Let’s face it, when your hair is in bad shape, you notice! There are many factors that can cause dry, dull hair, such as overdoing heat styling, exposing hair in the sun for too long, immersing hair in hard water or chlorine (when swimming), a poor diet, and more.
We’re sharing with you 5 tips to revive your locks with a consistent hair routine below:
1. Use a leave-in conditioner
If your hair is used to color treatment, heat styling, chemical straightening, overexposure to the sun and chlorine, it is vital to add a leave-in conditioner to your hair routine on your wash days. It will make the biggest difference on your hair as it will make it look shiny from dull, nourished and moisturized from dry and damaged. It’s best to find a leave-in conditioner for dry, damaged hair. Check the ingredients and look for natural oils in the formula like Argan oil.
2. Shampoo less frequently
Shampooing too frequently can strip your hair of its natural oils which are meant to help to moisturize your hair. We recommend washing your hair 1-2 times a week, depending on your hair type.
3. Use a hair oil for pre/post styling
Using a pre-styling natural hair oil forms a protective layer around the hair so heat tools do not strip moisture away when styling. The results after using a hair oil for dry hair is shinier, softer, improved elasticity and texture. The Ultimate Nourishing Leave-in Hair Oil is great for dry, damaged hair as it can be used for pre-styling and post styling. This nourishing hair oil adds tons of shine instantly, tames frizz, and hydrates all in one.
3. Do an overnight hair treatment weekly
If you want to see your hair back to life at a faster pace, doing an overnight hair oil treatment at least once a week is essential. Coat your hair from scalp to ends with The Ultimate Nourishing Leave-in Hair Oil and leave it on while you sleep. Once you wash it out in the morning, you will see your hair is noticeably shinier, stronger and softer.
4. Diet and supplements
What you put inside is just as important as what you put on the outside. Adding omega 3s like fish oil and antioxidants such as blueberries and spinach are great support for an overall healthy diet and for achieving shiny hair. Zinc is also a great supplement in helping improve your immune system which affects your hair growth or loss.
5. Trim your hair regularly
The ultimate way to get rid of damage is to essentially cut it off, if you are noticing your ends are split and breaking off, the best thing to do is to cut it!
