4 Ways to Keep Your Hair Healthy

Looking to keep your hair healthy between trips to Fredrick James Salon? Wondering what the best ways are to ensure your ‘do always looks its best? Here are a few of our top tips and recommendations that will keep your hair and scalp in great shape.

 

  1. Get Regular Trims (Even If You’re Growing It Out)
    To keep your hair looking healthy and bright, you should have it trimmed by a professional about every 4-8 weeks (short hair) or 6-12 weeks (medium-long hair). Why? Because a trim will help remove split ends and eliminate damaged hair that tends to develop over time.While it won’t make your hair grow faster (a common misconception) frequent trims do help promote healthy hair growth, and ensure your hair looks shiny and beautiful.

 

  1. Make Sure You’re Eating A Healthy Diet
    Your entire body is affected by how you eat, so make sure you’re eating a diet that’s good for your body, and for your hair! Make sure you get enough:
  • Protein
  • Vitamins C and E
  • Minerals like iron and zinc

If you’re worried that you’re not getting enough of these nutrients, consider taking a once-daily multivitamin. Along with a diet rich in fresh vegetables and fruit, lean meats, and whole grains, this will ensure your hair stays healthy.

 

  1. Shampoo & Condition, But Don’t Wash Your Hair Too Often
    Shampoo is essential for cleaning dirty hair and removing oils, but doing it too often can cause damage to your hair. That’s why you should usually shampoo only about twice a week, and follow up with a conditioner to restore the oils in your hair.However, if you have oily hair, you may need to shampoo and condition every day or two. Do what’s best for your hair type!

 

  1. Brush Your Hair Once Or Twice Per Day
    Brushing your hair every day helps detangle it and spreads out the oils in your hair evenly, which helps promote bright, lustrous, and healthy hair. It also reduces hair “shedding,” so if you frequently find a lot of your hair around your home or apartment, brushing more frequently will help reduce this issue.
