Beauty Tip Tuesday: Healthy Hair 101

There is an art to maintaining healthy hair.  Here are a few helpful tips:

1.) Wash hair less frequently.  (2-3 times a week is enough)  On the days you don't wash, rinse with water and apply conditioner to your ends.  If you don't want to wet your hair, use a dry shampoo on the roots to absorb excess oils.

3.) Use a "healthy" shampoo.  A lot of companies are making sulfate-free formulas that won't dry out your hair.  L'Oreal makes a good one.

4.) Use a hair mask once a week.  (especially if you use heating tools, like flat irons and curling irons.)  My favorite is by Kerastase.

5.) Try to let your hair air dry once and a while.  Heating tools, will dry out your hair if used every day.

6.)  Use a natural, boar bristle brush.  They massage the scalp with your natural oils, making your hair extra shiny.  Marilyn Brushes are the best!!  

7.) Get your hair trimmed on a regular basis ( every 6-8 weeks).  When you skip regualr cuts, you get split ends, which make the hair look frizzy and dry.
