What is the perfect haircare routine?

Shampoo, conditioner and any shower product should be applied first, followed by heat protection, a volumizer or foam, and a brightening serum. Then you can dry and style your hair, fixing it with a gel (or a similar product) and hairspray. If you have dry hair or if you like to style and color your hair frequently, we recommend using a leave-in conditioner on days when you wash your hair. This product will not only moisturize your hair, but it will also make your hair look shinier and, therefore, healthier.

The leave-in conditioner is best applied to damp hair and before using heat styling tools. However, keep the product away from the roots. Apply it only to the strands to keep the scalp clean and free of grease. After applying the leave-in conditioner, but before using the styling tools, cover the strands of hair with a little heat protector.

Heat shields act as a protective barrier between the hair and the hot styling tool. This prevents the strands from drying out, frying and becoming dull. According to long-time beauty gurus, the best way to dry your hair is to air dry it 70 to 80 percent and then blow dry it until it's completely dry. Now that the wash is out of the way, how about it dries? Absorb excess water with a microfiber towel and avoid rubbing your hair between non-microfiber towels.

The only real appearance of a haircare routine was that every few weeks I would put coconut oil on my hair, which ended up weighing it more than it actually added moisture.
