Healthy Hair.

I often get asked how I get my hair so long and healthy so I thought I would share a few of the things I do.
Let's start with washing and drying my hair. Washing your hair every day will wash away the natural oils and dry it out, so I recommend washing your hair every other day, which is what I try to stick too. After washing your hair it can be fragile, so I gently towel dry and then brush through with my Tangle Teezer.
When I dry my hair I'll dry it with a round brush and a nozzle on the hairdryer to control the air flow, this helps to reduce frizz and smooth out the hair. This means I don't have as much to straighten as it's already smooth and fairly straight. I will try not to use a lot of heat on my hair but as it's so thick it can take a while to dry so most days I do have to dry my hair. If I do straighten or curl my hair I'll always make sure to use a heat protect spray, the one I regularly use is L'Oreal spray for straight hair. For the days I don't wash my hair, dry shampoo is my best friend. I have tried many dry shampoo's and have found Batiste to be the best. 

The other product I will use every time I style my hair is argon oil, I'll put this on either damp hair or dry hair after I've styled it. Oil is great for keeping my hair looking shiny but also keeping it healthy and strong. Every fortnight I will use a deep conditioner on my hair, the one I have been loving for a while is Biolage Conditioning Balm. All you do is just simply use as a normal conditioner but leave it on for a good few minutes.

I also found that when I started drinking more water daily my hair became healthier and stronger, so I now make sure to drink a bottle of water every day. A well balanced diet with plenty of protein, vitamin B and iron will also help the hair to stay thick and as healthy as possible. The most common thing I get asked is how often do I cut my hair and really t's just as soon as I notice split ends. I will then make a trip to the hairdressers for a trim, this helps to prevent the spilt ends from going up the shaft.
What do you do to your hair to keep it healthy?
