3 Easy Things to Start Doing TODAY for Great Hair

Lessons, growth, change, improvement

These are 3 simple and easy things to do to give yourself your best hair ever this year!

  1. Brush it out before you wash it! Wet hair is more elastic than dry hair, so if you wait to comb it out when it’s wet, you could be snapping and stretching out your hair in a way that could cause damage. Brushing out your hair before you wash it not only smoothes out your hair, but it helps loosen up any build-up or dry skin too! *if your hair is very curly, this isn’t always recommended. I’m not a curly hair expert so I’d recommend asking your stylist how to best prep curly hair for washing!
  2. Instead of thoroughly rinsing out all of the conditioner, leave the tiniest bit behind to provide some slip to your hair. For example, if you usually spend 15 seconds rinsing out your conditioner, next time only rinse it for about 13 seconds. You can figure out the right amount through trial and error, but a bit of conditioner left behind will soften and protect the hair.
  3. Work a deep conditioner or hair mask into your weekly routine. These are different than regular daily conditioner and can go so far in really restoring the health of your hair.

What do you recommend for dry shampoo alternatives? My favorites have recently been in the news for causing cancer…Yikes!

I wash my hair 1-2 times per week. I typically use a hair mask rather than a conditioner. My hair seems to do better with this. Do you think this is okay to do? My hair is pretty frizzy otherwise. Thank you!

Kate – how many Clare V bags, Bagging Rights totes and $150 sweaters would equal the vet bill for Grits? Please enlighten us about how much it’s going to cost in terms we can understand.

If those are the values you are interested in, I can tell you it’ll be quite a few of each. Thanks for your concern.

I was hoping you would answer the question about the dry shampoo that Jennifer M asked, yet once again you bypassed genuine questions to respond to snarky comments.

It would be nice if you responded to questions that we ask you. I will no longer be following you.
