I will never forget when I was in high school and decided to bleach my hair for the summer. My best friend and I spent the entire day bleaching my long already blonde hair in my bathroom. As we started to blow dry my hair, it was literally falling right out. It was a total nightmare. My hair was damaged beyond repair and I felt hopeless.  After many tears and a trip to the hair dresser to chop off 8 inches of my hair and a deep condition, I learned one of my biggest life lessons.  While I sat in the salon chair crying my eyes out, I made a promise to myself that I would try my best to have healthy hair again.

Let’s face it, we live in a generation with extreme color jobs, perms, and blowout bars! It’s not a question if your hair is damaged but just how badly is it damaged. Between the tight ponytails, sun exposure, and hot iron tools, our hair is craving vitamins and healthy tips to keep it looking its best!  Whether you’re looking to prevent damage, or simply maintain healthy hair, here are 6 incredibly awesome tips!

1. Protect Your Hair

Sounds easy right? But how many times have you gone to the beach or lounged at the pool without a hot on? You can simply wear a hat or apply a natural UV protectant to keep the sun’s harmful rays from damaging your hair!

Also, think about all the chlorine full swimming pools… wear a hair cap if you do go swimming with harsh chemicals to protect your hair from there. Also, remember that rubber hair bands with metal claps might pull out or even break your hair when removed. Don’t pull your hair too tight because it can be damaging. Try to wear your hair down if possible!

2. Trim Regularly

I’m a total pro at remembering to get my hair trimmed regularly. I truly believe it’s best to get frequent trimming of split ends because they cause so much more breakage! Just a simple quarter inch trim should be the trick!  If your hair is really dry and damaged try to get it trimmed about every 4-6 weeks. As your hair becomes healthier, you can go every 2-3 months between trims!

3. Take Nature Made® Hair Skin & Nails Adult Gummies

I use Nature Made® Hair Skin & Nails Adult Gummies which may help support healthy hair, skin and nails in those deficient in biotin†. These Gummies are the only Beauty Gummies that are USP verified, so you know that what’s on the label, is what’s in the gummies. So you can get more from your Beauty Gummies.  Nature Made® Hair Skin & Nails Adult Gummies provides 2500 mcg biotin and 100 mg vitamin C per serving! Vitamin C provides antioxidant support and supports collagen synthesis†

I take 2 delicious (Mixed Berry, Cranberry, and Blueberry flavors) gummies daily to start or end my day. Nature Made® has the 1st Gummies to receive USP verification. The U.S. Pharmacopeia Convention (USP) is a third party nonprofit organization that verifies products for purity, potency, and quality! I love how they give me a little indulgence with the right amount of support. Learn more about Nature Made® and USP here!

4. Shampoo Less Frequently

Does this sound crazy? Well, it’s not. Believe it or not, you should only be shampooing your hair about 2-3 times a week.  I know we all like a good feeling of a clean scalp but shampoo takes a lot of nutrients away from our hair. If you must shampoo every day, make sure you are using a gentle shampoo and follow-up with a good natural moisturizer such as almond oil.

5. Limit the use of your styling products/hot tools

Taming your hair is best done with an arsenal of styling products- not just shampoo and conditioner, and hot tools, but one of the easiest ways to keep your hair healthy is to limit the use of those products and tools. Of course, I am not recommending to stop using them, but just to chill out on your hair. Maybe try some non-heat hairstyles, like overnight curls, or just let your locks air dry for a day.

6. Go Sulfate-free

Almost every hair stylists today will tell that a good sulfate-free shampoo is the first step to longer, healthier-looking hair. Sulfates are compounds derived from sulfuric acid which are found in most commercial shampoos.  These harmful ingredients create the suds we like when we lather them into our hair. However, those studs strip away vital natural oils that keep your hair healthy and strong. Try to avoid using any sulfate on your hair!

Just like me, most women strive to have healthy hair. None of us want over processed, dry, brittle hair that falls out every time we brush. Make sure you take away from my life lesson and use these tips in your daily hair routine! Nature Made® Hair Skin & Nails Adult Gummies provides 2500 mcg biotin† and 100 mg vitamin C per serving and may help support healthy hair, skin and nails in those deficient in biotin!†  Nature Made® Hair Skin & Nails Adult Gummies in the vitamin aisle, and bring home vitamins that has partnered with the USP, an independent 3rd party, nonprofit organization that tests its gummies for purity and potency so you get the added assurance that it has the nutrients you're seeking.
