5 scientifically proven ways to get great hair

Beauty blogs and magazines are full of information about which hair care products are best. Sadly, much of this information is based on either uninformed personal speculation or (more likely) on regurgitated press releases from the beauty companies.

If you’re tired of reading the same old crap, check out these five UNIQUE technologies that have been scientifically proven to work.

1. Strengthen hair from the inside out.

Most conditioners claim to strengthen hair but all they really do is reduce breakage from combing and brushing. (Check the fine print in your shampoo ad and see for yourself.) Check out this ingredient that penetrates hair to work from within – IF you apply it properly.

2. Don’t trim split ends, bind them together.

There’s a simple test that shows any conditioner can temporarily mend split ends. Don’t be fooled! Instead look for this unique technology that truly binds torn ends back together. (It’s not permanent but it does last through multiple washings.)

3. The anti-silicone conditioner

Many people complain about the buildup caused by certain silicones. But while the big beauty companies keep cranking out new ‘cone based conditioners only ONE brand fights frizz with PolyfluoroEster, a low surface tension polymer.

4. The. Best. Hairspray.

You don’t need to spend a lot of money to get the best hair styling technology in the world. You just need to know to look for two things: One ingredient that should NOT be in the product and two others that MUST be.

5. Instant hair

No cosmetic product will grow hair but a dose of keratin micro-fibers comes close! If you’re worried about thinning on the crown area you’ll be amazed at how well this easy to apply powder restores the look of of youthful hair.

    I just followed your link for item #1 and must say how much I love coconut oil. I have long “virgin” hair and seldom use heat tools or styling products, but since my hair is long (and I am old :-P) I need a good conditioner so that I don’t look like the wicked witch of the west. Coconut oil is the best! I use it a couple times a month. I slather it on, pin my hair on top of my head, and go about my morning routine which also includes a jog and workout. All considered, it is only on my hair about 5 hours, but that seems to be enough time to add significant body and a lovely luster to my locks. Perhaps because hair, at my age, tends to be more porous, the coconut oil penetrates more easily. Whatever the reason, 5 hours seems to work well for me. I use 100% pure unrefined organic coconut oil. A big tub of the stuff only costs about $8.00 and lasts forever–or so it seems. As for washing it out, I’ve never had any problems and just use my normal shampoo–lather, rinse, repeat. All’s good 🙂

    This post isn’t “scientifically proven”… it’s cringe-worthy that you throw that term around but your post is a glorified shopping list of hair products. No citations of studies. Not even any actual claims or hypotheses. You’re literally just saying “Buy this. I think it’s good.”
