How to Prevent and Repair Heat-Damaged Hair

This is what makes women: if nature gave them charming curls, they certainly strive to straighten them. Owners of straight hair do the opposite: they do a perm, sleep in curlers and use stylers in order to get luxurious curls. Sometimes it leads to negative results such as heat-damaged hair which is dry, brittle, hard to comb. How can you prevent it or help your hair if it's already ruined by stylers? Check out this article!

   
The first thing you have to do in order to restore hair is to forget about stylers, flat irons, and preferably even a hairdryer for the next few months. Your hair now needs extremely gentle care. Cut the split and burned hair ends every 15 days. It will give your hair a fresher look.

You can also buy a nice deep-acting conditioner for damaged hair that contains keratin. It’s recommendable to use this conditioner twice a day, leaving it on wet hair for a few minutes to thoroughly nourish and soften it. Another option is a cetyl alcohol conditioner which helps to keep the moisture in your hair.

The second step is a haircut. If you cut off the split and burnt hair ends in time, then the hair will not break off higher, which will increase the chance of keeping your hair length from being cut off. A short haircut is a remedy for severely burned hair because it’s unlikely to be restored. It‘s better to cut damaged hair and grow new, properly care for it, and take vitamins and minerals. Don't be afraid to change your look, especially since a short, stylish haircut that emphasizes the beautiful shape of the head and facial features looks much better than a mass of lifeless and sloppy looking hair.
