How to Have Beautiful Healthy Hair

Heat

Routine, excessive overheating is certainly one way to damage hair. Cheap blow dryers, flat irons, and curling wands can quickly overheat. Instead of wasting your money on something that can damage your hair, consider investing in quality heat appliances with ion technology. 

An ionic blow dryer helps seal hair cuticles (cutting down on frizz) and break up water molecules into smaller particles. This enables moisture to evaporate faster, resulting in less heating time.

A ceramic or titanium curling or flat iron such as the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium-Plated Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron allows you the ability to control the iron’s temperature.

Wash & Rinse

Natural oil (called sebum) is important because it helps protect and strengthen your hair. To prevent hair from looking dry and dull you should avoid overwashing.  This is especially important for color treated hair. Avoid using hot water on your hair. Rinse hair with cold water and seal the cuticle to add shine and prevent frizz.

Invest in a quality all-natural shampoo and conditioner and massage your scalp once a week to encourage circulation and stimulate hair growth.
