How to get a better hair product for your hair
Author and blogger Davines Hair Care has been providing hair care products for the last 25 years.
“My main focus has always been on the quality of our products,” Davines founder Jennifer Davines says.
“We’re really focused on what we know works, and what is effective.”
To find out what else you need, she recommends the following: • Wash your hair with the help of a softener.
• Use an antiseptic shampoo or conditioner that’s free of sulfates and parabens.
• Choose a comb and a styling gel that’s formulated with a high concentration of oils.
• Wash it with a conditioner made with an oil-free, paraben-free formula.
The products can be applied daily or weekly, depending on how much you want to leave on your hair.
• If you’re sensitive to fragrances, like peppermint, make sure you use a deodorant or shampoo with an alcohol-free alcohol-containing formula.
You can also choose a shampoo made with a natural oil-based conditioner, like Alkemi’s shampoo.
“For the most part, the products that we recommend, our products are free of fragrance, paraffin, alcohol, and other potentially harmful ingredients,” Davine says.
You should also check the ingredients on the packaging.
If you choose to use a hair care product with a fragrance, Davines advises using one that contains no parabeners, fragrance, or preservatives.
And be aware of ingredients that could cause irritation to your skin, especially if they contain preservatives, like parabening.
• Apply the product using a cotton swab.
You’ll want to wash the cotton swabs out of your hair by soaking in warm water, like a towel or a soft-serve cloth.
“I do it on my hands and in my hand, and then I leave it on, and it goes through,” Davides says.
She also recommends applying the products to your scalp, using a dry comb or a hair dryer, and leaving it on for a few minutes before rinsing it out with warm water.
If the product is too hard to wash off, you can use a sponge to squeeze it out, but she recommends leaving the product on your skin for at least a few seconds.
Davines is also the author of a book on hair care called Haircare for Everyday People: What You Need to Know to Make Better Hair Products, which you can order online.
Davies Hair Care can also be found online through Amazon, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Target.com, and B&Q.
