We all want amazing hair, whether it is short, long, curly, or straight, we want our hair to be in the best shape possible. Well ladies and gents, this is not just a fantasy it is reachable!! When you look at your hair as simply “Hair”, you can then analyze your problem down to basics giving yourself an easy solution. With summer around the corner weather is beginning to get slightly warmer and vacations are being planned so I wanted to help solve this HUGE problem we all face, and that is dry hair! Below I have given you my top three insider tips for how to give your dry hair a nice big drink of water.
1. To prevent dry hair the key is using as little heat styling as possible, meaning hot rollers are a great substitution for a curling iron, or air-drying is a great fill-in for a blow dryer. Now you can definitely go all out and style your hair to the nines, but for the in-between days of the week its best to use the least amount of heat to upkeep your look
2. A Deep conditioner should be your best friend, I am not talking oil treatments but I am speaking on conditioning treatments that can fill your hair with moisture and protein. Depending on how damaged your hair is you can go from weekly deep conditioning treatments to monthly. Either way everyone should do this with a quality conditioner
3. Styling products are very important because after you rinse out your shampoo and conditioner you still need something to protect your hair from outside elements. I would suggest always using a leave in conditioner along with your smoothing or volumizing products. Just remember that using a leave-in is a MUST!
All in all, when your hair is healthy it works with you and not against you. Healthy hair can naturally shine, grow to its full potential, and have reduced frizz. Instead of continually coating your hair with product to help solve something lets get down to the nitty-gritty and actually repair.
