That fresh just-out-of-the-salon look can only be achieved by professionals since they know all the industry secrets and use the best products and tools. However, if you don’t have the money or time to see a hairstylist every day, don’t worry. With these tips from professionals, your hair will always look healthy, gorgeous, and photo-ready.
Wash Your Hair Less Frequently
One of the worst things you can do for your hair is washing it every day, it’s a common mistake people make. Frequent use of shampoos and other products can make your hair look dull (especially if you love your shower hot) and remove natural protective oils. Unless your scalp is very oily, one or two washes a week is all you need.
Invest in Good Tools
Having the right tools for hair care is crucial. Don’t be scared to set aside $100 or $150 for a dryer or a curling/flat iron. These quality products give your hair minimal damage and the best hairstyling results. They also come with a good warranty, since there is always a chance something will burn out, no matter how top-shelf the tool is.
Maintain Your Hairstyle
A stylist who knows how to give you a proper haircut is worth their weight in gold. They will not only make you look amazing but also provide you with many tips on how to maintain your look at home. Also, don’t forget to get regular trims if you always want to look fresh and put together. People with long hair usually need to see their stylist every six to eight weeks, while those with a short hairstyle need to go in more frequently—every four to six weeks.
Opt for Quality Extensions
Extensions are a great way to change your hairstyle and add length and volume to your hair without any damage. However, if you want your extensions to look beautiful and not comical, you need to invest a little bit more money. They also come in various styles, so you can even grab special hair extension clip-in pieces to add volume to your hair. These are super easy to use and will help you achieve your dream hair in minutes and protect your real hair from too much damage.
Use Leave-In Conditioner
If you want to keep your hair healthy, make sure to use a conditioner after every shampoo treatment. A quality product with hydrating properties can bring your dry hair to life, especially if you often go swimming (chlorine and salt are quite damaging).
Add an Oil Treatment
According to experts and clients, Argan oil is an excellent addition to your hair care because it improves the texture of the strands and makes your hair shiny. Every once in a while, do an Argan oil scalp treatment (if you run out, just replace it with olive oil). Pour one or two tablespoons of oil on your hair, massage, leave in for 1-2 hours and rinse out. If you have dry, frizzy, and dull hair, you can use coconut oil for some extra boost.
Battle Hair Loss From Within
If you’re struggling with hair loss, it’s important to know that Minoxidil is the only FDA-approved treatment for female hair loss. This solution boosts the blood flow in your scalp feeding it with fresh oxygen and nutrients that feed the hair follicles. It wakes up the lazy hair follicles and stimulates hair growth. However, Minoxidil is a prescription drug, so if you want to take a more natural route, look for products with palmetto berry, green tea extract, and caffeine. They protect against DHT, a hormone that affects hair follicles and stunts their activity.
Rethink Your Pillowcase
Most people never think about how their pillowcase affects their hair, and it’s a true shame. Cotton and other similarly textured materials are abrasive and tend to rub your hair causing electricity and damage to strands. So ditch your regular pillowcase and opt for satin or silk. These are smooth so maintaining your style is much easier and you can get ready in no time in the morning. Plus, you’ll feel like royalty when sleeping on your silk pillowcase!
If you want to have beautiful hair, you need to start with healthy strands and scalp, so make sure to stay faithful to your hair care routine. With these simple tips, you will manage to nurture your hair and always look like you just got out of a hair salon.
