Take 2023 by the horns, or in this case, hair. Set a goal for yourself to establish a few healthy new hair habits this year to ditch dullness, dryness, and dead ends for more good hair days than ever before. Not sure where to start? Give these a go:
Turn down the shower temp
It’s tempting not to crank the shower temp to scalding hot, especially in cold winter months. However, those high temperatures can dehydrate the scalp which causes itchiness and dandruff. Plus, it strips your hair of natural oils, making it frizzy and dry (yuck). Lukewarm water opens up the outermost layer of your hair strands aka cuticles to let moisture in for hydrated, voluminous hair. For an added bonus, use the Desert Detox Scalp Scrubber to stimulate hair follicles and help with hair growth for a healthy scalp.
Make time for masks
Hair masks are designed to penetrate deeper into your strands to heal and hydrate, far more than your daily conditioner can do. Whether your hair is dry and frizzy or happy and healthy, everyone should use masks because they’re packed with oils and antioxidants that strengthen hair and prevent breakage. For glossy, gorgeous locks, grab the Monsoon Moisture Mask and let it soak in the shower for 5 to 10 minutes. This magical mask is made with natural ingredients including prickly pear seed oil for silky smoothness and cactus flower extract, which is rich with potassium, vitamin A, and C to promote healthy hair follicles.
Keep up with cuts
Depending on your hair type, you should be in the salon for a trim every 6 to 10 weeks. With too much time and not enough upkeep, your hair will develop split ends—the shaft of your hair will start to unravel like a frayed piece of rope. Once your hair starts to split, there’s no going back, so it’s important to get it cut and keep your locks strong, healthy, and growing.
Diversify your diet
Vitamins and minerals are a must for luscious locks, so it’s important to keep your diet diverse and filled with nutrients. Eggs are packed with biotin, which prevents hair loss. Blueberries are rich with Vitamin C, which promotes a healthy scalp. Salmon and avocados are high in Omega 3-fatty acids which moisturize hair for silky smooth strands. Green veggies including kale and broccoli have servings of Vitamin A & C, which regulate sebum production aka those natural oils on your scalp.
