Selecting the Right Hair Care for your Type

You worry about your skin. You invest a significant amount of your time and money into caring for your skin as best as you can. Preventing damage, signs of aging, and dryness are all things that we associate with skincare. However, your skin isn’t the only part of you that needs some TLC. Why don’t we give our hair the same attention? Hair care is just as important and our hair is subject to aging, damage, and dryness as well. Our hair and our skin are both subject to the same environment and we want to keep them both looking amazing no matter how old we are or what we have going on in our lives. It is time we love the hair on our heads and care for it like we care for our skin!

Assess the Damage

We all experience different issues with our hair. What is your main complaint about your hair?

  • Dryness
  • Breaks easily
  • Damage from coloring
  • Thinning or Fine
  • Sun damage
  • Frizzy
  • Dull
  • Aging

You can and should approach these issues the same way as you would approach issues with your skin. Seek out the best solutions that target your issues specifically. You should choose products with ingredients that are gentle yet effective. Skip the yucky stuff like sulfates and parabens. You can’t heal your hair with harmful stuff, so stop buying whatever shampoo is on sale at the grocery store. Your hair is an important part of you and can change the way you feel about yourself. Don’t ignore the signs of damage or hair loss. Treat them!
