How to Prevent Damaged Hair
A lot of women love to bleach, color, and heat style our hair because well, we want it to look good. However, sometimes when you do too much of these things your hair can become damaged, and trust me the damage can build up extremely fast. One day your hair might be just a little bit damaged, and then all of a sudden, you have extremely damaged hair and are at risk of having to cut it all off.
Some people think you can reverse split ends, but that is honestly not possible. Once your hair strand is broken, there is no mending it back together. All you can do it cut that off, that’s why you want to handle split ends right away because if you don’t, that small split end can split up your entire hair shaft causing it to become extremely damaged, and resulting in you to have to…that’s right! Cut it off! So in order to prevent damage and keep your hair in the healthiest condition, here are some tips:
1. Trim your hair regularly.
2. Make sure to deep condition your hair about once a week.
When we do things like put color and heat on our hair, sometimes our hair gets a bit tired and dry. Then it ends up needing a good revival, that’s what a deep conditioner does for your hair. You should own two separate deep conditioners, one that contains keratin and one that contains protein. You need two because it is essential to your hair to have keratin as well as protein, however too much of either of your hair can be EXTREMELY damaging to your hair. These things are good in moderation. For example, if you put too much protein in your hair, it actually breaks down the hair strand because it gets too heavily filled with the proteins causing it to become very weak and break off. So, this being said you should have two deep conditioners and alternate them week by week to keep your hair in a good balance of health.
