7 HAIR TIPS TO HEALTHIER LOOKING HAIR:
1.) ONLY WASH YOUR HAIR EVERY OTHER DAY:
By washing your hair every other day or even every third day you will allow your hair to stay moisturized and nourished since washing your hair every single day can really dry it out. This will also decrease the number of times you have to blow dry your hair which is also extremely drying to the hair.
2.) ALWAYS USE A LEAVE-IN CONDITIONER:
Using a leave-in conditioner has 2 purposes:
First, it will keep your hair nourished, tangle-free, and more manageable resulting in healthier-looking locks.
Second, and more importantly, if it has a heat protectant in it like the one I’m featuring in this post it will protect your hair from the drying effects a blowdryer and curling iron can cause. I love the leave-in conditioner by Alterna Caviar because it not only keeps your hair nourished but it will protect it from the factors that age hair since it’s full of special vitamins of minerals made specifically for aging hair.
3.) CHOOSE YOUR SHAMPOO AND CONDITIONER WISELY:
It’s crucial to use a shampoo and conditioner that is sulfate-free if you have color-treated hair like me. It’s also important to choose a shampoo and conditioner that cleanse the hair without drying it out and this shampoo and conditioner by Alterna Caviar do just that. It will leave your hair feeling and looking thicker, smoother, and more youthful! These products will also protect your hair from future damage because it literally makes each strand of hair stronger and more hydrated.
4.) USE A WEEKLY HAIR MASQUE:
I can’t stress enough how important this is! Using a hair masque once a week will make the biggest difference in the health of your hair! The one I’m recommending will leave your locks more nourished and hydrated than ever before! The best part, your hair will hold more curl since it’s more supple and moisturized and even have more volume which is always a plus!
5.) USE YOUR HAIR DRYER AND CURLING ON THE LOW OR MEDIUM SETTING:
Nothing damages our hair more than blow-dryers and curling irons! The only way to avoid this is to use a curling iron and blow dryer with multiple heat settings and only use the low or medium settings. The high heat setting will damage your hair like nothing you’ve ever seen so stay away from this setting! If you have a dryer or curling iron without a heat setting I highly recommend getting ones that do so you can adjust them to the lower heat settings to save your hair! I literally damaged my bangs so bag by using a curling iron on the high heat setting so I can honestly attest to this tip!
I use and LOVE the T-3 micro 1 1/4 inch barrel curling iron and it’s amazing! It has heat settings which I love and it’s very easy to use. This particular size barrel gives my hair the perfect loose waves every single time!
6.) USE A LIGHTWEIGHT HAIR SPRAY:
It’s important to use a hair spray that’s not drying or too strong because nothing ages our hair more than these types of products. I recommend using a light-weight hair spray such as this one by Alterna Caviar. It offers the perfect light-weight to medium hold without drying out the hair or weighing it down.
7.) FINISH WITH A HAIR OIL:
Nothing gets rid of fly-aways like a premium hair oil which is why I recommend using one after your finished styling your hair. This one by Alterna Caviar does a great job of smoothing the hair shaft and making the hair feel supple, shiny, and healthier!
