What Women do you know that acts as if she doesn’t care about how healthy her hair is? Exactly! Split ends are one of the many problems women face in their daily routine. Along with dullness, hair loss and even damaged hair.
Think of all the damage you are doing to your hair with all the heat tools, products you put into your hair and dying it. Even washing your hair causes damage to your hair and makes it brittle! So what are we all doing wrong and how can we help prevent the damage?
Of course having healthy hair means you need to maintain it daily. You didn’t think you could just get away with only changing a few things here and there did you? So stick to these new habits and you will have beautiful, lushious, tamed hair again!
First off, you are going to want to trim off any split ends you may have. You need to start fresh in order to maintain it! We recommend seeing a professional hairdresser who knows what they are doing for this step. Repeat getting a trim every 6-8 weeks.
There may be products on the market that say they help split ends, however, they may seal the damage on the outside and look healthy but the damage itself is not healed. Which why we recommend getting it cut off.
You hair is damaged by your daily routine, which is why it is important to pay attention to what you do to your hair. Being to harsh or careless is what causes the problem.
Chemicals in baths, pools, hair dye, perms and even shampoo and conditioners are some examples of factors you may not even have been aware of. Try to stay away from chemicals and use only natural components instead. Protect your hair when swimming by deep conditioning, special oils or wearing a swimming cap.
Washing and drying your hair are two daily procedures in a women’s routine. They are also two very damaging procedures to your hair. To prevent harm to your hair, try and stick with shampoos and conditioners for your hair type. Applying shampoo to your scalp only will help prevent tangles and when you rinse the shampoo will run down the remainder of your hair. When conditioning, apply only to your ends and not your scalp. Applying conditioner onto your scalp will actually reduce the volume in your hair. Rinse only with luke warm or cold water to keep the moisture in your hair locked in.
Deep condition your hair once a week to nourish your hair.
When drying your hair try not to “rub” it with a towel, as it can damage your hair. Instead, squeeze excess water out with your towel.
Brushing or combing your hair is also a huge cause of damage to your hair. Using the proper brush or comb for your hair type is key. Try sticking to brushes used of only natural materials to prevent static. Using all natural is also gentler on your hair. When brushing, try not to tug or pull hair too hard. Instead, using a deep conditioner or detangler, spray all over and work your way from the ends to your roots. If the knot it too big, try using your fingers to sperate it instead of rushing through it with your comb or brush.
Pay attention everyday and your hair will look like this in no time!!!
