Some say that you can never reverse whatever damage has been done to your hair. Others say it takes a while to repair damaged hair. But truth is, there is something you can do to stop the damage and start repairing the distress you caused to you tresses.
You have come to the right place as we will teach you to say bye to hair distress! First, stop whatever you are doing that is causing your hair to be in its current state- dry, brittle, damaged hair.
With this in mind, let us incorporate these healthy habits so that they become part of our daily activities:
Tip #1: If you are used to blow drying your hair or you use a straightening iron everyday then turn the temperature down and use a heat protector before using any heating tools. Perming and dyeing is one of the main culprits for damaged hair. So if you want faster healing results, stop all of these hair hazards altogether.
Tip #2: If you are going to blow dry your hair, make sure that they are not dripping wet. Dry it using a towel and blot. Do not rub as this will cause damage.
Tip #3 Finger comb hair after bath before you use a wide-tooth comb to de-tangle your locks. Using ordinary brush or comb causes breakage as this is when the hair is at its weakest. If it’s wet, then it’s definitely a no-no.
Tip #4: The worst thing that you can do to your hair is shampooing it every day. Although you just can’t imagine how you can survive not washing it every day, with all the oil and dirt stuck on your scalp. Worry not, for you can always use dry shampoo or a dash of baking soda to solve it.
Tip #5: Never use an elastic band to hold your ponytail. Use the one that is covered with soft fabrics to lessen static hair which causes the hair to tangle easily.
Tip #6: Do not use hot water on your hair. Instead, wash it with warm water. Then, rinse with cool water to make the hair shaft lie flat causing your hair to look shiny.
Tip #7: If you love to swim, make sure that you protect your hair before you dip. Always use a swimming cap or apply a conditioner to your hair an hour before swimming. Chlorine is known to cause excessive dryness to your hair so therefore it should be avoided at all costs.
