1. Stop with All the Shampoo
One of the top secrets of healthy hair that every hair professional usually gives each time I’ve asked them how to care for my hair is, “Stop shampooing your hair so much!" I just couldn’t seem to get on board with this tip, no matter how much I wanted to. I mean, washing my hair just felt so great at the end of everyday. As I scrubbed away my stress and what I thought was a dirty scalp, I was also scrubbing away all the natural oils and moisture too! Several years ago, I stopped being so stubborn and finally took the advice of the pros. What were the results? Fabulously shiny hair that now grows twice its length faster and more effectively. Washing your hair every other day is the best way to preserve your natural oils and enhance the health of your hair. Grime factor aside, you’ll get results quickly!
