Resolve to keep these beauty resolutions this year and make 2015 your most beautiful hair year yet!
First, and most importantly, Richard advises to trim your hair regularly. To keep those strands sexy, you should be trimming lightly every four to five weeks. Split-ends are a sure sign of unhealthy hair. Although they start at the bottom of your hair, they move up if you don't cut them off. The only solution is regular trimming. Even if you are trying to grow your hair out, regular trims are beneficial. Hair grows an average of about a half an inch a month so you won’t lose much of your length, and you'll give room for healthy strands to grow, which are much easier to maintain than damaged ones.
Next, make sure to protect your hair from heat styling. Heat damages hair. It dries it, breaks it and fries it, making it look dry, brittle and limp. Richard says it’s important to prep your tresses with a product that protects it from the harshness caused daily by blow dryers, curling irons and flat irons. His favorite product to defend against this kind of damage is Schwarzkopf’s Crystal Shine & Hold Heat Protection Shine Spray. It replenishes moisture, defends against frying, and perks up wilted strands. Richard also suggests finishing your heat-styled look with a shine serum like Diamond Color & Radiance Shine Boost Tonic for extra soft, smooth, shiny hair.
Last but not least, condition, condition, condition! Richard tells his A-list clients to deep condition weekly throughout the winter months to keep follicles strong and hair from breaking easily. Deep conditioning not only prevents and fights damage, but strengthens the hair. Even if you think you have little to no hair damage, deep conditioning is a great preventative to maintain beautiful locks. Richard recommends using Schwarzkopf Omega Repair & Moisture Supreme Hair Treatment to repair and protect your hair against everyday damage. Make sure to pay special attention to your ends when applying it, and leave it on for a minimum of two minutes before rinsing.
