Ways to Fix Dry and Damaged Hair
There are many ways dry, damaged, and split end hair can be fixed. Follow some of these steps to help improve your hair.
1. Get on a healthy diet filled with all the necessary food groups. Healthy hair starts from the inside. Salmon is the best thing to eat, its loaded with high protein and filled with vitamin B-12 and iron. Dark green Vegetables are a good source of vitamins A and C and also contain iron and calcium. Beans are also an important part of your hair-care diet, they contain a lot of protein that promotes hair growth. Avoid fatty and starchy foods.
2.Cut of every inch of hair that is damaged. If you want healthy hair you must cut off the damaged.Trim every 6 weeks. Try to use coated or covered rubber bands to prevent split ends. Brush your hair when it is dry, not when its wet. Its best to use a wide toothed comb.
3. Shampoo often. I shampoo once a day, If i don't my hair looks so greasy
4. Always keep a blow dryer at least 6 inches away from your head as the heat badly damages your hair. If possible allow hair to air dry once in awhile or use the cool setting on your blow dryer.
5. The best way to keep your hair healthy is by choosing the best conditioner. The primary goal of a conditioner is to treat the hair after being shampooed to keep it nourished and tamed. All types of hair need to be conditioned to stay shinny and flexible. The most effective hair conditioners keep ones hair moisturized and add gloss. Conditioners remind me of what fabric softeners are to clothing. The conditioner helps replace the natural oils removed by the shampoo
