Hey! If you’re someone who likes to style hair with heat tools, listen up! We need to talk about heat damaged hair. We know it's a real bummer to have hair that's fried, dried, and just plain unhealthy-looking but don’t worry, we are here to guide you through this process of dealing with heat damaged hair.
Firstly, let’s talk about what exactly is heat damaged hair. Well, the hair that got penalty by heat-styling tools like straighteners, curling wands, or blow dryers turns hair into heat damaged hair.
Hair structure of heat damaged hair:
Heat damages and breaks the cuticles of the hair. Cuticles are the outer protective layer of hair that keeps the hair protected and moisturized. The heat enters the cuticle, penetrates the cortex, and burns the protein and moisture of hair resulting in high porosity and dry, rough, brittle texture.
Signs of hair that is heat damaged:
- Split ends and flyaways
- Faded color
- Loss of sleekness in straight hair
- Loss of bounciness in curly hair
How to manage heat damaged hair:
Remember always that the best way to treat heat damaged hair is to prevent it in the first place. But if it’s too late and your hair has already been cooked by the heat of styling tools then you can take the following steps:
Go for a haircut:
One thing is certain, you can maintain heat damaged hair but you cannot cure them all. So, the best way to get rid of these hair is to cut them off. Go for some decent regular haircuts that will help you get rid of the burned hair texture so that you can welcome your new beautiful strands.
Cut those split ends:
The ends of your hair are most damaged as they have been heated by the styling tools for the longest time. Cutting split ends will prevent them from further splitting and causing more damage. Cutting split ends also gives a smooth and neat look to your hair.
Change the way you dry your hair:
Instead of drying your wet hair with a hot blow dryer, consider air drying. If you are in a hurry and can’t wait for the air to dry your hair then choose the cooling air option in the blow dryer to perform the drying action. If you can’t do that either then keep the heat temperature at a moderate and safe level. Also, pick a microfiber or a cotton towel to soak dampness in hair.
Use mild shampoos:
The hair that has been damaged by heat are very sensitive and prone to damage. It is important to keep them safe from strong and harsh shampoos.
