1) Reduce Your Routine and Pick the Perfect Brush
You know the drill: wash, rinse, repeat. However, cleansing hair too often can strip away the natural oils that keep it healthy, thus making hair more brittle and prone to breaking. Nick suggests reducing the number of times you shampoo your hair to 3-4 times a week. In between shampoos, soak up oil with a light coat of dry shampoo on your roots and use a boar bristle brush (Nick recommends a boar hair brush like a Mason Pearson brush) to distribute hair oils from root to tip for extra natural shine and conditioning.
2) Swap out Silicone Shampoos
We’ve all heard the golden rule of getting a salon trim every six weeks to keep your hair healthy, but it isn’t always that easy! Silicone-based shampoos can make your hair ultra-shiny, but they can also prevent vital oils from accessing your strands. To boost your hairs natural conditioning abilities, Nick suggests opting for a silicone-free shampoo such as Kerastase’s Bain Crystal line. It purifies roots, rebalances hair fibers, and leaves ends smooth and polished (sans trim!).
