Is your hair dry, brittle, snapping, breaking, limp, dead? Then your hair is damaged and needs some repairing.

No worries these are some tips on how to get your hair back to healthy easily at home.
When you color your hair you rob it of its natural proteins that keep it health and naturally beautiful. This also goes for any type of styling that involves heat. If you eat more foods with protein you will see results in a couple of weeks. These foods include fish, most meats, eggs, dairy products just about any animal products. You could also try vitamins or protein shakes. If you are looking for a jump start to getting protein in your hair there are a couple of conditioning tricks.
- Extra shampoo
You take and egg and wash it into your hair like shampoo scrub for a while and then rinse out. You can use your regular shampoo and conditioner afterwards if you like. Your hair soaks up the protein in the eggs pretty quickly allowing this to work.
- Overnight conditioning
You take mayonnaise and comb it through your hair cover in plastic wrap and leave it in over night. Then in the morning you wash it out.
Both of the techniques get fast results when I tried them I could tell the difference after just one try. You can use these once a week or as often as you like.
Washing and Drying
Did you know that it takes a couple of days for your roots to dry. Strange but true, the rest of your hair dries out much faster. Here are some healthy washing and drying tips
- It is best to wash your hair every two or three days unless you use a lot of heat on your hair regularly.
- If you own a blow dryer that has temperature settings try putting them on low. Drying your hair make take a little longer but you are minimizing the damage.
- If you have limp hair that lies flat and has no body it's most likely to full of moisture try washing less.
- It is best to towel dry your roots really well and let the rest of your hair air dry.
There are so many hair brushes for every kind of styling and hair they really should come with instructions. One thing you should know is that you should always use a soft bristled brush when your hair is wet or you risk it snapping even for healthy hair. Round brushes should be used for styling but not regular brushing or when your hair is wet. It is best to comb through hair when it is wet rather than using a brush. Boar bristled brushes are really good for your hair. The bristles have nutrients your hair will soak up and have the right about of flexibility to not break your hair. Who knew what you used to brush your hair made such a difference.
