We all have those bad hair days, when no matter what, your hair seems impossible to handle. But what happens when bad hair days turn into bad hair weeks and months? When hair becomes weak, lifeless, and prone to breakage? If this happens to you, read on. Because we’ve created this first-aid hair guide especially for you.
What causes dry and damaged hair?
Genetics is the first cause that comes to mind. But in reality, there are many environmental and hygienic factors that affect our hair, including: humidity, nutrition, emotional state, chemical treatments and more. Changes in any of the above can result in dry, lifeless hair, faded color, split ends, and hair that is difficult to control and style.
Minimize damage and repair hair
Shampoo less frequently
If your hair isn’t oily, and you aren’t exposed to extreme air pollution and dirt, you can definitely shampoo it only once or twice a week. Shampooing hair daily, strips it of its natural oils and may cause it to become dry.
When you brush your hair, you’re also massaging your scalp and increasing the blood flow to your hair follicles, thus nourishing and strengthening hair. Brushing also helps in distributing the essential layer of oil which accumulates on the scalp and moisturizes hair. Aggressive brushing may stretch and tear hair, that’s why it’s recommended to gently brush damp hair, and apply a mask or conditioner for easier brushing.
Protect your hair against damage caused by the weather
Weather can definitely affect hair, if it’s not treated properly. During the summer, the combination of the scorching sun, chlorine from the pool, and salt in sea water, weaken hair and cause it to lose its elasticity. That’s why using a mask at least once a week, is very important, especially in the summer. During the winter, when dry weather causes your hair to frizz, use a serum that will rejuvenate and moisturize your hair.
Nutrition – not just for your body
Good nutrition can greatly enhance the way your hair looks, making it shinier and more flexible. In order to provide your hair with the nutrients it needs, it’s important to eat foods that contain a high percentage of essential fatty acids, such as avocado, salmon and olive oil. Quick fix and extreme diets may damage hair, so maintaining a balanced and controlled diet is extremely important.
And most importantly – moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!
Dry hair tends to break easily, which is the first sign that your hair needs more moisture. In this case, an intensive treatment will do the trick – a nutrient-rich and restorative treatment will leave your hair feeling silky and give it a beautiful shine. These treatments are usually sold at salons, and can be quite expensive. They also require us to carve out time in our busy schedules to get to the salon and purchase them.
