Your hair can get damaged from any number of things. It can get damaged from coloring, not getting regular trims, using heat on your hair, or from using chemical treatments on your hair. The damage your hair endures can be repaired, so don't worry too much. Take the time to take better care of your hair if it is damaged from these or other things, and prevent future damage to your hair by following the tips below:
Use Heat Protectant Hair Care Products
Before using heat on your hair such as curling irons, blow dryers or flat irons, use a heat protectant product on your hair. There are a number of different products on the market that can be used. Look for a product that contains serums or oils to defend against frizz, and help keep moisture in your hair for shinier hair. Follow the manufacturer's directions and use your fingers to work it into your hair, then use your curling or flat iron, or blow dryer on your hair.
Be sure when applying heat to your hair that you turn down the temperature if you can so as to not burn your hair. For blow dryers, invest in a good quality hair dryer that will dry your hair faster and not burn your hair from being on your hair for too long.
When shampooing, pay special attention to your scalp, as this is the area that is usually the oiliest. Don't over-shampoo, as you can strip the natural oils from your hair. Switch up your shampoo from time to time, and look for shampoo based on your needs. If you have colored hair, look for color-safe shampoo. If you have dry hair, look for a moisturizing shampoo.
Skip All-Over Coloring
All-over coloring can dry out your hair. Skip the all-over coloring and go for root touch-ups in between colorings instead. By focusing on the root instead of the entire strand, you're less likely to dry out your hair as much.
Deep condition your hair if it's severely damaged by perms, straightening chemical treatments and other chemical treatments. Use a deep conditioning treatment or a conditioning mask to repair hair and to bring back the shine to your hair.
