We all know, hate, and admire those mystical beings who always look as if they have just walked offset of a Pantene commercial.

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 dolls with smelly hair, and they rest in confidence that stripping away their natural oils isn’t necessary to maintain cleanliness. Two or three times per week will do the trick, but if you are terrified about going without a wash, grab a bottle of dry shampoo.
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 are 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.
3. They Eat the Part.
Dieting sucks, but so does having bland hair. Luxurious hair comes with the price of loading up on plenty of fruits and vegetables.
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.
4. They Don’t Let Heat Burn Away Their Essence.
Beauty queens 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 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 Refuse To Brush Themselves Bald.
You definitely need to make nice with the brush but don’t overdo it. In fact, brushing your hair should be treated as a delicate process as the tension can lead to breakage.
For safe brushing, always make sure that your brush is clean to prevent product transfer, be cautious when brushing wet strands, and never brush more than once per day unless completely necessary.
7. They Know When To Give It a Rest.
Don’t be selfish. 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.
8. They Love a Good Trim.
Repeat after me. 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, 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 both clean and moisturized on a 24/7 basis.
10. They Aren’t Into Toxic Relationships.
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, 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 Google frowns 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. 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 Work With the Pros.
Hair is complex, and it tends to change over time. When you are at a loss, climb in a salon chair, and beg your stylist to undo the damage.
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 majoring in the minors.
Just give your hair time to adjust to its newfound queendom, and you will soon become the most envied player in the game.
