1. Feed Your Hair
This can’t be stressed enough: healthy hair starts from within. We’re not saying you have to become vegan, but you should include healthy fruits and veggies in your diet and drink lots of water. If you’re someone who has a hard time with vegetables, blending up a fruit and veggie smoothie is an easy and tasty way to get your daily dose. This will give your hair follicles the nutrients needed to help your strands thrive.
2. Be Careful with Heat
As the saying goes, too much of a good thing can be bad for you. Too much heat too often can lead to damage, and eventually your hair won’t revert back to its natural state. Also, too much or improper use of heat can lead to dry, brittle hair, breakage, and split ends. You don’t have to swear off heat for good, but you should be careful with your technique and how much you use. Here are a few tips:
Use heat tools that have clear settings (not just “on/off”), and use the low or medium settings at most.
Prepare your hair for heat styling at the cleansing and conditioning stage to make sure it is well hydrated.
Always use a heat protectant! This will serve as a barrier between your hair tool and your hair to prevent damage.
3. Cleanse Hair & Scalp Regularly
Yes, healthy hair starts from within, but it also needs a clean, healthy environment from which to grow. A dirty scalp full of buildup can clog pores and follicles and essentially slow down healthy growth. And frankly, dirty hair is just not sanitary!
How often you wash your hair is totally up to you, depending on your daily routine (maybe you work out daily), how much product you use, and so on. The cleansing power of our ADVANCED MOLECULAR SHAMPOO gets rid of any build-up on the hair and scalp, but keeps your hair’s natural oils intact.
4. Use Fingertips When Cleansing
Depending on how your scalp feels come wash day, a good scratch might feel really good. But using your fingernails could cause unnecessary damage to the scalp. The pads of your fingers, along with a little pressure, is all you need for a thorough cleanse.
5. Deep Condition
Our hair needs help in the moisture department because of the shape of our hair. So, as the final step in your wash routine, follow up with a good deep conditioner to infuse moisture into the hair.
