Damage Barring any health concerns or issues, damaged hair is a direct result of what you do to it. Whether you’re in love with your styling tools or regularly spend hours with your stylist, altering the color or texture of your hair can be hard on your follicles. Damage is much easier to prevent than it is to fix. In fact, there isn’t really a fix for damaged hair, short of chopping it off and starting over. However, you can mask damage with heavy moisturizers and sealants.
Start with a heat protectant spray. You probably have one at home, and busy woman that you are, you might fail to use one on a regular basis. Start. A good heat protectant spray will allow you to style your hair to your heart’s content while drastically reducing the damage done. It can also be helpful to lower the heat on your flat iron, curling iron and blow dryer. Use the lowest setting that will still style your hair.
After you get a fresh haircut (you will need to with damaged hair) regularly condition your ends. This is where damage starts: the individual strands of hair begin splitting at the bottom, and that split slowly works its way up the hair shaft, causing irreparable damage along the way. Conditioning your ends helps to protect them and minimize splitting, keeping the rest of your hair safe.
For this reason, you should also get regular trims. Even if you’re trying to grow your hair out, cutting off the split ends will actually make the growing-out process faster. If you wait too long between trims, the split ends will move up your hair and you’ll have to get even more cut off.
