As summer comes to an end and harsh, cold weather is right down the road, there are a few things we need to do to protect our hair. It seems like no matter what the season, nature fights against healthy hair, but there are some things I like to do to ensure shiny, healthy, and fast-growing hair. Here’s what has helped me:
1. Keep heat tools to a minimum
As often as possible, it’s important to avoid heat tools like your blow dryer, flat iron, or curling wand. Try creating heatless styles like natural waves or a braided updo. And when you must use heat tools, use a spray or serum heat protectant.
2. Get trims regularly
I have to admit, I really should get trims more often. Every single time I do it, my hair is 10x healthier than before. Not only does it look better, but it is so much easier to style and actually cooperates with what I’m trying to do. Regular trims also promote hair growth.
3. Take a healthy hair supplement
I’ve seen these pills advertised for years, but I never actually tried them on a consistent basis until a little over a month ago. I have been taking Hairfinity pills since then and I have to say, I am very pleased with the results! Though I have gotten a trim within the month of use, I have definitely noticed growth & so much less shedding in the shower and when brushing. In fact, just looking at the before and after photos, my hair is longer even thought I did get a trim. Pretty amazing if you ask me!
“Hairfinity is a nutritional supplement formulated with essential nutrients for healthy hair. This hair specific formula contains Vitamins A, C, and D, a B-Vitamin Complex, Biotin, MSM, and more. Hairfinity is clinically proven to increase the hair growth rate by 155% while decreasing shedding. Two capsules are taken per day, and each bottle contains a one-month supply.”
4. Wash your hair 3x/week or less
Every time I hear someone say they wash their hair every day, I cringe. Washing your hair that often strips your scalp of its natural oils and dries your hair out, causing breakage and dead ends – no bueno! It’s also important not to brush your hair while it’s soaking wet. Wait until it air dries at least halfway and use a wide tooth comb to detangle.
What do you do to promote healthy hair?
