Wake Up to Perfect Hair: 6 Ways to Start Your Day Right

We all love coming to the salon for a fresh blow dry, we always feel like a queen after we leave Elle J but how do we keep our hair fresh everyday and most importantly avoid overwashing it- Anytime we can get an extra day out our hair without washing is a win.

1. Protect Your Hair While You Sleep
If you toss and turn during the night like myself, consider investing in a silk or satin pillowcase to protect your hair from friction and breakage. We sell these at Elle J Hair. This simple accessory can make a big difference in preserving your hairstyle and keeping your hair looking its best.

2. Good Scalp Health
Let’s get to the root of your problems. We maintain the skin on our face with lotions and potions yet tend to ignore the scalp If you do not brush, wash or blow-dry your hair regularly then the dead skin cells build up – coupled with sweat and natural oil production, this will lead to an overloaded scalp area It is essential that dead skin is removed by brushing or washing, but also by weekly exfoliation.

3. Brush Before Bed
Brushing your hair before hitting the hay helps distribute natural oils from your scalp throughout your strands, promoting shine and preventing oil buildup at the roots. Use a wide-tooth comb or a brush with soft bristles to gently detangle and smooth your hair.

4. Sleep in a Loose Braid or use a silk scrunchy.
To prevent your hair from getting tangled and frizzy overnight, try sleeping in a loose braid or use a silk scrunchy. This not only helps maintain your hairstyle but also creates soft, natural waves for an effortlessly chic look in the morning.

5. Avoid Heat Styling without heat protectors.
We can’t stress this enough when people come into Elle J that rarely use any styling sprays before heat tool our skin crawls, the risks associated with skipping this step include severe damage such as breakage, split ends, dryness, and brittleness and also the style won’t stay as good without it. So next time you’re thinking about straightening your hair remember to reach for the heat protector, No Excuses!!!

6. Hydrate Your Hair.
Keep your hair hydrated and nourished, Elle J have an amazing range of products that target all hair types to keep those locks healthy. Firstly shampoo and conditioner for your specific hair type is necessary to maintain great quality hair all year round. Adding on to that, using a nourishing hair mask or leave-in conditioner like K18 or Kerastase 8 hour night serum a few times a week will help repair and strengthen your hair while you sleep, resulting in softer, more manageable strands when you wake up. By incorporating these tips into your nightly routine, you’ll wake up with hair that’s ready to take on the day. With a little care and preparation, you can say goodbye to bad hair days and hello to flawless morning hair every day!
