Keeping up with hair trends comes with a price tag! And no, we’re not just talking about the money spent on fancy hair treatments, but also the after-effects of undergoing chemical treatments to look on-point. Managing unruly hair after the treatment begins to wear out is a struggle only girls who’ve ever got their hair permed, coloured or straightened will know.
While the transition from chemically-treated hair to your natural hair is all sorts of challenging, mastering a few sneaky hairstyling as well as hair care tips can do the trick.
You no longer have to procrastinate before getting on board a chic hair trend. Here are some saves that can help you flaunt great hair hassle-free.
#1: Protective hairstyles to the rescue
Hairstyles that create tension on the hair can cause further damage.
You’re already trying hard to keep up with the transition from chemically-treated hair to natural hair. It is, therefore, ideal to opt for protective hairstyles such as weaves, braids or loose chignons.
Tighter, pulled-back hairstyles can damage your roots and thin out your hairline from the constant tugging and pulling. Protective hairstyles will not only put less tension on the hair but also keep the ends tucked away.
#2: Go chop-chop, maybe
Going from chemically-treated hair to your natural hair texture can be an annoying process. The hair at the roots is the first ones to lose texture and colour, while the ends are intact. This can, at times, make you look funny.
The best way to get rid of the chemically-treated hair in one go is to for a big chop! If you’re fine with going short, then jump onto this solution. After all, you’ll get a chance to experiment with your hair length and you’ll also be able to understand your hair texture better.
And, it’s always good to switch things up every now and then, isn’t it?
#3: Play with hair accessories
Hair accessories are life-saving tools for any girl out there who struggles to keep her hair in place. While going outdoors with a wet head is a strict no-no, it’s best that you bring out some hair accessories and start using them in everyday life.
A scarf or turban can either cover up your hair entirely or be used to accentuate your hair game. On days when you have no time for a wash, play with barrettes or cute studded, printed hair bands that can keep hair off your face and at the same time, instantly amp up your glamour quotient.
