8 Hair Care Tips You Probably Didn’t Know About

I don’t always have a great hair day, but when I do, I feel like a freshly groomed Shetland show pony. Case in point here. So, in honor of giving women everywhere the joyful feeling of more great hair days (coastal pony or not), I’m sharing 8 hair care tips you probably didn’t know about.

The best part is that these tips just so happen to work no matter what products you use and on all kinds of hair types, so there’s something for everyone. That said, I just took the Pantene 14 Day Challenge to try the Rose Water Collection (yes, I was persuaded by how pretty the bottle was, so shoot me) in case you’re looking for an ultra-hydrating duo that’s also free of parabens, sulfates, dyes and mineral oil. 

I have to say, my hair DOES feel noticeably softer after 14 days of using it, but I didn’t include before and after photos because softness is a little tricky to showcase in photos. Haha! I would definitely recommend it for those experiencing dry hair but I tend to lean on the already naturally moisturized side (ahem, trying to be more eloquent in saying greasy), so I still stand by my tried and true Activated Charcoal Collection that I wrote about here. SO, so good for those with naturally oily hair or people living in humid climates (also me).

Did you know to only use a wide tooth comb? - 8 Hair Care Tips You Probably Didn't Know About by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth #haircare #tips #beauty #style #listicle #hairstyle #selfcare self care for the win! -- 8 Hair Care Tips You Probably Didn't Know About by top Houston lifestyle blogger Ashley Rose of Sugar & Cloth #haircare #tips #beauty #style #listicle #hairstyle #selfcare

8 Hair Care Tips You Probably Didn’t Know About

  1. Brush & detangle your hair before shampooing and conditioning so that the product reaches all areas of your hair.
  2. Clean your hair utensils at least once a month to avoid product build up.
  3. When you’re letting your hair air dry, massage the roots of your hair after towel drying for more volume so that it doesn’t dry flat to your scalp.
  4. Only condition your hair from the mid-shaft down to the tips of your hair and be sure to let the conditioner set for at least 60 seconds before rinsing.
  5. Wring your wet hair out in the shower before using conditioner so that it’s able to absorb better.
  6. Only brush wet hair gently with a wide tooth comb, starting at the ends moving up to the roots.
  7. If you have notoriously dry hair, only shampoo your scalp down to mid-shaft, not the ends of your hair.
  8. To fill an inconsistent hairline (I’m looking at you postpartum hair wings!!), use an eyeshadow that’s the same color of your root hair for a stronger hairline.

Do ya’ll have any hair care tips to share with me that weren’t on the list? Don’t hold out! I feel like I’ve maybe been living in a cave. Haha!

    Why would you only condition mid-shaft to roots? It would make more sense to conditions end opposed to roots

    • You are so correct! Thank you for pointing that out, Jess. We meant to state “mid-shaft to the tip/end”. That has been corrected.

  • Yvette Pittman

    I was JUST thinking the same thing! Must be a typo…

    • Yes, totally a typo! Don’t condition the roots. We meant to saw mid-shaft to the tips.

    Any recommendations on conditioner that doesn’t smell? Even the slightest odor gives me a headache.

    • Oh no! We are sorry to hear that! The best thing about hair care products are the scents! Honest Company makes a fragrance free conditioner. We’ve heard good things about the JASON Fragrance Free Daily Conditioner. (It’s got good reviews on Amazon.) We actually like the Vanicream line. It’s targeted for people with sensitive skin so it’s fragrance free. Dermatologist are always recommending the line.

    Vague tips, and not very beneficial tips, just a fraction of the who tip being produced for each one. Ex: ” Only brush wet hair gently with a wide tooth comb, starting at the ends moving up to the roots”..or use a leave in conditioner like “it’s a 10 or a nutrient based , silicone-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free with a Wet brush made for specifically for wet hair which helps with detangling your hair when wet.” Also another comment about massaging scalp when wet, to make it work for all types, a styling product needs to be applied minimally on the hair base- , whether dry shampoo, grooming cream, or whatever holds your hair without weight and apply in a circular motion to scalp/base of hair shaft. You can repeat without product once it’s completely dry, starting at the back aka the nape, and work up and around the head to the crown. For more oomph on top really massage right on your part line, moving finger tips in small circular motion. Doing this also helps nourish your hair and promoting growth due to more blood flow to the scalp and hair follicles.
    Oh, and conditioner must be on your hair for a minimum of 1 min for it to be of any benefit…not up to 60 secs.
    There. Now you learned some thing. 18 yr hair stylist, platform artist, salon owner.
    Please son’t educate on things you don’t know or share knowledge without a degree or license, just to put something out there to keep your blog on a roll. Write what you know, have facts and from credible sources of where or who you got the knowledge and information you’re out sending to the world.

    • Hi Michael! Thank you for sharing your tips as a hair stylist. You’re right! We don’t have a degree (hence us asking for everyone’s hair care tips also). We hope no one assumed that we were licensed experts. We just wanted to share our experience and routines that have been effective for us! We learned a lot doing the Pantene challenge and even got recommendations from us and our hair stylists. Like Rose commented, we don’t have all the answers but hope to answer some for others. You’re tips were seriously very helpful and thank you for checking out our blog! P.S. You are totally correct about conditioner needing a minimum of 60-seconds, we meant to state “at least 60-seconds”. Thanks for letting us know!

    Maybe be a little nicer to this girl. She was pretty spot on with helping others with hair care. I am a hairdresser as well and we all do NOT have all the answers. Be kind.

    • Thank you, Rose for your kind words especially coming for a hairdresser. :) We use to be clueless (and we are still learning) and the purpose of the post was just to share our knowledge!

  • Jazmin Jaime

    Ryan, and what did you being rude accomplish for anyone? Nothing! You actually sound bitter in you”18 year” career, a hater actually. Smh.

  • Di

    02.01.19

    I actually agree with Ryan. I’m no professional but even I knew that some of the advice wasn’t great. It’s true that if you are going to blog about a subject, you need to make sure that all information is spot on.
    I’m not knocking writer but if you need to be able to take the criticsm as well as praise.

    • Don’t worry! We weren’t offended! Like we said in the post, we didn’t want anyone holding out on us with their hair care advice because we really do feel like we’ve maybe been living in a cave.

  • Cath

    Ah, hair care. I have a very fine and thin hair. It is easy to maintain but once I change shampoos, my scalp and hair roots revolt! :) Thanks for the tips.

    Hi, I’m also a blogger and provide reviews on shampoo products for each hairs types. But after reading your article it made me feel so clarified and satisfied but the content you provided, its a whole sum. And I should mention, after following your hair care tips a person will definitely going to have visible results. Keep providing such informative articles.

    • Thank you, Rose! That’s wonderful to hear from another fellow blogger, especially one who reviews hair products. We’ll definitely check out your site!

  • Hey, great work!
    your hair care tips are very amazing, I’ll be telling my content writer to add these one on my website https://holistichairhealth.com/, Keep providing such amazing hacks for hairs, I’ll be looking forward to them.

    • Thanks, Jennifer! It means a lot from a hair expert. XOXO

  • Girl, please don’t pay attention to Ryan’s saying, he is not worth for spending time. I run https://illumiflow.com/, suggesting people to use Laser Cap for overcoming alopecia, and face many negative reverts, take them as challenges and continue to spread good will. Keep publishing more article or the people who wait for your articles, because we love your information.

    • Lol. Thank you, Martha! That’s awesome that you get to share your experience too! That’s all we try to do because we think any personal feedback helps (whether or not you’re an expert or not). And yes, spreading the word always means there will be positive and negative reverts but that’s to be expected! Plus, negative feedback isn’t always bad. :)
