Tips To Make Your Chemically-Treated Hair More Manageable

Drink an adequate amount of water each day for strong, shiny hair – at least 8 cups a day.

When it comes to achieving your best hair ever, ingredients are key. Think of it being similar to what we all know about fitness and health. It’s common knowledge that in order to attain optimal health, we shouldn’t be eating fast or processed foods, and we should consume a good mix of natural vitamins and minerals. But we don’t always think of our hair as requiring the same needs. Truth is, our hair needs just as much love and attention to be just as healthy as we want our bodies to be.


Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase.

Silk and satin are “moisture-retaining” fabrics and allows the moisture you put in your hair to actually stay in your hair, thus allowing you to retain length. Conversely, cotton and polyester pillowcases suck the moisture out, causing brittleness and breakage, particularly for chemically- and color-treated hair. So be sure to sleep only on a silk or satin pillowcase at night. Select one in a pretty color to match your bedroom décor and you’re good to go!
