5 Best Tips for Healthy Hair

Posted

 

 

A healthy hairstyle can instantly polish your overall style. No matter if your hair is long, short, red, blonde or blue, healthy hair is achievable with the right at-home routine. You don’t need to make frequent salon visits in order to achieve the hair you want either, as consistent hair care is the secret to healthy locks. Here are 5 of the best tips for healthy hair no matter what season, climate or current state of your hair.





Conditioning Masks as Regular Hair Conditioner

Most regular hair conditioner is meant for frequent use and thus they tend to be lightweight. If your hair is colored, dry, frizzy or textured, try using a hair mask in place of your deep conditioner. Most hair masks are now formulated to rinse clean so you’ll get the benefits of deep hydration without weighing your hair down.



Coconut Oil

This kitchen staple is an all-natural multi-tasker that’s great for hydration from head to toe. Use coconut oil as an intensely hydrating hair mask that rivals salon treatments. Simply take 1-2 tablespoons (depending on hair length and thickness you may need to add more or less), then place in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 20-30 seconds to melt the coconut oil. The warmth of the oil will penetrate deeper into the hair. A lighted mirror with an extra-large mirror head is perfect to use when applying this treatment to make sure you don’t miss any areas.



Heat Protectant

If you must blow dry, flat iron or curl your hair, a heat protectant is a non-negotiable step. Heat protectant is formulated to act as a protective barrier between your hair and the heat. Skipping heat protectant can literally cause fried hair that will lead to breakage and damage. If your hair is fine, use a lightweight spray heat protectant to keep the hair from getting weighed down. If you have dry, course or thick hair, opt for a heat protectant cream or serum which has extra moisturizing ingredients.



Heat Styling with Ionic Tools

Your choice of heat tools play a big roll in how damaged your hair can get. Choose tools that feature ionic technology which seals the cuticle of the hair and promotes a shiny finish. Even though ionic hair tools are a higher price, the investment is well worth the long-term health of your hair to prevent breakage and damage. When styling your hair, use a salon-styled large hand held mirror to get every view of the back of your head to make sure you don’t miss any spots.



Washing Less Often

This is probably one of the hardest tips to implement for most people. Daily hair washing is as natural as brushing your teeth, but it’s one of the most important parts of your at-home hair routine to actually do less of. Washing your hair with water strips it of moisture (even when using a hair conditioner), so washing less often is the easiest way to help prevent dry hair and split ends. Washing your hair every 2-3 days versus daily also saves time in your day, so it’s a win-win.
