How to keep hair healthy?

I keep my hair healthy by doing a lot of things.

If I'm using any heated styling equipment I make sure to regularly use oil treatments. I don't use styling products in my hair everyday, never bleach, never chemically straighten or perm, and always get rid of the dead split hair. I'm fond of coloring my hair black but I never color it all at once every single time. Instead I just get the roots touched up every three weeks. Weather can also play havoc on my hair so I make sure to use different treatments and cleansers accordingly.

But I've realized the best way to keep my hair healthy looking and feeling is vitamins and a proper diet.


Hmm...what brands do you recommend then "mommyslttlmnstr"..?
I need your opinion...
you seem to be really good at this yknow...?


As long as you're using a product by a company that specializes in hair care you should be fine. Of course this basically knocks out more than 50% of the cheaper drugstore hair products. Products that I've witnessed first and second hand that never had a noticeable negative result are;
*Matrix
*Got2b (for a styling product it washes out easily without the need for excessive scrubbing)
*Redken (glass, anti-snap, and extreme)
*Hempz
*AG
*American Crew (fantastic product for men, I highly recommend it)
*Ion (heat protection thermal spray)
*Chi
*Frederic Fekkai

It's not really even the products you're using that are going to keep your hair healthy. It's the natural oil's that those products take out, vitamins, diet, and heat protection (thats where some products can actually help.) Some shampoos and conditioners you can find with tea tree, emu oil, and jojoba oil's. Those can be better for your hair. For figuring out which oil treatments you should use in accordance to your hair color and type just google "oil hair treatments." I know it's lame to say google something but you'll find the answers there. Check a few of the sites that pop up and they will all basically give you lists of what is appropriate for your hair and how to use it.

Honestly, the best thing for cleansing your hair is regular ol' unscented soap and no conditioner... but this only applies to those who live in an area without hard water. Soap being bad for your hair is just a myth. It's only "bad" if you have the hard water.

And wash/condition regularly. But don't condition too much, cause that can also be bad for your hair.


Too much of anything can be bad.

Shampoo is just as bad for your hair as conditioner if not worse because shampoo is the reason you even need the conditioner at all.

What an ugly Cycle.
