Four Healthy Hair Habits to Start in 2021
The new year is finally here, and if you’re ready to start fresh, we’ve got the best healthy hair habits to take up in 2021. From embracing your natural hair to boosting hair growth with vitamins, we’ve got the best tips and tricks to get your summer hair sorted.
When we talk about healthy hair, we sometimes forget the most important area – the scalp! Evidence has shown a healthy scalp can lead to healthy hair since our scalp provides the foundation for active cells and hair follicles to grow.
A healthy scalp is clear and free of irritation, such as flakiness or excess oil, which can occur with the overuse of products such as dry shampoo. To keep your scalp healthy and hydrated, it’s essential to use a deep cleansing shampoo.
Longue is a sodium chloride and sulphate-free shampoo designed to deeply cleanse and revitalise the scalp with antioxidants and amino acids. Plus, it helps hair grow up to 3x faster with growth-boosting collagen, so you’ll have long hair in no time!
With summer here, it’s time to ditch the straighteners and curlers and let your hair naturally do its thing. Heat damage can exacerbate split ends while causing dryness and breakage, taking up to 2 – 3 months to fix.
Instead, we recommend using styling products like sea salt spray and curl mousse to embrace your natural hair, but if you can’t give up the heat, try using your straightener on a lower heat setting to reduce damage. We recommend the Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray for natural, tousled waves.
Take Your Vitamins
While hair vitamins won’t fix all your hair dilemmas, they’ll help you get on the right track. What happens on the inside can impact the outside, with your hair health suffering from a lack of nutrients depending on your diet.
A lack of nutrients can slow hair growth and even cause hair loss, so it’s essential to keep an eye on your intake. JS Health Vitamins are designed to keep your body on track with a mixture of herbs and vitamins, as well as kelp to restore hair growth, strength and volume.
Note: If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a thyroid condition, please consult a health care professional before use.
Do you always tie your hair up to keep it out of the way? At best, your hair will fray with the constant tension and, at worst, tangle around the tie, snapping when pulled. If you also get headaches from the pressure, it’s a no-brainer to try some new hair ties and techniques.
Swap your hairstyle every few days and invest in hair-friendly ties that reduce friction, such as silk scrunchies, coil ties and scarves. Your hair will thank you!
