Winter is around the corner and that means excessive DRYNESS, possible breakage, and perhaps split ends.
Here are five fast and furious tips to combat those issues:
1. Condition Condition Condition. Invest in a super moisture infused deep conditioner to hydrate and replenish your hair from the cold winds and those pesky wool hats that always seem to snag our hair. I'd say deep-condition at minimum once a week.
Suggestion: Dabur Vatika Natural Conditioning Treatment --Love it Love it Love it.
2. Trim your hair of any split or frail ends. A trim doesn't necessarily mean a hair cut (so don't fear) it can save your hair from further damage.
Suggestion: Purchase Roux Mendex Treatment from Sally Beauty Supply. I've used it a couple of times for my raggedy ends and noticed an instant difference. I must say though, that this is just a temporary solution for me when I'm unable to get in a stylist's chair for a trim. But, it works wonders! Trust me.
3. Put the blow dryers, curling iron, flat irons, any heat appliances down for a while. By now we all know that excessive heat on the hair shaft is no bueno. However, if you choose to do so keep the temperature setting at a low setting and use heat protectant serum to protect the hair from the hot tool.
Suggestion: Chi Silk Infusion
4. Use a Sulfate Free Shampoo - Most shampoos that have sulfates are drying and harsh so using one that is FREE of sulfates will minimize the risk of drying out your hair. There are gazillion of sulfate free shampoos on the market now. Go to your nearest drug store and skim the shelves for one that fits your particular needs.
Suggestion: Organix Haircare - so many varieties to choose from.
5. Don't Neglect Your Scalp - your scalp is the root of most hair issues (pun intended). So keeping it fresh, clean, and free of product can only help boost your hair's overall health. Massage your scalp a couple of times a week to stimulate blood flow and keep it happy and nourished.
These are just 5 quick tips to keep your hair in shape this fall and winter when you don't have a weekly standing hair appointment with a stylist (which I rarely do).
