Keep reading for 7 of our favorite New Year’s Hair Resolutions to make 2024 your best year yet.
Resolution #1: Make Your Color Last Longer Than Ever
You know that high-on-life feeling you get from freshly colored hair? You don’t have to wash it away a few days after your appointment—with the right products, you can maintain that color-happy feeling until your next salon visit.
First, it’s important to understand the causes of color fading: sulfates, sun exposure, added salt, heat damage, hard water minerals, unhealthy hair and harsh alcohols are some of the main culprits.
So, the easiest way to achieve this resolution is to be picky about your products and always read the ingredient list. Unless, of course, you’re shopping at Colorproof! Each one of our products isn’t just safe for colored hair – we go above and beyond to cultivate formulas through our Advanced Color Last System, which helps repair, preserve and protect color-treated hair that actually promotes color vibrancy with each use!
We're so confident about our color care protection that we guarantee it! At Colorproof, we stand behind our performance wholeheartedly, so if you don't achieve the results you're looking for with our products, we'll give you your money back within 30 days of use. Color-happy hair, here you come!
Resolution #2: Maintain Moisture All Year Long
Hydrated hair is happy hair. And happy hair means happy you! To nourish your hair with unmatched moisture this year, let’s first take a look at the difference between dry hair and damaged hair.
Damaged hair usually causes split ends, limp strands, uneven length, brittleness and lots of tangles. Dry hair, however, is more associated with dandruff, itchy scalps, dullness (a lack of shine) and a coarse strand texture.
If the latter sounds like you, it’s time to experiment with hydrating products! Our Moisture Shampoo and Moisture Conditioner deliver daily hydration, while our Moisture Masque offers a deeper treatment for extra dry hair.
Pro Tip: Many moisturizing products can leave hair feeling heavy and weighed down, so look for lightweight formulas. Anything in our Moisture collection will do the trick!
Resolution #3: Stop Heat Damage in its Tracks
So many of the usual hair woes can be traced back to heat damage. Color fading, thinning, frizz, dryness and dullness are just a few of the signs that your hair is taking on too much heat. Ugh!
The first way to stop heat damage in its tracks is simple: reducing your heat tool usage. If that sounds scary, don’t worry! There are plenty of ways to style your hair without going straight to the blow dryer.
Of course, you don’t have to cut out heat entirely. Because where’s the fun in that?! Instead, just be extra diligent about incorporating heat protectants into your hair routine.
Any of our blow-dry products – such as Biorepair Thicken Blow Dry Spray or Blow Dry Volume Spray – are perfect for post-shower styling. You’ll also get plenty of protection from our daily Essential Leave-In, Moisture Styling Créme and Plush Locks Leave-In Smooth®.
No matter what product you use, consistency is key! If needed, put a sticky note reminder on your mirror to use heat protectants each and every day.
Resolution #4: Say Goodbye to Thinning
Does your ponytail feel lighter than it used to? Is your brush catching strands faster than usual? Anyone can fall victim to the perils of hair thinning, so first thing first: do NOT feel ashamed!
Your doctor will be able to help you out with the medical side of things if needed, but you can also adjust your routine to encourage hair growth. A great place to start is, of course, your shampoo and conditioner.
ENTER: our beloved Thicken Collection, a line of focused formulas powered by our Phyto-CP Complex™ to restore scalp health and create an environment where hair can thrive.
Biorepair Thicken Shampoo and Conditioner are our best-selling thickening baselines, but customers also love the Biorepair Thicken Scalp Serum. To really give your hair a fresh start, try incorporating a Scalp Brush as well!
Resolution #5: Reclaim Your Curls, Coils and Waves
If you haven’t come across #CurlTok on TikTok or Instagram, allow us to introduce you to one of our favorite hair trends. After years of straightening their hair, women everywhere are re-discovering their natural curls and reimagining their entire hair routines to support them.
There’s a really easy way to tell if you have natural curls or waves: take a small section of hair that hasn’t been styled and wrap it around your finger. If it holds a spiral shape, you might want to pursue a curly hair routine!
It can take months of altering your routine and avoiding your usual heat tools to achieve your curly dreams, but everyone has to start somewhere. Our Curl Shampoo and Curl Conditioner are great first steps, especially when combined with the Tru Curl Enhancing Créme.
Resolution #6: Level-Up Your Styling Toolkit
Perhaps you love your hair the way it is but want something new to play with next year. If that sounds like you, maybe it’s time to level up your styling skills! To achieve this resolution, you’ll need to add a few new products to your toolkit.
If you don’t already use one, a mousse is a great addition. Our Lift It Mousse adds bounce, body and beautiful vibrance to any hair type. Apply it to damp hair and style away!
For something a bit more advanced, consider trying a Styling Putty. Its firm hold and matte finish is perfect for slicked-back styles and the "clean girl" aesthetic.
Resolution #7: Find a New Color to Show Off
Finally, for a New Year’s Hair Resolution that really shakes up your 2024, we challenge you to find your new color!
What color have you secretly always wanted to try? What color catches your eye the most? What’s a color you’ve never considered before?
If it’s time for a change, there’s no better way to introduce the new you to the world than with a fresh new color.
