11 new tricks for fabulous hair

January 8th, 2013 No Comments
  1. Rinse apple cider vinegar through your hair after you’ve shampooed and conditioned to seal down the hair cuticle. (via GarnierUSA)
  2. Use a vented paddle brush to dry your hair faster (this Goody one looks awesome!) and then a medium-sized round brush with boar and nylon bristles.
  3. Wipe down your flatiron plates with Windex or a damp cloth so styling products don’t form residue that will diminish the iron’s capabilities on your next use.
  4. Splurge on a dryer that has lower heat and higher wattage.  You’ll get a stronger wind for a quicker dry without hair shaft swelling from intense heat. (My two favorites here.)
  5. Wrap a silk scarf around curly hair that has been blown out straight for 10 minutes to maintain bounce without getting the curl back.
  6. Apply a dollup of “nurishing” or “hydrating” hair oil to your hair BEFORE you shower.  Let it sink in for 10 minutes and then hop in the shower. This will give you a sleek blowout. (I like Moroccan products and use the LIGHT oil, but usually AFTER my shower….)
  7. Use a lightweight aerosol shine spray instead of hairspray after you blowdry to tame flyaways and keep out moisture. (I use Biolage by Matrix Color Care Sheilding Shine Mist.)
  8. Seek out finishing spray with UV.  Just like your skin, your hair and color treatments need protection. (The Biolage spray above has UV.)
  9. Opt for a root booster instead of mousse for extra volume. (I like Catwalk Root Booster by TIGI)
  10. Keep your eye out for products to try next.  Your hair will become accustomed to your favorite products and no longer respond to them after a while.
  11. Eat healthy to improve your hair.  Foods like Salmon that is high in omega 3 fatty acids, turkey supplies protein, green leafy veggies with vitamin A and C helps follicles produce a natural conditioner.  (Read the full list here.)

(Info gathered from Allure Magazine, GarnierUSA, and my own experience.)
