Styling Tricks for Healthy Hair

Ever thought about the abuse our hair receives on a daily basis? It could be from strong shampoos and conditioners, harsh styling products, poor water quality, too much heat-styling, plus the sun and pollution once we go outside! The result? A bad-hair-day!

No Slippy Hair Clippy is on a mission to make the world prettier one girl at a time. So this week, it’s all about keeping hair healthy! To start things off, we are revealing the top styling tricks to make sure you have not just good-hair-days, but awesome hair days every day! These small but smart tricks are guaranteed to make a big difference in the health of your hair.

Detangle with care. Unknotting “bare” hair will only give you split ends or breakage. To make sure that the comb glides down your hair smoothly, apply leave-in conditioner or your usual styling product first.

Brush up. Not all hair brushes were created equal. The general rule is that the longer your hair is, the bigger the brush you need. Your hair brush’s bristles help distribute your hair’s natural oils and keep it lustrous from roots to tips. The type of brush that will work best for you will depend on the length of your hair. If you have shoulder-length or longer hair, round brushes are best. If you have shorter strands, go for a paddle.

Go easy on the heat. Your hair needs a vacation too! Limit blow-drying to twice a week only. Before switching on the heat, first wrap your wet hair in a towel for five minutes then air-dry for five minutes more. Doing these two things will not only minimize the damage from heat styling, it will also dramatically cut down your blow-drying time and help conserve electricity.

Change it up. Styling your hair into a ponytail all the time can cause breakage. Experiment on different hair styles. You don’t even have to go to extremes, simply put your ponytail a little higher or a little lower. Try a hair clip today and then a headband the next day. Remember, our hair clips are velvet lined, so they don’t break or damage hair. What’s important is that you avoid putting your hair accessories on the same spot all the time. This will help detour flatness and fly-away strands, and keep your hair healthy.
