Five Top Hair Care Tips For Healthy Hair

One of the first things you notice when you meet someone is their hair. Not only the colour and style, but it’s condition too. Whilst your hairdressers in Hitchin can play a role in helping your hair become healthier, there are some essential things that you need to do at home to keep your hair looking and feeling as healthy as possible.

Here are five top hair care tips that will help you on your way to healthier hair…


1. Visit your hairdressers in Hitchin regularly.

We recommend you have your hair cut every 6-8 weeks, no matter what your hair length. If you come at intervals longer than this, this will encourage split ends to build up and this can start to damage the parts of your hair further up the shaft. If you need to book your next appointment with us at our hairdressers in Hitchin, you can book online here.


2. Remember your hair is most vulnerable when wet.

Washing your hair and after you’ve been in the shower are the periods of time when your hair is most likely to be damaged if you’re not careful. Hair is more fragile when wet, causing it to break more easily than when it is dry. Be gentle when shampooing and conditioning your hair, and try to avoid brushing your hair immediately after it has been washed. If you do need to do so, use a wide-toothed comb – they are much gentler on your hair than a normal hair brush is.


3. Avoid really hot showers.

In the cold weather, it can be easy to ramp up the temperature of your shower. Try not to if you can though! Hot water strips protective oils from your hair, causing it to become dry and brittle. Your hair prefers a temperature which is just a bit warmer than your body temperature.


4. Use the correct hair products for your hair type.

With so many hair products out there, it can be hard to know which is best for your hair. The best thing to do is ask one of our hairdressers in Hitchin for some hair product recommendations. Our hairdressers have vast knowledge of a range of hair products, and will be able to advise you on the best one for your hair type. Goldwell and KMS California have a fabulous range of products, and we would highly recommend any of their products to you!


5. Protect your hair from the weather.

The weather can have a big influence on the health of your hair. Cover your head appropriately when in sunlight or out in the wind, snow or rain. Direct sunlight and cold temperatures can massively dry and damage your hair. Whilst you don’t need to have your hair covered all the time, do so when you will be out in the elements for a long period of time or when the weather is particularly bad.


We hope these tips help you keep your hair as healthy as possible. If you’d like any more advice on this, please feel free to talk to one of our stylists at our hairdressers in Hitchin.
