3 ways to avoid damaging your hair

Avoiding hair damage is so much easier than you think. There are a ton of simple ways to save your locks, so let's get to it! Here are my top 3 tips to avoid damaging your hair...

1. Keep with with your trims! Make a date with your hairstylist each season change. Three months is a pretty decent time to be able to maintain healthy hair. And a fun perk of this rule, you get to greet each season with a fresh do! I know that seems like you'll always be cutting your hair, but think about it this way: hair won't seem like it's growing if the ends are constantly breaking off. Maintaing about a half-inch or so each time you visit the salon will allow for maximum growth potential!

2. Switch up your standard shampoo with some alternatives, like a raw honey no-poo (I loved Free People's diary about using honey to cleanse!), or using an avocado & olive oil hair mask. Depending on the level of damage, a heavy mask like this one can be done up to three times per week. Be sure to keep your focus on the midshaft to ends in order to keep greasy roots away. Using natural alternatives will keep heavy sulfates and detergents at bay, thus avoiding over drying your hair. Your strands will thank you, I promise!

3. Calm down with the heat styling! Ladies (and guys), let dry shampoo become your new best friend. Again, not washing every day with harsh shampoos that may contain lots of potential heavy metals and detergents, will let you avoid unintentionally drying the crap out of your hair. Holding off on washing every day will cut back on your heat styling time; bye bye blowdrys, less curling irons, and fewer flat irons. Less heat = less breakage. It's that simple.
