How to Repair Damaged Hair Fast and Easy
Posted on May 22 2017
Damaged hair can happen to anyone and because of different reasons. But it doesn’t mean you have to just accept it and suffer. There are a number of things you can do to remedy the situation. In this post are 7 practical tips on how to repair damaged hair fast and easy.
Tip #1: Go for a trim
If you notice that the damage is just starting, get a trim right away to avoid further damaging the rest of your hair. It is always best to nip it in the bud, or in this case, the ends of your hair. Ask your hairstylist for a trim that doesn’t necessarily change your hairstyle altogether.
Tip #2: The conditioner is your friend
Deep conditioning your hair for at least once a week will definitely help keep the damage at bay, especially if you use a conditioner that is suitable for your hair type. Adding moisture to your hair prevents friction which further damages the strands. You may also use Bernard Evans’ Platinum Hair Brightener and Leave-in Conditioner to ensure your hair stays hydrated throughout the day.
Tip #3: Avoid too much heat
May it be of your straightening iron, curling iron, hairdryer, or even from direct sunlight, you need to stay away from these things as much as possible. But if you really need to use any of these tools, it’s best to use a heat protectant for your hair. Wearing a hat will not hurt also if you need to stay in the sun for long periods of time.
Tip #4: Refrain from dyeing or using chemicals in your hair
If your hair is already damaged, using chemicals to straighten or perm it will definitely add more damage to your hair. Dyeing also adds to this damage, especially if you use bleach since it strips the strands of its natural moisture, making it more brittle and prone to breakage.
Tip #5: Do not wash your hair too much
Unlike conditioning which you should do more than once a week, washing your hair often does more harm than good. The harmful chemicals in the shampoo strip the hair of necessary moisture which results to more tangles and damage.
Tip #6: Use natural hair masks
A lot of natural ingredients found in the kitchen can be used as hair masks to help your hair regain its natural beauty. Eggs, mayonnaise, honey, coconut oil, and other botanical oils will help your hair regain and lock in the moisture, making your hair more manageable and less prone to damage.
Tip #7: Find products that are suitable for your hair
The best products to use are the ones made especially for the type of hair you have. Bernard Evans Platinum Collection offers the best products made especially for specific hair types. For an overall protection no matter what type of hair you have, you can use Bernard Evans Platinum Ultra-Violet Protector which will protect your hair from the sun’s harmful rays, even when you go swimming.
But beyond these fast and easy practices to repair damaged hair, the best way to protect your hair is always prevention. Take care of it before damage even sets in by using the right products and knowing how to work with the type of hair you have instead of going against it.
