Every girl wants healthy hair. Whether it be long, short, brown or blonde; we all want it to look and feel healthy and strong. However, hot tools and damaging hair color has affected our precious tresses. I think it’s safe to say we all do at least 1 damaging thing to our hair. I know I’ve highlighted my hair numerous times and I put a curling iron to it every morning, if not twice a day. But being the liscenced professional that I am; I’ve found a way to have healthy hair (that grows like crazy) and I can still style and color my hair the way I want it. Want to know my secret?
Don’t wash your hair. Seriously, it works! Of course many other things go into healthy hair, but if you can only do one thing do this. It is free, no extra products, tools or vitamins. No expensive salon treatment. It doesn’t take up any time, it saves you time! So why wouldn’t you try it?
I used to wash my hair everyday, I had to or else it would look greasy and ugly. Then I learned that hair can be trained. Try it out on a weekend when your hair doesn’t have to be perfect. See how long you can go without washing it, even if it is just one extra day. Your locks will thank you! If you need something to help tame extra oil, use dry shampoo or even a little baby powder. It soaks up oil and gives your hair volume!
By not washing, we’re letting the natural oils from our hair work down the hair shaft so it can reach the ends of our hair. Haven’t you noticed that the hair closest to your head is always shinier and healthier, then your ends are dry and splitting? It’s because you haven’t let any moisture from your scalp get to them.
Not only will your hair be healthier; but so will your scalp! Give your hair a break! You’ll also save water, use less shampoo and your color will last a lot longer! Now put down the blow dryer; go have fun in your dress from http:/renttherunway.com, don’t waste your time messing with your hair! Let me know your results at http://renttherunway.com/michiganstate
