a last-minute dash for the shower and prioritise making time to wash your hair in a morning instead of trying to salvage it with an updo. If your scalp is dry and uncomfortable, adding unnecessary pressure to it by pulling your hair up into a tight ponytail in an effort to disguise your scalp will just make matters worse.
When you must wash your hair to relieve an uncomfortable scalp, our Defence Detoxifying Scalp Scrub is perfect to rebalance the sensitive skin on our scalp while removing product build-up and adding crucial moisture back into the skin. With natural castor oil beads and pomegranate enzymes to exfoliate the scalp, unblocking the roots and breaking down dead skin cells.
As this has a rich blend of minerals to hydrate hair and scalp, you should be able to get away with leaving the hair to air dry as hair will be soft and nourished so you can make back the time it took to wash your hair so you’re still on track with your morning routine.
