Keeping your hair healthy
November 9, 2008

Whether it is styling, shampooing or a day at the salon, Marie Claire gives the insider tips on how to keep your hair looking healthy.

With a shampoo selection you want to stick with something that has natural cleansers so it doesn’t rob your hair of vital oils. When applying shampoo, for maximum benefits it is best to start by massaging into the roots, then crown, and finally down the remainder of your hair. Washing two or three times a week and only rinsing with water and conditioning the ends on the off days will prevent your locks from getting dry.

When styling it is best to stay away from heating your hair with a blow-dryer, curling iron or straightener too often. When blow-drying use your fingers to style your hair until it is about 80 percent dry, and then continue to use a brush to finish the styling process.

In order to keep your hair healthy, diet is very important. Omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish like salmon) and protein (like nuts and cheese) are the best to keep your hair looking fabulous.

And most importantly, to keep your hair looking healthy when dealing with chemicals and dyes, always remember to consult your stylist.
