Spending too much money on ordinary products that don’t work and not having enough time for ourselves with homeschooling etc in the “new normal” Covid affected lifestyle is a challenge. After the lockdown issues of 2020 and the pandemic situation today, we all realized that we were just becoming more dependent on our salons. Some of us even do not know the exact type of our hair, as we relied on our hairdresser’s advice for home care. Now with most of our salon doors closed, it’s up to us.
Are you searching for hair care tips? Then, you will get multiple options available on the internet, but the ones that pop up first are basically ordinary commercial products, nothing that makes your heart go “pita pat”! Better to search for niche high-performance brands that are endorsed by salon professionals, and also available online through salons or landmark department stores, or reputable sites with a curated beauty list, like net-a-porter not only for hair care but also applicable for skincare, skin whitening cream to foot care creams. Home is the place where we spend 60% of the time, these days much more! So our hair and body care routine and choice of products are up to us to invest in and get right.
Many questions will arise in our minds. Like…
- What is the best shampoo and conditioner for my hair?
- When should I use the hair serum?
- How could we dry the hair after each wash?

1. Hair Washing
Clean hair is healthy hair. Almost every one of us is using shampoo to clean our hair. But do you ever go through the ingredient list on the bottle? More of us say no as the answer. But now is the time to observe that list first, then purchase. Shampoos that are sulfate-free + silicon-free + paraben-free are the best for any hair type. For example, the award-winning Iles Formula Shampoo is all the above and perfectly PH balanced, to not only ensure nurtured strands but also a healthy scalp. This high performing antioxidant-rich formula immediately detangles and protects hair while providing manageability and a lusciously silky texture. Its delicateness cleanses without ever stripping color or drying out your hair. Not only women but men also are lovers of this shampoo and with its perfect PH is the perfect choice for children’s hair too. What’s more family Size is available!
Here are some tips to shampoo your hair:
- Use lukewarm water for hair wash.
- Scalp first. To clean your scalp, you can use a soft shampoo brush.
- Do not rub your scalp, do not be harsh on your hair.
- Before shampoo, in areas of hard water like desert districts, mix the shampoo with water in a small bowl, then apply it. If not be sure to add more water while massaging not more product. Sulfate-free shampoos like Iles Formula activate key ingredients with water. Be sure you have an abundance of lather, that ensures the correct performance.
- Rinse thoroughly, take time to wash off all the shampoo and the dirt from your hair.
- After each wash, conditioning is the “must’ step for everyone.
- Use any soft cotton towel to dry the wet hair or a turban towel that gently removes excess water without friction, turbans especially marvelous for curly hair as it will help form frizz free gorgeous natural movement.

After each hair wash, the conditioning is the almost unavoidable step. The award-winning Iles Formula Conditioner will save you here. This paraben-free formula instantly transforms damaged, straw-like hair into sumptuous spun silk perfection. It repairs and revitalizes even the most damaged hair instantly.
Do not confuse the performance between a conditioner and a hair mask. Often people think they do the same job. A conditioner heals the hair shaft. A mask adds nourishment.
Deep moisturizing via a mask is the prime method to cope up with the dryness of hair needing moisture. For an extra boost of hair rejuvenation, the Iles Formula Hair Mask is formulated with Tucuma butter and pracaxia extracts sourced from the native trees of the Amazon, silk from Japan, nut oils from Australia as well as vitamin E, panthenol, and B5 to strengthen and nourish the scalp and hair.
When applying conditioner always comb through with a large-tooth comb. This will ensure the perfect application. Apply conditioner to the mid-length and ends and it’s the comb that will deliver to the scalp the correct amount of conditioner needed. We never need at the roots what we need elsewhere, as the roots are often the most nurtured area of the hair due to the contact with the scalps natural sebum. The combing also aids the conditioner to close down hair cuticles and locking in any nurture delivered through a mask.
When applying a mask it is not necessary to comb it through as we are not closing down cuticles, we are adding moisture, therefore ALWAYS follow your mask treatment with a conditioner to seal in that added moisture.

This paragraph is for those of you that grew up loving an oil treatment. Then I must say before every hair wash the oiling is a very necessary part. If you see the available market products, you will get multiple options for hair oil. Pick any hair oil, which is free from mineral oil.
Any edible oil is good, especially almond oil, coconut oil, or olive oil. For hair, pure cold-pressed oils are the best choice.
Castor oil is the best work for the growth of the hair. But the pure form of castor oil is very sticky, so make a mixture with any carrier oil. Then apply it on the dry scalp, leave it for 7 to 8 hours, then wash off your hair.
5. Hair Serum For Smoothness
The hair serum is another step, especially for those who are battling dry hair. Dry hair does not mean that your hair is damaged or breakable. A high performant hair serum improves the smoothness of your hair and protects hair from heated tools =UV+ and humidity all without weighing hair down. The Iles Formula Finishing Serum is perfect for thin, fine hair to deliver a lighter silky effect which is excellent if heat activated and blow-dried in. It will transform the hair’s feel and appear thicker.
Whereas the Iles Formula Curl Revive delivers a weightier, cashmere effect to the hair. It is formulated to honor all kinds of textured hair – from curls and chemically straightened curls, waves, and phenomenal on thick coarse straight Indian, Asian hair.
When you are using a serum, always read the direction. Each serum has its differences. Both Iles Formula serums can be used on wet and dry hair.
Shampoo, conditioner, and serums are the essential homecare that one needs to assure a healthy scalp, nurtured hair, and protection for hair from the elements. If you maintain this routine with your heart and soul, you are guaranteed to have gorgeous nurtured locks.
