KEEP YOUR HAIR SHINY & HEALTY
After shampooing, use a hydrating conditioner and massage it in with your fingertips before rinsing it out. To close the cuticle and enhance shine, try rinsing your hair with cold water. Avoid overly hot water and hard water, which both dry out your hair even more. Don’t forget that what we eat impacts our entire body, including hair. To nourish dry locks from the inside out, eat healthy foods such as plenty of fresh fruit and green veggies, lean meats and dairy, and avoid saturated fat. When snacking, nourish your dry tresses by munching on nuts.
When you color your hair, wait at least 48 hours to shampoo, preferably longer. This will give the color plenty of time to set. Hair color with natural oils will help retain moisture in your color-treated hair and leave it looking shiny and healthy.To prevent water from washing away your vibrant color, the answer is simple: Wash your hair less often. To retain those natural oils that help condition your color-treated hair, shampoo just two or three times per week, and never more than every other day. This will help your color last longer and help maintain health in your colored hair.
STYLE YOUR HAIR DAILY
After towel drying your hair, apply a thermal heat protection product to your hair. When you blow-dry your hair, don’t wait more than 20 minutes after you get out of the shower to start. Begin blow-drying before your hair is more than 30 percent dry to get maximum volume and prevent stubborn cowlicks. Don’t blow dry close to your roots, and never blast the same section of hair for more than 15 seconds. This will speed up drying time, which means less exposure to drying heat. Finish with a round brush to smooth your hair. The last few minutes of blow-drying are when your hair is most vulnerable to damage.
