Did you know that 68% of women are unhappy with their hair?
To some degree, we have to work with what nature gave us. But whether your hair is long or short, curly or straight, there are always ways to make it more beautiful.
Wondering how to get beautiful hair? Here are six expert tips to give you healthy, gorgeous hair every day.
1. Wash Properly
Most of us don’t need to wash our hair daily. In fact, experts recommend waiting as long as possible between shampoos to prevent your hair from becoming too dry.
You don’t want your hair to be too oily, of course, but frequent washing strips it of valuable oils and leaves it prone to damage. When you shampoo, massage it only into your roots. When you condition, avoid the roots and focus on the ends.
2. Limit the Heat
There are times when we need to blow-dry our hair or use a curling iron. But if you’re using these heating appliances daily, you’re causing a lot of damage to your hair.
Switch to a cooler setting on your dryer or let your hair air-dry whenever possible. Try wearing a loose, damp braid one day and you’ll have a beautiful wavy style the next.
On days when you absolutely must use heat, spritz your hair with a heat protectant before you style.
3. Change Your Diet
Did you know that certain foods and vitamins can contribute to luscious locks?
If you want gorgeous hair, it starts with what’s on the inside. Try taking supplements or adding these foods to your diet:
- Lean protein
- Vitamin E
- Omega 3s
The right combination of vitamins and minerals is guaranteed to improve the appearance of your hair. These same vitamins and minerals will also give you healthier skin and nails too!
4. Switch to Silk Sheets
Yes, you read that right. It turns out that standard cotton sheets and pillowcases can damage your hair cuticles while you sleep.
The solution? Switch to silk. Not only is it softer and cooler, but it will keep your hair smoother, healthier, and frizz-free.
5. Get Regular Trims
If you’re trying to grow gorgeous long hair, you might be tempted to skip those regular trims.
Don’t do it! Waiting too long between trims will actually sabotage your efforts to grow longer hair. This is because it leaves your hair more prone to split ends and breakage.
Stick with your normal schedule of trims every 6-8 weeks, even while you’re growing your hair. We promise–it will still grow!
6. Try Conditioning Treatments
Keratin hair treatment is all the rage right now, but it’s not the only option for perfectly smooth hair.
Experiment with different types of leave-in conditioners to see which one makes your hair feel best. You can also try an all-natural conditioning treatment, like soaking your hair in coconut or olive oil for 30 minutes before you wash it.
