7 Luxury Hair Items to Give Your Hair a Treat

So, you want to give your hair a boost to bring back some life, shine, and the luxurious look it once had? No problem! You might need to spend some money to breathe some new life into your locks, but these luxury hair products and tools will give your hair just what it needs – no salon required!

Overnight Hair Masks

Want to treat your hair while you get your beauty sleep? An overnight hair mask may do the trick, especially if you have damaged or dull locks that need some extra love.

Hair masks can repair hair that’s been damaged from heat, over-styling, coloring, and more. Your hair might even find relief if it’s dry or frizzy.

The great thing about overnight hair masks is that nothing gets in their way as they work. You can spread the mask throughout your hair before bed, comb it through, and then put on a shower cap. The mask will stay in place and work its magic as you sleep without wind, sun, rain, or any other weather element interfering with the process.

Scalp Serums

Most of the time, the key to treating hair is by treating your scalp. Many hair problems start at an unhealthy scalp, which can be caused by anything from medications to eating an unhealthy diet. Fortunately, you can usually regain control over your scalp to bring it back to good health.

If you suffer from dry scalp, illness that’s affecting your hair, or even some hair loss, a scalp serum treatment might help. Scalp serums can nourish the scalp and hair follicles to heal your scalp, encourage hair to keep growing, and repair what’s already there.

Stick to a serum with natural ingredients. The last thing you want is to do further damage to your scalp by introducing it to harmful chemicals.

Hair Extensions

Natural-looking hair extensions can be a fun way to play up your hair without doing something drastic. They can be as temporary as you want to be, so you can experiment with all kinds of different looks without damaging your locks. Stick to natural colors or have some fun with some funky pinks, purples, or blues!

If you opt for quality hair extensions, they’ll cost a little more money, but they’ll also look more natural. High-quality hair extensions will leave your hair looking fuller and bouncier, and they’ll usually be even easier to put in place and remove than cheaper extensions.

Professional-Quality Shampoo and Conditioner

If you’re going to splurge a little on your hair, then a good chunk of your hair budget should absolutely go toward a professional-qualify shampoo and conditioner. The cheaper brands may save you money, but they can damage your locks over time, stripping them of natural oils and shine.

You’ll want to opt for the kinds you see in your favorite salon that have formulas tweaked for specific types of hair. Shampoo and conditioner shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all solution for every hair type. Instead, use a set that targets fine hair, dry hair, color-treated hair, etc. to fit your hair situation.

Clipless Curling Iron

When you want the perfect style that doesn’t take hours to create, then you should treat your hair with Brilliance New York clipless curling irons. These curling irons don’t clip your hair in place as you curl your hair around the barrel, so you won’t have to worry about unsightly crimps that can ruin the whole look.

Plus, they’re super easy and quick to use and can create dozens of looks! If you can only afford one styling tool, a clipless curling iron is it. They come in different sizes so that you can create anything from tight curls to flowy, beachy waves. A professional look can be yours in about 15 minutes before you head to work.

Heat-Protectant Spray

Do you use a blow dryer to create your daily ‘do? If so, then it might be wise for you to spend some money on a good heat-protectant spray for your hair. The good news is that even quality sprays won’t cost you much more than $20, so this is one of the budget-friendliest hair products you can buy.

Heat-protectant sprays can not only prevent your hair from getting damaged from your blow dryer and other heated styling tools, but they can even bring your natural shine back to your hair. Use a spray on wet hair before you blow dry, dry hair before you style, or even before you head out for a day in the sun.

Aim for Eight Hours Sleep

On average, an adult person should get between 6-8 hours of restful sleep every night. But how many of us make those eight hours? Probably a few with the majority of us going into something called ‘sleep debt’. If you don’t get enough sleep through the week, your body is going to force you to catch up at some point. Many studies have shown that getting less than 6 hours per night could actually be as bad as getting none at all. Work on getting 7-8 hours each night and  you’ll get your body into a natural rhythm. 

Just having enough sleep can enhance your appearance. Eight hours is enough for the body to repair and look after itself.

Get Yourself a Quality Mattress and Ensure Your Bedroom Is Suitable

Since quality sleep is the best reward you can give your body investing in a good mattress is the best decision if your mattress is already old or has started to feel uncomfortable. Sleeping on a low-quality mattress will create pressure points on your back and this will lead to poor sleep quality as well as a number of aches and pains the next day.

Don’t settle for less than you deserve and start looking for a mattress that is suited to your needs.

Mattresses are proven to improve the quality of sleep and memory foam is a highly recommended option to achieve a restful beauty sleep. Memory foam mattresses are known to conform to the body shape so that you feel as if you’re sleeping on a cloud! 

As a result, purchasing a memory foam mattress can enhance sleep efficiency and overall beauty. Furthermore, you should also ensure that your bedsheets are nice clean and fresh. If you love pillows, try to use silk pillowcases because they feel amazing and have great benefits for the skin and hair.  

Sleep on Your Back

Perhaps you are one of those people who sleeps on their side. Side sleeping may be comfortable but it is not recommendable if you want to get a beauty sleep. By sleeping on your sides you’ll press your face into your bedding, and this promotes premature aging by allowing your skin to be pulled in strange directions. I’m guilty of this too! 

If your skin is pulled too much, it eventually loses its elasticity and sags. Due to this, sleeping on your back is one way to avoid the development of wrinkles. Getting a silk pillowcase as discussed earlier is a good way to stop so many lines forming while you sleep. 

Use Aromatherapy to Relax You

Using aromatherapy is another way to help you get enough beauty sleep. The most recommended is lavender, as it has been associated with quality sleep for decades. In 2005, the Wesleyan University conducted a research on the health benefits of lavender and found that it promotes deep sleep. Try putting a few drops into your bath before bed, or use a diffuser!

Exercise During The Day

Falling asleep as soon as they get into bed is unheard of for some. However, it’s possible if you exercise during the day! Just make sure you don’t exercise too close to bedtime, as it can actually keep you lying awake rather than sleeping soundly. 

If you want to wake up looking your absolute best thanks to quality sleep, start using these tips ASAP. You should notice a marked difference in your sleep quality and appearance!
