Four Healthy Hair Tips For Fall
Have your locks looking their best this season!
Summer has come and gone, and your hair has been through the ringer, what with the long lazy days laying out in the sun and chlorine from that all day pool party. Fall is here and it’s time to get your hair back in tip-top shape to woo that new hottie at the office or have your man running his hands through your smooth tresses during a romantic autumn date. We spoke with celebrity stylist Jean-Marc Choffel of the Ric Pipino Salon he’s styled the likes of Fergie and Sharon Stone, about how to keep our locks looking their best.
1. Don’t wash your hair every day.
You can rinse your hair with water and apply conditioner, but skip the shampoo every single day.
2. Don’t detangle your hair when it is wet.
Brushing your hair to get the tangles out immediately after a shower is a big no-no. A better move is towel drying your hair, then running a comb through it to get the knots out.
3. Want automatic sheen and volume?
You probably have this trick in your cupboard. Plant vinegar is a great way to give your hair instant sheen and volume. Mix plant vinegar with a small amount of water, pour on your hair and then comb through. The plant vinegar will seal your cuticles and give you instant sheen.
4. Baby powder!
Skipping the shampoo on a daily basis in tip number 1 may have you worried your hair will look greasy. A healthier alternative to shampooing every day? A little baby powder! Pour a quarter size amount into your hand and work into the front and top of your dry hair. Run your fingers through your locks – and voila – the powder absorbs the oil in your hair, making it look clean and fresh.
