There are numerous issues someone may have with their hair, but a popular complaint is breakage and/or damaged hair. Now, what causes hair breakage? Everyone knows that heat styling causes breakage, but did you know that breakage can also be caused by using poor quality products, brushing your hair too aggressively, sleeping on wet hair, the weather, hormones, not getting needed trims, and the list goes on. Keeping your hair strong and healthy is essentially achieved when you can maintain a balance between moisture and protein. Now, you may get sucked into buying all the fancy products to help with this, but aside from good health and nutrition, healthy hair really starts with a good shampoo and conditioner. Everyone’s hair is different and therefore shampoo and conditioner needs vary from person to person, however, everyone should still be reaching for a shampoo and conditioner that has been dermatologist tested, cruelty free, free from paraben, sulfates, and formaldehydes, and color and keratin treatment safe. Many of these high-quality shampoos and conditioners are gluten free and will also provide UV protection for your hair.
Another must for those of you that heat style your hair is a high-quality heat protectant, seriously don’t miss this step or you might as well not heat style your hair. But what do you do when the damage has already been done, when your hair is dry and damaged, and your split ends never seem to go away? Is there a simple way to repair dry damaged hair at home?
The simple answer is no. Don’t get me wrong, there are some amazing treatments and products that can prevent further damage, however the only way to repair split-ends is to cut them off. Start getting regular trims and overtime you will notice your hair transform before your eyes. But what do you do if you are someone that refuses to cut your hair?
Well, at the very least you should be looking for some good quality products to help maintain the health of your hair. At Frankie Salon, we recommend regular in salon or at home treatments, like the K18 molecular repair hair mask which helps repair your hair from the inside out.
Another great option is Oribe’s Split End Seal which mends up to 94% of split-ends when applied and prevents the hair from further splitting up the strand. To sum it up, if you are looking to get your hair strong and healthy, you need to get regular trims, buy good shampoo and conditioner, and never skip out on the heat protection.
