For Every Hair Type, Here Are Our Best Hair Care and Styling Tips

Certain hair care advice are universal, regardless of whether you have curly hair, thin hair, oily hair, dry hair, or any other type of hair. While you should personalise your routine to your hair type, knowing the fundamentals of hair care is just as vital, if not more so. That's why, regardless of hair type, we're offering the greatest hair care and styling advice. Continue reading to discover 21 hair tips to help you start taking better care of your locks.

WASH YOUR HAIR WITH LUKEWARM WATER FIRST

Scalding showers may feel calming, but they're not worth it if you're being honest with yourself. That almost-too-hot-to-touch water can actually take essential oils from your hair, leaving it feeling drier and looking duller. So, the next time you get in the shower, turn down the heat. Cleansing with lukewarm water is just as effective as using hot water, but it is gentler on your hair.

Editor's note: You know how much you like hot water? It's also a disservice to your skin! Your warm baths could be to blame if you notice your skin feels dry.

CONDITION YOUR HAIR PROPERLY

You probably already know you should use conditioner, but are you sure you're applying it correctly? Consider where your hair gets greasy first—usually the roots—and use it as a reminder that conditioner should only be applied to specific portions of your hair. Apply conditioner from the mid-lengths to the ends, avoiding the roots. Conditioning your hair at the roots might weigh it down. For application advice, use a wide-tooth comb to distribute the conditioner into your hair, which will help untangle your hair. Use a moisturising shampoo and conditioner system, such as Morfose Shampoo and Morfose Conditioner, to keep your hair moisturised.

APPLY SHAMPOO DIRECTLY TO THE SCALP

Shampoo, unlike conditioner, should be focussed on the scalp, rather than the lengths and ends of your strands, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). Only washing the lengths and ends of your hair can dehydrate strands and make them look dull, dry, and lifeless. Because your scalp (which produces oil and sheds skin cells on a regular basis) is in desperate need of washing, concentrate your shampooing efforts on your head and roots.

RINSE EXTREMELY CAREFULLY

You're almost ready to step out of the shower, which means washing away any leftover product. Make sure to thoroughly wipe everything off, as residual substance might cause buildup.

DON'T USE A TOWEL TO DRY OFF

Although a towel appears to be the most obvious way to remove extra water and begin drying your hair after a shower, it may not be the greatest option. One of our most useful hair hints? Squeeze out any extra water, then pat dry with an old cotton T-shirt rather than a towel.

BEFORE HEAT STYLING, PROTECT YOUR HAIR

We all love the way our hair looks after a blowout or a session of heat styling, but too much heat styling can damage your hair. While we don't expect you to give up your hot tools entirely, there is one tiny change you must make when utilising heat to style. Applying a protective product first should be done every time. One of our most crucial hair recommendations is to use a heat protectant spray before blow-drying, straightening, or curling your hair.

USE A BRUSH TO BLOW-DRY

Blow-drying your hair isn't the easiest technique to acquire (to be sure), but you might have more success if you use a round brush. Brush your hair in the same direction you're blow-drying it and pull it straight with the brush for a smoother finish. While you're at it, move your blow dryer from roots to ends rather than vice versa to avoid frizz.

DRY HAIR SHOULD ONLY BE STRAIGHTENED AND CURLED

Consider what happens when you pour water into a hot skillet, and then consider if you want your hair to experience the same thing. We don't believe so! When your strands are moist or even slightly damp, you should never use a curling iron or hair straightener. Allowing your hair to completely dry, whether by air drying or using a blow dryer, is definitely worth the wait.

CHANGE UP YOUR PART

The simplest hair care methods can have a huge influence on your hair. Changing where you separate your hair is all it takes to give your hair a larger appearance. When you switch to the other side, you'll see your roots have more lift.

TAKE A BREAK FROM PONYTAILS FOR THE STRANDS

Ponytails have been around for a long time for a reason. Just consider how useful it is to be able to sweep all of your hair away from your face. Even so, that doesn't mean they're correct 100% of the time. Pulling your hair up every day puts undue stress on your tresses. Wear your hair down more regularly, with lower and looser ponytails and gentler hair ties that won't irritate your scalp.

USE HAIRSPRAY TO MAINTAIN YOUR LOOK

When using these suggestions, don't forget to add the finishing touch. With a strong-hold, weather-control hairspray, you can ensure that your hairdo lasts no matter where you go or what you do. Morfose Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray is a great option. After a few hours of wear, a quick layer of hairspray could make all the difference in how your hair looks.

YOUR SCALP, TOO, REQUIRES ATTENTION

Consider this: your scalp is also skin, and it's an extension of your face. Your scalp, like the rest of your skin, requires regular exfoliation. Unfortunately, a buildup of oil, dead skin cells, and leftover product on your scalp can make it overburdened and unhealthy. Scrub your scalp with the Morfose Everfresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub once or twice a month.

SLEEP ON A PILLOWCASE MADE OF SILK

Cotton pillows can absorb hair care products and be hard on your strands unnecessarily. One of our simplest hair care recommendations is to switch to a silk or satin pillowcase to improve your beauty sleep.

WHEN YOUR HAIR NEEDS REFRESHING, USE DRY-SHAMPOO

Is your hair a little greasy? To keep your roots looking their best, use a revitalising dry shampoo. When choosing a dry shampoo, seek for components like clay that will do the job without leaving any residue.

REGULARLY IN DEEP CONDITION

A deep conditioning treatment, such as the Morfose Conditioner, which works in only one minute, can benefit hair of all types, textures, and tints. It's really that simple and quick! Substitute this deep conditioner for your regular conditioner, leave it on for one minute, then rinse and style as usual.

WHEN POSSIBLE, DRY IN THE AIR

The AAD recommends letting your hair air dry as much as possible because excessive heat styling can harm your strands in the long run. Scrunch some Morfose into your damp hair if you plan to use this hair styling technique and air dry your hair. It will improve the natural shape and definition of your hair as it dries, giving you a gorgeous, effortless look.

UV RAY PROTECTION FOR YOUR STRANDS

You might not be aware of another source of hair damage. The sun is shining! That's why the American Academy of Dermatology suggests wearing a hat whenever you're outside for an extended amount of time. Hats are also a great accessory, especially on days when your hair isn't up to par.

SPLIT ENDS SHOULD BE TRIMED

Split ends are unavoidable no matter how much you care for your hair and keep it healthy by following numerous hair recommendations. Instead of attempting to seal them, make an appointment with your hairdresser to get them clipped. Because hair is already dead, the AAD suggests clipping it as soon as it breaks.

HYDRATE YOUR HAIR

This rule applies to all hair types: hydrated strands are happy, healthy strands. Use a leave-in hair cream that will feed your strands throughout the day, such as the Morfose Extraordinary Oil-In-Cream, to maintain your hair healthy. Apply a dime-sized amount to moist strands and work it evenly throughout the lengths and ends of your hair. Keeping your strands moisturised is a guaranteed method to keep them looking healthy, strong, and gorgeous, whether you have straight hair, curly hair, or hair that's somewhere in between.

ON WET HAIR, USE A WIDE-TOOTH COMB

Wet hair breaks more easily when combed, according to the American Academy of Dermatology. As a result, when detangling damp or wet hair, it's best to use a wide-tooth comb and be gentle as possible.

SET YOUR HOT TOOLS TO A LOW OR MEDIUM TEMPERATURE

When it comes to heat styling, it's almost never essential to use the highest setting—those super-hot settings are actually meant for in-salon treatments! Keeping your hot tools on a low or medium temperature level will do the job just as well while causing far less damage to your strands.
