If you feel like your hair could use some TLC lately, here’s some DO’s and DON’T on keeping your hair healthy
DO switch your blow-dryer to a cooler setting once your hair is about 70% dry to reduce more heat damaging.
DO use a Deep Conditioning treatment at least once a week
DO use a thermal heat protectant spray before styling with heat.
DO look for a conditioner with Panthenol, Keratin or vitamins to add strengths and nutrients.
DO trim hair regularly to prevent split ends
DO wash your brushes/combs on regular basis with soap and water
DON’T ring and squeeze your wet hair with a towel, just blot instead. Or better yet, try using paper towels.
DON’T use the highest heat setting on your flat-iron, use the lowest setting that will still straighten your hair.
DON’T use a brush on wet hair, that’s when it’s the most fragile. Use a wide tooth comb.
DON’T over due it with hair elastics, they can do a number on your strands. Try using bobby pins, headbands, barrettes; things that wont cause damage.
DON’T skimp on nutrients! Drink lots of water, eat whole grains and veggies.
DON’T over brush your hair.
