I will be the first girl to admit that I damaged my hair really badly. I didn’t embrace my curly hair when I was in high school. I wanted straight hair, and I would straight it every single day. Then one day I decided that I wanted to Japanese straighten my hair. Let me tell you, this was the worst thing I could have done to my hair. My hair was so brittle and it was no longer soft. It also had so many split ends that it looked so thin on the bottom.
When I graduated college, I realized I needed to make a change with my hair. My hair is so much softer and looks so much healthier. It is also so much softer. Here are my tips & tricks to repair your dry, damaged hair.
Although I loved having long hair, I knew I needed to cut off all of my split ends. As a result, my hair was shoulder length for a couple of months. I learned to embrace my hair and it was so much healthier already.
2. Use a Good Shampoo and Conditioner
In college, I didn’t care about the shampoo or conditioner that I was using to wash my hair. I thought it didn’t matter, but ladies and gents, it does matter. I found the best shampoo and conditioner for my hair type, and it has made all of the difference. I did my research and I found sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner is a great way to help maintain healthy hair.
3. Hair Masks
I never used to use hair masks. I didn’t think they were necessary and I thought they were a waste of money. My hair is less frizzy and looks so much better after I started using hair masks. I love Aussie’s 3 Minute Miracle for my deep conditioning mask. I use this about once or twice a week. I also use a deep conditioning oil on my dry hair once a week. I absolutely love my hair masks and I can’t live without them.
4. Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day
For my whole entire life, I thought I had to wash my hair every single day. Until I discovered the greatest hair product ever: dry shampoo. Now, I wash my hair every other day. This has not only helped the health of my hair, but it also has saved me so much time in the mornings. I highly recommend Batiste’s Dry Shampoo. They have so many amazing scents and a bottle lasts me a couple of months.
