don’t know about you, but when the New Year rolls around, I start thinking about new hairstyles that I might want to try. No matter what hairstyle you might be interested in in 2018, here are five tips to keep your hair healthy and ready to take on the New Year
Drink lots of water. Drinking lots of water will help with clearing up skin and make your hair shinier and healthier. Eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables will also help your hair grow quickly and reduce breakage.
Take vitamins for hair and nail health.In the same vein, you can give your hair a boost by taking supplements that have Biotin (B7) in them which will help you grow long, thick, healthy hair. Fish oil supplements might also be another supplement worth considering.
Focus more on conditioning than shampooing.Shampooing will strip the natural oils from your hair and if you shampoo too much, you will find that your hair is drier, more unmanageable, and more prone to breakage. What you do want to focus on is adding moisture back into your follicles through conditioning your hair, leave-in treatments, and even oils. What works best for you will depend on your hair type so a little experimentation here is needed, but we love our moisturizing mist and coconut crème conditioner.
Cowash if you work up a sweat .If you’re exercising between shampoo days and work up a sweat, you can cowash your hair with just conditioner. It’ll keep you clean and your hair moisturized.
Rock a protective hairstyle.We discussed this in greater details in our blog about growing long locks, but putting your hair up and keeping the ends protected will reduce breakage and encourage growth.
