You know those women who seem to wake up with perfect hair every morning — as if by magic? Well, there’s a little more to it than that.
Though genetics certainly come into play, women with enviable strands do things differently than the rest of us. They’ve got their shampoo routines down to a science, they invest in the right treatments, and they even go so far as to rethink their home-decorating. To them, hair isn’t just something to be styled — it’s something to be cared for, like your skin or (in some more extreme cases) a small child.
You don’t have to take our word for it. Ahead, women with great hair share the simple tweaks that changed their hair game. Trust us, if you follow their advice, your strands will go from "so-so" to "so-so amazing."
