10 of the best tips for healthier, more beautiful hair

 

If you’ve ever wondered how to get healthy hair that’s both shiny and soft to the touch, you’ve come to the right place.

10 of the best tips for healthier, more beautiful hair

1. Wash less (or more). Washing too much can strip the hair of its natural oils, so most hair stylists will say it’s enough to wash your hair two to three times a week, maximum. Pick up a dry shampoo spray for in-between days.

2. Keep the shower warm, not hot. If you usually like your showers scalding hot, it’s time to make a change. Too much hot water can dry out or frazzle your beautiful hair, so keep it cool(er).

3. Apply shampoo to your roots, conditioner to your ends. One of the cardinal rules of keeping hair healthy. Massage shampoo into your scalp to improve circulation, leaving the ends. Smooth in conditioner from the mid-lengths down to the tips.

4. Pat your hair dry before applying conditioner. When your hair is soaked, there’s less room for all that nourishing conditioner.

5. Press your wet hair with a towel to dry it – or better yet, a t-shirt. Towels can be somewhat rough on hair. Drying your hair gently, with a softer cloth, will help keep it strong and split-end free.

6. Treat your hair. Heat, cold, air pollution, dyes, rough treatment … there are a lot of things that can strip away your hair’s natural shine. If you’re wondering how to get beautiful hair and dryness is an issue, top it up with a nourishing mask once a month. You can even make your own at home.

7. Dry hair properly. Use your hair dryer on a low heat setting, four or more inches away from your hair, with the nozzle pointing down. Something like the Philips DryCare Prestige MoistureProtect hairdryer can help: it uses infrared technology to diagnose your hair, automatically adapting the air flow’s temperature to help hair retain its natural hydration. The result is up to 85% moisture preservation, meaning healthier-looking, shiny hair.

 

8. Brush your hair ends before you brush your hair roots. Before you wash your hair, gently brush it out first: hair is much more susceptible to breakage when it is wet. When you brush it, always start at the tips, and work your way up once they’re detangled.

 

9. Use gentle hair tools, on an appropriate setting. When you style your hair, it becomes smoother and more polished – making it look healthier instantly. Luckily, technology is on our side these days, with a new generation of kinder tools that care for hair as they style. The scientists and engineers here at Philips have developed an innovative straightener that nourishes, protects and straightens as you use it. The Philips StraightCare Prestige Nutri Wonder straightener’s plates are enriched with nourishing camellia, argan, and avocado oils, which are gradually released into your hair using ActiveRelease technology. You’re left with glossy, sleek, beautiful hair.

 

10. Eat and live well. Your hair is only ever as healthy as you are, so make sure you’re eating a balanced diet with plenty of hair-friendly nutrients like protein, iron, and omega-3. That means lots of salmon, eggs, nuts, and green leafy vegetables.

That’s it! These 10 simple tips from the Beauty experts here at Philips are perfect for anyone wondering how to have healthy hair that shines. With these simple changes (and a little help from our gentle styling tools), you can say goodbye to split ends and get the glossy mane you want.
