Hello to our little squeaky-clean hair addicts! There is no better feeling than starting your day off with clean, fresh hair. Am I right?
However, all that scrubbing can really take its toll so if you are lathering up daily there are a few things you need to make sure you do and have in your hair care regimen to ensure you are helping your hair live its best, healthy life!
Use a protein mask on your hair at least once a week
The scrubbing, the sulfates, the brushing, the blow drying- it all causes damage to your strands. Adding a protein mask to your routine will help strengthen those ends and prevent any breakage.
Opt for a sulfate-free shampoo
What makes sulfates desirable is their ability to get your hair very clean. However, if you’re washing your hair daily then it really isn’t getting that dirty! A good sulfate-free shampoo will gently cleanse your hair without causing too much destruction to your cuticle leaving your hair soft and clean. Yes please!
Always use a leave-in, especially before styling
This. Is. A. Must. Leave-ins are filled with heat, UV, and environmental protection that will keep your hair protected and healthy until your next wash. Always apply a leave-in or detangler, use a wide tooth brush or comb and start from the ends of your strands and work your way up towards the scalp through the tangles!
Brush your hair before your shower
Wet hair is prone to damage. Brushing through tangles when wet can sometimes be just as damaging as a color service. YIKES! Getting the knots out before you shower will drastically improve the number of tangles you have when you get out of the shower.
Rinse with cool water
Brr! Although this isn’t always ideal it will work wonders for your hair. Rinsing with cool water will make your hair shiny, smoother, and help lock in the conditioning products into your hair!
These tips and tricks may seem small, but they will produce big results for your hair! There’s no getting around washing your hair, so make sure you’re doing everything in your power to keep it healthy and happy. It will thank you with a good hair day ;)
