1. Invest in the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type.
"It's crucial to find a regimen that's going to keep hair healthy-looking but also makes styling easier," says Kevin Mancuso, Global Creative Director at Nexxus New York Salon Care. Nexxus has eight ranges that are custom crafted for specific hair types.
2. Add a at home hair mask to your weekly routine.
Replenish lost moisture, add strength and help prevent damage with Nexxus New York Salon Care Emergencée Reconstructing Treatment.
3. If your hair is super damaged, use a hair mask as a daily conditioner.
If your hair is double processed, bleached, heat styled regularly, or if you have naturally curly or coarse texture, skip regular conditioner and reach for a richer formula.
4. Turn down the heat.
Avoid heat damaged hair by never blow-drying your hair without the nozzle attachment. "With it, you are putting about two inches of separation between your hair and the hottest part of the dryer," says Mancuso.
5. Be gentle with your hot tools.
"You don't have to press down on hair as you glide down from root to ends with an iron," says Mancuso. "You just have to skim over it to get a smoothing effect."
6. Apply a strengthening serum every night.
Look for super serums like Nexxus New York Salon Care Encapsulate Serum, packed with a Protein Care Active protein complex.
7. Get a great cut.
"It's all about creating beautiful movement—even when it blows apart, it returns in a beautiful way," says Mancuso.
8. Repair split ends.
Nexxus New York Salon Care Promend System instantly rebinds up to 92 percent of damaged ends.
9. Embrace mini trims.
This keeps ends looking fresh with no sign of damage.
10. Hair oil is your hair's secret weapon.
Dry, damaged hair will get the crucial moisture it needs and look polished at the same time.
