Regular trims will keep your hair healthy. Depending on the thickness of your hair you should visit your stylist every 6-to-8 weeks. If you are trying to grow your hair and worried that your stylist will cut too much off…stop worrying and go for regular trims, but be sure and tell your hairdresser you only want the ends “dusted.” (This is hairdresser lingo that every stylist understands… you’ll walk away with healthy ends and the length you wanted to keep!

 

2. Don’t Just Brush this Advice Off!

Hair is weak when it is wet. When your hair is wet, think of it as your most expensive delicate silks! When wet, comb your hair rather than using a hairbrush. This practice will help prevent dreaded split ends.

Use a wide toothed comb and work from the ends up!

When shampooing, give your hair a thorough wash! How? Make sure you massage your scalp using the tips of your fingers in circular motions~ Do this a half a dozen times to give it a full cleanse – and be sure you rinse your hair thoroughly. Get in the habit…. You’ll see and feel the difference!

4. Have a Blast!

Seal hair cuticles by blasting your head with cold water once you’ve rinsed the conditioner out – this will give your hair more of a shine. If you don’t want to shock your entire body in the shower with a blast of cold water- Seal the deal this way: Simply run your head under the tap in your bath tub once you are out of the shower-only your scalp and hair will get the cold blast!

After you jump out of the shower, seal the deal with a quick cold rinse to your head!
