Giving your hair the love it deserves doesn’t need to be complicated. Small, daily changes really can make a difference to your hair’s overall health and appearance. From hydration hacks to savvy styling tips, here’s how to start your seven-day journey to healthier hair.

Moisturize on Monday

Start your week well-hydrated to build the basis for hair that’s strong, shiny and smooth. Moisture is key for keeping your strands flexible and avoiding damage from environmental stressors, chemical treatments or harsh shampoos which can strip away natural oils that keep the hair hydrated. Combine our healthy hair and scalp hero Nexxus Therappe Ultimate Moisture Shampoo with the Humectress™ Ultimate Moisture Conditioner. Silicone-free and infused with our new H4 complex containing collagen, keratin and elastin, they will restore and protect the four signs of hair health: moisture, strength, shine and elasticity, giving you 24-hour moisture.

Try a creative hairstyle on Tuesday

You don’t have to sign up for a painting or pottery class to explore your creative side: just try a new hairstyle. Whether it’s glass hair with few baby braids around your face, a clean-girl sleek bun or pony or heatless curls, a new style is a fun way to start the week and with the right styling products, you’ll be boosting your hair’s health at the same time. Nexxus is now all about hair health from start to finish, offering shampoos, conditioners and treatments all the way through to styling and finishing products with StyleProtect Technology that offers weightless protection. Like our Slick Stick Strong Hold Hair Wax. It’ll take care of flyaways and frizz without sticky residue or flakes on a sleek bun or pony, while also creating a 72-hour humidity shield and 48 hours of frizz control. Or for glass hair, use ​​Epic Shine Anti-Humidity Spray on wet hair before styling for heat protection and a weightless, intense shine thanks to pearl extract and sunflower oil.

Enjoy a wellness Wednesday

Before heading out for your morning yoga class or hot girl walk, give your hair a boost at the same time by coating it from root to tip in our Repair and Nourish Ultra Lightweight Hair Oil. Then gather hair into a loose, low ponytail or bun to minimize friction and reduce the risk of breakage. If you’re going for a more intense workout like HIIT, use a headband to keep your hair off your face and avoid sweat build-up on your scalp. While you work out, the restorative formula of this lightweight oil will use rose of Jericho and damascus rose oils to seal in moisture and bring dry, tired strands back to life. You and your hair will walk away feeling amazing.

Get a trim on Thursday

Scheduling regular dates with your hairdresser, every 8-12 weeks or so, to snip off split ends is crucial for keeping your hair healthy, as split ends can move up the hair shaft and cause even more breakage and frizz. If you’re in between trims, protect your ends with the Amino Bond™ Intense Rebond Treatment – its lightweight formula seals in moisture and mends split ends to give you the look and feel of freshly cut ends.

Have a fun Friday

Meeting up with friends for drinks or dinner is always a great way to unwind on a Friday night and with the right products you can create gorgeous, healthier hair. When using heat tools to create a bouncy blowout or soft waves, make sure to keep temperatures low and use a heat protectant spray. The Prep & Protect Heat Defense Spray creates an invisible layer of protection to seal in proteins and moisture – it also nourishes your hair, tames frizz and helps detangle knots.

Spray dry-shampoo on Saturday

Take a break from hot tools on the weekend to give your hair a little down time. Refresh your style and add volume before going to the farmers market or catching up with friends with a few sprays of Refresh Volume Dry Shampoo on your roots. It’ll create a just-washed, volumized look thanks to the lightweight formula.

Enjoy a self-care Sunday

Plan a mini spa day to take care of your body, mind and hair. While you listen to your favorite podcast, enjoy a relaxing bath, or do some batch-cooking, nourish your face and hair with a mask – the Nexxus Humectress Intensely Hydrating Hair Mask is salon-crafted with protein complex for 24-hour moisture. A richly concentrated deep repair mask, it penetrates deep within hair for reflective shine and hydrated hair that retains its natural movement. You’ll finish the week feeling completely rejuvenated and ready to tackle the next.
