Do you guys use heat and hair product to style your hair at least 5x/week? I think I lose a lot of hair doing that man.. Every morning lose ~20 strands of hair. I didnt go count them of course, just an estimation from looking at the floor.
I guess most people use blowdryer and styling products on their hair everyday. And of course, there will be consequences that follow. But it is not the end as there can be ways to reduce the damage done (preventive) or to fix it (corrective).

You can consider using a good heat protectant to reduce the heat damage done to your hair when you see symptoms caused by heat, such as dry or frizzy or even split ends.

When you feel that your scalp is often itchy or feels "dirty", try out a scalp cleansing shampoo to cleanse it well. And if its you having a hard time to comb through your hair due to excess styling product residues in the hair, try changing to a stronger cleanser to do a better job.

First impression after reading your post, get yourself a new and stronger cleanser. It seems that your hair is not cleansed properly that leads to probable yanking off of the hair. I could be wrong as you will know it better yourself.

i think i'm just greedy lah, i want the hair to absorb as much nutrients as possible. also, i find that when i put the conditioner longer (20 - 30 mins), it can really soften and clean away the spray and stuff there. Previously when i apply and just wash off, the spray and hair products can't go away (shampoo is unable to clean the stuff off, only the olive oil conditioner can)

i remember reading an article some years back which says conditioners need time to be absorbed into the hair.




of course i didn't.

i take a long time to bath (20 - 30 mins), slowly wash.
what happens is, at the start of the bath, i apply conditioner and let it stay on the hair. Then, for the next 30 mins, i just bath normally, then before stepping out of shower, i wash it off.

feels really really good and hair feels very soft afterwards.
like jh say, only if u using old fashioned hair mask then u leave in long. for modern conditioners its best to not let it soak there too long tho... not too great for scalp. u know they always say conditioner avoid scalp? i think if u leave in for so long sure will flow onto ur scalp rest there one

Then IMO, it might have to do with weak hair follicles. Try getting hair tonic or ampoule to strengthen and nourish the weakened hair follicles. Condition should improve from there.

I wouldnt use "old fashioned" but instead, conventional. For hair conditioner, i will wash off probably after 30 seconds or so. Wouldnt be more than a minute. It will probably do more harm than good. Silky smooth hair can be achieved through many other means such as vitamin booster, which is getting increasingly popular nowadays.

But when it comes to deep conditioning, hair mask is still one of my preferred options to go for.

any specific hair dryer brand to use?
IMO, priority is not mainly on the brand. More importantly, its on the weight and power. A lightweight hairdryer will be easier to use and it does make a difference when held in hands. Go for one with at least 2000 watts of power. I myself am using a 2200w hairdryer. You will need this to create the volume and salon-dried hair that you want, without spending tons of time.

The heat settings is kind of standard across the hairdryers in the market. Generally speaking, thick hair needs different drying speed and heat than fine, fragile hair.

Swansons or ocean @ chinatown. I do not think they sell renati there but you can go ahead to check it out. Probably you have better luck checking out online stores. I recalled some do sell them.

hi all have been looking for renati hair wax but not a lot of shops in sg carries the brand.

I read that most here go Chinatown buy their hair wax. where exactly ah?

Thanks in advance

Babyliss is a good start. I paid $40 for this in a sexy purple color when they had a sale 2 years ago.
