Log in to TikTok and a world of everything related to the sector will open up beauty. Tips, beauty hacks, home methods more effective than the best technologies. The hashtag #HairCareTips on TikTok has exploded with over 430 million views. But are these fun and ingenious tutorials really useful? Vera Clinica clinic specializing in aesthetic medicine and trichology, has identified the most popular trends for hair, but also those that work best to restore light and hydration even to the most damaged ends.
How to control split ends (without going to the hairdresser)
It’s one of the most viewed TikTok trends with over 138 million hashtag views and avoid going to the hairdresser (only) to trim split ends. The technique consists of folding a lock of hair over the finger in such a way as to reveal any split ends, making it easier to cut. For those with curly hair, it is recommended to straighten the hair first to get a better result.
Sleeping on the silk pillowcase
Replacing the normal pillowcase with a silk one is good for the hair but also for the skin, because it improves the absorption of cosmetic products. Silk helps eliminate frizz, limits knot formation and leaves the hair texture naturally shinier.
Dry or hair with a microfiber towel
With 4.4 million views on TikTok, microfiber towels not only dry faster, but avoid the scrubbing gesture that can cause breakage. Microfiber is a soft material and is able to absorb water faster, as well as limiting frizz.
The power of rice water
This home remedy for hair growth has become a huge hit on TikTok with 3.5 million views (jumped to prominence with a surge in the number of followers since Kim Kardashian stated on pooche.com to use it to stimulate hair growth and have a shiny hair). Originally from Japan, rice water hydrates hair, stimulates hair growth (as popular wisdom says) and leaves a shiny finish (for real). To prepare the rice water, rinse and drain the rice to remove any impurities and mix with warm water until it becomes cloudy, then let it sit for a few hours before applying it to your hair.
This beauty hack leaves hair shiny and silky. It consists of applying an oil to dry hair and then keeping it in place by rolling the hair inside a stocking, to be stopped as if it were a normal tail. The effect is the same as an intensive mask, with the added bonus of not having to wash your hair. The ideal is to do it in the evening to benefit from the greater receptivity of the hair during the night.
