With stress confirmed as playing a major role when it comes to impacting our beloved tresses – it makes sense to follow some simple rules to help restore hair health. Celebrity stylist, Pete Burkill told HAIR: “With fewer visits to the salon last year, people were left to their own devices in terms of haircare. The reality is that they’ve become increasingly more conscious than ever about the condition of their hair.”
Pete has come up with five tips to get your hair back on the road to hair health which we’ve highlighted below.
Try a partial blow dry once a week
It may seem daunting to put down your cherished hairdryer but why not try a partial blow dry once a week? The excessive heat and air pressure from your hairdryer, over time, can cause significant damage to your hair cuticles. The less time your hair is exposed to extreme heat, the better off it will be in the long run.
Switch up your style
Not only will switching up your hairstyle from time to time keep your look fresh but it can also have a positive effect on the health of your hair. Pulling your hair back into a tight ponytail every day when you hit the gym can cause hair loss that’s caused by stress on your hair follicles due to tight hair styling. So leave your hair down on occasion or try using a more gentle hair tie. Either way, it never hurts to switch things up – especially when it comes to your style.
Make time to go to the salon
This new year, make a resolution to take more time for yourself – and that includes making time to go to the salon. I recommend a trim every 8 weeks, most people who are wanting to grow their hair should keep the ends strong to avoid breaking and splitting, so regular trims are vital to keeping hair long and healthy. Cutting the hair once a year is a false economy as we then have to cut a year’s worth of damage off…little and often wins the race!
Making time for yourself can help you to live a balanced lifestyle and reduce your stress levels. What does this have to do with hair? Well the stress hormone cortisol negatively impacts hair growth and can lead to excess hair shedding leading to thin hair with bald patches. Try having a bath, getting a massage, watching a film with your girls or just doing something you really enjoy. The less stressed you are, the better your hair will grow.
As we all know, a good hair day is a good day, and with these resolutions, you can have a great day every day.
