5 Resolutions for Healthy Hair in 2021

The start of the new year often brings along ambitious resolutions and goals for some people. Even if you’re not a big “resolutions person,” it’s still a good time to reflect and mark the new year as an opportunity to better yourself. We always believe that self-care should be a top priority in your everyday life. If taking better care of your hair is on your list this year, we have some tips to help you out! These hair care resolutions will guide you to healthier, stronger, and beautiful hair in 2021! 

Stick to One Product Line 

While it may seem like a good idea to sample products from different product lines to reap the benefits from each, it’s actually optimal to stick within one line. Rather than trying to be a master mixologist of different shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in products, find one line that addresses all your hair concerns. Product lines are typically formulated to work well together, so it’s typically best to stick to one system that suits your hair type. Your stylist will be able to help you find a product line that’s best for you! 

Embrace Your Natural Hair

It’s no secret that heat tools can cause damage to your hair. Understandably, we all still use them quite often, as it’s the easiest way to style our hair. This year, make it a priority to embrace your natural hair texture. Instead of blowdrying, try letting your hair air dry. A leave-in conditioner can help with frizziness. Instead of using a curling iron, try braiding or twisting your hair in a loose bun overnight. These little changes can make a big difference in the overall health of your hair! 

Opt for Low Tension Styles

In addition to minimizing heat, you’ll also want to try out styles that are considered “low-tension” for your hair. Pulling your hair back into a high tight ponytail or ballerina bun every day can put stress on your hair and ultimately cause breakage. Instead, you may want to try a loose low pony or wearing your hair half up half down to reduce tension. 

Deep Condition Often

This one is very important, especially if you do use heat tools on your hair. Regularly using a deep conditioner helps to hydrate the hair, while strengthening and repairing the strands. It’s also especially crucial for color-treated hair to help maintain a silky, soft head of hair. Aveda offers a variety of deep conditioning products. Ask your stylist which would be best for your specific hair type! 

Schedule Regular Salon Visits 

Lastly, the best thing you can do for your hair is schedule regular salon appointments! Trimming your hair on a consistent basis helps to minimize dead ends and prevent any further breakage. Check out our recent blog post to learn more about how often you should have your haircut
