Stop! Don’t Do that to Your Hair!
Thursday, October 27, 2016
We all have good intentions when it comes to taking care of and styling our hair but sometimes we make mistakes unintentionally, or think that we aren’t doing as much damage as we actually are. Well, we’re here to tell you what’s what when it comes to treating your lovely locks with kindness and respect!
Don’t Wash Daily, Instead Use a Reviving Dry Shampoo Between Washes
Try washing your hair every other day instead of every day. If you need to keep natural oils at a minimum between washes, try using a fragrant dry shampoo on your non-wash days. Not only will your natural oils act as conditioner for your hair on your non-wash days, you’ll love how easy it is to style unwashed hair. Pick a spray dry shampoo if you don’t want to run the risk of seeing telltale powder after applying.
Don’t Wash Before Bed—Unless You Use A Moisturizing Styling Creme First
If you shower at night you’re bound to wake up with flat, frizzy hair in the morning unless you take precautions first. Let your hair dry for at least 20 minutes before hitting the hay and choose a moisturizing style cream that won’t leave your hair feeling greasy in the morning but can do the job of taming frizz.
Stop Brushing your Wet Hair with a Regular Brush
Keep your ends lovely and healthy by putting leaving your favorite brush in the drawer after washing your hair. Instead, use a specially designed wet brush or comb. You can use it to detangle or work in your leave-in conditioner without worrying about snagging and breaking your ends.
Stop Skimping and Deep Treat Your Hair with An Intense Conditioning Hair Mask
Think of a hair mask as a mini-spa for your locks. We recommend weekly treatment and love the masks that smell like dessert. A good hair mask should leave you with shiny, more manageable hair without a single knot or tangle to be found.
Stop Postponing Your Salon Appointments While Growing Out Your Hair
Even if you’re inspired by Rapunzel to grow your hair to impressive lengths, you should still get your ends trimmed every 6 – 8 weeks. If you want those lovely locks to grow a little faster try using a biotin supplement, which supports healthy hair growth.
Don’t Leave The House With Wet Hair In The Winter
We know, mornings are crunch time in every season, but you’re doing more damage to your hair in winter by leaving the house with it still wet than you are in any other season. The cold weather can actually freeze your wet ends, resulting in breaks and splits—yuck. Instead take a minute to dry your hair with a diffuser. And if you need to multitask in order to get to work on time, sip that healthy, green smoothie while you do it.
