Hot showers feel so great, but did you know that it wreaks havoc on your hair and scalp. When the water is too hot, it strips the essential oils that your hair and scalp require which leads to dryness.
To properly dry your hair after a washing, it is very important to keep in mind that towel drying is one of the biggest causes of damage to the hair. When the hair it wet it is prone to damage from rubbing with a towel, causing some of the hairs to become tangled and stretched to the breaking point from the towel. This caused damage to the cuticle, fizziness and split ends. Gently pat your hair in the direction of growth, this may take longer to dry but you will notice a difference after a few haircuts, on how great your hair looks and feels.
Keep it Trimmed
Keeping your hair trimmed regularly, about every 6 weeks, will eliminate split ends and give you a healthier head of hair.
Using the Right Tools
When your hair is wet it is most vulnerable to damage. It is important when you are combing through wet hair to only use a wide-toothed comb and gently work out the tangles, avoid using a brush which will cause split ends and damage.
