Tips and Tricks | Cosmetology School, Lawrence, KSTips for Maintaining Healthy Hair

Beautiful hair is healthy hair. That’s why clients at our Z Hair Academy student salons often ask how they can better care for their hair once they leave the salon chair. In addition to student salons, Z Hair Academy is an institution with four cosmetology schools in Kansas and Missouri. Below, we list our top three recommendations for maintaining healthy hair.

Rethink Hair Washing

If you wash your hair every day, stop! Over-washing strips away natural oils and proteins that keep your hair and scalp healthy. An educator at our Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence, Kansas, recommends washing your hair no more than three times per week. When washing your hair, try to:

  • Wash with lukewarm water, which is less harsh on your hair.
  • Focus shampooing efforts on your scalp, which is what produces oil and sheds skin cells.
  • Focus conditioner from the mid-length to ends of your hair.
  • Thoroughly rinse your hair to avoid any product buildup.

Limit Harshness

Hot tools like blowdryers and straighteners can damage your hair. Let your hair air dry as often as you can. There are many products to enhance your hair’s natural texture as it dries, which can produce a beautiful, effortless style. When you do use hot tools, avoid using the higher heat settings, which are usually unnecessary.

Use Protection

Although heat can be damaging to hair, there are various ways to protect your hair. Another educator at our Z Hair Academy cosmetology school in Lawrence recommends using a heat protectant every time you blow-dry, straighten or curl your hair. Additionally, if you’re going to be in the sun for a long period of time, keep your hair protected from UV rays by wearing a hat.
