Are you tired of dull hair and split ends that have your hair crying SOS? Breaking bad habits and changing routines has its challenges. But the good news is – to enjoy hair health for longer between haircuts you just need to make a few tweaks to what you’re already doing.
These five hair tricks will save you from spending time and money on damage control at the salon – find out how!
The Power of Good Product: You may have a hard time rationalizing pricey shampoo and conditioner when you can buy-off brand for half the price. But when it comes to product, you get what you pay for! Skimping on product will cost you more in the long run. Investing in high-quality moisturizing shampoo and conditioner will give you beautiful, healthy hair for the long haul.
Condition First, Wash Second: It seems backwards, but breaking routine is, in this case, for the better. Putting conditioner on the bottom part on your hair before shampooing protects against split ends, since shampooing can zap moisture.
Don’t Go Overboard with Suds: When washing your hair, you only need to lather the top of your head. As you rinse, the suds will clean the rest of your hair without subjecting your ends to the over-drying effects of shampoo.
Treat Hair to A Weekly Mask: When you pamper your hair – it shows! Deep-conditioning your hair once a week (or everyday if you have thick hair) will restore the health to your hair.
A Matter of Time-ing: When styling your hair, apply the product as soon as possible. As your hair dries, moisture can get trapped and make your hair look frizzy. So avoid putting product on dry hair, if possible.
