Gorgeous shine, lots of body, countless styling opportunities, and brilliant color; there are so many reasons that healthy hair is something we all strive to have. The team here at Manic Panic totally gets it. We would do just about anything for hair that was equal parts healthy as it was beautiful. WIth that being said, there’s no doubt that our team has researched and dug up any tip or technique that has been credited to helping us work towards healthier hair. That is why, in today’s blog post, we are going to share with you some of the many things that you can do to help nurture your hair back to health, as well as maintain its health in the future. 

Avoid Heat

The one tip that we all know but continue to ignore: styling with heat tools. For as long as most of us have been alive, heat has been used to style hair. Whether your go-to tool is a straightener or curling iron, there’s no denying that these tools do damage to our hair. So, if you’re wanting hair that looks and feels so much healthier, it only makes sense to stay away from these tools that are capable of doing so much damage. 

The good news is, removing these tools from the equation doesn’t necessarily mean that your hair has to look drab. There are plenty of no-heat styling techniques that can help you achieve equally beautiful hair styles. Whether you opt for effortless curls by sleeping in braids or simply letting your hair dry naturally instead of using a blow dryer, these no-heat alternatives are a great way to prioritize the health of your hair. 

Heat Protectant Spray

While there are various ways that you can style your hair without using heat, there are many of us that know we can’t call it quits for good with our heating tools. In those instances, there are still various things that you can do to protect your hair from the heat of the tools. One of the best, and easiest, things that you can do is make sure that you’re always using a heat protectant on your hair when using heat tools. Even spraying some on or working it into your hair can make all the difference when blow drying or straightening out those stubborn kinks. 

Use Quality Products

It’s unfortunate how many hair products use harsh ingredients that are then directly applied to your hair and causing damage. Aside from there being harsh chemicals in various products, there are countless brands that are still testing their products on animals, which we simply can’t understand. When something as simple as the quality of products that you’re using can make a difference on your hair’s health, it’s surprising that more people aren’t willing to do some legwork before committing to a brand. With that in mind, when you’re looking for the best product to leave in your hair or a hair color treatment that will provide you with a gorgeous color, take some time to look into the brand. Make sure that you know which ingredients to stay away from and how these brands are testing their products. You, and your hair, will be very thankful that you did. 

Eat Your Vitamins

If this sounds like the typical advice that you’d get from your mother, you're not wrong. There are so many reasons that eating your vitamins on a regular basis is so important, and one of them is because of the endless benefits to our hair. There are countless ways to consume the vitamins that in turn provide you with healthy hair, glowing skin, and tough nails. Biotin and iron are two of the most common vitamins known for helping with these areas, and the best part is that you can find them in items that are easy to incorporate into your daily meals. Products like bananas, spinach, and peanut butter are all capable of providing you with these wonderful vitamins.

Another great way to get these vitamins is by consuming a daily vitamin or a vitamin that is specifically designed to help with hair, skin, and nails. There are so many different options in regards to brands and dosage, so make sure to spend some time looking into the quality of the product and where it stands amongst similar products.

Find a Great Hair Mask

Can you think of a time where you weren’t feeling your best, so you loaded your body up with nutrients? That is essentially what a hair mask or deep conditioning treatment is, but for your hair. When you start to notice that your hair is looking dull, brittle, or lifeless, it may be time for a treatment that can whip it back into life. Hair masks are one of the more popular treatments that people are using to give their hair the nutrients it’s in need of. While a hair mask may not be capable of completely revitalizing your hair, it is definitely going to give you the nutrients needed to make your hair look and feel so much healthier. 

A deep conditioner is very similar to a hair mask, but does vary in a few ways. Ultimately, a deep conditioner will help by moisturizing your hair and giving it the nutrients needed to reduce the chances of breakage and split ends. You will notice that it looks and feels healthier after the fact, but deep conditioners are also doing so much good for each individual strand of hair, there is a lot of benefit that will go completely unseen.
