Dry, Damaged, Or Brittle Hair?
Is your hair especially dry? Or has the damage from chemical treatments and heated styling tools finally taken its toll? Maybe you spent too much time out in the sun over the summer, or too much time swimming in salt water or chlorine? If your hair is dry, damaged or brittle it is time to make a few positive changes to your hair care routine.
Head To The Beauty Salon
First up, head to the beauty salon to talk to your stylist about your best options. This may include cutting off the dead and damaged hair, taking a break from chemicals and harsh styling, or moving to a gentle rinse to colour your hair. Don’t worry, it’s not as dire as it sounds, and it won’t last forever.
Get A New Pillowcase
We all enjoy matching linens, but laying all night on a cotton pillow case will suck the moisture from both your hair and face – even if the thread count is high. Not only that, but the friction of your hair and skin against cotton is further damaging. Instead switch to a silk or satin pillowcase, or a pillowcase designed for beauty.
Upgrade Your Haircare Products
While at your beauty salon your stylist will be sure to suggest a few haircare products that will address your concerns. While we all love a great salon-quality product, we must remember that most are made with harsh chemical ingredients that in most cases have a short-term positive effect but are more damaging in the long-term. On top of that, the chemicals are bad for your hair, body, and environment.
Alternatively, why not upgrade to a natural blend of hair care products designed to address your specific concerns. Our ingredients of choice for severely damaged or otherwise fragile hair is olive oil or a combination of shea milk and honey. Our gentle shampoos, conditioners, detanglers, hair masques and leave-in conditioners hydrate as they cleanse – restoring lustre and shine, and strengthening your damaged hair.
You will be pleasantly surprised at how just a few small changes can transform your dry, damaged, and brittle hair in as little as 2 weeks of healthier alternatives.
