6 Hairstylist Tips for Strong, Healthy Hair

Shiny, strong, healthy hair doesn’t have to be something we only dream of. To get some expert tips on hair health, we spoke with Lena Stanley, a hairstylist and salon manager of Great Clips in Thousand Oaks, California, who has been helping clients keep their hair healthy for more than 25 years.

How to Keep Hair Healthy and Strong

1. Feed Your Hair

While we all may know that eating healthy is an important part of keeping our bodies strong, our expert also swears that nutrition is her secret to healthy hair. “Diet is key,” says Stanley. “The beauty, strength and shine all starts from within.” Her advice: “Pump up the protein, eat a lot of fruits and veggies and drink plenty of water. Taking supplements with omega-3s, iron and zinc is also important.” Note: As with all supplements, we recommend talking to your doctor before taking a new one.


2. Scrub Your Scalp

This may seem like an obvious tip, but the trick is in the types of products we use. “Keeping our hair and scalp clean helps to unclog pores, which promotes hair growth,” Stanley explains. Especially if you color your hair, she adds, “try using cleansing products that are sulfate-free. They are less stripping and will extend the life of your color.”


3. Say Goodbye to Your Towel

We get it; there’s something really fun about twisting your towel into an after-shower headdress. We do it, too! However, as we rid our hair of that moisture, we’re also ridding it of its strength.“Rubbing wet hair with a towel can put stress on the hair and even cause breakage and split ends,” Stanley explains. Try wrapping wet hair in something softer like a T-shirt after washing and let it absorb the moisture.
