We expect a lot from our hair. We’re continually washing, blow drying and styling it to death, while still hoping for it to stay shiny, healthy and soft. Sounds next to impossible right?
Keep these things in mind, be as kind to hair as you can, and enjoy the look of a gorgeous mane, every day of the week!
- Do give it a break.
Before you freak out at the idea of stepping out of your front door with completely natural hair, I’d just like to reiterate that I did mean just a break, when it’s convenient for you. Letting your hair air dry every so often, when your social calendar is slow, for example, is like hitting restart on your laptop, or getting a good night’s sleep. It’ll do your worn-out tresses wonders.
- Don’t skimp on quality products.
I honestly learned this myself the hard way. Why go to all the trouble of paying for a great cut, style and blow-dry, without following it up with quality shampoo and conditioner? In the case of good hair maintenance, you get what you pay for. If you’re not using the right product that’s tailored to keep your locks in the best possible condition, your hair will become dull and damaged over time, which will end up costing you more overall as you’ll have to return to your hair dresser to rectify the situation. Investing in the best products for your hair and taking the time to use them properly is well worth the effort and will keep your hair looking amazing in both the short and long term.
