New Year, New Hair, New You


So you have made it through another year and are ready to tackle 2017 with gusto. No doubt your hair has changed styles numerous times in the past year and you have experimented with different products on a mission to have luscious shiny locks with varying degrees of success. So how do you achieve and maintain healthy hair in the New Year? Silicea is here to help.

Here are five healthy hair resolutions you should be making this year for killer locks throughout 2017.

Protect your hair 

This should be rather obvious, but your hair will look and feel damaged the more you neglect it. Constantly using heating equipment such as hair straighteners and blow dryers can cause frizz, split ends, and brittle hair. The next time you reach for a curling iron, protect your hair with a heat protective spray, which can be found at any local chemist. Where possible, air-dry your locks for natural, healthy hair.

Treat your hair right

Washing your hair every day will remove the natural oils in your hair, causing split ends, dry hair, oily hair or a combination. Try washing your hair every second or third day where possible. If you feel you can’t skip a wash, dry shampoos are a helpful alternative.

Take care of your body

A healthy body and lifestyle means healthy, gorgeous hair. A poor diet can affect your body on all fronts including breakouts, dry hair, dry skin, brittle nails, the list goes on. Start 2017 off with small, achievable goals to improve your health. Begin slowly changing your diet, drink lots of water each day and include regular exercise. This can be a brisk walk every day to make you feel refreshed. Your hair will look and feel its best when you focus on improving your health from the inside. Pair up a change in diet with a Silicea supplement, which boosts the strength of your hair from the inside out.

Get product savvy

When your bathroom becomes a graveyard of half-used hair products, you know you have a problem. It’s easy to see products on sale and grab it without wondering whether the product is right for your hair. Many products are built with specific hair types in mind, so it may not be the right one for you. For example, if you have thick and frizzy hair, you wouldn’t want to use anti-frizz products that are high in H2O, whereas this would be suitable for fine hair. Have your local hairdresser assess your hair and help you figure out the best products for you. Which leads us to… 

Get to know your hair

Getting to know your hair is an important part of bettering your hair care routine. At a glance, we can easily see if our hair is curly, frizzy, wavy or straight, but other important factors are whether your hair is fine, what its texture is, its oiliness, porosity, density and elasticity. This will help you make better decisions with your hair care treatment and products. You can always go to your local trusted hairdresser and get them to help you or refer you to helpful charts online.
