2017 is now right around the corner, and it's time to start thinking about our New Year's resolutions. If you want to change your hair for the new year, we have some tips to help you achieve your hair goals for 2017.
Here are some common yet attainable hair goals and how you can stick with them.
New Year, New Style
Commit to making a change that will have lasting, uplifting benefits for the new year, and start 2017 off with a new style. Whether it's letting go of some length you've been holding onto for years and switching up your look with a vibrant new color, often a change in your hairstyle can lead to beneficial changes in other areas of your life as well. Just remember: change is a good thing!
A tip to work up the courage: Peruse online and save some images of some hairstyles you like. Then ask your friends and family members what they think would be the best change for you.
Get More Regular Cuts
One of the most common mistakes made when it comes to haircare is not getting regular haircuts. This often results in split or dead ends that lead to dull, lifeless hair and an inability to obtain your desired growth.
For the new year, commit to getting more regular cuts so that you (a) have fresh hair year-round and (b) are able to grow your hair longer, as you've desired for so long. We recommend a visit to our salons every 2-4 months, depending on how frequently you use hot tools.
A tip for committing to regular cuts: Get to know your hairstylist, and pre-book at then end of each appointment. We can set you up on our email list or call you to remind you of your appointment.
Switch to Professional Products
Have you been using drugstore hair products for as long as you can remember, and suffering in terms of hairhealth as a result? 2017 will not perpetuate this behaviour! Make a promise to yourself to switch over to using professional products for the duration of 2017, and never look back.
A tip for making the switch: Shop our sales and talk to our professional hairstylists about what products are best for you. Stock up – once you start using professional products, you'll be hooked!
Do you wash your hair too frequently, which results in a dry scalp and damaged hair? The reality is, the more you wash your hair, the more you feel like you have to wash your hair. Your scalp becomes dry which results in your roots producing more oils. And the more you wash, the more you damage your hair with a blowdryer and hot tools.
A tip for washing and damaging less: Put yourself on a washing schedule, and keep track of how many times you wash your hair per week. You should aim for no more than 2-3 washes per week. Also, work in a thermal spray to help battle heat damage. Shop our thermal sprays here.
