Taking care of your hair doesn’t have to be a struggle. Whether you battle with frizzy curls, have damaged colored hair, or fight split ends, there are some great options to help with improving your locks. With a few tips, you can switch up your daily routines and improve your hair health drastically.
Rehydrating Your Hair is a Must
With the daily straightening, curling and weather, your hair can be left a damaged frizz of split ends. To help treat this, it is as simple as a few minutes a day or when needed to tame the beast. Hair oils, leave-in, conditioners, and hair masks are a great and simple way to rehydrate and repair your hair in a pinch. It is critical to look for products that are natural and sourced from products such as argan oil, avocado, olive or coconut oils. Simply apply the product to your damaged hair! Creating a sleek, healthy-looking hair couldn’t be easier.
Use the Right Brush
Once you have your healthy-looking hair, think carefully at the type of brush you are using. Tearing at your hair, causing breakage, and using a brush full of old hair won’t support your renewed locks. You can keep the static and frizz to a minimum for a great style with the perfect brush with anti-static sheets. With each style, you remove the static and dust/debris of everyday use to keep the brush clean. Once you’re done brushing, the easy clean and refillable tear away sheets will keep your brush hygienic and renewed. Brushing your hair should be done twice a day, like the advice from your dentist, lasting at least 2 minutes. You’ll get out the knots, disperse the oils in your hair and make it naturally stronger.
Keep it Trim
Cutting off the dead ends is more important than you think. While it won't make your hair grow faster, cutting off the last inch or two does make it look healthier. The split ends can worsen and make your hair appear dull or lackluster. When not repaired, they worsen and spread, causing your hair to look frizzy and dull. Regular trims every month or every other month can help with less damaged hair.
Don't Wash it Daily
As shocking as it may be, washing your hair daily can cause more harm than good. By washing daily you wash away the natural oils, it can cause colors to fade faster, dry scalp, damage and even cause split ends. There are also the costs of extra products and increased use of heat treatments. For overall healthy hair, you need to space out the washes.
Use the Right Products
Whether it is shampoo, conditioner, detangler, heat treat products, flat iron or blow dryer, each product should be tailored to your needs and hair type. Fine hair vs. thick hair vs. curly hair all need their products. Shampoos should be sulfate and paraben-free and formulated to treat any problems or care for your hair type. Recent studies have found that the sulfates in some shampoos can cause a buildup of dead skin cells and strip away the natural oils from your scalp. Pre-shampoos have become a new trend that can protect and oil your hair before you clean it up. There are a plethora of different product types and brands that can be unique to your daily routine.
Avoid the Heat
I cannot say this loud enough. Heat damages your hair. If you have time and can do the no-heat styles, then you’ll save yourself time and avoid damage. By skipping the morning curling, your hair will suffer less and require less. If you aren’t caught out dead without having your hair straight, then there are heat protectors. These products are applied to the hair before the abuse and can keep it hydrated, mitigating some of the damage caused. So, when possible, do it naturally and skip the heat. When you can’t avoid it, protect your locks from the harsh heat.
A healthy diet full of protein, omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin C, and beta carotene is some of the components of beautiful hair. There are over the counter vitamins for those that suffer from thin or lacking hair that can help as well. Overall though, the best thing you can do for yourself and your hair is to eat healthy and maintain a balanced diet to give your skin everything it needs to grow healthy hair.
Summing it Up
Following a laundry list of to-dos on a daily basis can make your morning routine a mess. But these small adjustments can be made to your morning ritual without sacrificing more sleep. Simple things like switching brushes, using the right products and timing your haircare and trims can make a huge difference in your hair health. Overall, small steps and little daily changes can help to take you from a damaged to the perfect natural and healthy hair.
