How to Repair Damaged Hair, Naturally!
They say the best conditioning treatment is a haircut. While this is 100% true, this doesn’t mean we want to chop off all your hard earned length. When people as us why their hair isn’t getting healthier we find it’s because they aren’t on a regular trim schedule. This allows hair to be long and healthy. Here are some tips to keep your hair healthy without cutting off your precious locks.
Reduce Washing & Styling
We recommend most people shampoo and condition their hair no more than 3 times per week. This allows your scalp's natural oils to work through the body of your hair. If you are constantly stripping your hair and scalp of those oils, your body will automatically start producing more oil and therefore, oilier hair. In order to keep your hair presentable and clean on those non-shampoo days, dry shampoo is your savior. A few of our faves to get you through the hard days are the Rahua Voluminous Dry Shampoo, $32 and Davines Hair Refresher, $28.50.
If you need to style your hair every day, at the very least you will want to make darn sure to protect your hair before you style it. A few of our faves are Davines Melu Shield, $36 and Leonor Greyl Condition Naturelle, $38. This duo makes sure the strands stay coated and protected, without being weighed down.
Want to Tie Your Hair?
Hair Ties are a big no no and a quick and easy way to cause breakage. When we wear our hair up, we only use the CA MAKES Bun Pins, $28. These handmade bun pins are a great way to get your hair (yes even thick and long hair) to stay put through a gym workout or even a top knot for a night out. This is a great way to avoid shampooing and look cut while not stressing your hair. WIN WIN!
To ensure your hair stays hydrated, nourished and healthy, we love doing hair masks at least once a week. Create a Sunday self care ritual and wrap your hair in a turban, put on your favorite face mask and chill. You deserve it. Plus your hair will thank you. Masking is crucial for color longevity and shine. We have some favorites for all hair types. these masks are super clean, natural and work wonders on dry parched hair:
To Hydrate and Replenish Brittle Hair
For Highlighted, Processed Hair
Ditch the Regular Towels
Because towels are made with tiny loops of rough fabric, this can lead to breakage and excess frizz. With a microfiber towel, you can opt for a softer and more gentler way to dry your hair. Our all time favorite hair towels are the Aquis Lisse Luxe Microfiber Hair Turbans, $30. These are a must have item for curly haired gals, those with fine hair or anyone in general that wants to avoid breakage.
While these tips will work wonders in keeping your hair healthy and beautiful, there is nothing as effective as a regular trim. We would love to see you in person, make an online booking appointment here!
