So, we all like to experiment with our hair, whether it be dying it a crazy colour or curling it into an afro... we've all been there! But these things believe it or not, do actually cause your hair more damage than you may realise. Firstly...
I think we all remember the time that the first pair of GHD's went on sale, every girl was going a little crazy! Waves were not cool for us girls. Every time we straighten our hair, the perfectly healthy hair strands we have get burnt and damaged, i kid you not. So, put down your straighteners for a while (or if you cant, don't use them so often) and refresh your hair of its natural oils, i promise you will notice a difference. If you are a hair straightener addict and cant, use heat protection treatments. Any expert will tell you (or lecture you) that in order to prevent your hair getting damanged and breaking, you NEED to apply some kind of heat protecting hair care treatment before putting a high heat on your hair. I think most people will agree, Tigi Bed Head is always a favourite. Not to pricey and works great. This is a brilliant heat protector and de-frizzer, that i would say works best on damp hair before drying.
This will be short and sweet as its the most obvious thing. If you have long hair, it is important to get your hair cut regularly in order to keep it looking healthy. The older your hair gets, the more fragile it is. They generally say on average every 6-8 weeks. Don't ever feel like because your hair feels smooth it doesn't need cutting, you may be wrong and end up damaging your hair.
How important is your hair to you?
There are a lot of things i regret in life and not looking after my hair properly is one of them. Give yourself a couple of hours a week to pamper your hair, rehydrate it. It is just as important to do this as it is to moisturise your skin. Get down to Boots and find the best hair mask you can, you wont regret it when its left your hair feeling silky smooth and hydrated. Here's a hair mask i would recommend using... my own!
Coconut and honey hair mask, here's what you need:
1 tbsp.Organic Raw Honey
Mix all the ingredients together and heat it up a little. Apply it all over to wet or dry hair (i suggest wet). Wrap your hair in a towel and leave it on for around 30 min's so it soaks in. Sit down, paint your nails and pamper yourself as much as you can whist waiting. Wash your hair out using your normal shampoo and conditioner it as normal also, you will notice the difference!
