As everyone with some body or curl in their hair knows, April showers bring May humidity, and if you don’t want your hair to be a frizzy, fly-away mess, you need to tame your mane and protect it from the forces of nature. Fortunately, FHI Heat has you covered with tools and products that will do the hard work for you. But interestingly, there are also some home remedies you can do right in your own home that will moisturize and smooth out your hair.
Although it certainly seems counterintuitive that to keep your hair healthier you would actually wash it LESS frequently, this is absolutely true. Your body creates natural oils in your scalp that keep your hair moisturized and supple, but if you wash with shampoo every day, you are stripping your hair of its natural protection.
Wash your hair just a few times a week, and you can experiment to see which schedule works right with your particular hairstyle. If you feel like it looks greasy between washings, you can also supplement with dry shampoo.
The temperature of the water you use while washing your hair can also have an effect on the health of your hair. Warm water will eradicate built-up oil and dirt, so start with that. Lukewarm water is best for shampooing and rinsing, as well as conditioning. Finally, cold water is perfect to rinse your hair, seal in moisture, and hydrate your scalp. Taking the time to think about water temperature will help your hair in the long run.
The road to healthy, hydrated hair travels through your pantry. There are a surprising number of ingredients that you can use to condition your hair, without even heading out to a salon. Coconut oil has long been touted for hair and skin and can keep your hair from losing protein. Start with a tiny amount to avoid creating a buildup, and massage the oil through your hair. Another quick home treatment is an egg yolk and olive mask, which will work to reduce the frizz. After letting it sit for 30 minutes, wash it off with lukewarm water. If you have damaged, split ends, surprisingly beer will help the follicles to repair. Both the protein and the sugar in the beer work together to do this. After shampooing, apply the beer and leave it on for 2-3 minutes.
To supplement your home remedies, and take it to a more professional level, we recommend several FHI Heat products to keep your hair moisturized and supple. Try our Satin Finish Conditioning Treatment, which is a silk protein and hydrolyzed silk residue-free conditioning treatment that will repair and protect your hair from heat and environmental damage.

By using this non-greasy formula, you will be able to equalize your hair’s ability to absorb and retain moisture, ensuring that you are protecting it from breaking and splitting.
