Going out into the humid climate or hitting the gym? Most people don’t know that sweat can actually dry out your hair. That’s why we suggest applying a hair mask before these activities to seal in moisture.
Tip #2. Skip the sulfates! (depending on your hair)
We all know there’s been a lot of hype about sulfate-free products lately. But this hype actually has a lot of truth behind it. Sulfates strip your locks of the essential oils that keep it shiny and vibrant. Opt for sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, and you’ll notice a world of difference if you have dyed hair!
Tip #3. Use a clarifying shampoo a few times a month.
Have you ever felt like your shampoo and conditioner seemed to be losing its effectiveness? This is common problem associated with product buildup in the hair. Using a clarifying shampoo a few times a month is a great idea to prevent this. Your hair will feel more rejuvenated and cleaner following this simple treatment. And it’s applied just like your regular shampoo!
Tip #4. Skip the heat.
Ladies, I think we can all admit that we love taking our hot showers... But sadly, heat is the enemy of healthy hair. Hot showers and blow-dryers can make our hair incredibly brittle and prone to breakage. There’s a cold setting on our blow-dryers for a reason! Plus, taking a cooler shower actually seals the hair follicles and prevents frizz. This also means avoiding heat styling whenever possible (if you insist, be sure to use a good heat protectant at all times!)
Tip #5. Prevent hair loss.
Whether we like it or not, all women shed. Which is why castor oil might just be our new best friend. It actually reduces hair loss and promotes growth in hair cells. This is a great addition to your daily routine before you take a shower. Massage the oil into your scalp and all the way through to your ends. Let it sit for about 30 minutes and then wash it off in the shower. And the best part? You can even use it for longer
eyelashes or fuller brows!
