If you didn't already already know that there's an entire day dedicated to hair, well, now you do. Every year on October 1st we take the time to appreciate every stylist, product, accessory, and style that makes our hair look healthy, shiny, and fabulous!
In a world where hair trends come and go, it's important to make sure that hair health is always your first priority. From fine/thin to thick/coarse hair, we know how paramount it is to use products and styling tools that keep our hair healthy and looking its best.
First and foremost, take a moment to appreciate the hair you were born with. No matter the texture or color, all hair deserves to be celebrated! Here are some things you can do today in honor of National Hair Day:
Try out a new style
If you've been thinking about switching things up - today's the day! Embrace change and boost your confidence with a new cut, color, or style.
Show your hair some love
Don't forget to include your hair in your self care days! Take the time to use a deep conditioner or hair mask today to help improve the health of your scalp, strengthen your hair, and give your hair some added moisture.
Treat yourself to new products
In order to maintain your hair's health, make sure you're using high quality products - both hot tools and hair care! NuMe's number one priority is the health of your hair. Our styling tools are designed with cutting-edge technologies and professional-grade materials to help you achieve your styling goals while maintaining the integrity of your hair.
Thank your stylist
While hair stylist's have their own day of celebration (hint: it's April 30), you should still show them some love today too! They deserve lots of praise for everything they do to maintain your hair's health and keep you looking fabulous.
Make a resolution with yourself to commit to your hair health this year. Moving forward, you should make decisions that will help you achieve soft, smooth, moisturized hair.
Frizzy hair is the bane of every girl's existence. Achieving smooth, frizz-free hair is an art form. There are a lot of factors that contribute to frizz, such as humidity, genetics, over cleansing, low-quality products, and heat damage, but there are ways to combat this.
Limit the amount of times you apply heat to your hair. Investing in high quality hot tools, like NuMe's, means you can achieve your desired look in less time with longer lasting results. And when you do use heat, remember that just because your flat iron or curling wand goes to 450, does not mean you need to use the highest heat setting.
Opt for high quality hair care products, especially ones that help restore your hair's natural moisture balance. Low quality products can strip your hair of natural oils, making your hair dry, weak and brittle. Moisturizing shampoos, conditioners, and hair oils should be your new go-to.
If you're looking for that extra smooth, glass hair effect, we recommend using our Vegan Tourmaline Smoothing Treatmentto make daily styling a breeze. Add some hair oil to smooth down the ends and you're good to go!
Healthy hair has a natural luminosity and shine to it & hydrated hair is healthy hair! Maintaining your hair's natural moisture balance is vital to your hair's health. Dry hair is more prone to breakage and heat damage, so keeping those locks moisturized is essential.
Create a hair care routine that works for your specific hair type. Use products specific to your hair goals, be mindful of the food you're eating, and only wash your hair when absolutely necessary.
To ensure your hair is moisturized, add a deep conditioner to you hair care routine at least once a week. Not to be biased, but we recommend our Vegan Tourmaline Hair Mask for added nourishment and hydration. If you're thinking 'how often should I wash my hair?' check out this article.
Your hair's health isn't solely based on the products you use, it's also impacted by your diet. Drinking water is good for both your skin and hair, so make sure you're getting in those 8 glasses daily! Eating foods rich in protein, healthy fats, and Omega-3's will help strengthen hair and increase its shine.
Soft, silky hair is a byproduct of moisturized hair. In addition to all the things we mentioned above, you should trim your hair every 6-8 weeks to reduce split ends and prevent additional breakage. Protecting your hair from the sun's UVA and UVB rays is also beneficial, so wear a hat or look for hair products with SPF in it. And lastly, the most important hair care tip for maintaining remarkable hair is consistency. Keep up all the good work you've done so far on your hair journey and your efforts will pay off.
Happy National Hair Day!
