Find yourself with damaged hair? Look, no shame necessary! Developing damaged hair can be pretty easy to do, with so many different elements that can cause damage to our hair it’s certainly not uncommon. Before you get frustrated with damaged hair and find yourself feeling discouraged, we want you to know that it doesn’t have to be as difficult as you think to fix. We’re problem solvers here at Lionesse and just for you we’re sharing some advice for repairing damaged hair. And as promised, our advice isn’t super difficult to apply to your own hair care routine.
Use A Moisturizing Shampoo
Did you think all shampoo and conditioning products were created equally? Well, they’re not. When you find yourself with damaged hair, one of the first things you should do is swap out your shampoo and conditioning products. Even if you’re using a quality formula in both products, experts stress the importance of using shampoo and conditioners that are super moisturizing when repairing damaged hair. Moisture works wonders on damaged hair because damaged hair tends to be lacking in moisture. Makes sense, right? Switch your products to those that are focused on adding moisture and hydration into your hair to start gently repairing your damaged hair.
Add A Conditioning Treatment
As we said, moisture and adding more of it into your hair care routine is going to be crucial in helping to repair your damaged locks. While swapping out your shampoo and conditioning products are one step, another great tip to repairing your hair is to add a deep conditioning treatment into your weekly hair care routine. You only need to use this type of treatment once a week, but it can make a major difference in healing the damage. Deep conditioning treatments are great because they’re incredibly powerful and concentrated in adding extreme moisture into the hair.
Cut Back on Heat
We’re not saying you need to avoid using heat altogether, but to help your hair repair from any hair damage cutting back on how often you use heat for a while can be vital to the process. Since heat can be the cause of a lot of damage, cutting back on how often you use it will give your hair a chance to have a break and repair itself much quicker. Allow your hair to air dry and be free of any heat as many days as you can throughout the week–your hair will thank you for this one!
Get A Trim
When your hair is damaged, getting rid of as much of the damage as possible can be helpful to prevent the damage from spreading, so to speak. A great way to do this is to make an appointment with your hairstylist for a haircut. Cutting off some of the damage at the ends of your hair can keep from any split ends/damage from working its way up towards the root of your hair and leave much healthier, stronger hair behind.
