Low maintenance hair tips for every texture

Low maintenance hair tips for every texture

Let’s face it, your life is busy, busy, busy. You simply don’t have the leisure of popping into the salon when your hair needs a quick fix, but looking your best is also important. 

So, how do you get the look you want without going to the salon? A few low-maintenance hair tips can help

Quick fixes for common hair concerns

Your hair isn’t cooperating, but you have no time to hit the salon. It’s a fact of life that does have a solution. Try the following tips to help you get through those difficult hair stages until you can get back to the salon. 

Faded color

When your hair starts to fade and look dull rather than dynamic, it’s usually time to schedule a salon appointment. But, what if you could change your routine a little bit to extend the life of your color? It’s a timesaving, hair-health-boosting bonus tip for everyone with colored hair. 

The first step is to reconsider your shampoo. Shampooing your hair with harsh chemicals strips it of color, and the more often you shampoo, the faster you’re washing away that great-looking hue. 

Switch to an all-natural shampoo and then skip shampoos to make the most of your color. The great news is that with this approach, not only will your hair color last longer, but your hair will end up being much healthier. It’s a win/win all the way around.

Next, you’ll want to protect your hair when you’re in the sun, so the color isn’t literally sun-bleached away. Find hair products that contain UV protection, and you are part of the way there. You’ll also want to focus on eating foods that have natural sunscreens in them to protect your hair and your skin. Finally, cover your hair with a hat or a scarf when you can.

Frizz attack 

Frizz is caused by a lack of moisture. A humid day that’s full of moist air makes your hair stand up and frizz, which makes it feel like it’s the moisture that makes it frizzy, right? But it’s actually because there’s not enough moisture in your hair, and your hair is desperate to absorb as much moisture as it can from the air, so it puffs up to let that moisture in.

By adding moisture and nourishment to your haircare routine, you can banish the frizzies forever. The Hair La Vie Shampoo and Conditioner set is designed to help you do just that. With proprietary blends of all-natural ingredients, your hair will be revitalized and nourished from the inside out, so it has all of the moisture it needs to be frizz-free.

Blow out blahs

You love the way you look after your blowout; your hair looks, feels, and smells amazing. A week later, not so good. So how do you recreate that look and feel without running to the salon? Try the following, and be amazed.

Focus on nutrition. Healthy ingredients in your body make for a healthy appearance on the outside.

Use all-natural products. Changing your products to ones that support moisture naturally helps your hair stand up to regular blowouts without drying your strands.

Naturally dry your hair. Let your hair air dry as much as possible, and after you’ve wet it, use an old t-shirt or a smoothing hair wrap to absorb moisture.

Round ceramic brush. Using a round, ceramic brush will minimize frizz and help to lock in the style.

Blast with cool air. Finish your home blowout with a blast of cool hair to help hold the style in place.

Patience. To really do a home blowout, you need to focus on one section at a time. While you’re tempted to wave that blow dryer around and dry faster, that’s just not how a salon-quality blowout is achieved, and that may not work for you.

Style grows out

Your style is a thing of the past, and it’s time for a cut–or is it? Have you considered going for a longer look? Why be a slave to style when longer hair gives you so many options? It’s also easier than ever to grow your hair out quickly, all you need is proper care and nutrition.

Adding Hair La Vie Clinical Formula Hair Vitamins to your healthcare plan gives you essential nutritional support that will rejuvenate your hair from the inside out with antioxidants, vitamins, fatty acids, minerals, and more. This helps you get through the awkward stage and into a whole new you with long, luxurious hair.

Pampering withdrawal

Hey, let’s admit the truth, sometimes you go to the salon just to feel pampered. You love the way your hair smells and feels after using salon products, and that head massage is fabulous. 

We get it, and there are some things you can do to recreate that pampered feeling at home, but it’s never going to be exactly the same as having a trained professional doing it. That said, the following will help you feel refreshed and reinvigorated.

Make a scalp massage part of your weekly haircare plan. Scalp massages are incredibly healthy for you and your hair. Spend 5-10 minutes really massaging and relaxing, and you’ll feel incredible.

Use all-natural products with a fresh light scent. Ever notice that the products you find at a salon never smell strong or artificial. But most of the products you buy in a box have a noticeable perfume scent. Opt for all-natural products to get that crisp light scent your salon uses, and you’ll also find your hair is much healthier, too.

Do a DIY face scrub, too. Make your at-home hair massage more efficient by pairing it with a DIY face scrub. You’ll really feel refreshed when you’re done, and you’ve used your time wisely.

Adding these three tips into your weekly hair routine will help boost the health and appearance of your hair while making you feel pampered.

Hair La Vie Shampoo and Conditioner

No matter what your hair texture and nature is or what your hair problem is, the best way to keep your hair look longer without going to the salon is to use the best products. You and your hair deserve to be lavished in only the finest ingredients that work together to boost your hair health. 

Hair La Vie Shampoo and Conditioner set is the first step in this journey to ultimate hair health with a rare combination of 21 natural oils, extracts, vitamins, proteins, and amino acids that nourish from the inside out to completely revitalize your hair’s appearance.

Final thoughts

If your hair is starting to look blah and you’re fighting your regular hair problems again, it’s not time to schedule a salon appointment, it’s time to reevaluate your haircare routine.

It’s true that creating a healthier hair routine can save you time and money by eliminating or pushing out your salon trips. Not only that, but your hair will look and feel better than before, and you will know that you’re the reason behind it all. There’s nothing better than knowing you’re in control and working toward being the best version of you possible.
