Follow these important rules for having great hair (and check out our printable recap below!):
GET THE RIGHT CUT
The right haircut from a professional stylist can make any hair type or texture look fantastic and will save you money. Why? Because it will look good as it grows, so you can cut it less often.
CLEAN AND CONDITION
Regular (but not daily) shampooing and conditioning is the foundation for healthy hair, and weekly deep conditioning treatments will help maintain its strength.
USE PRODUCTS WISELY
When used correctly, great products can enhance your look and protect your hair. When used incorrectly, disasters abound (flakiness, increased oil, dryness or frizz). Read product labels carefully and don’t over-apply!
WORK WITH WHAT YOU’VE GOT
Heat and chemicals increase hair damage. Whenever possible, go au naturale and your hair will thank you.
KEEP IT FRESH
Without regular trims, damage at the tips of your hair will spread up the hair shaft. Average hair grows about ½-inch every 4-6 weeks, so you should trim your hair that much, that often. If you’re trying to grow your hair out, consult your stylist for the best trimming schedule for you.
You really are what you eat, sweetie. A balanced diet with plenty of vitamins and minerals from fresh fruits and vegetables is important for healthy hair.
Protein from red meat, fish and poultry promotes hair growth. Omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, walnuts and flax seed fight dryness and give your hair natural shine.
Include these foods in your diet weekly, and you’ll notice a positive difference over time as new, nourished hair grows in.
