How to Revive Damaged Hair for Fall
Fall is here and we couldn’t be more excited. But, the summer months have taken a toll on our hair and we don’t want to spend all season paying for it. We've gathered a few easy tips and tricks to help your hair recover from the summer daze so you can shine this season.
Get a Trim: Trimming your hair every six-to-eight weeks is essential for keeping your it healthy. Snipping away breakage and split ends stops the damage from climbing further up your hair follicle.
Deep Condition: When your hair is damaged, it might need a little extra love. Along with conditioning after every wash, use a deep conditioner two-to-three times a week as needed. The extra moisture will help to repair split ends and prevent further damage. Start at the nape of your neck and focus on the ends of your hair. Leave your treatment on for up to ten minutes while in the shower. Rinse with cold water after to seal in moisture. Influensters love Aussie's Moist 3-Minute Deep Conditioner.
Don’t Brush Wet Hair: Brushing through hair after it has just been washed also contributes to breakage. Instead, apply a serum or leave in conditioner to the ends of your hair and use a wide-tooth comb to gently de-tangle. Starting at the bottom and working your way up is a great way to avoid damage. Influensters give Paul Mitchell Smoothing Super Skinny Serum a 4.8-star rating.
Avoid Heat: While it’s easier said than done, the best way to reverse the damage on your locks is to put down your straightener. Instead, try an easy up-do or going an extra day between washing. As a rule of thumb, you should only use heat on your hair every three days at most. If you must blow dry your hair, use a heat protecting spray like Not Your Mother's In A Heartbeat Blow Dry Accelerator Spray which speeds up dry time and protects.
