Heat from your flat or curling iron or blow dryer can damage hair making it dry and frizzy. Overuse of styling products can also have a bad effect on hair. There are various precautions and ways to protect your hair from heat damage, environmental impact and any other adverse effects that our daily beauty routine can have on hair. But once the damage is done there are solutions to get your hair back in shape.
Dry hair requires tender care. Washing with shampoos and conditioners that hydrate your hair can help revive those crispy locks. Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner formulas restore the moisture healthy hair needs for a radiant shine and smoothness, and with regular use can help to transform dry, dull and frizzy hair into visibly healthy, smooth, soft hair.
Overheating leads to dry hair with lots of split ends. It can be done by frequent or improper use of blow dryers, flat irons and curling irons.
- The best advice is stay away from hot tools, or at least limit the use of them.
- Don’t automatically go with the hottest temperature settings on your tools, try the cooler temperature settings.
- Apply conditioner and damage protection products like heat protection spray or special serums and creams to control heat and damage. Use deep conditioning treatments with ingredients like Shea butter and macadamia oil to hydrate dry hair and give it the protection it needs while keeping your hair soft and silky smooth.
- Let your hair air dry or use a towel to pat it dry before styling.
- Use shampoos and conditioners for dry hair to keep hair hydrated and remember to go for a trimming once a month.
- Go natural when you can.
All the styling products like pomades, gels, lotions and sprays can result in buildup making your hair look dull. Over cleansing will leave your hair without oils to protect it from environmental and styling damage.
- Ask your stylist to choose the right products for your hair.
- Let your hair breathe by going natural as much as possible.
- Don’t wash your hair too often. Twice a week is enough. If your hair gets dirty easily ask your stylist how to deal with it with minimum to no damage.
