the ultimate guide to healthy hair

the ultimate guide to healthy hair

we all know those gorgeous locks don’t just happen, but that doesn’t mean achieving shiny, healthy hair has to be a total headache either.

the good news is, all it takes is a teensy bit of care (and the right products) to keep your tresses in top condition.

and here are our top 4 tips for doing just that:

minimise the damage

heat styling, chemical treatments, excessive washing, uv rays, chlorine water and hair accessories…

these are just a few of the things that can compromise the health of your hair.

and although avoiding all of the above would be ideal, we know that’s not exactly realistic. instead, minimise these stress factors when you can and protect your hair when you can’t.

catch up with your beloved hairdresser on the reg

you probably wouldn’t think it, but getting your hair trimmed regularly will actually help you grow longer, healthier hair by chopping off split ends before they can wreak havoc.

professionals recommend a salon visit every 6-8 weeks.

get your hair mask on weekly

using a deep conditioning hair mask once a week doesn’t just give you shiny, luscious-looking locks — it can also protect your hair from damage, while also repairing it. 

and when it only takes 10 mins, there’s no excuse not to!

use the right tools

your iPhone isn’t the only thing that’s come along way —newer hairdryers, straighteners and curling wands focus on styling hair without completely destroying it.

when it comes to hairdryers, look for salon-quality, high wattage and either a ceramic or titanium coating (which distributes the heat more evenly) 

that’s it, boo. 

we told you shiny, healthy hair was totally achievable!
