As the year comes to a close, I’m left reminiscing over the many high and low hair moments that were both beautiful and detrimental! No matter what you’ve done to your hair over the past twelve months, 2016 is your chance to start anew. Since enhanced hair care is always a respectable resolution, we’d like to share our healthy hair resolutions for 2016.
Whittle Down Your Washes
One of the best parts about our ultra-rich, concentrated shampoo formulas is that they are so effective at removing buildup, dirt, and excess oil that you don’t need to wash your hair every single day. In fact, daily washes may strip your hair and scalp of the natural oils that keep them hydrated and healthy. Instead, try washing every 2-3 days if possible, and if you simply can’t stand it, I have good news: Number 4 shampoo is formulated with all-natural organic ingredients that are gentle enough to use every day.
Set a Salon Schedule
You know that calendar you got for Christmas? Use it to plan out your salon visits! Life can get busy, but you all know that. Schedule your hair appointments in advance so you can be proactive and get a jump on any damage or breakage that needs healing before it becomes too dramatic. Bonus, regular trims (when you do have breakage or split ends) will help hair continue to grow.
Shield Your Strands
Heat is the number one enemy of healthy hair, which is why in the New Year, we resolve to use Thermal Styling Spray before any high temperatures touch our tresses. Simply apply 1-3 spritzes to damp hair before styling to add a protective barrier that doesn’t allow the heat to penetrate deeply into your shafts. You still get all the style, without the loss of moisture.
Save Your Scalp
If you ignore your scalp, you’re missing a key component in long, shiny, healthy hair. Without a nourished scalp, you’re likely to encounter the dreaded flakes or itchiness that nobody has time for. An overnight mask is the most effectuve way to keep these woes at bay! A silver dollar amount of Reconstructing Masque massaged into your roots and through your ends works wonders; apply and wear overnight under a shower cap for heavenly hydration!
