What new habits have you tried to implement in 2019? Any sticking yet or have they already fallen by the wayside? As we close out the first month of 2019, we want to address healthy hair habits for all textures and styles.

Hair is growing out of the top of your head so if it’s not being cared for on the ends then you will inevitably end up with brittle and fragile ends prone to splitting.

But, be reminded that getting regular trims is not only for the purpose of getting something new and fun but also to maintain healthy ends.
