If you’re anything like us, you might still be looking around thinking, “what happened to 2021?” After an incredibly long year, the holidays came and went in a flash. Did you forget to make New Year’s Resolutions? Don’t worry, we won’t tell - because we forgot too. But it’s not too late to start the year on the right foot, especially if you’re looking to make some changes in the way you care for your hair.
At Yummy, we believe that hair care ought to be a part of any self-care regime. Think about it - your hair is probably one of the first things people notice about you. It shapes how the world sees you and treats you, and most importantly, it shapes how you see yourself. For this reason (and so many others) we’re a little obsessed with sharing new ways to make you shine - literally.
Below, we’re sharing our favorite New Years hair care resolutions.
Have fun with your style!
It’s so easy to fall into a style rut - you find something you like, and you stick with it. But a true queen knows there’s always a new style to discover on the horizon - and knows she’s worth it. One of the reasons we love extensions so much is that they literally make almost any style achievable - long, short, curly, wavy, up, down, braided, or parted down the middle. Honey, the world is your oyster.
Make a resolution to try at least one new style per month this year. If you need inspiration, don’t forget to look at our instagram feed, or check out our blog for ideas to create a messy bun, wear a hot ponytail, or glam it up.
Make a commitment to deep conditioning
You know you weren’t going to get away from us without being reminded to deep condition your hair, right? Yummy’s raw, natural hair is sleek and strong, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t require some TLC. Plus, the better you treat your hair, the longer it will last. So get out your calendar - right now - and mark it up: you need to be deep conditioning once a week. Of course, if you skip a week or two, your hair will survive. But aim for deep conditioning every week and trust us - your hair will show the difference.
Take a look at some of our blogs for hints on what new oils to look for in your deep conditioning treatments.
Remember to rest - your hair
Your raw Yummy hair is made of the highest quality, unprocessed, 100% natural human hair, which means that it can be styled with heat without breaking down or undergoing a change in texture. But that doesn’t mean you should do it every day. Hot tools like a blow dryer, flat iron, or curling iron zap hair of its moisture and damage the hair cuticle, leaving behind a dull texture and breakable strands. Yummy recommends using hot tools no more than every other day, but for this year, we like the resolution to take monthly hair breaks - refraining from using hot tools for several days in a row.
Does that sound impossible? It did to a few of us at first too. But once we started doing it, we found a few ways to adapt. For our hair rest weeks, we might style our hair into a messy bun, use accessories to dress up a simple low ponytail, or show off a gorgeous new head wrap. It’s a fun challenge that might just lead you to your next favorite hairstyle!
Invest in better tools
Chances are, if you’re a Yummy girl, you’re pretty likely to seek out hair care products that are as high quality as our extensions and wigs. But we’re constantly surprised when we meet customers who are hanging on to cheap flatirons and curling irons. Let them go! An investment in a high quality flatiron is an investment in both your hair style and longevity.
We care so much about our hair tools that we developed an exclusive partnership with Kosa Professionals, so that we can deliver the highest quality ceramic flatirons to our customers, shipped right along with their hair. These high-powered tools use tourmaline and ceramic to move smoothly along the hair shaft, preventing friction and breakage. The floating plates allow you to get as close to the scalp as possible. And negative ion generators and infrared heat technology eliminate frizz and seal in moisture to the hair.
This resolution is easy. Buy one now, and reap the benefits all year long!
Of course, these are only a few of the many, many resolutions you could choose to adopt. We recommend committing to them all, plus a few of your own. Don’t forget to share yours - and tag us on Instagram when you do!
