Listen in to learn the 10 healthy hair habits most recommended by Pros:

  1. Balanced Diet: foods that lean into healthy hair, and why vegans could be most at risk for hair thinning.

  3. Shower Power: whether you *really* need to buy that hard water filter you saw on TikTok.
  4. Shampoo 101: why protecting your microbiome is goal #1, whether co-washing may be harmful for hair growth and the one ingredient you should absolutely avoid on a label.
  5. Scalp Toning: the rise of hair essences and who benefits from this skincare-inspired step.
  6. Scalp Exfoliating: how often should you go the extra mile.
  7. Hair Slugging: why a decades-old hack still holds up today.
  8. Home Remedies: fermented rice water vs. apple cider vinegar – the reason only one of these TikTok trends is worth your time.
  9. Hair Brushing: why the age-old “100 strokes” adage leads to more breakage than shine.
