Colab™ – Secrets to Perfect Hair in 2016

The New Year has arrived and we’re determined to have our best hair yet in 2016. Yep, this year we’re swapping broken promises and split ends for luscious locks and hair resolutions we’ll actually enjoy keeping. Are you with us? Great, because we’ve got a list of attainable hair goals (secrets to perfect hair, if you will) that are sure to give you your best hair yet!

Tokyo 200ml_CMYK1. Give your shampoo a break
If you’ve never missed that daily date with your shampoo bottle, you might not be living up to your full hair potential. The more you shampoo, the more you strip away your hair’s natural oils, and the worse your hair can look in the long run. Shampoo-dependent hair can mean easily greasy hair and besides, wouldn’t it be nice to skip a shampoo every once in a while?

Your hair goal: Try to wash your hair no more than every other day. On off days, give your hair a revamp with Colab Sheer and Invisible Dry Shampoo.

2. Embrace your curls
Instead of fighting your curls why not try embracing your natural locks for a change? You just might grow to appreciate (and, dare we say, love) your natural hair style.

Your hair goal: This January, try air drying or diffusing your curls just a few times, using a curling mousse to tame and a spritz of Colab Extreme Volume Dry Shampoo for body. We are pretty sure you’ll be addicted to your gorgeous natural spirals in no time!

Hair accessories are basically the shoes and handbags of the hair world, and they can instantly elevate your hairstyle. A sparkly barrette or luxe headband can take your go-to ‘do from drab to fab by adding visual interest and can also serve as one heck of a conversation starter.

Your hair goal: Try at least one new hair accessory this month. Whether you play around with bobby pins or try a stunning vintage-inspired bun pin, it’s time to take your accessory game to the next level.

4. Get creative with your styling
It’s so easy to get stuck in a style rut and wear the same look all the time. After all, we’re pretty loyal to our go-to ponytails and our beloved blowouts.

Your hair goal: Vow to try at least one cool new look each month.

5. Quit frying your hair
Most ladies are pretty tight with their hair styling tools, but those heat treating miracle workers can seriously damage your tresses over time if you don’t treat your locks to some much-needed TLC. All that straightening, blow drying and curling can result in fried strands, split ends, dry hair and more. And who wants that?
