Apr 3, 2019


Welcome to Be Hair Now's Teen Steam page! As a teenager, taking care of your hair is essential for self-confidence and overall well-being. This comprehensive guide will provide you with all the knowledge and tips you need to maintain healthy, beautiful locks. From choosing the right products to tackling common hair issues, we've got you covered!

Choosing the Right Hair Products

Proper hair care starts with using the right products. With so many options available, it's important to choose those that suit your hair type and specific needs. Here are some key considerations:


When selecting a shampoo, consider your hair type - whether it's oily, dry, or normal. Look for shampoos that are sulfate-free and contain nourishing ingredients such as argan oil or shea butter. These will help cleanse your hair without stripping away its natural oils.


Conditioners are vital for maintaining soft and manageable hair. Opt for a conditioner that matches your hair type and targets any concerns you may have, such as frizz or damage. Deep conditioning treatments once a week can also provide an extra boost of hydration.

Styling Products

Whether you prefer natural curls or sleek straight hair, the right styling products can help you achieve your desired look. From mousses and gels to heat protectants and serums, explore options that enhance your hair texture without causing damage. Don't forget to choose products suitable for your age, as some may contain harsh chemicals.

Combatting Common Hair Issues

As a teenager, you may encounter various hair issues such as oily scalp, dandruff, or hair loss. Here are some effective solutions:

Oily Scalp

If you struggle with an oily scalp, try washing your hair every other day with a gentle shampoo. Avoid over-styling with heavy products and opt for lightweight, oil-absorbing alternatives. A dry shampoo can be a game-changer, helping to refresh your hair between washes.


Dandruff can be bothersome, but there are ways to manage it. Look for shampoos specifically designed to target dandruff, containing ingredients like tea tree oil or salicylic acid. Regularly exfoliating your scalp with a soft brush can also help remove dead skin cells and promote a healthier scalp.

Hair Loss

If you're experiencing hair loss, it's important to first understand the underlying cause. Factors like stress, hormonal changes, or nutrition deficiencies can contribute to hair loss. Consult with a healthcare professional or trichologist for proper diagnosis and guidance on potential treatments or lifestyle adjustments.

Creating a Healthy Haircare Routine

Establishing a consistent haircare routine is key to maintaining healthy hair. Here are some steps to consider:

Washing and Conditioning

Wash your hair with lukewarm water, as hot water can strip away natural oils. Massage the shampoo into your scalp for a deep cleanse, then follow up with conditioner focusing on the ends. Rinse thoroughly to avoid product buildup.

Drying and Styling

Avoid rubbing your hair vigorously with a towel to dry it, as this can cause breakage. Instead, gently squeeze out excess water and let your hair air dry whenever possible. If using heat-styling tools, apply a heat protectant to minimize damage.

Brushing and Detangling

Use a wide-toothed comb or a brush with soft bristles to gently detangle your hair, starting from the ends and working your way up. This prevents unnecessary breakage and minimizes pain.

Protective Hairstyles

Consider incorporating protective hairstyles into your routine, especially if you have textured or prone-to-breakage hair. Braids, buns, or ponytails can help reduce everyday wear and tear on your hair.


By following these tips and incorporating them into your haircare routine, you'll set yourself up for healthy and beautiful hair not only as a teenager but for years to come. Be Hair Now is here to support you on your hair journey and provide you with the necessary knowledge to make informed choices. Remember, your hair is unique and deserves the utmost care!
