10 Tips to Get Silky, Smooth Hair

Updated on June 2, 2014

All of us wish to have soft and manageable hair that listens to what we say. But, being unique human beings we all have different textures for our hairs. Many of us struggle to control the frizzes that we have in our hairs and we tend to experiment with more and more cosmetics which cause more damages than doing good.

It is not all that tough to get a soft and smooth hair. It is just a matter of proper care and following a simple routine of cleaning and moisturizing. Here, I enlist ten tips that can help in giving a smooth texture to your hair naturally.


1. Clean Your Hair With a Moisturizing Shampoo

Clean your hair with the right shampoo.

It is important to clean your hair properly but it is even more important to choose the right shampoo for your hair. If you have dry hair, use a protein shampoo that has moisturizing properties. I prefer to use organic products as they do not contain harmful chemicals like sodium lauryl sufates and parabens. While washing your hair do not use hot water. Hot water leaves your hair dry. Try not to use too much of shampoo and do not keep the shampoo in your hair for a long time. Massage your hair with the shampoo to form lather and rinse it off immediately.

2. Condition Your Hair

After shampooing apply an ultra hydrating conditioner on your hair and keep it at least for 5 minutes. Wash it off with cold water. Wrap a towel on your head to soak the water. Do not rub your hair. It is better to use an old T-shirt instead of towel as the micro-fibers in a towel make the hair frizz. Use a wide toothed comb to detangle your hair. You may use a hair serum to smoothen your hair further.


3. Do Not Blow Dry

Avoid blow drying your hair and if it is absolutely necessary, hydrate your hair properly by oiling the next day and applying some hair masks.

4. Go For Spa Treatments Once In a Month

Hair spa treatments in salons involve washing the hair and then applying a hair mask along with a rejuvenating serum. It also includes steaming the hair for deep conditioning followed by a relaxing massage. This treatment increases blood circulation in the scalp thereby enhancing hair growth and the mask and steam hydrates the hair from the roots. The massage relieves stress.

5. Trim Your Hair Every 6 Weeks

Trimming your hair is essential. The ends of the hair become frizzy as they grow and the growth rate also decreases after a few weeks of a hair cut. Trimming regularly revamps the growth rate and prevents frizzing at the ends.


6. Oil Your Hair

Oil your hair thrice a week. Olive oil is very good for dry and damaged hair. It gives a smooth and shiny texture to the hair. After oiling keep it at least for an hour and then rinse off. It is even better to heat the oil a bit and massage your scalp with the warm oil. This works wonders for frizzy hair. You can also mix a little olive oil with your conditioner that helps your conditioner to treat your hair even better.

7. Use Curd Once a Week

Curd is a wonderful moisturizer and it also cures dandruff. Apply curd on your hair and scalp, once in a week to get a manageable, soft and dandruff free hair. Keep it on for half an our and wash it off with a mild shampoo. You can mix honey along with curd for extra moisturizing.

8. Apply Natural Masks

You can apply a few home made hair masks to get shiny hair. Apply these masks once in two weeks.

Banana Mask: Mix one ripe banana and yogurt and make it into a smooth paste. Apply it from the roots to the tips. Keep this mixture on for 45 minutes and then wash it off with a shampoo. It will help you keep your hair smooth and silky.

Lemon and Egg Mask: Take egg yolk in a bowl. Mix about 6-8 drops of lemon juice into the egg yolk. Beat it well and apply to hair. Keep it on for 15 to 20 minutes and then rinse of with a shampoo.

9. Rinse Your Hair Regularly But Do Not Use Shampoo Every time

Rinse your hair whenever you feel like. Rinse it after workout or rinse after you come back from work. But do not shampoo it every time. Limit the usage of shampoo twice a week. Excessive use of shampoos tends to make the hair dry. When you rinse your hair apply conditioner in it and wash it off after 2-3 minutes. This will retain the moisture along with cleaning your hair.

Use apple cider vinegar as the last rinse and this will give a shine to your hair.

10. Drink Lots of Water

Keep yourself hydrated. Drink 3 liters of water a day. If your body is hydrated your scalp will be hydrated too and your hair will appear nourished. Along with drinking water, proper sleep is also necessary for a healthy scalp and hair.
