Some things in life are just so exciting to watch happen that you can’t help but get involved right from the start. When your friends tell you about a spontaneous plan to meet for lunch at a random restaurant, you say yes without even thinking twice, of course. The same goes for when your significant other suggests taking a romantic walk or drive, or even an evening out to dinner and a movie. You might not have planned to go for a walk, but once you are there with that person you didn’t even know, you’re both so happy to be together that you don’t want the day to end.

For women, one of the biggest changes around the turn of the millennium was how to style their hair. Instead of stressing about what products to use or how to use them, or even if to wash or not to wash their hair, as I am sure many of us did in the late 90s, early 2000s, women started embracing their natural hair, no matter what kind of hair it was. Thanks to a few standout beauty influencers, such as Ava Gardner and Gigi Gorgeous, showing us the ropes, we now have a whole new era of hair-care regimens to choose from, and they all rely on one key ingredient – water. So whether you have curls, waves, extensions, or even a mix of all of the above, your hair will thank you for keeping it hydrated and looking its best.

When it comes to our hair, we have a tendency to over- or under-hydrate it. While it is important to always put food on our bodies, it is just as important to put moisture on our hair. When it comes to styling, over- or under-watering can cause your hair to weigh it down and become dull. This, in turn, can affect how you style your hair and whether or not the style lasts through the day. When you over- or under-water your hair, you are ruining the hair’s natural oils which, in turn, causes frizziness and makes it easier for the hair to dry and break down. This, in turn, can affect the strands' strength and make them appear more lifeless.

By keeping a hydrated state in our hair, we are keeping it looking healthy and natural, as well as allowing it to grow at its own pace. This, in turn, makes us look and feel our best. So, while we might not always think about it, our health and well-being rely on us keeping our hair hydrated, so it is important that we take care of it and the products which go into it.

the right tools

No matter what type of hair you have – curls, waves, extensions, or even a combination of all of these – you will need the right tools to make it happen. Some of the most important things to have in your kit are a hair dryer and a hair curler. The hair dryer allows you to quickly style your hair, while the curler, on the other hand, allows you to easily lock in all of the styles you create with your hair dryer. If you have very long hair, you will also need a barrette or hair clip to keep it off of your neck while you are driving or walking. Similarly, if your hair is particularly thick, you will want to use an additional hair product, such as curl activator or anti-frizz serum, to keep it looking neat and clean all day long.

the right environment

One of the main reasons why we don’t always keep our hair hydrated is because we don’t always have the right environment. When you are cooking, you must wear gloves to keep your hands clean, and the same goes for when you are vacuuming or cleaning. The same goes for when you are using certain cosmetics or shavers. Always put on your gloves before touching any of these items, as they are all considered as potential sources of infection. If you don’t have gloves, then use hand sanitiser to prevent infections when touching these items. Keep touching surfaces clean by wiping them down with soap and water after each use.


It isn’t just about the tools, you also need the right diet to keep your hair looking phenomenal. It is a well-known fact that many women experience better hair growth when they eat eggs, dairy products, and meat regularly. So if you want to look your best, then make sure that you eat the right food. If you are not getting the results that you want from your hair care regimen, then it could be because you are not eating the right foods for your hair. In that case, you should consult a nutritionist or dietitian to get advice on what products to use and how to use them to make the most out of your hair. Remember, your hair will thank you for taking care of it properly and giving it the nourishment that it needs. So do what makes you feel good and improves your mental health – eat healthy!

hydration is key

Keeping your hair hydrated is the key to making it look its best. Whether you have curls, waves, or extensions, they will all look much better if you keep them healthy and moisturised. You should not be afraid to put a lot of water on your hair, especially if it is short or shorn. When you over- or under-hydrate your hair, not only does it become dull, but it also becomes more susceptible to damage. So, always be sure to keep your hair hydrated by using a lot of hair products and avoiding extremes in weather (very hot or very cold). This is the best way to keep your hair looking its best and prevent damage.

As we have established, keeping your hair hydrated is the key to making it look its best. Now that you’re equipped with the basics, it’s time to get creative! With the right nutrition, tools, and environment, as well as some trial and error, you will be able to achieve any look that you desire. So go ahead and embrace your natural hair – it’s what’s inside that counts.
