Do you have a very busy schedule? Have you been struggling to make time to look after your hair. have you been noticing that your hair has become dull and dry and lacks shine?
Our hair is often our most overlooked and neglected body part, and due to our busy and rushed routines, we subject our hair to harsh chemicals and repeated heat styling in an effort to make it look presentable. While our hair does have a magnificently resilient quality, there comes a time when it cannot take enough.
The most common reason for hair damage is dehydration. As hair loses moisture, it becomes frizzy, brittle, and prone to breakage. It almost ‘looks’ thirsty. The only way to reverse hair damage is to repair the hair shafts by rejuvenating the hair. Nourishing it back to health and repairing the bonds within them.
The bonds within our hair become weakened and damaged, and you can visibly notice the difference in the texture and thickness of your hair. The hair strands become thinner and drier, and the hair quality diminishes. Your once healthy and bouncy hair becomes lifeless, limp, and dull. Hair needs attention, love, and care.
Often overlooked, our hair is so important for our physical appearance. Without hair, our entire appearance can change, which can shatter many people’s confidence. This is why it is important to recognize and treat hair damage early in life before it gets too late.
We have established that hydrated hair is healthy hair. Therefore the goal is to maximize hydration within hair strands and retain it. Depending on the cause of your hair damage, it can be treated by incorporating the following in your hair care regime:
Try to limit blow drying and straightening your hair for some time. Give your hair a break from all your heat styling tools and allow it to regenerate and breathe. Heat styling can damage the shape of your hair’s keratin strands, making them weaker, less elastic, and more prone to breakage.
Not everyone has the same hair type. Visit a hairstylist and determine your hair type if you don’t know. Invest in a shampoo and conditioner that is best suited for your hair type and limit the number of times you wash your hair. Hair follicles have naturally occurring sebum glands that release oil that lubricates the scalp and hair strand. Recurrent washing can strip the scalp of these oils and make it drier. Try to use a milk shampoo and conditioner that suits your hair type.
Oiling the scalp once a week or more can help increase circulation in the scalp and provide oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the scalp and hair follicles.
Keratin is a protein that protects the hair strand and gets damaged over time with heat and chemical exposure. Getting regular protein treatments can nourish the hair and improve its quality of hair.
