Recently I have been reading on my favorite bloggers’ sites that they barely wash their hair. Like, Cara Loren recently blogged that she doesn’t wash it for a week, and her hair is always so gorgeous! It blows my mind! How can people not wash their hair yet it still looks that good? I found out a few of their secrets, and today Ill share them with you. So, what exactly happens when you quit washing your hair so often?

  1. You fall in love with dry shampoo: For people who go a while between lathers, dry shampoo is their bff. They rely on this miracle spray to keep their hair less oily and smelling nice! It also makes it easy to style.download
  2. It will be easier to style: Every time I go to a salon to get my hair done for events like prom and homecoming, the stylist always tells me to come with “dirty hair”. This is because it holds the style better! Clean hair is slippery.
  3. Less split ends: Washing your hair is rough on it, between the lathering rinsing and repeating. It also dries out your ends, which leads them to split, so washing less = less split ends!
  4. Your color will last longer: If you color or highlight your hair, you know that washing dulls your color over time. So, washing less = longer lasting color.

Now, I am not sure that I can go a week without washing my hair, but I could go a few days to see if I reap any of these benefits!

Obvious actions like drying and straightening your hair can cause damage and split ends, but did you know there are a lot of other unknown ways that you’re damaging your hair?  Surprisingly, there are multiple actions that seem harmless, but can cause permanent damage to your hair.  Being aware of these things are extremely important.  I will break down a few of the most unhealthy hair habits to give you your most healthy hair yet.Chelsea Crockett- damaged hair

  • Be gentle when you brush wet hair.  Brushing through wet hair can cause damage and split ends.  It can also pull out a lot of hair, causing a loss in volume.  Start at the bottom with a wide-toothed comb and work your way to the scalp.  This will help prevent breakage and hair loss.
  • Don’t wash your hair too much!  Shampooing your hair can too often can wash away your hair’s natural moisture.  This moisture gives your hair that healthy, shiny look!  You don’t want to wash that away!
  • Ponytails create breakage.  Wearing a ponytail is always a cute and easy hair style, but wearing one every day with a tight pony tail holder can cause breakage.  This can even cause permanent damage!

Don’t commit one of these hair crimes!

I’m sure many of you have heard some ridiculous beauty statements that either seem too good to be true or completely false!  It can be hard to decide whether or not these beauty myths are true.  Let’s break them down and get to the facts!Chelsea Crockett- washing hair

  1. “Washing your hair every day is bad for it.”  MOSTLY FALSE.  If you have oily hair, it is understandable to wash your hair every day.  It won’t do any harm to it.  If your hair is coarse or dry, you may want to wash your hair every other day.  Shampoo can dry out hair, so you don’t want to make your hair dryer than it already is.
  2. “Hair grows back thicker after you shave it.”  FALSE.  Whenever we shave our leg hair, it cuts through the middle of the hair creating a straight line.  This creates the illusion of thicker leg hair even though it’s the same size and same color.  Nothing is different!
  3. “Putting makeup on zits makes them worse.”  TRUE.  If you’re trying to cover up a pesky zit with an oil based or heavy cream concealer, you’re probably going to make it worse!  When you pack on the makeup your pores cannot breathe, therefore collecting more dirt.  Try covering it up with a light powder or go all natural!
  4. “Split ends can be repaired.”  Unfortunately, FALSE.  There are many hair care products out today claiming they can repair split ends.  Well, I’m sad to report that these beauty brands are telling you tales.  The only true way to banish split ends is to cut them off!
  5. “Chocolate, pizza, and French fries will give me zits!”  FALSE.  Indulging in greasy food every once in a while will do no harm.  It’s your regular diet that will determine whether or not you have nice skin.  If your entire diet consists of chocolate, pizza, and French fries, then it’s very possible that you will have acne.  Enjoy these types of food minimally.

BOOM, busted!!  Now you know the truth about these tricky beauty myths!

I put raw egg in my hair today, ladies. Can you believe it? It is actually SO incredibly good for your hair! The hair mask that I tried tonight combines egg yolk, honey, and olive oil! Sounds kind of yucky, but your hair will totally thank you!

Combine one egg yolk, one tablespoon of honey, and three tablespoons of olive oil in a small bowl. Whisk all of the ingredients together and make sure that you have a nice smooth mixture! Brush out your hair and make sure that all of the tangles are out of your hair. Apply this ooey gooey mess to the ends of your hair with your fingers. Tie your hair up into a bun to keep the mess off of your clothes. Leave the mixture in your hair for about an hour egg-honey-hair-mask chelsea crockettand then rinse it out with warm water in the shower! Shampoo and condition as you usually would. I recommend using this remedy once every two weeks just to keep your ends nice and moisturized, because when you have moisturized hair, it doesn’t break as easily! That means longer, more luscious hair for you!

If you are brave enough to test this fun hair mask comment below and tell me what you think!

XOXO, Chels

Split ends are such a drag!  They happen out of nowhere and leave your hair looking dull and flat.  There are so many products out there that claim to “fix” your split ends, but in the end it doesn’t do much.  Taking good care of your hair is the first step to preventing and banishing split ends for good.  By following these simple tricks and tips, your hair will be looking fabulous in no time!

  1. Be gentle when you brush your hair.  Start at the roots and work your way up to the scalp.  If you start at the scalp, you are more likely to rip hair out and cause breakage.
  2. Always condition your ends!
  3. Do not scrub and rub a towel through your hair to dry it.  When you rub the ends of your hair together it causes your hair to knot.  Instead, squeezeChelsea Crockett- drying hair with towel the ends to soak up the water.
  4. When straightening your hair use a comb to comb through each strand before going over it with the straightener.  Sometimes your hair can clump together and the heat will make it break.
  5. Start at the roots and wrap your hair around the curling iron when curling your hair.  When you start at the ends of your hair, the heat sits there the longest.  Try exposing the ends of your hair to the least amount of heat as possible.
  6. Blow dry your hair when necessary.  Let it air dry as much as possible!
  7. Don’t forget to get regular trims to keep your hair healthy!

Taking proper care of your hair is so important!  Although it might be a lot of work, the results are worth it.  Love your hair!

Love,

Chelsea

You love your long hair and hate to cut it, but those split ends have gotten out of control!  Oh the struggle of being a girl.  I know haircuts can be scary, but trust me it will benefit you in the long run!  Check out these red flag signs to see if you’re ready for a haircut.

  1. Check out your ends to see if they are getting frayed, frizzy, or split.  This will cause your hair to look dull.  If your hair has lost its shine, then it’s probably time for a haircut.
  2. As your hair grows out, it starts to lose its shape.  If you start to notice that your layers are gone and/or your hair is becoming difficult to style, then a trim is much needed!
  3. If your hair is curly, watch to see if your hair “bounces.”  If your curls have lost their spring, this means your hair is lacking moisture and is due for Chelsea Crockett- naturally curly haira cut.
  4. It’s time for a change!  Do you ever get bored of your daily hair routine or think your look is “typical”?  It’s so easy to spruce up your hair with a slight trim or dramatic cut.

Getting your hair cut isn’t that bad!  It’s actually healthy and can help your hair grow.  Keep your hair healthy and happy!

Love,

Chelsea
