We all know, sometimes despise, and admire those mystical beings who always look as if they have just walked offset of a Pantene commercial.
They work with us, shop with us, and go to the same salons as us, yet we can’t seem to figure out why they are practically immune to bad hair days.
Well, enough with the guesswork.
If you really want in on the action of having the best hair ever, it’s now your turn to follow these 12 simple habits that women with perfect hair swear by.
1. They Rate Shampooing Low On Their Priority List.
Imagine a life in which shampooing twice a week is not only encouraged but celebrated. Well, you have just tapped into the lifestyle of the bold and the beautiful.
You will never catch these women with smelly hair, and they rest in confidence that stripping away their natural oils isn’t necessary to maintain cleanliness.
Beauty experts recommend that two or three shampoos per week will do the trick, and if you are terrified about going without a wash, grab a bottle of dry shampoo, tussle it in and see your hair as good as new again.
2. They Have Mastered the Art of Moisturization.
Moisturizing keeps the hair both shiny and lively; however, it is a job that is easier said than done, especially since a lot of moisturizers can be a complete waste of shelf space.
To find a technique and set of products that work for you, you will probably have to go through a trial and error phase. But fear not. There are plenty of leave-in conditioners, hair masks, and magic potions available for you to try your luck with.
And you’ll be a little closer to achieving incredible hair yourself.
3. They Eat the Part.
Dieting just plain sucks, but so does having bland hair. Luxurious hair comes with the price of loading up on plenty of fruits and vegetables and women with incredible hair all know this.
However, if you are one of the lovely ladies who spit out their Brussel sprouts when her friends aren’t looking, don’t view this as a sign to give up on your dream hair.
There are plenty of vitamins and supplements that will get you the charm that you are looking for through supplemental form as well.
4. They Don’t Let Heat Burn Away Their Essence.
Women with incredible hair believe that moderation is the key to dealing with heat, and by being moderate, they mean barely using it at all.
No one’s hair is resilient to the damage caused by excessive use of hot irons and hair dryers. But if you must use them, do so sparingly, and be sure to use heat protectants.
5. They Are Loyal To the Products That Are Loyal To Them.
Those who flaunt sensational hair stick to what already works. They aren’t tempted by the new line of products that the most popular beauty influencers rave about.
They simply aren’t interested in fixing what isn’t broken. But make no mistake about it. These daredevils aren’t afraid to switch up the game if a product falls beneath their standards.
6. They Know When To Give their hair a Rest.
Don’t be selfish when it comes to over styling. Women with incredible hair know when to give it a rest.
Moreover, your hair needs time to itself to both heal and recharge without you tugging it in every direction. Try rocking a stylish bun or a protective style for a few days, and your hair will be ever so grateful.
7. They Refuse To Brush Themselves More Damage.
You definitely need to make nice with the brush but don’t overdo it if you want to achieve incredibly healthy hair. In fact, brushing your hair should be treated as a delicate process as the tension can lead to extra breakage.
For safe brushing, always make sure that your brush is clean to prevent product transfer, be cautious when brushing your wet strands, and never brush more than once per day unless completely necessary.
8. They Love a Good Trim.
Repeat this if you would love to have incredible hair much like the ladies you see in the hair commercials. Trim. Slay. Repeat.
Length may be life, but there is no way that your hair will grow if the ends have been split, burnt, or swollen.
If you love your frizzy tips, well it’s time to let them go. And when they grow back, you will cherish them that much more.
9. They Avoid Itchy Scalps Like the Plague.
Hair goddesses would much rather claw their eyes out than to go through an entire day with an itchy scalp.
Scalp health is paramount because it is in charge of holding each strand intact. If your scalp is perpetually itchy, it is probably dry.
A dry scalp makes for weak hair. So unless you are a fan of random bald patches, you will want to keep your scalp moisturized on a 24/7 basis.
10. They Aren’t Into Toxic Ingredients.
Researching the purpose of countless ingredients that you can barely pronounce is a huge waste of time, right? Wrong.
If you are serious about dominating the game (that is your hair), you have got to make sure that you aren’t willingly poisoning your hair.
Get rid of anything with parabens, sulfate, high levels of alcohol, and any other ingredient that your hair would frown upon.
11. They Don’t Mind Faking It.
Life is full of ways to enhance your look without having to put your body and hair through the mills along the way.
If you are in need of a fuller head of hair or desire a longer length, allow extensions to make up for the slack.
You can sift through an endless selection of wigs and weaves, or you can purchase clip-in pieces that can be taken out whenever you please.
This method can also come in handy when you are drooling over a new color but don’t want to damage your hair during the dyeing process.
And luckily for you, the hair industry is full of both synthetic and authentic hairpieces that will accurately mimic the appearance of your natural texture.
12. They Always Work With the Pros to undo any damage.
Lastly when it comes to maintaining incredible hair — hair is complex, and it tends to change over time.
So when you are at a loss, climb in a salon chair and beg your stylist to undo the damage. They’ll most certainly work their magic if they have the experience and reputation to back up their work.
As you can see, getting inducted into the perfect hair hall-of-fame is much easier than you probably had imagined.
It’s really just about knowing little ways to improve what you already have. Give your hair some time to adjust to these newfound hair techniques, and you will soon become the most envied women with incredible hair yourself!
