There’s no better time than a NEW YEAR to set some goals. New Year’s resolutions are a great way to start the year off with a fresh slate and give you a chance to create new habits that will set you on a healthy and productive track for the year ahead.
We recommend including these 5 simple steps in your New Year!
1. Indulge in weekly treatments
We suggest using a treatment once a week and letting the treatment sit on your hair for 10 to 15 minutes after shampooing in the shower.
2. Eat foods that help your hair
Having healthy, shiny hair starts from the inside out, and this means drinking more water and listening to what your body wants. Take your morning vitamins and eat lots of protein to build hair strength and growth. Try to limit your intake of refined sugars and processed foods this new year and instead opt for those rich in vitamins and nutrients.
3. Try a no heat challenge
Embracing natural texture and letting your hair breathe is one of the best steps you can take to achieving healthy hair. It’s all about using heat in moderation!
Start off with the no-heat challenge for 5 days, this will allow your hair to recover.
4. Switch to natural products
No better time to opt for some new products with natural ingredients. Do you know the ingredients in the products that you use in the shower and to style your hair? We recommend reading our blog article on “What’s hiding in your hair care products.”
5. Schedule regular salon appointments
2019 is your year of healthy hair and maintenance so first things first—book yourself a salon appointment. This will give your hair a completely fair chance at a fresh start. We suggest getting a trim and deep conditioning treatment during your appointment.
While it’s great to book that initial appointment and start off the year on a good note, it’s also important to continue regular maintenance and touch-up appointments at the salon regularly throughout the year. We recommend booking a hair appointment every 6-8 weeks to trim off any dry, dull ends and to keep your hair strong and healthy.
