New year, new hair: TRESemmé’s guide to healthy hair

At TRESemmé, we care about your hair care needs. That’s why we’ve put together a guide to help you get healthier and gorgeous looking hair so you can feel and look your best in the new year.

Trim your hair to remove split ends

Split ends are a girl’s worst enemy. They make your hair appear uneven and dehydrated, often caused by regular blow-drying, extreme weather conditions and hair straightening. Trimming your hair every six to eight weeks is the best way to get rid of split ends. Tip: If you’re struggling to tackle uneven strands, try out these products to leave your hair shiny and healthy.

Apply a heat protection spray when heat styling

Heat styling tools like straightening irons, hairdryers and curling wands can reach up to 230°C. If you’re using these appliances on your hair without applying serum to protect it, the result will be dehydrated hair that’s more sensitive.
Tip: Before adding heat to the hair, use the TRESemmé Heat Protectant Spray to protect it against damage.

Use a hair serum

For intense moisture and shine, use a hair serum. Although they are not meant for everyday use, they work their magic by combating frizz and deeply nourishing the hair strands. Hair experts have revealed that the best way to apply a serum is directly to wet hair. Tip: Try out TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil for soft, healthy-looking and glossy hair.

Use a hair mask at least once a week

Hair masks provide intense moisture and nourishment to your hair and scalp. They’re also perfect for ‘pamper day’ as they penetrate the scalp and leaves your hair feeling silky soft. Tip: Use the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Mask Treatment once a week and apply evenly from the mid-shaft to the ends.
Leave the mask on for 3 to 5 minutes and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. The mask is designed to smooth hair, detangle knots, boost shine, add softness and tame fly-way’s – that’s 5 smoothing benefits in 1 product.​

Sleep on silk pillowcases

Silk pillowcases protect the hair cuticles by reducing friction to the hair, which can cause split ends. It also helps to maintain the hair’s natural oils. It might be time to finally ditch your cotton pillowcases for silk.

Eat a balanced diet

Your diet plays a vital role in healthier-looking tresses. Your hair is mostly made up of protein, so prepare meals with protein-rich food like eggs, meat, fish, spinach, avocadoes and beans for stronger, healthier hair

Conquer the new year by following these tips for healthier, stronger hair.
