Everyone wants healthy, shiny, smooth hair. All the straighteners and blow dryers we use to make our hair look beautiful really puts a strain on our hair. The damage is most commonly seen as split ends. This is how to repair damages hair.
How to remove split ends by trimming
Grab a small section of the hair and carefully twist them in a gentle downward motion. This will cause the split ends to stick out.
Carefully snip into the twist with sharp scissors. Don't cut right through; just cut into the thickness to remove the damaged cuticles and give a natural layered effect.
Be careful to cut roughly the same amount from each twist.
How to remove split ends without trimming your hair
Although it is impossible to completely fix a split end. There are ways to somewhat repair them.
You can temporarily cure split ends by using products such as intensive conditioners, leave in conditioners and shine serum. Don't forget that ultimately if you do not want to deal with split ends, you should avoid brushing your hair too hard and avoid using curling irons too many times.
If your hair seems dryer than usual, you can work to get the moisture level back up by taking a few pampering steps. So her is how to repair and avoid dry hair.
How to fix dry hair
Don't skimp out on the shampoo
Shampoos with extra proteins and humectants should be used to repair damaged hair. Also, don't forget to use a leave-on conditioner every day before drying and styling your hair.
Get a protein boost
Protein treatments help moisten dry hair and repair damaged hair by filling in the damaged cuticle. If your hair is really damaged then go for the intense treatment, otherwise go for the lighter treatments.Use a moisturizing conditioner after application as some protein treatments can harden the hair and cause it to become stiff.
Use a heat-activated moisturizing conditioner once a week
Apply generously to your hair and cover your head with a plastic cap. Sit under a hair dryer for 30 minutes or more, since the heat locks in the deep conditioner so that it penetrates the hair.
Don't wash your hair too often
Shampoo's primary function is to kill bacteria. With that comes huge damage to your hair. Instead of washing with shampoo everyday, you should just condition it. Try to limit the use of shampoo to once a week at most.
Avoid blow dryers and hot irons
These basically fry the hair. Try using rollers to style instead. or at least put the coolest setting or your blow dryers.
Use oil and vinegar.
First, rub olive oil into your hair and cover with a soft cloth. Let sit overnight, then rinse with white vinegar as your conditioner before you shampoo. The vinegar will reduce dandruff and add luster and shine to dry hair, and the oil helps repair damaged hair.
Get an egg wash
Get egg whites and mix it with water and honey. Wet your hair with warm water and apply the mix. leave it in for 10 minutes and then rinse.
If all else fails and you are really desperate, try putting a little bit of mayo in your hair over night. Rinse it in the morning.
