5 Tips to Make Every Day a Good Hair Day
Having a bad hair day? It doesn’t have to be. Whether your hair is long or short, coloured or natural, follow these 5 easy tips and say hello to a 'good' hair day.
1. Regular Trims
The single most important tip is to have regular trims. Even if you are growing it, your hair needs snipping every six to eight weeks or you risk thin straggly locks. Cutting off the split ends off, before they have the chance to go further up the hair shaft, prevents further damage from tangles and breakage. Hair grows unevenly too, so regular trims are vital to maintain shape, and make it much easier for you to style at home.
2. Scalp Massage
A simple two-minute scalp massage daily is enough to stimulate increased blood flow to the scalp and improve the health of your hair. But let’s face it; any excuse for a scalp massage is a good thing.
3. Heat Protection
It’s very easy to fry the ends of your hair with hairdryers, straightening irons, hot rollers and curling wands. Thankfully there are some great products around to protect your ends while you style your hair, like Paul Mitchell Soft Style Heat Seal or Evo Easy Tiger Straightening Balm - especially for straightening. Remember to use them regularly; they’ll save you from split ends and assist with styling.
4. Good Nutrition
Your hair reflects the health of your body. If you eat well, with the proper nutrition your hair will show it. There are also many nutritional supplements and vitamins available to help boost hair health. Look for ones with B complex, biotin, folic acid, iron, zinc, flax seed oil, Omega 3, and silica. Amino Acids are also good for your hair.
5. Quality Hair Products Specific to Your Hair
Gone are the days of the ‘family shampoo’ and thankfully so. With so many hair types, such as coloured, natural, thin, frizzy and more, it’s vital to select the products that suit your hair. So whilst it may be tempting to grab any old shampoo off the shelf, using the right product will not only improve the condition of your hair, but make it easier to style as well.
