We know how it goes. Curly, dark color hair that you want to be straight and blonde. Just wanting to rock your natural hair the next day. What you want from your hair changing from day to day and still trying to keep your hair healthy and happy. You see these other people, and your stylist with different hair every time you see them, and their hair looks good every single time. How do they do it? Here are our top 5 tips for keeping your hair at its best.
Wash your hair 2-3 times per week maximum. If you feel the need to wash in betwee use a CoWash instead of shampoo and conditioner, and dry shampoo for all the rest.
Always use cool-cold water when showering. As cool as you can manage! Cold water is good both for your hair and your skin, reducing frizz, prevents moisture loss, and increases circulation.
Use a heat protectant! Always! Aerosol heat protectants are great for use even on dry hair, so there is no excuse not to use one.
Use products designed for your hair type - this means speak to a professional and let them make recommendations. If you don't like a product you tried most places will happily work with you to find the right product combo, so your hair always looks and feels its best.
Always use the lowest heat setting needed when using hot tools. If you aren't sure what heat setting is best for you, start on the lowest setting your tools has, and pass over your hair 1 time. Slowly increase your heat setting until you can achieve your desired look in one slow, but steady moving pass. You never want to hold a heat tool in one place for an extended period of time or you could burn your hair.
