Just as we change up our skin-care routines over time, the same principle applies to our hair. “As time goes on, I’ve noticed more people are starting to realize hair care is just as important as skin care,” says Kelly Lachajewski, a stylist at Dennis Bartolomei Salon in Chicago. “Damage is inevitable for hair, so taking proper steps to maintain its health and integrity are important.”

It's not just your strands that need a little extra love from your routine, either. “Your hair health quite literally starts at the root,” says Hien Kaplan, co-founder and chief science officer at hair-care brand Function of Beauty. “A healthy scalp impacts your overall hair health and comfort. Irritated, dry scalps are no fun.”  This is where a consistent regimen comes in handy, along with hair-healthy habits like getting your fair share of protein and vitamins.
