Top 10 Ways to Keep Your Hair Looking Healthy
We all dream of having gorgeous locking locks that are always in great condition. In reality, though, our crowning glory can also sometimes be our biggest bug bare, as we spend hours either convincing it to lay flat, finding ways to add volume or changing the cut or color when we crave something completely different.
The truth of the matter is, our hair looks, feels and performs best when it is well-looked after and in good condition. Healthy hair is happy hair that will enhance our skin tone and be utterly beautiful, naturally.
As professional stylists and lovers of great looking hair, here are our 10 top tips for keeping your hair looking healthy:
- Use a good shampoo and conditioner
This may sound obvious, but finding the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair is vitally important to keeping your hair looking and feeling great. Find a combination of the two that suits your hair type and that uses natural ingredients to make your hair look and feel great, even in between washes.
- Wash less often
Washing your hair on a daily basis may seem like a good idea, but actually, you could be stripping the hair of its natural oil, leaving it to become dry, brittle and even frizzy. Try to change your routine to only washing it 2-3 times a week to help the hair maintain its own moisture balance.
- Get it cut regularly
While some products may be able to prevent further damage, or lessen the appearance of split ends, the only really effective way to get rid of damaged hair is to cut it off. Regular trims will help to eliminate split ends and keep it looking healthy.
- Keep your scalp healthy
Healthy hair starts at the scalp, so make sure you take good care of it by keeping it moisturized, dandruff free and regularly stimulated with a head massage.
- Use the right tools
Using the right combs, brushes and other tools will help to prevent split ends and damage as well as leaving it looking glossy and gorgeous. You should only ever use a wide-tooth comb to work out tangles when your hair is wet, and never drag a brush through it unless it is completely dry.
- Avoid chemicals
We all know that chemical treatments aren’t good for our hair. If you regularly undergo perming, straightening or other chemical treatments, you must be sure to use specially formulated conditioners to try to help to minimize the damage.
- Be careful with your color
Hair color can be tough on our follicles. Packed full of chemicals that can strip the hair of not just its color, but also its natural oils, you will need to use extra conditioning treatments if you color regularly. Visiting a salon is a better option as they can use techniques that only color some of the hair, limiting the potential damage.
- Eat well
Whatever you put into your body will ultimately affect the way you look and feel – this includes your hair too. A diet that is rich in vitamins and nutrients can help to improve the overall condition of your hair.
- Don’t use too many products
We all like to add a little bit of product now and again, but constantly covering our hair with a ton of artificial extras will leave it looking lackluster and limp. Plus, you will spend more time in the shower trying to wash it all out.
- Don’t over dry it
Beautiful hair doesn’t always need a blowout. When you can, leave your hair to dry naturally to prevent against heat damage and let it’s natural radiance shine through.
