9 Ways To Strengthen Your Hair Today

9 Ways To Strengthen Your Hair Today

If you like fast results, then you’re in luck. Because even though longer & stronger hair can take time, there are actually 10 easy things you can do to strengthen your hair… right now!

These tips are designed to give you instant satisfaction and effortless results. However, the biggest rewards will only come after long-term diligence and proper haircare. 

So, while immediate gratification can be great, remember that the rest will take time. Don’t worry! We’ll be here to support you every step of the way.

Let’s get started.

1. Raw egg yolk shampoo

We know it might sound like a scene from Rocky, but don’t worry, you won’t be drinking these raw egg yolks… you’re going to use them as shampoo. That’s because raw eggs are a natural moisturizer that can make your hair look instantly fuller and shinier. Just remember to rinse thoroughly.

2. Safe shampoo and conditioner

Alright, we’ll admit it, the egg yolk shampoo is great, but it can be a little intimidating at first. Especially when you think about how hard dried egg yolk is to get off a plate. 

If you’re going to stick to a traditional shampoo and conditioner, find one that’s made of all-natural ingredients with absolutely no added chemicals or sulfates—like Hair La Vie shampoo and conditioner

3. Sleep in braids

Sleeping in big, loose braids can lead to effortlessly subtle waves in the morning while protecting your hair in the evening. They prevent your hair from tangling and breaking when you toss and turn, so you’ll have soft waves and stronger hair when you wake up.

4. Use a satin pillowcase

The cool side of the pillow never felt so good because it’s also great for your hair. Satin pillowcases protect your hair from the strand-breaking friction found in traditional pillowcases. They also hold your style better, so you can skip a wash and keep your hair looking and feeling fuller and stronger.

It’s one of the best things you can do for your hair and you’ll feel like a queen.

5. Air dry

Blow drying your hair, especially on high heat, instantly weakens and drains your hair of vital moisture leaving it more fragile for the entire day. Air drying for just one day can make a huge difference in your hair; imagine what could happen if you made it part of your regular routine?

6. Keep it cool

In addition, to blow drying less, you might want to cut back on the hot styling tools, as well. Instead, consider using Velcro rollers to get the look you want and enhance your waves with Hair La Vie Serum.

7. Get a haircut

When was the last time you had a really great cut that was designed to take advantage of your hair’s natural qualities? By getting a cut that plays up your strong points you’ll style less, and your hair will thank you. 

If you don’t have time to see your hairdresser, a small trim or dusting your ends can also help revive damaged hair.

8. Touch-up those split-ends

Split ends are a sign of weakness. If you can’t get them trimmed right away, then you’ll need to tend to them in another way. 

Applying a quick dab of leave-in conditioner or Hair La Vie Serum to your ends will help prevent further splitting until you can get a cut.

9. Brush, then comb

Before you you hop into the shower, brush your hair with a natural boar's bristle brush. This will gently remove tangles and disperse sebum—your hair’s natural oil—down your hair shaft to strengthen your locks the way Mother Nature intended.

Then, when you’re done with your shower, put the brush away and comb your hair with a wide-toothed comb. Your hair is super fragile when it’s wet, so using a regular brush can rip it out and cause breakage. Instead, build strength with gentle combing.

Final thoughts

The tips above will help you strengthen your hair immediately—and the more of then you adopt today, the stronger your hair will be tomorrow.

In fact, you can start tomorrow morning off strong by mixing up this quick Vitamin A Smoothie. It’s a great way to feed and strengthen your hair.
