How I’m caring for my hair in the new year.

While I’m not the first person to jump on the New Years bandwagon by writing long list of resolutions for the next twelve months, I’m also not one to shy away from any form of self improvement. And when it comes to my hair and taking care of my strands, I’m always up for making some healthier choices. Below is a rundown of my new year hair resolutions and exactly how I plan to keep them.

From a few planet-friendly decisions to a commitment to get my hair cut more often, my new year hair resolutions have me feeling excited to tackle and conquer the coming year.

I sat down with pen and paper to make a list of all my resolutions.

I’ll be getting more frequent haircuts.

For a few years now, I’ve been guilty of only getting my hair cut two or three times a year. I’m making a commitment to getting a trim every two months to keep my hair healthy and fresh. I’ll be using Suave Professionals Avocado + Olive Oil Smoothing Leave-In Conditioner to smooth my hair and keep it healthy and moisturized in between haircuts.

I’ll be giving my hair a break from hot tools.

I’ve been guilty of frying my hair with a hair straightener or curling iron for as long as I can remember. I’m going to try and use my hot tools less frequently by employing an effective air dry method. In addition, I’ll be stretching out the time in between hair washes. When I do make a break for my curling iron, I’m going to be more diligent about using a heat protectant on my hair. TIGI Copyright Custom Create Heat Protection Spray has been my favorite lately because it leaves my hair feeling strong and unbreakable and because it smells amazing.

I’ll be switching over to a planet-friendly dry shampoo.

Because I’ll be stretching out the time in between hair washes, I’ll need my dry shampoo more than ever. Love Beauty and Planet Radical Refresher Citrus Peel Uplifting Dry Shampoo is a cruelty-free, silicone-free, and dye-free option that works just as well as my current dry shampoo faves. I’ll be cutting down my shower time and waste less water. All while supporting a planet-conscious brand that prioritizes my hair and the earth at the same time.
