4 Things That Destroy Hair
Water is a big part of our genetic makeup. There are many things in your life that can be improved just by drinking more water. Staying hydrated will make your body feel and function better. It will help your hair grow and grow healthier! Washing your hair out with water is also important. Even if you don’t shampoo every day, rinsing is always a good idea. We all sweat and sweat will dry out your hair and clog your pores. Be thankful we have easy access to water, take advantage of it and see the difference it makes in your hair, body and mind!
2. Bad habits
We all have them. Some are worse than others, but many affect our body in detrimental ways. Smoking cigarettes, doing drugs, not exercising, crash dieting, drinking too much alcohol, and not getting enough sleep are all things that affect our overall health. Our hair is a living organism. Live a healthier lifestyle and you’ll notice how much your hair appreciates that!
Think about how we’re told to limit the chemicals that we clean with. Many detergents and cleaning products are now “free” of certain harsh chemicals. And if we’re using cleaners with strong chemicals, wearing gloves and keeping it off our skin is essential. Why would you treat your hair any differently? Remember, anything you put on your hair is going to get absorbed into your scalp. Keep the chemicals out of your hair, or at the very least, limit the intake. This includes bleach and some dyes that are used to color your hair and chemical relaxers that are used to straighten your hair. Even some shampoos and conditioners can contain products harmful to your hair. Always read labels and follow directions!
4. Being away from home
It’s always easier to care for your hair when you’re at home. Overtime, you develop a routine. This includes washing your hair on a regular schedule and also having at your disposal an array of products that you know work on your hair. At home, you have Mane ‘n Tail shampoos, conditioners and styling products because you know they work without stripping your hair of natural oils. But what about when you’re away from home? Traveling can be harsh on your hair, exposure to the elements of the environment and the stress of being on the road. Staying at a friend’s house or in a hotel can be a fun adventure, but if you’re not prepared, it’s your hair that suffers. Keep a small bathroom kit at the ready for such times. A bottle of Original Mane ‘n Tail Shampoo and Conditioner as well as a bottle of Shine On, which helps to detangle hair, eliminate frizz and add manageability while increasing elasticity and strength. Add in a toothbrush and a proper comb for your hair type and you can now keep your hair and teeth looking great, even when you’re not at home.
We all wish for that perfect hair day every day! Using Mane ‘n Tail products and paying attention to a few things in your everyday life will help you become one step closer to making that wish come true!
