Everyone wants voluptuously stylish hair, but some don’t know where to start. Sure there are plenty of products out there that can help disguise dead ends for healthy hair, but they only work temporarily.
Here are some natural ways that can help keep your hair from not only looking damaged, but from actually being damaged!
Trim It Up
Some people absolutely cringe at the thought of getting a hair trim because they don’t want their hairdresser cutting it too short. Newsflash, a hair TRIM is far different from a hair CUT. A simple trim every two months is probably the fastest way to get rid of those dead ends. And no one will hardly even notice the length difference.
In addition, some people (especially girls) think it will keep their hair from growing longer. In fact, a hair trim does the direct opposite! Ladies, your hair won’t grow with damaged ends. The ends are already dead! In order to grow a longer length, you need to keep the ends fresh and healthy so they remain strong.
If you’re one of those people who use straighteners and curling irons to style hair, it is EXTREMELY important to apply a heat protection spray to your hair before styling. A highly recommended product is Tresemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. Just be sure to have fully dry hair before applying!
Surely it’s not something you should do every day to your hair, but a good deep condition every once in awhile will help your hair remain soft and bouncy. In addition, it’s helpful to prevent split ends, but it won’t cure the already damaged hair. Usually, you only need about a penny size in the palm of your hand and apply it around the ends of damp hair.
Moroccan Oil is my personal favorite because it smells so great!
Protect The Hair
Since summer is around the corner, it’s highly important to protect your hair from the sun to prevent damage. Ways to do this is to wear a hat outside, pull the hair back, and/or sit under a shaded spot. Yeah it’s fun to let the hair flow on the beach, but you want to protect it as much as possible.
Comb > Brush
This rule mainly applies to when you first get out of the shower. Brushing your hair aggressively while wet can cause split ends. To prevent this from happening, be sure to wait a little while for your hair to dry before applying a comb or thin brush to it gently. Always be picky with what you run through your hair when it is wet and knotty!
