Minimalist Haircare

The beauty industry has grown in leaps and bounds over the last decade, there are so many products on the shelves. So much so that without some deliberate effort at keeping things simple you might get lost in the sea of products and end up with stuff you don’t really need cluttering up your space.

The minimalist approach to hair care is based on two expressions you must have heard of; Keep It Simple and Less Is More.

Adopting a minimalist approach in your hair care routine is a great way to take going natural one step further. When you use higher-quality products that serve specific and well-defined purposes, you reduce the risk of weighing your hair down with too many products.

With the right selection of processes and products, you can effectively moisturize, nurture, and repair your hair to keep it healthy all year long.

In this article, we’re going to explore simple, effective, and sustainable processes and products you can adopt to keep your hair healthy and beautiful.

Minimalist Hair Care Routine Checklist

Creating a minimalist hair care routine means sticking to the basics and using only what is absolutely necessary to keep your hair healthy.

It is true that no two people are the same, we have varying body systems and therefore have different hair types, but at the basic level, we all need the same processes and products to care for our hair.

We all need an effective shampoo to keep our hair clean, and a conditioner to soften and detangle. Next on the list are styling processes and products like natural oils, styling creams, and accessories.

You can take it a step further based on your hair type and special conditions and concerns that might be peculiar to your hair, and even with this, you can still keep things simple.

Let’s explore each of these processes and the products you’ll need.

Shampoo

Shampoo

The first step in the minimalist approach to taking care of your hair is keeping it clean, and one of the best ways to keep your hair clean is by washing it with a shampoo.

When choosing a shampoo, look out for shampoos with natural ingredients that will cleanse your hair without stripping it of its essential and natural oils. Shampoo bars are a great way to do this.

If you’re already using shampoo bars, you already know how easy it is to use them and how environmentally friendly they are. If you haven’t made the switch, you might have to go through a transition period but you will find out eventually that it is absolutely worth it.

Our Yao Secret Fermented Rice Water Shampoo Bar is an excellent option. It is composed of natural ingredients like rice water and infused with a special blend of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids to help promote hair growth and restore the natural beauty of your hair.

Conditioner

The next step after cleaning is conditioning your hair. The purpose of conditioning is to moisturize your hair and restore some of the moisture lost during the shampooing process. And because they work at moisturizing they are great for smoothing and detangling hair strands.

Conditioning should feature in any hair care routine to keep hair moisturized and easy to style. Our Yao Secret Fermented Rice Water Conditioner Bar is cruelty-free, vegan, and pH balanced. It is exactly what your hair needs to remain moisturized and shiny.

Styling Products

The next process in our minimalist approach to hair care is styling. This is a process that has the tendency of leading you down the path of too many products loaded with bad ingredients.

When styling your hair, make sure to keep it simple and stay away from styling products with ingredients like sulfates that are known to dry out hair.

The best way to avoid a lot of poor ingredients is by using a DIY styling cream you make at home yourself. This way you won’t be exposing your hair to harmful chemicals and you can also save some cost.

Styling Products

Styling Cream: An Easy Recipe

Mix together shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe vera gel. All you’ll need is two tablespoons with equal parts of each product, the best part is how effortlessly you’ll be able to find these items, pop into your local supermarket and they’ll be sure to be there.

Styling Tools

Last, but not least, items on this minimalist hair care routine are the styling tools you’ll use on your hair. The most common tools you’ll need to take care of your hair are brushes and combs.

You probably already know by now that using heat tools on your hair can cause damage, so it is best to stick to the simple tools that will help keep your hair in its natural state.

Our Yao Secret Paddle Hairbrush is made with wood to make sure there is no static in your hair when you’re styling. It is perfect for detangling your hair without causing any hair loss or breakage. It is also safe for all hair types.

We also have a Wide Tooth Detangling Comb that perfectly detangles in fewer strokes than a regular comb so your hair remains defined and frizz-free. It features a wooden design for ease of use and wide teeth that effortlessly glide through your hair to untangle any knots without causing damage or uncomfortable snags.
