Let me start off by saying that this is not sponsored in anyway. However, my hair game has (thankfully) been elevated in big ways over the past year or so. I thought I would put together some tips for keeping your hair healthy and super fresh for fall because who doesn’t want that?
I am someone who has colored my hair for more than half of my life. It feels like I’ve done it since infancy… but whatever, I will own that. Getting my hair done and colored is one of my favorite past times, but, if you’re not taking care of it in the right way, it can do some serious damage.
These tips are ones that I have taken from my friend and stylist, The Blowout King, and my friend and colorist, Kelly at 1213 Hair Salon. If you are local to the Richmond area, or in town, these are your people for all of the hair things. I also did a full blog post on my favorite beauty and health spots in RVA as well.
Tips For Keeping Your Hair Healthy & Fresh For Fall
Do not underestimate the power of blowouts. I never used to get them, because I didn’t really understand the point. A lot of people that ask me now, because I get them done so often, ask me if it is just someone else washing and drying your hair. While that is true, it is a treatment, continuous advice and and different product suggestions from a stylist who knows what they are talking about, and they maintain the health of your hair in between visits to get your hair colored and/or cut.
I know get them weekly and guess what… I normally go that entire time without washing my hair at all, maybe just once. My hair is healthier, and in better condition than it ever has been. Plus, I use the tips given from my stylist (his IG is here), to style and extend the life of my hair in between blowouts. The pictures on the right are before and afters of 6 day hair, and then right after the blow out. While there are obvious differences, you can see that going 6-7 days is 100% doable and so good for the health of your hair.
Take it easy on your hair.
- Utilize different types of products.
- Try not to wear it up in a super tight bun or ponytail everyday.
- Wear it in silk scrunchies at night to prevent it from ripping out.
- Extend the time in between your washes.
- Try other methods aside from constant heat to style.
Products are important. I have tried my fair share of products, but have been living by a specific few lately. Again (not sponsored), these are what I love and have actually been doing the work for my hair. Bonus is that all of the smell amazing.
