Finding the right hair care routine is not easy. Too often, you end up with dry, brittle hair that isn’t the ideal look you were aiming for. As the summer season approaches and temperatures rise, it becomes even more difficult to maintain healthy, moisturized hair. Increased exposure to the sun can have a significant impact on hair.
It’s difficult, but not impossible, to get a type of hair that you can easily style without fear of breaking. Experts know this. In this article, we have studied their advice on tackling the mystery of fragile hair and the steps needed to adjust your hair health. Consider issues such as heat exposure and the use of styling tools. Read below for more information.
Excessive use of heat
After taking a shower, most of us habitually grab a straightener or blow dryer to dry our hair quickly and try to style it the way we want. However, this haste can make your hair dry and brittle. Does this mean that you should stop using heated styling tools altogether? The answer is no, but experts recommend that you use them in moderation.
“For those who use styling tools on their hair, we recommend using them only 3-4 times a week,” says celebrity hair stylist Linh Phan. He suggests you keep the temperature below 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Hair scholar and scientist Dominique Berg also suggests avoiding excessive heat to moisten the hair.
Intense bleaching of your hair
If you overbleach your hair, it can cause Great damage, However, proper care of the scalp can restore it and prevent further damage. Berg suggests: “Invest in proper care routines for your scalp and hair follicles to make sure you grow the best hair you can, so you can work on colors and treatments without fear of brittleness or dryness. “
Pausing bleach can reduce the brittleness and dryness of your hair. If your situation does not allow this, use a deep conditioning mask at night. This nourishes and strengthens your hair as you sleep. Simply wrap it in a turban or towel to prevent it from leaking or getting caught in your pillow.
“When water gets into the fibers of the hair, it weakens the internal structure, makes it brittle, and can dry out over time,” says Berg. Washing hair removes hair buildup and dirt, but frequent washing can open the cuticles of the hair and allow water to penetrate and weaken the internal structure.
With frequent washing, shampoos can also wash away the waxes and natural oils that form the protective layer of hair. The recommended cleaning frequency will vary from person to person. Talking to a hair specialist can help you decide this.
Hair care products that spoil the texture
Another expert hair stylist, Andrew Fitzsimons, suggests choosing a hair care product that matches the texture of your hair and avoids damaging it. “Frisz and oily hair tend to be on the dry side and are prone to breakage. Due to its tight curl pattern, natural oil cannot easily pass through the hair shaft.”
If your hair shows signs of excessive dryness, consider reducing some of the products you use and deep conditioning at least once a week. Linh Phan recommends covering your hair with a bonnet or silk pillowcase to protect your hair during sleep. This may not give immediate results, but it will improve over time.
Excessive use of sulfate
Dominique Berg claims that many of the hair care products on the market (especially cheap ones) contain harmful synthetic ingredients that can remove hair from natural oils. Sulfates are especially harmful. Sulfates, commonly found in shampoos, dry the hair and irritate the scalp.
Castrol, coconut, or Argan oils. These clean the hair without removing the essential oils that are contained in the hair and are essential for healthy growth.
Dry your hair completely
Hair overheating is a problem, but air drying is not the solution. Berg said: “The longer the hair is wet, the greater the damage to the internal structure. Drying the hair with a blow dryer in a cool environment is an important way to minimize the damage.”
the study Air drying reveals that it can damage your hair as much as you use too much heat. Too much heat can damage the outer surface of the strands, but air drying the hair will damage the inner surface.
Trimming sessions at a hair salon can be time consuming, but regular hair trimming can really improve the texture of your hair. “By trimming your hair at least once every eight weeks, you can keep your hair healthy and eliminate split ends,” says Andrew Fitzsimmons.
Taking care of your hair is a well spent time. Healthy, moisturized hair is hard to come off, which gives us all the confidence we need.
