Picture of damaged hair
As all of us girls already know heat is extremely damaging to our hair. It's ok if we use a small amount of heat, but too much is not healthy for your hair. One of the things that can happen to your hair because of it is split ends. Split ends is the splitting and fraying of the hair shaft due to the excessive use of heat and mechanical stress. Breakage is another cause of heat damage. Breaking of the hair is because of constant heat exposure. Heat is not the only reason for damaged hair. For example, coloring( bleaching and dying) your hair is really damaging. Actually any chemicals put into the hair is not healthy.
Solutions and ways to repair damaged hair: If you want to straighten your hair or blow dry your hair that is fine, just do not put heat on your hair everyday. I put heat in my hair only once a week and I see a big difference. As for coloring, try using ammonia free dyes.
Repairing damaged hair is easy, but it takes time and patience. There are a lot of hair masks and hair treatments to help your hair and nurse it back to health. Hot oil treatments help your hair a lot, it rebuilds your hair from breaking and also keeps the hair moisturized. The hot castor oil treatment is a popular treatment used to fix damaged hair. I am sure there are plenty of oil treatments at your nearest beauty supply store.
