4 Steps to Shiny, Healthy Hair

by Rachel Hayes, Daily Makeover

The key to creating any gorgeous hairstyle is to start with healthy, shiny hair. Guest editor and NYC salon owner Sam Brocato shares his best beauty tips on how to score healthy hair even after months of winter abuse.

Step 1: Lather Up Gently

Basic winter hair care starts with a gentle shampoo that won’t strip hair of moisture.

Try to shampoo less than 3 times a week and use a dry shampoo in between washings.

If you simply can’t part with a favorite shampoo or daily wash, blend two parts shampoo with one part conditioner for added moisture.

    Same thing happened to me! I’m super curious because I was JUST thinking about haircare… nooo the suspense! :P

    I like that tip about the hair mask … giht give it a try!

    The thing I cant do is not wash my hair everyday — its bad for my hair I know but I just cant do the greasy look at all. :)

      Hi Nina,

      When I’m working out consistently I have to wash every day too (can’t stand a sweaty scalp). One thing I like to do is skip the shampoo and wash with water or a light conditioner (in place of the shampoo) instead. It really helps with cutting down the dryness.

      • NINA says:

        My cousin told me thats what she does — shampoo every other day and conditioner everyday … im going to give that a spin this weekend and see how it goes! :)

        Thanks, Karen!

    Great tips! I usually can’t go one day without washing my hair because it get’s so greasy(SO annoying) Even dry shampoo does not help!! So I try to be extra diligent in the other categories!

    I’ve been using Aussie 3-minute miracle about 3x a week and it’s been really moisturizing without weighing down my hair.
