Valentine’s Day is coming up and though it is a time for lovers, it is also a time for you. It’s time to show yourself a little love and TLC and that’s why looking after your hair is part of the self-love process. Not only will revamping your hair routine makes you feel relaxed and pampered, but your hair will be twice as luscious and silky – what’s not to like?
Invest in some new brands, have a soothing bath, and try out all sorts of new products to show your hair some love. By now you must already know what your hair is like and which types are better for it. Make sure, if you do the experiments and treat your hair, you do it within a certain range. The moment you see that things aren’t going as well as you thought or you get the unexpected results, change the product!
Everything we do is reflected through hair color, density, and due to a lot of stress, we get grey hairs. We do put our hair through some crazy things, so it’s time to treat it!
Lay Off The Heat Styling Tools
We love trying a tight pin curl or poker-straight hair, but we shouldn’t be using heat styling tools such as straighteners, hairdryers and curling wands. Instead, let your hair dry naturally for less brittle and dry hair. When you do have to use these products, then opt for a natural heat protectant to still have luscious hair even when you’re trying to create intense curls!
Sometimes it is impossible to avoid these aids, but whenever you can avoid them, do it.
Embrace Your Natural Hair
Whilst laying off the heat styling tools, embrace your natural hair. We put our hair through so much when our natural hair looks pretty good without all the behind the scenes touch-ups. Your natural hair is a true expression of who you are, so rock it from time to time – and celebrate being authentically you! Try out a new hairstyle on your natural hair and give it some time off!

In other words, there’s no dying your hair and putting it through any treatment whatsoever. Sure, you need to wash it and you can use some oils which are made of natural ingredients to protect your hair, but nothing more than that. A lot of women change hair color every few months and they spend money on hair paints and other products. Accept your natural hair color, as those paints have a bunch of harmful ingredients. It will save you money as well, considering that you no longer have to buy them.
Look After Yourself
Your diet can have a major effect on your hair’s condition – embracing a healthier diet will not only work wonders on the soul but also on your hair. Incorporate more vitamins and proteins into your diet for stronger hair, and healthier structure. We all love avocado on toast, right? Good news for you – avocado will hydrate and strengthen your hair and give it that luscious feel without stepping a foot into the salon!
Yet this is just another example of how food can improve your hair. Taking care of your body in general and being active on a regular basis is a remedy for almost all of your problems. Yes, it can be hard, but once you get started, you can easily get addicted to it.
Treat Yourself To A Hair Mask
A hair mask should be part of your weekly hair care routine, but if you’ve been neglecting yourself recently, Valentine’s Day is the chance to rekindle that love affair with your hair and treat it to a nourishing hair mask. You can invest in a soothing mask or make your own with your favorite ingredients – we love whipping up a coconut oil mask and taking in the glorious smell.
Trim Your Hair
Trimming your hair gives a new lease of life to your hair and helps growth. You put your hair through every single treatment possible – so it’s time to trim it and banish that color damage and split ends. Not only does it refresh your hair, but it empowers you – nothing quite beats picture-perfect hair! You feel put together and ready to face the world!
And speaking of trimming and split ends, it is important to find a good hairdresser. Someone who will know how to treat your hair and what’s good for it. Every now and then you will have your hairdresser shorten your hair, so you want that to be top-notch as well.
Go For It
If there is a hairstyle or color you have been lusting over for months, then go for it! Being experimental is part of your style identity and you can express yourself through your hair. Going for that style you have been longing for will make you feel like you have achieved something and shows you love yourself and have the confidence to make a change. Don’t be afraid to make a statement this Valentine’s.
Valentine’s Day can be a perfect start for everyone to start treating their hair better than ever. No matter if you are staying at home, going out with your friends, or on a date, having a beautiful and healthy hair will give you a confidence boost and you will look stunning.
