Recycle Out Of Date Hair Products
Check the expiry dates on your shampoos and conditioners and recycle those bottles that are out of date. Hair sprays are less likely to deteriorate but do check all cream or liquid-based products in tubs and bottles. Now you've decluttered your bathroom cupboards, you can restock with fresh supplies of your favourite products, or find something new. Pop into our Wimbledon salon and we'll be happy to advise you.
Clean Your Hair Brushes
Regularly clear hair out of your hair brushes and wash them every week using a cleansing shampoo to avoid brushing dirt and grease back into your hair! If you use a wooden or paddle brush, check the manufacturer's guidelines on washing so you don't spoil the wood effect, a quick swish with hot water should be sufficient.
Wipe Clean Your Electrical Tools
Curlers, hair straighteners and curling wands should also be cleaned regularly to get rid of germs, dirt, sprays and serums. Dirty tools will transfer dirt back onto your hair and affect how well you can style! Unplug your electrical tools before cleaning and NEVER submerge them in water. Use a damp (not wet) cloth to clean the styling plates and make sure they are completely dry before you use them again.
Empty Your Hairdryer Filter
A hairdryer filter that is full of dirt and dust can really affect how your dryer performs. Check your manufacturer's instructions first and make sure your dryer is unplugged before removing the filter. Then simply wipe with a damp cloth to remove dirt and dust, again ensuring that it is completely dry before you switch it on again.
Upgrade Your Bedding
What has your bedding got to do with your hair? You spend a good few hours every night with your hair and face rubbing against your pillowcases, which can cause hair breakage, bacteria transfer and even wrinkles in your face! A silky pillowcase can reduce friction and dermatologists say that sleeping on a silky smooth surface will make your skin less prone to wrinkles too, so it's definitely worth a try! If you don't want a silky pillowcase, ensure that your bedding is washed regularly to avoid bacteria build up.
