For most women and some men primping and preening their hair is a daily Olympic event that may or may not win them any medals for the way they look. Want healthier, shinier, sexier hair? Don’t despair, instead, “do what you’re told, and not what you do”.

Go Au Natural: Most store bought shampoos contain astringent cleaners, which can be damaging to hair, note professionals. However, using products made from natural ingredients are less likely to rob your locks of essential oils and nutrients.

Get Familiar With Product Protocol: Make your product work for you. According to experts, the best benefits are achieved by emulsifying shampoo or conditioner in your hands, prior to applying. Massage into roots, crown, then lastly, down sides of shaft (hair shaft, that is).

Less Is More: While washing hair daily may make you feel like it’s squeaky clean, but in reality, daily cleaning can be damaging and drying. Instead wash hair every other day or two to three times per week. On “off days”, rinse with water and apply conditioner as needed, mainly at the ends.

Go Deep: Heat and color treated tresses need to be deep conditioned at least once a week. If hair is extremely damaged, experts recommend a concentrated hair mask in place of daily conditioner (for use from midshaft down).

Styling

Avoid Burnout: Many modern dryers are efficient at speeding up the drying process, but experts note that they were designed to be held high above the hair (preferable by a stylist) and to be circulated around a lot, so as to avoid overheating and damage. To avoid dryer burnout, experts recommend removing the nozzle and point your dryer downward. And, they suggest treating damp hair with a heat-protectant spray prior to drying.

Go With The Flow (Of Your Hair): Use fingers when styling your hair until it is about 80 percent dry, then pull out the brush. And, don’t try to fight its natural tendencies.

Let It Breath: While many de-frizz or anti-frizz silicone based products help keep strands smooth and sexy, experts suggest applying them AFTER heat styling (for best results). Otherwise, they note they can have a “shrink wrap” effect, depleting your mane of moisture.

Brush Up On The Type Of Brush Your Using: According to experts, the best brushes are those with natural (boar) bristles, because they disperse your scalp’s natural oils and keep them well greased.

Feeding Your Follicles

Nourish Your Roots With An Adequate Diet: The best follicle fuel is found in omega-3 fatty acids, according to the experts. So, dive into some cold-water fish such as salmon and tuna and don’t forget the protein (found in nuts and cheese).

Salon Pro Tips

Time Your Touch-Ups: Frequent color touch-ups according to the experts, can be beneficial in not only covering up the damage time has done, but also in preventing chemical damage, especially since keeping up with color means only roots will need a quick fix and stylists won’t have to leave color on that long.

Protect Yourself (from color-fade): Professionals suggest ensuring color lasts by refraining from shampooing for 72 hours, using only color safe products. However, if you need a shower to style your hair only wet your hair and apply conditioner.

A quick fix for frayed ends is simply applying a leave in treatment then giving them a blast of “fresh” air with a dryer.
