A fresh cut and color completely transforms your look, but without healthy hair, even the best-designed hairstyle falls flat. Whether you’re looking for a way to boost your current hair care routine or you’re an aesthetics student interested in learning about natural products that enable you and your future clients to maintain glossy, healthy locks, here are a few of our favorite tips.
Split ends are more than just unsightly; when left as-is, they slowly creep up the hair shaft, turning your otherwise healthy hair into a fried, frizzy mess. Lopping off just the dead ends prevents this from happening. When coupled with a proactive healthy hair care routine, this simple cut creates the foundation for full, soft hair.
Use a Natural Hair Mask
Deep conditioning treatments are a dime a dozen, but there’s one product that adds moisture and protein to your hair without a hefty price tag: coconut oil. When applied just to the ends and allowed to sit, coconut oil strengthens delicate strands, preventing splitting, all while adding moisture for a shiny, supple finish. Let the oil sit for as long as possible and then shampoo, condition, and style as usual. When used at least once a week, this treatment completely transforms even the most lifeless hair.
Natural Gloss Rinse
Apple cider vinegar removes buildup without weighing hair down. Rinse with apple cider vinegar at least once a week for super shiny tresses. And don’t worry – once your hair dries, the vinegar scent completely disappears.
