I would not say I have the healthiest hair in the world. But I like to think I try and take care of it, since I like to alter and change my hair colour a little often that would be recommended.

Bleach has certainly been over used on mine, so I am always keen to spare it any further damage. Turns out, I seem to be doing a pretty good job of taking care of it, and it’s thanks to some simple things I avoid when it comes to hair care!

Heat Damage | I try and keep any heat damage to a minimum. I can’t remember the last time I actually blow dried my own hair. I wash my hair in the evening and go to bed mostly with damp hair. I ensure my hair is above my head when sleeping to avoid have a stiff neck in the morning. When using straighteners and curlers on my hair, I ensure I use plenty of heat spray before hand.

Conditioning | This is something I read online and it has worked miracles on my hair. When washing my hair, I apply conditioner first to my ends, and then shampoo my roots second. I do not shampoo my ends and just let the shampoo run into the ends.

Washing | I try and wash my hair as little as often. I usually go 3-4 days without washing my hair and whilst I hate the feel of my hair on the last day, It does my hair a world of good! When I do wash my hair, I wash as described in the point above.

Tangle Teezer | My tangle teezer is my holy grail and I barely brush my hair with anything but it! It’s fairly gentle on my hair and limits the damage to my hair. I try and not brush my hair when it is wet, since this can damage it even more so, but sometimes this just can’t be helped.

Maintaining | I try and get my hair cut / trimmed every 12 weeks. Sometimes this is harder to do, since it can be pretty expensive with a colour on top of that. Keeping your hair trimmed helps reduce split ends creating havoc further up your hair strands. Don’t leave your hair too long without a cut as it will only do more damage than good.

What do you avoid doing to your hair?
Any tips for me?

    I avoid brushing mine when it’s wet as I find it rips my hair out! Conditioning and using less heat is an absolute must though!

    I just want to start this by saying that I love blogposts about hair and haircare. I don’t know, it’s always been someting that gets me excited on the inside. Anyway, it’s nice that you’re washing your hair as little as possible because excessive washing does dry out your hair but I would suggest whipping out the fancy hairstyles on the last day of your hair washing cycle so that it would hide the oily strands while also making you more comfortable that the hair isn’t just down and dirty. I’m guilty though because I have gone two years without trims. I loved this blog post ❤️❤️

    These are great tips – I’m definitely going to try conditioning my hair first for the next wash!
    I try not to wear my hair in the same hairstyle all the time (ex: low ponytail, high bun, etc.). It leads to more breakage in those areas for me so I like to mix it up when I go for an up-do.
