It’s time to give your head and hair care regimen some TLC. With the help of these tips your hair and scalp can be healthy and strong.
- Know your scalp— Your scalp makes a big difference in your washing habits. If you have an oily scalp, your hair needs to be washed more often, sometimes as often as once a day. A drier scalp or color-treated hair should be washed less frequently.
- Wash wisely— Shampoo is your friend, but avoid scrubbing at your hair. Massage shampoo into your scalp and let it rinse through your hair to prevent breakage and flyaways.
- Conditioning leads to healthier hair— Always condition your hair after shampooing to strengthen your hair, protect it from UV rays, decrease static electricity and keep it shiny. Choose a conditioner specially formulated for your hair type and use it primarily on the tips of your hair for the best results.
- Protect your hair from yourself— Beauty doesn’t have to be detrimental to your hair. Let your hair air-dry or use the lowest setting if you must use a hair dryer. Remember to use a wide tooth comb if you comb it while it’s wet, and use the lowest settings on any hot hair tools.
