Hair is amazing because it accentuates our look just as much as putting on a killer outfit. But sadly, hair can get damaged quite easily and bringing it back to life can seem like an endless challenge. But it truly doesn’t have to be! Here are some easy ways that you can restore your damaged hair faster than you can say L’Oréal.
Go For The Avocado
Avocados are full of vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids, all the things you’ll need to restore your hair to its natural luster. So just mash a ripe avocado with one egg and apply it to your wet hair. Well, hello, silky gorgeous locks!
Butter It Up
Is your hair so dry and brittle that you look like Meryl Streep in Into The Woods? Well, massage a small amount of butter, then cover your hair with a shower cap for 30 minutes and shampoo as usual, and you’ll notice how glossy and shiny your hair will be, almost instantly.
Try Olive Oil
Sometimes, all your hair needs is to get its moisture back, so warm up ½ cup of olive oil, but don’t boil it. Then rub it in your hair, making sure you cover the tresses with a plastic bag. Then wrap your hair in a towel and wait for 45 minutes before rinsing it off with shampoo.
Whip It Up With Apple Cider Vinegar
If you’re a bottled blonde, then you’ll need to reach for the apple cider vinegar and combine 1 teaspoon of it, with 2 tablespoons of olive oil, and 3 egg whites. Then rub the mix into your limp or damaged hair. Cover it up for 30 minutes using a shower cap and then rinse.
Don’t Just Wash It, UV Protect It
Do you love to sunbathe or spend a lot of time at the pool? Then you’ll want to put a swim cap on or the sun will wreak havoc and can cause your scalp line to burn and peel. Also, if you love pools with chlorine, the cap will prevent frizzing or thinning, and keep your hair color from fading.
Just Trim It
Sometimes, the best way to revive damaged hair is to get a nice cut with layers. But make sure to follow it up with the use of shampoo, conditioner, and styling products that can help restore your hair rather than damage it further.
Don’t Blow It
If your hair is damaged and in the process of being repaired, don’t make it worse by blow-drying it. While you’re at it, you may want to put your flat iron and other heated tools away, unless you really want to cook the life out of your tresses.
Find The Balance
Look for a gentle shampoo that has a pH of 4.5 to 5.5. In fact, sulfate-free shampoos and conditioners contain natural oils and herbs that can help repair damaged hair.
Give Your Hair A Break
If you shampoo every single time you shower, you’re stripping your hair of its natural protective oils. Worst yet, you’re turning it brittle and dry, making split ends a reality. But if you really need a pick-me-up, then try using a dry shampoo in between washes. Dry shampoos are far gentler, and it only takes a tiny bit to go a long, long way.
