The Best Way to Treat Damaged Hair
It’s easy for hair to become damaged. Using the wrong products for a hair type, hot styling tools, coloring and bleaching can cause considerable damage to locks. Damage takes many forms and damages the entire hair shaft. It’s important to identify the source of the damage so it can be addressed.
Dry, brittle, fragile and weakened hair are the results of bleaching. To rectify the problem, bleach less often or not at all. Use products that provide sun protection and moisturize. Chlorine removes moisture and makes hair coarse and brittle.
Brittleness and Breakage
Choose product with argan oil that contains vitamins A and C, iron, biotin and UV protection. Avoid bleaching, dying and other chemical treatments.
Dull, Dry and Frizzy
Wash less and use a shampoo and conditioner designed for dry hair if damage already exists. Products with jojoba oil are excellent for moisturizing and revitalizing. Frizzies can benefit from a cold water or apple vinegar rinse. Argan oil is also beneficial for moisturizing.
Try choosing a dye that remains within 3 shades of the natural color and go darker rather than lighter. Dye less often, extend the time between touchups, and choose semi-permanent dyes. Color lasts longer the less often hair is washed. Use shampoos and conditioners designed for color-treated hair and that contain olive oil.
Regular trims and cuts remove damaged ends and helps keep hair looking healthy. For existing damage, use a conditioning treatment or a hair mask of coconut or argan oil.
Hot Styling Tools
Lower the heat, use styling tools sparingly, and blow dry from a distance of at least 6 inches away from the head. Move the dryer continuously to avoid hot spots and use a product that protects against heat prior to drying. Air dry whenever possible. Use products with coconut oil or consider a weekly coconut oil mask once a week.
Only brush dry hair. To detangle wet hair, start at the ends and work toward the scalp with a wide-toothed comb. Tying hair back reduces tangles. Keep locks hydrated with a leave-in conditioner and use a de-tangler.
