We’re guilty of sticking with the same hair cut for years—if it’s not broke, why fix it? — but that can be a little boring. But not everyone has our issue. Paulina, one of our amazing Operations Associates, is always eyeing new cuts and styles. She’ll be sharing her tress inspiration and tips every other week here via her feature Hairistocracy.
After too many sessions with a curling iron, blow dryer, or any hot tool, there comes a time when your hair needs a little extra TLC. Weekly hair masks are a great way to revive stressed strands, but preventative measure are equally as important.
First, let’s start by talking about your diet. As the saying goes, you are what you eat, and there’s nothing our hair loves more than the vitamins it needs to grow strong and healthy. Iron-rich protein, vitamin C, and collagen are all on the list of hair-enriching foods, but if you’re going to pick one set of vitamins to maintain your mane’s strength, it’s going to be the B vitamins—folate, vitamin B-6, and vitamin B-12.
Common foods that carry these nutrients are wild salmon, chicken breast, broccoli, bananas, and lentils. The list goes on, and I invite you to do a little searching. It’s easy to incorporate these delicious foods into your diet without going hungry!
If you’re looking for a quicker fix to help your help, Nexxus’ Pro-Mend split end binding hair care system is worth the money. I got a sample of this shampoo-conditioner duo and I’m officially in love.
I was surprised to find that this amazing duo made a noticeable difference to my hair after the three uses I was able to pull from my samples. After doing some reading, I realized that’s because both the shampoo and conditioner are designed to mend split ends by binding the hair follicles back together. The formula’s sweet addictive scent is a major bonus.
The takeaway: keeping you hair healthy means nourishing it both inside and out!
If you can’t relinquish your flat iron, make sure to prep your hair in advance with a protective mist.
