haircare resolutions to transform your hair in 2024
new year’s resolutions aren’t always the easiest to keep but knowing you’re only a few habits away from transforming your locks might just be the incentive you need to finally tick them all off. so, grab a pen and paper and let’s make some haircare resolutions you’ll want to stick to. new hair, new you!
DON'T NEGLECT YOUR SCALP
taking care of your scalp is essential for healthy hair growth, preventing dandruff, and balancing sebum production. it doesn’t have to be a whole new step in your haircare routine either.
keep your hair clean and your scalp healthy with our moisturising shampoo bar. it features cedarwood, jojoba oil, and bergamot to regulate oil glands, lock in moisture, and improve blood circulation for more nutrition. your tresses will be thriving in 2024.
EAT A BALANCED DIET
our hair is mostly made up of a protein called keratin which is naturally produced by the body. for it to produce enough keratin for healthy hair, we need to eat a good amount of protein, vitamins, minerals, and amino acids. bon appétit.
DITCH THE HARSH INGREDIENTS
repeat after us: “my hair deserves better”. here at alott we prioritise clean, naturally derived ingredients without parabens, SLS, silicones, artificial colours or fragrances.
ALWAYS REMEMBER TO USE CONDITIONER
conditioner isn’t the optional haircare step most people think it is. when we wash our hair with warm water, the hair cuticles raise and let moisture escape. we need conditioners rich in moisturising ingredients to rehydrate the hair afterwards, preventing it from becoming brittle, reducing breakage and split ends.
for the softest swoosh, try the nourishing conditioner bar. with broccoli seed oil moisturising, conditioning, and protecting the hair, combined with cedarwood and bergamot, you’ll never forget to condition your hair again.
TURN DOWN THE WATER TEMPERATURE WHEN WASHING YOUR HAIR
did you know that the temperature at which you wash your hair can affect its overall health? the hotter the water, the more moisture will be stripped. lowering the temperature even slightly will make a difference, but if you’re after more life-altering results, dial it back to lukewarm. and if you can brave it, we recommend blasting your hair with cold water when you’re done to help close the hair cuticles.
PROTECT YOUR HAIR WHEN USING HOT TOOLS
look out for your hair when using hot styling tools by applying a heat protector first. heat strips the hair of moisture and damages the hair shaft, but with a heat protector, you can create a barrier between the heat and your hair to minimise the damage.
for those much-needed days off from hot styling tools, create effortless, and most importantly heatless, beachy waves with our sea salt spray.
EXPERIMENT WITH A NEW HAIRSTYLE
you might love what you’ve got going on at the top of your head right now, but it was once just a new hairstyle that you were trying out. alott matte hair clay is extremely versatile and lets you experiment with everything from textured quiffs to middle parts whilst adding volume and definition.
MAKE MORE CONSCIOUS CHOICES
you don’t need to throw out your entire haircare collection for this New Year’s resolution, that wouldn’t be very sustainable of you. but what you can do is make more conscious choices from this day forward such as choosing recyclable packaging, cruelty-free, vegan-friendly, or even going refillable, all of which you can do by shopping with us at alott.
