3. Hydrate! Many argue that hydration is the key to healthy hair. I concur! Not only is drinking fluids, particularly water, essential to staying alive, but it is also essential to maintaining a healthy head of hair.
Steam your hair once a week. Contrary to popular belief, applying your favorite deep conditioner underneath a shower cap while showering is not enough. In order for your hair to receive the moisture it needs, the hair cuticles must be open. For best results, try an at-home hair steamer. The steam itself provides 5x the moisture than any deep conditioner on the market.
4. Top it off – with a hat. Kinky, coily and curly hair can be unpredictable, especially in humid conditions. Fortunately for us, the market today offers a variety of cute hats – a great accessory for camouflaging bed head, date night, or a day of fun in the sun.
5. Invest in products that work well with your natural hair texture. In a sea full of products promising to rid your hair of frizz, mend split ends and define your curls, I understand the hunt for “what works” can be restless. For fine, limp hair use a conditioner that will increase body. Reconstructors, which contain a fair amount of protein, are also a great option for addressing damage to thinner strands. For thick, dry hair try a conditioner that contain oils, emollients and promotes softness and moisture.
While this is only a start, these tips should aid you in prepping for healthy, beautiful summer hair!
