Have you ever been curious about how other people take care of their tresses? We asked 10 girls to share their
Hair type: Low-maintenance
Products: Human Nature Strengthening Plus Natural Shampoo, Human Nature Moisturizing Natural Conditioner, TRESemme Detox & Nourish Mask, Wella Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir
Routine: I shampoo every day, condition my locks every other day, and use a hair mask once a week. I know I'm not supposed to shampoo that often, but my hair gets too oily when I skip a day. After I shower, I air dry—no comb/brush. But one thing I never forget to do is apply hair serum after washing my hair.
Salon: Every six months, I get a P250 haircut when it gets too hot for long hair.
Hair type: Fine
Products: TRESemme Detox & Nourish Shampoo and TRESemme Detox & Nourish Conditioner, Paddle Brush, Blow Dryer, Flat Iron
Routine: I wash my hair daily and usually just let it air dry. When I feel like it, I use a blow-dryer and sometimes a straightener.
Salon: I only go to the salon when I need to get a haircut. I've only tried a hot oil treatment once, and I've never dyed/colored my hair.
Hair type: Long and permed
Products: TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemme Keratin Smooth Conditioner
Routine: I'm a wash-and-rinse kinda girl. I shampoo every other day (sometimes every two days), and usually let my hair air dry (especially after getting a perm). But even when my hair was straight I rarely used heating tools. I tend to wear my hair down, but I never go anywhere without a hair tie!
Salon: Every six months for a trim and treatment.
Hair type: Short and permed (used to be colored)
Products: TRESemme Detox & Nourish Shampoo and TRESemme Detox & Nourish Conditioner, Finesse Extra Control Mousse, Lolane Z Cool Dry Shampoo
Routine: I shampoo daily because my hair easily gets oily, and I condition my tips thrice a week. I don't use any heating tools. I apply a bit of mousse while my hair is damp if I feel like sporting more defined waves; if not, I just let it dry on its own. If my head smells like
Salon: Depends on when I feel like it. I like experimenting with my hair!
Hair type: Blonde, aka bleached and dry
Products: L'Oreal Ever Pure Sulfate-Free Shampoo, Beach Born Purple Conditioner, Aveda Dry Remedy Hair Mask, Davines Oi Oil, Beach Born Dry Shampoo, Tangle Teezer Brush, Ouchless hair ties, Hairband
Routine: My locks are basically dead so I use every freaking hydrating product available to resurrect or at least make my strands appear less straw-like. That said, I rarely heat-style my tresses. Besides, I like natural hair bends—I think they make me look cool, LOL!
I wash and condition my tresses every other day to prevent the color from fading. Then I spritz dry shampoo (I switch up the brands every two weeks) on no-wash days. It absorbs the oil on the scalp and gets rid of
I go for a ponytail when I'm too lazy to brush my locks. I rarely use my Tangle Teezer, tbh—again cool-girl hair bends. The hairband is a new addition. I was influenced by the girls I saw on IG, haha!
Salon: I get my roots and my color retouched every three months
Hair type: Curly, dyed, dry, and unruly
Products: Pantene Natural Care Shampoo, TRESemme Detox & Nourish Mask, TRESemme Platinum Strength Leave-In Treatment, Aveda Brilliant Emollient Finishing Gloss, Wide Tooth Comb (not pictured)
Routine: Since my hair literally has a life of its own and gets dry easily, I tame it down by only washing it every two to three days. I've also switched from a generic conditioner to
Salon: I try to go get a trim and root touch-up every three months. I haven't done any treatments in years.
Hair type: Chemically straightened
Products: Dove Intense Repair Shampoo and Dove Intense Repair Conditioner, Suave 10 In 1 Miracle Hair Mask, Wella Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir, Yves Rocher Sleeping Care, Philips KeraShine Straightener
Routine: My hair is
After washing, I let my hair air dry. But sometimes, if I really have to, I will blow dry it on the "cool" setting. And once it's dry, I use my flat iron to flip the ends of my tresses in—my mane looks more natural this way. I apply leave-in conditioner after to make it extra soft!
Salon: For straightening, every six months. For cuts and treatments, every two to three months, depending on how dry my ends are.
Hair type: Colored and straight
Products: L'Oreal Ever Pure Sulfate-Free Shampoo and L'Oreal Ever Pure Sulfate-Free Conditioner, L'Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Masque and Colour 10 in 1, Toni & Guy Sea Salt Texturizing Spray, Tangle Teezer, Hair Doctor
Routine: I only shampoo every other day and condition about five days a week. There are one to two days when I don't wet my hair at all. I use the hair mask once every three to four weeks (aka when I remember to) but I don’t mind going without it. I usually just comb my hair while it's wet and the Tangle Teezer is what I leave in my purse for the rest of the day. From time to time, I use the 10-in-1 spray when I know I'll be busy and on-the-go, or whenever I'm under the sun. For nights out, I use the texturizing spray to add volume.
Salon: I go every three to five months for a trim and/or color.
Hair type: Wavy and colored
Products: L'Oreal Ever Strong Sulfate-Free Thickening Shampoo and L'Oreal Ever Strong Sulfate-Free Thickening Conditioner, Beach Born Beach Spray, Batiste Dry Shampoo in Clean & Light Bare, Yves Rocher Rinsing Vinegar, Yves Rocher Low Shampoo.
Routine: In place of a clarifying shampoo—which is bad for colored hair—I use a rinsing vinegar to cleanse my scalp once a week. I follow this up with the Low Shampoo, which has no sulfates and silicones. I try to wash my hair every other day, but sometimes, I'm forced to wash it every day if my roots get too oily. On non-hair wash days, I use the Batiste Dry Shampoo in Clean & Light Bare. It's also useful when traveling to cold places. When I feel like bringing out my curls, I use the Beach Born Beach spray—it makes my hair look SO good!
I use hair clamps more than hair ties because I feel like they're gentler on my locks. I went through horrible hair fall phase because of PCOS, so I really worked hard to nurse my tresses back to health. I also use a wide tooth comb to untangle it in the morning.
Salon: I go twice or thrice a year just to keep my waves
Hair type: Pixie and colored
Products: L'Oreal Ever Pure Sulfate-Free Shampoo and L'Oreal Ever Pure Sulfate-Free Conditioner, Kerastase Discipline Keratine Thermique, Philips Foldable Blowdryer, Cylinder brush, Babyliss Mini Flat Iron, Toni & Guy Creative Spray Wax, Bed Head TIGI After Party Smoothing Cream
Routine: I have naturally wavy-curly tresses, so my ultimate goal daily is to tame frizz without compromising my hair's natural texture. After showering, I apply Kerastase Thermique, blow dry with a cylinder brush, iron the bangs and
Salon: Trim every two to three weeks (I am super strict about this); treatment and color every two months.
