How to fix heat damaged hair


At some point in your journey of dressing up your natural hair, you may make a choice that is to heat your hair to achieve a curly or straight hair style. But this is the problem. Excessive use of these heated styling tools can seriously damage your hair.

If your hair is damaged by heat, the heat from tools such as hot combs, hair dryers, and hair straighteners will cause the cuticle of your hair to lose moisture and dry out. To prevent this kind of heat damage, you can apply a heat protectant to your hair before styling. In addition, you can also use the hair dryer to replace the heating tool to achieve your favorite hair style. The hair dryer will have less heat than the heating tool, or try other heat-free methods to straighten natural hair.

Don't neglect the conditioner in the days of washing your hair!

It is a huge mistake not to condition the hair after washing it. The conditioner makes the hair gentler and prevents hair loss and thinning. After using the conditioner, the wavy hair looks healthier and brighter. We recommend focusing on product ingredients when choosing the best conditioner. Argan oil, coconut oil and aloe vera are great for repairing heat damage.
After washing your hair, you can dry your hair naturally and quickly with the help of a microfiber towel. Therefore, the hair dryer does not need to be used, or at least the drying time can be reduced. This avoids contact with heat.


DIY hair mask

Black women prefer DIY hair mask, which is also very suitable for heating damaged hair.
Natural products are extremely effective for hair care. Milk and honey are very convenient and helpful to make hair masks. Mix ½ – 1 cup of milk (it depends on the length of your hair) and 1 tablespoon of honey. After washing your hair, apply it to wet hair and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. It can be repeated twice a week to effectively repair the hair.
