A man of many talents, he gives so much passion into his work which the result turned out to be more than amazing. His most recent work involves styling Lancome’s newest ambassador, Venice Min. Here’s how you can maintain healthy hair all by yourself, at home.
“Tip 1 – Choose a shampoo and conditioner from the same line as they have a similar formulation. These are made for a specific hair type and a specific purpose. It shows better results when you use a single line instead of two individual products.
Tip 2 – When washing your hair , prefer warm or cold water over hot water. Cold doesn’t exactly mean freezing cold – you can use water at room temperature. Hot and warm water opens up the hair cuticles and the pores on the epidermis. If the water is too hot, it can damage your hair. Use warm water for shampooing. After you have conditioned your hair, rinse it off with cold water.
Tip 3 – Hair of all types, textures, and tints can always benefit from a deep treatment. Use a right hair mask after wash and leave it for 10 min . Missing this step could be the reason your hair is frizzy.
Tip 4 – Simply apply a serum or any type of oil (Argan oil , coconut oil )work it evenly throughout your lengths and ends. Whether you have straight hair, curly hair, or hair that’s somewhere in between, keeping your strands hydrated is a surefire way to keep them looking healthy, strong, and beautiful.”
