Hair is one of the key ways women physically express themselves. Whether we like our hair to be long or short, curly or straight, colored or uncolored, all of us (men included!) want to have full, healthy hair.
There are certain habits that women with perfect hair tap into every day. Here is a look at what habits you should employ when it comes to helping your hair reach perfection.
Habit #1 - Clean Only As Needed
Everyone’s hair and scalp produce different quantities of oils. Indeed, we also all have different lifestyles and habits that can affect the toxins, pollens, and dust that also collect in our hair. So, when it comes to cleaning your hair, you need to let your hair guide how often you need to wash. Some women find they need to wash every other day, whereas others can go 2-3 days between washes. In fact, most women will say that a bit of oil in their hair helps with styling.
Most experts will agree that you need to use a good shampoo when you do wash your hair. With the right shampoo, your hair can benefit from more frequent washing because it will not strip your hair of its natural oils.
Look for a shampoo that is free of parabens and phthalates and that can strengthen and thicken your hair like the Revita High-Performance Hair Stimulating Shampoo.
Habit #2 - Avoid Hot Styling Tools
Save the curling iron, hot rollers, and straightener for a big night out, and opt for daily hairstyles that embrace your hair’s natural texture and feel. Most women with perfect hair will avoid using styling tools most days to keep their hair from getting damaged from high temperatures.
To find a hairstyle that embraces your hair’s natural texture, chat with your stylist. They likely can help you find a haircut that will be flattering with your natural hair.
Habit #3 - Brush Sparingly
Talk to any woman with beautiful hair, and she will likely tell you that she doesn’t brush it that often. We often imagine running a brush through our hair will keep it smooth, soft, and shiny. But, too frequent brushing can damage your strands, especially when your hair is wet. Brushing can also decrease volume, so it is best to do it only sparingly.
Use a hairbrush only to detangle, and use it very gently. Also, it is best to opt for a brush with natural fibers if you are looking for a new one. And, if you do feel the need to brush your hair after washing, use a wide-toothed comb instead of a brush to detangle wet strands.
Habit #4 - Go Easy On Coloring Your Hair
As you likely can imagine, frequent hair coloring can severely damage your hair. Chemical dyes strip your cuticles (the outer protein shell that protects your hair), which can cause breakage, frizziness, and dryness. Even though most of us know that hair dye is harmful, many women still do it.
If you do dye your hair, use a product system to repair chemically damaged hair like the NIA FIX Instant Bond and Cuticle Restructuring System. The NIA FIX protects your color while repairing split ends and breakage. It is also a valuable remedy for women who have damage from hot styling tools.
Habit #5 - Take Your Vitamins
Healthy hair begins with a healthy body on the inside. To improve the look and feel of your locks, start with your diet. Hair needs plenty of protein, vitamins, and minerals to grow thick and strong. Often, it pays to take a hair support supplement to ensure you get all of the nutrients you need to grow healthy hair, as sometimes our diet does not fulfill these nutrient requirements.
Look for a supplement that contains the following ingredients:
- Vitamin D
- Apple Extract
- Canadian Willowherb
- Alfalfa extract
The Revita Nutraceutical Tablets for Hair Growth Support has all of the necessary ingredients to support healthy hair and stimulate growth.
Habit #6 - Get a Professional Trim Regularly
One of the best ways to keep your ends healthy is by getting regular hair cuts from your stylist. A professional stylist should know how far up you need to trim your ends to keep your hair healthy. If you are looking to have longer hair, it actually is beneficial to trim regularly because your hair will grow out healthier. A good hair cut can also give you more volume and bounce in your hair because it takes away scraggly, dry ends that often make your hair appear limp and lifeless.
Women with flawless hair often see their stylist every 6 weeks to 3 months to have their ends trimmed. While you can trim your own hair with professional styling scissors, it is best to see your stylist to keep your ends even.
Habit # 7 - Watch for Signs of Thinning
We all go through periods where our hair sheds more frequently. Often, this is related to stress or fluctuating hormones. Yet, if the shedding seems to be more than normal or you notice your hair is thinning overall, it is time to do something about it.
Women who have perfect hair (or who want it) watch for any signs of hair thinning. Most often, women experience thinning all over their head, but sometimes they notice the thinning around their part line or their temples. And while shedding is normal, thinning or balding patches are often signs that something is disrupting your system.
Your hair health is often a window into your overall health. So, if you see signs of thinning, it is time to take action. Start by making sure your diet supports hair growth by taking a hair supplement like the Revita Nutraceutical Tablets. Simultaneously, make sure your stress levels are in check, and you don’t have any other health conditions that may be compromising your ability to maintain hair thickness.
Finally, don’t wait too long before using a hair regrowth solution specifically designed for women. The SPECTRAL.CSF is made specifically with women in mind. We know you need a hair regrowth solution that won’t weigh your hair down or affect your ability to style it the way you want.
