Good news! It’s totally attainable for everybody to have hair that looks and feels fantastic every day. Once you know the right habits to get into, taking proper care of your tresses will become such a natural part of your daily routine, you won’t even think twice about it anymore. Regular maintenance that keeps your hair in tip-top condition will save time and money on trips to the hairdresser, and there’ll be no need to fork out on pricey treatments to fix any damage that’s been caused to your locks… because you won’t need to!
Here are the top three habits of women with great hair:
Women with visibly healthy-looking hair tend to avoid heat styling and chemically colouring their hair as much as possible, and when they do, they always use a heat protectant. You’ll be amazed at how much healthier your locks will become when you ease off on the hot tools. Even cutting down your usage to half as much can make a world of difference, and as air-dried hair is huge right now, with so much information available on how to do it well, it’s never been easier. Regular colouring and bleaching can cause irreparable damage to the hair. If you want to change things up and keep your hair looking and feeling great, try hair extensions to give you a boost instead.
To reduce flyaways, women with smooth, manageable hair often sleep on a silk pillowcase. If you do this, your hair will be so much smoother when you wake up, and it will take you less time to fix in the morning than if you slept on cotton for example, which can rough up your hair during the night; you’ll barely have to run a brush through it before styling.
Women with lush hair also take care of themselves by watching what they eat. If you think that what you put in your mouth doesn’t affect the health of your hair, think again. Your hair, skin, and nails all need essential vitamins and proteins to look their very best. A diet rich in iron, zinc, Omega-3 fatty acids and protein, such as lean red meat, chicken and fish will stimulate the hair follicles in your scalp and help boost the volume and growth of your hair, keeping your locks shiny and healthy.
