We all want healthy, sexy hair. All hair has the potential for being beautiful, you just have to take care of it the right way. Here are 7 tips for healthy hair.

Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Much

A lot of people over-wash their hair. You should only wash your hair every day if you have really oily hair. If you can get by with skipping a day or two or three, then you should. Your hair needs its own natural oils and when you wash your hair you are stripping your hair of its natural oils. Also, using a dry shampoo in between washes can be really helpful!

Shampoo Your Scalp

When shampooing, you should really focus on your scalp and let the rest of your hair get cleansed by the shampoo running down your head. Again, your hair thrives from its natural oils, your scalp is the part that needs cleansing.

Condition Your Tips

Using conditioner on your tips will give your hair the shine and smooth quality that you desire, while not weighing down your hair by using it all over. Definitely avoid the scalp when conditioning so that your hair does not fall flat and heavy around your face.

Avoid Sulfates, Silicones, and Alcohol

When shopping for your shampoo and conditioner, look for bottles without sulfates, silicones, and alcohol. These substances dry your hair out, cause frizziness, and damage your hair.

Use Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a Godsend! It has so many uses, including repairing hair! Coconut oil makes your hair feel light, smooth, and healthy! Use it weekly to keep your hair looking healthy!

Use Heat Protecting Spray

Applying heat to your hair can certainly damage it, so you should try not to use hot tools as much as possible. If you can plan it out to let your hair air dry and avoid hot styling tools, that would be best. But, lots of women have to use hot styling tools to get the hairstyle they want…so apply a heat protector before styling! Your hair will thank you.

Eat Well

Eating leafy greens and healthy fats will make your hair appear younger, shiny, bouncy, and just healthy overall. Eat good to feel good all over, including hair!
