We all want silky, shiny locks. But we also want to keep up with the latest trends in color and styles. Sometimes the two don’t go hand in hand. But keeping your hair healthy is the best way to ensure that your hair will look and feel fabulous no matter what color or style you are trying to achieve.
Here are four easy ways to ensure that your hair is as healthy as it can be.
1. Snip, snip, snip
That’s right. The best way to make sure that your hair is growing properly is to make sure that you are getting regular haircuts, or trims, every 6-8 weeks. Even those of you who are trying to compete with Rumpelstilskin need to get very minor trims to keep those split ends away and to help your hair grow.
2. Give it a Rest
Sometimes you need to go au natural and take a break from heat styling objects like blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons. Simply wash and condition your hair and let it go. This will help your hair recover from any previous damage it may have received.
3. Moisture, moisture, moisture
Use a deep conditioner that will help keep your hair hydrated even during the driest winter months. Not all conditioners are created equally though, so make sure to use a good conditioning mask, such as Kerastaste Masquintense, that nourishes dry hair. Some conditioners just coat the hair with a waxy substance and will not penetrate into the layers of the hair shaft.
Make sure to drink a ton of water to keep yourself, and your locks, hydrated.
