While international borders remain closed, residents of Malaysia still have a wealth of options when it comes to satisfying their wanderlust. From swanky dinners in the capital to visiting far-flung corners of the country, there are myriad ways you can quell your need to explore.
Of course, no matter where you go, it’s important to ensure your hair is picture-perfect. After all, you don’t want to spend your time on the road tussling with high-maintenance solutions for your locks. This guide offers five quick and easy tips on maintaining healthy, beautiful hair… no matter where you are.
1. Be mindful about your diet
As the old adage goes, “You are what you eat”. Eating a balanced and varied diet is important to maintaining strong, healthy hair. Look for foods that are high in omega-3 fatty acids – such as salmon, mackerel and herring as well as nuts and seeds – which helps promote hair growth. Other types of food that are good for hair growth include eggs, which are rich in protein and biotin, as well as spinach, which is packed with nutrients such as folate and iron.
2. Brush your hair before your shower
When your hair is wet, it’s more vulnerable to breakage and combing it could lead to damaged strands. This is why it’s advisable to use a wide-tooth comb to brush the knots out of your hair before getting it wet. Plus, brushing your hair when it’s dry helps to distribute the natural oils from your scalp to the ends of your hair where it tends to be drier and more brittle.
3. Cleanse regularly
While the frequency of your hair wash depends on a variety of factors such as your hair type and environment you live in, people living in tropical climates are encouraged to wash their hair daily as hot, humid weather tends to create an overproduction of oil in your scalp. Even as you invest in a good shampoo and conditioner for your strands, don’t forget to care for your scalp. When you’re in the shower, gently massage your scalp with your fingertips to remove dead skin cells and improve blood circulation. Once a month, use an exfoliating hair mask or a clarifying shampoo to remove product build-up from your scalp.
4. Protect your hair from heat
Just as we protect our skin from the sun’s UV rays, it’s important to protect our hair from excess heat. The Iconic °5 Hair Mist, designed by Malaysia-based haircare brand Beaute Method Group, is a cruelty-free and eco-friendly formulation that protects hair from harmful UV rays and coats each strand with antioxidants and moisturising, TCM-approved ingredients. This fuss-free product – which comes in travel-friendly sizes – helps protect hair from the effects of sun damage such as discolouration, split ends and brittleness.
5. Treat yourself to the pampering Hair Reactive Serum from uhair method™
Even if you’re time-strapped and don’t have time to visit the salon, you can still give your hair some extra TLC with this professional-quality hair treatment. The Hair Reactive Serum – the latest product by Beaute Method Group, a Malaysia-based haircare brand founded by cousins James Ng and Vivian Ng in 2019 – is designed to treat thinning hair and stimulate hair growth.
