5 Homemade Hair Treatments : Olive Oil, Protein, and More


Are you looking for great homemade hair treatments? We all dream of lush, lustrous hair. Our hair defines us and when it’s dull and lifeless, it can make us feel the same way. Regular shampooing and conditioning is not enough to keep hair in the best shape possible. For superb style it’s also important to include a deep conditioning treatment to ensure your locks are in optimal shape. Remember, when your hair feels great, you’ll feel great too!

Between your regular visits to the salon you should be using products that will refresh and revitalize your hair.Essentious hair care is made with natural ingredients that will keep your hair looking salon fabulous. .

1) Deep Conditioning Treatment

Ever wondered where healthy hair gets its shine? In healthy hair, the outer layer or cuticle lays smooth. All of it’s “scales” are lined up and flat, one on top of the other. The layers are tightly sealed, holding in moisture and creating a smooth surface that reflects light. In dry or damaged hair, the layers of the cuticle peel away and separate, allowing natural oils to escape. These rough cuticles absorb light, which makes your hair look dull.

Smooth cuticles = reflected light = SHINE!

The daily conditioner you use is designed to work on the outside of your hair, to coat the strands for protection. To really change the texture and health of your hair, you need a treatment designed to penetrate the internal structure of your hair. Deep conditioning penetrates the cuticle, replaces lost oil, and smoothes the surface, restoring elasticity and shine. Best of all, you can easily create a deep conditioning treatment at home, which can work in as little as five minutes.

Here is a simple deep conditioning recipe you can make and use at home:


Avocado Deep Conditioner for Dry Hair

Avocados are not just delicious, they are also fantastic for treating dry and brittle hair. The monounsaturated fatty acids, phytosterols, and high levels of antioxidants like vitamin E in avocados are well absorbed into our scalp and hair shafts. This not only has a highly moisturizing and protective effect against environmental stressors and damage, it may also stimulate new growth and help unclog blocked follicles.


  • 1 ripe avocado, mashed well
  • 2 tablespoons pure or organic honey
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil (or extra-virgin olive oil)


In a bowl or blender, mash avocado until smooth. Add oil and honey and mix well.

Apply to clean, wet hair. Cover hair with a plastic shower cap or Saran wrap and let sit for one hour.

Rinse thoroughly. Shampoo and condition as normal.


2) Olive Oil Hair Treatment

There is possibly no single ingredient that has more uses and benefits for your hair than olive oil. If you’re in a hurry, you can use a tiny amount on your finger tips to tame split ends and tame flyaway hair. For a deeper treatment you can use olive oil on its own or mix it with other ingredients for a penetrating conditioner to restore hair to radiance.

Olive oil has been an essential ingredient in hair health since ancient times. This wonderful oil is rich in vitamin E and healthy fat. Prevent breakage and strengthen hair strands by using olive oil to hydrate dry or brittle hair.

Here are some easy olive oil hair treatments to leave your hair full, sleek, and wonderfully touchable.

On-the-Go Hot Oil Treatment


  • ¼ cup olive oil


Heat oil (do not use a microwave), let it stand until it is warm to touch and pour carefully over head. (Test first to make sure oil is not too hot).

Massage gently into scalp and work fingers or wide-toothed comb through hair to ensure strands are completely saturated righto the ends.

Shampoo immediately. Shampoo again to remove and residual oil and condition as normal.


Banana, Avocado Mask for Hair Growth

A perfect mask to help fortify and strengthen your hair, while moisturizing to help grow out those long locks you’ve always wanted.

The egg in this recipe supercharges the benefits of olive oil. Eggs are rich in protein, vitamins and fat—perfect for nursing dry hair back to health. Egg yolks nourish, moisturize, and lubricate dry damaged hair. Banana is rich in potassium, natural oils, carbohydrates and vitamins, which help soften the hair and protect the hair’s natural elasticity, preventing split ends and breakage.


  • ½ ripe avocado, mashed
  • ½ ripe banana, mashed
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil



Puree avocado and banana together until no clumps are present.

Add in beaten egg and olive oil. Mix thoroughly.

Apply to dry hair and leave in for 15 to 30 minutes.

Rinse with cool water. (Warm or hot water will cook the egg.)

Shampoo and condition as normal.


3) Protein Treatment for Healthy Hair

One of the best hair treatments for natural hair growth and repair is protein. Your hair needs protein just as much as your body does. In fact, hair is made of about 91% protein.

Protein treatments are used to add strength and resiliency to damaged hair. Protein reinforces the hair shaft and makes it strong. It binds to the hair cuticle to rebuild the weakened areas.

It’s important to get the right amount of protein in your diet, as this is the key to natural hair growth. According to the US Department of Agriculture, an adult woman should consume at least five ounces of protein per day—more if you exercise for at least 30 minutes per day on a regular basis. Good sources of healthy protein are lean meats, beans, fish, nuts, eggs, and soy products.

But you can also infuse protein directly into your hair with a protein treatment. There are four main types of protein treatments:


  1. Protein packs – these are good for routine maintenance to restore and balance (every 4-6 weeks).
  2. Light protein treatments – sometimes packaged as leave-ins, this treatment is ideal for regular maintenance (every wash or less if you feel your hair is too stiff when styling).
  3. Deep penetrating treatments – these are intense hydrators. Good for use on moderately damaged hair (good for use every other week/wash-day).
  4. Reconstructors – these are often used to repair damage from heat styling or drying effects of color processing (depending on your hair type and needs, every week to repair extensive damage or every other week).

Selecting the protein treatment that is right for you is important. Essentious Rejuvenate is one piece of a product line specifically designed to work with many hair types. If you’re looking for the best ingredients for a DIY protein treatment include eggs, mayonnaise, yogurt, coconut butter/cream, and avocado. Here’s a yogurt protein treatment for hair that will leave yours supple and smooth:


Greek Yogurt Protein Treatment


  • ¼- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (regular yogurt will also work but Greek yogurt has more protein)


Use the amount of yogurt needed for your hair’s thickness and length.

Apply to clean, dry hair. Massage gently into scalp and work down to coat right to the ends. Leave on for 20 – 60 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly. Shampoo and condition as normal.


4) Easy Homemade Hair Treatments

From rinses to masks, you can brighten and condition your hair with many of the ingredients you already have in your fridge or cupboard. Here are two of our favorite recipes for DIY hair treatments.

Banana and Honey Mask for Fine or Thin Hair

For hair care on a budget you can’t beat this mask with two powerhouse and inexpensive ingredients: bananas and honey.

Bananas nourish the scalp and hair follicles, help maintain natural hair elasticity, and prevent breakage and split ends. A touch of honey,a natural humectant,will add moisture and shine to even the dullest head of hair.


  • 1-2 bananas depending on size
  • 1-2 tablespoon(s) of honey



Mash the banana(s) in a bowl until smooth, and then add the honey to your mashed bananas.

Apply the mixture to clean dry or slightly damp hair. Cover with a shower cap, towel or saran wrap and wait 20-30 minutes.

Rinse out hair mask. Shampoo and condition as normal.


Egg white and Lemon Hair Mask for Oily Hair

Limp, stringy, greasy, no matter how you describe it, oily hair is hard to control and can be a styling nightmare.

Egg whites control sebum secretion in the scalp by tightening the hair follicles. This will reduce the amount of sebum secreted through the hair follicles and remove excess oils from your scalp and hair. What’s more, egg whites are filled with bacteria hindering enzymes to keep your scalp clean and healthy.

Lemons are the egg’s natural companion when it comes to oily hair. Excess oil can cause your hair to feel heavy, but the astringent and toning effect of lemon balances your scalp’s natural oil production and removes any excess oil. Lemon juice also works to restore your scalp’s pH balance, and adds body and sheen to your hair.

For lighter hair, free from dirt, toxins and unwanted oil you should use an egg white and lemon juice mask once a week.


  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • Juice of 1 lemon


Beat one egg white until it forms stiff peaks (this will make your mask easier to apply), then add salt and lemon.

Mix everything well, apply mixture to scalp, and wait 30 minutes.

Rinse out hair mask. Shampoo and condition as normal.

For best results with each of these DIY conditioning treatments you should consider using other natural styling agents. The complete Essentious hair care line are aloe vera based and gentle with no sulfates or other harsh ingredients that will help you maintain and extend the effects of your DIY treatment.

5) Bonus Tips

The beauty of homemade hair treatments with all natural ingredients is that it’s fun and safe to experiment and you can create a recipe that is exactly right for your particular hair type. Here are a few tips that can help you get started and make the experimenting a lot more fun.


  • The first time you try a mask make sure you have nothing important planned afterward. As much as you try to avoid them, mistakes will happen. You don’t want to show up at your best friend’s wedding with greasy hair because you accidentally used too much oil in your DIY mask! Plan your first DIY when you have no plans and are not obliged to attend an event.
  • Prepare for mess. It’s best to apply most of these treatments in the shower. That way, if you spill some you won’t damage your carpet, furniture or clothes. If you can’t use a shower, plan to apply your mask in an area you can clean up easily.
  • More does not always equal better. Too much oil can cause you a world of grief when it’s time to wash it out. And clarifying ingredients such as vinegar or lemon can strip and dry your hair if used too frequently or left on too long. Always start small. It’s easier to add more later if your first try doesn’t work out.
  • Choose the treatment that’s right for your hair type. Thick, curly hair has different needs than fine, thin hair. Just because a treatment promises deep conditioning, doesn’t mean it’s the best choice for your texture or hair type, if you’re not sure about your hair type talk to your stylist, they will be qualified to explain what your hair needs. And if you have combination hair (Oily on the top, dry on the bottom), make sure you choose a hair treatment especially formulated for combination hair.
  • If at first you don’t succeed… D-I-Y There is no exact science and what worked for your best friend may not work for you. Hair care comes with no guarantees and you will likely have to try a few different recipes before you find “the one”. Don’t despair, this is to be expected. Have fun along the way and make your hair treatment days into spa days, so no matter what the result you will walk away relaxed and rejuvenated.

We are sure you will find a DIY hair treatment that you will love! Whether you choose a treatment that is protein based, an olive oil hair treatment, a deep conditioning treatment, or any of the homemade hair treatments we’ve suggested, your locks will thank you when they are once again brilliant and full of life.

Hair Care Tips for Treating Porosity




Have you ever been told by a hair care professional that you have porous hair? Are you even aware what porosity is and how to identify it. We generally think of our hair in terms of length, thickness, and overall health we rarely seek out hair care options for managing the porosity of your hair. In a previous post we explained the important of maintaining a smooth closed cuticle, well your hair becomes porous when those cuticles have been open for too long and damage has occurred.

Certain hair types are more prone to porosity than others, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t work to minimize the amount of porosity in your hair. Don’t know how to determine whether or not you have porous hair to what degree it is damaged? There is a simple test that you can do at home to understand whether or not your hair is porous.

Testing For Porosity

  • Place a shed hair (don’t pull or cut) into a glass, the degree to which your hair sinks in the water shows how porous your hair is or isn’t. Hair that has high porosity will sink, normal porosity will float in the water, low porosity hair will remain unmoved on top of the water.

Don’t have a glass of water handy?

  • Try rubbing thumb and index finger down a strand of hair. If you descend down the strand smoothly you have low porosity hair, a bumpy ride down indicates high porosity.

Now that you’ve tested your hair, what is the verdict? Is your hair porous – if the answer is yes don’t grab the scissors. We can help you get your hair back to healthy growing with a combination of hair care tips and an improved regimen that includes HAIRFINITY healthy hair vitamins your hair will become healthier and more manageable over time.

The 7 Best Hair Mask Recipes For Every Hair Type


We all want lustrous, silky locks, no matter what the length, style, or texture of our hair. But considering the torture we put out hair through with heat styling, harsh chemicals, and even the heat of the sun, can we even hope for healthy hair? Of course you can, and we’re here to help by giving you a better understanding of the difference between conditioners and masks we’ve also collected some of the best DIY hair mask recipes to restore the vibrancy and manageability of your tresses.

 The Difference Between Hair Masks and Conditioners

Most people believe using a conditioner every day or every other day is enough to keep their hair in good shape. Not true. Daily conditioners only work on the surface of the hair, while deep conditioning treatments such as hair masks and protein treatments are designed to go to work on the internal structure of the hair.

Deep conditioning is essential to good scalp and hair health, especially dry, damaged, or chemically processed (relaxed or dyed) hair. A hair mask delivers powerful nourishment to your follicles scalp and hair. However, a hair mask alone is not enough to maintain healthy hydrated hair. You should also be getting all of the hair-specific nutrients your hair needs through your diet. Using a hair vitamin such as Hairfinity can help fill in the gaps left by your diet to ensure that your hair is nourished from the inside out. In addition to your diet, it is also important to use products designed to be gentle and promote hair health such as HAIRFINITY Haircare products.

Frizzy Hair, Not Today

You’ve washed and styled your hair exactly like the girl did in the video that your friend sent you last week. But instead of the beautiful, smooth, shiny curls that the video ended with –  all you’re left with is frizzy hair. It happens all the time, but you’re usually between salon visits and you want your hair to look great but, you don’t have the time or money to make an unplanned trip to the salon. Don’t be discouraged, with a better understanding of how to best repair and prevent frizzy hair you’ll be able to master those DIY styling techniques in no time.

Frizz occurs when the cuticle layer of your hair is raised, allowing moisture to pass through and swell the strands. As a result, your hair appears dry and frizzy instead of smooth and defined. In general, curly hair tends to have more frizz than straight hair because of dehydration in the strands, which leaves it more vulnerable to frizzing. Whether your hair is curly, straight, natural, or chemically processed, we’ve all had to battle frizzy hair at one time or another. It is important to note that all frizzy hair is not created equal. There are many culprits of frizzy hair and a few different ways that your hair can appear to be frizzy. The most common types of frizz are:

Vitamins For Hair Growth: Secret Scalp Nourishing Superfoods


Have you ever seen someone with hair that you couldn’t stop sneaking glances at? Chances are you have, and you probably wondered how much she spends to maintain that shiny, voluminous mane. What you may not have considered is, what her eating habits might consist of. Did you know that the easiest way to fabulous looking hair is a well balanced diet? Consider this, without a properly balanced diet you are depriving your scalp of what it needs to produce a beautiful head of hair. And while there are a wide variety of foods that will improve your physical health we’d like to focus on the foods that contain vitamins for hair growth.

There are many factors that play key roles in the hair growth process including genetics, environment and the amount of wear and tear your daily styling habits include. By adding as many super foods as possible to your diet, your scalp will get what it needs and in turn you’ll get what you want – enviable tresses. However, for those of us who aren’t fully committed to an all health food diet, a nutritional supplement may be just what you need to fill the vitamin gaps in your diet.

Giving Your Scalp What It Needs.

An important fact to understand is that hair grows in cycles. The anagen phase also referred to as the growth phase lasts the longest, anywhere from two to six years. The catagen or “transitional” phase is a period of time when the hair follicle shrinks, the lower part of the follicle is destroyed and the dermal papilla breaks away, this is basically the body’s natural way of shedding hairs. The final phase is referred to as the telogen or resting phase. It will last for a period of five to six weeks. During this time the follicle remains attached to the scalp but growth is temporarily stopped.

The good news about our cyclical hair growth is that not all of the one hundred thousand strands are affected by the same phase at once. The bad news is many of don’t thoroughly understand how our hair grows so it may seem as if we’re cursed hair that will not grow. But if you know the process of hair growth it’s easier to understand why consistent good hair habits will take you a long what in your growth process

The best way to understand what is required for healthy hair growth may be to think of your hair as a plant. We all know that plants needs water, sunlight, and moist nutrient rich soil. How much of those required elements you give to the plant is dictated by the needs of the plant, but the main three factors don’t change. Now think of your hair, we all have different hair types with different ideal growth situations. Your scalp is the soil and in order for each hair follicle to thrive, nutrients and moisture are key. Adding vitamins for hair growth to your diet will provide you with essential nutrients and moisture to give your hair a healthy boost. Understanding your hair type is important in maximizing your hair’s health and growth.



Nutrient Rich Soil

Vitamins for hair growth contain the building blocks for healthy hair. And healthy hair has certain characteristics no matter the length, texture or color. Good blood circulation, elasticity and a cuticle that is tightly sealed are a few signs of healthy hair. Here are the key vitamins for hair growth that you need to enrich your scalp and help grow healthier, longer hair.

  • Vitamin B2 (Riboflavin) promotes healthy cell growth, helps maintain red blood cells thereby supplying vital nutrients to hair follicles.
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin) promotes healthy scalp circulation
  • Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine  HCI) has a critical role in proteins involved in many chemical reactions in the body.
  • Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) essential in the formation of healthy red blood cells that transport oxygen to scalp and follicles – this is a crucial component of sustained hair growth.
  • Vitamin B7 (Biotin – D-Biotin) helps produce keratin and works to increase elasticity in the cortex. Elasticity is the first defense in the prevention of breakage and hair loss. Hair will also appear thicker and less dry.
  • Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is an antioxidant that helps maintain hair and skin health by enhancing immune function at a cellular level.
  • Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) helps the body hold on to hair longer which is optimal for a voluminous head of hair. Vitamin D also aids in the absorption of calcium which is necessary for the development and maintenance of healthy cells.
  • Folic Acid works with vitamin B12 to help in the development of healthy red blood cells, as well as the production of healthy DNA, which controls tissue growth and cell activity.
  • Calcium (Calcium Carbonate) critical for overall health and wellness as it plays a major role in healthy cell development throughout the body.

Vitamins For Hair Growth On Your Plate

The best thing about a well-balanced diet is that there are so many options that you don’t have to restrict yourself. You can be as traditional or experimental as you’d like, and with so many options you’re sure to find something you like.

A Healthy Scalp Is Well Stimulated

Now that we understand the basic nutritional components to having a healthy scalp, let’s discuss some other steps that we can take to nourish and care for the scalp from the outside.

  • Keep your scalp moisturized. Our hair naturally creates an oil called sebum, how much or how little sebum is produced determines whether your hair is consider dry, normal or oily. The amount of additional moisture as well as the manner in which you moisturize hair is also dependent on your natural oil production. Here are a few ways that you can add moisture to any hair type.
  • Oil treatments
  • Deep Conditioning
  • Protein treatments
  • Use a moisturizing shampoo
  • Keep hair free of product buildup
  • Avoid products with high alcohol or butane content
  • Replenish the natural sebum that is lost through washing and maintenance by using natural oils that nourish and protect. This will help to keep the cuticle smooth and tightly aligned and also certain natural oils go a long way in helping hair retain moisture by getting into the cortex.
  • Avoid vigorous brushing, scratching, shampooing, or styling to avoid abrasions, sensitivity, and possible damage. While all of these things can be beneficial to having a healthy scalp you should not do any of them in an attempt to alleviate discomfort caused by dry scalp or product buildup. Too much pressure or the use of fingernails while attempting to relieve your scalp could cause unintended damage.
  • Reduce tension-heavy styling techniques that can stress follicles and damage strands. Occasionally pulling your hair back into a pony tail, braids or protective hairstyles used to wear a wig or weave will not damage your hair if you are careful not to pull too tight. If you are wearing a protective style be mindful of the edges of your hair nearest your hairline and avoid causing unnecessary tension or stress on the scalp.
  • Give yourself a scalp massage. Who doesn’t love a good massage? Massages are great for stimulating circulation throughout the body, giving your scalp a good massage is no different. Scalp massage is great for increased circulation and will assist in delivering nutrients to the hair’s follicle which is the starting point of healthy hair growth.
  • Try a vitamin supplement. If you’re not sure about adding liver and dry figs to your diet in order to maximize your hair’s growing potential, why not try a nutritional supplement? Hairfinity is a vitamin supplement that can deliver all of the above mentioned vitamins and minerals along with a proprietary complex, which are all known for creating a healthy scalp environment.

Maintain Your Healthy Scalp

There are so many hair care measures that you can employ to make sure you’re getting all you can from your vitamins for healthy hair. However, you will find that our natural environment is a little more difficult to manage. Factors that vary from the types of chemicals in our water to the amount of UV exposure play key roles in determining what types of care you use to develop and maintain a healthy scalp.

Constant exposure to pollutants and other harsh chemicals in the air and water will cause damage if you don’t learn how to combat it early. The chemicals used to prep water for consumption are fine for drinking but can be very damaging to your skin and hair. Chemical substances such as chlorine and calcium can cause harm to your scalp and hair follicle during washing. We are in no way saying avoid a pool cool down during summer or start washing your hair with bottled water. But we are suggesting that you limit exposure to any hair damaging agents, or at least understand what your hair is being stripped of so that you’re able to replace it.

Water treatment varies by region, so you’ll have to learn what’s in your water to find out what’s being taken from your hair. The types of chemicals or minerals that are added and / or removed to make water safe for human use and consumption is dependent on the water’s source. Some common water treatment agents that can cause damage to your hair over time include the following:

Calcium – Calcium ingested in the body through either a balanced diet, the use of dietary supplements or both can be excellent in the growth of healthy hair. However, calcium in the water can build up on the scalp giving the appearance of dandruff. Calcium can also choke the hair closest to the follicle, eventually coating the scalp and blocking new growth.

Chlorine – Chlorine can damage the cuticle and proteins of the hair. A natural oxidizer, chlorine can cause the air and UV rays to worsen the chemical’s damaging effects on hair.

These aren’t the only two chemicals that are commonly found in our water. But they are the ones that are the most damaging to even the healthiest hair.

Once You Get Growing

Now that you’re on the right track nutritionally and we have a few hair care practices to stimulate the scalp and manage moisture, what’s next? Once your scalp has been properly nourished and you have beautiful, strong and healthy tresses growing you’ll need to maintain that positive growth. What you don’t want to do is slack on any of the methods and products that have you on a growing path. What you do want to do is minimize styling practices that might counteract all of your great new hair care habits and employ a few general upkeep techniques.

  • Minimize the heat. Prolonged use of blow dryers, flat irons, curling wands and other heated styling tools should be kept to a minimum. Everyone loves the polished look that come as a result of using them, but they can cause damage to you strands which will last long after the party.
  • Protect your ends. The most vulnerable part of our hair is the at ends, it is the oldest and has sustained the most wear and tear. In addition to moisturizing the ends it is important to tuck them away whenever possible. A messy bun or a cute braided style is a great way to protect your ends from the damage waiting for it on the outside.
  • Keep it trimmed. Keeping the ends of your hair trimmed will go a long way to maintaining the polished look of your hair style. However, there is a greater purpose to regular trims. You can manage split or fibrillated ends and keep damaged ends from preventing or negating positive growth.
  • Deep conditioning and carrier oils. Take time to deep condition your hair, deep conditioning is a great way to add moisture to the scalp and cortex. Adding a carrier oil such as coconut or jojoba to your favorite conditioner will provide additional moisture that will penetrate the hair shaft.

A Healthy Scalp Is Not Impossible

Once you get a hair care regimen that works for you, it should be easy to maintain your healthy scalp and hair. When your scalp is properly nourished with vitamins for hair growth, the lengths that you can grow your hair to are numerous. Enjoy being the center of attention as your friends and family ask you what you’re doing to get such gorgeous hair.

Coconut Oil For Hair Easy Tips & Tricks


Coconut oil for hair has long been known as a great benefit to hair health. Coconut oil is rich in carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, which are all beneficial to the human body, in a variety of ways. In recent years, coconut oil has been all the rage and has been used in the preparation of everything from cosmetic soaps and creams, to use as oil in the preparation of food.

Coconut oil for hair has been used for centuries by people living in coastal areas of the world, where coconuts grow in abundance. Areas like India, the Philippines and parts of the Caribbean have used the sweet smelling oil as their one and only hair oil for years. Coconut oil has shown incredible results for hair – keeping hair strong, nourished, and protected from the effects of premature aging. The benefits and uses of coconut oil for hair are truly endless.


Fight Frizz the Right Way




Whether you wear your hair straight or curly, frizz can turn a good hair day into a bad one. Sometimes, frizz is inevitable, such as in humid weather, but it doesn’t have to overwhelm your hairstyle. You’ll use different products and methods based on your desired style. No matter how you wear your hair, a well-conditioned mane is primed to combat frizz, so be sure to use a leave-in conditioner and deep conditioning treatments on a regular basis.

For Straight Hair

Allow wet sets to completely dry: Starting with a wet set is a good idea regardless of the season. However, don’t make the mistake of removing your rollers before your hair is completely dry. Doing so causes frizz. Sitting under a hood or bonnet dryer is the quickest way to fully dry locks, so apply a heat protectant beforehand and make sure you have some entertainment lined up so that you don’t get bored.

Apply serums to dry hair: Once your final style is in place, add a dab of shine serum to dry hair. You only need a small amount so that your mane isn’t weighed down with too much product.

Baby those ends: Healthy ends won’t frizz like damaged ones, so make sure yours are free of splits and excessive dryness. Sealing in moisture as often as needed and dusting are two ways to keep your ends in check.
