How to Maintain a Daily Hair Care Routine

Table of contents

A daily hair care routine can be challenging with the hustle-bustle of life. It appears daunting because of the overflowing information on the internet, in magazines, and where not! Don’t lose hope, we are here to help you. Once you’ve attuned yourself to a comforting routine, there is no looking back.

But, is a proper hair care routine at home enough to manage hair concerns? According to Crystal Aguh, M.D., assistant professor of dermatology at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine - “One of the few forms of hair loss can be resolved with nonmedical options.”

A hair care routine isn’t just about using a good shampoo or conditioner; it is an amalgamation of diet, lifestyle, and toxin-free regime that brings back your lackluster strands to life. Bringing together years of research and the recommendations of dermatologists, we’ve curated a balanced approach to healthy and gorgeous hair.

Common Hair Problems

There are different types of hair concerns, but hair loss and breakage top the list. As per the hair concerns report by MediHair - “The most common symptom of hair loss and related problems is hair thinning.” It all starts with breakage, split ends, and flyaways, leading to damaged strands and scalp. Every string is connected to the other, but you can detangle them all with the right care. Hence, your daily hair care routine must address a myriad of hair concerns, most commonly the ones mentioned below:

  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Dryness and frizz
  • Oily scalp/hair
  • Breakage and split ends
  • Dandruff or flaky scalp
  • Color or heat-damaged hair, and so on.

Daily Hair Care Routine - 5 Simple Steps

Step up your hair care game with a sustainable routine that’s perfect for all hair types and textures. Here’s the low down of simple steps that don’t require you to put in a ton of effort.


Oil Massage

The science of oiling comes from Ayurveda. Oil massages reduce tightness and stress in the scalp muscles, strengthening the roots and replenishing damaged mane. Gently awaken your nerves by opting for a head massage with natural hair oils. Lubricating the cuticles, oil reduces frizz and nourishes the hair from the inside out. In fact, a 2019 study found that daily scalp massages reported a boost in hair regrowth in people with alopecia (hair loss).

Depending on your hair type, invest in oil massages 2-3 times a week unless you have dandruff or a flaky scalp. Add it to your healthy hair care routine to stimulate blood circulation in the scalp and for stronger hair:
  1. Select a hair oil that is suitable for your hair type and needs. Common options include coconut, safflower, sunflower, jojoba, and castor oil.
  2. Divide your hair into a few sections. Use hair clips to keep the segments separate.
  3. Apply an adequate amount of oil to your scalp. Gently massage using your fingers in circular motions. Gradually, work through the ends of your hair, focusing on the lengths.
  4. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes or an hour. For deep conditioning, consider leaving the oil overnight.

Irrespective of your hair type and texture, this step is extremely important. Choosing the right scalp and hair cleansing products makes a huge difference to your daily hair care routine. It helps eliminate excessive buildup, sebum, dirt, dust, and grime. Cleanse your hair with a gentle and sulfate-free shampoo at least twice a week or more, depending on your hair needs. Be it dry or oily scalp, use a clarifying shampoo once or twice a month for deep scalp exfoliation and squeaky clean hair. Plus, it makes your hair ready for chemical treatments.

  1. Soak your hair with lukewarm water and take a dime-sized dollop of cleansing shampoo, depending on your hair density and length.
  2. Gently massage your scalp (don’t scrunch). Lather into the nape of the neck while shampooing the lengths.
  3. Rinse out thoroughly with cold or lukewarm water and ensure that all residue is gone.

Choose an ultra-hydrating conditioner to make your lackluster strands soft, silky, and smooth. Moisturizing your hair with a conditioner prevents breakage and eases combing. It strengthens your mane by locking in moisture and sealing the cuticles. After cleansing your hair with a shampoo, it becomes important to hydrate the strands with a nourishing creme, gel, or spray. A deep nourishing conditioner remains an essential part of your daily hair care routine.

  1. After washing your hair, apply an adequate amount of conditioner to the lengths.
  2. Unless it’s a leave-in product, rinse off with cold or lukewarm water. Style as you like.

Pro Tip - Try Moehair Protein Infused Conditioner for silky-smooth tresses, Color Alive Conditioner for color-treated hair, or Hair Guard Conditioner for bouncy and voluminous hair. And if you’d like to cut off the rinsing step, go for Moehair Leave-in Conditioner.

Occasionally, you can consider using a hair mask for deep conditioning. Moisturizing and improving the strength of your hair, it provides end-to-end hydration and reverses the damage caused by external aggressors. Pollution and extreme temperatures alter the cuticle’s condition. Thus, using a hair mask almost every two or three weeks softens hair fiber and seals in moisture, making the cuticle less susceptible to damage. It’s a worthwhile add-on to your daily hair care routine, adding shine to lifeless hair.

  1. After washing your hair, apply an adequate amount of hair mask to your damp hair. When using a hair mask, you may skip applying the conditioner.
  2. Let the hair mask sit for 5-10 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with cold or lukewarm water.
Pro Tip - Choose a paraben and sulfate-free formulation for best results. Try Moehair Hair Mask for frizz-free shine. It is gentle on your hair and infused with safe ingredients.


Last but not least, protect your hair from heat styling, pollutants, dust, dirt, and grime. External aggressors can immensely damage your hair and pave the way for flyaways and frizz. Therefore, it’s crucial to damage-proof your mane using a heat protectant. It adds a protective layer to your hair, making it less vulnerable to degradation. The low-down of your daily hair care routine seems complete with Z+ protection, thanks to innovative heat protectant sprays.

  1. Before using a heat-styling product, divide your hair into sections.
  2. Apply/Spray an adequate amount of heat protectant to each section. Let the hair air dry, then comb through the lengths. Style as you like.
Pro Tip - Get your hands on Moehair Heat Protectant Spray and protect your hair’s natural protein with just a few spritzes.

Secrets to Healthy Hair

If you wish to chart out your healthy hair care routine, don’t forget to unlock these secrets for the best results. Compliment your hair care regimen with the following good practices.

  • Understand your hair type - Before looking for a daily hair care routine, understand what your hair needs. While all steps are important to follow, you may need to cut down on some and emphasize the others, depending on your hair type and texture.
  • Go for regular trims - Nobody likes split ends and damaged hair through the lengths and ends. Getting regular trims, almost every 3 months, can make styling easier. It decreases hair breakage and doesn’t let the split ends travel up and damage the shaft.
  • Wash oily hair/scalp frequently - The oil secreted by the sebaceous glands builds up on the scalp and clings on pollutants to hair. Overactive sebaceous glands might be genetically linked, leading to oily scalp, dandruff, or other infections. Thus, frequently washing hair helps get rid of excess oil, sebum, residue, and buildup.
  • Watch your diet - A nutrient-rich diet helps maintain overall hair health. One needs protein for healthy hair growth, biotin for keratin synthesis, omega-3 fatty acids for lustrous shine, vitamins for nourishment, and so on. There is no end to this race. All you can do is prepare a balanced diet that adds value to your overall health.
  • Less is more - Chasing behind so many hair care products, brands, and home remedies can end up screwing your hair health and take a toll mentally. Create a daily hair care routine that doesn’t weigh you down on your expectations.
