5 Ways to Fix Damaged Hair




Has your hair been feeling damaged or dry? Does your hair look nice but towards the ends, it bulges out and appears dry and frizzy? If so, you may be a normal person and have managed to damage your hair, haha. Damaged hair takes time to repair, however, it's not difficult. Thankfully, it's not the end of the world, so here you go:


1. Cut those Ends:

The first place that your hair shows signs of damage is on your ends. Cutting your split ends are a great way to fix the appearance of your hair. There's a reason why hairstylists always tell you to get a trim every 3-4 months and that is to avoid getting split ends. Split ends eventually travel up the root of your hair and cause your hair to become frizzy and have a barbed-wire look, which is not cute. Cut your split ends regularly to maintain healthy and frizzless hair.


2. Read those Ingredients:

Girls love putting products in their hair. Especially if you have curly hair, you know that applying products is a necessity. Whatever your poison is, make sure it that contains healthy ingredients for your hair. We tend to overlook what is in the stuff that we buy but when it comes down to hair products, it's important if you want to maintain healthy hair. Avoid any hair products that contain sulfates, parabens, alcohol, synthetic colors and mineral oils. These ingredients will strip your hair of all of it's natural oils and are essentially killing your hair slowly. So make sure you pick up all natural, sulfate and paraben free products. A lot of the good lines are in the ethnic section of your drugstore.


3. Stop Applying Heat:

I know, I know. I used to hate hearing this as a child. I used to hate my curls and would blow dry and straighten my hair regularly. Any form of heat is not good for our hair and creates damaged and dry hair. If you need to use your blow dryer, put it on the cold setting. It may take slightly longer but it won't damage your hair. Even when rinsing your hair, applying cold water is ideal for those who want to minimize the frizz in their hair. Heat is not your friend, even though you may love to curl or straighten your hair.


4. Deep Condition:

Deep conditioning is a step that many girls overlook. Deep conditioning is great for those who need that extra boost in moisture. Applying a deep conditioner is a great way to fix your damaged or color treated hair. I usually deep condition 2-3x a month, sometimes 4x if I feel like my curls have been drier than usual. For those who are into DIY projects or all natural remedies, creating your own deep conditioner or mask for your hair is a great alternative to buying one and it's easy.


5. Moisturize

Moisturize that hair, girl! Moisture is your hair's best friend. Regardless of the hair type that you may have, dry hair is a no-go. Some hair may need more moisture than others but all hair needs moisture. Apply a leave-in conditioner in your hair to give it that extra boost. Deep conditioners give a great amount of moisture to the hair. Apply moisturizing masks as well. One of my favorite ingredients to apply in my hair is coconut oil. Coconut oil has many different benefits for your hair, it's a super product.

  2. Your blog is the prettiest thing, it's just beautiful! I've recently coloured my hair and know all about it feeling unhealthy due to frequent root touch ups :D I've only just started to read the ingredients in shampoos and I adore the OGX ones as they don't contain any hidden drying ingredients and make it feel so much healthier :D xx
