1. Stop Over-Washing Your Hair

If your hair becomes greasy easily, over-washing might be one of the reasons. According to Jonathan Van Ness, he only washes his hair 1 or 2 times a week. However, he does not leave his hair dirty either. For the rest of the week, the hairdresser uses co-wash such as Hair Story New Wash or Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil.

"These products remove dirt and yuck but leave behind the correct balance of natural oils," he said. By this way, your hair will become much healthier and less greasy.

2. Timing Is Everything

After being drenched in sweat due to work out session, you want to wash your hair immediately. Nevertheless, Jonathan does not go along with the idea as he thinks the timing is wrong. He explained that if one's hair is dirty, it is just because of salt and natural oil. Please use dry shampoo for blowdrying your sweaty hair. It helps create a smooth texture and prevents hair damage.

3. Do Not Forget Your Primer Or Prep Spray

The Queer Eye's star reveals that a primer or prep spay is a must-have if you want to have a sleek and glossy hair! After washing his hair, Jonathan uses a wet brush to remove the tangles before using those products. He recommends Shu Uemura Wonder Worker primer and Bumble and Bumble prep spray for the process.

4. Say No To Products Contain Sulfates

Products contain sulfates that removes the natural oils of your hair. You should try your best to avoid sulfates, and that's how Jonathan does in his daily life. Once in a month, he washes his hair with a classic shampoo to get a clean feel. His favorites are Ouai, Kevin Murphy and Oribe shampoo.

5. Focus On The Night-Time Routine

As same as your skin, your hair also needs a proper night-time routine to make it look on point. Have you ever thought that pillowcases could affect your hair? Jonathan prefers silk pillowcases as they conduct less heat, keeping your hair smooth and healthy.

Another question: Should you keep your hair open or tie it up while sleeping? JVN goes for the second choice, but he ties it into a super loose top bun to keep his hair away from body heat. It also prevents one's hair from getting tangled.

6. Read The Ingredients In A Right Way

Besides sulfates, there are few more ingredients which might harm your hair. That's the reason why you should take time to read the list of ingredients of your hair products.
