Tips To Protect Hair From Damage

Tips To Protect Hair From Damage Hair _01

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.


All of these products can be purchased from the Retailbox website.

    I always use a heat protectant spray before using any heating tools and I sometimes wash my hair, leave it until the next day to air dry and then blow dry them. Saves me time and it’s good for the hair since I use heating tools less.

    I always make the habit of brushing my hair in the shower with conditioner using my tangle teezer! It helps so much as my hairs super long and thick xx

    I usually let my hair air dry and then use the hair dryer for a minute or so. Thankfully I have thin, fine hair so it air dry pretty quickly.

    Shame on me, I never use a heat protectant! I find it makes my hair greasy, and I use more than enough products already! Recently though I’m trying out the Bumble & Bumble Hairdressers oil, which has a UV protectant in it. Better than nothing, eh?

    My hair looks terrible if I don’t style it so it’s safe to say it gets its fair share of heat damage! I’ve been trying to let it air dry before going in with my GHDs to lessen this, as well as using a mask regularly and a heat protectant with argan oil in it. x

    This is so useful! I am constantly using blow dryer and hair straightener, The result? I always have to cut a lot of my hair because it gets dry ends all the time.
    Thanks for the tips! 🙂
