Healthy Hair Habits You Should Adopt
Having healthy hair is something that most women strive for. We all want shiny, bouncy locks that look great no matter what style we're wearing. But achieving and maintaining healthy hair can be a challenge, especially if you don't know what hair care habits to adopt.
In this blog post, we'll share some tips on how to keep your hair looking its best. From the right shampoo and conditioner to use, to which hairstyles will help protect your strands - read on to learn more!
Get Frequent Haircuts
Getting a new haircut is a tried-and-true way to launch into your healthy hair routine and keep you motivated. To boot, keeping your strands healthy also requires frequent haircuts throughout the year. Regular trims can minimize split ends and breakage – making your styling time a lot easier. We recommend making an appointment every six to eight weeks. This simple habit will make a world of difference for your locks.
Care For Your Scalp
It's easy to forget this step, but dead skin cells can hang out on your scalp between washes, causing flakiness or breakouts near your hairline. If none of that sounds ideal to you, try exfoliating your scalp using a scalp mask weekly. A guest favorite is the ELEMIS Frangipani Hair and Scalp Mask – which has a natural pink clay to deeply cleanse the scalp and remove buildup while also nourishing the hair with a moisturizing blend of Sesame, Moringa, Macadamia, and Frangipani oils.
Dare To Go Natural
Embrace your au naturale locks as much as possible, whether they're wild curls or long straight strands. Avoiding heated styling tools and refraining from pulling your hair back too often can significantly boost the health of your hair.
Match Your Products To The Season
We are not saying you have to ditch your favorite products every time the season changes, but it is a good idea to switch up your routine according to the weather. For instance, winter calls for more moisture and hydration, meaning you might try a conditioning hair mask at least once a week. Your hair won't need heavy products in the summer, so try lighter styling products.
