Having a bad hair day? Yep, we’ve all been there, and we’re all guilty of neglecting our locks and not quite following the correct procedures in order to keep it healthy and luscious for longer. Here at Zappzi, we want to change that, or at least help you out with some really easy tips and tricks to ensuring that your hair is as healthy as can be. Keep on reading to discover our top 5 tips to healthier hair…
1. Keep on Top of Your Hairstyling Tools
Let’s start with hair tools, the answer to all our styling scenarios and quite literally the key to perfectly preened hair. Hmm, this is all well and good if you are buying the correct hair tools and replacing them as frequently as needed. We’re not saying you need to purchase a new hairdryer every single year, but the older your hair tools get, the less they are likely to perform well on your hair, in fact they could be contributing towards extreme heat damage in the long run. Technology has advanced and there are some incredible hair tools out there that work towards fighting heat damage and performing quicker as a result; including the Dyson Airwrap and Supersonic Hairdryer.
2. Only Use Dry Shampoo When It’s Necessary
We don’t want to be the bearer of bad news but, dry shampoo shouldn’t be used any more than once or twice a week. But hear us out, there is a perfectly logical explanation as to why, and it’s simply because your scalp can’t hack it. The more you use dry shampoo, the more build-up is stored on your scalp which can cause inflammation and a very irritating itch. So, if you’re ever feeling too lazy to wash your hair properly, remember the consequences that your poor scalp will have to face. ☹
3. Take It Easy with The Towel
The first thing we all tend to do when we jump out of the shower is throw our hair up into a towel and vigorously rub it until it’s substantially dried, again, we’re all guilty of it. Did you know that doing this with your towel actually causes damage to your hair? Aggressively rubbing your hair can result in weaker, dryer and frizzier hair due to the friction against your cuticles, which could eventually break the hair. The simple solution is to pat your hair dry, its far gentler and will be extremely worthwhile in the long run.
4. Get regular Trims
Trying to grow your hair, and believe that the only way to do this is by avoiding the hairdresser? Well in actual fact, this will have the complete opposite effect. Regular haircuts enable healthy hair growth, if you leave your hair to develop split ends, it will become thinner and eventually snap off. Unfortunately, there is no way of replacing it without chopping more hair off than you originally needed in the first place, so a trim every 6 to 8 weeks will do the trick.

5. Keep it Cool
Did you know that washing your hair in a hot shower strips it of volume, resulting in limp and lifeless locks? The simple solution is to ensure that the water is just about warm for when you are shampooing your hair, this is perfect for the payoff you need in order to clean your hair to perfection, but also retain the volume. When it comes to conditioning, the best temperature is actually cold. Cold water locks in the nutrients your hair needs, resulting in beautifully shiny locks.
