1 Symptoms of damaged hair

If your hair is showing the following symptoms, it is important to be mindful as it may be damaged and in need of immediate care.

  • Rough: Instead of feeling soft when running your fingers through and stroking your hair from root to tip, it feels rough.
  • Dryness: Dull, frizzy, and easily breakable hair are all indications of dry and frizzy hair.
  • Split ends: If your hair easily falls out when combing and you notice white dots at the ends of your hair, it may be experiencing split ends.
  • Messy hair: Damaged hair is not only dull but also easily tangled.
  • Loss of elasticity: Gently stretching your hair and experiencing breakage or minimal shrinkage indicates damaged hair.

2 Causes

Lack of moisture

When hair lacks moisture, it loses its shine and becomes rough and dry. It is crucial to provide sufficient moisture to maintain healthy and shiny hair.

Unsuitable hair care products

Using low-quality hair care products or products that contain harmful chemicals can lead to hair damage over time. It is important to choose high-quality and suitable products for your hair.

Continuous use of styling products

Frequent use of heat styling tools, such as blow dryers and curling irons, or chemical services can dry out and weaken your hair. Limiting the use of these styling products to a few times a week can help minimize damage.

3 Ways to take care

Replenish moisture

Providing your hair with essential moisture is the most effective way to repair damaged hair. Regularly conditioning your hair for about 15 minutes and washing it once a week can yield positive results.

Replenish moisture Use conditioner

Make it a habit to use conditioner after shampooing to complete and enhance the effectiveness of your daily hair care routine. Conditioner not only makes your hair smoother but also supplies moisture to treat dry, frizzy, and split ends.

Regular use of conditioner can prevent future dryness and brittleness.

Wash your hair properly

Gently shampoo your hair and massage your scalp to stimulate hair follicles. Avoid scratching or rubbing your hair and scalp too vigorously. After shampooing, towel dry your hair gently or let it air dry instead of drying it completely.

Supplying essential nutrients to your hair internally and externally is an effective way to repair damaged hair. You can use specialized hair care products such as hair serum, vitamin H, or natural essential oils.
