Protecting my hair from damage is one of the things I have completely been a slacker on, considering that my hair is so vital in making me feel good about myself I have been avidly trying to take better care in protecting my hair – Here are some easy tips to protect hair from damage.
With daily use of heat tools on my hair, I am amazed that I have hair left on my head. I do suffer from dry and damaged split ends. Since incorporating some of these tips to protect hair in my regime I have noticed a considerable difference in how my hair look and feels.
1 – Use a heat protectant spray , this is pretty self-explanatory, I cannot stress enough how vital it is to use a heat protectant spray before you plan on using any heat tools on your hair. A great option is the Joico Smooth Cure Thermal Styling Protectant or the ghd Heat Protect Spray which is also another good option to try.
2 – Allow hair to air dry if possible – In Winter this won’t be possible, but in Summer try and air dry your hair more often limiting the amount you use hair tools.
3 – Blow dry with low heat setting – If you do plan on using a hair dryer to dry your hair use a lower setting, it might take longer to dry the hair but it lessens damage to the hair.
4 – Brush hair when wet – Use a wide comb or brush and gently brush hair from the starting with the ends first, if you have curly or wavy hair it’s important to do this while hair is damp. If you do have straight hair use a comb or brush to brush out the hair after hair has had time to dry a bit. A Tangle Teezer is a great option and something I have been using for years and they come in so many designs.
5 – Moisturise hair – Something I am sure many women are already doing, moisturising hair is important to prevent hair from damaging. Use conditioner on the ends of the hair or a hair mask to help bring moisture to dry ends. The Joico Moisture Treatment Balm is definitely worth trying.
