5 Tips for Healthier Hair
It’s a real contradiction that getting the gorgeous hair we want can require tools that wreak havoc on our hair. But what’s a girl to do? It’s not like we’re parting with our flat irons, fresh color or blow dryers any time soon. Don’t toss those hair taming tools yet because you can keep your hair shiny and healthy-looking with 5 simple tips.
Less is more
When it comes to shampooing your hair, even oily hair doesn’t always need washing every day. Over-shampooing your hair can remove the moisture your hair needs, making it prone to damage and frizz.
Treat your hair like fine china
Especially wet hair which is fragile and breaks easier. So, be gentle and avoid brushing your hair when it’s super wet. And trade in your cotton bath towel for soft microfiber or an old t-shirt and blot hair dry.
Keep it loose
Putting your hair into a ponytail with an elastic hair tie is great for getting quick control over unruly hair. Skip the tight elastic bands, which can damage your cuticles, causing breakage. Try the well-loved cloth scrunchie to help keep your hair friction-free and fabulous.
Stay on the cutting edge
The cutting edge of your stylist’s shears! Regular trims are a must! Having your ends trimmed on a regular basis will take care of any split ends and help keep hair looking healthy.
Cool things down
We all know heat is a blessing and a curse when it comes to your hair. We couldn’t imagine facing the day without our super-hot flat irons and blow dryers. Give your hair a cool rinse after shampooing to close those cuticles and prevent frizz. For the same reason, blast your hair with the cool setting on the blow dryer during a blowout.
Give your hair the treatment it deserves and make every day a good hair day!
