Whether you're a curly queen, a sleek straight siren, or somewhere in between, we all know that maintaining luscious locks requires some serious TLC. In the spirit of gratitude and good hair days, let's dive into the 5 things my hair is eternally thankful I do – and maybe your hair will be too!
The double (and sometimes triple) wash dance
So, picture this: you're in the shower, water cascading down, and you're giving your hair the VIP treatment – a double wash.Yep, double. Does more really mean more here?
In this case, yes! We at Lasio Professional fully approve.
My hair quality has 100% changed just by adding an additional shampoo session to my hair day routine. The first wash removes the oils and build-up. The second wash cleanses the hair. I’ve noticed way more volume in my hair, and I don’t have to wash my hair as frequently since I’ve begun this habit.

Heat is your hairs frenemy
Let's be honest. We all have a love-hate relationship with our styling tools. Curling irons, straighteners, blow dryers – they're like our beauty BFFs, but they can be damaging over time. To stand the heat in the kitchen, I've embraced the art of heat protection. Before engaging in any hot rendezvous at your vanity, a spritz of heat protectant is a must. It's not only a shield, but can act as a smoothing and frizz protection agent.
P.S. Remember, your hair is like a delicate flower. Treat it with care, and it'll blossom beautifully!
Become a self care sunday girly
Sundays are for brunch, relaxation, and deep conditioning – at least in my hair care playbook. Deep conditioning is like a spa retreat for your hair. Weekly hair masking helps to reintroduce vital nutrients and moisture locking oils back into your follicles that have been lost over the course of the week from styling and environmental exposure. Leaving your locks feeling softer, thicker, tangle-free, and helps to prevent upward splitting of your hair strands.
I've made it a weekly ritual, and my hair thanks me by not breaking off.
@laurenpiluso “How do you get your curls to look so soft & moisturized?” Is a question I get asked often, the answer: consistent deep conditioning treatments! Naturally curly hair often times can be inherently dry causing frizz and tangles. Incorporating deep conditioners, masks & treatments into your routine is an easy way to give your hair the essential moisture it craves! Below I shared a few of my favorite products that help keep my curls moisturized & balanced. Just remember consistency is key when using these products!

To trim or not to trim
We've all been there – the internal debate of whether to trim or not to trim. Spoiler alert: a regular trim is the secret to maintaining healthy, bouncy hair. I've embraced the trim tango, scheduling regular appointments with my hairstylist to keep those split ends at bay. It's like giving future me the chance to have long, healthy hair. Future you is your best friend after all.
Silk pillowcase = sweet dreams
This was a hard investment for me to make personally. But your hair and skin will be forever grateful. Silk pillow cases help minimize tangles and frizz, thanks to their delicate material that doesn’t absorb moisture (like a cotton pillowcase would). For the girls who are new here: lack of moisture is personally responsible for frizz, breakage, and victimizing your hair.
This investment is a game-changer. Not only does it feel luxurious against your skin, but it also keeps your hair smooth and snag-free. It's like giving your hair the royal treatment every night, and honestly, it deserves nothing less.
