How to Keep Your Hair Healthy

Maybe you’ve seen some of your girlfriends post a photo of their new hairdo on social media with the caption “New hair, who dis?” There are plenty of reasons women dye and cut their hair; whether it be a break up, a new trend, season change, a new year, or just a need for change. Whatever the reason is, what does your hair color really say about you? Maybe you’re rocking your natural color, or you’ve tried out various colors, there’s plenty to say about each shade!

Maybe you’ve seen some of your girlfriends post a photo of their new hairdo on social media with the caption “New hair, who dis?”

There are plenty of reasons women dye and cut their hair; whether it be a break up, a new trend, season change, a new year, or just a need for change. Whatever the reason is, what does your hair color really say about you?

Maybe you’re rocking your natural color, or you’ve tried out various colors, there’s plenty to say about each shade!

Ever wonder how can you keep your hair healthy?

Hair Care

Be sure to use high quality products that have natural ingredients with seeds and oils from argan, avocados, jojoba, olives, and shea. There’s also a chance you’re not using the right products; shampoo, conditioner, etc. for your hair type.

Determine your hair type, whether it’s dry, wavy, straight, or even oily. The right product can make a difference! And remember, less is more!

Take a look at all the hair products you use and determine which are necessary and best for your look. 

Limit Heat

While it’s a popular and useful tool for hair, heat can be damaging when overused. Limit the use of heat elements to only a few days a week to avoid dryness and color fading. You can manage this by giving your hair a break and switching up the style. Maybe a loose ponytail, braid, or even wearing a hat can save you from daily heat damage. 

Even if you don’t use a flat iron or a wand, most women blow dry their hair. Try to towel or air dry your hair as much as possible and hold the blow dryer at a decent distance.

Lastly, always use heat protectant! A few sprays of a quality product can really make a difference. 

Pick the Right Color

It’s important to pick a color or shade that’s going to compliment you, after all, your hair is a representation of you! According to a style director from eSalon, a custom hair color company, you should always take other things into account like your eye color, skin tone, and hair cut. 

Keeping Your Hair Healthy

So which color is your hair?

For me, my black hair can insinuate that I’m introspective, mysterious, modern, and exotic! Would you look at that! Also, I found out that black is the most common hair color in the world. Researchers are looking into hair color psychology and what it says about a person.

Color is typically the first thing you notice about someone or even something. It’s an easy way to describe someone’s appearance but it also shows some of their personality traits. We’ve all heard the saying that blondes have more fun.  

Rescuing Damaged Hair 

Using less heat, getting regular trims, moisturizing your hair to fight dryness, and eating healthy foods that are full of vitamins like B6 and B12, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and iron can all help repair damaged hair.

Moisturize your hair to fight dryness; dry hair looks and feels frizzy usually as a result of overheating, not conditioning. Doing repetitive hair treatments can also help keep your hair healthy and hydrated.

    Thanks for the tips! I actually do love coloring my hair (from blonde to blue to purple and so on) so it’s really dry right now. I agree about your tip about limiting heat, aside from damaging your hair, it actually makes semi-permanent colors fade faster. My natural hair color is black like yours, but I changed it so much so I guess my hair color would say that I have a rainbow personality :p Do you have plans of changing your hair color anytime soon?

    Thank you for these hair care tips. I tried treating my hair last year since it is in dire need of some TLC and pampering as my hair is so limp and dry. It was okay for awhile but now it’s turned back to its old dry self and am now looking for products to make my hair less dry and moisturized. I guess I should also add more stuff in my diet that will be helpful in keeping my hair healthy.
