When your hair looks good, you feel good. You do you best to keep it healthy, but daily washing and heat styling can take its toll, resulting in dry, damaged locks that feel like straw. Luckily, there are simple steps you can take to protect your hairstyle. The master stylists at Fantastic Sam’s in Littleton, CO, are here with expert advice to help you repair the damage and ensure your cut and color look great every day.
Get Regular Trims
The easiest way to remove split ends, refresh your hairstyle, and provide extra body is to cut off the damaged hair. The damage will most likely be concentrated at the tips, but your stylist may recommend cutting your hair a bit shorter to remove length that shows the earliest signs of damage.
Use Leave-In Conditioner
If your hair is dry all over and you struggle with split ends, a leave-in conditioner may help. Wash your hair as usual, then put a small amount of conditioner in your hands and apply it evenly throughout, paying special attention to the ends. The type of leave-in conditioner you need will depend on your hair type and texture and whether you dye it, so ask your stylist for recommendations.
Try Oil Treatments
Using oil conditions your hair and restores moisture to your scalp. Try a treatment at home using olive, coconut, or argan oil. Simply massage the oil into your hair, wait 15 minutes, then rinse. If you’re hesitant to try this at home, ask your stylist for a treatment the next time you visit the salon for a cut and color.
