Today’s Healthy Hair Tip: Using Accessories for Stronger Hair
Hair accessories are an easy way to take an otherwise boring hairstyle from drab to fab. Whether it’s a basic headband, sophisticated ponytail holder, or small clip with some extra blink, I’m all for it!
Unfortunately some of the hair candy we love may be damaging our hair. I know, I know, not the news us hair accessory lovers want to hear. Not to worry though, this post is all about the (many) options of hair accessories that don’t cause havoc on hair. Why make the switch to less-damaging hair accessories? By decreasing breakage, you’re keeping your hair strong. Stronger hair is fuller, more manageable, and healthier overall. Check out the list of accessories that will leave your hair strong and you happy.
Head wraps – head wraps are not only trendy, they are also one of the most non-damaging hair accessory options. In fact, many head wraps that cover most of your hair not only cause less damage, they can actually protect your hair as well. Head wraps are also a great choice because they are usually made with a soft, non-snagging fabric, aren’t tight on the head, easy to get on/off, and are super comfortable!
Headbands – headbands are another hair accessory that, depending on the type, don’t cause breakage or damage. Look for ones that are non-constraining without sharp edges, added hardware, or any other parts that may snag or tangle hair.
Clips – Claw clips and other large clips are a fantastic way to keep your hair up without pulling it too tight. It’s important to choose a clip with a smooth finish and one that doesn’t break hair when it’s taken out.
Scrunchies – The scrunchie might be one of the only reasons that your hair misses the 90’s because the scrunchie is one of the most non-damaging hair accessories of all time. Marc Jacobs has a new scruchie-ish product on the market, but for those who aren’t ready to bring the trend back, they are perfect for keeping your hair up at night.
Hair ties – For most, even if we switch to using less damaging hair accessories, a ponytail every now and then in inevitable. Many hair accessory manufactures are creating better products and hair ties like these are a great alternative to the everyday elastic. They not only look cute in your hair, they also work well around the wrist so are easy to literally keep on hand.
Absolute no-no’s – There are a few things to avoid at all costs when it comes to hair accessories. Using rubber bands or accessories with exposed hardware are rusted or cracked, is a sure way to increase hair breakage and decrease its strength.
Using one or more of the non-damaging hair accessories listed above will get you one step closer to healthier, stronger hair. Another way, of course, is by adding the Ovation Advanced Cell Therapy System to your daily routine. For more information about our products see our website.
Enjoy stronger hair!
