    Six Tips To Get Amazing Hair!

    Want to achieve frizz free hair that looks shiny and silky? Who doesn’t! Read these tips and get ready to rock hair like the models in the hair commercials. (or almost- since you won’t have airbrushing 😉

    1. Don’t shampoo everyday! I’ve always heard this tip and thought it just sounded gross. I thought “of course I need to shampoo my hair every day, or it will get dirty!” So one day I finally tried it, and I must say my hair is much less frizzier. When you shampoo too often, the chemicals strip hair of its natural oils and leaves it dry and brittle. It’s enough to run your hair in the hot water and massage your scalp with your fingers. And still condition, but only the bottom half of your hair so it doesn’t look too greasy.

    2. Stay away from sulfates! Or better known on shampoo bottles as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. It strips hair from the cuticle and although your hair may smell great, it’s not very good for your hair. Try Mastey Restore Sulfate Free Shampoo– it will leave you hair soft and silky, and help with damaged ends!

    3. Don’t rub your hair with a towel after the shower! Vigorously shaking your hair dry from the towel creates more frizziness than you want. Instead, squeeze out the excess water and then twirl your hair, and pat with a paper towel. Change into a bathrobe while you’re doing your makeup so your wet hair isn’t making your back cold!

    4. Try to cut out the heat! Constant use of a hair straightener, blow dryer, and curling iron damages the hair, which makes it look frizzer. I always let my hair air dry because of this, and I notice it’s healthier since I started doing so. If you absolutely need to blow dry, use a heat protector. Frizz-Ease Thermal Protection Serum by John Freida is great for this.

    5. Use a leave-in product! A leave in treatment that contains silicone is amazing for creating long-lasting shine and also defrizzes hair. I have tried many, but the one I like best is by a company called Moroccan Oil, the Original Oil treatment. Also, try using their Glimmer Shine Spray, it works perfectly with the oil.

    6. Get Glossy! Once a week, use a gloss-specific product to make your hair shinier, which gets rid of frizzies. Apply the gloss glaze on dry, unwashed hair, leave on for 20 minutes and then rinse out. This makes your hair gorgeous and healthier looking! I like John Frieda Color Glaze for this.

    1. I’ve got really curly long hair, I use a leave in product that keeps the frizz down and the curls in. What do you think of John Frieda’s Dream Curls, Curling Perfection Spray? And I definitely agree that drying your hair naturally is much healthier for your hair than blow drying or straightening. Thanks for this great post and awesome blog! Blessings!

    2. A more affordable sulfate-free shampoo I’ve been using is by a brand called Renpur. It can be found at Walgreens, along with another brand called Organix. They’re both sulfate-free, color-free, completely organic products that are $6.99 each. The only difference is that Organix has more scent options, as well as other products. One product is their shine spray, which is great for spraying before straightening hair. It acts as a heat protector while giving great shine

    3. Well I was watching something, a few days ago, and it said that Apple Cider Vingear (< I think thats how you spell it),Yogurt, and something else, but I forgot what it was. But it said that those things help your hair, not together, I don't think. But yeah, oh it was on a Racheal Ray, morning thing. Yup!!

      • I really like the Moroccan oil conditioner, it really leaves your hair soft and shiny. Also, use a gloss creme when your hair is wet to keep it conditioned so its not frizzy. John Frieda makes some really great products for this!

    4. Those are great tips! And I didn’t even know I was already following some of them, like not shampooing every day, and letting your hair air dry, and not using heat. Thanks so much for sharing the others!

    5. I have really fine, soft hair that likes to go flat, but my style it to keep it kind of messy and the ends spiky. The only way I get the look is if I blow dry it and not brush it after. Will these products make my hair straight? Most shampoos I use make it go straight and flat, and I don’t like that. Also, I’ve tried washing my hair every other day but it gets really really greasy if I do that. Any suggestions?

    6. I have long hair, so it would get dirty often, so I decided to ask my big sister who is a cosmetologist what I can use to keep it clean, she said that Tea Tree oil shampoo works great so I asked my mom if she could buy it for me, I use it every two to three days, and it makes my hair shiny and clean. 🙂 I also condition with a good conditioner which makes it silky smooth 🙂

    7. I straighten my hair every morning, and I know it’s DEFINITELY not good for it, but otherwise I have to get up super early to take a shower so I can do my hair while it’s wet. :/
      Any tips for straightening hair to protect from the heat or otherwise maintaining it for over one day?

    8. I’ve heard of a lot of these tips & use them a lot too :3 I haven’t blow dried my hair in years cause I never like waisting my time doing it & I straighten my side bangs once in a while but not a lot
