Are your struggling with dryness, brittleness, and breakage? Read on to find out how to fix dry damaged hair and get back your hair luster. There are many reasons that can cause damage to your hair including hair dyes, styling products, extensions, flat irons, and bleachers. Such things can make your hair dry and prone to hair breakage, split ends, and make it lose its natural luster. By following the tips below you can fix your dry hair efficiently and quickly.
1. Shampoo Properly: Choose a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner meant for damaged hair. Go for shampoos and conditioners that contain natural oils and herbs as they can help repair your damaged hair. Also, you shouldn’t shampoo your hair more than twice a week. Shampooing too frequently can strip damaged hair and create brittleness. And condition your hair each time you shampoo. Don’t wash your hair with hot water because it damages the hair. Use lukewarm or cool water to wash your hair and give it a rinse with cool water at the end of the shampooing process.
2. Hot Oil Treatments: Hot oil treatments can play a great role in repairing dry, damaged hair. They can provide damaged hair with moisture and shine. Apply a little of warmed up treatment oil of choice to clean, towel-dried hair. Cover your hair head with a shower cap, or plastic wrap. Leave it overnight, and wash it with your favorite shampoo and moisturizing conditioner in the morning. You can give hot oil treatment to your hair once a week and remember that the overuse might cause your hair to look greasy.
3. Limit Use Of Heat On Hair: Don’t use the straightener, blow dryer, or curling iron too often. And if you have to use them, take care not to blow dry your hair when it is dripping wet. And instead of using a standard towel, use a microfiber towel to dry your hair.
4. Avoid Styling Products: Don’t use too many styling products on your hair. This will only weigh the hair down and make it look greasy and even drier. When you do use styling products, check the labels so that you know what they contain. Stay away from hair products that have high levels of alcohol or peroxide, and stick with products that are gentle. If you like to dye your hair, use dyes that are devoid of chemicals – like henna or tea. They help to repair your hair, instead of damaging it.
