Do you have frizzy, split ends? Is your hair dull and dry? If you answered yes to either question, then you most likely have damaged hair, but don’t worry the good news is that it’s not too late to start healing your hair. There are specific treatments and methods to use for damaged hair, as well as gentle styling products, shampoos and conditioners to help bring those damaged tresses back to life.
Try the following healthy habits to help your damaged hair look back to normal in no time!
A Good Trim Can Restore Damaged Hair!
If your damaged hair feels like dry straw, the first thing you can do to make it look better and restore your hair’s body is to go to the salon and ask for a trim. You don’t need to chop off most of your hair to achieve excellent results; it’s perfectly okay to leave some length and treat the remaining damaged hair. A healthy trim with layers may be an excellent way to go to help your damaged hair. Follow a healthy hair regimen for treating your damaged hair, such as using restorative styling products, shampoos and conditioners.
Stop Using Hot Styling Tools
Straightening irons, blow dryers and curling irons all damage hair. Try to air dry your hair as much as possible and avoid using irons. After using a mild shampoo and conditioner, use a restorative styling treatment and let your damaged hair air dry. If you can’t stand the thought of not being able to blow dry your hair, take your time when drying and avoid using the high setting.
Say Goodbye to Hair Colour and Chemicals
If you think that your hair is severely damaged, try to avoid chemical processing. Specific types of hair colour—such as harsh bleaches–can cause great damage to your hair or stress hair that is already damaged. Instead of using harsh chemicals on your hair consider buying 100% Remy high-quality extensions from EH Hair & Extensions; you can choose from an extensive range of colours so you can get the best match for your hair and your lifestyle.
Styling Products Can Help Restore Damaged Hair
When restoring your damaged hair, use hairstyles that are easy and ones that don’t need a lot of product to hold them up in place. Using a leave-in spray when your hair is wet is an excellent way to prepare your hair for styling and to protect it from harsh environmental factors.
When you do use styling products, check the labels so that you know what they contain. Stay far away from hair products that have high levels of peroxide or alcohol in them and look for styling products that are gentle on your hair and scalp. Apply light gel, mousse or oil to control hair frizziness, and use styling products that will strengthen damaged hair by infusing amino acids and protein. If necessary, finish with a light hairspray.
