Hair Care Basics
“I’d love to kiss ya, but I just washed my hair.” -Bette Davis
I have a couple hair maintenance requests for you all out there, they are as follows.
- CLEANSE and CONDITION your hair regularly. If your hair is thick or dry you can go a couple more days than the rest of us, so this rule use at your discretion.
- Put some kind of OIL in your hair when its wet. Just about every major hair product line has an oil, you just need to find one that works well with your hair. If your hair is extremely dry try argon oil or macadamia nut oil, they are heavier natural oils.
- SEAL your hair with some kind of spray conditioner. This helps not only condition your hair by sealing in moisture, but it can also stabilize the pH of your hair and seal out pollutants from your daily environment.
- Always use a HEAT PROTECTANT. This is crucial to the health of your hair especially if you flat-iron on a regular basis.
These four simple steps will improve the health of your hair, while protecting it in the long run. You can compare this to the cleaning and moisturizing of your face and body to keep everything looking young and healthy. You wouldn’t walk around with chapped lips would you?
