10 New Year’s Hair Resolutions to Start Off 2023 Right

As the New Year 2023 is approaching, it’s the perfect time for a fresh start! We all have our own list of resolutions and goals to achieve, but why not add a few hair-related resolutions as well?

Whether you’re looking to try out a brand-new haircut or simply maintain your mane with better practices and products, a wish list will definitely get you a step closer! From heatless hairstyles to scalp exfoliation sessions, let’s explore some creative ideas for making sure your crowning glory stays at its prime in the upcoming months.

1. Give Your Hair a Break from Heat Styling

If you’re someone who relies heavily on heat styling tools, try giving your hair a break in the new year. Let your hair air dry more often and give it a chance to recover from all the heat damage. If you love those sassy waves, why not have fun experimenting with heatless curls? Or, get one of the trendy wash-and-go haircuts to cut down on brow drying.

2. Get a New Hairstyle

Getting a new hairstyle may be scary, but, well, one of the best things about hair is that it grows out, so you can experiment with something new over and over again!

If you’re in a style rut, it is a must to try something new in the new year! If you change up your styles pretty often, you might want to try some of the hot 2023 trends like wolf cut or curtain bangs bob. We have plenty of inspiration to help you get started.

3. Commit to Regular Trims

Set up a trimming schedule so that you can keep your hair looking its best! How often you should get a haircut depends mostly on your hair length, with pixie cuts needing the most frequent refresh. However, it’s also about the health of your locks! Split ends can cause your hair to look unhealthy and feel rough, so if your hair is bleached or you regularly use heat to style your hair, be sure to trim ends more often to prevent hair damage.

4. Invest in Some Quality Hair Products

If you’re using drugstore shampoo and conditioner, it may be time to upgrade to something better quality. Investing in some higher-end hair products can make a big difference in the health and appearance of your hair. Ask your stylist to recommend you the products that help achieve the look you get at the salon.

5. Embrace Your Natural Texture

Whether your hair is pin straight, wavy, curly, or coily, embracing your natural texture is an empowering, liberating experience. Yes, it is easier said than done, as you might need to alter your hair care routine and shop for new products to bring out the beauty of your hair type. However, the journey of learning how to care for it properly and understanding the nuances that make up its structure can be incredibly rewarding!

6. Explore New Color Techniques

We have seen a rise in the popularity of solid hair colors, but balayage still rocks when it comes to creating dimensional hues or gray blending. With so many interesting color techniques out there, it is a sin against your hair not to give any a try! Whether you are ready for an edgy color blocking or consider some subtle changes like money piece highlights or shadow roots, make it your new year’s hair resolution to TRY!

7. Deep Condition More Often

Deep conditioning treatments can help to hydrate and repair damaged hair, so if your hair is looking dry or dull, this can be a great resolution to make. More so if you have curly or natural hair, have transitioned to natural gray, or regularly use purple shampoo to maintain a cool blonde hue.

8. Stop Washing Your Hair Every Day

Washing your hair too often can strip it of its natural oils, leaving it feeling dry and brittle. If you can, skip a day or two in between washes to give your hair a chance to recover. Washing hair less often will also help you be more intentional on the wash day and maintain the best washing and drying practices.

9. Attend to Scalp Care

Your scalp is an important part of your hair care routine and deserves just as much attention as your strands. Keep it clean by washing regularly and exfoliating once in a while.

Regularly washing the scalp with a mild shampoo helps to remove dirt and buildup from styling products, while exfoliating will be beneficial for removing dead skin cells that can clog pores and interfere with healthy follicle function. That’s a proven way to keep the scalp clean and unclogged while also stimulating blood circulation that can further promote hair growth!

10. Get a Professional Blowout

70s blowout has made a banging comeback and will predictably become one of the top hairstyles in 2023. Not only does a blowout give you a stylish, sleek look that will turn heads, but it’s also a great chance to see your hair, your haircut, and yourself from a new angle. And fall in love with your crown for the whole year ahead!
