We can’t always keep our new Year’s resolutions and let’s be real, a juice cleanse just isn’t as satisfying as pizza. But at InStyler, everything starts with our hair. Here’s an easy detox routine to undo winter damage that makes hair dry, damaged, and broken and restore moisture and shine. Give your tresses a healthy start to the new year.
GIVE YOUR HAIR SOME LOVE
CLEANSE YOUR SCALP
Just like you cleanse the pores on your face, your scalp needs some TLC to make sure there’s no buildup of product, dirt, sweat, or anything else that will prevent circulation or hair growth. Apple cider vinegar is an amazing at home treatment for cleansing and clarifying. It has antibacterial properties as well as stimulating better blood circulation to the hair follicles. After you have shampooed and thoroughly rinsed your hair, pour a mixture of one cup water and four tablespoons of vinegar over your entire scalp. Massage into your scalp and let sit one to two minutes before rinsing. Repeat once weekly.
Essential oils are an amazing way to replenish parched hair and provide additional benefits like adding shine (chamomile), adding softness (coconut), strengthening (geranium) as well as moisturizing (argan). Apply them to wet hair before cleansing, slathering one on your mane and letting it sit for up to 30 minutes.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
Stay with us here – it’s not a deal breaker to your hair detox! By adding these nutrient-rich foods to your diet you can influence your hair’s thickness, shine, and growth rate. Here are the top foods: (1) almond butter is rich in vitamin E for keeping locks thick and lustrous (2) tangerines are loaded with vitamin C, great for absorbing iron, and vitamin B12, great for promoting growth, reducing hair loss, and slowing down the greying process (3) cinnamon improves circulation to bring oxygen and nutrients to your hair follicles. Sprinkle it in your coffee and oatmeal – that’s a resolution we can stick to!
