Stay Away From The Heat Products
Although most people who use heat products do so because it makes their hair look presentable, this is often one of the most common ways that people damage their hair. This is especially true for people who do not use heat protectant serums or use multiple heat products multiple times per day. Although this can seem as if it’s making your hair look better, it’s actually damaging your hair and burning it slowly. Hair that has a ton of heat damage tends to lose it’s natural shape and texture, and if it’s really bad can actually break off, making your hair look and feel shorter. If you want to make sure that you hair’s healthy, it’s best to avoid these products all together. You may not have to completely get rid of them, though. Using heat products only once or twice a week and slowly coming off of it once your hair gets used to not having so much heat put on it will definitely help.
Many people straighten their hair so much or use other forms of heat products because their hair is frizzy. There are two reasons for this, either your hair can be naturally very frizzy, or you’re washing it so much that you’re stripping out all of the good oils that your hair naturally produces and making it more frizzy. This can be a huge problem for many people without them even knowing because they spend so much time doing the same routines over and over. If you want to save your hair, wash it less or use a less intensive shampoo, one without sulfates is best, so that you’re not constantly stripping it of all the nutrients and oils that it needs.
Stop Bleaching At Home
When it comes to coloring your hair, there is only so many things that you can do before you have to bleach it to get the right color. If you want to have gorgeous locks, that means that you’re going to have to dye your hair less. Although you can definitely go to a salon to get your hair dyed, making sure that you take care of it like it should be taken care of instead of constantly getting it dyed more blonde will go a long way in keeping your hair look great. If you do have to bleach your hair, it’s best to stick with the professionals and get it done at a salon with a hairdresser that you actually trust. Make sure that your kid is kept busy while you’re there with something great from ToysRUs, because bleaching the right way can take literal hours.
