Sometimes it doesn’t matter how much you try to take care of your hair, the summer heat is going to take a toll on it. But don’t let that stop you from protecting it as much as possible. If you notice your hair is starting to change colors, getting split ends or other damage, it’s better to address the issue now rather than later. The good thing is repairing your heat-damaged hair isn’t as difficult as you may think. With the proper hair products for Remy hair, you’ll be back in shape in no time.
Trim Those Split Ends
The first thing you need to do is identify any split ends you have and get them trimmed. Split ends aren’t going to repair themselves. In fact, they will likely only get worse the longer you let them go. And you don’t even have to trim a significant amount off. Less than an inch of trimming will make a huge difference in giving your hair a great appearance again.
Keep Your Hair Moisturized
The summer heat will dry out your hair significantly. Using a sulfate free shampoo and conditioner will help the process, but sometimes you need even more than that. Your hair is most likely damaged more significantly from the tips through about the midshaft point. The roots don’t get as dry, since there are natural oils by your scalp to keep them hydrated. So when you’re applying your leave-in conditioner, focus on those areas to get the best results.
Your hair went through a lot if it suffered heat damage, so it needs to be treated gently to get back to normal. Brush your hair as little as possible, and use the fewest amount of strokes as possible when you do brush it. The best sulfate free shampoo and conditioner will help ease your hair back to normal, and it’s gentle enough to be used on heat-damaged hair.
Add Color if Needed
If you already had color in your hair, you may have noticed the color fading a bit after being in the sun. Sometimes even a natural hair color will fade slightly. You can add some color back into your hair if you want to make your hair look great immediately. Color can hide heat-damaged to an extent, but remember you still need to address the underlying issues we’ve talked about already.
