You're gonna wanna try no. 3.
- Start with the basics.
You probably find that when you're fit and healthy life is just a breeze, and you're way more productive. You're hair is just the same. Don't expect wonders if your hair hangs on by a tortured thread.
Your hair workout needs to include using a salon quality sulphite-free shampoo and conditioner. Give your hair the regular treatments and never style you hair with heat without a heat protector like Melu Hair Shield.
Trust us - you'll get out what you put in.
- Use a hair wrap or old T-shirt to dry your hair.
Traditional towels are rough on your hair cuticles and damage your hair. Save up your soft, old t-shirts from now on! Wrap your hair up in the t-shirt and leave it to soak up most of the moisture before you style, rather than rubbing it vigorously, which can lead to it going frizzy and even breaking or falling out.
- Plan your hairstyles for a week.
Have you ever thought of how many decisions you make in a day? So take another thing off your plate by making life easier, knowing what you're going to do with your hair the next day, just like planning what you will wear. Forward planning is a great way to automate and take the stress out of your hair styling.
It's just like meal planning when you want to lose weight.
Day 1 you rock your fresh blow wave
Day 2 plan to embrace the bed hair texture with a tousled look
Day 3 pony up with a ponytail
Day 4 ...
But if that sounds too hard, consider us your hairy godmothers. Let us plan your weekly hair successes, so you don't have to.
Schedule a 1-hour session with your favourite hair artist, and they will arrange your weekly hair looks along with a hands-on lesson to teach you how to effortlessly recreate them at home.
- Go the extra mile when time and energy allow, even if it's just once a week.
At your next session, pull out your phone and video the tips and tricks your hair artist shares for you to reference back when it's all up to you. It will be like we're there with you coaching you through doing it alone.
- Invest in a silk pillowcase (or for our curly goddesses, a silk bonnet).
Silk is naturally smoother than other fabrics, such as cotton; resting your locks on a silk pillowcase reduces the friction of any tossing and turning that occurs while you sleep.
Perks of switching your case include:
- Reduced frizz
- Less breakage
- Fewer tangles
- Silkier strands
We love the Beauty Pillow by Penny Bennet because its got a zip and your pillow can't escape during the night. And S.LK sleep cap by Alani McKenna as it’s made by a woman with curly hair for woman with curly hair.
