New Years Resolution: Hair Care!

Hair care can sometimes seem like a daunting duty, however hair care is not only essential but it can take just a few steps added to your weekly beauty routine. A hair care routine will ensure that no matter what hairstyle you choose your hair will always look healthy and beautiful.

Don't Wash Your Hair Everyday

Washing your hair can strip your hair of natural oils and leave hair extra brittle. Ideally you should wash your hair 3-4 times a week. Its hard to break the habit of washing your hair every day but try putting your hair in an up-do or a braid for a day to avoid having to wash it. Another great alternative is dry shampoo. Here at the salon we carry R+Co Badlands Shampoo and it is a hair care dream!

GET REGULAR HAIR TRIMS

Cutting your hair can be a traumatizing experience, especially if you are trying to grow out your hair, however it is crucial to growing out beautiful and healthy hair. It is recommended that you get your hair trimmed every 6-8 weeks. Don't Slack! Regularly trimming your hair prevents split ends and fly always providing for shinier and thicker hair. This will make the hair appear to grow faster because the hair will break less and allow for your hair to grow longer in a shorter amount of time. Consider scheduling appointments ahead of time every time you visit your hairstylist to help keep you on a healthy hair schedule.

Use a Detangling Brush
