Here i'm using a plastic cap which is
wayy to big lol.
If you suffer/ have suffered from dry, split ends then this is the post for you. I've come across a new hair care technique which is quick, effortless and can be used on all hair types.
This technique, traditionally known as the baggy method, really helps lock in moisture and protect your ends from breakage and further damage.
To do this you will simply need:
- A plastic cap, or even a sandwich bag will do
- A small hairband or bobbypins (optional)
When you feel that your ends are particularly dry, apply an oil of your choice to the ends of your hair. Alternatively you can also use a moisturiser or leave-in conditioner if you prefer. When done you can either braid, twist, wrap or bun your hair. Next, put a sandwich bag, or any small plastic bag of your choice, over your ends and secure it with a hair band. You can keep this in anywhere from an hour up to overnight. The natural heat inside the bag will keep your ends well moisturised.
Similarly, if your hair is dry full stop (not just your ends) try applying the oil/ moisturiser/ leave-in from root to tip and cover with a plastic cap either for an hour or overnight. When it comes to removing the plastic cap you should see a difference in the feel of you hair. Also, if kept up as part of a routine, your hair should feel softer, helathier and stronger in no time!
If that still doesn't work, try to apply some external heat directly over your cap either by sitting under a hooded dryer or by using a hairdryer (if you're cheap like me, and can't afford a hooded dryer lol).
Do not keep plastic cap on for longer than needed as your hair needs to dry itself out and damp, over moisturised hair can cause problems.
Have a go, and let me know how it goes :)
