If you’re looking to improve your hair care game, this post is for you! I hope you’re able to take some great tips away to put to use.
7 TIPS FOR HEALTHY HAIR:
1. Detangle Your Hair Before Washing // Before you hop in the shower, be sure to detangle your hair. Brushing your hair before showering helps to smooth out your hair for a more thorough wash. If your hair is all tangled and snarly when you get in the shower to wash it, you’re not going to get a thorough wash and you could damage your hair. Brushing your hair before washing it can help prevent any snarls you might get while in the shower.
2. Give Your Hair Some Hair Food // I am always trying out new products and shampoos but recently I have been using (and loving) Hair Food Sulfate Free Color Protect collection. As someone who’s always looking for products to keep my hair healthy and my color intact, this is by far my new favorite.
Hair Food Color Protect collection is free of sulfates, parabens, gluten, mineral oil and dyes! It’s the perfect mild recipe inspired by fresh, energy packed ingredients known for their vitalizing power and shine. The shampoo has the perfect lather to cleanse your hair, leaving your hair with the perfect amount of shine. The conditioner is the greatest lightweight conditioner I have ever used – truly! My hair soaks it all up and once it’s all rinsed out, it leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny!
The Hair Food Color Protect collection is a great system that’s thorough, yet gentle on your hair. It’s a must-try in my book if you have color treated hair. Oh, I can’t forget to tell you about how amazing this collection smells! The shampoo and conditioner are infused with a fragrant blend of energizing white nectarine and pear. And oh my word… it smells absolutely heavenly!
Hair Food also has other lines according to fit your hair needs including volume, thickening, refreshing, moisture, hydration, and cleansing. There is truly a Hair Food recipe for everyone. Hair Food recipes are crafted by hair experts and nutritionists and they’re all about pure ingredients for your hair.
Hair care products can sometimes break the bank but that’s not how it is with Hair Food. All Hair Food products are extremely affordable, leaving you with no excuse to not treat your hair to some Hair Food care.
3. Handle Wet Hair With Care // Your hair is most vulnerable when it’s wet so you really need to handle with care. Put off brushing your hair when your hair is freshly wet from after washing and conditioning. I typically wait a good 45 minutes before I start to comb through my hair. Opt for a wide-tooth comb instead of a brush when your hair is wet or damp. This leads to less breakage and damage.
4. Wash Every Other Day // Washing your hair every day can lead to damage. For me, it’s hard to not wash often as I have extremely oily hair. I have been washing my hair every other day to help maintain my hair’s strength. It’s a popular thing right now to go 5-6 days in between washes, but that’s not actually the healthiest thing your hair. My mother-in-law is a hair stylist and says waiting too long in between washes can simply attract more dirt and debris. If your hair isn’t cleaned regularly, your hair may hold more sebum, which can attract more dirt and debris. Dry shampoo can only do so much. Aside from all of that, going that far in between washes can also cause…
- Lose of shine
- Lose of volume
5. Rinse Your Hair With Cold Water // Just like rinsing your face with cold water closes your pores, rinsing your hair with cold water helps to seal your hair cuticles. Cold water removes all excess product without removing the moisture that your conditioner put in place.
6. Use Less Heat // I know that my hair is curled in the majority of my photos but on a typical day when I’m just working from home, my hair is left natural. Using less heat on your hair helps to keep it from becoming damaged. When you do need to blow dry your hair or use any other kind of heat styling tool, make sure you protect your hair properly with a heat protectant product that’s suitable for your hair.
7. Don’t Sleep With Your Hair Up // If you sleep with your hair in a ponytail or tied up in any kind of way, you’re putting your hair at risk of becoming damaged. Sleeping with your hair up causes breakage to your hair. The tension from a hair tie can pull at your hair and cause breakage, so it’s best to sleep with your hair down. Two other tips to help keep your hair healthy while you sleep: brush it before sleep to avoid any tangles and use a silk pillowcase.
