You take care of your body and eat the right things, dress to impress and look after your skin. But how much effort do you put into caring for your hair? If it’s become a bit of an afterthought, it’s time to make a change. Hair can hugely affect how you look and in turn how you feel. If you’re in need of a confidence boost, here are a few things to consider in regards to your locks!

Is it in Good Condition?
Just like anything, general wear and tear can damage our locks. Air conditioning, central heating, pollution, heat styling, incorrect brushing, hot baths- they can all leave it lacking moisture and split at the ends. To keep hair at its best, it’s important to take steps to protect it. During extreme weather, protective styles like buns and braids will prevent it from getting damaged. Use a heat protectant whenever you heat style, and try to keep this to a minimum. Brush gently, and be careful when removing hair ties too. Spend time choosing the right products, this art naturals argan oil shampoo review for example states how it’s useful for dry hair. Different products will target different things, so work out what your biggest hair issues are and choose accordingly. Some will protect color, others will add volume, others will help to nourish and repair. Use a deeply conditioning hair mask once a week and run some hair oil through the ends after washing. These will help to condition and protect, the healthier your hair is, the easier it will be to manage.

Does Your Hair Still Suit You?
In your teenage years and early twenties, you probably did a lot of experimenting with your hair. Different colors, different lengths, and styles, chances are you had fun with it. But as time went on, you probably found a style and color you liked and stuck with it. However, just because it suited you once doesn’t mean it always will. Weight gain or loss, aging and skin changes will all affect what cut and color looks best on you. Extreme colors like platinum blonde, jet black or deep reds might look striking in your younger years but leave you looking washed out years later. If you’re unsure, you’re always best speaking to a hairdresser. They will be able to advise you on the most flattering look based on your face shape, colorings, and age.

Is it Time Consuming?
We all lead busy lives if you don’t have the time or inclination to be spending an hour each morning on your hair, then make sure you have some go-to styles that you can fall back on. It doesn’t have to be thrown back into a ponytail or messy bun, there are twists and braids that look smart but take minutes to do. Check out Youtube for some tutorials and master a couple of quick and easy hairstyles.

When was the last time you updated your style? Do you still have fun with your look, or stick to tried and tested styles?
