Welcome to the healthy hair chat!
For the first few parts of the series, we'll just talk about ways that you can encourage healthy hair. Just simple things, that you can incorporate into your routine to show your hair some love, and even some ideas on how to implement these changes.
Our hair goes through so many changes, in order to keep us beautiful, it's only fair that we give our hair the best care so that it can flourish! Continue reading for 3 easy tips to healthy hair (and growth!)
Give strands a break from constant styling
This can be accomplished in MANY different ways, and not every method or change will work for everyone's lifestyle! The just of the break is to give your hair a rest from the stress of a comb/brush! Could you imagine constantly being poked, prodded, rubbed, stretched, etc? Definitely would tire you out! Maybe even break you.
Our hair can get the same way.
Low manipulation styles •
Protective styles •
Limiting tension styles (tight braids, ponytails, buns) •
Tying down edges (as opposed to styling daily) •
Washing 1-2x/week (as opposed to daily) •
Sleep with silk
This is such a simple way to give your hair some love, and honestly add luxury to your life! ('Cause who doesn't wanna enjoy the softness of satin/silk on their skin?!)
This tip is important because it reduces the stress and friction placed on the hair at night (while you toss & turn, lol).
• scarves, etc.
Keep hair hydrated!
The MOST IMPORTANT part of a healthy hair routine! Keeping your hair hydrated (and moisturized) is vital for healthy hair that grows and flourishes! See your hair as an extension of your body, it needs water too! The same as a plant has roots that need water & nutrients, the same is to be said about our hair. But don't worry, it's simple!
Always pair your conditioner/moisturizer with water.
Hydrate or Die?
Water your hair (1-3x/week, as needed) •
Use a moisturizing conditioner/styler •
(preferably with a butter/moisturizer, humectant, and emollient)
Seal in hydration (& moisture) with an oil •
Opt for a Mane Temptation Moisturizer/Oil •
(which contains a butter, humectant, emollient & oil)
