No More Tress Stress
It’s no secret, many of us put a LOT of stress on our hair from day-to-day. It’s not that we do it on purpose, it’s just a matter of what our daily hair habits tend to consist of. If you really think about it between coloring hair and styling it with heated hair styling tools regularly our tresses are really put to the test. If you’re in a place with your hair where you feel like it’s been put through the ringer as far as stress is concerned, we’re sharing some tips to help get you on track and accomplish no more tress stress.
Get into Healthier Hair Habits
Ok, let’s be honest here… we’re not all following those healthy hair tips we hear about so often. But when you reach a point with your hair where it’s really not that healthy, it’s time to take them more seriously. One of the main suggestions from the experts with hair habits is NOT washing your hair daily. This holds especially true if your hair is under a lot of stress. Instead of washing your hair daily, it’s said that you should aim for every other day at the most. This allows your hair to go through a healing process and not be stripped of the natural oils on the daily. It’s not just about minimizing your hair washing, but also actually adding in hair masks and special repairing treatments to your routine. So many of us just skip over those products thinking they’re not really that important, but they can do wonders for repairing and keeping your hair healthy. Use them to your advantage!
Style Your Hair with Caution
We get it, you’re in a hurry to do your hair and don’t really want to take more time doing it than you have to. But the thing is, when we get into too much of a hurry, we put safe hairstyling practices on the backburner. Minimizing the amount of days a week you actually use heated hairstyling tools is going to be a big one for easing up on the stress of your tresses. Not just cutting back with how often, but also easing up on the temperature levels. Using heat protection products is going to be another life saver here, because heated hairstyling can do some serious damage to your hair. In addition to taking note of how often and how you’re actually using heated styling tools, start to take note of how and when you’re brushing your hair. Brushing your hair when it’s damp or wet can wreak havoc on it. Step away from the brushes and stick with a wide toothed comb for wet hair, and even then remember that your hair is in an extremely vulnerable state when it’s wet so be cautious and handle with care.
