01. Avoid hot tools for a while
The best way to prevent further damage is to avoid heat styling your hair, at least until your hair is back to normal again. This helps restore the lost moisture and elasticity, thereby slowly nourishing your strands back to health. And if you do need to style your hair, don’t forget to spritz on a generous amount of a heat protectant spray like the TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray to protect your hair and minimise damage to a great extent.
02. Use hair masks
Hair masks are a godsend for anyone with dry and damaged hair. They contain nourishing, moisturising and repairing ingredients, which penetrate deep into your hair shaft to repair damage and restore it back to its natural glory. Using a hair mask like the TIGI Bed Head Urban Anti and Dotes Resurrection Treatment Mask will deliver your hair with a boost of hydration and ensure that they grow back healthy in no time.
03. Go in for a haircut
If your hair is really burnt or damaged, consider going in for a chop. It is a great way to cut away the damage and allows your hair to grow back healthy. Additionally, this is a great way to give yourself an amazing new makeover.
04. Hot oil massages
Another great remedy to treat damaged hair is to give yourself a hot oil massage at least once or twice a week. Massaging your scalp with coconut, olive or almond oil like the Dove Elixir Hair Fall Rescue Rose & Almond Hair Oil helps to nourish your hair follicles, hydrate your scalp and promotes healthy hair growth.
05. Switch to a hydrating shampoo and conditioner
In order to nourish your strands, it is really important for you to reconsider the kind of hair care products you are using. To begin with, switch to a cleaner shampoo and conditioner formulated with moisturising ingredients like the Love Beauty and Planet Muru Muru Butter & Rose Shampoo. Additionally, always end your hair washing session with a hair conditioner and cold-water rinse. This will help seal in the nutrients and moisture and make your hair appear smoother and softer.
