Fall is almost over and we are stepping straight into Winter 2015!
As you all probably know from my many blogs about bleached hair, that my hair is in fact bleached and I have a hair care routine, that even I didn’t know I was capable of. It’s a little ridiculous at times! (READ HERE)
Here are some quick hair tips to help your hair through the harsher conditions that Winter brings.
- STOP WASHING YOUR HAIR EVERY DAY
I know this may seem hard but you can do it. If you wash your hair every day, you are stripping your hair of it’s natural oil. I know you feel like your hair gets oily and you need to wash it every day, but trust me, you don’t. I used to wash my hair every day and when I got it bleached, the ends were getting so dry that I just couldn’t do it any more. I began washing every other day and then eventually every 3 days. With the help of dry shampoo and my hair pulled back into a messy bun on Day 3, I get through it and you can do too!
2. USE A HAIR MASK WEEKLY
Preferably one with protein to repair any damage that you may have caused to your locks.
3. USE HAIR OILS
Pick your favorite, Mine is 100% the original Moroccan Oil. Nothing beats it for me. I have also reviewed Redken’s Hair Oil which you can read here. If you have nothing else. Stick some coconut oil in over night and prepare for amazing tresses upon wakening!
4. BRUSH YOUR HAIR PROPERLY
As Drake would say, “Started from the bottom now we here”. Don’t brush your hair from the root down. Start about half way down and work your way up the hair shaft.
5. USE A HEAT PROTECTOR SPRAY
No excuse- there a thousand to choose from and all you have to do is spray a little on before using heat on your hair. It’s such little effort for something that really makes a big impact.
6. GET REGULAR HAIRCUTS
I do not do this. I don’t even know why I put this tip in here but I think it kind of goes without saying that this is true. Just getting the dead ends off, makes you hair so much healthier looking.
7. WEAR A HAT
Sounds obvious but you have to protect your hair from harsh elements and what better way to do that, than with your favorite hat!
