Hair Treatments For Your Dry And Damaged Hair

There are so many people out there who love experimenting with their hair. And honestly, why not? It’s fun and you can be as creative as you want. Along the way, you might damage it if you’re not careful enough, but you only live once right?

Sometimes just washing and conditioning your hair won’t be enough. Hair treatments, masks, serums, and oils can work wonders to moisturize and nourish your hair, making it healthier and shinier. Hair can be difficult to manage – sometimes just waiting for it to air dry isn’t ideal. However, using a blow drier regularly can really damage your hair. Straighteners can do as just as much damage, so use an oil or serum that will ensure your hair doesn’t get damaged too much.

Your hair treatments don’t have to be fancy or expensive, the health of your hair can be achieved in the most natural way -with natural products. Let’s see a few treatments you can do to provide your hair with shine, health, volume, and no breakage.

Reviving your hair after it has been damaged may seem like an impossible thing to do, but it isn’t. Hair treatments don’t have to be complicated, trust me – it is easy and you don’t have to go out of your way to get the most expensive ones.

1.Trimming

Trimming your hair should be done whether it’s damaged or not. Cutting your hair is not linked with hair growth. However, it will ensure your hair grows healthier. You can cut your hair every ten to eight weeks if you want to keep the length that you already have. If you want to grow your hair longer aim for ten to twelve weeks. It all depends on how healthy your hair is. You can get away without a cut for more than twelve weeks and just three or four times a year. But that’s all up to the health of your hair. You can always ask your hairstylist.

 

2. Take A Break From Blow Drying And Straighteners

You probably already know that straightening your hair can be very damaging to your hair. I am a living proof that whenever I was in a rush and needed to straighten my hair quickly, I shot up the temperature thinking that will only accelerate the process. Meanwhile, the damage that it does to your hair is pretty bad. The higher the temperature, the worse it is as it can actually melt your hair if you aren’t careful enough.

But if you want your hair to be healthy, try to reduce the use of straighteners, curling wands, and blow drying. I know it is difficult, but give your hair at least a few weeks of a break. It will thank you.

 

3. Massage Your Scalp

Many will try to put the majority of the focus elsewhere when it all begins at the roots. Massaging your scalp will promote hair growth. If you do this treatment every day, blood will flow to your hair cells which will stimulate hair growth. Try doing this at least two to five minutes every day. Plus it is very relaxing too, so it’s a win-win situation.

 

4. Hair Masks

Just like you probably take care of your skin regularly with masks, you can do that with your hair too. Hair masks are helpful for damaged, split ends and more than that. Masks will nourish, moisturize and deeply care for your hair. The good thing about masks is that they are helpful for any type of hair. You can use all natural ingredients to mix and make it at home. Everything you need, you might already have in your fridge.

5. Oils

If you are a fan of blonde hair and bleaching it every few months, then your hair is in much need of hydration. When you are bleaching it, it will make your dry, weak hair hydrated. You can use natural oils such as coconut, argan, jojoba oil. Normally you use the oil on your hair (not your scalp) wrap it up and wait for 30 minutes. Wash your hair afterward like you normally would.

 

6. Let The Hair Down

You might be a person that loves putting your hair in a ponytail or a bun, it is extremely easy and doesn’t require using any sort of heat on your hair. Great! However, give it a break every now and then since all you’re doing is risking your hair to be pulled from its roots. Careful not to pull or tighten your ponytails or buns too much because, on top of everything, you will also have excruciating headaches.

On another hand, always go visit a professional and seek their advice. Every type of hair is different and you should research and find whatever suits you better. What might be helpful for someone, may not be helpful for you or the other way around.
