Your Guide on How to Fix Damaged Hair
There are so many cool styles you can do with your hair nowadays. With a simple internet search, you can rock just about any look you want. Whether you have short or long, flowing hair, the sky's the limit.
And by all means, go all out and express yourself, but keep in mind - over-styling, over-dyeing, or just overdoing it can damage your hair and cause it to be brittle and broken. To prevent your hair from getting damaged or repair it if it's already too late, follow the tips below.
How to Fix Damaged Hair
Keep the Temperature at a Minimum
While your curling iron, flat iron, and blow dryer all have a place in your hair care routine, you should pay attention to how you use them. Yes, they're the magic wands that help turn your stubborn hair into luxurious tresses. But all that heat comes with heat damage, brittleness, dryness, and flyaways.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make is setting the temperature too high when styling your hair with heated tools. Opt for a mid-range temperature-setting on your devices and skip the heat styling entirely whenever possible.
Handle Wet Hair Carefully
Hair is most vulnerable when it's wet. The possibility of harming your hair accelerates if your damp hair is curly, delicate, or fragile. That being said, handle your wet hair with care. Do not try to work a brush through your wet hair unless it's a brush specifically designed for the job.
We recommend using our Black Wet / Dry Detangling Hair Brush for the task. After you shower, avoid vigorous tugging and rubbing. Instead, gently dry your hair with a quality towel, or better still, with the Pink Ultra-Fine Microfiber Hair Towel. Doing it this way bypasses the friction that often puts stress on weak hair.
Get a Quality Hair Mask
Quality hair masks contain high healing and moisturizing ingredients, like vitamins, essential oils, and organically-sourced elements. They're also more viscous than regular conditioners, so when you use them on damp hair, they do the job of keeping your hair down. Consider getting a mask that suits your hair type and using it twice a week or more devotedly. Be patient—the more you leave it on, the more effective it will be.
Opt for a Leave-In Treatment
Leave-in hair treatments are like unremitting helpers for your hair. Like most hair care products, you can get a leave-in product specific to your hair type. A leave-in for frizzy hair will supplement moisture and make your hair softer and more flexible. For optimal results, use leave-in treatments on damp (not soaking wet) hair and comb through with our pink detangling hairbrush for even distribution.
Seal Your Bonds
One of the causes of damage that occurs when you dye or lighten your hair has to do with chemical elements. For hair dyes or lighteners to do their jobs, they must loosen the structural bonds of your hair. Once hair bonds become weak, your hair becomes more sensitive to damage, dryness, and breakage. By adding unique bond-preserving products to your hair lightener, you can prevent this disruption.
Cut Your Split Ends
Have you ever tried snagging a piece of fabric only to unravel a considerable portion of the material? That’s what can happen when the ends of your hair split. The hair will begin wearing from the bottom up, leading to a bare, broken, unruly mess. To prevent this from happening, keep your hair supple and healthy with invigorating shampoos, quality conditioners, and leave-ins.
Swim and Sun With Care
While regular laps in the pool are excellent workouts, the chlorinated water and the sun are not great for your hair. The chlorine and other chemicals in the pool can cause hair to become breakable and brittle. Moreover, these take a toll on your hair color! If your lifestyle consists of hitting the pool or the beach regularly, always wear a swim cap to protect your hair. After swimming, wash and condition your hair quickly with soothing, moisturizing formulas.
Never Let Your Hair Get Thirsty
Dry hair is the number one cause of breakage. If your hair doesn't have the optimal moisture level, it will become crumbly and weak, much like your skin. Dry skin is cracked and flat, which is why we recommend you never skip your moisturizer. If you're predisposed to dry hair, opt for a moisturizing routine that includes a hydrating shampoo, conditioner, and a leave-in treatment.
Use Shampoo Wisely
Select a quality shampoo (sulfate-free) formulated for damaged hair. Using shampoos with organic ingredients will help repair your weakened hair. Don't shampoo too regularly. Wash your hair with lukewarm or cool water. Cool water can help your damaged hair by sealing the hair cuticle, resulting in glistening, smoother hair.
