Behind every gorgeous mane are hero products and we have an array of the best available to help the gal who likes to go the extra mile to keep her tresses in tip-top shape. Like that gal, you don’t need a glam squad to get IG-worthy hair everyday—No, all you need is a handful of good hair habits to maintain your hair’s happiness. Take note of these seven habits that’ll get you one step closer to your hair #goals.
1. HEALTHY HAIR STARTS FROM THE SCALP
With a healthy scalp comes healthy hair so ignoring an sensitive, flaky, oily, or dry scalp is a major no-no. Use the appropriate product for your scalp issue, such a clarifying shampoo that removes build-up and dandruff or even a scalp scrub or exfoliator. For extra scalp TLC, massage invigorating oils like peppermint or olive into it to hydrate and stimulate healthy hair growth. Luxe Hair Concepts Favorite Scalp Product: We are totally crushing on the Christophe Robin Cleansing Purifying Scrub with Sea Salt at the moment as it deeply cleanses and purifies the scalp while restoring balance to the hair.
2. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!
While most of us have no problem washing and conditioning our hair, it’s super easy to forget about maintaining daily moisture. Avoid dryness and brittleness by moisturizing your strands with creams, oils, butters, or even hair mists.
Incorporate this habit into your life by tending to your strands in the morning and/or night, depending on how dry your tresses are.
Our go-to product is the Kerastase 8H Magic Night Serum. Not only does this serum hydrate and restore the moisture in your hair, it also protects your hair from damage whilst you sleep and ensures you'll wake with smooth and shiny hair.
3. Incorporate a Hair Mask into your routine
Contrary to popular belief, deep conditioners should be used way more often than not. Deep conditioner treatments restore and repair hair from everyday pollution and damage. Try making it a Sunday spa day ritual: pamper your mane with a thorough cleansing, smoothing conditioner, and hydrating hair mask.
4. Trim regularly
This is a classic tip and something that we are sure you've heard your Stylist say to you before. A quick trim instantly spruces up strands allowing your mane to flourish in growth and all-around fabulousness. Cutting those split ends allows your hair to grow longer and stronger - don’t fall for the "I'm growing it so I won't cut" this is a false economy and doesn’t work in the long term.

5. Give your heat tools a rest
Too much of a good thing isn’t always so great, and that goes for heat styling on your hair. Excessive heat can do serious damage to your strands, especially hair that may already be compromised from colour. But for the glam-obsessed, a heat-free lifestyle 100% of the time is unrealistic. An easy way to cut back? Less frequent blow-drys—get into the habit of allowing your hair to air dry. Every little bit of effort counts!
We love the True Me Original Styler for those who are cautious when it comes to heat styling as the tool can be temperature controlled - perfect for when you might be straightening your hair every day.
6. Make Vitamins your friend
The exciting thing about Vitamins is that a lot of them nourish the whole body, in addition to working wonders for your mane. Vitamins and supplements like Biotin, iron, and Vitamin C help support hair growth, reduce hair loss, and increase hair strength.
7. Create a hair care routine (and stick to it)
Just like a skin-care routine, to achieve results for our hair it's important to create a routine that works. Like everything, practise makes perfect and it will take a few try and tests. Create a healthy hair regimen that fits your lifestyle then stick to it. A deep-conditioner treatment every once in a while won’t cut it, but remember— a little consistency goes a long way with our locks.
