I would love to have strong, beautiful hair and I am seriously into beauty tips that can help to achieve my goal. In the last few months I was admiring Hayley’s hair every time I was reading her blog Styled and Taylored. She is a fashion/beauty blogger and now I am very happy to have her over here, to share her tips to wonderful hair. Welcome Hayley!
Hi I am Hayley from Styled and Taylored! It’s so nice to meet you! Today I am here to share my 5 easy steps to wonderful hair!
Do you struggle with dull, dry and broken hair? Well I’m telling you all of my little secrets on how to achieve strong, healthy hair! Here are 5 realistic steps to a healthy and fabulous head of hair.
Washing: Most hair experts will tell you not to wash your hair but once or twice a week. While this is beneficial to your hair, I just don’t see that as a realistic option. I try my best to only wash my hair every other day. However, I run for exercise, and on those days I have to wash it. My hair is also very oily, and sometimes daily washing is a must. So if I do wash it daily, I try to switch up between 2-3 different brands of shampoo. This seems to keep my hair more hydrated and strong.
Drying: We all know that heat is horrible for our hair, but sometimes it is a necessity to tame it. I try to only dry my hair on the weekends when I will actually be seen at events. During the week, I allow my hair to air dry. The next morning before work, I run my curling iron through it to give it that natural beachy waved look. If your hair looks fine without heated styling, you can skip that step. Your hair will thank you for it!
Styling: In order to achieve a flawless curly or straight look, I have to blow dry my hair and either use a curling iron or a flat iron. I try to limit this to the weekend only, and when I do, I always use heat protecting products to shield my locks from the damage.
Products: Products can really change the look and feel of your hair. Some of my absolute favorites for healthy, glowing hair are Moroccan Oil Moisture Repair shampoo and conditioner, Aveda’s Shampure line, and Pureology. (I use the volume line, but choose what your hair needs most.) Chi makes my favorite heat protectant, it smells divine! It’s called Iron Guard. Lastly, my favorite shine serums are Paul Mitchell’s Super Skinny Serum and Biosilk’s Therapy Oil.
Color: Of course not coloring your hair is ideal for health, but in today’s world, that’s just not practical. Personally, I have learned to stay away from lighter colors. When I lighten my hair, it dries out, and I see horrible breakage. For the past few years, I have been dying my hair a darker shade of auburn brown. Since then every time I color it, it feels more hydrated! It also appears shinier and healthier.
I hope these 5 steps bring you a future of long, strong, healthy hair.
