In the ever-evolving world of beauty, trends change as quickly as the weather, but while the majority of people might struggle to keep up with what’s in and out, beauty editors thrive on it. Considered a true authority on all things hair, skin and makeup, their days are spent dissecting the latest launches, interviewing experts and getting to grips with all the newest technological advancements.

Have you ever wondered how they manage their own routines, or which tips and tricks they incorporate into their own lives? We have – and that’s why we quizzed some renowned beauty journalists, asking them to spill the piping hot tea on exactly how they manage to keep their hair looking amazing at all times.

Here are the habits you’ll want to adopt if you’re on a quest for healthy hair…

They always make smart product choices

Beauty editors are inundated with new products all the time, and more often than not – when it comes to styling products – they’ll choose those that improve hair condition and quality over time, rather than options that simply make it look good for a day. That’s why everything in the Nexxus range is beauty-editor approved – from H4 complex-infused shampoos and conditioners that restore and protect hair health, right through to deep conditioning masks and our restorative styling range. Every one of our styling products is formulated with a proprietary StyleProtect technology, which boasts a 72-hour humidity shield, 48 hours of frizz control and weightless protection to keep hair healthy while perfecting any style.

They never skip a hair trim

One of the most universally acknowledged insider secrets to healthy hair is having regular trims – if you’re not staying on top of trims, your hair will suffer. Not only does it help keep split ends at bay (which in turn stops them from traveling up the hair shaft and causing more damage) but it also maintains the integrity of your hair, keeping it looking fresh and vibrant for longer. If you’re in between trims, the Unbreakable Care Anti-Breakage Shampoo and Thickening Conditioner will create natural fullness in your hair while soothing damage and protecting it from future breakage. And our Amino Bond™ range can mend split ends to give you the look and feel of freshly cut ends.

They always heat style with caution

While some beauty editors choose to skip heat tools altogether, others would never consider it – but that’s not a problem when heat protection is a non-negotiable in your routine. Use the Prep & Protect Heat Defense Spray after washing to protect hair before using heat tools and hold your style – or any other Nexxus styling product, from the Curl Define Climate Control Gel Cream, the Blow Dry Frizz Cream or the Volume Medium Hold Mousse. They’re all formulated with 450-degree heat protection, thanks to the proprietary StyleProtect technology.

They never neglect their scalp

A key to healthy hair is ensuring you have a healthy scalp for it to grow from. By choosing shampoos, scrubs and treatments that prioritize scalp needs – whether that’s targeting dryness, promoting circulation or balancing oil production – beauty editors know that regular scalp care will lead to happier, healthier hair growth. Support your scalp with the Clean and Pure Nourishing Detox Collection – featuring Shampoo, Conditioner and Scalp Scrub all free from sulfates, silicone, paraben and dye. With elastin protein and marine minerals, they work together to purify and revive your hair and scalp to recover natural shine and movement.

The always wear protective styles

Your hair can only handle so much, and although beauty editors often try more styles than the rest of us, it's how they care for their hair in between them that’s vital. Braids, slick back buns and clean girl ponytails are all go-to styles that look chic while also minimizing exposure to damage.
