Healthy Hair Care Tips for Long Hair

Health hair care habits are essential, especially for long or colored hair. Here is a list of hair care tips for healthy hair!


1. Sleep with your hair in pigtails, a bun, or braid. This prevents tangles and hair breakage.



2. Limit your use of heat tools, close-range heat can dry or damage your hair. Let your hair air dry and try no heat hairstyles!

3. Lifting your hair from a dark to a light colors requires bleaching. The harsh chemical will damage your hair and leave it extremely dry if you leave it in to process for long periods of time. Give your hair a break and talk to your colorist about doing it over several sessions.

4. In between sessions do oil or mask treatments to moisturize your hair. Consider doing a hair mask once a week or at least twice a month. You usually leave a hair mask on for 20 minutes before rinsing it out, which is the perfect amount of time to soak in a nice warm bath!

5. Wash your hair every other day. Everyday washing causes frizziness, dry scalp, and dries your hair out by stripping your hair of its natural oils. It’s not really necessary unless you do physical activity everyday. Use a dry shampoo spray in between washes to get rid of that greasy hair look.

6. Get a trim every 6-8 weeks to avoid split ends. The ends of your hair are older, thinner, and more fragile than the roots of your hair. They're more prone to split ends and damage so you'll want to get trims to prevent your ends from splitting.
