Beautiful hair is healthy hair. Without the health factor, your hair may lack shine, volume and vitality. The right maintenance will help keep your hair in tiptop shape and looking its best at all times–no matter how hectic your life!
Is your hair constantly taking the heat from blowdryers, flat irons and other heat styling? Heat can really dry it out, leaving it brittle and prone to breakage. It’s a good idea to give your hair a break from hot tools and–believe it or not–to try to wash your hair every other day instead of every single day of the week. Use a heat protectant product before blow-drying or using hot tools.
Try skipping a shampoo every other day. No way, you say?
If you work out every day and sweat it up at the gym, it may seem impossible to skip a shampoo. Try a dry shampoo or rinsing your hair in water only. You can also try to schedule your shampoos on the days you know you’ll be putting in a workout that will require a shampoo afterwards.
Another extremely important factor in the healthy hair equation is regular haircuts. Space your haircuts no more than six to eight weeks apart for long hair, and four to five weeks for short hair. This will guard your hair against breakage and split ends.
When split ends start, they need to be taken care of soon because the “split” can keep going right up the hair shaft, leaving a not-so-pretty situation. Regular haircuts not only prevent split ends, but they restore volume to layered haircuts by helping to maintain the shape.
“Don’t even think of picking up that store-bought color!”
Remember that salon quality color is the only color that should ever touch your lovely locks. Box color may contain metallic dyes which are harmful to the hair. Not only this, but if you should decide to color with a different shade later, the metallic dyes can make for a very messy situation because they can conflict with other hair color formulas.
Take the guesswork out of color by letting us do the work for you! And remember: we use organic hair color here at Hier and Haines. Beautiful in every way.
