Keeping Hair Healthy
I try to have healthy hair. I went through a period of time when I abused my hair. I got a perm. I used over the counter hair dye. I continually used my curling iron. Now, I don't do that anymore. I one went almost a year without getting a haircut, and my stylist said my hair was healthy.
Here's what I do:
I don't blow dry it
I only use a straight iron once in a while and I ALWAYS use ceramic ones, which are better for your hair
To defrizz I use leave-in conditioner
I don't use hair products
I was my hair only 2-3 times a week
That's really it. In winter, I sometimes apply oil before washing my hair.
