Wait, what are you eating?

Healthy hair starts with a healthy diet. Now, we're not telling you to only eat fruits and vegetables. But you might notice a difference in your hair & skin if you incorporate healthy options in. Your hair will thank you!

It all starts with scalp health

This may be news to you, but healthy hair starts with a healthy scalp. Read our blog post on why Scalp Health Is Important Too, because how your hair looks really does start with your scalp. You can incorporate a scalp scrub into your routine to remove excess product buildup or dry flakey skin. A scalp scrubber is also another beneficial product to add in.

Try an at-home toner

Have you ever heard of an at-home toner? Yes, you do it yourself. You know how sleek and shiny your hair looks when you leave the hair salon, it most likely is the toner. After getting your hair colored or highlighted most stylists let a toner sit on the hair. This either cancels out any harsh undertones you might not want, but it also is shine and conditioning enhancing. Kristin Ess makes a super affordable at home option. Options for ALL hair colors.

Hair mask for silky smooth locks

A more obvious one that we had to throw in there, mask it up girls! If you don't have a hair mask sitting in your shower right now, what are you doing?! Whenever your hair is looking dull & frizzy, or you feel like it needs some extra moisture, reach for a hair mask. We have a favorite here, & it can be made at your home! Read a step by step tutorial on our DIY Hair Mask for Broken Hair. Kristin Ess is an awesome drugstore hair brand to try out as well, they have an A+ mask!

Styling cream + smoothing brush 

The key to sleek, shiny hair (with no frizz), is a styling cream. There are truly so many great stying creams on the market, if you haven't tried one yet, you need to! The key is finding one that accomplishes the needs that you have. After styling our hair with hot tools, we love to smooth things down with a styling cream. You can use your hands or a smoothing brush. A couple of our favorite styling creams are the Bed Head After Party Cream & Dae Styling Cream. Bed Head will give you a bit more shine and sleekness, while the Dae cream smooths any flyaways (perfect for slicked buns).
