1. Start with your eating habits
The roots of all skin, nail and hair problems could be fixed by changing what you are feeding your body. This a very important factor that could be affecting the way your hair look and feel. Read our 9 Superfoods to Healthy Hair to learn more about the eating habits that will improve your hair health.
2. Turn down the temperature
The repeated blowouts and not using the right tools and products when styling your hair are without doubt wearying your hair. In Get Beautiful Straight Hair Minus the Damage, we show you how to reduce the heat exposure and choose the right straightener according to your hair type.
3. Don’t over-wash your hair
Over-washing can strip away the natural oils and proteins that keep your hair healthy. This could also turn into a vicious cycle as your scalp starts to produce more oil leading your hair to become greasy faster. The trick is to limit washing your hair to 3 times a week. If it gets greasy too fast, use a dry shampoo in between washes.
4. Choose what’s right for your hair
One of the choices that could have the most damaging effect on your hair health is using the wrong products. Not all hair types are the same and that’s why you’ll find different shampoos and conditioners lining up the shelves. Choose anti-frizz options if you have thick and curly hair, and a product that will give your hair volume if you have fine hair. Also, don’t forget that color-treated hair will need specially formulated products.
5. Give it some extra care
If your hair is already extra-dry and brittle, you will need to give it some extra nourishment and repair the damage build-up. Conditioning is always key and Pantene Pro-V 3 Minute Miracle Milky Damage Repair will give you an intense hair treatment in a conditioner you can use during every wash. Also, use Pantene Rescue Shots Hair Ampoules for extra hydration once or twice a week.
