If you’ve ever wondered how your favourite beauty blogger gets their hair looking amazing, we have too! We thought it’d be interesting to find out for ourselves, so we decided to reach out to a few beauty bloggers (who we had major hair crushes for) to find out what their personal healthy hair care tips are to keeping their hair looking on point.
Jen Lou Meredith
“We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so it’s logical to take advantage of that time from a hair care perspective.
“For the last year, I’ve been using a silk sleep cap to keep my hair in top condition. It stops my hair rubbing against the rough cotton of my pillowcase (avoiding breakages which accumulate over time), and also keeps it nice and neat for the morning so I don’t have to spend lots of time brushing it (as brushing can also cause breakages if you don’t use the right brush).
You can also use a silk or satin pillowcase if you don’t want to sleep with something on your head!”
“At school I was always known as ‘the girl with the hair’, and had my first ever hair cut at just 8 weeks old. My huge, dense, coarse crowning glory relies on lashings of moisture, very little heat styling (once a week ONLY!), and the weight of length to keep everything flowing.
“The more moisture the better, so products like the nourishing collection from 72 are guardian angels in a bottle.
Shannon from UK Curly Girl
“My top hair tip is and always will be related to how you wear your hair whilst sleeping! This is so important and the key to maintaining your hair between wash days. At night you should be sleeping on a satin pillowcase, this is great for keeping in moisture (for face and hair) it isn’t as harsh as cotton so when tossing and turning throughout the night you won’t find stray hairs on your pillow.
“The softness of the satin allows your hair to just slide when moving around, therefore, preventing breakage and that dreaded frizzy morning hair. I also like to place my curls up into a ‘pineapple’ which is when you bring your hair up and forward into a high ponytail (tying the scrunchie or hair tie around your hair once).
This is my secret to keeping my curls defined and soft for so long after my wash day!”
Vicki from Honest Mum
“My tip is to trim a little of your hair every 6 weeks to ensure any split ends are taken care of. This actually promotes growth too. Hair and beauty is also dependant on what you eat so keep your food choices healthy and consume good fats for nourished locks and skin.”
Georgina from She Might Be Loved
“When you hair needs some extra TLC I like to sleep in hair masks overnight and repeat this weekly until my hair feels better.
“Usually I’ll put the mask on around 4/5pm so by the time I go to sleep it’s dry and I don’t cause a mess on my pillow. If it’s still wet I’ll just wrap it up in a plastic bag or sleep on a towel.”
Bex from BexCxmpbell
“Since was around 13 I’ve used heat on my hair this meaning it’s dry & damaged. I also use bleach regularly keep my hair on trend!
“To keep it looking healthier, non-frizzy & soft I apply coconut oil to wet hair, wrap with cling film and apply a light heat from my hair drier for around 20 mins. Rise and dry hair, as usual, you will definitely notice a difference!”
India from Love India Moon
“I’ve always had thick healthy hair, and only a year ago did I decide to have a huge change. I had my hair bleached and cut extremely short for the first time, which was the best thing I ever did.
“However, because of how much I style my hair it can sometimes feel extremely dry. Which is why I’m always on the hunt for some amazing repair masks and shampoos that leave my hair feeling super smooth. I mean who doesn’t love having soft hair?
I’m super happy I found 72 hair as after months of trying lots of different hair masks, I’ve fallen in love with their repairing and moisturising hair mask. I use it twice a week and It leaves my hair feeling incredible. So that’s my little tip if you want to have healthy, soft and silky hair!”
Allie from The Friday Girl
“I started dying my hair when I was about 12 or 13 and I wish, wish, wish that my parents had of stopped me! I’ve always been ‘mousey’ brown and hated it so I’ve switched between dark and bleach for about 10 years now with the occasional pink and crazy Cheryl Cole bright red thrown in there.
“My hair is finally in fairly good condition after a few trips to a really fantastic salon over the past two years but I love to look after it myself at home. I give it all the moisture it can get so the 72 Hair Intense Moisture Duo is my lifesaver.”
