Most days, it’s hard to resist the allure of styling tools. Years of repeated heat styling, however, can lead to dry and damaged hair. Do not despair- no matter how bad your heat-damaged hair looks right now, there are ways to regain your hairs natural health and beauty!
1. Minimize Heat Styling
Heat and styling tools are most likely the culprits causing the damage to your hair. If you can go cold-turkey and eliminate the usage, that’s would be a fantastic first step to healing your hair. But if that is not realistic, try to at least minimize the use of heat styling tools. Try no-heat hair styles and drying techniques as an alternative.
2. Use Thermal Protectors
If heat styling tools are inevitable, make sure the first step of your styling process includes protecting your hair with a heat protective spray. These special sprays create a protective barrier to prevent hair cuticles from cracking due to extreme heat exposure. Consistent usage when utilizing heat styling tools will minimize the potential heat damage to your hair.
3. Nourish Your Hair
Heat-damaged hair can be extremely dry, so it needs to be hydrated in order to be repaired. Jaci Reparative Shampoo helps hair regain its natural moisture and shine. The Reparative Shampoo replenishes vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to your hair to repair split ends and smooth out frizz while keeping it free from product build-up.
4. Don’t Forget To Condition Your Hair
For many hair types, using shampoo alone, is not enough. Conditioner usage adds an extra level of hydration to the hair cuticles. Heat-damaged hair will benefit from intense moisture provided by the Jaci Reparative Conditioner. This rich and luxurious conditioner complements the Reparative Shampoo and contains emollient botanicals, such as shea butter, sunflower extract, and coconut essential oil to help your hair quickly recover.
5. Be Gentle When Brushing
Damaged hair is fragile, and it becomes even more fragile when it’s wet. It’s preferable to gently brush your hair only when it’s dry- and work on tangles by starting with the ends of your hair. Don’t force your comb through tangles. A soft-toothed comb is one of the best hair care tools to use for heat-damaged hair.
6. Eat And Drink For Your Hair
Believe it or not, your diet and water intake have an impact on the health of your hair. Drinking plenty of water will keep your scalp hydrated, while eating a balanced diet can promote healthy hair growth. Incorporate green leafy vegetables, berries, sweet potatoes, fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids, and eggs into your meals for healthy hair.
