Secrets To Great Hair

Many of us want hair that we can feel good about. There’s just something about our hair looking fabulous that adds a little extra bounce in our step and can almost make us feel like we can take on the world. The problem is that our hair goes through a lot on a daily basis: hot and cold temps, styling, washing, brushing, etc. Although the hair is strong, it’s still vulnerable and can also be temperamental, so it’s not always easy to get it to look its best. There are some things, however, that you can do to help increase your chances of having hair that you love.

Keep Up With Haircuts
There are general rules to consider, but since everyone’s hair is different, it’s up to your hairdresser to decide how often you should get it cut according to what’s best for your specific hair. Life can get busy, so the best way to remember that you need to go is to make your next appointment when you’re leaving your current one.

Give Your Hair a Styling Rest
Frequent styling means that you’re often pulling and tugging at your hair which could cause damage. If you’re constantly putting your hair in a ponytail, doing different hairstyles, blow-drying it, straightening it, curling it, and you’re doing it on a daily basis, it may be time to give your hair a styling rest. Additionally, when you do have to use any hot styling tools on your hair – straightener, curling iron, etc – make sure to apply a heat protectant product.

Invest in Satin or Silk Pillowcases
Sleeping on satin pillowcases can have quite a few benefits, one of which is that it creates less friction between the pillowcase itself and your hair which can result in less frizz and breakage. As an added bonus, it can also be great for preventing sleep wrinkles on your face.

Watch Your Diet
Certain foods are fantastic for your body, but they can also be wonderful for hair health. For example, foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids, such as walnuts and salmon, could be advantageous to add to your diet.

Protect From Sun Damage
Just like you have to protect your skin from sun damage, you have to protect your hair from it as well. You may be familiar with how the sun could fade the color if your hair is color-treated, but it could also contribute to it being frizzy, dry, or brittle. Make sure to use a sun protection spray, especially in the summer when you’re likely outdoors as often as possible. Additionally, wear a hat when you can, and don’t forget to use sunscreen on your part to protect your scalp from sunburn.

Don’t Shampoo Your Hair Daily
Shampooing your hair on a daily basis could dry it out which is why it’s typically considered best to give your hair some time in between. How often you should shampoo depends on your hair, so talk it over with your hairdresser for more insight.

Skip the Hot Water
Hot water isn’t just bad for your skin, it’s not particularly great for your hair either. While you’re washing your hair, your best option is to use lukewarm water for washing and finish it off with cold water.

Now that you know just some of the secrets for having great hair, it’s time to talk to your hairdresser to get personalized advice for how you can make your hair better than ever.
