It’s easy to do damage to your hair, and less easy to reverse that damage. Following these tips will help limit damage to your hair and keep it healthy.
Don’t wash your hair too much
It might sound strange, but it is possible to wash your hair too much. Most people shouldn’t wash their hair more than 3 or 4 times per week. Some people even recommend only washing it a couple of times per week. If you wash it every day, you could be doing unnecessary damage to your hair. It can remove the natural oils from the hair that it relies on to stay healthy and make it hard for the hair to stay hydrated. To limit damage to your hair, only wash it a few times per week.
After washing your hair, you also need to use conditioner on it. You should do this a few times per week and try to use the highest quality products available. There are so many benefits of using conditioner on your hair. Firstly, it can keep it strong and elastic. There are obviously lots of different types of conditioner that will do different things for your hair. So, make sure you choose the one that’s right for you and your hair type.
Use the right tools
If you use heat on your hair too much, it can cause damage to it. That doesn’t mean you should stop using tool like curlers or straighteners on your hair though. You can limit the damage to your hair by using these styling tools carefully and by giving your hair a break from the heat every so often rather than using them every day. It’s best to use the kinds of products that are top-quality. The cheaper, poor-quality ones tend to damage your hair more. So, use good straightening or curling products like the Infiniti Pro by Conair Curl Secret.
Get rid of split ends
You’ve probably heard lots of ways you can get rid of split ends. But the only sure-fire way to get rid of them properly is to trim the ends of your hair. Most people don’t like the idea of cutting their own hair in case they make a disastrous mistake, but you don’t need to cut a lot off. Doing a little bit at a time, will ensure you don’t take more than you want off. There are a couple of things you can do to stop ends from splitting in the first place though. By protecting your hair from the sun and from sea water, you can prevent the ends from getting damaged, for example.
Brushing your hair is an important part of keeping it healthy and undamaged. You should brush it at least once a day. It might seem like a big commitment, but it can make a big difference to your hair. Brush it from your scalp to the ends with a boar-bristle brush. This will help distribute the oils in your hair evenly throughout it, keeping it strong and letting it maintain it’s health. You should also detangle it with a wide-toothed comb after washing it.
Your hair can be very easily damaged, so make sure you follow these tips. It sounds like hard work, but you definitely won’t regret it when you see the effect it has on your hair.
