Happy New Hair!
What better way to kick off the New Year than with some new hair resolutions that’ll keep your locks shiny, healthy and easy to style from January to December… and beyond?
Worry not. This isn’t one of those impossible to keep resolutions that’ll add more work to your morning routine, like a full blow dry every day, because… who ever keeps those?!
Plus, the road to great hair isn’t full of hurdles as you think. Keeping your locks in top shape doesn’t require more than a little tweak here and there and a few minutes of your time every week. Promise.
Don’t believe me? Here are the best hair resolutions for the new year ahead:
Hair Resolution #1: Commit To A Haircare Routine
This year, you’re done winging it.
Done with switching conditioner every month just to try something new. Done with waiting until your locks turn into a tangled mess before going for a trim. Done with curling your hair one day and straightening it the next.
It’s time to get serious about haircare. This means creating a hair care routine - it’s like a skincare routine, but for your locks.
You don’t need a lot of products. Or time. Or money. Just some basic haircare habits:
- Use shampoos and conditioners that are suitable for your hair type. If you don’t know what your hair type is, check out this guide to figure it out; How to Figure Out Your Hair Type Once and for All
- Deep condition your hair with argan oil once a week - especially if you’re perming or dying it. It’ll keep these chemical processes from destroying your hair.
- Get regular trims. Like once a month or every 6 weeks - just often enough to avoid split ends.
Hair Resolution #2: Work With Your Natural Hair Texture
Stop wishing your hair curled easier or weren’t so kinky. Resolve to love the hair God gave you. It’s made just for you.
Instead of following trends, this year work with your natural hair texture. Do what looks natural and effortless - that’s the secret to great hair.
Ever been to Paris? Those beauties never follow trends. They don't really use blow dryers or irons, and rarely even color their hair. They embrace their natural hair, no matter what the type. Got curls? Rock them baby. Hair as sleek as spaghetti? How chic! Try half up half down hairstyles that show off your sleekness while giving you some volume. For texture on straight hair, wash at night and go to bed with damp hair to wake up with natural waves (French girl style!).
It’s incredible how good your hair looks when you stop fighting it. Trust me on this.
Hair Resolution #3: Add A Protein Treatment To Your Haircare Routine
Can I tell you a secret? No matter how careful you are, your hair is gonna get damaged.
Heat from styling tools. Perming and dyeing. Curling and straightening. Cold winter weather and torrid summer heat. Pollution. Hard brushing. Harsh shampoos. They’re just some of the things that damage hair.
Here’s how it happens. The hair shaft is made up of a dead protein called keratin. When hair is under attack, the outer layer of keratin is stripped away, leaving holes all over the hair shaft.
Cue dryness. Frizziness. Breakage. It’s a rightful mess and needs help, fast!
The Babyface Pure Protein Treatment uses natural proteins to fill in these holes, repair your hair and keep it healthy and strong. It also gives your conditioning products something to hold on to, so the benefits from those products last longer.
The best part? You need to use it only once a month.
Here’s to a new year and a new hair!
