These tips for damaged hair can also help you prevent damage this summer when the sun’s rays start to dry out your hair and make it more prone to breakage.
Keep these tips for damaged hair in your back pocket and you’ll always have an emergency plan at your fingertips when you hair starts to look a little less than lovely.
1. Use Less Heat
I know most of us girls are addicted to our straight irons, curling irons and hot rollers, but one of the most important tips for damaged hair is to give your hair a break and use less heat!
Try starting out using no appliances just once a week.
Pick a day where you aren’t super picky about who sees you with your hair less than perfect and just enjoy your hair in its natural state.
Work up to not using appliances twice a week, and if you dare, more days a week.
If you’re really brave, let your hair air-dry or at least dry it just a few minutes instead, just to give it a head start on air-drying naturally.
Dry hair hates heat and it will start to break faster, preventing it from healing.
