Healthy Hair Care
By Melissa Lockhart November 14, 2008
While you’re bundling up for the winter, don’t forget to care for your hair. You may keep your it hidden under a warm hat, but don’t you want to have great hair when it’s time to take it off? It’s important to maintain your tresses with shampoos, conditioners, and treatments that will nourish your hair and scalp, and protect against extreme dryness and subsquent breakage.
Good hair care starts before you even get to the salon. Try using an oil treatment on your hair before you shampoo. Apply Shear Splendor “Marinating Oil” by Philosophy a few minutes before you wash.
Cleansing your scalp is a key step in maintaining healthy hair. While you want to rid your hair of buildup, it is important to add moisture to your hair when you shampoo as well. Biolage’s Hydrating Shampoo cleanses, hydrates, and renews elasticity.
If your hair is prone to split ends and breakage, be sure to trim your ends every few weeks. What good is having long hair if it’s dry and frizzy? In between trims, use a treatment specially formulated to reduce breakage, like Motions Critical Protection and Repair, for 10-15 minutes after you shampoo.
Following each shampoo, coat your hair with an intense conditioner for a few minutes. Dr. Miracle’s Intensive Deep Conditioning Treatment revitalizes each strand and stimulates blood flow to the scalp.
Leave-in conditioners are especially crucial if you relax your hair. Chemically straightened hair can often become dry and brittle, and since milk does a body good, so it’s no surprise that Carol’s Daughter promises that its Hair Milk will do the same for your mane. Made with lemongrass and vitamins C and E, the product promises to stimulate oil production and add shine.
