As we get older, our luscious locks become drier and more prone to damage. Add hair color, curling irons and blow drying, and your hair can be a hot mess. So what can you do to minimize the damage? Here are 6 quick hair tips to get your hair looking great.
1. Use a gentle shampoo
Regular shampoo can be very drying. If you use hair color or do keratin straightening, you are probably using a sulfate free shampoo already. My favorite is Drybar Double Standard. It smells amazing, is sulfate free and has conditioner built in. You should also wash less often and use a dry shampoo if needed to keep your hair looking clean.
2. Deep Condition
Get an Olaplex treatment in a salon and follow up with the home treatment once a week. Olaplex is proven to repair damage to the hair shaft on a molecular level. There are other deep conditioning treatments but this one has a lot of buzz right now.
3. Leave-in conditioner
Leave-in conditioner always makes my hair so soft. You just have to find one that you like. My favorite is L’Oréal Extraordinary Oil Transforming Oil-in-Cream. Every time I use it someone comments that my hair smells so good. You can buy it everywhere. A lot of girls rave about It’s A 10 too.
4. Limit Heat
We all know that a lot of blow drying and curling iron use is tough on our hair. You can air dry and still add style with a sock bun over night or putting in French braids for a few hours before your hair is almost dry.
5. Use a silk pillow case
Hairstylists swear by silk pillow cases. It minimizes damage while you are sleeping and can extend a blow out if you got one. You can buy fancy ones at Sephora and Nordstrom or get less expensive options on Amazon. They all work just as well.
6. Take Biotin
These vitamins will definitely make a difference on your hair and nails. You can buy this everywhere.
