Hair Growth

  3. Curly hair is more susceptible to sun damage. If your hair is curly, choose products that have UVA and UVB protectants

Hair Health

  1. Brush your hair from roots to end every night. It will help to distribute natural oils throughout your hair for a healthy shine
  2. You should always wash out conditioner with cold water. It will help to seal the cuticles and promote shine
  3. The sun can damage your hair. If going out for long periods of time, drape your hair with a scarf or hat
  4. No time to shower? You can use dry shampoo or baby powder to remove excess oil from your roots
  5. Use a heavy conditioning mask to prevent dry hair in the winter
  6. When using conditioner, concentrate on the ends of your hair. Your scalp and roots already produce oils, so adding more to them can make your hair greasy.
  7. Massaging your scalp every morning can help to strengthen your roots and promote hair growth
  8. Avoid heat styling as much as possible to prevent breakage and damage
  9. Don’t shampoo your hair every day. Your hair needs time between shampoos to hydrate and repair itself – so 2-3 shampoos per week is plenty
  10. Multivitamins that contain Biotin, Vitamin B, and Vitamin C can help to support hair health
  11. Dieting cleanses deprive your hair of nutrients. Don’t do them
  12. Don’t dry your hair all the way. Only dry until about 90% of moisture is removed. This will prevent damage and your hair will still fall perfectly into place
  13. Wear your hair down often to give it a break from pony tail and style damage
  14. Never wear a pony tail to bed
  15. Add 1 TBSP of baking soda to your shampoo once a week to remove all built-up products
  16. Use a t-shirt to dry your hair instead of a towel. It will prevent friction.
  17. Low heat settings can cause just as much damage as high heat settings because you will need to use them longer. To avoid damage, try a medium heat setting
  18. If you are noticing thinner hair, go for a check-up. It could be a sign of an underlying condition
  19. Pat your hair dry, don’t rub it.
  20. Skip the curling iron and try rollers for natural looking, healthy curls.

  24. Brush your hair gently and choose the proper brush. Avoid metal and round brushes and stick with a larger brush
  25. Hairbrushes are full of oils, dirt, germs, and bacteria. Clean them regularly

  27. Before diving in the pool, apply a coconut oil or olive oil to your hair. They will protect your hair from oil removal from the choline
  28. Wash your hair immediately after swimming so the chlorine doesn’t sit in your hair causing further damage
  29. Avoid showering in super hot water. It opens the cuticles of the hair and allows moisture to escape. Opt for cooler or luke-warm showers
  30. Invest in a water filter for your shower. A lot of water contains mineral deposits that can seep into your locks.
  31. Try the damaged hair challenge: Gently pull on the stands of your hair. If they snap easily, your hair is damaged, and you should lay off the chemicals for a while

Colour

  3. If going for a colouring appointment, use a deep conditioning mask three days before you go. It will help the colour absorb into your strands
  4. Don’t wash your hair before getting it coloured. You don’t want to strip your hair before going in for an intense colouring
  5. Use silver shampoo to keep blonde hair pure
  6. If your hair is bleached, avoid a ponytail. Stylists refer to it as instant hair death
  7. If you decide to go for a drastic colour change, ask your stylist about Olaplex. It acts as a barrier between bleach and your hair to prevent breakage
  8. Avoid washing your hair several days after colouring
  9. Going darker puts less strain on your hair than going lighter
  10. When going platinum blonde, add extra hydration to your hair by using coconut oil regularly

  6. Did you know that you can use a flat iron to de-wrinkle your clothes?
  7. For natural waves, wet your hair, let it dry 80%, and make braids on both sides. When you take them out in the morning you will have a natural curl

  9. When finished styling your hair, blow it on the “cool setting” for a few minutes. It will help the style hold for longer
