Tips on maintaining short hair
Change your wash routine
Now that you’ve chopped your hair off, it’s important to revise your hair wash routine. Oil reaches shorter strands of hair more quickly so your hair and scalp tend to get greasier faster. It’s highly recommended to wash your hair at least twice a week to maintain healthy and fresh hair.
Use lesser product

Overuse of products can weigh down the quality of your hair and can leave you with a dry and irritated scalp.
Use the Right Product
Using the right products is actually more important than we think it is and often, not that simple. Pick the product suitable for your natural hair type, you’ll be amazed by how much you can step up your hair game just by using the right product. Go for the right shampoo for your hair type,
don’t skip on conditioner, use a curling mousse if your hairs curly, and has a deep conditioning mask ever hurt anyone? It not only makes your hair soft and shiny but also protects them in the long run.
Avoid hot rods
High-temperature heating tools are a BIG NO!! If you want to blow dry your hair, use a diffuser attachment and keep the airflow on low and try to air dry them as much as possible since short hair has a tendency to get frizzy. One major perk of having short hair is that your hair dries out a
lot quicker. Use this liberty, save yourself some time and hassle and try air drying your hair.
