So we all know great hair starts at the roots, taking a hair supplement is always a great idea to keep that mane long and strong, and growing! But what do you use to maintain that long and strong mane?

Behold the answer here! These four products are the most simple steps you can take to prevent heat damage, split ends, and even dandruff if that is something you suffer from!

Let’s start with what you use in the shower. A great shampoo and conditioner can go a long way if you purchase the right one. Now I have purchased all the wrong ones in the past, so I can speak from experience. A couple years ago I made a commitment to using only shampoo free of sulfates, which changed my hair dramatically. It actually GREW past my shoulders. And it didn’t stop there.

This shampoo is not only sulfate free, but will leave your hair feeling shiny and soft. Like a fuzzy blanket soft. I’m obsessed.

And of course, follow up with a great conditioner, like this one here. Lock in all that moisture and keep those ends going strong.

This Aveda detangler is my other miracle tool. Spray a little of this evenly on wet hair to protect your locks from scorching hot hair tools we’re all guilty of using. Isn’t it funny that we torture our hair by applying extreme heat to it, then buy another product to protect it against that same heat? Ah, c’est la vie.

I also switched over to a “wet brush” after hearing great things about them for years. It was actually an unintentional purchase, I was in Tuesday Morning and happened to spot one on clearance in the hair aisle. So I thought “what the heck, it’s now or never”! And I haven’t looked back. I actually cringe when I think about all the hair I’ve ripped out of my head with previous unworthy brushes. Ok maybe they weren’t unworthy, but they weren’t helping my hair in any way. And I’m not patient enough nor do I have the time to “let my hair dry and then brush”. Anyway, like I said I did purchase mine at Tuesday Morning and I’ve seen them a handful of times at Home Goods, but here is my exact brush on eBay as well.

And there you have it! The easiest, low maintenance way to get every day great hair. These are very simple tips that can save you a lot of time, money and hassle in the long run.
