Talking about hair this week has been a quite an eye-opener for me.
I have had conversations about EDTA and build up. Realised that on the other side of the hair fence are the people with thin hair and they have their own issues.
Honestly, what I enjoyed most was hearing from each and every mum how they took small steps to care for their hair and ultimately themselves. It was so great to see them doing that.
I asked these mums what were their best haircare tips and here is what they shared with me :
1. Rachel Teo of the Catch 40 Winks blog (http://www.catch40winks.com) says,"I alternate between two types of shampoo every 2 weeks and I only use conditioner twice a week at the roots. This helps to prevent buildup as my hair tends to be flat and thin."
2. PC Lee of the Simply Us blog (http://scrapmumloft.blogspot.sg) says, "I trim my own hair with a scissors and comb once every 2 weeks to maintain a neat fringe. It wasn't easy to begin with but practice makes perfect!"
3. Regina of MummyMoo (http://www.mummymoo.com) says, "I use home-kits to dye my hair because I find that they are less drying than salon alternatives. and 'uneven' colouring from unskilled application actually makes the hair appear to grow out of the colour more naturally than the salon straight colour line as the hair grows out."
4. Sandra at http://www.sanses.com says, "A good haircut is key! I am a wash-and-go person, with hardly any time to blowdry my hair in the morning. I have been with my hairstylist for more than 7 years - and she is awesome at giving me a cut that is easy to maintain. I also usually try to use a hair mask at least once a week - to pamper myself!"
5. Angeline Sim of Princess Dana Diaries (http://www.ourprincessdana.com) says,"Stick with your trusted hairstylist and do not be swayed by offers or promotions. When it comes to our hair, it helps to leave it in the good hands of a hairstylist whom we trust and who knows our personality and style. Don't take chances (mess) with our hair!"
Thanks everyone for leaving comments and sharing your hair stories too. I have really enjoyed our conversations and hearing from you.
From the tips today, I was struck by how Sandra shared how she pampers herself by using a hair mask. I have never tried one but am definitely keen to try one.
Which was your favourite tip?
