How to have a good hair day every day

A good haircut – or hairstyle – makes us feel like we can take on the world.

Our hair can say a lot about our personality, so it’s important to give our manes a little extra TLC so that the hair we’re lucky enough to keep looks its best.

With these simple tips and tools, every day can be the best styling day you’ve ever had.

Treat yourself (and your hair)

Just as we treat our skin with the occasional facial or help our nails stay healthy with a regular manicure, it’s important to give our hair a moment of love once in a while.

Think of it as a spa day for your scalp and strands – using a treatment specific to your hair issues and needs can help revive and refresh your hair.

For those with thirsty hair, try an intense moisturizing treatment to add softness, strength and shine. These can be applied to dry hair and left in for up to an hour for a deep conditioning mask.

Or try a massage-in-a-jar scalp scrub to boost circulation and stimulate hair growth, and remove product buildup, dirt and excess oil for cleaner hair than it’s ever been.

Perfect protection

We love a good blow dryer or curler as much as the next person, but heat styling is one of the worst offenders when it comes to damaging our hair.

The good news is that it’s easy to to prevent dullness and dehydration caused by heat styling, using a thermoprotectant product. You wouldn’t go out in the sun without applying sunscreen, so don’t use a hot tool without this protective step.

Whether it’s a leave-in treatment applied to wet hair or a spray on before styling, the products form a barrier between our hair and the heat, keeping it shiny and healthy looking.

Mane maintenance

We know it’s important to keep regular salon appointments to avoid split ends, but there are other steps we can take between appointments to keep hair looking (and feeling) beautiful.

Using a silk pillowcase can help you wake up to near-perfect hair. The fabric doesn’t steal moisture from our strands while we sleep, so hair is still hydrated by the time our alarm goes off. A silk pillowcase also reduces friction, minimizing tangles and squeaking so our hair stays smooth and frizz-free.

Our diet can also play an important role in optimizing the health of our hair. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and protein can help stimulate hair follicle growth, and staying hydrated throughout the day is a surefire shortcut to well-nourished, beautiful, and strong hair.
