When it comes to hair, there are all kinds of advice - from what to eat for healthy hair to the best color for your skin tone. 

While we've covered much of this spectrum in the following articles, and continue to add often, there are a few cornerstone pieces worth knowing up front. 

Diet - what you eat contributes to strong and healthy hair. For maximum impact and to avoid or slow down hair loss, add protein and iron to your diet

Trim - visit your stylist at least every 6 to 8 weeks. A regular trim removes split ends and maintains a fresh look and style. Also, it gives your hairdresser an opportunity to review your look and the health of your hair. 

Wash - wash regularly but not every day. Too much washing can dry out and tire your hair. Remember to add conditioner at every wash and to be consistent in your choice of hair care products. You want products that clean and nourish but don't strip your hair dry. 

Heat - Avoid too much heat as it damages your hair over time. Don't use the hairdryer if a towel dry will suffice and don't curl or go wavy with hot curlers or irons if you can find another way.
