10 Hacks for the Softest Hair Ever
Summer is just around the corner, and we know that when it comes to prepping your hair, you are on it. Whether you're going for beautiful beach waves or debating a creative dye job, prioritizing soft hair should always be at the top of your list. We can't be more excited to see the sun come out to play, but we're not going to let it ruin our hair fun. Try these 10 tips to keep your hair super soft all summer long.
1. Eat Right
You hear it again and again, and we have to agree: To achieve the best hair, you have to eat the best foods. Make sure you are consuming foods with Omega-3 fatty acids and protein for shiny, full hair. Oh, and don't forget to take your vitamins too. (via Brit + Co)
2. Aloe Vera
This little plant is magic for your hair. Not only does it promote growth, but it also conditions like no other. Aloe also has properties similar to keratin, which helps retain water and moisture. (via Brit + Co)
3. Cold Rinse
Let ACV treat your hair like the princess it is. With one rinse, it will help prevent split ends and breakage, reduce frizz, improve porosity and naturally condition your hair. Seriously, it's like magic. (via Hello Natural)
Cotton is the way to go to keep hair soft. After showering, lightly squeeze the excess water out and then tie a t-shirt around your head, letting your hair dry while you complete the rest of your look. It's perfect for the #lazygirl in all of us. (via Refinery29)
6. Air-Dry That Hair
It just makes sense: The less heat you use, the softer your hair will be. There are plenty of ways to achieve a glam look without blowdrying. Start with a great conditioner for a smooth finish. If your locks get easily tangled, use a light conditioning or detangler spray to help with your ends. (image via Element5 Digital/Unsplash)
If your locks are feeling a little dull, consider swapping your go-to products for some cleaner alternatives. They'll keep your hair looking healthy all summer! (via Brit + Co)
8. Hair Mask
When your hair is screaming for moisture, give it some new life by using a DIY hair mask once a week. Products like almond milk, coconut oil or avocado can soften and strengthen each strand. (via Hello Natural)
The ends of your strands are the most drying of your mane. Take control by using a leave-in conditioner. Focus a lot more product at the ends of your hair, but don't forget your roots. Soft, healthy hair originates at your scalp. (via Brit + Co)
Trims will save your hair from becoming brittle and ragged. Split ends actually impede hair growth and prevent you hair from retaining the moisture your hair needs. Plus, it doesn't hurt to get a new style every once in a while! (via Brit + Co)
We can't wait to try every single one of the summer beauty looks that are trending right now, and healthy hair will always be stylish. If you've got dry, brittle, or dull tresses from the last year, try one or all of these tips for soft hair all summer.
