When it comes to keeping hair healthy, it’s all in the preparation, especially before styling. Though it can create sleek, straight strands or bouncy curls that many of us aren’t fortunate enough to wake up with naturally, styling often comes with the risk of damage; both physical damage from towel drying and brushing, and heat damage from drying, straightening, curling or waving can seriously break follicles and dry out locks to leave them limp and lacklustre, putting all of your hard work to waste. To ensure the best possible finish, follow our 6 easy steps to prep and protect your hair.
Step 1: Oil
A hair oil is a great way to intensely moisturise dry strands and is super effective in adding shine. Many, like the Aveda Nutriplenish Multi-use Hair Oil are packed fully of naturally nourishing ingredients that penetrate strands to repair them from the inside out. Most hair oils can be applied at any point in your haircare regime, making them a great go to and easy to use even days before you plan on styling.
