Curated By

Start the new year right. 

With 2016 over and done with, most of us are really thinking about the New Year’s resolutions we want to follow to ensure that 2017 is extra amazing (in the hair department, of course!). So, with that in mind, we’ve put together 5 New Year’s resolutions to help you see the new year in with a bang and to get healthy-looking hair in 2017. Easy-peasy, right?

5 New Year’s resolutions for healthy-looking hair


Resolution #1: Try to put the heated styling tools down!

Excessive use of hair dryers, straighteners and curling wands, can make your strands can appear dry and frizzy, as well as feel rough. So, try to cut back on heated styling and if you really must use your styling tools, be sure to prep your hair with a heat protectant, like the VO5 Smoothly Does It Heat Protect Spray to help limit the damage. Trust us, your strands will thank you later!

Resolution #2: Schedule regular salon visits

Regular trims (as scary as they can be!) help your strands stay healthy-looking by removing dry, damaged split ends. It’s recommended to book a haircut in every 6-8 weeks, so to ensure that you do this, try booking in a few haircuts in advance at the beginning of the year. This way, you have no excuse to get your split ends trimmed off!

Resolution #3: Moisturise your strands

If you’re dealing with dry, damaged hair, you’ll most definitely need to up your moisturising game in 2017! Unfortunately, dry hair can often lead to brittleness and breakage (which is something none of us want), so be sure to quench parched strands by using rich, hydrating hair products, like the TRESemmé Moisture Rich Luxurious Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner.

Resolution #4: Sleep on a silk pillow

This clever New Year’s resolution won’t only benefit your hair, but it’ll work wonders for your skin, too. When you sleep on a cotton pillowcase, your strands rub together, causing friction and therefore, more damage. But when you sleep on a silk or satin pillow, your hair won’t rub together as much, plus it won’t absorb as much moisture from your tresses, either!

Resolutions #5: Pay attention to your diet!

As well as using the right products and getting your hair cut regularly, there’s another thing that plays a huge part in achieving healthy-looking hair: your diet! While eating a balanced diet is a no-brainer, there are certain types of food that can even help with the production of healthy hair, like wheats, grains, eggs, avocados and sweet potatoes. Yum!
