With the New Year just days away, we share seven hair resolutions that will help make 2018 a year of healthy and strong locks!...

 

 

 

 

 

Drink enough water

Glass of water

 

 

 

 

 

Our bodies are made up of 60 to 70% water and our hair is almost 25% water.  Keeping our bodies hydrated is the best way to get moisture to our skin and scalp.  Drink enough water each day to give your hair flexibility and nourish your hair follicles.

 

 

 

 

 

Deep condition regularly

Aphogee Two-Step Protein Treatment

 

 

Give your hair the star treatment it deserves and indulge in a deep conditioner 1-2 times a week. 

 

Use protein conditioners from time to time to strengthen your hair and help it hold up against frequent combing and heat styling.  Be sure to follow the instructions on your products regarding how ofen to use treatments and how long to leave them in your hair.  Protein conditioners are powerful so shouldn't be used every day.

Nourish your hair from within

Avocado

 

 

Commit to a healthy diet rich in hair-strengthening foods to take care of your hair from the inside out.  Dig in to foods such as avocados that are rich in omega oils, essential for healthy hair and faster hair growth.

 

 

  

Protect your hair while you sleep

John Lewis Silk Oxford Pillowcase

 

 

We spend eight hours a day sleeping, so it’s no surprise that the type of pillowcase we use has an effect on the condition of our hair.  Sleeping on a silk pillowcase or wrapping your hair in silk, helps to prevent your locks from snags and breakage.

Prep your hair for the occasionChidora Wool Bobble Hat

 

If you’re using heat on your hair, make sure your tresses are up to the task.  Use a good quality heat protectant to help your hair withstand heat and give it the protection it needs.

 

If you are stepping out in harsh weather conditions, why not shield your tresses with silk.  A silk-lined woolly hat offers protection from strong winds and freezing temperatures in winter.  In the summer, cover your hair in a silk scarf or lined summer hat and use a sunscreen spray to protect exposed hair from harmful sun rays.

This is perhaps the most important resolution of all.  No matter what your hair goals are, remember to love your hair right now.  Every hair texture, length, type and condition deserves it!
