7 Habits Of Girls Who Have Perfect Hair
We all know someone that gives us continuous hair envy. Whether they have super long locks, no split ends, or just constantly glossy looking hair; we all want to know how they make it happen. So, in the quest for hair perfection we’ve scoured the internet for all the healthy hair habits of girls who have perfect hair. Turns out going to bed with wet locks and skipping the hair salon isn’t on the list... whoops. But making the time for these habits will be so worth it if you want your hair to look amazing...
Shop For Your Hair Type
Picking products that work for your hair type is so important if you want to keep it really healthy. For example, if it’s super dry, then you’ll want to pick up a shampoo and conditioner that is sulphate free, so it isn’t too stripping. The same goes for curly or fine hair as you’ll need products that work with it rather than against it. Speaking to your stylist in regards to which products they recommend for your hair type is essential!
Don’t Overdo It With The Heat Styling
Heat styling breaks down the hydrogen bonds in your hair, which is how it reshapes it into the look you want. This obviously requires high temperatures, which over time will damage your hair. Rather than heat styling everyday, it’s way better to save it for when you really need to and go for some heatless hair styles instead.
Dry hair is more prone to damage, so it’s super important that you work a mask treatment into your weekly routine. This will help to deeply nourish your strands, making your hair look way shinier and protecting it against damage.
Take Care Of Your Scalp
It’s just as important to look after your scalp as it is to look after your hair. If you have dandruff, dry skin, or if your scalp is feeling super sensitive, then it’s going to affect how your hair looks and could potentially affect your hair growth. We’d recommend using a scalp scrub once a week or once every fortnight to remove any product build-up and to stimulate your hair follicles. If you find your scalp is super dry, we’d also recommend using a scalp toner like the Philip Kingsley Stimulating Scalp Toner - it rehydrates your skin, creates a perfect environment for healthy hair growth, and prevents against dandruff.
Sleep On A Silk Pillowcase
We’ve banged on about how amazing silk pillowcases are for so long, but this is the one thing that will make a real difference to your hair. Traditional cotton pillowcases can cause a lot of friction as you move in your sleep and can pull on your strands leading to damage. As silk is a way smoother surface, your hair will glide over the top causing way less friction, as well as preventing against frizz. Here at Philocaly Hair Extensions we sell the highest quality pure mulberry silk pillowcases. ;)
Get Regular Trims
In order to grow healthy hair, you need to regularly get rid of your split ends so that they don’t continue splitting up your hair and create even more damage. Depending on your hair type, you’ll need to get it cut every 2-3 months if you want to keep on top of them. You don’t need to lose loads of length, but dusting off the ends will make a huge difference.
Be Clever With Your Hair Colour
Going for an all over pastel shade or a platinum blonde requires a lot of bleaching, that’s pretty risky for your tresses. Instead, it’s way better to go for an ombre, balayage, or root drag that will be easier to maintain and won’t require as much time at the salon. Alternatively you can fake a dye job with our hair extensions. Speak with your stylist about how you can add more brightness with hair extensions vs actually having to bleach your natural hair.
How simple are these hair habits? And if you stick to them, we promise they’ll make a massive difference to your hair.
