Five Healthy Hair Tips: How To Stay Flake Free, Promote Growth & Seal Hair

Hair should be every woman's best accessory, but at its worst, it's frizzy, dull, dry, and well-pretty much a nightmare! Fortunately, there are easy fixes for healthier hair. Spending five minutes to optimize your grooming routine can leave hair silky smooth, perfectly coifed, or softly curled. Check out these five tips to help quickly revive locks and restore them to their proper glory.

Seal and Repair Hair Cuticles. Are you overdosing on shampoo? Over shampooing with the wrong products can strip hair's natural oils, drying and weakening hair cuticles. Your hair cuticles are the outermost layer of the hair shaft, and are responsible for locking in moisture. pH balanced shampoos, like Sebamed Everyday Shampoo ($12.99,), can help revive, close and seal the cuticles. Formulated with a new generation surfactant blend, the shampoo's moisture retaining properties penetrate the structure of the hair shaft, adding volume and silky shine.

Choose a "Flake-Free" Diet. Foods high in omega-3 fatty acids, iron and protein can lead to a healthier, happier scalp. Since about 3% of your hair shaft is made up of omega-3 fatty acids, they're vital to keeping you scalp hydrated. Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in foods like walnuts, almonds, tuna and salmon.

Tame Frizz. Instead of loading your hair with oily serums and fly-away tamers, try styling with hair tools that produce ionic heat- a proven frizz fighter. Ionic products like the Rowenta Beauty's Inspiration Pro Auto Sensor Hair Dryer ($159.99) locks in moisture, keeping your tresses hydrated and resistant to breakage, which also gives you that coveted salon-quality shine.

Promote New Growth, Naturally. When trying to grow out your hair its important to trim split ends. Also, giving yourself a gentle scalp massage for 10 minutes 2-3 times a week in the shower can loosen skin flakes, product residue, and natural oils, and increase blood flow to the scalp to help promote new hair growth.

Restore Life to Your Hair. Do you color your hair, straighten it a few times a week, or use a lot of hair spray? Adding chemicals, applying heat, or using products are habits that we all find hard to kick. Luckily, hair masks like Repêchage Hydra-Amino 18 Hair Spa Seaweed Mask ($55) work to restore and nourish hair from scalp to tip for dramatically smoother, more youthful looking hair. Apply it in the shower 1-2 times weekly or leave in overnight for a deep treatment. Formulated with select seaweed plants, this treatment works to repair stressed out tresses and chemically treated hair, as well as protect it from further damage.
