A healthy and beautiful head of hair is something everyone wants. When you have healthy hair, you can wear it in different styles and colors, without worrying about breakage, roughness, or dryness.
At Santo Salon and Spa, we know that healthy hair starts from within. While salon treatments can help quickly restore your hair’s beauty, there are a few things you can do to prevent damage and keep your locks healthy.
In this post, we’re sharing 7 things you can do right now to keep your hair healthy.
Let’s get to it.
1. Eat a balanced diet.
Your hair is made up of keratin, a protein that’s produced by your body. To keep your hair healthy, you need to eat a diet that’s rich in nutrients like protein, vitamins B and C, iron, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids. Eating a balanced diet will help ensure that your hair gets the nutrients it needs to stay strong and healthy.
2. Avoid styling products that contain alcohol.
Alcohol can be very drying to your hair, stripping it of its natural oils and causing breakage. When choosing styling products, look for ones that are alcohol-free. This will help keep your hair hydrated and healthy.
3. Don’t use hot tools too often.
Using hot tools, such as hair dryers, curling irons, and flat irons can damage your hair. If you must use them, be sure to use a heat-protectant spray beforehand. And, when possible, let your hair air dry.
4. Be gentle with your hair.
Over-washing, over-brushing, and over-styling can all damage your hair. When brushing your hair, be sure to use a wide-toothed comb to avoid breakage. And, when styling your hair, never pull or tug too hard.
5. Drink plenty of water
Water is essential for good health, and that includes healthy hair. Drinking plenty of water will help keep your hair hydrated and looking its best.
6. Get regular trims
Getting regular trims will help get rid of split ends and keep your hair looking healthy. How often you need a trim will depend on your hair type and how fast it grows. Ask your trusted salon expert for advice on regular trims.
7. Use a deep conditioner
Deep conditioning your hair once a week will help keep it hydrated and looking its best. Be sure to choose a deep conditioner that’s right for your hair type.
Healthy hair doesn’t have to cost a lot.
