Damaged Hair Ends: How to Help Your Hair Reboot
1. Use a split end hair repair system.
We are all about using a shampoo and conditioner that’s designed for your hair type. For those with split or damaged hair ends, use the Suave Professionals Split End Rescue Shampoo and the Suave Professionals Split End Rescue Conditioner. Enriched with PEC complex, this system works to reduce split ends up to 70%.
2. Get regular trims.
The best way to get rid of damaged hair ends (and promote healthy hair) is to get regular trims. This doesn’t have to include a dramatic haircut, but simply an inch (or more) depending on the level of damage. In general, opt to visit your hairdresser every six to eight weeks. By cutting your hair ends, you’ll be preventing further fracturing up the hair strands. Trust us, this simple technique will help you the long run.
3. Minimize heat styling.
Heated tools whether it’s blowdryers, straightening irons, curling tongs or heated rollers can cause damage to your hair ends, especially if you use them on the daily. To help your damaged hair, try to cut down on their use. It is important to give the hair a break a once in a while so the hair and the scalp and try to repair itself. If you find that you do have to use heat styling tools, make sure to protect your hair with some heat protectant like some of the TRESemmé Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray.
4. Use a hair mask.
We love hair masks for our home hair care regimen. Usually creamy in texture, hair masks work to repair dry and damaged hair ends as they boost moisture into the hair. Try out the Dove Nutritive Solutions Intensive Repair Deep Treatment Mask whose formula can make your hair 10x more resilient!
5. Use leave-in conditioner.
Dry and damaged hair generally needs more moisture. One easy thing that you can do is use some leave-in conditioner. This daily product can help you to smooth out any damage as it leaves your hair feeling smooth.
6. Comb your hair before you wash it.
You’re probably in the camp of brushing or combing your hair after you wash it. However, those with damaged ends should opt to brush or comb it before they wash. Since hair is generally weaker when it’s wet, this will enable you to prevent some of the wear and tear that comes post-washing. Doing this will also help to get out any knots and detangles.
