WHERE YOU WENT WRONG WITH YOUR HAIR Part 2

s much as we love styling and dyeing our hair, we need to understand that; over styling, chemical processing, excessive exposure to heat, even due to medical conditions, can easily strip the hair out of its natural oils and moisture that lead to damaged hair.


Sometimes it's pretty clear how you ended up with damaged hair, but there are also times when you're not entirely sure. Dyeing, bleaching, and styling your hair is great, only if you know what tools or products to use – these little things can make or break your gorgeous locks.

Continue reading and learn how to prevent any further damage or smooth over the symptoms before you completely cut your damaged hair.





DAMAGED FROM DYE

Whether it's pastel, mermaid, or covering gray colors, dyeing hair at home can have some serious consequences. These damages last longer than the color itself. They remove the hair's natural moisture and oils, making your thick and smooth hair bristly to the touch.

Here is how you can limit further damage:


STAY ON SHADE

Experts suggest sticking to a dye within three shades of your natural hair color and going for darker hair shades to limit the damage. Colors that are unnatural are more difficult to maintain and require touching up frequently.


DYE LESS OFTEN

When you extend the time between the touch-ups, that also helps reduce damage. Try waiting 7 to 10 weeks – or longer perhaps – between the dye jobs.

To make things a little more feasible:

  • Make sure you wash your hair frequently.

  • Use shampoos that are only formulated for dyed hair

  • Rinse the shampoo and conditioner with cool or lukewarm water.






ONE SERVICE AT A TIME

It is always best to chemically straighten, relax or perm your hair two weeks before the hair color appointment. This way, you give your hair some time to recover from the previous treatments.


DAMAGE FROM HEAT TOOLS

Here's the thing with heating tools – it will honestly damage hair fibers and lead to porous and raised cuticles. Excessive use of heating tools can also make your hair prone to damage.


Here is how you can limit further damage:


BLOWDRY FROM A DISTANCE

In all honesty, blow dryers are notorious for causing hair damages. However, the good news here is that you may not have to give it up entirely. According to a study, if you hold your blow dryer a few centimeters away from your hair and move it continuously to reduce damage. Use a heat protection product.


LOW TEMPERATURE & AIR DRY

Know this, the hotter the temperature, the more damage to your hair. Excessive heat and high-temperature damage hair – big time, regardless of where it is coming from. Use low heat only if necessary and let the air dry your hair for you.
